Greetings from the road from Utah to Arizona. Over the weekend I came down to Utah to pick up my parents to drive back with me to Arizona for Todd's graduation. I originally came to get my hair done, but it worked out that it would be around the time of Todd's graduation so my parents could ride with me back to Arizona. My parents have been divorced since I was one so this will be our first family road trip. Weird......

Speaking of graduation I am still stuck on what to wear. Last week I posted a picture on Instagram of this dress here, and I couldn't get it tailored in time. I seriously was so sad because I knew it would be perfect for the occasion. The second runner up is the blue maxi I posted last week here, and the third runner up is this outfit. What do you guys think?

Meet My Cohost
Meet my lovely cohost Alex from Adored by Alex. This beautiful Texan blogger has a serious eye for fashion, and hopefully I'll get to meet her when I move down in two weeks. Whenever I look at her Instagram account I get major color envy, and you all know how I love my color ;) Recently she did a post here, where I fell in love with her outfit. That OTS top screams Jessica, and who knows maybe it ended up in my shopping cart ;)
Featured Bloggers of the Week
The stunning Laura from Walking in Memphis in High Heels makes her way onto the features list because a) she looks adorable in her active gear, and b) can you believe that this woman had a baby?! Mommy goals right there. Umm can we please talk about her gorgeous locks though?!!! Divine!

Our next feature os Kandja from Pretty Weird Bombshell because.... well....look at those legs! Those legs need a feature of their own lol ;)

Graduation Banquet

Dress: Vici Collection / Bag: WHBM c/o / Necklace: Brielle Designs c/o / Shoes: Marc Fischer / Lips: Pucker and Pout - Roseberry
If you followed my insta story last week then you might have seen a sneak peek at this dress. Last Thursday was Todd's dental school graduation banquet, and this was the dress I decided to wear for it.   The night was so fun because we got to spend it with the people that have become our second family here in Arizona. As the night was wrapping up they decided to play a slide show that highlighted the four years of dental school. I couldn't help but to get all choked up watching the videos and pictures of all the students with their families. Dental school was such a sacrifice for the families and students because of all the time and dedication it requires. Dental school was also a blessing because the students got to attend an amazing program, and we got to connect with people that we will know for the rest of our lives. I'm still in disbelief that graduation day is next week, and that Todd will finally become Dr. Edmunds. Pinch me... it doesn't even feel real!

Since I am a Pure Barre instructor activewear has become a large part of my weekly wardrobe. I work out 5-6x a week, and if you catch me on the street the majority of the time you'll see me in a look similar to above. With being an entrepreneur I am always on the go, and go straight from the gym or barre to running my work errands for the day. Since my days are jam packed with work I don't have much time to change so athleisure has become my saving grace. Thank heavens that wearing leggings in public has become a public norm ;) This week I wanted to round up my favorite workout looks from this year to give more inspiration for this weeks post. 
Since athleisure is one of my favorite things in the world, I can't wait to see the looks you have prepped for me this week :)

I absolutely loved all of your guys bell sleeved posts last week, and I was honestly inspired. It was a tough call, but here are the featured bloggers of the week!

April from April was Here is looking stunning in this rose bell sleeved number. This gorgeous blogger features all the biggest spring trends in one outfit: white denim, florals, and bell sleeves. Gorgeous!!! You know I'll be buying that blouse ;)

The Edmunds are officially 3 weeks away from moving to Dallas! For the past week Todd and I have been digging away at our apartment, and have been trying to box away our life for the move. It feels so good to do some spring cleaning, and getting rid of so many clothes that I haven't worn in years. Whenever Todd see's me fill up bags of old clothes he tries to convince me to sell them vs donate them. Personally I would rather donate clothes vs putting in tons of effort into selling them online. This girl definitely doesn't have time for that. After narrowing down the wardrobe that will be coming with me to Texas I then moved onto taking down my favorite space in our place. My office. 

The office has become my number one space that I work in, and has become my little creative haven. I might have shed a tear after taking down my gallery wall that was filled with my favorite styled shoots. Four years of memories has filled our 1200 square foot apartment, and will be deeply missed.

Wellness Wednesday - My Favorite Products for Healthy Skin


For todays "Wellness Wednesday" we are going to switch gears from talking about diet to talking about taking care of your skin. As I have aged I have gone through countless products to find things that are good for my skin, and that will be good for my adult acne. Here are some newbies and oldies that are currently in my makeup bag. Now lets talk about these products, and their benefits shall we??


Lipsense Lip Balm
Incase you haven't caught on now, but currently I started to sell Senegence products more commonly known as the company that sells Lipsense - the lipstick that lasts 4-18 hours. With wearing Lipsense your color will actually last longer the more you wear it because your lips go through an exfoliation period. On the days when I am feeling lazy I use my Lipsense lip balm instead because it doesn't contain wax, and wax build up is partly why Lipsense won't last as long. This balm is also amazing because it contains the Sene Complex which contains restorative and anti aging benefits. The moisture rich botanical helps hydrate the lips leaving you lips feeling unbelievably soft. You can purchase this product directly from me for $20.


