So I know your probably all thinking Ashlee where have you been? Did you fall of the face of the earth? Did you loose internet connection? Well I can confirm for you all that none of that happened, instead I got so caught up in life, that I decided that I would take a break from the internet, from tweeting or blogging when something happened, and instead focusing on my uni work, earning money and enjoying every moment I have with my friends and family. 

But I'm pleased to let you know that Im back and that I am aiming to post a new blog at least once a month, depending on my uni and work timetable and just how creative my blog ideas are.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and New Year, and that 2015 is treating them as amazing as it is treating me. 
Heres to an amazing year!

Till next time,

Beauty loves...

Yes its been a while since I have posted, and I'm extremely sorry! Uni work and exams just got very overwhelming, but Im back, and here I am with another post. This time a post on the beauty products I have been loving recently.

To kick start this post, I have been loving the Maybelline Fit Me range, its a drug store brand makeup that I finally found the one I love using. In particular to this range I have been loving the Foundation and Concealer. 

Maybelline Fit Me Foundation

Maybelline Fit Me Concealer

I have found that both this products provide me with an excellent coverage hiding all blemish, spots, and anything else that wants to be hidden. A little goes a long way, which is even better. I have also found that they both extremely easy to apply to the skin, providing a wonderful flawless look, that doesn't appear oily or cake like in any way.

This month, and probably all year I have been loving a red lip, and not only at night time. I believe a red lip is the perfect way to make any statement, and make those lips pop.

I have also been loving a gorgeous bright pink colour this year too, and especially love wearing it in winter, just to make sure I still have some brightness in my outfit. Im especially in love with the Maybelline Colour Sensation range, which includes a range of beautiful colours at a excellent price. All these lipsticks apply with such ease, and one coat is all you need to make your lips pop.

I recently purchased my first Real Techniques brush. I bought the expert face brush to start my collection off with. Since using it, I have become extremely in love with it and wouldn't go back to any other brushes. I find this brush gives me a great coverage for my foundation, blending the foundation into my skin with such ease and perfection. The brush is extremely soft and makes the experience even more enjoyable. I would highly recommend these brushes to anyone and can not wait to expand my collection

Real Techniques Expert brush

Since leaving school I have been loving wearing nail polish all the time, and it has even come to the stage where I can't even stand looking at my fingers without any nail polish. I tend to stick with all the pinks, bright or light. However recently I decide to experiment a little and try wearing white and I love it. I think it looks so fresh and clean. However the only thing I dislike about it is I personally found that the nail polish became dirty extremely quickly (within 5 days of wearing it and required me to reapply)

So there are just a few of the beauty products I have been loving recently. Please leave any comments, questions or thoughts of styles of post you would like to see, and also let me know if you liked this style of post. Till next time...

2014 and My Adventures so far...

Firstly I want to start this blog by saying welcome to 2014 (although almost a month through). I hope everyone had a great break and has welcomed 2014 with open arms. I also want to say a massive sorry, for not blogging for what seems to be ages, I got carried away with the new year, and work, and trying to fit everything in before I went on a holiday, which brings me to my blog today.

Recently I took a 10 night trip to Bali, with my family and another family. This was a massive deal for me as it was my first time overseas... eek. That's right it took me 17 years until I finally flew out of Australia and over the seas. I thought in this bog I would show you some of my favourite purchase I made, and some of my memories. I hope you all enjoy :)

Starting off with our accommodation.....
We stayed at a beautiful place called Amadea Resort's and Villa's in Seminyak. I would highly recommend this place to anyone wanting to stay in Seminyak. The staff were extremely friendly, and the resort made you feel like you were in paradise, forgetting the busy streets you had come from.

I didn't shop as much as I expected I would, but I still managed to pick up some beautiful pieces, both from the markets and boutique stores. 
Starting off with this beautiful skort from a little boutique store which was a few blocks down from our resort.

