Friday Favorites: Purple Hair and More

 Happy Friday the 13th everyone! 
I know, it's been a minute since I've done a friday favorites. Okay, it's been 2 weeks.
I skipped out on my FF's last week, but I explain that on my post here. No worry though,
I'm back and I'm ready for this weeks 5 Friday Favorites. If you missed 2 weeks ago, it was
all about Health and Beauty. which of course, another beauty blog needed to happen since,
duh, "Makeup" and Modifieds. and health just because that's the new thing. and my new
thing. And so I give you this weeks friday favorites. (and maybe with a few extras from
my skipped week)


1. Purple Hair.

On Wednesday I went in to get my hair done. It was a very anticipated appointment because
not only was in my first appointment since our wedding in April. but it was the first time in
a year that I've been able to dye my hair (and cut it) in any other way other then blonde. We
spent the last year before the wedding just getting back to my natural dirty blonde hair as
much as we could, we kept it long, and just maintained it. But for all of you whom know me,
ya'll know that Ashlee needs adventure when it comes to her hair. I've always put funky colors
in my hair for as long as I can remember. My plan was to dye my hair red, like rihanna red aka
I wanted to be a fire-engine. but, things happen and plans change. When my hair lady suggested
purple, I let out a huge GULP! and tossed around the different ideas of how I would be okay with
purple hair. This is the one color I had never messed with before. But, it doesn't take much to
convince me and so we whisked together some platinum blonde for my bangs and peek-a-boos,
and then mixed together a few different blue and purple shades to custom make my hair color.
And I'm so glad we did. I am literally obsessed. We also cut off about 3 inches! oops!!

2.  Funny E-Cards.
My friend Monica, or how we call her "MOMica" because she practically raised Speedracer,
and I can send E-cards back and forward all day long. and this one, well it's just too funny.

3. Kale, Everything!
I've always known the health benefits of Kale. High Iron content, low in calories, high 
in fiber, zero fat, filled with powerful antioxidants, anti-inflammatory food, high in 
vitamin A and C, high in calcium, and it's a great detox food. maybe the best really. But,
I never reached for it at the store. I always went for Spinach leaves, which is still good. 
I finally took the plunge and grabbed Kale, and boy did I make the right decision. I have
found use for Kale every single day in all meals and snacks. I've only had Kale in my 
diet for a week and I literally have 200 recipes already. Want me to do a Kale Recipe
post with some of my yummy recipes? Let me know!

4.  Liz at Fitness Blonde.
When I started this new blog of mine in April, I also took the plunge by unfollowing a lot 
of old blogs I didn't really read anymore. And I searched for new blogs and new friends. 
That is when I came across Fitness Blonde. The blog is a beautiful, motivational blog about 
being healthy, being confident, and being blonde. Some of my favorite things of course. 
Besides the fact that I have purple hair now. I've become good friends with Liz over the last
month and a half, and it's safe to say that she is one of my FAVORITE bloggers and quite 
possible one of my favorite people in life. She is so unique, inspirational, and beautiful. Her 
soul is quite beautiful as well. Go give her some love over at her humble abode!!!

5. Summertime Journaling.
My passion is writing; which is why I started blogging back in 2007. I have kept a journal
since I was a kid and have been writing nonstop. When I was a kid, all I had was a pen
and a notepad. No laptop, no cellphone, no iPod or iPad. Just me and a notebook. I miss
those days. And so I have tried my best over the last couple years to keep a notebook near
me so I can return to my roots and just feel free while I write on that clean, lined paper. 
Summer is my favorite time to Journal. I love grabbing my yoga mat and some iced tea while
I lay out in the backyard and just write away. It's refreshing. And San Diego's weather makes
it so worth my while anyways. 

6. Scentsy.
I have been an Independent Scentsy Consultant for about 2 years now, and It's been a fun
journey. I absolutely love being apart of the Scentsy family, my team is a group of awesome 
people, and my darling husband is super supportive of my business. Selling Scentsy makes it 
easy for me to continue to be a full time student and still work. If you've never heard of Scentsy,
it's a candle alternative. It's no soot, flameless, wick less and totally awesome! It's a ceramic
warmer that heats up scented wax. We also have a bath-body line. And "to-go" scents for your car
or hotel room and gym bags. We are practically Mary Poppins. Want to checkout my website??
I have an ONLINE Party open NOW in celebration for my Birthday on the 18th. Feel free 
to ask me any questions. FIND ME HERE!!

And there you have it - 6 of my FAVORITE things this friday! I mean, let's be real, they are
always my favorites but this week I thought I would share them with you all and maybe they
will become some of your favorite things too, because then we could all be twins! #twinning

Happy Friday Everyone! Enjoy your weekend - tonight, we celebrate my birth!! (even though 
my birthday isn't until wednesday the 18th). It's my birthday week/month. I do what I want. 

Kick off your boots, Grab a Cold Beer, and Stay a While!
