BEAUTY// Got Sole?

I couldn't wait to share Sole Serum with you guys! Having a job that requires me to be on my feet all day can put some strain on my toes. Plus let's be real ladies...we have all had those nights when we are out with our friends dancing and our feet are hurting so bad you feel like taking your heels off in the club? I've been there. And yes, I have taken my shoes off to dance..not proud of it! HA! With Sole Serum you put a couple pumps on the problem areas on your feet, let it dry for 60 seconds and you are good to go again!

Outfit Post: Blush + Arrows

Hi everyone! I have been super MIA lately because Jeff and I got a little Frenchie last week, Stogie! He is the cutest thing ever and has been taking up all of my time {I love it!} So here is a little outfit post for you.
{his ears have popped since then, this was the first night we had him!}

This gorgeous top is from the shop I talked about acouple weeks ago, Pitaya. I wanted to mention that I did go to the location here in Arizona, but there are also locations all of over the US. Check out their website {here} to see a location near you! I also wanted to mention, my jeans are from the most amazing shop, t.madison. One of my friends from first grade started it and this shop is only for locals {sorry everyone} but you Arizona natives don't want to miss out on this one. She has everything from jewels, home decor to clothing. I will be posting more about her shop this week!

I also wanted to talk about one of my absolute favorite new pieces that I put in the guest room {although I will probably move it out into the family room because I love it so much! haha} It is this gorgeous arrow from Rustic Nest. Amiee and Matt Barro are an amazing hubby and wife duo that create all these beautiful pieces as well as custom orders. Go check out their shop {here} and follow them on Instagram @rusticnest :) I'm sure you will be seeing this arrow float around my house! I LOVE it!!

HOME// Guest Bedroom With Ace Hardware

Compensation was provided by Aces via Mode Media. All opinions and positions expressed here are my own and do not necessarily reflect those of Ace Hardware. 
I have always wanted the type of home that is a welcoming and relaxing place for family and friends. When Jeff and I bought our house I was thrilled to start from a blank slate and put our own unique twist into it. We started with the living room and kitchen and worked out from there. Our guest room was at the bottom of our list and was basically used as our "storage room". I hated how our front room was the dumping ground for all of our stuff, so we decided to completely transform it into a relaxing place that guests can stay.

We are loving cooler tones, so when I saw Sweet Retreat from Ace's Paint Studio I immediately fell in love. Our guest bedroom {the room that didn't make the cut for my closet room...ha!} is the smaller of the two guest bedrooms so this cool pop of color was just what it needed to provide a "sweet retreat" for our guests. 
When I said we started from a blank slate, I wasn't kidding. Here is a before picture of the guest bedroom. 
And here is the finished look!

 Since the paint was paint and primer in one, it took absolutely no time to paint this entire room. Take it from someone who gets tired after an hour of painting...it was so quick and the color was amazing!

Going to The Paint Studio at Ace is like going to your neighbor.

Outfit: FRI YAY

When I think of Fridays I think of relaxing, possibly some shopping, getting errands done and of course wearing extremely comfy clothes. Now that it's starting to get hot...sky's out thighs out! I brought out my cut offs and paired it with a flannel {of course} and my Riley Clay Designs tee. They have the softest tops and I of course love what they say as well. Check out their new shop for more adorable tops {here}, and have a wonderful weekend!

Outfit Post + TKE

Okay I am sharing two things with you today...first my look. I partnered up with Pitaya last week and let me tell you, I literally could picture myself wearing almost anything from their store. Completely easy to mix and match all their pieces, which is totally my thing. If you are a local {AZ} check out their shop on Mill Ave. Seriously the cutest location and everyone there was so sweet and helpful! Next up Top Knot Extensions...see below.

Finally I am sharing my weave with you guys...just kidding...but seriously. Top Knot Extensions not only have THE BEST branding {I'm kinda a sucker for their entire esthetic} but they also have AMAZING extensions. Duh! They are thick, soft and completely match my hair. Take it from someone who has basically tried almost every kind of extensions out there...these rock. ALSO I am wanting to let you guys know, tell your hair stylists about TKE. They have an awesome extension training program for all of their methods and a site specifically for stylists. Their hair extension methods include clip in, halos, tape-ins, I-tip, wefts + U-tips. Basically they have any type of hair extensions to fit your lifestyle. It's pretty awesome. PS if you are on Instagram, watch out because there will be a giveaway with them in the next few days.

Outfit Post: The Real Deal

I feel like bloggers have a rap for being these "perfect" people or displaying "perfect" lives on social media...well folks here is the real deal. I got up this morning at 6:45, brushed my hair, put this outfit on, went to work, got off around 4:15 and here I am. I feel like sometimes you {me included} may see bloggers or even just random people on Instagram and they look so "put together" all the time in their photos. Sadly that is just not real life, at least for me anyways. I have work, responsibilities and a husband that I devote my times to as well. Although I am lucky that I have a job that allows me to wear this to work! :) Hopefully this goes to show that nobody is perfect!

Outfit Post: Imperfectly Perfect

I know you guys have heard me talk about Mint Body before but seriously guys...if you are in AZ you need to check this place out. I have been training there for over a year now and I love it. Not only are the people there amazing, the atmosphere is positive and motivates me to constantly be better! This adorable top is from their boutique and I am kinda obsessed with the cut, fit and fabric. Softest thing ever! Also I want to give a BIG happy birthday to Angela {owner of Mint Body} + my amazing trainer  + friend!!! Have a wonderful day :) I love you!

Outfit Post: On the Go

I wore this look yesterday when I was out running errands. Lately my go-to has been skinny jeans, a tank and something tied around my waist. I like how bulky the army jacket is. It adds texture and a little something different to the look. I recently found these tankes at Target for around $10. I went up like 4 sizes because I wanted them baggy and a little longer. I believe the one I'm wearing is either a XL or XXL {seriously guys they are very short and more fitted if you don't go up a couple sizes}. Plus I love the look that it gives!
