Who runs the world? Kaylor. Ha! Kidding. Kinda…
This month’s VOGUE is a fun and inspiring read. Plus, nothing beats actually reading and flipping through a magazine.

2 | LOBS

People are probably so sick of hearing about Lobs but I’m still so obsessed with them! I’ve always been a long hair girl but the look of a long lob is so chic. This felt like the perfect haircut to get after I turned 25 this year. It feels very adult but also super fun! Plus, if I decide I want long hair I’m not that far away from it at this length. (you can check out my lob HERE)

3 | BRICK WALLS

I’ve always loved brick walls but thanks to my love for HGTV and pinning interior design on pinterest the love has turned into…LOVE LOVE. (Thats a thing…right??) I am constantly dreaming up plans for our current home and dream home. We currently live in a cookie cutter house but I love making areas of our home look like they have character.

4 | SMILEY THE GOLDEN RETRIEVER

Smiley just might be my favorite “person” to follow on Instagram(@smileydog1972)! Smiley is a golden retriever that was born without eyes. His owner adopted him and trained him to be a certified therapy dog. (I CAN’T HANDLE IT!! TOO SWEET!) You can read more of his story on his owners website. Every time I see a post from Smiley on Instagram it brightens my day!

5 | Luxe in the Rough Earrings

luxe

In case you couldn’t already tell…I’m a huge fan of my friend’s jewelry line, Luxe in the Rough! When we did the photoshoot I got to model a few of her pieces and fell in love with her Gold, Onyx and Labradorite earrings from her “Celebrate!” line. I’m already a huge fan of black, grey, and gold when it comes to my wardrobe so these are the perfect accessory for me! I also love that the labradorite stone has more of a grey color to it but when the light hits it just right you can see the blue. :)

PS – The 20% off Luxe in the Rough code for my readers doesn’t end until March 31st! Code: JBDay20

1 | American Apparel’s French Lilac

french-lilac

First of all I’m obsessed with the color Lilac in general. Second of all… LILAC NAIL POLISH. This was actually my first polish to purchase from American Apparel and I love it! I will definitely be buying more in the future. :)

2 | Joanna’s Signature Candle

candle

If you aren’t watching Fixer Upper on HGTV then you need to change that. I’ve been following Chip & Joanna Gaines since I saw the Fixer Upper preview a little over a year ago! I love their style and love for making old homes new again. Don’t be surprised if I move to Waco in the next year just to work with them. ;)

Anyways, THIS CANDLE. I love this scent. It’s very clean and smells just a great as Joanna’s designs you see on the show!

3 | Hey Cupcake!

hey-cupcake

In June my husband and I got to go to Austin with his family for a little vacation. I was finally able to taste the famous, Hey Cupcake! I got the little sample pack because I’m indecisive and maybe I have a sweet tooth. ;) My favorites were the Michael Jackson and Red Velvet!

4 | Jean Vest

5_summer-maxi-skirt

My jean vest quickly became part of my summer uniform! I love how it can be dressy and casual all at the same time.

5 | Voluminous Miss Manga

loreal-paris-miss-manga-mascara

I definitely fell for the commercial and I have no regrets. This mascara is LEGIT. It makes my eyelashes so much longer! I highly suggest it if you have short eyelashes like me or just want to make your already long eyelashes longer because that’s fun!

1 | Kimonos

I don’t really consider my style to be “boho” but I love the femininity of kimonos. I found the kimono jackpot at Forever 21 this past weekend. You should definitely check it out!

2 | All Wrapped Up Card Set by Kate Spade

zoom-v1-TC6106

Kate Spade has done it again with their beautiful stationary! I’m a sucker for anything gold, striped, pink and with bows.

3 | Crop Tops

Honestly, I was a little scared of the crop top because THAT IS SO 90’s!!!! But, Pinterest and friends have proved that fear wrong. I probably wont actually try this trend until it gets closer to summer but I’ve been keeping my eyes open for them when I go shopping because you never know when you’ll find the perfect one!

4 | Flash Bobbi Set

bando-hair

Bando is every girl’s best friend when it comes to her hair. I love their bobbi sets! Sometimes I forget how cute bobbi pins can be and I love that Bando has brought them back.

