hair model

This weekend I'm helping out a friend of mine that works at a salon here in Scottsdale. I am going to be his hair & makeup model in a little photoshoot!  Hopefully I don't look too embarrassing...

If only my shots could look like these from the black label...

Someday I will have that amazing red color on my head. My friend told me that because I was helping out with the shoot he could touch up my color to make it a little more red, but I declined because I am hoping to be blond again here in a few months...

no better reason

Found this "Thankful for Friends" party on Love and Lavender. The hostesses (Rosie of Simply Rosie Photography and Rosella) put together this party with flea market finds & homemade comfort foods.

Tissue paper pom poms and a burlap banner hung from the surrounding trees. 

I love the table & the photo booth backdrop - constructed out of old barn pieces - a constant obsession of mine.  Mismatched chairs and benches added to the vintage flea market feel...

Thrift store finds adorned the tables along with cinnamon sticks & berries tied with twine.

Yummy baked goods, french press coffee, cold milk & fruit punch were served.

I can't think of a better way to spend a little free time. & I get teased about my random thrift store & flea market purchases...this is why!!!

is it spring yet?

I would like to be here, now:

style icon

Didja guess?? The next style icon is the fashion editor at Australian Harper's Bazaar - Christine Centenera. I love her effortless, comfortable style & her fabulous, fabulous shoes. Look at each one of those photos. Every single shoe is amazing. The rest of her outfit usually looks relatively simple & comfy, with a few unexpected touches here & there (a gorgeously detailed leather jacket, a knotted dress, intricate leather pants). For me, doesn't get much better than that.

rica road trip

Following the horseback trip through the central highlands, I met up with friends to tour some of the Pacific side's more tourist-y towns. First stop was Tamarindo, a total gringo (white) surfer town where we dodged potholes, ate sushi & enjoyed our first surf sesh. We decided the best way to move on to our next destination would be to rent a car. We rented a small crossover & drove southeast to Montezuma, a total hippie town, & then Mal Pais where we met some great Aussies & stayed longer than planned. I am so glad we roadtripped...yet another thing that made our trip that much more special. It is also really fun to drive a decent off-road vehicle through small rivers & over bumps & potholes. :)
