Ashlee is Mama of one darling boy. A 28 week early bird, now 1 and some change, doing beautifully. She lives near Chicago with her sweetheart husband and French Bulldog. She's a thinker not afraid to get her silly on. Babywearer, veggie queen, photography nut. Before the domestic days Ashlee was pursuing a future in developmental psychology but has happily shifted gears in favor of staying at home and couldn't imagine doing anything else. In her free time (ha!) you can find her whipping up babyslings, holding down the fort at Mama Speaks and spotlighting as an Itsy Bitsy Yoga Instructor.

Get Real...

Alright, I'm cheating and re-posting this photo... Me in all my glory! Steph is having a contest/photo tag, daring us all to reveal ourselves sans make-up. I'll have to admit, this isn't such a tough one for me... I hardly ever wear make-up. Not that I don't need to, I guess it's just the left-over tom boy in me. I don't like to take the time (lazy), and will admit that, well, I just don't get it (missed that lesson!). Head on over and show us how beautiful you are underneath it all.

    Wow are you serious? I wouldn't wear makeup either if I looked like that. Honestly I hardly ever wear it too b/c of the laziness/time factor but I don't feel comfortable. I think if I didn't look so tired it wouldn't bother me as much. I don't necessarily wear makeup to look "naturally pretty" but more for a funkiness factor - red eyeshadow, green eyeliner and fortunately no longer the black lip liner ;) With that said, mascara does make me feel 100 times better!

    You look beautiful!!! top
