Remember the adorable Ashley Spivey from Brad’s season of the Bachelor? She was definitely a fan favorite, for sure! Well, I follow her on Twitter, heard she was engaged and was interested in checking in with Ashley to see what this lovely lady has been up to since seeing her on the show.
She still is as cute as a button, silly . . . and man, how I wish I had her amazing abs! We can all dream, right? So, let’s do a little catching up with Bachelor 15’s Ashley Spivey!
SA: How has your life changed since seeing you on the Bachelor?
Ashley: A lot has changed! Currently, I’m engaged to someone who I’ve been dating for 3 years and we are getting married next May!
SA: Do you have any regrets about being on the show?
Ashley: I think my biggest regret was not showing more of personality. I spent a lot of my time with Brad talking about sad things. I wish I would have shown the goofy side of myself a little more.
SA: Do you believe in the process of the Bachelor and think it’s a good way to find love?
Ashley: I think that is possible to find love thru the show – I’ve seen it firsthand! I watched Ashley and JP fall in love and then go on to have a very REAL love! I have also met Molly and Jason and Sean and Catherine and they are wonderful examples of how the show can work!
SA: Tell us a little about what you love doing in your free time!
Ashley: In my free time I love to workout, travel, and curl up with a good book. I read about 3 books in a week.
SA: Ok, let’s get honest, if you could describe this Bachelorette season in 3 words, what would they be?
Ashley: Insane, man-tears, rude dudes.
SA: Do you have a front-runner favorite?
Ashley: To be honest, I’m going to have to say that Kaitlyn is my favorite. I’m loving her attitude towards life and how she isn’t letting the show or the audience influence the decision she makes. While she might not be the typical Bachelorette, I think it’s nice to have someone make some “messy” decisions. We have all been there and I think we all need to step away from the judgy buttons.
SA: Enough about the Bachelor . . . tell us a little about your style.
Ashley: I have absolutely no style. I wear crazy workout pants and comfy gear mostly during the day and then I have “going out” clothes. My wardrobe needs a major update!
SA: Any favorite beauty “must-haves”?
Ashley: I am a crazy moisturizer person. I have 3 blue tubs of blistex on me at all times. I put kiehl’s moisturizer on the moment I step out of the shower. Once a month, I put aquaphor all over my body and then put on a long-sleeved onesie and put socks on my hands and feet. It’s not very attractive but my skin feels amazing after.
SA: I love inspirational words. What’s one of your favorite quotes?
Ashley: Life isn’t about finding yourself, it’s about creating yourself.
SA: I’m a pinterest “junkie”. What has been one of your favorite pins you would like to share with my readers. It could be anything! Link it up!
Ashley: I am in full crazy bride mode so I am pinning wedding stuff like there is no tomorrow. Unfortunately, all of my boards are secret so I can’t share any of those! However, I’m on instagram (@ashleyspivey) and snapchat (ashspi) so follow me on there for lots of pictures of the boy I nanny for, my fiancé sleeping, and what I typically eat during the week!
Thank you Ashley for taking the time to answer my questions. Best of luck during your wedding planning and lots of happiness and laughter to you both! Looking forward to seeing wedding pictures!
