Mckenna and I decided on the Royal Palms in Phoenix for our little girls staycay. There are so many beautiful resorts in the area, but we especially love Royal Palms because of how beautiful it is. It’s so charming and quaint, it literally feels like you’re in Europe! I honestly forget that I’m still in Arizona, and I really don’t live far from the resort.
A few tweaks to my daily routine has helped me find a little more inner peace. I used to make time for all sorts of daily rituals that make me happy like reading, meditating, yoga, taking a bath, or going for a walk. However, having a kid really does throw a wrench in things (a good wrench, but a wrench nonetheless). Most of your day is highly unpredictable, making organization feel like a foreign country. So something as simple as scheduling in a few moments to yourself may help you like it does me.
Feeding my family nutritious food is a no-brainer. I love teaching Nixon about the healthiest and freshest options when it comes to eating! Heritage Breed eggs by Happy Egg are some of the freshest eggs I've ever tasted! But equally important is the sustainability of our foods. Happy Egg thrives under natural conditions and come from several small family farms throughout Missouri and Arkansas.
T. Cook’s has been the go-to dining destination for more than two decades and Valley foodies have a whole new reason to visit now that Chef Alex Robinson has taken over as executive chef, bringing with him an exciting take on Mediterranean cuisine that combines his California sensibility with French techniques.
At 33, Chef Alex has worked in some of the country’s best five-star resort kitchens including The Ritz-Carlton Laguna Niguel, The Ritz-Carlton Chicago; Four Season Resort Jackson Hole, Four Seasons Hotel Denver, Four Seasons Hotel Boston and Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North.
Other than the services, this beautiful spa (who recently went through an insane renovation) offers a sauna, steam, hot tub and resting room and obviously the gorgeous rooftop pool I mentioned earlier. I AM OBSESSED with this spa. I am going to be doing a full roundup of Phoenix spas asap, but I can tell you right now, this one is up there!
Right down the road from my house is a very relaxing place nestled within Camelback Mountain called Sanctuary Resort. It is truly an experience of a higher level of luxury and glorious renewal… and no doubt lives up to its name, Sanctuary. This beautiful Scottsdale luxury resort begs to you let go and reconnect to yourself. Something I’ve been having trouble finding lately.

As you guys all know, eating healthy has always been a top priority for me. I want to nourish my body with only the best, but sometimes, I don’t have the time or energy to prepare these types of meals.
That’s why I love Sakara Life. Sakara Life is a meal delivery service that’s comprised of only the most quality and healthful foods.
When I had to make the tough decision to supplement with baby formula, I was in shock by the ingredients in what’s available to us. There aren’t a lot of options in the US, unfortunately.
After looking into every baby formula possible. I decided that German formulas were right for us. Specifically, the Hipp brand formula. (This post is not sponsored).
As you all probably know, I love a good wave to my hair so I often start my days off with my curling iron. Curling my hair has been a part of my daily routine for as long as I can remember. The only downside is the time it takes and the toll that heat can take on your hair.
Luckily, I have found the perfect tool to give me the waves I want, without the hassle and damage. The T3 SinglePass Wave Wand promises consistent temperature, one-pass styling, and flawless, frizz-free waves.
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.
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.
I love Game Day! I think it’s so fun to gather with friends and family and watch the game while eating all of our favorite snacks. I usually end up spending the entire day snacking, so I make it a priority to only pick up healthy snacks that won’t leave me feeling guilty. I love to stock up on fruit and veggies, guacamole, charcuterie plates, and one of my Game Day faves, Popchips!
I'm so excited to share these gift ideas with you guys! I love each of these gifts and I know your loved ones will love them too. These gifts are so universal, yet can be so personal when chosen specifically with someone in mind. I hope this guide can give you holiday shopping inspiration and lead you to that perfect gift!
