Hi, I’m Ashley!
I developed Box of Wild Things from a desire to share my passion for gluten free living, healthy habits, and of course fashion, beauty, good food, home décor, travel and more.
I was diagnosed with Celiac in 2004 when I was 19. Living gluten free hasn’t always been easy, especially after getting diagnosed smack in the middle of going to college.
Can you imagine not eating late night pizza in college?!
The world was not as gluten free friendly as it is today but I’ve learned a lot along the way and now I have a platform to share what I’ve learned with all of you.
I get irrationally excited about farmer’s markets, Mexican food, juice bars, miniature pigs, cotton candy, one-of-a-kind or hand-made anything, shoes, trying out new gluten free recipes…I could keep going but I won’t!
I cannot not live without honesty, being inappropriate, spicy food, margaritas, shoes, flea markets, yoga, running, foot massages, sunless tanner, and cheeseburgers. I have an affinity for midi rings, minimalist jewelry, and fringed leather bags. Oh and I definitely couldn’t live without sunblock, under eye concealer, dental floss, or my husband.
Some things I don’t like: bad breathe, cruelty to animals, sharing dairy products.
