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.
Had such a great time chatting with Lola, Sarah, & Allison

My main reason to encourage a great staycation starts with the pool life! I was on swim team at age 4 and never looked back. I love the fact that the Valley Ho offers two different pools for your convenience. The OH pool has a DJ at the pool and is very fun and lively, while the OHasis Pool serves as a quieter and relaxing alternative. Upon arrival we noticed that no one as at the OHasis Pool so we opted for rest and relaxation. It was easy to feel right at home.

Our second day at the resort happened to be on a Sunday. HVH offers Recovery Sunday’s where they offer several different packages to encourage guests to recover and relax. Sounds good to me! we ventured over to the other OH pool to relax in a cabana and their huge comfortable lounge chairs. It was a Sunday so it wasn’t crowded and we had such an amazing spread of fruit and veggies to enjoy between dips in the pool. If you ever get the chance to visit Scottsdale or are simply looking for a place to get away for the weekend I highly recommend Hotel Valley Ho. Thank you for such a memorable weekend and taking such good care of us. We will be back soon!

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!!!

We have at least another month before our temps drop here in AZ, but I am getting so impatient browsing the newest chunky knits, autumn hues and of course my favorite fall/winter accessory…hats! I snagged this Old Navy hat over labor day weekend.

Hey guys! Happy Tuesday! Time for my 2nd Coachella outfit inspiration post in my Coachella Inspiration series.
Today’s look is something I know all of you can easily duplicate. Starting with a printed tank, add some cut offs, ankle booties, fun sunnies and voila…an effortless Coachella outfit! I added the Shawl Dawl (last seen here). If you have any sort of similar shawl or kimono this would work as well, or simply leave it out.
