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.

AVC’s Top Outfits of 2013

I thought it would be fun to check out my analytics to see what interested you as my friends, blogger pals, and readers over the past year.  I really had no idea what they were going to be and I am not surprised at all about how different each look is from the next.  Remember when…IMG_5763 IMG_5679IMG_5383IMG_5288IMG_5849IMG_5343

My Morning With Kendra Scott

Last week I had the pleasure of spending the morning at the Kendra Scott store at the Scottsdale Quarter. I had never visited the store before and was anxious to check out all the gorgeous gems in person.  Kendra is primarily known for her Color Bar.  The Color Bar is designed for you to be able to pick and chose what item you would like and then create what stones to put in your piece.  It is very interactive and easy to use. There are so many different choices, but in true Amy Black fashion I picked and committed to the first combination I chose.  :)kendra-scott-scottsdale-quarter-store-front 77ac1a44158811e3a61a22000a9e06f0_7 CB_howto_for_print k3 k1
