About the Blog...

Welcome to A Cute Angle! The lifestyle blog was launched in June 2013 and was created as a place to women to gather and share their stories and ideas.

There are many different things on this blog that work to feature aspects of a woman's lifestyle. I often share favorite products and recipes, host giveaways, participate in link ups, and let the reader in on what's going on in my life. 
It's a safe place to receive encouragement from others and share with others. I am always looking for brave souls to share their stories, or at least a selfie. Don't be shy – no matter the walk of life I'd like to feature you. You can contact me via e-mail BloggerAsh703@gmail.com, on Twitter @ACuteLifestyle, or visit the Facebook page.

I don't claim to be a fashionista, personal trainer, therapist, makeup artist, or professional chef. I am just a normal girl - a girl who knows what she likes and likes what she knows.  

This blog wouldn't be possible with Tom McMeekin. To find out more or enlist his design, consultation, or editing skills check him out on Facebook or e-mail him at tmcmeeking@gmail.com. I am forever thankful for the time and energy that he has put into A Cute Angle. 
Thanks, Tom!

  • The nuttiest place I've ever visited was California. I'm an East Coast baby.

  • I hate all things citrus.
  • My sister is one of my best friends!
  • I live 600+ miles from where I grow up. I did it for a great guy.

  • I hate sharing a bed.
  • I'm a terrible person to share a bed with.
  • I can't have my syrup touch my bacon.
  • Some of the most important lessons I've learned are: (1) with hard work anything can happen, (2) always be yourself, (3) be responsible for your own actions, own up to your mistakes, don't place the blame somewhere else, (4) the size of your success is based on the size of your belief, (5) life's not fair (6) love, love, love
