Nothing like a chill afternoon at Kushibar... this one of my favorite haunts in Belltown. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for yummy noodles & sake. Plus the staff is pretty rad & they have karaoke every Thursday night too ;)
When my friend handed me this dress saying it's been one of her favorites for a long time I knew it was going to be awesome! It fit perfect and I immediately fell in love so I just had to wear it the very next day. Jools if you're reading this you are seriously THE BEST!!!

Distressed Denim & Dead Flowers (D-I-Y Distressed Denim Jean Video Tutorial)

 I love 'upcycling' clothing and making old things feel new again. It makes me feel like some sort of clothing wizard... adding details that really elevate, giving that/the piece its magic back. While doing some online shopping for my birthday recently I noticed all sorts of distressed denim EVERYWHERE! I've being wanting to try out the 'boyfriend fit' jean for awhile now so I figured if I was able to find a pair of looser fitting vintage jeans I could distress them myself and make a tutorial to inspire others to do the same. As much as I would like to spend $50-100 on designer jeans, it's just not in my budget... but I was able to find the perfect pair at a thrift store for $6! This easy D-I-Y tutorial will be posted at the end so please scroll down & check it out! ;)
This gold and diamond necklace is another stunning piece from Rocksbox as well as the little gold bracelet. Styling the new jewelry I get from this subscription is always entertaining. The quality is flawless and the statement pieces are spectacular! I will definitely continue using this service. If you would like to try it out for yourself just use my code 'secretstashhxoxo' at check out and you will receive the first month free. <3

Rainbow Swirls & Gummy Bears // Happy 4/20 Stoners!

Hello Seattle Sunshine! I know I might not look like I'm ready for summer but my new rainbow platforms and lime locks have me trying. Also how appropriate is this outfit for 4/20 ;) SMOKE 'EM IF YA GOT 'EM! 
Trippy swirl tights match perfectly with my new shoes too! Check out the latest video on my you tube channel to see my 'First Impression' <--- Click it

Yet again I am super stoked over my hair! Ava at Tigerlily Salon is seriously the best when it comes to funky colors or any cut/color, she nails it every time! <3
The weather warmed up just in time for my sandals to finally come out! When I first tried them on they were a bit clunky to walk in but once I got used to them they felt perfect. I love the platform because it keeps my feet a good amount off the sidewalks, very important in urban living(+short people problems! ha)
Ahhh Spaceneedle PHOTO BOMB! LOL 
Until next post don't forget to check out my other sites...

I tend to update the sites above a bit more but I'm currently working on more posts for here too so don't miss out!!

Sparkly Space

OH MY HIIIIIYAA!! Wow this spring has brought so many new and exciting things into my life. Where to even start... I recently discovered this really awesome jewelry site (<-- click here to see how it works). This is seriously one of the coolest monthly subscription services I've come across yet and you can actually get ONE MONTH FREE just by entering my code 'secretstashhxoxo' when checking out! I posted a video of the unboxing to help give you an idea of what it's like-->Click here to watch.    
The first three pieces I received are all featured in these photos. Even though I don't normally wear a lot of gold, I figured this would be a great way to force myself into working with it more. Totally had me digging through my wardrobe but gave me the perfect excuse to FINALLY style my black milk galaxy dress for my blog. This dress was actually one of the very first pieces I ever bought from them back in 2011. I paired it with a black lace button up and skirt so the print would really pop and highlight the necklace. 

Cicily Necklace- Perry Street
Screw Stud Ring- Wanderlust + Co
Bali Tube Curved Bracelet- Gorjana
Galaxy Dress- Black Milk Clothing
Lace Button Up Top- Forever 21
Lace Skirt- Panache

Fremont Frolic & Special Announcements

Haven't posted a personal photo adventure in a long while... decided that our little outing to Fremont neighborhood would be the perfect opportunity to dust off the camera and take a few photos. I had my boyfriend Matt snap a few photos of my outfit.
 Matt gifted me this lovely jacket from a boutique called 'Free People'. Currently living dangerously close them so I'm certain you'll start to see more from this brand in my future posts. I really enjoy the detailing on the cuffs and back of the jacket. It's so gorgeous, totally one of my 'go-to' jackets for spring!
All the pretty flowers and green vines made my heart so happy! The weather has been very warm for a few weeks now and I've been enjoying every second of it :)
Jacket: Free People
Crystal Ring: CreationsbyaCat
Crystal Necklace: Open the Cellar Door
Heart Plugs: Dunnygun Body Jewelry
Boots & Skirt: Thrifted
Boot Socks: Borrowed from a Friend
This gorgeous crystal ring was made by the amazing Creationsbyacat and she has officially made me a rep for her jewelry!! Which means if any of my lovely readers purchase $25 or more you will receive 30% off! All you have to do is type 'secretstashh' in the box before you check out...   
Additionally I'd like to take this time to show you my very, very first video on my new Youtube channel 'Ash Stash'.

I would like to be more interactive as well so if you have any suggestions or questions please do tell and don't forget to 'subscribe' to my channel if want to continuing seeing more. Now without further delay I present to you...

Panda Bunz in Portland

Hello in 2015?!  Wow!! I can not believe all that has happened since my last post in September. I have been a busy little panda, working on all sorts of new projects that I can not wait to share with you!! Until then we should probably catch up on a bit of what's been going on since the end of summer...
In October, my boyfriend and I took a trip to Portland, Oregon to celebrate Halloween. We stayed the weekend at Kennedy School Hotel (if you've been reading my blog for awhile you know it's a place I'm a bit obsessed with--> Click here to see previous post). The stay was amazing & the rooms were so neat! They converted old classrooms into guest rooms and each room had a different theme. We stayed in the 'Rose Room' and it was seriously the cutest! Chalkboard covered walls, stacks of books, and no television anywhere to be found... now that's my kind of hotel room!
I know this isn't the warmest outfit but I've been wearing this look all winter, just add fleece-lined tights and a warm coat! Also I just have to add that I'm falling in love with 'choker' style necklaces. During the colder months they can really make an outfit pop, even with all your winter layers on.   
Crop Top & Tartan Skirt: Forever 21
Lace Necklace: Born Pretty Jewelry&Accessory
Carved Shell Plugs: Dunnygun Body Jewelry
Thigh High Socks: Sock Dreams
Spike 'Heelless' Platforms: Declared

 I didn't get as many photos of the room as I would have liked but I was able to sneak in a few outfit shoots while we were there. The photos in this post were shot by a local photographer Jordan of Fotos by Frankie. Consider this just a start to seeing much more from this blog in the new year... stay tuned for all the magic that is to come!! 
Hugs & Loveees <3
