Lizard Thicket (+a Giveaway!)


One of the super fun perks of being a blogger is getting to hear about and experience new shops and brands when they come to the Phoenix area. Lizard Thicket just opened in Dana Park in Mesa (at Val Vista and Southern). The vibe is a bit boho and I loved everything I tried on!



I came home with one of their LT Basics tops and I LOVE it. It's the perfect undershirt for some of my more sheer blouses.


I also got this gorgeous candle. It smells heavenly and the cut glass jar was just too pretty to pass up. I spent the morning moving it around my bathroom trying to find the perfect spot for it. My bathroom is too ugly for this candle, people.




See that brown envelope in the bottom corner? It's got a $25 Lizard Thicket gift card for one of YOU!

Not local? No worries- Lizard Thicket has a website with all the same good stuff as the store!

With Barb, the awesome owner. She's super interesting- she used to work in Silicon Valley (she threw the word "superconductors" into her presentation. As you do) and then decided she was ready for a change. She has spent the past 2 years trying to bring Lizard Thicket to Mesa and it finally happened!



Enter away below!

Special thanks to Lizard Thicket for providing the gift card and sponsoring this post! As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own and I love the chance to support a local small business owner like Barb.

Getting Older is Awesome

A self-indulgent walk down memory lane in honor of my 30th birthday with a daily picture from each year of my life and a lesson I've learned somewhere along the way.





I just really like getting older. Each year brings greater self confidence as I get more and more comfortable in my own skin. I don't mind my starter wrinkles or my random gray eyebrow hairs (none up top! ...yet). I know who I am and I like where my life is going. I can't complain.

Bring it on, 30s!

Save or Splurge

I'm leaving to the Bahamas in LESS THAN A WEEK (imagine me dancing around my kitchen right now) so I've been spending quite a lot of time swimsuit shopping both in store and online. Check out these beauties-



Love the vintage cut and floral print on each of them. I ESPECIALLY love the flattering ruching and supportive bust. There's a massive price difference between these two suits though- $144, to be exact.

Seafolly is an amazing brand and you basically can't go wrong there. But before you turn up your nose at the Wal Mart (yes, WAL MART) option, I feel like you should know that this particular swimsuit has gotten rave reviews for the past few years. I know several people personally who own and love this suit. It shows up on mom blogs as a big time winner for post-partum bodies. So IF you're in the market for a floral print vintage inspired swimsuit, just know that these are both totally valid options.


Amazon | $172
Wal Mart | $28

There is No Shame in Selfies

Unless you take 28 a day, including in every bathroom mirror you find. Then there's a little shame.
