Last weekend was my 24th birthday and I wanted to treat myself to a little mini vacation back to California. I’ll be flying solo for this trip, but I’ll end up being super busy catching up with friends, celebrating my belated birthday, and getting tattooed. For this trip, I’ll be flying with a carry-on, which means I have to be more conscious of what I’m packing.

This review is 100% honest. F*ck selling out. Foundation primer is definitely one of those things that can make or break your foundation application. It’s also one of those things that’s definitely not one-size-fits-all. Always looking to find another great primer for my skin, I tried the Laura Mercier Foundation Primer.
Summer means bikini season, even if you can’t swim like me. While I used to avoid the beach in California, the 115 degree heat out here in Arizona means I’ve been spending some time at the pool. Pretty Attitude clothing helped me get squared away for the pool by sending me some swimwear, including this Wild Thing Cheetah High Waist Two-Piece Swimsuit.
There’s something incredibly sexy about wearing an animal print. Maybe it evokes feelings of being a dangerous predator. Maybe it’s because it’s bold and graphic. Whatever the reason, I am living for this leopard jumpsuit.
I understand that I’m very lucky to be able to afford to go shopping at all, nevermind buying high end goods. I was always under the impression that I had to be a millionaire to ever be able to afford any nice clothes. And I think a lot of people think that way too. High end fashion has become something that seems almost unattainable thanks to the rise of cheap fast fashion. However, it is possible to find cheap high end fashion that’s budget-friendly and high quality. Every month, I’ll be picking some great high end pieces that are $100 or less. I hope this helps those with less disposable income still build the high end closet of their dreams. This post contains affiliate links. If you’re wondering why, read this.
Let’s face it: I’m the kind of girl that wears black all year round, including when it’s 100 degrees in the desert. I will always rock that black spring outfit. Still, I’ve managed to find a way to stay cool while wearing my favorite color.
Okay, so maybe a floral grunge look for spring isn’t groundbreaking (thanks to The Devil Wears Prada), but it is a solid choice. The past few seasons, florals have been staples for both fall and spring outfits, making them a great investment you can wear all year round. I’m actually not a big fan of spring and summer since I can’t wear all the layers I love. If you’re like me and not a fan of the heat, you can give your outfit a grungy edge while still staying cool.
My boyfriend’s tattoo artist is in Tuscon, so we’ve been spending a lot of Saturdays there. While he gets tattooed, I get to explore the downtown area. For whatever reason, a lot of people I’ve talked to in Phoenix aren’t really into Tuscon, but I think it’s a pretty cool spot. The downtown area definitely has a cool artsy vibe.
