Female Features 03-05: Susie, Erica + Ashlyn

This week I have THREE amazing women to share with you — since the female feature list is growing, I decided to do weekly blog posts about the ladies I feature every week. Here’s who you need to get to know this weekend:

Susie of Ensusiasm

Susie is a business owner, blogger, and one hell of a motivator. Her optimism, positivity and overall zest for life is truly contagious! I deeply appreciate her willingness to talk about mental health, and her openness to share so many honest moments on her page.

Susie runs her coaching business remotely from wherever she chooses — whether it’s overseas in England where she lives with her boyfriend, visiting family and friends in the states, or another magical place in the world. She’s traveled ALL over and I love keeping up with her latest adventures!

Fun fact: Susie and I actually lived on the same floor in our dorm freshman year of college. We reconnected on Instagram years later and I’m so honored to be featuring her in this series! If you’re looking for a daily dose of motivation, positivity, and amazing tips about health, fitness and just life in general, Susie is your girl! Not to mention her daily music videos are hysterical and will make you want to dance right along with her! You can find Susie on Instagram at @ensusiasm or on her blog here.

Erica of Bring Your Own Kombucha

There are so many things I could say about this sweet friend. Erica and I connected around a year ago on social media through my business’ Instagram. She was one of my first online customers, and has continued to support me in so many ways. Erica is a new mama to baby Lizzie, wife, blogger, podcast host, lawyer and clearly an epic multi-tasker! I hold a very special place in my heart for her because she has been a loyal customer and supporter of my bath and body business since day one. She even had me as a guest on her podcast earlier this year!

On her blog, podcast and Instagram, Erica often talks about nontoxic beauty, skincare and household products. She shares a ton of helpful information and is always trying out new brands and letting her audience know when she finds something she likes. She has inspired me and many others to incorporate more nontoxic items into our daily life.

It’s been amazing to follow along as Erica blogs about living a nontoxic lifestyle, grows her podcast, and expands her family. She is truly such an inspirational woman and I learn so much from her every day. I’m so lucky to call her my friend! To see all of Erica’s helpful tips on living a nontoxic lifestyle, you can visit her blog and podcast, Bring Your Own Kombucha. Head over to her Instagram @bringyourownkombucha and show her some love today!

Ashlyn of The Honey Blonde

I don’t quite remember how I stumbled upon Ashlyn’s Instagram, but I’m sure glad I did! I appreciate this girl’s authenticity and sense of humor SO much! It’s always so refreshing to connect with real, honest people on Instagram, who don’t just share their “highlight reels” all the time. I love staying up to date on her blog and lately she’s been sharing new gift guides twice a week that are PERFECT for everyone this time of year. I’ve gotten so many great ideas from her already! I highly recommend you check them out as you work on your holiday shopping. Some of my favorite gift guides she has up on her blog are the Beauty Steals and Splurges (from Ulta), the Gift Guide for Him, and the Cozy Holiday Gift Guide. On top of these awesome gift guides, you can find some great fashion tips, her favorite products, and posts about mental health that are definitely worth the read.

If you haven’t realized it already, Ashlyn is SUPER relatable, has a great sense of style, and you will absolutely love following her blog and her posts on social media. You can find her at The Honey Blonde or at @ashburgett on Instagram.
