Coffee Talk

It's Monday and ALL the coffee is needed, especially if you're coming off a crazy bachelorette weekend like myself. #thestruggleisSOreal

Have you ever thought about the power of coffee? It's so much more than just an AM boost of energy. It's part of a routine that can dictate the trajectory of one's entire day. Coffee actually plays a part in the start of many relationships, business tractions, and heart-felt conversations. It's kind of nuts when you think about.  I'll be the first to say that when I'm working from home every morning I brew a cup of my fave Starbucks roast or head to the corner where they just put in a new Starbucks (that was one of the best days of my life, btw!).  My day does not start without coffee!

And speaking of coffee + relationships... I have a new friend: Marie Claire. We sat down a few weeks ago, over coffee (duh!), and chatted about a day in my life, style tips, and how I ended up doing what I love. It was truly one of those pinch me experiences and I'm so so excited to share: read it here and check out a little snapshot below.

I love ya coffee, but shoes always win! On another note, thank YOU for constant support via blog, social media, e-mails, happy thoughts... whatever it is. This digital world can be scary, heck! being a grown-up is scary, and every "like", comment, and virtual high-five is much much appreciated. I think it's safe to say we're all just trying to navigate this thing called life, one shoe at a time.

Ohh I also keep meaning to share that I've shot an exclusive Quarterly Editions shoe print! Just a little something fun to spice up your vanity or closet. Let me know if you pick one up and if there's anything else you'd like to see.

PS: So much bachelorette goodness is coming in the next couple days! Stay tuned if you or anyone you know is planning a bachelorette. Things are getting crafty!!


  1. Where are those snakeskin shoes from?? Love! Also, what are your "fashion" tennis shoes?


    1. Hi Maggie - all the shoes are from Cole Haan. This is a snippet from my article on Marie Claire: http://www.marieclaire.com/fashion/advice/a15752/ashley-torres-of-pursuit-of-shoes/

      Thanks! - Ashley


Thank you for your lovely comments... Keep pursuing shoes!
