If this picture I took during our jeep tour in the 'Red Rocks' doesn't sum up my feelings on our honeymoon and Sedona in general, nothing will. I'll always be drawn to the south west and the desert for reasons unknown. 


There's something about a good black boho hat that makes you feel like a stone cold fox. It's the perfect accessory to a chill jeans and t-shirt look (see above), plus you feel worldly and mysterious walking around town in fashionable cap right? A girl in a hat, she's clearly not afraid to take fashion risk or stand out in a crowd (or maybe she just doesn't like the sun in her eyes...) but the point is, I've been craving a "black floppy" and / or a "panama" hat for a while now. So maybe this post is just me hoping and wishing my husband will stumble upon this blog and find the perfect Christmas gift... haha just kidding, I'm going to email him this link.

Shamelessly listening to this song on repeat, from The Killers new greatest hit's album Direct Hits.

Love, love, love natural elements and how great they look when mixed and matched with the other bohemian elements in our home. So, naturally (see what I did there) I really wanted to get my hands on a nice set of rock element inspired coasters (that and rings left on my bar cart from drinks aren't a good look...). I'd refer to myself as a Jason Adler lover, and I can't get over how beautiful these Natural and Gold Agate Coasters are and that they're the 'real deal', but the $125 is out of my newly wed starter apartment budget for coasters, so I went for the Target Threshold Faux Marble Coasters for more than $100 less (and they were on sale, can't beat a good sale!).  


Breathtaking view of the desert on our drive from Arizona to Nevada. Goosebumps and inspiration, that about sums it up.

Our amazing wedding photographer Courtney Ward  has been providing some pretty beautiful leaks of our wedding photos on her facebook page, and I'm dying to see the rest. Until then I'll be checking her page and blog like a crazy person. The whole day was such an amazing, loving, celebration of a blur - so I can't wait to see the big day from the cameras perspective!

She does such a good job of depicting a dreamy day - almost like she takes pictures of your emotions.. anyway, I'll stop with the sappy talk. I'll be back with more pictures in the upcoming weeks (cant wait!!).

Our trip to Sedona was AMAZING. Much needed relaxation after a year long of wedding planning (yes, I plan on continuing this post with no mention whatsoever that I haven't updated since May and that I am now married and pretty much didn't update this blog even a little bit since...).

Anyway - it may seem a little strange to some that we'd go for the dessert of Arizona over the beaches of Mexico, Jamaica, the Dominican Republic etc. but it was something we had never seen before and something we both wanted to experience; and honestly, we're both glad we did.

The views were BREATHTAKING, and for a girl who grew up only a short 30 minute drive from the beach it was definitely my definition of an escape from the mundane and everyday.

We did a pink jeep tour (which you should do - seriously go, right now, stop what you're doing and get on that fricken tour!). And we did wine tasting in Verde Valley.

I romanticize the desert and the south west so much with my tendency to buy and dote over aztec print decor, mexican blankets and of course, music straight from the jewel of the mojave dessert... I already miss starting the day with a hike and ending it with wine, but I definitely feel refreshed and ready to take on the world (was it the vortexes? maybe it was the vortexes...).
