A dose of (slightly) Spooky...

I took a cue from Coco+Kelley and dreamt up my own version of a fabulous Halloween party. Like them, I'd prefer glam over gore.

I hope everyone has a safe and spooky Halloween weekend. One with more treats than tricks!

A dose of Fashion...

The blog world is a big one and it continues to grow, so I love when I happen to stumble across local (Arizona) fashion bloggers. It seems as though Arizona is kind of lacking presence in the fashion blog could be the 100 degree weather that makes getting dress miserable! Um layers? No thank you. So I've decided to share some of my recent favorites! Maybe you've seen them or maybe you have some you want to suggest. Either way, I'd love to hear your thoughts!

This gorgeous gal was just featured in The Phoenix New Times magazine! You can check it out here and if you take a peak at some outfit posts you will surely become a fan of her fab style. (and her great hair!)

This duo are former Arizona Republic reporters. If your a local, you will definitely want to put them on your reading list. Their newly created blog features local fashion trends, events, deals and of course, great outfit posts.

944 Magazine labeled this gal a "must read". I kinda would love to have her closet!

So there you have it. I hope these will become some of your favorites as well!

A few of my favorite things...

These are a few things I've been loving as of late and I thought I'd share. I love hearing about new products, places etc. so feel free to share your favorites!Urban Decay 24/7 Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner

This is the best liquid liner I've tried so far. It goes on super smooth. The extremely thin brush allows for an easy, sharp application. It literally stays in place all day long (my test, an hour nap and no need to fix or reapply). Normally I steer clear of anything "waterproof" because it's usually a pain to remove but this acts almost like a latex or eyelash glue and sort of peels off with washing.
This leads us to my next favorite...

I swear I cant leave this store without purchasing a few new things to try. I go in with something in mind and I end up browsing for at least hour...kinda like everyone's Target experience I'm sure. Now usually I hate stores that want to "help" you shop (eh em.. Buckle) but I encourage you to work with someone while shopping at Sephora. They are very knowledgeable and always willing to give free samples of products you might be interested in! These are perfect to use when traveling! In my last visit I scored the Philosophy eye cream and night treatment (which I'm in love with as well) and some Dior cleanser. Plus I earned a free gift with my reward points. Score!

F21 Ankle Skinnies with zippers

It's definitely hit or miss when it comes to purchasing cheap skinny jeans but I have been living in these lately. I've worn and washed them several times and still no loss of shape or stretch. I think the zippers add a lil' edge to them too! They are perfect with ballet flats or a pump!

Pumpkin Muffins

Two ingredients and that's it! A box of yellow cake mix and a 15 oz can of pumpkin. Mix and bake! Easy peasy and super yummy. I added mini chocolate chips to mine!
Which leads to...


I started doing Crossfit workouts last week and I'm loving it.
For someone who is not a fan of the typical gym routine this is perfect. Learn more about it here.

Football Season

I'm a sports fan all the way and football season is so exciting! It makes it feel a lil' more like Fall around here. Go Cards! I'm sad they don't make this with the Cardinals logo so I might just have to go with second best. Da Bears. Does this make me a traitor? oops.
