I thought it would be fun to reflect on my nail art over the past year because I am in need of some new inspiration and want to try something different. I also noticed that I LOVE various pink shades and glitter, which is very fitting because I am having a little girl:). Enjoy and share!

Check out my latest segment with the show “The List,” on LED Fashion and where the trend is headed. Our little one made her first television debut (I was 30 weeks pregnant when we shot this segment, you can see a quick shot of my baby belly and I love it!).

I recently teamed up with Channel 15’s show “The List,” to talk about LED Fashion. For those that don’t know what LED is, it’s a light emitting diode that emits light when activated. Typically when you think of LED lights you may think of digital signs on buildings, the Light Bright toy you played with when you were a child or anything electronic but now when you think of LED lights you can think of fashion!

Katy Perry made LED fashionable with her Light Up dress at the 2010 Met Gala, she wore a Cute Circuit gown that featured bright colored rope lights. Then later on Cute Circuit made a gown for Nicole Scherzinger with 2000 LED lights inertwined with 3000 swarovski crystals and the LED lights actually showed live tweets from her fans during her concert!

The young generation is taking over with their 2 favorite things, technology and fashion! Years ago this trend would have been considered weird but now this trend is a form of expression through fashion and it is becoming more popular as years go on. After entertainers broke through with LED fashion, everyday people jumped on the LED bandwagon by buying LED tshirts that can display messages and images from their smart phones. They are now even selling LED accessories to pair your look together with hats, jewelry, bow ties and even your shoes. Cute Circuit CEO Francessa Rosella told CNN that her latest dress changes color based on the movement of the person wearing it. So this will hopefully encourage more people to be more active!

Make sure to tune in this Tuesday, July 21st at 4:30 on Channel 15’s “The List,” to see the segment but if you don’t live in Arizona check your local listing on www.thelisttv.com. Special thanks to Clothes Minded Boutique in Phoenix, AZ for letting us shoot at their beautiful boutique, although they do not carry LED fashion, they carry amazing pieces at affordable prices.

What better way to spend father’s day than with the one you love that will soon be a father in a few short months. I can’t believe how fast time has flew by. I remember the first day we met, our first kiss, our first dance as a married couple and all of the amazing memories in-between. Now we are bringing a beautiful little girl into this world that will soon conquer it with all she has.

During my pregnancy I have been counting down the days for our maternity shoot because I cannot wait for her to see these pictures when she is older. So, as a stylist I am always thinking about what type of “look” I want to go for in a shoot and for our maternity shoot I knew exactly what I wanted and Ashley Lorraine Photography captured it perfectly through her camera lens. I LOVE spring time…even though it was 110 degrees outside and the middle of June I wanted it to look like a beautiful spring day in a garden and that is exactly what it looked like! Our photographer captured a beautiful “spring day,” with oranges on the floor as a perfect final touch.

The past couple of months have been filled with baby registries (having no idea what to register for), getting her room ready, picking out baby shower invites, baby shower decorations and planning and attending family and friend baby showers. It has been an amazing time doing all of this and sharing this experience with all of my loved ones. I couldn’t have asked for a better support system and I am forever grateful. My beautiful and amazing mom has played a key role in all of this because she is a, “party planner” at heart. As you can see from the pictures below she knows her stuff and thought of every key detail from the games to the watermelon baby and beautiful princess diaper cake 🙂

Working out is not on my list of fun things to do….but since I have been pregnant I have been trying to be as healthy as possible and that starts with working out at least 3 times a week (which is A LOT for me). I am a very busy lady with a lot of projects going on at any given time so I thought it would be best for me to workout at home. YouTube has become my best friend since I have been preggers because I have found great workout routines so I don’t get bored with the same workouts every day. Below is 2 of my favorite routines from Jessica Smith TV, which consists of a low impact cardio workout and a total body strength workout and boy do I feel good after the workout. I will definitely try to keep working out as a regular routine but we will see how long that lasts after she is here 🙂

Summer is officially here (in my eyes because it is soooo hot outside) and when it’s hot my “go to,” is flowy dresses because I don’t feel restricted or uncomfortable with the summer heat. I also like that I can transition this dress into fall by adding a cropped jean jacket or fitted black blazer. This dress is from the new maternity line Liz Langer at Target. I read about this collaboration a couple months ago and couldn’t wait to see her collection in stores. I love her maternity pieces because it doesn’t look like typical maternity clothes and it’s affordable which is also a plus in my eyes.

I also feel that I can wear a lot of her dresses after pregnancy because then it turns into a “boho sleek look,” (if you know me or have worked with me before, you know that I always think ahead on how much wear I will get out of the pieces I buy even if the price point is low because there is no shame is planning and saving money :)).

This May I had the honor of working with the new Robbins Brothers Engagement Ring Store in Scottsdale. Robbins Brothers is an engagement and wedding ring company with stores located in Southern California, Houston and Dallas/Ft. Worth Texas, Seattle Washington and now Scottsdale Arizona. The company specializes in engagement ring settings and loose diamonds, it carries an extensive selection of wedding bands, promise rings, anniversary bands, three-stone rings, earrings, pendants and bracelets. Onsite jewelers are available to set diamonds, create custom-settings and perform service and maintenance checks, which is nice because after you buy an expensive piece of jewelry you want to make sure that you can keep it in mint condition and get it checked on a regular basis with no fuss.

On May 14th all of the Arizona fashion socialites were there to show their support for the new Scottsdale jewelry store and for the charity, “Future for Kids,” which is a non-profit organization that helps children who face adversity excel through camps that focus on academics, athletics and ethics. I co-hosted and styled the event with beautiful models frosted in Robbins Brothers jewels and wearing dresses from (one of my favorite stores) BCBG. During the night there were amazing giveaways, yummy food and classical music that tied the entire evening together.

I love to wear dresses while I am pregnant because it is the easiest to wear and is the most comfortable, yet professional. I also like that I can easily transition from the work week (which is pictured) to the weekend by switching bags, heels to ballet flats and a long simple necklace with a top knot hair style.

I have never been a huge fan of horizontal stripes but sometimes it depends on the outfit itself and the tailoring of the overall look like makes me swoon. I have noticed during my pregnancy shopping that there is an insane amount of stripes out there anywhere from shorts, skirts, tops, dresses, jackets and even swimsuits. I am trying to only have the bare minimum of stripes in my closet so here is one of the few stripe looks I have that I LOVE!

When I first started showing my baby bump I was excited to start looking for maternity wear because there has always been a negative outlook on pregnancy wear and I was ready to break that outlook. But let me just say that it was a hard process because even the maternity stores I tried shopping at had mostly “moo-moo’s.” Asos has a maternity line online that I truly fell in love with and I am sure you will too because you don’t feel like you are wearing maternity clothes because they are hip and in style.

We also started getting her room ready and our crib finally came in and we fell in love with it! It is so much fun decorating and finding pieces for her room. Everything is coming together so well and I can’t believe in 4 short months she will be here with us!
