Five Fun Facts About Me!

Five Fun Facts About Me!

Happy Friday friends! I thought I'd change it up a bit today and participate in the popular #fridayintroductions hashtag on social media. I decided to put it up on the blog instead of Instagram that way more people can see it when they visit the shop! 

So let's get started!

Fun Fact #1: I live an (almost fully) paleo lifestyle.
First off, if you haven’t heard of paleo it is basically a lifestyle where you do not eat grains, dairy, legumes, processed sugar, and soy. I always say I’m like 95% Paleo because I do indulge in the occasional cocktail/wine and some hummus! Plus there is only so much you can control at restaurants if you like to eat out.

I have been paleo for over two years now! I decided to eat paleo after my first round of Whole30 when I realized I had an intolerance to gluten and dairy. I actually really enjoy being paleo and it's crazy to see how much my taste buds have changed since cutting out all the processed food. 

Fun Fact #2: I love scary movies
Suspense, Thriller, Horror... all the genres that relate to that I love them. If I am not catching up on TV shows reading a book then I'm looking for a new scary movie to watch (or show... anyone else obsessed with American Horror Story?)


Fun Fact #3: Animal Lover
I have always loved animals and always will. Growing up I had a cat most of my life (even though I am actually allergic to them) and now my husband and I have three dogs and an outdoor cat (he would go crazy living inside). A couple years ago, a friend of mine and I had even started our own 5k charity walk (with your dogs) called Tails & Trails that we had locally to support our local animal shelter. We organized it for a couple years and loved every bit of it!

Our Pets: Cooper, Ranger, Bowie & Slider

Fun Fact #4: Bookworm
I love to read! I always have a book on me (typically downloaded to my phone nowadays) so that I can read in my spare time. Just like my love for scary movies I love a good thriller book. I try and list all the books I have read or am currently reading on my Goodreads account. You can check it out or leave a comment below to recommend any good books you have read lately.

Fun Fact #5: Eclectic Taste in Music
I listen to music probably 90% of the day. I love all genres of music and when I say all I mean ALL. I've got everything from songs from the 50s all the way to Cardi B. I'm not even going to link my Spotify playlists because they are so random! I commute to my full-time job every day so I get plenty of listening time in plus I will have it on as background noise while I work. 


Do we have anything in common? What are some fun facts about you? 

Valentine’s Day Themed Party Invitations

Valentine’s Day Themed Party Invitations

Happy Friday!

One of my goals for 2018 is to get better at blogging and sharing more about my personal life as well as more behind the scenes. I actually really enjoy writing and creating graphics to build a blog post, my biggest issue last year was time management for it but this year I am getting a jump start and working hard to make these posts a routine every week!

If you have visited the shop page recently then you have seen a lot of pink & red…that’s because Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and I have some adorable themed invites for your February babies birthdays!

Hearts & Love Party Invitation by Ashlynn Elliff

Side Note: I get asked this question a lot on Etsy, the wording & colors on any of my invitation designs is customizable! All my invitation designs are edited by me. Once I get the order and the party details I edit the invitation custom to your party needs! So if you like a design but need some colors swapped, or phrases changed… no problem at all just be specific when filling out the details!