5 | Revlon ColorBursts

revlon-colorburst

My best friend got me hooked on these. I’ve loved every shade I’ve gotten so far. My favorite by far though is “Showy Flamboyante” from their Matte line. I have picked most of mine out at Target because I usually find them 5-15% off using their Cartwheel app!

1 | 2014 Flip Around the World Desk Calendar

rifle-paper-cities-calendar

I got this calendar as a Christmas gift from one of my sweet co-workers and it sits next to my computer. I’m convinced Rifle Paper Co can do no wrong. All of the illustrations are beautiful and have my mind ready to travel!

2 | Remodelista

remodelista

I’m a home decor junkie and this book just has become an instant favorite! My grandmother gave me this book for Christmas and I have LOVED the inspiration it has given me for my home.

3 | Fujifilm INSTAX 210 Instant Photo Camera

instax-camera

My husband and I recently got an INSTAX camera and I LOVE IT. Nothing beats the feeling of holding a picture instantly. I recently took this camera on a photo shoot for a bride and had a blast. I can’t wait to share all the photos soon!

4 | Donut Stationery

donut-stationery

If you know me, you know I’m a sucker for a donut whether it on paper or in person. I got this adorable stationery set for my birthday and I think it’s the cutest! Check out more of the cute donut products from Paper Source HERE.

5 | Grey Bow Mirror

grey-bow-mirror

I had been eyeing this mirror for about a year and I finally got it! My husband and I decided to simplify our entryway since it’s not very big and I thought this mirror was perfect for the update! Nothing like a giant mirror to make a small space feel bigger. :)

1 | Somerset Pullover

somerset-pullover

I just love this sweater. It’s casual. It’s cute. It’s perfect. Well, if a sweater can be perfect? :)

2 | Bubble Glass Hurricane

bubble-glass-hurricane

I had been eyeing this candle holder for a while and decided to splurge on it. I’m so glad I did! The glow of the candle through the glass is just perfect! You can see how I’m using it in my house currently right HERE. :)

3 | H&M Sweatshirt

hmprod

This is one of the THE MOST comfortable sweaters I’ve had in a long time. Confession… I’m thinking of going back soon to get it in every color. It’s one of THOSE kind of perfects.

4 | Beauty Protector Protect & Detangle

beauty-protector

This is a birchbox find that I FINALLY got around to trying out. I say FINALLY in all caps because I wish I had used it sooner to know how amazing it is. When I used this product I knew it was working right away. I find that this is perfect to use when I want my hair to look silky and smooth. PLUS it smells amazing. Who doesn’t want “amazing” smelling hair? :)

5 | Tiffany & Co. Mug

27758436_867722_ED

My husband has an amazingly bad habit of spoiling me with something from Tiffany & Co. for Christmas every year. This year he decided to spoil me by endorsing one of my new bad habits. Drinking coffee. I am so excited to use my new mug to drink coffee in the mornings! Coffee has never been so elegant.

1 | Dalmatian Print

Dalmation Shirt2

I have been LOVING Dalmatian Print. I love it in the home, on my shoes, clothes, purses…the list could go on. I have a feeling Dalmatian is going to be the Leopard of 2014…at least in my book. ;)

2 | 31 Bits Holiday Collection

31BITS_GWG_WEB

I’ve had my eye on 31 Bits for a while. Not only am I a huge fan of their mission, but I LOVE their jewelry. I believe every woman should on a piece of Jewelry by 31 Bits. ESPECIALLY from their 2013 Holiday line. Check it out here!

3 | Sweater Stocking

sweater-stocking

Brandon and I made each other stockings when we first started dating and we have used them for the past 5 years. This year I decided we needed matching “grown up” stockings. I’m so happy with what I found at Anthropologie. They are so soft and when the light hits them just right you can see a hint of gold in the fabric.

4 | Be Merry & Bright by Too Faced

be-merry-be-bright

I bought this palette on a whim and I’m so glad I did! I love the vibrant colors and how easy they travel. Not only will they come in handy for the holiday parties to come but I’ve also had some fun with my normal “everyday” makeup. :)

5 | Dove’s Dry Shampoo

Dove-Dry-Shampoo

My best friend introduced me to this Dry Shampoo a few weeks ago and it’s my new favorite. It smells great and gives great volume to my hair. I feel like the bonus to this dry shampoo is the design.

Quick Tip from Ashley: Apply to roots and let it sit for a few minutes before rubbing it in with your fingertips.
