Simple Chunky Fishtail Braid//

This is my new favorite way to do a fishtail braid. It technically isn't even a braid at all {minus the top part}! So simple and perfect to dress up or dress down for any occasion :) Enjoy!

Outfit Post: Monsoon Days

Well it's official, monsoon season has hit AZ. Dust storms, wind, haboobs even rain! These were taken last night right before after one hit. I am wearing an adorable sundress from Pitaya. Guys, I seriously have the best time when I shop there. I talked with Liv + the sweet employees there for probably two hours+ after work on Saturday. They are seriously the best. If you guys are local, check out the Pitaya location on Mill Ave. Also if you aren't local or don't have time to make it down there, shop online and use Alyssa10 for 10% off your order :)

Outfit Post: Summertime Sadness

Okay I'm not really sad but I thought the title was fitting for the mood of these photos. I love this little spot. It's right around all these restaurants that Jeff and I love to go and they are all dog friendly! Here is what I am wearing.

BEAUTY// Summer Skin

I am SO excited to share this with you guys. About a year ago I heard of doTERRA oils. I had recently started using peppermint oil to help me with my headaches and I wanted to learn more about all the other oils and their uses. One of my best friends uses them daily and they have really helped her so much! Plus defusing them in your home smells amazing. Fast forward to Christmas and my mother in law gave me the doTERRA starter pack with peppermint, lemon + lavender. She also gave me oregano + digestzen. Now fast forward to a couple months ago I found @essentialoilsisters on Instagram and loved how they posted different mixtures of oils and exactly what they did. I am so excited that I am working with them and through that I get to share some of my favorite oils + uses with you guys!

This combination that I am sharing with you guys today is grapefruit + cypress. These two mixed together with fractionated coconut oil is an amazing remedy for smooth summer skin. It is said that these oils mixed together can reduce the appearance of cellulite + create smooth soft skin.




I seriously have been loving this skin remedy for summer! It not only makes your skin smooth + appear more smooth my skin gets SO dry during this time of year {thanks Arizona} so the oil is seriously soaked up right away. I apply this on my legs {you can really apply anywhere; arms, tummy etc.} right before bed. If you guys want to purchase make sure to contact Essential Oil Sisters on IG + their website to purchase from is {here}.

Outfit Post: Boho

When I think of a boho look I think of something knitted {crocheted}, flowy and of course a headband {mine is Monroe + Harlow}. I dressed this look up a little with these fun lace up sandals. Mine are about a year old and super cheap from Charlotte Russe but below are some of my current favorites :) I am also wearing my Top Knot Extensions! They are seriously amazing. If you have been wanting some extensions check them out!

Outfit Post: Team Kindness

Yesterday I finally upgraded my phone to the iPhone 6 plus! Now I can finally take pictures without worrying about getting my cracked lens in the photo...ha! I'm so excited :) After I went to my friends baby shower {I wore a pretty sundress} I wanted to change into something more casual and comfy. I opted for one of my Shop Hello Grace tees + my favorite ripped jeans. These bad boys are super old but I've linked some of my current favs down below for you guys to shop. I also linked a bunch of Street Level bags as well. I can't stop using them!

Beauty// Bloke Body

There is nothing like coming home after a long day and relaxing in a bath. Yesterday I tried this amazing Bloke Body coffee scrub and I am officially hooked. I have seen a lot about these coffee scrubs lately and I have been dying to give them a try. This specific Bloke scrub is the coffee + sweet orange. I took a tiny, scrubbed it around, let it sit for about 5 minutes and after washing it off, it left me with incredibly soft skin. Considering one of my guilty pleasures is taking a bath every day, I love finding amazing products like this that I can pamper my skin with. For more about Bloke and all of their other amazing products check out their website {here} and follow them on Instagram @blokebody
