About Me

Hey guys, my name is Ashna. If this is your first time stumbling in then Welcome! 🙂 So glad you stopped by!

A little intro about me:

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.


Blogging Journey

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

This blog is like my Zen space, where I come to relax, rejuvenate, and restore myself after having a chaotic day of work and chasing my girls. My 9-5 job is like any other; repetitive, and boring and despite what my husband says, I plan on staying in the cooperate world just a little longer!

However, to quench my creative thirst and soothe my tired soul, I started Hacking Through Life. Here you will find articles from a variety of niche – 1) I couldn’t really pick one, and 2) I planned on using my life as an inspiration therefore decided against settling for a topic or two.

I know in the era of IGTV and You tube it sounds silly to be dolling out blog posts, but when I first got inspired to start a blog, I strongly felt that someone out there may find my stories useful, or even inspiring. [This feeling came after we suffered a miscarriage and then had a complicated pregnancy after that – click here to read about it].

Here you will find productivity tips from a work-from-home mom, beauty and health pieces from a makeup neophyte, ideas on personal growth [how to be an even better you😉], and of course the joys and annoyances of mom life.

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 attempt a work-life balance through my own experiences, while sharing some positive vibes along the way!
