Hi! My name is Ashlee and I have a slight major addiction to self-tanner and bronzer, among other things. Originally from Northern California, I’ve now relocated to a more glam city…Yes, that’s correct, Los Angeles. I’m pretty sure I came out of the womb self-tanning. When I’m not working my 9-5 (whose kidding…while I’m at my 9-5), I’m researching and buying the hottest products hitting the beauty market. I’ve almost come full circle in the beauty game moving from behind the counter to freelance to working for an e-commerce site that sells pretty much everything.
My skincare routine is my holy grail and I follow it religiously (truth be told I’m never without it…You call it crazy, I call it dedication). My daily make-up routine is simple..seriously.. (I swear…I’m out the door in 35 minutes tops!). I guess you can say I’ve been blessed (thank you mom and dad!) with skin that will pretty much stand up to everything. What I’m obsessed with (disclaimer…right now…): Dr. Perricone Face Finishing Moisturizer, Korres Monoi Oil Bronzing Powder, , MAC Crèmeblend Blush in Something Special, T3 Refresh Volumizing Dry Shampoo Light Tone and Bath & Body Works True Blue Spa Self-Tanning Lotion in Strike Gold.
Between working and experimenting, I spend most of my time just hanging out (I have plans of making it to law school…but we’ll see). I’m a jeans leggings and flip flops type of girl and I love (how cliché) the surf and sun. My plans for the immediate future…blogging for Painted Ladies..of course .
