Hi! I’m Ashley.

About Me

I am a wife and born-again Christian working in media in New York City.

I’m a born and bred New Yorker based in Queens, the most diverse of all the boroughs. I am a video journalist by training, and content creator by practice. I love writing (hence the blog), and it brings me great joy to create meaningful content.

I believe in the importance of going through life actively engaging in everything around you. With that, I am a lover of observing the world and I have no problem staring a little too long or listening a little too hard. You never know what you’re going to learn and how things are going to impact you. I’m interested in travel, culture, Christian living, beauty, style, home decor and cultural commentary. When I can find downtime, I love to pick through thrift stores, try new food and recipes, binge watch early 2000s sitcoms, discover new local gems, and meet new people.

About the Blog

Ashley Observes aims to be a multimedia hub focusing on the intersections of my interests – culture, travel, and lifestyle. It shares insights on cultural trends, media coverage, travel recommendations, beauty reviews, style snapshots and more. This is a community and a place to contribute. Please comment and share your own experiences and recommendations. I’d love to learn from you, too.

If you don’t agree with my opinion, please agree to disagree and don’t leave obscene or nasty comments.

I hope you all enjoy what I share with you and have a wonderful day!

“God is love. Therefore love. Without distinction, without calculation, without procrastination, love.
