About Me

Hi everyone, I am Ashna.

Welcome to my blog!

I am working mom of 2 girls, living in sunny California with my husband, and my in laws.
I work from home,  so thankfully I get to be with girls all the time. I consider myself to be a dedicated, overprotective, and a slightly traditional mom. My husband is my biggest support; we are both perfectionist and practical Virgos :), and when we are not working, we spend time with each other and our girls.

Here is a picture of us on our wedding day!

I started blogging many years back. It was when I could not afford to own a website, and when I kept most of it private.

Writing has always been my passion and blogging my solace!  However, last year after reading Elna Cain’s How to Start a Mom Blog on TwinsMommy.com, I finally gathered some courage to dive in and start my own self-hosted blog!


Enter, Hacking Through Life

I’ll be drawing inspiration from my life as a working mom life of 2 girls aged 13 months and 4.5 years. Here you will find productivity tips as a work from home mom, beauty and health pieces from a makeup neophyte, and some product recommendations and routines.

Additionally, I live with in laws so on occasion you will see some rants surrounding privacy issues, lack of space, grandparents ruining our hard-work, and cultural drama. 😛

Nevertheless, my goal is to help and inspire you to achieve a work-life balance through my own experiences, while sharing some positive vibes along the way!


Thank you for stopping by!


Warm regards,
