Ever since giving birth, finding both chic and flexible clothing to allow me to breastfeed at any time has been SO important. Motherhood Maternity has definitely been my go-to lately because they offer the best of both worlds. They have everything from maternity to nursing pieces and everything is always really comfortable and cute.
Working out on vacation is not for everyone. I totally get that, but for those who like to get their sweat in different time zones you know how hard it can be to get that perfect sesh in. Hotel gyms are tight, never have all of the right equipment, and honestly they smell weird. Personally I am a studio addict and have probably been to 90% of them on the west coast alone, ya know Soul Cycle for life.
Jet lag… we’ve all had it and we all know how miserable it can be. Whether it is a two hour difference to your neighboring state or nine hours away in the city of love. These time differences can really take a toll on your body and make or break your travel experience.
Over my years of jet lag, lack of energy, and coast to coast trips, I have learned the in’s and the out’s of making the most of my time. Energy is key, it is literally what makes the world go round in so many aspects of life. So I thought i would share how I keep my energy level at its best during my travels.
Our last Bumble event at The Bar Method was so fun! I absolutely love whenever I get the chance to mix two of my favorite things: fitness and networking. Our BumbleBFF events are always a blast but this one was extra amazing because we got to partner with one of my favorite bar studios, The Bar Method.
Have you ever been in a frantic state running semi late but kind of on time for your flight? And then when you are going to check your bag the scale reads ten pounds over? But it’s like you need all three lotions, the extra four outfits, and that magic bullet blender for your morning smoothie ritual. So there you are on the “God knows what has been on here” airport floor trying to do a bag shuffle and make it work, all while trying to catch your flight in time.
The day we have all been waiting for is finally HERE. My home redesign has been a long time in the making, but it has been well worth it! The process of a home redesign is not an easy one, but thankfully I had The LifeStyled Company on my side to help things run smoothly. They truly made all of my home design dreams come true.
The days are getting brighter and the rays are getting stronger in most places this Summer. Ahhhh the sun, the brightest and biggest star, that delivers so many benefits to us. Think of it as an exclusive club (that everyone is invited to) and you don’t have to pay a cent. Now with most club memberships you have advantages just for being a part of the team. The sun is no different, Vitamin D, immune support, brain health, aides in the decreasing of asthma, a natural pain killer, a mood booster, these are just a few sun perks one can gain.
Happy July everyone! I am so excited that 4th of July is this week, I love gathering with friends and getting a little extra patriotic to celebrate America. Whether you’re spending 4th of July at home, a family BBQ or on the boat with friends, it’s always fun to put together the perfect 4th of July outfit.
I made a lot of mistakes shopping in early pregnancy. I thought I'd go ahead and pick up some basic maternity pieces because I would eventually need them anyway. Plus, I felt uncomfortable from day one. Mostly because you're bloated into your second trimester. I didn't realized that eventually my whole body would grow, not just my belly. So buying pieces in my pre-pregnancy size that had a place for my belly actually wouldn't cut it.
This is extremely unfortunate and unprecedented, but Bumble and I will need to cancel the Bumble BFF event planned for tomorrow at Art of Ice Cream. Bumble and I were so excited to host you, and this was going to be the biggest event that we have hosted in Phoenix since we started planning networking events - over 160 of you RSVP'ed for this event! I know that this cancellation is coming at the last minute and we are just as surprised as you probably are, therefore I felt you were all owed a short explanation.
Art of Ice Cream approached me and my team about hosting an event for Bumble in April, and since then we have been in constant communication with the team at Art of Ice Cream. The event, like all of our Bumble events, was designed to be a mutually beneficial partnership between Bumble and a premiere local business and clearly communicated as such to Art of Ice Cream. The idea is to bring awareness to both the local business and Bumble, allowing many of you to network and take full advantage of what we collectively bring together - a perfect match! Disappointingly, Art of Ice Cream notified me today (the day before the event) that they were no longer able to host our event...unless we paid them an outrageous event fee. The first we are hearing of this. Not only were we disappointed about the fee, but we were upset about the timing of this news, which left us with no time to find another partner.
We understand many of you had made plans to attend tomorrow and were probably just as excited as we were. We hope that you will continue to support Bumble and consider attending any and all of our future events here in Phoenix, and we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience. And we will be making this up event up to you in the very near future.
Our latest Bumble event took place at our local barre3 where we got to celebrate the launch of barre3 Anywhere. Barre3 Anywhere is a new and FREE 28-day program that consists of 10-minute do anywhere daily workouts, weekly equipment-free workout plans, live streaming workout sessions, giveaways and more!
As usual, I’ve been pretty busy lately. My days are maxed out with work and appointments --- being an expecting mom can be EXHAUSTING to say the least. My due date is right around the corner and of course Phoenix is heating up v. quickly… which just makes the days tougher. I have definitely been in desperate need of a break and some relaxation and I knew there were some other mom’s in my line of business who needed that too, so my latest Bumble event could not have come at a better time.
Hey everyone! If you’ve been following along on social media, you probably know that we are in the middle of redesigning our home. This is something I’ve been so excited about lately and it’s been really fun getting to pick out new home decor. In my opinion, wall art makes such a statement in any home design so shopping around for the perfect art has definitely been a priority. Thankfully, we have been lucky enough to partner with Desenio on the redecorating of our walls.
As many of you may know, my last baby shower has now come and gone. It has been so fun getting to celebrate the upcoming arrival of our little girl with friends and family. Our last baby shower took place here in Phoenix and it was hosted by my sweet friends: Jess, McKenna and Bethany. They put together the best day. We had the yummiest food, the cutest drinks and my entire Phoenix fam was there to help me celebrate!
Now that I’m getting closer and closer to my due date, it’s becoming more difficult to find clothes that are both cute and comfortable. Thankfully, I have recently found that Macy’s has lots of maternity options in the brands that I love. I have found so many fashion forward pieces that fit my current lifestyle and allow me to feel both comfortable and confident all day.
One of the things I love most about Bumble is that they are all about helping people make connections. Whether you’re looking for a date, a friend or a business partner, Bumble has your back because they understand how important making real life connections really is. I also love that Bumble encourages getting involved in your community and giving back. This is why I was so excited to bring Bumble along to the Pearce Family Foundation, 4th annual Runway of Hope where we got to mingle for a good cause.
We are getting so close to the due date of our little one, so just last week the time had finally come for us to go on our Babymoon! The Ritz-Carlton Bacara in Santa Barbara treated us to the sweetest little weekend to celebrate our little girl’s upcoming arrival.
