Scottsdale Girls Weekend at The Scott Resort & Spa

A few weeks ago we headed to Scottsdale for a girls/sisters weekend! It was a perfect place to go for a girls trip. First, the flight from Denver was super quick & easy, second the weather was so nice (much warmer than Colorado) and the city is super convenient with a ton of beautiful hotels & delicious restaurants. After talking to friends aka our friend Des (if you don’t follow her blog you should, click here) & doing some research on hotels, we decided to stay at The Scott Resort & Spa! We were so thrilled with our decision, the hotel is so so cute y’all. And when I say cute I mean every single detail is just so on point. We also tend to like boutique hotels more than huge resorts, and The Scott fell right into that for us. It was quaint & perfect. And bonus the food & drinks were so so GOOD!! Also, they provide a driver to take you anywhere within 3 miles of the resort, which was very convenient since we mostly ate & shopped in Old Town Scottsdale so we didn’t have to worry about transportation! Take a look a the pics below and hopefully you can get an idea of how chic this hotel is, I really want to steal some of their style design for my own house. Another hotel we visited for the spa was The Omni Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Motelucia, gorgeous hotel & amazing spa. It is […]

Guest Blogger Pediatric Occupational Therapist, Meghan Corridan- Christmas toys

Meet Meghan…. As a pediatric occupational therapist, finding a good toy is like winning the lottery. I love nothing more than finding a toy or game that kids not only love to play with but that help with the development of a variety of skills. Since the occupation of a child is to play, it’s my job to find toys that may possibly motivate them to learn at the same time.  Another really important thing I look for in products is that they encourage kids to be creative and to use their imagination as much as possible.  I am so excited to share some of my favorite items that made my 2018 Holiday Gift Guide. If you want more ideas, be sure to follow my blog! Rainbow Family Peg Doll Sorter-this is something I bought on a whim a few months ago and have been pleasantly surprised at how much use they have gotten at work. It is a simple toy with endless possibilities. The set consists of 6 rainbow colored boxes which house 4 matching peg dolls in 4 sizes. I have used this to work on skills such as color identification, sorting and matching but I have been so excited to see how the kids all have their own way of playing and interacting with the dolls. Some kids have organized their sorting all of one color at a time and placing them in the box in size order which shows some pretty awesome executive functioning skills. Magna-Tiles-a long […]

Budget Friendly Fall Home Decor

We are really getting into the fall spirit this year & what better way to do it then add a few fall throw pillows and some pumpkins around the house. Decorating for a season has always been somewhat overwhelming to us, not to mention expensive. But, everything below was a great deal and adds a little fall fun to the house. From the throw pillows at target (good news these are even more on sale right now), to the decorations from hobby lobby (50% off) & to the bullseye section at target, you can decorate and get that fall feel for an affordable price. Not one piece was more than $25 (minus the fur pillow which are a few years old from Pottery Barn)!!! We linked everything below, please feel to email us or DM us on insta if you have any questions. Happy Fall y’all! Here are all the links of the pieces in the pics below 🙂 Chambray Pillow Woven Plaid Pillow  Hand Quilted velvet lumbar Pillow in Gold Hand Quilted velvet lumbar Pillow in Berry  Give Thanks Pillow  Chunky Woven Cream Pillow Chunky Knit Throw in Navy Chunky Knit Throw in Gold Metallic Pumpkins in family room (next to sunflowers) Velvet Pumkin from Hobby Lobby (can’t find online) Cotton Rings (couldn’t find online, check your local hobby lobby) Leaves & tiny Pumpkins & Gourds (similar) All signs, green/white pumpkins & the tiny leaf & pumpkin plates are from Bullseye (can’t find them online, check your local target […]

Quick Nordstrom B.P. Try On

I ran into Nordstrom yesterday with my mom and Caroline because my mom had a return to do and within 5mins I found a handful of super cute fall items that I need slash want from B.P.! Therefore I decided to quickly pop them on and do a little try on for you all! Caroline was sprinting around & hiding in-between racks so I am sure I could have even found more amazing pieces but this was what I got in the 5 mins I had to spare in-between my wind sprints haha!   This coat…I have a love affair with the color maroon, so this jacket to me is perfection! Technically I think this is a coat but I thought it was more unique & cuter as a work shirt, it also is the softest thing ever!! This coat feels like buttaaaaa…and comes in a ton of amazing colors! I am thinking green is my jam. Apparently I was spying a lot of coats… but this one screams fall & pumpkin spice & I love it! This striped sweater 🙂 all the right colors for fall! I found this jean coat and thought it looked similar to the one I wear all the time but is sold out… But then while linking it I found this ONE below this pic and it is even more similar! This looks exactly like the one I got in May at Lord & Taylor ! They have this sweater in so many beautiful […]

Cozy Bedding Style

I have heard that you spend half of your life in bed…isn’t that crazy! Well, since that is apparently the case you want to be comfortable…right!?? I have also heard that most people decorate their bedroom last because no one else sees it. That wasn’t the case for me, I really wanted to get my bedding done & have that cozy/happy feeling every time I walked into my bedroom. I started on hunt for some nice sheets, I have heard amazing things about Brooklinen, but I felt they were a little too pricey for me. I then read something about Threshold Target sheets so I ordered a few pairs online to feel them and see what I thought. They were really soft to the touch & super affordable. I was sold got the Dark Grey color for my room and the washed blue for my guest room. They held up nicely after washes as well :). I was then on to pillows, I have been avoiding purchasing them but I have been having trouble with grinding my teeth and neck pain so I wanted to try a very comfy pillow. Every time I stay at a Marriott hotel I mention to my husband how comfy the pillows are and he always agrees. Welp, you can buy Marriott pillows… so amazing! So we ordered 4 and are so happy with them, they are oversize and just so cozy! I then searched and searched for a duvet cover that I liked (there was […]

But if I had to pick a favorite it would probably be brown I own this shirt in denim but I am loving this maroon stripe tee as well, how fun are the sleeves! I wasn’t sure about these jeans at first but then after I had them on for awhile I was really loving them and I am pretty much obsessed with high waisted since I entered momma-hood! In love with these maroon mules (wearing in all the pics above  and honestly they are adorable in every single color they come in!                                       Our favorite tee shirt, and spied it in this cute green color! And the best part all our favorite tees are on sale right now for $5 instead of $8!!! Had to fave this blush color faux suede coat and the metal detailing is copper aka looks rose gold 🙂 Fell in love with this dress….again because I don’t have to think, can wear a regular bra and the material is so comfortable.
