Divine Llama Vineyards- Yadkin Valley

My New Best Friend From Divine Llama Vineyards

Hello, hello, bombshells!

I know I have been slacking big time on the blogging front, but I have a very good reason- 3 reasons actually.

Ok, before I spill on where I’ve been and what I’ve been doing, I wanna know how you’ve been! How have the holidays been treating you??

Anyone going anywhere amazing for Christmas or a New Years?

Cotton Candy Skies

Ok, time to dish: I have been insanely absent from TLD (in case you haven’t noticed, I swapped the “A” for “The” in the blog name- I’ll explain below why), because I have been working my regular job, creating a magazine, launching a web design business, and working on the first installment of a product line I’m creating.

I have been insanely busy these last few weeks!

Here’s a breakdown of each project:

The Magazine: ok, so this is what sparked me to actually change the blog from A Lifestyle Daily to The Lifestyle Daily.

Not a lot of peeps know this, but I originally wanted the blog to be “the” but the domain was currently taken by a bot, so I went with “A” and was never really in love with it.

And, since creating the magazine, The Lifestyle Daily just sounded so much better for that project and the domain was free, so it was as if fate was telling me something and here we are!

Getting off topic now.

So the magazine will launch in January, and will be a bi-monthly print or digital Lifestyle Guide for entrepreneurs- aspiring or current. And I am insanely excited because I have some amazing boss babes dishing on their business secrets, and I may or may not have a very popular author featured as well.

The magazine will be $10 for the print edition and $5 for the digital.

Now, I know you’re all wondering why I’m charging- first: for those who know me, you all know I am obsessed with the planet and animals. With every copy sold, I’m donating 10% to a charity of the month.

Also, a lot of time and energy is going into this to make it as amazing and helpful as possible.

Stripped By Cara Alwill Leyba

Each collection will have 40-55 pages of, at least, 4 Q & A’s with fellow bosses on starting a business, tips on time managment or de-stressing, travel, and more.

I’m insanely excited about this project, and if you are too, comment below and I will add you to the newsletter to keep you updated on the official launch date. I’ll be offering a discount on the regular price for a limited time.


Next project: The product line! This will be a forever evolving line. Every few months, the goal is to add more products (all vegan, eco-friendly, and cruelty free of course).

The first part of the line is going to be 5 amazing soy-based candles that smell like an absolute dream. Each candle has a burn time of about 100 hours and the scents were handpicked, by yours truly.

The line should launch around the same time as the mag, and I’ll be doing a pre-sale, so comment below if you’re interested!

The Classified Design- Affordable Website Design Services

And last, but not least, my friend Joanna and I launched a web design company called, The Classified Design.

Sooo excited about this because it was designed with our fellow babes on a budget in mind. We can design websites from scratch, tweak current sites, design business cards and logos, marketing materials… and all for a very affordable rate. Head to the site or email us at hello@theclassifieddesign.com if you’re interested!

This is for bloggers and small business owners, so whatever your site needs, we gotcha covered.

Ok, so that’s it in a nutshell!

Comment below if you wanna stay up to date on any of the above projects!! And thank you so much in advance to anyone who supports any of my business ventures. Because of you, I am one step closer to being able to do what I love everyday.

Xoxox, Ashlee
