Sunday Forever // Ashli Stockton
Doesn't get more glowy than kimonos, candles, and incense. Ashli Stockton created Sunday Forever to bottle up all that is good and nice in life. Get a look into her brand and see just how she GLOWS.
Sunday Forever gives the gift of comfort and good vibes that we all know and love about Sundays, just every single day. A girl after our own heart, Ashli Stockton is a self-proclaimed 'leisure enthusiast'. Like us, she is obsessed with being cozy, but with style.
As Ashli says: "As a self taught leisure enthusiast and nice thing lover I embarked on a quest to design a life where each and every day had the potential to feel cozy and magical...like they were Sunday Forever - the way Sundays were meant to feel. I’m excited to bring you Nice Things that bring comfort and help to ward off the "Sunday Blues". Here’s to Sundays, good vibes, and Nice Things. I’m glad you’re here."
Ashli had the idea to create her luxe yet cozy kimonos after she got home from a trip to Japan. She noticed that were was most certainly a gap in the apparel market for well-made yet a chic kimono that could double as a high-fashion piece. So she set out to create it herself. After leaving her corporate dream job, more on that below, she set out to surround herself and create things for all to feel their best and embody the best of vibes as possible.
All of her products are perfectly packaged and delivered straight to your doorstep. You can find bespoke candles and perfume scents created by Ashli, a range of silk and unique-patterned kimonos, incense, sage bundles, evil-eye jewelry, and crystals all on her site.

I tend to switch out my moisturizers depending on how my skin is feeling. If it’s feeling normal and happy I use Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Cream, if I’m breaking out I use Tata Harpers Clarifying Moisturizer and I’ve recently become addicted to the Beauty Pie Super Stem Cell Moisture Shot Serum.
