A Drool Worthy Kitchen

Kitchens are usually the heart of any home and the place where all entertaining, gatherings, and meals commence. I know I'm not alone, browsing the internet and Pinterest and falling in love with all sorts of drool worthy kitchens. Well tonight, this one spoke to me especially so. I am especially swooning over the simple yet elegant silver bar stools! I instantly filed this image away as inspiration for when I finally own my own home some day... until then, pretty pictures will have to suffice!

Fall Is In The Air

Although Arizona's Fall season hasn't officially started (Yes, we are still near the 100's practically daily - yuck!) but my mind is all Fall right now. I cannot wait for the most beautiful time of the year to break - mostly so I can start purchasing some items off of my fall wish list. What is on your radar?

Jen Ramos Home Snapshots

Who isn't a fan of Miss Jen Ramos? I swear every time I visit her blog I leave with a TON of inspiration, she truly has something special. Naturally, her sense of style, creativity, and class is portrayed throughout her home decor. Simple black and white with pops of vibrant accessories and books is just my taste. Happy Thursday!

This Kiss

A kiss can be the most glamourous and the most glorious type of behavior simply depending on the meaning behind each pair of lips. Kisses bring joy, and joy almost always transcends over fear and heartache. So blow a kiss today, smooch your mom and dad and, of course, don't forget to pucker up for your honey.XO

Things Have a Way of Working Out

Last week was just one of those weeks. You know, those weeks where its almost comical how true all the cliche quotes about "bad news coming in threes" and "when it rains it pours" are in relation to your life at the given moment. It's crazy how we are all just passengers on this crazy journey of life. Filled with ups and downs, twists and turns and afterward how each bad situation ends up working out. Here's to hoping that day comes much sooner than later. Until then I pledge remain positive and simply keep on keepin' on. After all, there's outfits to be worn, snapshots to take, and exciting things on the horizon.

Forever Remembered

I will take this day to step back from talking about frivolous things. No materialistic wants and needs, today I will simply just be. I will take this day, at this very moment, to remember everything I am thankful for in this world. To remember the heros who were so brave on that tragic day and of course remember those who's lives were lost 11 years ago. I will say cheers to our country and put aside any differences I have no matter right or wrong.

Today... with a heavy heart I will celebrate life, love, and freedom.

FNO 2012

Thursday marked quite the evening for the fashion scene. Fashionistas and fanatics alike joined together in honor and celebration of Fashion's Night Out 2012. Although we are no NYC or LA, Scottsdale's FNO scene was quite the hit. Loads of style-obsessed individuals flocked to Nieman Marcus at Scottsdale Fashion Square, which was certainly the center of all the Thursday night action. A night full of champagne, drool worthy runway fashion, and plenty of goodies were in order. Not to mention a killer after party at the Scottsdale Saguaro Hotel. I was lucky to attend with two of my favorite local bloggers Katie from Running on Happiness and Ashley from Golden Divine.

See some of my snapshots below. Did you participate in FNO? xo

A Gift For Me: Sunday Snapshot

All the lovely gentleman (and hey, ladies too) were heard describing this weekend "As Great as Christmas Morning." Have no idea what I'm talking about? Football is back people and it seems as though the world is rejoicing with the return of the #1 American game. A present to all those who eat sleep and breath football.

This weekend...I rejoiced with a little bit of Michael Kors. A treat to know, in honor of the great return of fall football!
