Hey, I’m Ashlea, nice to meet you.

I’m so glad you’ve found your way to my blog, I hope you stay a while.

In my twenty years of existence, I have a record of giving my friends handwritten letters explaining the reasons why I think they are incredible humans. I’ve put them in birthday cards, posted one to a best friend who lives a hundred miles away and handed one out at prom that I had promised months in advance. But despite the one hiccup that caused way too much drama, I have continued to write letters and I hope I never stop.

I actually started my blog as a creative outlet for my 9-5 working self. After years of studying media, photography and drama, I wasn’t exactly used to working full time in an office. I needed a project; something to keep me busy, satisfied and a place to document this young and interesting mind of mine that I understand will be forever changing. So I guess that is where the story of Always, Ashlea begins.

I don’t know where I’m going on this unpredictable road of life, but I hope you come with me. We’ll talk soon!

Always, Ashlea


Oh, a P.S. Now that we are officially friends, I feel like you should know a few things about me first. (And isn’t that what an About page is actually all about?)

  1. I am a perfectionist, an over-thinker, a daydreamer, an aesthete and an optimist.
  2. My favourite season is Autumn. (Nothing beats cosy scarves, hot tea, books & fireplaces)
  3. Cats are my spirit animal.
  4. I taught myself how to play guitar at age 15 and have written songs.

  6. If I could be anywhere right now, it would be New York City.
