loccitane cedrat men

Little know fact: I’m not the only product junkie in the family. My husband has quite the arsenal of skin and haircare products and has been known to steal my favorite shaving cream on more than one occasion. Today he is sharing some of his favorite products from L’Occitane. I’ve spent the last decade or so […]

colorful maxi can be used for materntiy

If I had to live in one silhouette for the rest of my life, I’d choose maxi dresses. They’re effortless, incredibly comfortable and typically flattering. Being petite, I look for fitted maxis that can easily be taken up or in if necessary. V-neck maxis are ideal if you’re on the shorter side because the cut […]

making lash extensions last

I used to consider eyelash extensions as a nice-to-have luxury.  To me, getting eyelash extensions was for women with enviable amounts of free time and a beauty budget to die for. But after getting a set of extensions in the beginning of the year (thanks to an esthetician at my gym who bartered lash extensions for […]

Leopard sandals

When there’s a dress I can count on wearing now (at 31 weeks!) and post-baby, I am all over it. This Leith Bodycon dress is just that. I might have to cave and get it in another color (I’m looking at you lavender!) Worn with sandals & a chambray, this is the quintessential summer-day maternity outfit.. and […]

outdoor wedding attire for the cold

My best friend from college got married a few weeks ago on a beautiful field in Telluride, CO. It was a lovely, serene outdoor wedding and Telluride was more stunning than I could have imagined. You know this to be true because I rarely have this many photos in one post. When you go to your college […]

unique baby shower gifts

Happy Friday! Before I shut the old lap top down for the weekend, I’m leaving you with some of my favorite small shopping haunts for little ones. These small, but mighty Instagram shops lure me time and time again with their unique, handmade kid’s pieces. If you don’t have little spawn to shop for, the cuteness overload […]

patriotic maternity outfit

Thank goodness it is almost the 4th of July so I can unabashedly wear one of my favorite color combos of all time: red and blue! If you grew up in Tucson in the 90’s, you probably love red and blue too. The Arizona Wildcats won the National Championship in ’97 and it seemed the […]

maternity workout style

I love to get my workouts in as often as my schedule allows. Being pregnant may change my workouts, but doesn’t mean that you’ll find me skipping the gym. If anything, I’m more dedicated to maintaining a maternity fitness routine than my regular regimen because there’s so much research out there boasting about the benefits working out […]

Old Spice

Since Father’s Day is quickly approaching, The Banker is here to talk about one great-smelling gift idea. Spoiler alert: there’s a giveaway involved! I’ve spent the last few years convinced I smell worse every year, so it makes sense my wife would give me a box full of body wash and deodorant for Father’s Day. […]

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

1. The skyline in Telluride was snowcapped and dreamy. It was a beautiful, albeit slightly chillier than a usual June wedding, but the view can’t be beat. 2. When I travel I am all about hydration. Drinking lots of water helps me fight dry skin that I tend to get post-flying. I recently began using […]