I absolutely adore the colours in this skort, and couldn't resist buying it, I had walked past it about 5 times and I knew I had to buy it. It was roughly around $45.00. I wasn't going to complain about it, considering it is good quality and the material is beautiful. However when I got home I found it online at for $30.00 but I'm still glad I bought it!!

My next purchase I bought at shopping centre, which was having a massive sale at the time ***yay*** This hot pink clutch. At first I wasn't sure about this, I tend to use handbags rather then clutches, but after realising I'm coming to the age now when I'm going to be going out a lot more, I knew it had to be mine.  Its roughly the size of an A4 piece of paper, which is perfect for me, because I always attend to pack more then what I need, and also comes with a long gold chain. This was previously $60.00 and I managed to get it for $20.00

Quick note, this picture doesn't give this dress any justice!!! This is the perfect dress to wear over bathers, or just chill around the house in. It is super comfy, and light weight so great on warm days, and it has a low back. Believe it or not i scored this dress at a little store only for $5.00. I must admit i was pretty proud of this purchase and wish I had bought a few more in this style.

Here are a few more snap shots from my trip....

Again I apologise for this being so late, but I do hope you enjoyed this. Please feel free to leave any comments below, and any suggestions on some blog post you would like to see. I would love to hear from you all

Love Ash

The Christmas Cracker Tag

I want to start this blog by saying, I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas day!! 
Being the busy person I am (work), I haven't been reading blogs lately, however last night I found the time to do so, and I noticed that I had been tagged to do the Christmas Cracker Tag, by the beautiful Emily Lockwood (aka please all go check out her blog and you tube channel! Even though Christmas has already been, I thought I would do the tag before the Christmas season is over and change the questions slightly so they still work. Lets begin....

1. What's on your Christmas list?
This year I didn't really have a wish list, my birthday is so close to Christmas (December 8th) so usually I join them into one. However this year, I'm going to Bali soon, so I pretty much asked for money, boring I know, but I need it.

2. What is on your Christmas day agenda?
My Christmas day usually involves my family waking up and opening presents in the morning. We then head off to my mum's sisters house, where we catch up with all my family from my mum's side for a massive breakfast, with everything you could imagine. We then go to the beach or swim in the pool before having a late, light lunch. After we head to someones house on my dad's side of the family (it changes each year) for an early dinner.

3. How much Christmas shopping have you done?
I must admit I was pretty slow with my Christmas shopping this year, however I did know what I was going to get everyone. I had all my Christmas shopping done about a week before Christmas.

4. What's been your biggest ever surprise gift?
I don't have one really, each year there is that one present that is a massive surprise, so i can't really chose.

5. When do you usually put up your Christmas tree?
We usually put our Christmas tree up on the 1st of December.

6. Do you have a special outfit planned for Christmas Day?
I usually wait until Christmas morning to determine what I wear in case I get something for Christmas. However this year, I had already planned what I was wearing, as I had received a beautiful dress from my sister for my birthday. 

7. Do you have any plans for Boxing Day?
Boxing Day for my family, is a relaxing day, Dad watches the cricket, my sister and I put all our presents away, we swim in our pool, and eat leftovers. It may sound boring, but it is the best!

8. When did you stop believing in Father Christmas?
I actually don't remember what age I was. There was always talk at Primary school, and because of that I started to believe that. It wasn't until I saw my Christmas stocking hiding in my parents bedroom, that I truly believed it.

9. What's your favourite Christmas scent? (Candle/Perfume?
Well I can't go passed the smell of gingerbread cooking in the oven. But as for Candle/ Perfume, this year I am really loving the Golden Wonder Bath Ballistic from Lush, it has a beautiful sweet smell, and it being in the shape of a present makes it super cute.

10. What do you love most about Christmas?
There is not one thing I can pin point that I love most about Christmas, I just love it all.  I love the massive lead up to Christmas, the carols, the decorations, the lights, the buying of presents, receiving presents, Christmas day, the food... absolutely EVERYTHING!!

