For those of you who have been keeping up with my recent posts, you know I am all about transitioning into fall. I am continuing my "fall transition" posts, but now I am taking it over to the beauty department. Nothing makes a woman feel better than a fresh coat of paint on her nails, well in my opinion. Like many, I too struggle choosing a color at the nail salon. There are so many options! Now that it is fall though, I am saying goodbye to my light colors and vibrant colors, and embracing darker shades.
Here are some of the nail polishes I am loving this season. Dark blues are definitely a must. One of my favorites of the darker blues, (not displayed here) is by Essie, "After School Boy Blazer". Another color that is always a fall-favorite is red. Whether it be a deep red, ruby red, shimmery red, almost any red nail-polish you use this fall will be killer choice. Another amazing choice for fall, metallics, specifically gold. If you want to make a bold statement with your nails this season, I definitely would "go for the gold". I have linked below some gold polishes that are beautiful and not tacky.
What fall colors will you be painting on your nails this season? Share with me below in the comments. As always, thank you for reading.

It's time to roll up the beach towels, box up the bikinis, and set your alarm clocks to a time way earlier than, dare I say, 12:00 o'clock in the afternoon. It is back to school! Even though me being the Miami girl I am wishes I could spend my days sleeping-in, shopping/lunching, and tanning by the pool, it is time to return to reality.
Today, I hosted the Back to School Fashion Show held by Blow N Dry Salon. As I spoke on the mic, for the very first time as a blogger, I realized that just because summer is over doesn't mean it means back to a "dull reality". I had lots of fun hosting, showing off new back to school trends as well as hairstyles created by the amazing hairstylists over at Blow N Dry
The event was a lot of fun. I got to taste some delicious cupcakes and see both little girls and juniors rule the runway. The girls modeled their school uniforms and clothing from Joy Boutique. Some of the little girls wore jewelry created by TAudrey in her Lil Miss Miami collection. Love it! I was so happy to be a part of this incredible event and I can't wait for this to be a yearly thing. Thanks to Jackie and the girls over at Blow N Dry for letting me host the fashion show and for putting on a terrific event.
So who knows where I'll be hosting next, this Miami blogger is up for whatever comes next. Watch out Miami, Ash is here to stay!
It is nighttime you cannot fall asleep. Tomorrow you have school/work and desperately need your rest, so what do you do?
My friends over at Brandbacker sent me the solution. Introducing Vita Sciences Maxasorb Melatonin Cream. This is the solution to your sleeplessness. This is a melatonin-based cream the you apply before bed and it will help you catch some Zzz's. This is the way to easily fall asleep without having to take prescription or over-the-counter pills.
Hope you survive Monday!
