Fashion Friday {Back to School}

I've had a crazy day of back to school shopping. I literally haven't sat down all day. Woke up bright and early with my little munchkin of an alarm clock. But it's the last few days of summer. I refuse to wake up early. I refuse to wake up before the sun. So I went back to sleep but that threw off the rest of the day of course. Back to school shopping turned into speed shopping. I'm just glad I had a small list from the teacher this year!
One of our favorite things to do before school is to get all the new clothes and then make outfits out of them and then do a fashion show. Since the day got away from us we are going to have to push that to tomorrow. But little miss definitely needed a date with her  mama today. I can't believe I'm going to have a 4th grader. I remember when I was in 4th grade! I got my first little boyfriend, I did cheerleading, I did the school talent show for the first time. I had short hair and bangs. 4th grade was a wild ride! We also didn't have dances we had skate parties in case you wanted to know. 
What are some of your 4th grade memories ?

Fashion Friday

 Summer is coming to an end and I'm kind of happy. I never really realized that I'm the type of person that needs some kind of routine. Too much vacation is a little boring. I start to get antsy to do something more with my time. 
I'm excited for what's coming up in the fall! Instead of only recording two songs it has turned into an EP. I will be headed to LA in September to record the rest of the songs and then everything will be released in the fall. I'm so excited for it to finally come out! I couldn't be more happier! 
Keep following along for release dates and follow me at @ashleyreedmusic

Fashion Friday {Hipster and Podcasts}

So I'm kinda obsessed with podcasts lately. I have learned that podcasts are my jam while doing long trips. I can't even listen music for every long because I still get tired. Which is a big no-no while driving! It makes me daydream about having my own podcast. What would I talk about? What kind of guests could I have on? Would anyone even listen? I just think they are so fun and you can talk about whatever you want. I am a talker! Do you have some favorite podcasts? If you could start a podcast what would you talk about?

Fashion Friday

There comes a time in a bloggers life where the time comes where you don't feel like writing anything. You don't feel like saying anything. You just want to live in the silence for a minute to decompress. I feel like that time has come for me. So with that said. Here's some pictures to look at while I gather my thoughts.....

Fashion Friday {Aphrodite}

Sometimes you just need to kick off your shoes and run around in the grass barefoot. With an impending thunderstorm behind you. It's the simple things that bring you joy! Makes me think how fun summer was growing up. Playing with all my cousins at my grandparents house by the lake. We definitely got into some shenanigans. Things I couldn't think of my kids doing now. Like playing in the gutter barefoot for example.
What types of things did you do as a kid during the summer?

Fashion Friday A hipster summer

 I'm getting kind of used to these summer thunderstorms. It's a nice break from this unbearable Georgia heat! You think I could deal having grown up in the California desert. But the south is an entirely different world. 
Sometimes in the summer I get into this rut. You know that feeling of needing a vacation from your vacation. Well it's kind of like that except I want something to do. I want to be busy again. Maybe its the cabin fever talking, the lack of social interaction {except for with children}. I've resulted in fake and sometimes fake drama on tv just to keep me company. It's really hard thinking of running off somewhere with the kids with the hubby. Any mom can relate that vacation with your kids is more work then staying at home. I have to physically, mentally and emotionally prepare myself for certain outings. 
Let's take the movies for instance. My three year old does NOT do the movies very well. 
He can't sit still. The only way to keep him contained is if I keep feeding him snacks. Mental noted sugar free snacks or feed him food and playtime before movies. Maybe that will tire him out beforehand. 
Doing arts and crafts
He has the attention span of well a three year old. Or like the dog from Up.. you know saying squirrel in the middle of everything. Yeah! That's my kid for sure. So I end up setting up and cleaning up in under 20 minutes most of the time. 
Any kind of water park/theme park/carnival is out unless I rope someone into helping me. Having an age gap between kids is rough in these cases because the older one wants to ride things the younger one can't.
What's left you ask? 
The pool. 
Yep that's the only thing they both like to do that also allows me a mental break. 
So unless you all have some other suggestions for me. 
I guess we will be at the pool for the next 6 weeks!
See you there!

Fashion Friday {Bring on the rain}

So I've almost completely broken up with Facebook. My private account that is. I've been having a lot of soul searching on social media. Also hearing a lot of peoples opinions on how no one can relate to each other anymore. No one knows how to talk to anyone anymore because they are constantly texting, messaging etc. I also don't like and I never liked how people will check my facebook before picking up a phone to call me or to visit me. So I am doing my part. I'm boycotting! I'm taking a stand. Social media will have its purpose for me. But if you want to know me for real you have to pick up a phone. You got to pay a visit! I hope this idea spreads but we live in strange times and I fear it's going to get worse. 
What is your opinion on social media and human life?
