Pinterest Me Monday: Business Branding Inspiration

Hello everyone! I hope you all are liking my blog so far. I'm so happy; a new logo and blog design is in the process. I have someone working with me to create something really beautiful! I pray it goes well!

Since I'm in the process of a logo and blog design; I thought I would share my inspiration for the design. I put together a Pinterest board of pictures, that made me think of how I want the brand of my business to look and feel. Check out my collage of pictures below:

 *What do you all think; do you like it? What are the words that come to mind? Follow me here for more inspiring pins.

August Birchbox: Beauty School

I am sooo happy with this month's Birchbox! It included so many, many items that I can't wait to use! This month's, August, theme is "Beauty School". Since school is back in session, we birch girls get to learn Beauty 101.

Package Contents:
  • Juicy Couture: Viva la Juicy La Fleur: Oh my goodness; this perfume is just smells AMAZING! It's not an overpowering scent; it's soft. I think it has become one of my favorites! It's "inspired by the blushing aura of being in love." That sums it up perfectly!
  • Miss Jessie's Original: Curly Meringue: This product is for keeping curls frizz free, bouncy and smooth. My hair is thick and naturally wavy, so I'm interested to see what this will do for me.
  • Miss Jessie's Original: Creme de la Creme Conditioner: This is a conditioner for all types of hair. I must add: the Miss Jessie's products have an "old school" package design... I like!
  • Sabon: Foot Creme: This product is based on natural products. I hope I can get a foot massage with this stuff; it would feel wonderful!
  • TALIKA: lipocils expert: This is different: It's a plant derived lash serum that helps with growth. I may do a little experiment to see if this really works; although I already have long lashes.
  • Schick Hydro Silk Razor: I was so happy the minute I found this product in my box! I used it already and it's AMAZING! It curves with your body, includes built in moisturizers, and leaves a clean, close, and soft shave. 
*What were your favorite products from your August Birchbox?

Welcome to A Classy Occasion!

Hello my new and old friends, I'm Ashlie, welcome to my new home on the web: A Classy Occasion! If you know me from Just Another Daydream, you're probably wondering why I left and came here. Well, since I have become "serious" about starting my own event planning business, I thought my blog should reflect that. Blogs are so personable and I believe a business should reflect the person behind it, so that is why I built my home here.

As you probably already figured, the name of my business is: A Classy Occasion. I'll be writing about my business venture; from the beginning stages and onward. If you've been to Just Another Daydream, you'll still find a lot of the same things around here, but MORE; more about my life, style, faith, things I do, people I love, and my event business. It's all kind of like a bigger and better version of my old home (blog).

My hope when you visit my blog is that you feel inspired, encouraged, learn something of value, we become great friends, and realize that ALL things are possible when God is on your side! Please enjoy your time spent here and visit often! GREAT things are coming!
