Just Peachy

Hi Dolls!
Hope you all have had a great week so far. I am sorry I have not posted in a while. Life has been crazy busy!
This post is a bunch of firsts for me.
My first mini photo shoot. My first time posting pictures of myself on the blog. And my first time blogging about what I myself am wearing.
Kind of exciting! :)
I can't lie, I am not much of one to have a serious face on ever.
If you know me, I am either smiling or laughing out loud, usually at myself! And I have never been a huge fan of my photo taken either. Though I have to say when it was all said and done, it was a riot taking these photos. 
My girlie friend Dawn shot these beautiful pictures and I was lucky enough to have some great girlfriends there cheering me on, making me laugh my butt off! So I may just have to add a blooper in just for kicks.
I chose to share this look with you all because it's fun, relaxed and a flirty girl next door look. Pair this look with beautiful beach waves and natural makeup with medium deep contouring and you have yourselves this look.
This set of jeans truly is one of the comfiest pairs I have ever owned. They work  great with your curves, but remain stretchy and comfy at the same time. They are a fabulous dark wash that have an amazing slimming affect on the legs and make your "toosh" look amazing.
Another plus is they go with just about everything.
I am loving this peach sweater. It is so effortless with a beautiful hint of sparkle. Peach may just be one of my favorite colors. Blondes, brunettes and red heads can all pull this color off and look fabulous.
Shoes shoes shoes! I just can never get enough of them! Ask my husband, they take over our entire home and garage.  
This nude pair of wedges walked into my life this spring and have walked many miles with me. They go great with a boot cut jean, flare, skinny and boyfriend fit. Not to mention, the best part is they were less than 20$ and you can wear them for hours.

Sweater//Forever 21 (similar here and here )

 I had to add that last photo because I love to laugh! And I did a lot of it during this shoot :) I cannot wait to do more. I have been doing lots of fall shopping so there will be plenty to come.
 I hope you enjoyed this post. Let me know if you guys would like me to put a certain outfit together for a future post; date night, girls night out, rocker chic, beach day or whatever comes to mind. Thanks for following.
Have yourselves a great rest of your week!


COLOR Me Pretty

Hi Dolls :)

Thinking about changing up your strands for Fall 2013? It’s just hair. What do you have to lose?!

Take the plunge with me and keep on reading :)

Dimension is key for this seasons color trends. It’s about enhancing your natural tones by kicking it up a couple notches.
My beachy buttery blondes be sure to ask for blended sunny highlights with deep golden low-lights. Jen, Cameron, Blake, Kate and Rachel are all beautiful examples. Long, medium or short you can
still be a blonde bombshell with lovely golden hues. 

For hair like honey, ask for a shadowing affect at your root which will make you a deeper blonde. It is super seductive and sultry with a deeper root cascading to a honey golden blonde. Just take a look at these babes below.
Flawless and fabulous!

Strawberry Goldilocks be sure and go for a richer golden red hue this season. It will give you a seductive and sultry look.
 I am so jelly of red heads. How can you not drool over Emma, Amy and Isla's gorgeous red locks, right?!
Red to me just rings sexy! It makes me want to take the plunge from blonde to red this season :)

Golden sunny brown gals be sure and aim for subtle honey and caramel laced highlights.
From Maria and JLO to Jessica and Kate, these girls are style icons.
They are always changing up their brunette locks and always keeping it fresh.
If your locks are chocolate brown, go for fine streaks of gold and copper enhanced highlights with face framing layers. Or kick it up a notch and ask for these golden tones towards the ends for an ombre look to give a fresh twist on your brunette bombshell locks.
 I myself can not stop admiring the gorgeous gold tones in Minka and Khloe's hair.
 If you have gorgeous long cascading locks, you must try the ombre look this Fall.
My rich deep browns, go daring for a deep dark all-over hue.
If you are one with that fabulous olive skin tone that everyone wishes they had, you must kick it up a notch and go DARK!
The Kardashian sisters are great examples of this gorgeous hue.
All of these looks I have mentioned add warmth and richness for a flawless head of locks.
Still unsure what is the right look for you? Take a picture of yourself and email me at profoundlyash@gmail.com
Or go have a consultation with an experienced stylist that's recommended in your area.
I love that color alone can give hair an amazing dramatic change.
So do blondes or brunettes have more fun?!
Take the plunge this season and do something fun and different!
Life is just too darn short :)
Have yourselves a great rest of your week.



Statement Sweatshirts

Hi Dolls :)
 Welcome back to the work week. Hope you all had a fun weekend! Four more days and we have ourselves another ;)
Fall attire is in full swing. Is anyone overwhelmed yet with Fall fashion? Remember that shopping should always be fun and never a chore.
I wanted to share an easy, fun and flirty piece to add to your wardrobe this Fall that will not break the bank.
Statement sweatshirts are absolutely fabulous for this Fall.
Don’t get me wrong, I love getting dressed up and making a statement. But sometimes I just want to be comfy, but still look great. And yes, when most of you think of a sweatshirt, you are probably thinking of a lazy day on the couch or pregame tailgating.
Not anymore!

