What I’m listening to: Beyonce – Crazy In Love (Cover) by Daniela Andrade

Valentine’s Day is just a few days away! What are you doing to celebrate? My husband, Todd, and I celebrated early since it falls on a Wednesday this year, and he’ll be working late that night. Todd had the most gorgeous box of roses delivered to me from Venus et Fleur! There’s 49 light pink roses in a white square box with gold writing and the best part? They last for an entire year! Their perfume is so potent too, I opened them up in my room and you can smell them throughout our entire home! And you can’t have roses without chocolate right? Godiva gifted me a few boxes of their chocolates, which I could not be more ecstatic about. If you know me, you know I love chocolate, especially dark. Godiva is one of my favorite brands too. Their chocolate is so decadent and rich, just the way it should be! My dogs clearly knew I was partaking in something worth begging for, but unfortunately for them, they can’t have any since it makes them sick. And fortunately for me, there’s no sharing when it comes to my chocolate anyway. For his present, I rented a bright yellow Lamborghini Gallardo for the day and we cruised all around town in that bad boy. We went to lunch in downtown Gilbert at Even Stevens (so good!) and dropped off lunch to my dad who just had surgery on his eye and while we were there gave my three little nephews a ride around the block in it. They were going absolutely nuts over that car, it was hilarious to watch. Boys and their toys! Then we grabbed a treat from Andy’s Frozen Yogurt and went home to get ready for our date night! We went for a fancy dinner at Mastro’s City Hall, which was divine. We had 30 minutes to kill before our movie started afterward so we dashed across the street and popped into Nordstrom to do a little window shopping. It was such a fun-filled day. We went all out and did things we’ve never done before, because why not? This is the year of “Why Not?” for me. I’m going to do things I’ve always wanted to do because I realize now more than ever, there’s no time like the present.

Hey guys! Remember me? It’s been a while, but I have a lot to talk about today, so let’s get right into it! First of all, this post was inspired by my girl, Maddie Thompson, of MadluvvBrows! If you don’t follow her on Insta, girl you better get on that because she is the definition of a GIRL BOSS! We worked together almost four years ago on these posts here & here! She has grown her business exponentially since then, and I’m so proud to know her. She’s hilarious and extremely talented, plus she just moved back to Arizona, yee haw! I had my brows microbladed a few years back, but haven’t had any touch-ups since so they had basically faded away except for a few tiny spots, and Maddie brought them back to life! It’s insane how much they can lift and shape your face when they’re colored and shaped just so! Check out her website, madluvv.com!

THIS JACKET! This jacket, this jacket, this jacket. I was searching high and low for an oversized denim jacket and stumbled upon this beauty. It was love at first sight. I adored the vintage vibe but with an updated girly twist! I mean, how can you say no to pink fleece lining? And that perfect juxtaposition of baby pinks with light blues? Yaaaas honey. I honestly had butterflies waiting for it to arrive on my doorstep. That’s how you know it’s real, true, everlasting love. This bodysuit is INCREDIBLE! It literally sucks you in in all the right places & makes you look like you practice ballet on the regular, gimme that ballerina body! Adding this belt is one of my favorite ways to amp up any outfit, taking it from basic to bangin’. I seriously get compliments every time I wear it! My husnand gifted me the new Apple Watch for my birthday, and I basically can’t live without it now. It’s such a game changer for workouts and tracking daily physical activity, plus it looks super cute with the rose gold case and pink sand band!

Did you notice, both of my Yorkies made a debut in this post! Gatsby is the bigger one, he’s about 12 pounds and two years old! I don’t think he’s been featured here yet because, ahem, I have been lacking in posting. And Lola is the smaller one, she’s around six pounds but will be five in May! I can’t believe I’ve had her almost five years! I am obsessed with my dogs, they’re like my children right now, helping me fill the void of being baby hungry. Where my fellow dog moms at?

Well well well, look who decided to show up! Me! I’m referring to myself in the third person. And yes, it’s almost been two whole years since my last blog post, so to sum it up really quickly let’s just say a LOT has happened since January 30, 2016! But I saw this draft just sitting there, pictures all taken, edited, just waiting for some copy to be added to its lonely little self. So, I obliged because I have some free time now… which is another story for another time! Onto the outfit: Clearly most of these items above are sold out since it’s been so long since I took these photos in Sedona! Don’t you fret, though, because I did a little digging and found similar styles, if not nearly exact! So in the words of Maui from Moana, You’re Welcome!

So, I know it’s been a while since I last posted, sorry about that! Things have been really busy with work and life in general. Also, my camera is currently broken and it’s going to cost over $200 to fix, so there’s that. Anyway, here are more photos from our quick day trip to Sedona! I wish we could have spent more time there, it’s such gorgeous, scenic place! I was definitely feeling the boho vibes for this outfit! I’m loving anything fringe, tasseled, lace-up and this folk print dress went perfectly! Plus, it’s on sale for only $34 right now, such a great find!

These pictures were from when Krystal, my husband and I took a little day trip up to Sedona. I had never been before so I was itching to go! However, I wouldn’t recommend a day trip because one: It’s so gorgeous you need more than a day to soak up it’s beauty, and two: I am apparently very sensitive to altitude adjustments and because it is 4,500 feet above sea level, driving up and down in less than 24 hours plus add on that I get extremely motion sick was not the best combination for me. I also made the mistake of not taking Dramamine because I didn’t want to be drowsy during such a short trip and I figured I would be okay if I sat in the front seat and had my mind off of it since it was supposed to be a short drive. But we made the mistake of going when there was a Dia De Los Muertos parade going on, so instead of taking 2.5 hours each way, it took around 3.5 on the way up and almost 5 on the way back. (!) I was suffering from the side affects of altitude/motion sickness for the rest of the week, it was brutal. Is anyone else sensitive to motion/altitude like I am? I get sick in the car, on planes, on cruises, at carnivals, basically anything that is moving while I’m on it. Ugh, I’m getting dizzy right now just thinking about it! Time to change the subject!

Pastels in fall are so underrated! Sometimes we get stuck in the seasonal color rut of burgundy, camel, black, navy, olive, repeat… But I like to keep things interesting and throw other shades into my rotation. Plus, dressing like it’s fall when it’s still 80 degrees in Arizona isn’t the most practical thing anyway! Mint green, light pink and purple are some of my favorite color combos, and I love wearing them in the autumn! In fact, I have on my favorite milky white/baby pink nail polish, OPI’s “Mod About You” right now. Die for this color. P.S. is this not the perfect stocking stuffer? I mean, I think I need it for myself! I’m currently obsessing over all the cute phone cases since I recently upgraded to the rose gold (!) iPhone 6s Plus. The first thing I bought before my iPhone even arrived in the mail was this iPhone case by Sonix! They make some of the most darling phone cases, and they are surprisingly durable considering how inexpensive they are! Anyway, I hope you all had a Happy Thanksgiving! I had lots of pumpkin pie and a 4 day weekend, ’twas glorious!
