Ashley is a single mum, blogger, Twitter addict, public relations professional and beauty-product junkie. Shoes are her best friend.

Currently living in Halifax, NS, Ashley spends her days between two offices, playing trains and writing about the ins and outs of single motherhood, divorce, and being a twenty-something in this big old world. She's still deciding what she wants to be when she grows up, over many cups of coffee and the occasional (big) glass of wine.

Lara Beauty Anti-Aging Skincare Solutions #Review and #Giveaway ~ CAN/US 09/19

There’s a Crest commercial that says “If you’re not whitening, you’re yellowing”. This is basically the stance I have on my skin – if I’m not working against the UV damage and natural aging of my skin, I’m helping it along. For that reason, I’ve been using “anti-aging” and “wrinkle” creams for quite some time. […]

The Family Planning Flip-Flop

Princeton Mom’s latest letter has left me flip-flopping between full-on Hulk-smash-rage and anxiously rushing out to find Mr. He Just May Be The One so I can get a bun in the oven before my next birthday.  Just kidding, Mom! No babies up in this belly. But, seriously. If you haven’t read it already, you can […]

Why you need to be choose-y with your divorce lawyer

Sometimes I can hardly believe I’m getting a divorce, but I am. Or at least, I’ve taken some of the steps towards it. My husband and I have been separated for two years. Two years is a long time. I haven’t seen him in a year. He also hasn’t seen our son in a year. […]

Stealth Mission aka Christmas Shopping with the Fam Jam

Ahh, Christmas. It’s really the one time of the year when I feel like a superhero-ninja-Martha Stewart Hybrid. Actually it’s not, but I’d like it to be so I tend to do most of my Christmas shopping while humming my imaginary theme song. Imagine a mix between “The Christmas Song” and a way-cool superhero entrance […]

Baby, Meet my, um… baby

There’s a long list of things I don’t want to hear my toddler say in the middle of the night. They’re things like “Mommy, I think I had an accident!” and “Mommy, I threw up!” But they pale in comparison to this zinger: Mommy, what’s that guy’s name? Le sigh. Dating as a single parent […]

Softlips Watermelon Lip Moisturizer Review and Prize Pack Giveaway ~ CAN 10/31

I am a self-professed lipstick addict. At any given time, my purse has four or more lipsticks ranging from shocking pinks to demure nudes, deep plums to classic reds and everything in between. Although I always purchase moisturizing products, my lipsticks often dry out my lips. No lipstick looks pretty on chapped lips, regardless of […]

Breaking Up (with your daycare provider)

 We’ve all been there. Ending a relationship with someone who you genuinely like is a hard thing to do. Maybe it’s the super sweet guy where there’s just no spark, or the supervisor at the job that you’re ready to move on from, or – if you’re me at 5 pm on a Monday evening […]

Absence Explained: When Relationships Don’t Work Out

When my husband and I split up, I felt especially fortunate that my son was really too young to notice. It was especially easy because my husband worked away from home, and F wasn’t used to him being there full time. For a few months, I left our photos up. I guess I was hoping […]

Fresh Starts and Cold Coffee

I found out just how fast my car drives last weekend. My life has done a complete 180 in the last week, and I’m not sure if my head has stopped spinning. After finally making the decision to move with my boyfriend to Ottawa, we broke up. At the time it seemed really unexpected and […]

The Road from Wrong to Write

I feel like I had a mid-life crisis around the time I was 22. I’m sincerely hoping it wasn’t mid-life, because I’ve got a whole lot of living left to do but I’m pretty sure my crisis has petered off and the lessons I’ve learned have changed me to my core. I’m Ashley, a born-and-bred […]
