Shopping in Phoenix!


Or should I say Scottsdale, AZ!

I guess I have been sleeping on Phoenix's style for years! I hadn't a clue that Phoenix is it's own style mecca! The fashion game in the desert is impressive to say the least. Granted, I did most of my people watching in very high-end areas. You could just sit and watch the shoppers strut through the mall. They created their own fashion show! Here are places that I'll always love to go whenever I'm in the area:

Scottsdale Fashion Square: Scottsdale Fashion Square is a retail powerhouse and one of the top tourist destinations in Arizona! They have everything from Carolina Herrera to Claire's! And probably the largest mall I've ever been in!

Kierland Commons: Beautiful main street lifestyle shopping. When I was here, I was pressed for time. I only got the chance to shop at BCBGMaxAzria and Banana Republic. But the streets were filled with happy-looking shoppers going from dining establishments to retail stores.

Biltmore Shopping Park: is another fabulous open-air shopping location that is anchored by Saks Fifth Avenue. There are fabulous stores there such as Stuart Weitzman, Escada, Cole Haan and Ralph Lauren.

Happy Father's Day!




My husband is an incredible father.

He's my best friend and my rock.

He provides for us and has always supported us with everything and anything we wanted to do.

He has always been right there helping with the raising of our kids.

He's the type of dad that got up at night with the babies, grocery shops, cooks, does housework, goes to doctor's appointments, parent-teacher conferences, practices, recitals, takes daughters to the mall and is Mr. Mom when I need to go out to pursue my own interest.

I'm so happy I picked him!

Happy Father's Day to the Love of My Life!
