Happy Saturday!!! In today’s post, I am sharing the beauty secrets of Italian women from my most favorite Italian woman, Daniela. Daniela and I met working together at Bella Santé back in 2008. When I met her I was star struck! I had never known anyone so glamorous with such a fantastic fashion sense. I later found out that she was born to parents who immigrated here from Italy- it was no surprise to me that her aesthetic was influenced by a country with some of the most beautiful women in the world! Today she is sharing her point of view!  Ashli: “So, having been born Italian and raised inRead More →

Happy Monday! I hope your week is off to a great start!  In today’s post, I’m going to share with you my favorite products and beauty routines for the summer! 1. Get your brows and lashes tinted No one wants to apply a brow pencil or heavy mascara if you are at the beach or by the pool in the hot sun! See your Aesthetician and get your brows tinted so that you don’t have to fill them in. Lash tinting can also make your eyes pop without makeup! It’s one of my secret weapons for summer beauty! 2. Let your hair air dry AirRead More →

Hey y’all! It’s just about time for Baby Adaleine to arrive and I wanted to share some of my must-have products that I pack in my hospital bag for postpartum self care.  If you’ve had a baby before, you know there is nothing like that first shower after you deliver. I make sure that I bring things for the shower that give me a sensory experience, which is also a far cry from being in the sterile hospital room!  A Massage oil/Composition Oil– I pack this for during labor and I use it to moisturize my skin afterwards. It contains soothing essential oils that smell heavenly and also help to calm theRead More →

Hi Ashli! I am newly pregnant and I am very concerned about preventing stretch marks. Are there any effective products on the market and is there anything I can do to prevent them? Thank you so much. Sincerely yours, Stretching Mama-to-Be Dear Stretching Mama-to-Be, Oh my darling, I completely understand this concern! Stretch marks are essentially scar tissue on the surface of the skin due to rapid changes not only in tension on the skin but also due to the hormonal changes of pregnancy. Currently, there are no proven products on the market to prevent them, and in many cases they appear to be genetic.Read More →

Hello and happy Monday my loves! It has recently been brought to my attention by some of my favorite dermatologists that they are seeing patients come in with botched (and sometimes dangerous-having counterfeit product injected!) injections due to their going to someone who was “cheaper”. Let’s talk about this! 1. Good injections aren’t cheap, and cheap injections aren’t good.  If you see a Groupon or some type of “deal” on injections that claims an incredibly low price (like, under $200 for the entire forehead, for example) stay away! You should expect to pay between $10-20 per unit of Botox. This is industry standard. The forehead is an averageRead More →

A bright pink gloss This ALWAYS makes me feel better and more put together.Read More →

As many of you know, this past summer I moved to North Carolina from Boston. With my relocation came the opportunity to join the Synergy Team of Synergy Spa and Aesthetics in Raleigh! Today I am sharing with you the story behind Synergy from the owner herself, Anna Churchill!   Ashli: “Anna, I would love to know first what inspired you to start Synergy Spa.“ Anna: “I always wanted to have my own business. I didn’t necessarily mind working for other people, when I was younger I thought that was how it was supposed to be- you work for someone else. I didn’t have anyone in my familyRead More →

TGIF loves! Hopefully you have had some time away from work this week and reaching Friday feels like a breeze! In today’s post I’m going to be sharing some of my favorite products to create your perfect look for New Year’s Eve!  Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadow (shown in Gold Goddess) Use this on your entire lid (below the crease!) It is so gorgeous and isn’t over-done when it dries! The most natural and flattering looking lashes (that still give you some high-drama) are demi’s- they are longer on the ends which really opens the eye! I love these Ardell Demi WispiesRead More →
