Geaux Tigers!

Another win for the Tigers!

We are having an amazing season and hopefully everyone is having a good semester! I had some awesome experiences this weekend, starting with Fall Fest!

On Friday, hundreds of LSU students gathered on the parade grounds for food, entertainment and tons of activities. I was able to talk about Ring Day on stage. In case you missed it, Ring Day will be held on November 15th. If you are an undergrad with 75 hours, you can get a ring! Talk to your parents about it, it's a great investment! Your School Ring is an amazing way to connect you to the wonderful traditions of our school.

On Saturday, I was able to attend Family Weekend. I met tons of wonderful students and their families! It was a great weekend and in you missed it, have your parents join the Family Association so you can stay informed on other family events happening on and around campus.

I am only 3 weeks away from competing in Miss Louisiana-USA. I'm getting so excited to represent LSU on that stage. I've been busy with fittings, fitness, dieting and of course practicing my walk.

If YOU would like the opportunity to represent LSU at Miss Louisiana--USA next year, you should consider competing for Miss LSU-USA! The pageant will be held on April 10, 2016! The contestant registration packets are here on our blog under "Become A Contestant."

If you have any questions shoot me a message and I will be happy to give you more information!

Fun fact: armadillos carry leprosy. Isn't that crazy?

Weekly challenge: Spend some time outside this week. The weather is beautiful! Whether it's to study, a trip to the dog park, a run, or even a picnic, GO OUTSIDE! It's very therapeutic and calming to experience nature! So go out there and get some free therapy.


Happy Monday!

I hope everyone enjoyed their week, but no worries if you didn't, there's a lot of exciting things to look forward to this week!

On Friday, it's Fall Fest! Mike the Tiger and I will be appearing at this year's Fall Fest on the Parade Grounds at 12:30 p.m. to talk about Ring Day. But let's be honest, we are all just really excited about the free food... and cheering on our Tigers this weekend as they play Michigan!

It is also Family Weekend this weekend, so bring out your parents and join us on the Parade Grounds for the Family Weekend Tailgate!!

Now on to the real fun...

It's crunch time for me as I prepare for Miss Louisiana USA... October 23rd & 24th are right around the corner! Tickets are on sale now at! I cannot wait to represent our beautiful university as I compete for my dream title.

One of the most important parts of the competition is interview portion. If you are going to represent the state the judges want to know more about your personality, goals and how you plan to represent the state of Louisiana.

If you would like to help me prepare, comment with a question that YOU would ask if YOU were the judge!

This brings me to this week's Weekly Challenge: Do something spontaneous! Whether it's doing something that you've never tried before, walking into a building that you pass by everyday but have never entered, or attending a random band's gig ... Just do it! You never know who you will meet or what you will experience!

Happy Fall Y'all! And don't forget to be 

awesome today and throughout the rest of the week!




Hey everyone!

First,  I want to give a huge “Geaux Tigers!” to our football team who has been kicking butt, but also to our students for the endless support that you all send to the team. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to make the Auburn Game because I was in New York City modeling for Jovani! What an amazing experience. We were able to do photo-shoots at beautiful mansions in Long Island, New York! These photos have a chance to appear in various prom magazines such as Seventeen (which has always been a dream of mine).

We toured around the city, ate at some amazing places and I even carried my Miss LSU-USA banner all the way to the top of the Empire State Building to show my school spirit on game day!

Now that I'm back home, I have SO many amazing things to look forward to. After my sponsors at Nail Finiti patch up my torn feet and Salon Du Sud give my damaged hair an amazing treatment, I'm ready to spend my next few weeks preparing for Miss Louisiana-USA, which is in October! I can't wait to continue with my preparations to the state pageant and represent Louisiana State University!

Check out my pictures from the Big Apple and stay tuned for more updates leading up to the pageant right here on the official Miss LSU blog and social media. 

My weekly challenge for you this week is to reach out to someone who seems down, whether it's your friend, family member, or another student in Middleton. My platform is "Breaking the Silence. Mental illnesses are illnesses too."

A simple gesture can make the biggest difference in someone's life, it could even make the difference between life and death. Suicide is the 3rd leading cause of death in college students.

So let's #StartTheConversation and surround ourselves with positive energy all week and Geaux Tigers!



A message from Miss LSU-USA 2015,

Hi Guys!

I’m so excited to get started on my new blog to keep everyone updated on all of the wondering things going on around campus as well as my journey to Miss Louisiana USA!

First off, I hope everyone had a wonderful and safe first game day in Death Valley!  It’s so amazing to have the opportunity to represent a school that is so spirited as ours.  Not only am I able to represent our school on a day-to-day basis, but I also get to represent LSU at the Miss Louisiana USA pageant in October!

For those of you who aren’t familiar with Miss Louisiana USA, it is a prelim to Miss USA! The competition includes interview, swimsuit, evening gown, as well as an onstage question if I were to make the Top 5.  In order to prepare for this pageant, it takes a lot of hard work.  Not only have I been working with my trainer five days a week, but I’ve been on a very strict diet plan to insure that I’m in tip top shape!  Another way to prepare for the pageant is making sure that I am up to date with all of the current events happening in our state, country and world!

Before I head off to Lafayette to compete for Miss Louisiana USA, I fly out to New York Fashion Week to model for the designer JOVANI.  I was honored to be chosen in the top 12 of the semi-finalists to embark on this amazing adventure.  I take off on the 16th of September and return on the 21st!

To stay in the loop on all of things that I’m doing during my reign, like my Facebook Page: Miss LSU-USA and follow me on Instagram: @ashleybarbier @misslsuusa !

Stay tuned for my next blog! And Geaux Tigers!

Fun Fact: I can make my stomach growl whenever I want to! #talent
