What an amazing weekend it has been! While my time here in Utah has been short it has been packed. When Django and I pulled up to Salt Lake we spent the night hanging out with my dad, and unloading all of my winter stuff that was pointless to have in Arizona. Who needs wool coats when the temperature doesn't get below 40 degrees? Hello more closet space....

Friday was laid back and spent the morning teaching at Pure Barre draper, and getting my hair done. Bria worked some magic on my hair, and battled my hair as she combed out my rats nest....
 Saturday was filled with shooting in the mountains with my cousin, eating breakfast with my sister and brother in law at my favorite diner "Ruth's Diner" (highly recommend because they have an amazing patio), and attending my dear friends wedding. The wedding was absolutely gorgeous, and my friend Amy looked like a dream! I attended the wedding with all my girls from Pure Barre who are essentially my second family. For any of those who follow me on Instagram saw me get a little crazy on the dance floor.   

While my trip to Utah has been amazing, I'm ready to go back home to see Todd who I haven't seen in two weeks! Next time you see me I'll be in AZ. Peeeeeeace out Ut-ah..

If you know me then you know I love a good print! I love expressing my individuality through fashion, and there's nothing that screams "Jess" quite like a bold colorful print. What 
I love most about this print is that it reminds me of an endless summer. 

This summer has been such an adventure! I finally got my husband back since he entered his third year of dental school (no more being a school widow), got to do some amazing styled shoots, I was apart of the styling team for three shoots for a local designer, I went to Sedona, became a full time PB teacher, Django turned two, and the list goes on and on. This summer has been so busy for me and my blog, and is going to be crazy packed this fall! Can't wait to show you some of my projects I've been working on for this fall. Stay tuned.....

Thanks for stopping by xoxo

Dressing For Fall While Still Enjoying Summer

August is coming to an end, which means Fall is just around the corner. While the weather may start cooling down at the end of the month, the temps are going to still be the 100+ here in Arizona. Boo.......

Fall is by far my favorite season to shop because of all the layering, hats, jackets, and boots! The key to dressing for fall but living in summer temps is the keep everything light and airy. I love this outfit so much because all the colors give that fall feel, but is extremely light weight. This skirt is amazing because the side slits keeps me cool, and also makes the movement in the skirt amazing. This outfit is for sure coming with me on my trip to Utah at the end of the week.

I've been so giddy all month to go to Utah and enjoy weather that is 20 degrees cooler (hopefully). I've got a crazy busy week before I take my little Django and I on our 12 hour drive back to Salt Lake. I still have to manage to clean my house (this has been a struggle for the past week....#addproblems), teach, pack, finish styling a photoshoot, pick up my alterations, send out massive amounts of emails, and the list goes on and on. 

Congrats to Natalie Virden and Ashley Perez for winning the Arden rompers!

Wellness Wednesday: Cha-Cha-Cha-Chia

Have you ever entered into a Whole Foods, and find yourself scratching your head asking "What the freak is Chia...or is it pronounced ch-i-a or ch-ee-a?" To clarify any prononciation errors it's ch-ee-a. Chia seeds have become my latest food obsession. With working so close to a Whole Foods now that the new North Scottsdale Pure Barre location has opened, I been consistently going there for lunch (We don't tell Todd that te-he). Since frequenting Whole Foods I have noticed so many drinks have Chia seeds in them. Naturally I became curious, and started researching the health benefits. Time to whip out my monocle, and investigate this so called healthy Chia seed. After searching the internet I became fascinated with all the health benefits your get from this seed. Did you know that Chia seeds are:

High in antioxidants, omega -3 fatty acids, and fiber

Helps you eat less

Helps regulate blood sugar

Is a complete protein

Help regulate bowel movements

Chia seeds are so easy to incorporate into your diet whether that be using them to bake with, blending them in a smoothie, salad toppers, or even mixing them into your yogurt. 

Here is a recipe for a paleo strawberry chia seed lemondade. 

What you will need: 
  • Strawberries
  • 2 lemons
  • 3 tbs Chia seeds
  • 1-2 tbs raw honey
  • 16 oz water
  • Optional: I like to add 5 mint leaves
  1. In a blender mix strawberries, lemon juice, honey, and water together. 
  2. After blending strain the pulp.
  3. Place in a mason jar, and add the seeds.
  4. Shake shake shake it up (got the Taylor Swift song stuck in my head).
  5. Refrigerate for 2 hours, and shake before consuming

Enjoy!
