The new Ashley B. Patton poses at the former historic Warwick Hotel (now Hotel ZaZa) just before walking down the aisle to marry the man of her prayers. Styled in this gorgeous strapless organza, high-low ball gown, complemented by royal blue stilettos from Aldo, Mrs. Patton was dressed to impress her guests!

Bio: Ashley B. Patton is a full-time mother, wife, and educator. A Houston native, Mrs. Patton loves to spend her spare time reading lifestyle books and writing about her life’s experiences in her blog.

I met the new Mrs. Patton thru Courtney Nicole, who is also one of my Blogger Icons! One thing that I can say about Ashley is that she is dedicated to motherhood! I love the posts about her little angel, whether she’s dressed in her cutest outfits, or whether she’s not feeling so hot…Ashley makes me proud to say that GOOD Moms do still exist!

Meet my new blogger boo Mrs. Ashley Patton!! Follow her blog!

Blogger: Table for One: http://thistable4one.blogspot.com
Chicago, IL

“I am most passionate about LOVE in every since of the word! I feel that every “good” deed comes from some form of love, be it charity, friendship, commitment or whatever! I am a single woman doing everything I can to leave my mark! I just want to have impact! The writing’s I post to “Table for One” are a true account of my daily victories and struggles. I feel that my experiences may in-turn, help, inspire or set example to my readers! Not just single women, but people in general. I know that writing about my experiences help me and the fact that they just MIGHT help someone else is rewarding in itself!”

Courtney has this “light”, hidden in her spirit, but spilling out of her smile; she is such a sweet person, and is very honest and “transparent” in her blogs. Being single was never said to be easy, and she makes it clear that it’s perfectly ok! Follow her blog’s twitter account of @MsTable4One to stay updated on her posts, her success as a blogger, and to find out what she has in store in the coming months! You don’t want to miss out!

My name is Indigo Donnelly representing Chi-town! I am a junior at SIUC majoring in Fashion merchandising (and styling). I have on a metallic silver crop top, black high waist leggings, and a pair of Jefferey Campbells. Something that I am very passionate about would have to be Fashion! It is something that I have always been interested in since I was a little girl. I love everything from vintage, to futuristic clothing and fashion is something that will be a part of who I am forever. I believe that you just need to possess the confidence, the attitude, and ROCK whatever makes you YOU! ^__^

Beautiful young lady, takes amazing pics, and we’ve become connected via twitter! Join me in welcoming my gorgeous Icon #7, Ms. Indigo Donnelly!!