Sorry its after Christmas, but thanks for reading. If you have any suggestions please leave them below. Also I'm now on Bloglovin so feel free to check me out!

Lush Haul

Ok so i recently made my long awaited visit to 'Lush', for those who don't know Lush is fresh handmade cosmetic store selling things from bath to hair to perfume. I have been in love with this store ever since I watched Zoe Sugg's (aka. Zoella's) haul video and have been wanting to buy stuff off it since. So when i found out that Perth has not only one but now three stores, i knew i must attend. Thankfully i didn't go by myself otherwise i would of bought the entire store and then we would have a massive issue.

I thought i would show you all i bought and go through them.

Twlight Bath Ballistic

Besides that this bath bomb looks absolutely beautiful, it smells amazing. This bath bomb is amazing at recreating a beautiful sunset in your bath. I simply had to buy this bath bomb based on its colour (pinks my favourite) and the starts and moons that have been imprinted into it. 
I noticed when i got home that inside this bath bomb its blue inside, so i will be interested into to see what colour it makes the water, I'm guessing it will change it into the colours of a sunset, but will have to wait and see.

Sex Bomb Bath Bomb

Ok lets just get this clear, i bought two of these bath bombs as present for my friends, purely because of what they look and smell like, not the names.
Unlike some of the other bath bombs at Lush this bath bomb doesn't have many surprise, it produces a gorgeous pinky purple colour in the water and smells like rose and jasmine. 
I will be interested in how my friends like these.

Blooming beautiful gift

I couldn't resist this cute little gift pack for my younger sister, we agreed on not spending much on each other this year, so i decided to get her this. Their citrus smells are perfect for this summer time in Perth. This pack contains

Think Pink Bath Ballistic

How cute is this bath bomb, it is a vibrant hot pink colour (this picture doesn't give it justice) and has a gorgeous tonka bean aroma mixed with the sweetness of vanilla. The great thing about this, is that the aroma isn't that overbearingly.

Pop in the Bath Bubble Bar

Now this is adorable, this bubble bar that Lush has produced along with all its others are amazing, place a small bit in the bath and you instantly have bubbles. This Bath bubble bar was inspired by Mary Poppin's to sort out a chaotic household. This bath bubble bar is great to relax and calm you after a stressful day. 

Rub Rub Rub Shower scrub

So don't let the look of this put you off, this stuff is amazing, and one of my best purchases in a while. As the name states its a shower scrub. It has a sugary texture too it, which is great for exfoliating you skin if using a large amount, or perfect as an every day body wash. The best thing about this, is it makes your skin feel extremely soft afterwards, its incredible. Another bonus, is that unlike other soap it doesn't block your drain, which is great.

I hope you all enjoy this blog and please let me know you experiences at lush, and if you enjoyed this haul, have any advice or any suggestions for next blog.

Hello Blog World, and welcome to my blog.

Ive been enjoying reading blogs for ages, and am constantly being inspired to start my own, so i thought that this may as well be the perfect time to start my blog.  I have just graduated from high school and am enjoining a four month break before hopefully starting University next year, thats if everything goes to plans, and since i have this time i thought why not start now. I am Ashlee Bowler, I'm 17, and i live in Australia. After spending the past 14 years at school, it is now my turn to enter into the real world, experience life free from the boundaries and restrictions of school rules and teachers.

One of the most important things that i have gained from school is that time sure does fly, and that i wish i had taken more videos, photos and recorded more things that i had done whilst growing up.
As you will soon find out i have a strong passion and love for fashion, shopping, food and travelling, and therefore I have decided to include a whole range of things in my blog from fashion and beauty to lifestyle advice and simply anything that happens to pop in my head and i have the urge to share. I hope you enjoy my blog and the journey which we will take together and i hope it too inspires you to enjoy every moment in life and reach for your dreams.

I hope you enjoy it xx
