4 Style Trends To Keep You Cool

4 Style Trends To Keep You Cool

Okay, I know I have lived in Arizona for a few years now and should be used to the extreme temps. But no. They are still rising and because of this, the outfit options aren't great. I can’t layer in the summer or ever throw on any type of cardigan or jacket to complete a look. 

Since moving here I have tried so many things to look cute and keep cool & comfortable during the summer. While some of my efforts were not successful I am here to tell you about the ones that were. The pieces I stick to no matter what because I know they won’t let me down when the temps keep going up.

Wine With A View | Travel Guide

As I was sipping on my glass of sauvignon blanc watching the waves crash against the sandy beach and the sun set into the pinky orange sky, all three of my babes by my side,  I couldn’t help but think nothing is better than this. Traveling has always been my strong suit, I thrive in new cities, new restaurants, new people all around me. Which also got me thinking that I have had my daily glass of vino in so many amazing places that I must share!

When I had to leave my green-juice-filled, walks on the beach, endless restaurant options happy state of mind, to come to the desert, I was worried about many things. But one of my main concerns was what the hell I am I going to eat in ARIZONA….

Fast forward three years later and I can personally vouch for this dry, unfairly hot, desert town. There are some great spots all over the valley that keep me full, happy, and healthy. There are so many great options that fill my body, soul, and Instagram feed.

Have Some Wine | Here's The Benefits

Two of my favorite things, wine and health benefits. I like when things are nutritious. Although I think I would still guzzle down some fermented grapes on a regular basis if the only thing it did was taste amazing. But after some thorough research I am happy to announce I get so much more done just by sipping away at the glass.

Beach Getaway | What To Do + What To Pack

Beach getaways will always be one of my favorite things. Even more so now that I have my very own little tribe to take along with me. I love when we all get to get away together, it's like an escape from all reality.

Fortunately our move to the middle of the desert wasn’t too far away for a trip to the beach. We can pack our bags and be soaking up the sun in five quick hours.

Finding Peace of Mind With Your Newborn | Featuring Owlet

While there have been so many changes in my life over the past year, something that has been a definite constant is making sure that Nixon is healthy. When I was pregnant, so much time and effort went into growing my baby and ensuring I was doing everything in my power to keep her healthy and strong. Now that Nixon is here, my priority is still to make sure that I’m doing everything possible to keep her safe.

Sometimes it’s hard to know how babies are feeling, but the Owlet Smart Sock has really given me peace of mind.

On The Cleaner Side | Products I Used While Pregnant

On The Cleaner Side | Products I Used While Pregnant

I've always tried to to err on the side of caution when it comes to beauty products, food and my overall health. I'm not exactly crunchy, but I do my homework when it comes to my health. I make decisions based on the information available and my own intuition. When I found out I was pregnant, I knew a couple of things I would be dropping right away. I'm ok with a chemical here or there, this is the real world and eventually, my baby will come into contact with said "toxins" at some point. But multiple toxins that are proven to cause harmful effects, used daily in my products, I have a problem with. 

Here's a list of the products I did use while growing a baby! Always do your own homework and of course, chat with your doctor before trying something new.

Tastier Healthier H20 Hacks

The other day I was drinking the last of my 128 ounces of water, and it got me thinking about how many people don't drink as much water as they should. Why is that? Personally, I love getting every last drop in. It keeps my day running smoothly, skin plump, digestion system on track, and I don’t mind the taste at all. But I do know a lot of people who drink other things such as soda, juice, energy drinks, etc. because they all taste better than water.
