Got2b Volumaniac

got 2 b

I was thrilled when Got2b sent me over some of their new products from their Volumaniac line. Volume is something I am always looking for more of when blow drying my hair. I am constantly trying to get that smooth blown out look that you get at the salon.

I found this massive round brush back in college and I have used it ever since, well not this exact one. But it does a really nice job at smoothing out the hair from root.

I have naturally curly hair so I am always looking for products that smooths and adds volume.  I started by applying the Mousse to my whole head, then applied the root boost. Finished up with the Hair Spray!

The best part about these products is how nice they smell. I tend to be a little picky when it comes to hair care smells and these are fresh and not too much. My hair felt smooth and full all day long. Thanks Got2b I am hooked!got2b2 got2b3

Bloguettes Brunch

Hello November! Time is flying over here. A few weeks ago I was fortunate enough to attend a brunch thrown by some of the coolest girls in town, otherwise known as the Bloguettes.  Started by two young, female entrepreneurs Sakura and Lorena, the Bloguettes purpose is to create a resource for bloggers, creatives, and entrepreneurs.  They hold workshops all across North America where they teach people the importance of digital presence for their individual brands or companies.

They also throw fun happy hours and meet-ups to encourage local Phoenix creatives to stay in touch and meet new people.  Last month they invited a group of us to attend a beautiful influencer brunch.  It was a beautiful setting, everything from the furniture, the food, great company, to the darling props.  I basically wanted to hang out there all day. :)

Summer Playsuit

Staying cool is always my first priority when getting dressed during the Summer.  I got this River Island playsuit on super sale last season and am finally getting the chance to wear it.  It has an open back (as seen here on my Instagram) which is perfect for these 110 degree temps.  Although I normally wait until fall for the Miu Miu’s to come out I thought they were the perfect embellished match.

Gingham

I am loving all the Gingham popping up all over. I have been watching some pieces online, but came across this Gingham beauty at my local Savers. Dresses are perfect for AZ Summers, anything light and breezy! :) I also paired it on Instagram with a tie here!

Venice, CA

I recently took girls trip to LA LA land. It was perfect break from the heat to relax and enjoy some sunny beach weather. While visiting I was able to spend the day in an area I hadn’t been before. It’s hard to believe I have been to LA dozens of times and never spent time in the amazing, eclectic, lively beach city they call Venice. amys vintage closet arizona amy black arizona fashion misguided dress misguided slit dress misguided babe misguided babes arizona fashion bloggers free people hat free people girl how to style a hat zara sandals amys vintage closet arizona amy black arizona fashion misguided dress misguided slit dress misguided babe misguided babes arizona fashion bloggers free people hat free people girl how to style a hat zara sandals amys vintage closet arizona amy black arizona fashion misguided dress misguided slit dress misguided babe misguided babes arizona fashion bloggers free people hat free people girl how to style a hat zara sandals

LGD

We all have a few perfect LBD’s that are a quick, guaranteed go-to. I now have found the perfect LGD (Little Grey Dress) from Forever 21 and only $12.90. Yeah, I know that price is ridiculous and that’s exactly why I purchased it in 3 colors. This bad boy is so comfortable. The lightweight jersey cotton is  just enough coverage and very breathable which is a Non-negotiable for me in the Summer.  Stay tuned later this week for the others :)

Vintage Levis

Happy Friday!!
Every girl needs a good pair of cut off shorts. No matter what the age or body type shorts are a must in the summer.  It seems that every year the shorts keep getting shorter and shorter in the stores and a few years back I decided I would steer clear of them and cut old jeans to make and style my own. (I have done this to more than half of the shorts I own) Even if DIY’s aren’t your thing this is the easiest thing for anyone to do. It becomes really fun when you cut, fray and style a pair of old jeans from a thrift store because there is little to no investment, these were $7!!!!!

Levi’s are hard to find so I felt like I scored with this pair from Savers.  I simply cut them and allowed them to fray naturally.  I would wear them, then wash them, wear them, and wash them, even when they didn’t need to be washed I washed them because that’s what gets them frayed the fastest.

Mixing Bold Brights

Today I am sharing with you a little shopping secret.  A lot of people ask me where I get things from or where I like to shop and truly the answer is everywhere.  I browse Costco once a week to see if they happened to get in some article of clothing that I would like.  One of my favorite places to find unique and one of a kind pieces of jewelry is World Market.  I discovered this gem while living in downtown San Diego.  There was one across the street from my condo and I found myself wondering in there looking for the obvious, home items.  I had no idea they had a huge accessories area.  They also always have sales.  Trust me on this one, World Market, check it out!

Back to the Basics

I have been feeling the neutrals lately. There is something about warm weather, tan skin and crisp Whites Tans and Creams.  I never wear these hues during the week because of work so I try and take full advantage on the weekends.
