Happy Sundae Funday!

Sweet Treat Sunday?

Sunday A La Mode?

Clearly I had way too many opening lines for this blog post! (That’s a first!)

Whatever the title may be, I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!

(Sorry I had to sneak that last one in ๐Ÿ˜‰

Happy National Ice Cream Day! It’s the All-American treat that never goes out of style!

I am a HUGE and I mean HUGE ice cream fan!! However most of you who are following me on SnapChat (if you haven’t already followed me on snapchat you totally should! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Modestly.Hot) ย know that I have been on a weight loss journey (coming soon to the blog) of losing 10 pounds! (Currently down 12! woohoo! )

As a result I have been reducing my calorie and sugar intake which meant ice

cream was totally off limits!

{INSERT Sad Emoji Face here}
Until the ice cream angels of Halo Top creamery enlightened me with information that I could have the entire pint of ice cream for only 240 calories a pint!

QUICK! Someone pinch me and grab me a spoon!

Even better a 1/2 cup of ice cream is just 60 calories with just 4g of sugar!

At last, Healthy Ice Cream!!

This collaboration was a match made in heaven, not only because they came at the ice cream deprived stage of my life, but I couldn’t agree more with the branding of the gold foil top! (If you have not noticed we love our gold around here).

img_4724img_4722img_4723img_4726

The flavors I chose were Mint Chocolate Chip, Vanilla Bean, Chocolate, and Lemon Cake.

What I immediately noticed as I opened the pint was that it stayed frozen for a longer time, which is explained on the back of the pint.

Halo Top does not use artificial softeners, no corn syrup, no synthetic growth hormones which explains why it freezes a little harder than the other guys!

But hey it is totally worth the wait!

img_4721

Here are quick mini reviews of each of the 4 flavors I chose:

Vanilla Bean:

PROS: Probably one of the most “natural” tasting ice creams of them all!

You can definitely taste the organic vanilla beans and the sea salt! None of that artificial “fake” tasting vanilla!

CONS:ย If you prefer ice cream full of “in your face” flavor, this pint may have your palette desiring for more.

However, I actually enjoy the softness in flavor without being overly sweet.

Chocolate:

PROS:ย This pint truly delivers on the authentic taste of cocoa beans! Strong but delightful!

Rich but not overindulgent where I wished I would have skipped dessert all together.

CONS:ย It tastes darker than milk chocolate, but not as potent as dark chocolate. Strictly ย milk chocolate fans might opt for another flavor.

Lemon Cake:ย 

PROS:ย Rich, creamy and you DEFINITELY won’t miss the cake at all!! It tastes exactly like a lemon cake! No joke! I know which pint I am reaching for when a cake craving at midnight strikes! SOOO GOOD!

CONS:ย It is the most rich out of all four flavors, you have been warned ๐Ÿ˜‰

Mint Chocolate Chip:ย 

PROS:ย Hands down my favorite one!! You wont miss out on any of the major competitors version of mint chocolate chip because this one is right up there with them! Plus its high packed with protein and low sugar!

CONS: There are no cons to this one. Period. ๐Ÿ˜€

๐Ÿ’•Mint, Pink &Polkadots! +GIVEAWAY from Let’s Be Modest Shop!๐Ÿ’•

Hello lovelies!!๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’• 

Happy  Saturday to you! 

I’m so excited to share today’s outfit post and there’s also going to be a giveaway so stay tuned til the end! 

    

I was feeling a abut colorful today and went for my favorite color combo; pink and mint!๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’• 

  It’s been such a gorgeous past few days here in Lancaster๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป๐ŸŒป The weather is cooling down, but it still feels like summer! I’m pretty used to cold weather back home in Utah  so when people say it’s “cold”here and it’s only 70 degrees I can’t help but be grateful that’s their coldest temp around here ! โ›„๏ธโ„๏ธ    
I will say this though the winds are fierce!๐Ÿ’จ When I first came here I thought it was going to be difficult to be modest because of the heat, but actually the Lancaster winds make modesty 100x difficult ESPECIALLY if you like to wear full A-line  skirts!๐Ÿ™†๐Ÿป  But I do enjoy a challenge I must say! #bringitlancasterwinds ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’จ 

  
I did a little subtle pattern mixing today because it’s Saturday and it just feels right! LOL 

I adore a gorgeous quatrefoil print!! I finally found what my scarfs print was called!! Haha! One day at JoAnn’s I was trying to explain to the fabric lady that this fabric was really popular and had a funky four square design! (Pretty clear huh?) She looked at me with that blank stare people give you when they think you’ve completely lost your mind! 

After that interesting fabric hunt fail I was more determined than ever to find the name of that design so I did a little Google image search with the fabric and bam! Here is the proper  definition: 

Quatrefoil:

an ornamental design of four lobes or leaves as used in architectural tracery, resembling a flower or four-leaf clover. 

