Last year I found this street style picture of Miranda Kerr and was determined to recreate her outfit. I finally did, with only a few minor changes – leopard pumps, not mules, a plain white tank, not striped, and a hat with straight hair. I loved Kerr’s black and white-striped tank, but I could not find one that fit me the way hers fit. I … Continue reading All White Miranda Kerr-Inspired Casual Wear
Anyone who knows anything about Arizona knows there are only two temperatures here – hot and a little less hot. I’d say cold, but it’s only cold to Native Arizonans… Lows of 65 degrees everywhere else in the U.S. is considered normal. So when it’s October and we’re still hitting 99 degrees, this is how we dress for fall. By the way, I’m fairly certain … Continue reading Dressing For Fall When It’s Still Hot
I’m not much of a “let’s celebrate every national food day”-type-of-girl, because quite frankly there’s way too many for me to remember. But s’mores are a yummy treat that Arizonans rarely get to eat because it’s almost never cold enough to have a fire to make them… So today, in honor of National S’mores Day, I give you “indoor s’mores!” If you want to give it … Continue reading More S’mores Please!
Writing this post, I know immediately my mom is going to scoff at the title. I was a slob as a child and even now during the school year my room gets messy and the dishes stack up. When it comes to summer vacation though, I have the time to relax and tidy up each day, so I do. I even find it somewhat therapeutic. The past … Continue reading Relationship Lesson: Confessions of a Clean Freak
In my experience, day trips usually go one of two ways: completely crappy or unbelievably amazing. It’s not common that it’s a mix, but this trip was. I know the photos don’t reflect that. You don’t typically take pictures when you’re grouchy and irritable. But taking a trip that started off mediocre, upgraded to nice, downgraded to hostile and then ended beautifully was even better than … Continue reading Day Trip to Slide Rock in Sedona
Wow! I truly cannot believe today marks the first year of Dash of Daisy. I can honestly say I wasn’t sure it was going to last. So much has happened, yet it still feels like yesterday when I was riding my bike in downtown Phoenix setting up a tripod and filming my own videos for the site. I knew the moment I received my first … Continue reading Happy Birthday Dash of Daisy!
As little girls, we grew up watching our moms put on heels, curl their hair and get dressed in their best work-woman suits each day. As a 20-year-old in college who is making her way into the professional working industry, I can’t tell you how happy it makes me to emulate by mother by sliding my feet into my pumps and throwing on a blazer … Continue reading Professional Plaid
Movie nights to me are like an American pastime. I grew up with a movie-obsessed family. Sitting ’round the couch with the family was a weekly tradition at my dad’s, and to this day it’s something I look back on very fondly. In my household, movie nights are sacred. It’s the best way to spend time with the ones you love without any hassle and … Continue reading The Ultimate Movie Night Guide
This past Sunday I returned home from good ol’ Viva Las Vegas. I was there for a few days doing several things – One, to see my boyfriend perform in the out-of-this-world SoulEscape dance performance. There’s a lot I want to say about that show, but it will take an entire post of its own. Second, I was there to watch my mini company compete … Continue reading Livin’ That Rodeo Lifestyle
I keep wanting to say summer’s in full swing, and it is, but more than that, summer vacation is practically half way through! I have been interning at both Arizona Foothills Magazine and Ford Robert Black Agency AZ. It has been so amazing that I plan to do a whole post dedicated to showing you all what a day in the life of an intern … Continue reading Business Casual
