LocalLily.com Contributor

I have wonderful news to share with you...I am now a monthly contributor on LocalLily.com. YAY! If you haven't visited Local Lily before, then I'm happy to be the first person to tell you about it. It's a website devoted to all things local in the State of Arizona. From fashion to food to entertainment for your kids, this is a great website to find out how you can support local businesses AND enjoy great experiences in Arizona. Local Lily only writes reviews on places they have visited and LOVED. I suppose you can say they follow the rule of sharing only when you have something nice to say. I love that!

So, once a month you will see a post from me sharing how to create fun outfits. I'm hoping to also explore some fabulous clothing boutiques and share about my experiences too!

Go stop by and say hi. Also, download your free copy of Your Guide to an Arizona Summer That Doesn't Suck.

Happy Monday!

944 Fashion Trailblazer

Something you should know about me is that I'm INCREDIBLY critical of myself and my work. I rarely take time to celebrate, and instead plow through to the next thing pushing myself to be better than before. BUT...TODAY...I'm taking a moment to stop and celebrate because 944, an awesome fashion, entertainment and night life magazine, included me in their picks issue.

AHHHHHHHH! (pause.) EEEEEK! (pause.) **HAPPY DANCE**

They have given me the title of "fashion trailblazer" and picked me as one to watch - words that I'm incredibly honored to be associated with. They mistakenly mentioned I'm a photographer. I would love to add that to the list of things I do, but I'm just going to stick to the styling part. =) Click here to check out the mini article or you can pick up a hard copy of 944 at one of their several locations.

Faith & Fashion

You guys got to see how drop dead gorgeous my friend Sarah Hubbell is in the "Wild About Sequins" shoot, but did you know that Sarah also runs an online faith and culture magazine? Sarah asked me some questions about AVE Styles and how my faith in God plays a role. She even asked the tough question about how I try an avoid promoting consumerism. Oh yes she did! haha!

AZ Lifestyle Magazine - Dressing Your Age

A couple of weeks ago I found an email in my spam filter from AZ Lifestyle Magazine. I had a mini heart attack because I feared I may have missed an opportunity to share about AVE Styles. It turned out I wasn't too late, and was asked to share some tips about dressing age appropriately. It was a no brainer, and I wrote down a list of tips.

Lauren Jordan did a great job writing about the subject. You can read the article here.

I'm so proud to be quoted saying, "Forever 21 doesn't mean forever shop there." haha! Yep, I said it, and you know you think it. ;)