Well you learn something new everyday! 

Let’s talk about this scarf for a second!!๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’™ Not only is it a gorgeous quatrefoil print with a stunning mint color, BUT it has a secret compartment zipper where you can stash your cash, card or lipgloss!๐Ÿ˜ฑ 

   
 Mind. blown.๐Ÿ’ฃ๐Ÿ’ฃ๐Ÿ’ฃ 

This scarf is perfect for a day like this because when you’re out soulwinning (door knocking inviting people to church!) you need to have your hands free! I will definitely be storing my scan card,iPhone and some cash! ๐Ÿ“ฑ๐Ÿ’ณ๐Ÿ’ฐ 

GENUIS! 

This cute scarf will be part of today’s giveaway thanks to Let’s Be Modest Shop!!  

You’ve been patient and have made it near the end of the blog post! I think that deserves a giveaway๐Ÿ˜‰

๐Ÿ‚๐ŸŒปModest Teal & Leopard Skirt Outfit featuring Jupe De Abby!๐ŸŒป๐Ÿ‚

Hello Friends!! 

Boy we’re already coming to the weekend!๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป Seems like yesterday it was just Sunday at church and now it’s time to do it all over once again!! 

So I as coming from my classes I went ahead and checked my mail and you won’t believe what arrived!!๐Ÿ˜ฑ 

  
Just in time for fall!!๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ๐Ÿƒ

This stunning aline leopard ball gown midi skirt! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’›

Immediately when I saw it I knew it was going to be on repeat for several  outfit posts! 

 
I couldn’t help but wear it the same week I got it! (No shame in that lol) 

Now I realize I could go so many different routes with this skirt but I decided on wearing a teal blouse with gold accent buttons on the shoulders from Ross! 

*side note* I 100% recommend you purchasing a few of these dressy colored blouses! Check your Ross every week when they rotate inventory (ask your store manager what day of the week that is) to find these hidden gems! You can find them as low as $4-5 each! 

Such great staples in my wardrobe!

   
  

Now back to the skirt! You girls are in luck the skirts at Jupe de Abby are for the most part under $30 and they’re having a fall sale on their site!! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป just use the code: Sept15 for even MORE savings! โค๏ธ

  
  
“Leopard is a Neutral” 

I love the color combo of mint/teal and leopard! I wore my white flower statement necklace from Walmart (who knew Walmart could have such cute necklaces!) and my Justfab Cognac Wedges!  
   
   
You’ll probably be seeing this skirt on replay in the coming weeks because it is so versatile and goes with everything!

Well that wraps up today’s post!

Have a great weekend and I’ll chat with you next time!

God Bless,

Ashleyโค๏ธ

  

Disney Princess Cinderella + Mint Tulle Skirt Outfit! Featuring Space 46 Boutique!

Happy Monday Friends!!

Disney Fashion Week is in full force and we are starting off the week with another Cinderella Inspired Outfit!

IMG_3235

IMG_3326-1

IMG_3703

IMG_3698

You may have recalled two of my past Cinderella Inspired outfits, but I couldn’t help myself for one more go at this stylish Princess!

IMG_4491

So for this week I wanted to channel my inner Cinderella in a more subtle way!

IMG_4478

You guys!! I finally found my holy grail tee shirt!!

Disney and Vogue ?!! Together?!! Ugh this is perfection beyond belief!

Two of my favorite obsessions wrapped up into one glorious top!

I scored this awesome shirt late one night browsing through Poshmark for just $10!

IMG_4480

I decided to pair up my Vogue Cinderella Shirt with my mint tulle skirt from Space 46 Boutique!

I have seen this dreamy tulle skirt all over Pinterest and I just HAD to get my hands on one!

I finally pulled the trigger and bought my first Space 46 tulle skirt! They are totally worth every penny!

My favorite part of this skirt is the satin waistband, and the volume of the skirt! Not too poofy and not too flat but just right!

I think Goldilocks would approve ๐Ÿ˜‰

IMG_4488

IMG_4475

For accessories and shoes I wore my single strand rhinestone necklace with my DIY Cinderella Shoes!

I decided on a single strand necklace so it would add some shine to the outfit but wouldn’t distract from the wording of the actual shirt. And for $1 you just can’t beat that! I actually bought a back up of the necklace!

For shoes I couldn’t decide on which pair, so I wore both! lol

The first pair I purchased it from a shoe clearance sale at the mall for just $5.99! They’re double strapped and have the coolest holographic print all over them!

IMG_4484

IMG_4472

IMG_4469

The second pair of heels were my Silver Glitter Heels I made from an old pair of pumps I had laying around!

Here’e the link to my DIY Cinderella Shoe tutorial! So Easy and a great inexpensive way to spruce up your old heels!

