Hey everyone!! I wanted to share a quick tutorial with everyone on how to use the new T3 Twirl 360! As most of you know, I don’t ever curl my hair but fell in love with this curler that I had to test it out and give everyone a quick how-to! I’ve also never used an iron that literally spins itself! This curling iron utilizes gyroscopic digital technology to detect the motion of your hand, and automatically propel the barrel in the desired direction. The application of the technology, typically used in space exploration, is a first for the hair tools category. Pretty awesome, if you ask me! Keep an eye out for a Youtube tutorial soon! For now, you get photos! Here is a quick start guide for those of you who have never used this curler before. There will be photos but if you’re in a hurry and want to test the curler out without photos, then this should be helpful!
my style du jour
Sorry it has been over a week since I have posted a Style du Jour! The internet at our house in Dominical was terrible so it has been a massive hassle to post or upload anything!! The house, itself, is more than amazing, so you would expect to have some badass internet. But no. :/
This was our first trip to the beach we found in Matapalo, Costa Rica! It was extremely secluded which was perfect to roam around and take photos. 🙂 I specifically bought this amazing dress for this trip and felt the beach was an ideal place to show it off! They turned out better than I thought they would!! Hope you all enjoy and I hope everyone enjoyed their holiday!!

I have been so excited to wear this dress and finally had the chance to! This gorgeous dress was originally purchased for a photoshoot but I had to try it on for myself before styling it for the model. It fit like a glove; absolutely perfect!! Needless to say… I kept the dress for myself instead!!

We definitely got quite a bit accomplished being at the ranch for 24 hours! With a quick 3 hour drive from Austin, we arrive, spend a few hours with the family and then sleep! We decided to go on a couple long walks/hog hunts/style du jour photoshoots and then headed back to the house to pack up and go back! Quickest ranch trip ever but I feel like we did more in those 24 hours than we normally do in a week! The weather was absolutely gorgeous so I finally got to take some Fall foliage photos, which I included at the bottom of the post! 🙂

Every quarter I get to write an article for my column, Ask Ashley, in Austin Woman Magazine. The past articles have ranged from what classic pieces to invest in to Splurge or Save content. From what feedback I have gathered, Splurge or Save articles are by far the best!
This month’s Ask Ashley is definitely my favorite of all of my articles and all of my Splurge or Saves! I mean, the two looks are practically identical and thousands of dollars apart in the cost. This goes back to my Target Style Series; you look absolutely stunning or cute and comfy without spending a ton of money.
Here is a bigger, split version if you couldn’t read the text in the others!
ALL FROM TARGET!!! Which equals Affordable!!