Ole Henriksen African Tea Cleanser
Boy, oh boy, I freaking love this cleanser!!!! I have been using this cleanser for about 2 years now, and I am seriously obsessed! I became in love with Ole Henriksen after using their Vitman Plus lotion (so sad its now discontinued), and from there I discovered this cleanser. What I love about this cleanser is that it's A) gentle on my skin, B) non drying, C) offers anti aging benefits, and D) doesn't make me break out. This product also anti inflammatory properties which helps sooth zits during a break out. I seriously can't say a bad thing about this cleanser because its soon amazing!!! The ingredients that make this product my ride or die is that its infused with antioxidant rich African tea, and Ester C. 


Ole Henriksen Mattifying Creme
A couple months ago my all time favorite Ole Henriksen moisturizer Vitamin plus got discontinued. When I went to Sephora to replace my VP I had no idea what product could compare. After seeking the advice of one of the Sephoras specialist they told me that this mattifying creme would give me similar benefits. This creme is almost identical to the old one I used to use, and I love it!!!! The biggest reason why I love this moisturizer is that its hydrating, but not greasy. I can wear this under my makeup, and it absorbs so much into my skin that it won't make my foundation move. The health benefits for the skin include reducing pore appearance, improves skin quality, contains vitamins - A C D E, calms the skin, balances the skin, reduces oil, and hydrates the skin. 


Origins Clear Improvement Mask
I have used this mask for a couple years now, and it has become part of my weekly routine. I will get blackheads around my nose, and this mask works like a charm to remove the blackheads out of my pores. This product will give you the most bang for your buck. During times when I am in a middle of the break out I will use this mask, and it will clear my skin without leaving it dry. 


Origins GinZing
Now this is a sample that I got from my Sephora play box, and I am in love!!! This product is killer for brightening the eyes, and getting rid of dark circles. Ever since using this product I feel like the skin under my eyes have become more bright in one month!!! Now thats ah-mazing! The product lightens and brightens with it's key ingredients of coffee beans, Panax ginseng, and Magnolia Extract. 


Senegence Color Correcting Tinted Moisturizer 
With being a Senegence distributor I get to try out lots of products since I can get a discount on them. My fellow sene friends raved about the CCT, and so naturally I tried it to see what the hype was all about. OH-EM-GEE YOU NEED!!! No joke. I freaking love this product, and anyone who tries it has loved it. This product is absolutely amazing because it's the perfect foundation replacement for summer. There is nothing I hate more than my foundation melting off me during the summer because of the heat. The CTT is super light weight, and won't move by the time your day ends. This product is not only long lasting, but is good for your skin! It contains a mechanical shield which is the equivalent of SPF, contains the anti aging Sene Complex, reduces free radicals which cause surface level blemishes, decreases sun/age spots, and counteracts redness. The CTT offers sheer to medium coverage depending on how you apply it. I get medium coverage from it by using a damp beauty blender. Another crazy thing about this product is that it's color correcting meaning it will adapt to three shades darker or lighter. That alone is amazing because you won't have to worry about buying another color when your skin starts to get tan with summer since the color will adapt! This product you can purchase from me for $45, and it's amazing!

Vitamin Nectar Face Mask
Now this was another sample that I received form my Sephora play box, and intend to buy more once I use up my sample all up. After a month of using this product I feel like my skin has become more bright, and even! Since this product contains 50% of crushed citrus it can improve skin radiance up to 30% after just one use. Yep....this is for sure going to be a bathroom staple.

You've heard me list my favs, now tell me yours!

Fashion Elite with J Petite Linkup - Bell Sleeves

Photography: Jamee Edwards
Top: WHBM (ON SALE! Similar here that comes in pink and white) / Skirt: J.Crew (old similar here and here) / Clutch: WHBM c/o / Shoes: WHBM c/o / Lips: Pucker & Pout - Apple Cider

Bell sleeves, bell sleeves, oh how I love you so! 

This outfit matches my current Spring style to the "T" with the feminine pink details. Yesterday I was doing a shoot with Jamee where we shot a lot more ruffles and bell sleeves. She turns to me, and says "Wow you really do love the bell sleeves." I do, yes I DO!! I was explaining to her that whenever a new trend comes out that it takes me a while to fall in love with the trend. When I first saw bell sleeves I actually hated them, and thought that they would make me look like a wizard.  Not hating on the wizards because this girl definitely loves herself some Harry Potter. 

Another reason why I was hesitant to get into bell sleeves was because I was afraid that the volume of the sleeves would compete with the volume of my hair, and that combination together would be too much for my petite body. Ohhhhh how I was wrong.....

Since I was seeing bell sleeves everywhere I decided to give them a go, and purchase this top from the WHBM petite line. When the package arrived on my door step I immediately became obsessed, and loved the feminine charm of the bell sleeves. If you haven't given this trend a go yet I highly recommend you do!
