I'm Ashley Elizabeth Barrett, but others know me as Ash, Shorty (by Mom), PP (reason to be concealed), Firefly, Ashy... you name it. I love nick names and refuse to call the people I love by their birth name, so I apologize in advance, shnookems! ;)
Outside the doors to my apartment in Florence
I've dreamed of visiting Italy since I was 16 so this summer I shipped myself out to beautiful Florence, Italy for 2.5 months to complete my undergraduate degree. By far the best life decision I ever made! I couldn't get enough of everything that the country and culture had to offer. I'm currently taking an Italian language course at the community college near my house in hopes of going back within the next two years to teach English and bum around with the Italians. :)
I'm an avid Yogini favoring Bikrams strict style of 26 perfected postures. Try hot yoga- your life will be forever changed (maybe for the worst the first class but it gets better- Promise!). As well as going to Italy, I was lucky enough to have the chance to go to Bali, Indonesia. I was there for a two week yoga retreat and learned more things about yoga than I thought was out in the world. Im starting to extend my yoga practice from being a Bikram snob to flowing through the power vinyasa style and learning all that a chaturanga has to offer.
Lover of gelato, live music, and meeting new people. Word on the street is I have an eye for style so blogging a little more on fashion will be one of my intentions. I believe that true style isn't about where you shop but how you wear something. I'm looking to travel the world, explore and gain new perspective... All while being creative, imaginative and a little crafty- Oh and of course having a lot of fun! Cheers!
