smart is the new pretty


My name is Ashley, and I’m a twenty-something lover of literature and cosmetics. This blog is dedicated to sharing all things books & beauty.


Growing up, I felt like an ugly duckling who was written off as the “smart girl” who liked to read. Now, I know that smart is pretty. Loving books doesn’t mean you can’t love makeup, and loving makeup doesn’t mean you can’t love books.
