Boho tea time at Lux

If I haven’t given off the vibe that I sort of live at coffee shops, then I’m clearly not doing something right! It’s a blogger/journalist’s second home. And the pumpkin tea cake and foamy chai paired with Lux’s rustic ambiance would make every fall frenzied girl and boy feel like they’re in heaven. There’s a lot […]

Desert Style, Desserts + Desoto Central Market

Living in downtown Phoenix is pretty dangerous, but not in a safety kind of way. More in an I’m-always-poor-because-of-the-amaaazing-food kind of way. And because of its proximity to my apartment, Desoto Central Market is one of the main contributors to my “problem.” Not only is there a variety of places to eat at Desoto, but […]

Jungle Fever

When I was in elementary school, I took a personality quiz that said I should be a park ranger for a career. So obviously that’s not happening and I’m certain my score was rigged, but this is me fulfilling that prophecy for a few hours with an ode to my favorite fall staples-for the desert […]

But First Coffee | Apartment Tour Part 3

Whoever said diamonds are a girl’s best friend clearly didn’t have the crazy coffee concoctions we have today (hello PSL and cotton candy frapp). Or work as long as we do each day. Coffee has become such a pop culture phenomena. There’s mugs, T-shirts and pillows with the phrase “But First Coffee” on it. So […]

Teen Vogue #BTSS Party Recap

Fashion 101 is now in session! What’s better than sweets, your best girls and free swag from Teen Vogue? Answer: nothing! Last Sunday I hosted my Teen Vogue Back-To-School Bash ( I was one of thirty readers chosen to receive a trunk of products) with my college friends to celebrate the start of my senior […]

Donut You Love My Kitchen? | Apartment Tour 2

Ready for an eggscellent round two of my apartment tour? Ready for too many puns to handle? There’s also other crazy cute things to look forward to this week. Donuts. Waffles. Goofiness. If you looked at last week’s bedroom post (I hope you did!), you saw my ice cream pj set from Kohl’s. Because I […]

First Apartment Tour 1 | Growing Up

A year from now, I could be in L.A., New York or I could be right where I am now-in my new apartment! Today marks the first day of senior year of college and I couldn’t think of a better post today than one that is a right of passage for most people-moving into your […]

Q&A With Breanna “Breazy” Skoon, PHX Fashion Week Emerging Designer Behind Lousy Rich

Summer’s almost gone and school starts back this month (senior year of college, btw!). That means Phoenix Fashion Week is just about two months away. And to celebrate, in less than two weeks, Shop Garment District, PHX Fashion Week’s preview fashion show event, is happening at The Hotel Palomar in Downtown Phoenix. So I sat […]

California Girl ft. Brandy Melville

Although the term is cliché now, I *actually* am a California girl. I was born in the San Diego area and lived there until I was about nine. While I’ve been away from the golden state for almost eleven years now, I still call it home and always look forward to visits, like the one […]

Daisy Craze

I think the best way to create new outfits is by reaching into the back of your closet. No money required and little effort. And that’s exactly what I did this week! I’ve had a couple crop-top halter and maxi skirt sets waiting to be worn for a couple years now. I received them during […]

Summer LBD + Songbird Coffee

What’s better than summer, a little black dress and local coffee? Nothing! I’ve been back home for almost a month after my study abroad excursion, which means it’s time to get back to regular fashion posts. But this week isn’t just any old #OOTD blog post. My photographer Lauren and I decided to amp up […]

London, Paris, Maybe Tokyo? My Study Abroad Experience

They say studying abroad during college is your best memory in college or the one you regret not doing. Although I have zero dollars left in my bank account, I can say Cronkite Euro 2015 was one hundred percent worth it. I traveled with my journalism school to Milan, Berlin and London for three weeks […]

Whimsical Wigwam Wear (Part 2)

Nothing says lazy summer days and sunshine like a long lace dress and the perfect floppy hat to roam around in an exotic flower field, or grass, in my case! This week I’m revealing the second outfit my new photographer and friend Lauren Brown photographed at the Wigwam resort in Litchfield Park. I can’t get […]

Wigwam Resort Wear Part 1 (Express Look)

When I graduated high school three years ago, I knew there would be one girl I’d actually stay in touch with during college. It may have taken three years to reconnect, but it felt like we were sitting (or goofing off in) in AP U.S. History or a National Honor Society meeting again when she […]

Express/ TVFU May Collection Collab

April showers bring May flowers and another unbelievable collab with Express! This time, yours truly will have a feature on Express.com for most of May. Top fashion bloggers and models like Jourdan Dunn and Kate Upton are usually the ones I see while I’m shopping on the brand’s website…now people get to see me! *someone […]
