A few weeks ago I headed about an hour and a half south from Phoenix to the beautiful, Arizona Inn. I have been to this property a handful of times, but never had the chance to stay in one of the darling suites. The luxury Inn has 92 casita-style rooms that spread over 14 acres of gardens, fountains, flowers and lawns in the heart of mid-town Tucson, Arizona. It is the perfect mix of desert succulents and beautiful florals. One of the things that has always drawn me to this one of a kind hotel is the history of it.
Arizona Inn has been family owned and operated since its creation in 1930 by Isabella Greenway. Isabella was Arizona’s first congresswoman, how bad ass is that? She also was besties with Eleanor Roosevelt who was a frequent visitor at the Inn. (John Wayne would stay here too) After 8 decades this world-renowned resort is still fulfilling Isabella’s original promise of a desert oasis filled with privacy, quiet and sunshine.
This place is also very special to me because it was where my grandmother use to stay every year while she visited my mother and her siblings at UofA. That’s the beauty of historic pieces and places, the memories & the stories that they keep decade after decade. I hope you have the chance to experience this gem for yourself someday. AZ Inn is located at:
2200 E. Elm Street
Tucson, Arizona 85719

Have a great rest of your week!
Shortly after Christmas I got the opportunity to take a road trip through New Mexico & Texas with my girlfriend Ashley. I have been fascinated by Marfa, Texas since first hearing about it. I was living in San Diego managing a restaurant in a high touristy area and one of my customers who was visiting from Europe told me about his recent trip there. He had killer style and told me if I was into fashion and the arts that it was the place to go. Then began the googling…oh my gosh this places looks awesome!!! If awesome to you means small, ghost townish, one street, literally one stop light. And you’re comfortable seeing the same people at all the same places because there just aren’t that many. It almost felt like a time warp. Pretty awesome if you ask me. I will share more about what we did in the town of Marfa later next week, but for now here are some shots of us getting into town. The Prada store is actually in Valentine, Texas so it was our first stop. No, it’s not actually a store, but there are shoes and bags inside. Read more here. If you get the chance to head to Marfa definitely do it. There isn’t a direct airport which makes it hard to get to, but it’s about an hour outside of El, Paso which is an easy flight. I hope you have a great day!
I couldn’t wait to soak in all the desert landscape at Tanque Verde Ranch. I found this long fringe number that I still had not worn and knew it would be perfect.

I have always loved Valentine’s Day. As a kid I can remember the candy and as I grew up I looked forward little surprises from my dad. In college it was all about my glamentines. Then we opened Jimmy & Joe’s, my family’s pizzeria’s. I have managed all of them at one time and Valentine’s Day is one of our busiest days of the year. Now, I know what you’re thinking “V-day? really? for a pizza place?” Well, it’s true and a lot has to do with offering these bad boys below. That’s right people we make heart shaped pizza’s all weekend.
Considering the busy day and weekend, Dapper Fellow and I normally stay in and try and do something fun and relaxed together. Last year we cooked lobster tails for the first time and had champagne. This year we have friends coming into town so we decided for an early v-day dinner. We tried a new restaurant in our neigborhood called Ticoz that we both enjoyed.
What are you doing this weekend for Valentine’s Day?

I always love a good adventure. Last weekend My Dapper Fellow and I ventured down south to the Tanque Verde Guest Ranch for a weekend stay of ranch life, horses and the wild, wild west.

Tanque Verde Ranch is located 2 hours south of Phoenix, AZ. The resort is equipped with all-inclusive accommodations catering 3 meals a day and endless activities to keep you happy and occupied. Everything from hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding to yoga, fishing or sand volleyball is available. We woke up early Sunday morning and did the Breakfast Ride which was the highlight of our trip and I will share more later this week. Our Casita in the photo below was fully equipped with more than we needed. All the rooms at Tanque Verde Guest Ranch are tv-less in attempt to get you to detach from everything necessary for the week/ed.
I look forward to sharing more about our stay later this week. I hope you make yourself a great day!

Super excited to share with you a new online boutique called PinkBlush that I have been working with that has some awesome, fashionable pieces that are ridiculously affordable. I immediately fell in love with this bell sleeved black little number, I look forward to pairing this dress with high boots in the fall and winter! (maybe even with tights)
*FYI* —- The best part about this online boutique is that they actually offer a fashionable maternity line with some of the same patterns and styles! I know from girlfriends who have been pregnant that it can be a challenge to find cute, fashionable maternity dresses. Perfect for all you mamas!!!