IMG_4493

IMG_4486

For hair and makeup: I went for my go to Retro 60’s Inspired Half Up- Half Down Do!

It’s really quite simple and some of you on Instagram have requested a hair tutorial, which I am currently working on!

My go to makeup is quite neutral, which includes just layering shadows of light brown, medium brown and dark chocolate brown to enhance the crease! Big lashes, and bold winged eyeliner have become part of my usual makeup routine.

My go to palette is definitely the LORAC PRO/LORAC UNZIPPED! The shadows are pillow soft and blend out gorgeously!

I used to be a total Urban Decay junkie now I am a LORAC girl all the way!

Hopefully the Monday blues aren’t taking a toll on you too hard:/!
For today’s outfit I’m so excited and I’m going to warn you, you may want to adjust your screens brightness because I got a little too color happy! Lol
IMG_3484.JPG
I literally got this skirt in the mail a couple of hours ago and I’m already strolling the town with it!
Lol I mean mint and polka dots? You can’t be frowning when wearing this skirt!!
I just had to get my hands on one especially since they’re on a weekly deal right now for just $17 at Adorn It Boutique! ๐Ÿ˜

IMG_3464.JPG

IMG_3465.JPG
So since it was raining in the morning a bit I decided on wearing a yellow polkadot cardigan along with my mint skirt! Now however its much too hot for that so I just took the cardigan off and it still looks darling with just the yellow blouse!!
I love mint and yellow together! Instant Monday Pick Me Up!

IMG_3467.JPG

IMG_3469.JPG

IMG_3466.JPG

IMG_3468.JPG
I was feeling a little daring and decided on wearing my neon yellow studded pumps with the skirt! Lol I definitely will be clearly visible at night that’s for sure!

IMG_3471.JPG

IMG_3470.JPG
Now for my next outfit I decided on wearing hot pink! Clearly I can’t just be satisfied with a normal color scheme๐Ÿ™ˆ It was too sunny not to be crazed with color!!๐Ÿ˜โค๏ธ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’›

Before I could do the look I needed Jasmine’s Signature Headband!

IMG_3047.JPG

IMG_3041-0.JPG

Now you can’t do Princess Jasmine without the genie lamp of course!!
I bought mine online at Walmart’s website for just $5!

For my hair I teased it like they did back in the 80’s lol!
I mean the amount of strength I built up in my arms from teasing my hair for this look was insane! Lol

One can of hairspray and 40 Bobby pins later…

IMG_3276.JPG

IMG_3271.JPG

IMG_3278.JPG
Let’s talk outfit for a second!
I scored this gorgeous mint pleated maxi dress at JCPenney for an amazing deal using the magic of stacked coupons!
I saw the dress and I immediately knew I had to have it for this look but the price tag was a whooping $80 bucks!
I waited about 2 weeks and the dress was on sale for $60. Not bad. But being an avid clearance shopper I wanted more savings.
So I had a $20 OFF $50 mobile coupon using my Snip Snap App (hallelujah!)
And then the sweet cashier said that I had a $10 OFF style rewards coupon available!!
Whoooo! Scored this dress for $20!
Now that’s my kind of deal!

Coral, Turquoise & Leopard!

Hello there!

Happy Thursday Everyone!

Boy what a rainy week its been! Hopefully these May showers will bring summer already!

IMG_1856

Now I absolutely love the rain and even thunderstorms (the noise of thunderstorms relaxes me) but I am kinda bummed out this week because I had plans for a super fun photo shoot but due to the weather it has been delayed!

So I guess I’ll have to do a casual outfit post today!

Now let’s talk about something that every girl should have in her wardrobe!

LEOPARD PRINT!

IMG_1864

I am a huge believer that leopard is a neutral! I mean the options are endless!

I wanted to make a ”Modest In Leopard Look Book” to show different ways to style a classic leopard print!

IMG_1866-0

For today’s outfit I wanted to keep it simple but still have vibrant spring colors! (Even though its pouring out!)

So I decided on wearing my leopard peplum top I purchased from Poshmark! Out of all the clothes I own, this top is still being worn over and over again! I try not to repeat outfits but this top is just too cute!

IMG_1862

Since we can all agree that leopard is a neutral I decided to wear a coral pencil skirt and a pop of turquoise on my shoes and necklace!

IMG_1860

I can remember seeing this color combo on Pinterest and having an ”A-HA” moment!!

IMG_1863

My skirt was a thrift score find! It was brand new with tags and everything!

I love pencil skirts! They are casual enough to wear everyday but can easily be dressed up with a few accessories!

IMG_1861

IMG_1879-0

Now this wouldn’t be a look book without a couple more outfits right!?

Here’s a roundup of all my modest in leopard looks!

I hope you all enjoy!!

God Bless You!
