;; Ashley Chloe. ; ;;

I'm Ashley, a 23 year old full time designer, lifestyle blogger, and part time stylist from the sunny city of Miami who has a constant crave for traveling, photography, new things, and art. I've been blogging since I was a late teen in high school about my every day life, what I buy, thoughts, and things I'm currently wanting or lusting for- you can say I've grown up a lot throughout my past few years while blogging about my life. This is my personal blog where you will find my day to day activities from new buys, days out, my travels around the world, new finds, and a bunch of tid bits in between that make up the nutshell I call my life. All the photos you will see on my blog are all captured on my simple Cybershot, nothing special but it works when I want to share what I see through my eyes to you. Please do keep a mental note on any of my social media sites that I do have a full time job as a fashion designer so blogging or updating regulary isn't something that I can do at all times of the day but I do try to make due.







    

Arriving In Rome

As many of you know, my birthday was on September 9th, the day before I left to Italy, and my fiancé wanted to surprise me with some trips around Europe as a birthday surprise since he couldn’t be in Miami for my celebrations. I’ve never been to Rome, so being told this will be one of my stops to explore and visit had me thrilled off the walls. I can honestly say that Rome could possibly be one of my favorite places at the moment, and even though I’m not the biggest fan of the old world, this place took my breath away. Every corner I turned had some sort of old world architecture to it, I don’t think I ever once had my camera in my purse. We arrived rather late to Rome the first night, and actually didn’t end up having dinner till around 1am or later. Rome is completely different from Sardo life in the sense that everything stays open very late just like in Miami, which is great for late night munchies. Our official first plate in Rome was at this little corner restaurant called Baccano where I had Caico & Pepe Pasta with red wine which was to die for. You really have no idea just how delicious italian plates are until you really dine in an authentic one in the  city. I very much misjudged the weather in Rome and took nothing but long sleeves, little did I know that it would be extremely hot and humid limiting me to literally only two items to wear comfortably haha !

Arriving Back In Italy

I arrived in Milan on September 11th, and made a trip across the city to another airport to catch my flight to the island 6 hours later. Needless to say after a 10 hour flight with no sleep, turbulence, and freezing air conditioner, I was more than happy to finally hit land during the afternoon. I spent the next few days battling jet lag and getting used to the new town my fiance moved to. He finally got me to leave the bed when we agreed to do a spontaneous road trip along the coast of the island to see the beaches and take photos. One thing I definitely missed was the scenery and beautiful waters. Living in Miami, we don’t exactly have the most drastic of lands, nothing but flat land and crowded beaches, so to come back to this is definitely a breath of fresh air.
