Rad Mom Ashley Glass had high hopes of becoming a horse racing jockey when she moved from Michigan to Kentucky. Actually this 28-year old wife and mama had high hopes to do just about everything except what she’s flourishing in now!
Ashley has Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in teaching, and has been a special education teacher for the last 5 years. If that wasn’t enough, she’s also a professional photographer — go get ‘em girl! Her life took some unexpected turns, including a marriage at 20 and two amazing kids by 25, but she wouldn’t have it any other way. After nine years as a city dweller who once lived in a small town—she is all about realizing she doesn’t have to have it “together” all the time. We would say that’s Mom Rule #1.
Little’s Names & Ages: Our son Pierson is three and our daughter Reese is two.
Top Beauty Product You Must Have as a Mom: Bare Minerals Medium Beige Foundation — I don’t wear a lot of makeup but I like to apply this in the mornings before I leave for work or head out. Bare Minerals has been by far my most successful makeup as it works well with my pores and oily skin!
Favorite Chapstick or Lip Balm: Good ol’ fashioned Blistex DCT! I love that it leaves a glossy finish but not sticky lips.
Top 3 Pieces of Baby or Kids Gear: As cliche or 21st century as this might be, i-Pads are among the top three; they love to do coloring apps, put together puzzles and watch all sorts of songs via YouTube Kids. Baby wipes have to be on this list; two toddlers, 15 months apart from each other, well, you can imagine the mess right? And their fuzzy blankets… my babies are Linus babies–they have to have a fuzzy blanket on any car ride, 5 minutes or 5 hours, and they ‘can’t’ sleep without their favorite one!
Favorite Kids Clothing Brand: I love Old Navy the most for affordable and stylish clothing, I adore Gap Kids but sometimes it’s hit or miss for me. And a company that both my kids have been brand reps for is Cruz and Q — the founder is an amazing mama and the shirts are SO soft and comfortable, my kids LOVE them!!
Activity You Love To Do With Your Little: BAKING! It’s pretty much my therapy and something I try to do almost every weekend. Recently both the kids have wanted to bake with me — they “help” add ingredients, stir, remind me how much of something I need, etc. It’s wonderful. Chaotic, but wonderful.
Your Secret Obsession When You Get an Hour to Yourself: Writing! Whenever I can light some candles, sit in a quiet room and just jot down thoughts and goals, I feel like I got something (for me) accomplished.
Closet Staple That You Can’t Live Without: Jeans, a grey or earth tone t-shirt and my torn up Toms canvas shoes! I love cute maxi skirts and flowy dresses but let’s be real, I’m the mom of two energetic toddlers!
