Local Finds This Week

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

 

Fresh food, locally grown. The Blue Rooster Farmers Market is an adorable family owned farmers market in Peoria, AZ. They have fresh veggies, eggs right from the farm, homemade strawberry jam and local raw honey. The Blue Rooster has all the ingredients to create the best homemade salsa and provided a simple but perfect recipe. My husband loved it, and it was so good with the fresh ingredients! It was so fun to see a local family providing fresh veggies to the community- I can’t wait to visit them in the future during their hours on Friday and Saturday mornings.

 

Homemade salsa:

2 large Tomatoes

1/4 Onion

2 Jalapenos

1/3 cup Cilantro

2 Limes (Juices)

A pinch of salt

 

After hitting the farmers market in the morning, I was craving some good coffee and have been dying to try a coffee shop up the street- Cabin Coffee Café on 67th Avenue in Glendale. It was like stepping into a coffee shop in Montana in the middle in the desert. It is such a beautiful escape! I will be going to this coffee shop more often over the summer to escape the endless heat. I tried the Carmel Vanilla Coffee, it was amazing! As a coffee shop should be, Cabin Coffee had great drinks and a unique atmosphere that makes you want to keep coming back.

Spring into Style

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Spring has sprung in Arizona! I am so excited to show you all some of the outfits I have planned for this spring. But today, I just wanted to spend some time showing you some stores I love for spring clothes, and some outfits I am dying to get.

Modern Vintage Boutique

I am absolutely in love with this store! So many cute options, and this year’s spring collection did not disappoint. So far two of my favorites are the open shoulder floral dress and the off the shoulder light tan dress. Since I live in Arizona, I don’t get to wear my thigh high boots as often as I would like, so booties have become my new best friend. I love how well you can pair this floral dress with a cute pair of brown booties! It also has the criss cross across the chest that has been a growing staple in my closet. The off the shoulder light tan dress has a gorgeous spring color, light feel and is very flattering.

Closet Candy Boutique

You know what I love about Closet Candy Boutique?! Tax is included in the price and there is free shipping. Can you say SCORE! I love how simplistic they have made online shopping and they are so easy to work with. My favorite two styles from their shop right now vary a bit in what you would expect for spring. The maxi dress is just stunning and has such a flattering look. I love how airy it is, which will feel amazing as the weather warms up the next couple months. The criss cross sweater is not normally a “spring” outfit, but this year, the weather has changed every couple days, and I love how adorable and soft it is. This sweater has the perfect transition look for spring, and would pair well with all types of pants. I can’t wait to get my hands on this sweater!

I would highly recommend checking out these two amazing boutiques! They have a great collection. Happy Shopping!
