By now I am pretty sure you have discovered my shoe addiction but you may not know about my sunglasses fetish! My car console is jam packed with a dozen different pairs of sunglasses and my new go to pair for this Spring is the ever so stylish Hollywood Blvd from FantasEyes! They have awesome accessories but I am obsessed with their eye wear. I own three pairs :) Just sayin… you won’t be disappointed.

I love fall in Arizona. It means lots of fun hiking adventures, pumpkin spice everything, and crisp fresh air. I love opening my windows and letting my house air out. One thing is for sure, it’s not cool enough yet for scarves, boot socks, or other fun fall accessories but I still love incorporating some fall favorites into my wardrobe like colors, jackets, and hats. AZ will keep cooling down but until then I am all about the light airy fabrics mixed with some of my favorite jewel tones! Happy fall y’all!

First off, I am in love with my new Express shirt so much so that I wore it two weekends in a row! But who cares, right :) Now if you need to know one thing about me is that I seriously GEEK out over animals. It doesn’t even matter what kind, I just want them all! So, hubs took me to the World Wildlife Zoo that is 10 minutes from our house. I can’t even explain how excited I was to find this living Africa in the middle of nowhere Arizona :) This happy girl was thrilled when a beautiful giraffe walked over and leaned down to lick my hand. I was like a little kid on Christmas! I also tried this three part pony tail to add some length to my hair since I am in the awkward phase of growing it back out and I loved how it turned out, apparently the little parrot above liked it too (:

Hope you have a wonderful weekend

Cam and I have been trying hard to have planned weekend dates together since we barely get to spend time together let alone see each other during the week. It’s been rough but in a couple months we get a nice long break together and I cannot wait (hint hint we are going in winter but there it is summer!) We love to just stay home and binge on our favorite tv shows (guilty!) but we also love to explore a little of AZ.  Some of our favorite dates the past few weeks have been to Old Town Scottsdale, The Gilbert Temple (including Kneaders of course!) and The World Wildlife Zoo. (:

Wishing you a beautiful Sunday!

I have been obsessed with this skirt for quite a while now and finally just purchased the beauty! I am so in love with it and wish I could wear it everywhere! It sure give a good light show when it hits the sun :) I was thinking about how when one beam of light hits the fabric it projects tons of light and sparkle around the room. I think my focus for the rest of the year is to do the same as I come into contact with numerous people whether it be patients at the hospital, parents or youth at church, or a stranger on the street. I want them to see my shine and have my presence, however long or short, be a positive and uplifting one.

“never let anyone dull your sparkle”

Look Up

This is my new favorite go to braid. I love how easy it is and can help dress up an outfit for any occasion!  I was reminded this week about a quote from the prophet of our church, President Thomas S. Monson when he said, “Now, remember, it is better to look up.”  Recently I have been challenged with seeing only the negative in situations and feeling discouraged with how I was going to shine a positive light and make a difference. The thought came in my head to ‘Look UP’ not only physically but spiritually. God IS all knowing and knows best how to handle situations. I knew that my doubt and fear was not from Him and I needed to change my attitude and have a little more faith. So far, everything is working out great and I am excited for upcoming Fall months!

Happy Friday!
