Happy Friday! My goodness I can't believe September has literally flown by, just a full week left until we are into October. These weeks have been so busy for me as we prepare to have our wedding reception (read our elopement story here) in just a few short weeks. I am so excited / ready to have it over with... good thing we didn't have a full on wedding I would totally have gotten carried away!

Can we talk about this soft pink cold shoulder dress please?! I LOVE it! Its under $50 and fits true to size, I feel the arms are a little baggy but after trying a few cold shoulder dresses I think they are supposed to be loose. Since it is officially Fall I decided to style the dress with my leopard clutch (every girl needs one!) and black lace up heels for a more edgy look. My all time favorite statement earrings (on sale for $20!) go perfect with the leopard + pink feel, I am not kidding when I say I literally wear these earrings all. the. time! You can see some other posts with these earrings HERE + HERE

How fun is this bell sleeve scalloped hem sweater?! I am so excited to finally have it up on the blog.  I found it a few weeks ago while browsing through the LC Lauren Conrad collection at Kohl's and fell in love! I have posted it a few times on Instagram HERE + HERE  but today I decided to style it with my favorite Fall statement necklace  and cognac color accessories. 

Sorry for making it short and sweet today, I am preparing for tomorrow nights meet and greet here in Arizona! If you are in Az I will be at Beauty Brands San Tan Village for a Fall make-up master class! You can read more HERE and register HERE... totally free so come join the fun!

Salon Day at Beauty Brands
Monday, September 19, 2016


I paid a visit to the new Beauty Brands spa + salon at San Tan Village last week to take advantage of the spend $30 any shampoo, conditioner, or styling product and receive a FREE blow out! What! How amazing right? I don't know about you bust sometimes it is so nice to have someone else just wash and blow dry your hair for you. Here is a little about my salon experience! 

The newest product Beauty Brands stated caring (and what the use in their blow outs!) is this Living Proof line! Let me tell you, I have been using the dry shampoo and dry volume lift for about a week now and it is seriously life changing. Apparently this is the line Jennifer Aniston's stylist used on her hair in the movie We're the Millers.... anything Jen loves I love! No but seriously, its amazing. 

The salon is so pretty, all white everything! Gives you a nice fresh feeling! You also get a little head and arm massage during your blow out. I chose the lavender smell, it was so relaxing I almost fell asleep!

Since I already own a lot of living proof products I decided to try some new items as well. I bought the AG sterling silver shampoo, I have heard nothing but great things! It is a shampoo for blondes (or white hair!) who have a tendency to turn brassy. I can't wait to try. Also, I needed a heat protectant to spray on my hair when its dry so the stylist recommended this S factor flat iron shine spray (smells like fruit loops!). And then of course a travel size dry shampoo, since I always carry one in my purse with me!

 If you live in Arizona I am hosting an event this THURSDAY, September 22nd from 6pm - 7:30 at the Beauty Brands San Tan Village in Gilbert! It is a fall make up trend master class (totally free!) plus after we will be giving out coupons and doing a little sip and shopping! I am so excited! Space is limited so you need to register (link below) its totally free but is first come first serve. Seriously, so much fun so if you are in the area come hang out!
register for the event HERE!


Thanks Beauty Brands for the spa day, see you all on Thursday!

There are a few items I can't wait to talk about in this outfit. By the way,  a little side note, I walked out in the outfit thinking fully well Stephen was going to laugh at me and to my surprised he liked it! This rarely happens, I mean rarely! In Stephen's mind the less clothes the better.... he is clueless!

Anyways, lets start with the focal point of this outfit, the vest! I am obsessed! A little bright? Not for me.  I think the gold tone is perfect for fall! The material is heavy so if you are in a colder state (unlike me here in Arizona) this vest is a great transition into winter as well. Its under $30, yes under $30 and fits true to size!

The next piece I want to talk about, which you have probably noticed if you follow on Instagram, are these teal tassel earrings! They are $36 and come in multiple colors! I love the red + blush pink ones, they are next on my list to purchase!

Hope everyone is having a great week, it has been a busy one for me but I will continue to load up on my Pumpkin Spice and keep on keepin' on!
