The Darling Nomadess: About Me

About Me

Hey there, Darling...

I'm Ashliegh!

5 Fun Facts:

1. In high school, I was a band geek and I didn’t just play one instrument, try three: flute, oboe, and trumpet. Flute was my first and favorite instrument. I was introduced to oboe in high school and then picked up trumpet on my own after my brother dropped out of band. I also served as a majorette!
2. I competed in pageants from age 15 - age 23. I used to be incredibly shy and at the first pageant, I froze up on stage during the on-stage question portion! This event was a pivotal moment and made me realize the importance of public speaking skills. Pageants have helped me open up and develop a voice in my community.
3. The Darling Nomadess started as a New Year’s resolution. With the rise of Pinterest, my friends encouraged me to start a blog and pin my daily outfits back in 2012. With a little sugar and spice and everything nice, The Darling Prepster was created! From there, I've gone through two rebrands - The Darling Daily, and finally arriving at The Darling Nomadess. Read my first post here
4. I have a strong entrepreneurial spirit. I started my first “business” when I was 9 years old trying to sell homemade lip glosses to friends. At 15, I created a small business where I made corsages and boutonnieres for school dances at local high schools. I’m not quite sure what my next adventure in business will be but I do know that I want to own my own company some day.
5. I plan my life in 6 month increments. After graduating from college, I realized that I'm not ready for a full-time job that places me in Suburbia, USA. There is so much in this world for me to explore so for now, I enjoy taking seasonal resort/hospitality positions and traveling the world!
