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!