1. Delias
That’s what’s so fun about these stunning sweatshirt pieces. They are comfy and versatile. You can dress them up or down. Pair them with a great leather legging or a great pair of boyfriend jeans. Pop on a ballet flat or dress it up with a pointy toe pump.
There are lovely details in each one of these pieces. From animal print to lace, to sparkle and bedazzle, who can complain?!
Take for example the animal print piece from Forever 21. If I were to dress this piece up, I would pair it with a great distressed black skinny jean, a red lip, black studded pumps, diamond studded earrings, a fabulous clutch and a great fedora hat. Still comfy, but looking fabulous.
Well then how do you simply dress this piece down? I would pair the same animal print sweatshirt with a great denim boyfriend jean or even a flare leg jean. Add a red ballet flat and your favorite black and silver bangles to achieve a comfy, yet stylish look.

Hope you all have an amazing week. Let me know if you have any questions or would like me to create and outfit for you out of one of these pieces.




Falling into Fall

Hi Doll's :)
Happy weekend to you all!
Can you believe Fall is just around the corner?! I tell ya, this summer is going by so so fast. I still have summer clothes with tags on them ;)
Every store I run in lately, I cannot keep my hands off from buying the Fall season styles. No complaints here, it is my favorite season.
I love everything about Fall from style, beauty, tailgating, bonfires, weather, apple cider, rooting the Spartys on in football- I could go on forever.
I am loving the look of all the modern bohemian styles coming this fall.
Everything from fringe, to feminine flowy dresses and great booties, to floppy hats and statement headbands.
We see bits and pieces of the hippie spirit shining through this fun trend.
 It is effortlessly chic, comfy, stylish and simple.

Here is a super fun and flirty look that I put together for you all.
A great look to wear to a fun concert, out on the town grabbing cocktails and dinner, shopping with your gal pals or a date night with your someone special. 

Dress: Billabong
Fringe Hobo Bag: Purse Boutique
Headband: Grace and Lace Co
Floppy Hat: 6pm
Bootie (great bargain): Mossimo
Necklace: Forever 21
Bangle: Windsor
Ring: Forever 21

I gave you the option to pair this flowly dress with either a turban headband or a floppy hat. Either look is great with this dress. You could also go with the turban headband and pair it with a great pair of cowboy boots.
This look and these boots make me want to go to Nashville Ya'll!!

Hope you all have an amazing memorable weekend :)




July Faves

Hi Doll's!
Hope you all have enjoyed every bit of your summer this year.
I know I am not ready for summer to end quite yet. I wanted to give you all a rundown on my favorite products that I purchased this July.
 I am loving each one of these products and can't wait to share them with you!
Australian Gold 15SPF Bronzer Spray
I have to thank my mama Sharona for finding this amazing buy. 
It is my go-to SPF essential in my beach bag this year. 
This stuff has amazing coverage, smells deliciously beachy and gives your body an amazing sun-kissed glow.
Better yet, your skin stays smooth and protected with no stickiness to worry about.
At the end of the day, your skin is beautifully bronzed.

Beauty Blender
I am still bananas for my beauty blender! Makes my foundation application easy and my face looks airbrushed. Please refer here to see my full post.

MAC Skinfinish in Gold Deposit

This is a beautiful bronzing highlighter. I use it to define my face where the light hits. It has been a staple in my makeup kit for years now.
I replenished it this July because it never disappoints.
The pigments in this skinfinish are out of this world.
It is a great product to build with depending on the look you are going for.
It adds such a healthy, shimmery glow that makes you feel and look like a bronzed goddess.

MAC Pink Nouveau
Who doesn't love a great pink lipstick?! One of my TOP 5 lipsticks of all time.
I found this beauty in July and cannot stop wearing it. It's a beautiful Barbie, bubblegum pink. 
This lipstick has cool toned pigments and great staying power.
It goes on satiny smooth and compliments any set of lips with the right attitude :)
If you are looking for a dupe at the drugstore that is a close second, try Revlon's "Stormy Pink."

MAC Creme Cup
 I have been looking for the perfect nude pink lipstick ever since the 7th grade and I finally found it 15 years later.
 This lipstick is an amazing baby pink that goes great with a natural daytime look or a night time smokey eye. It gives your lip a beautiful shine while moisturizing all day.
I feel this truly would go great with any and all skin tones. It has great color pigments and I find it lasts nicely.
For a close second and my favorite dupe to this product, try Wet 'n' Wild- Think Pink.
Click here for purchase.

NYX Lip Liner in PINKY and NUDE PINK
NYX slim lip pencils are a must in my makeup kit. I found these liners at Ulta for $3.49 each. At buy 1 get 1 for 50% off, I had to buy a few to try out.
These liners are fabulous!
They glide on smoothly and effortlessly.
Easily blendable, providing great long-lasting wear for all day kissable peckers.
Another great plus to the NYX liner brand is that it doesn't bleed.
I have found that pairing NYX Pinky liner with MAC's Pink Nouveau and NYX Nude Pink liner with MAC's Cream Cup, make for a beautiful set of lips.
Test out your favorite colors at Ulta.

Revlon Fearless Nail Polish
I refer to this nail polish as the perfect coraly poppy shade of summer.
This polish packs a fun and flirty punch of summer on any mani or pedi. 
A great drugstore buy with great lasting ability. Touch up with a clear coat every 5 days.

My go-to hair style this summer is the definitely the hair donut, in other words "The Sock Bun."
A great way to fake an expensive looking hairdo.

Protects your hair from heat damage and adds amazing shine to your locks.
