Singh Farms

One of the best things about living in a large city like Phoenix is that I am constantly discovering new gems right in my backyard.  I heard about Singh Farms last year from a girlfriend and I had no idea what to expect.  Truthfully, I have never been impressed by a lot of the Farmer’s Markets in the Phoenix area. That was until I visited Singh Farms. The craziest thing to me is that this farm is 3 miles from my home and the minute you enter into it you feel like you’re in a different state.  It is a lush, secluded hideaway that offers fresh produce, fruit, homemade breads, locally raised eggs as well as fresh roasted coffee!! Honestly, what else do you need? If you are ever in the Phoenix area, Singh Farms is a must see!

“We’re not in Kansas anymore!”

It’s been awhile since I have blogged or even logged onto my website.  I told myself when I started this bad boy 3 years ago that I would never allow writing and sharing with you all to become an item on my to-do list.  Sometimes life happens and unfortunately my little passion project tends to get the backseat.  And boy did life happen this past month.
I attended a funeral for someone who was very near and dear to me.  I have only been to one other funeral before so this was really new.  The pain from a death like this was something way bigger than I could have imagined.  It very much crippled me and made normal routine events and tasks seem oddly difficult.  I  don’t think you ever get over the death of a loved one and I am realizing that is ok.
One thing that kept popping in my head over the past month is how “we’re not in Kansas anymore.” Life is tough and real and serious and sad and scary and it hurts.  I have obviously known this for awhile now, but every time life happens I am reminded how precious it truly is.
So, I can sit here and be sad & fight the process or I can face life head on with all it’s experiences, challenges and scariness.  I choose the latter.  I am so thankful for my amazing little life.  Every circumstance good or bad makes me stronger, wiser and more compassionate of others.  I am grateful for that.  I am happy to be alive, to live in a beautiful place with my favorite people and to feel real love all around me every single day.  My goal for 2015 is to focus more on the content in my posts rather than a quick outfit recap. I want to dream bigger, be better and share more of my heart with all of you.  So without further adieu, Black is back. :)

7 FAM Private Holiday Trunk Show

seven for all mankind scottsdaleLast night I had the opportunity to attend a private Holiday Trunk Show at the 7 For All Mankind store in Scottsdale Mall.  Not only was most of the store on SALE, but they also made the cutest most DELICIOUS custom cookies in the shape of denim pockets. (I may have had 1.5) :) The Scottsdale 7FAM knows how to throw a shin dig, right down to the small details.

I ran into two of my fav blogging babes Latisha & Alyssa.  It was so much fun catching up with them, sipping champagne, and of course trying on some of the hottest holiday pants ever!!!!!!

Thrifted Mixed Prints

Good Afternoon friends,

I am back from NYC!! To say I had an awesome trip would not do it  justice.  It was a once in a lifetime opportunity and I had so many amazing moments while being there. I’ve been to NYC before, but this trip was just magic. I literally cried upon leaving. I saw my first Broadway show, visited the new World Trade Center, biked across the Brooklyn & Manhattan bridges, stopped into the Bollare showroom, visited the Lesportsac office, consumed WAY too many street gyros, caught up with several college friends, and sipped some of the finest cocktails I have ever had in my life.  I look forward to sharing more with you throughout the week.

Today’s look is comprised of mostly ALL thrifted/vintage pieces. :)
