AshleyForster.com was launched in 2016 as a place to inspire style and fan the flames of wanderlust.
It’s home to the 2016 #YearOfTarget Project, a 365-day challenge where all of Ashley’s beauty and style needs were purchased at Target. If you’ve ever walked into Target for a gallon of milk and walked out with a $250 receipt, this blog is for you. (And let’s be real for a moment…that’s pretty much everyone.) You can see daily snippets of the challenge on Instagram.
Stick around the site a while and you’ll also find yourself dreaming of your next vacation. Travel tips and tricks will help make your trip hassle-free. Trip reports and destination information will make planning a breeze. Whether you’re planning your first trip to a Disney Park, or planning a tent camping trip in the Adirondacks, you’ll find the resources you need right here.
And sometimes, I get personal. Every Friday, I share what’s on my mind, which books are on my nightstand, and some of my favorite things.
That’s me. Ashley. I’m a 30-something military wife and mother of two, living in the Washington, D.C. metro area. I work from home as a QA Analyst and Corporate Marketing Manager. When I’m really crazy, I train for half marathons (I have run two full marathons, but never again.)
If this were a personal ad, I’d tell you I love Star Wars, The Walking Dead, beer, tropical locations, and eggnog. I’m happiest when the sun is on my face and there’s sand between my toes (as long as that sand doesn’t make it back inside the house.) I am a compulsive list-maker, obsessed with Christmas and Halloween, and lover of classic films. I believe girl’s nights and child-free vacations are a requirement to a happy home.
My current daydream is to own a camper and spend a year traveling the country with my family. We may not get to travel around the country for a year, but by next summer, we should be able to take our first RV camping trip.
I also happen to love Disney. A lot.
So much so, I was selected to serve as a member of the Disney Parks Moms Panel (2012, 2014, 2015) and answered over 2,000 questions about planning a Walt Disney World vacation. I’ve also been featured on the Disney Parks Planning DVD and on Destination America’s Walt Disney World Resorts special.
I think that about sums it up. Oh, yes, if you’re a brand or agency looking to contact me, check out my Contact page or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
