I'm Ashley, and I'm the owner/writer of Peek & Ponder. I created the site to share my passion for beauty and connect with people who had similar interests. I started posting, thinking no one would ever find my little blog, but wanted to prove to myself that I could stick with it. Before I knew it, the site grew tremendously and people were telling me how much they loved my blog. I couldn't believe the feedback I was getting and I knew this was something I had to continue with. I've been lucky enough to work with some amazing brands and connect with some incredible people. As time goes on, I get even more excited for my blog! I've got big plans and I hope you stick around to see them flourish.
I'm a twenty-something Northern California girl. I live with my boyfriend, Mark, and our pet bunny, Peaches. I love to draw and paint - even my iPad is filled with drawing apps!
People know me for my art and my dangly earring collection (totally not kidding!). I enjoy shopping, but I try to keep it at a minimum because otherwise I'd be broke from filling my shelves with beauty products. I've learned to blog on a budget, which is not as easy as one would think (coupons, clearance, and sales really help me out).
Since I started my blog (March 2011), I've been working on my photography skills and I've grown to really love it. Photography has become a major hobby of mine. I use a Canon 70D for my photos.
Last year, I decided to take my blogging a little further and start a YouTube channel to accompany my blog. I'm really starting to get into it with beauty videos and even lifestyle vlogs. Check it out and subscribe if you'd like!
