As Lived by Ginger

Hello everyone!

I am totally new to all of this, I am currently a student at CSULA and just wanting to start a personal blog. I am currently an intern for a TV personality who will be starting her own blog soon, so I am also using this as a practice blog to start a much bigger one for her.  My passions are cooking, art, photography, fashion, and travel.  I am also interested in improving my writing skills so I am hoping this will help.  I will be working on this in my spare time when i'm not at school or making lattes at work.  Hoping my project will succeed as much as everyone else's that I have seen so far! I am totally open to all feedback so please let me know what you think!

  • document experiences
  • become a better writer
  • help me see my world in a different light
  • express my views 
  • showcase my art

This is Ashley, a 22 year old girl who is a student at Cal State Los Angeles.  She is going to school to be a graphic designer and she loves art.  She is also a very good painter and loves to use her cat Fluffy as her muse.  She lives with her best friend Abby and they love to go out at night to local restaurants for dinner and drinks.  If they don't go out, they cook fantastic meals for their friends, and of course there is always wine.  

Ashley is always on the hunt for a good deal when it comes to shopping, food, and pretty much anything.  As a college student with a part time job, money is tight so finding good recipes or DIY's online is great for her to save a few bucks.  But Ashley is not only about fashion, art, and good eats- she could always use a good article to stimulate her mind and educate her on issues she may have not known about.  She is always looking to learn more about the world around her, and view other people's opinions.
