-Truly Ney- -Truly, Ney- Arizona summers are crazy hot. So you can bet your SPF that our Arizona hotels have elevated the art of keeping cool. Whether you’re coming from far away or are in for a staycation, Mountain Shadows is the perfect way to chill in the desert nestled below Camelback Mountain and Mummy Mountain.

Being that I am only 30 minute drive from the Palomar downtown, it’s hard to believe it’s my first time staying here. When I was approached about doing a girls staycation at the Palomar I was instantly all in. And my first thought when arriving... Why did it take me so long?

-Truly Ney- Us girls sure love pretty flowers whether they’re a single rose, an extravagant bouquet, or a one of a kind center piece. They just light up the room and bring out our smiles. I have to be honest though, I don’t typically buy many flowers or plants for that matter, due to their short life spam. Turns out, I’ve been doing it wrong all along. After our floral workshop with the knowledgeable Paula from Bobbie’s Flowers, I learned how to make a gorgeous arrangement but most importantly make it last. Keep reading to see what I learned from the workshop.

-Marrakech-  

Oh Morocco! Marrakech! Where do I begin? Certainly the most interesting experience I’ve lived. For the longest time I’ve been wanting to visit this enriching, culturally glorifying country and it finally happened. Three of my best girlfriends tagged along and made our trip so much worth the while. The stories, the laughs, and the outfits! Total sex and the city vacay. Goals accomplished!

-Jord Watch- If you follow me on IG @trulyney you’ve probably already heard me refer to men’s fashion lately. As feminine as I tend to be, there’s a certain air of coolness menswear can add to even the “prettiest” outfit. I like to switch things up all the time and I’ve never been one to say to no a new accessory so a unisex wooden watch was exactly what I was looking for.

Let me start off by say this was not my shoot nor my idea. The photography genius Jose Beltran from Jose Studios is the mastermind behind this and many other imaginative shoots.

Today I'm not specifically talking fashion, but more on a topic I've lately become fond of. PHOTOGRAPHY.  This was the first time I got to shoot freely without a product/item to promote but more about telling a story in art itself. Jose's skills for photography start form his visions to working the camera to his impeccable editing skills. Here's a behind the scenes from what I'm calling our "Frosted Fashion" shoot where I was lucky enough to get some good pointers from him to share with you all.

Yes, totally out of my norm here, I’m talking fitness for once. Specifically Mint Body.

Mint body was introduced to me by my dear friend Melissa Moore AKA stylistafitness. She co-hosted this event for us group of girls to try, along with some incredible sponsors and businesses. This is one of the funnest work outs I’ve had in a long time. There was some good jumping, dancing, and tons of laughter so I actually don’t feel like it should even be called a workout at all. Until…next day happened and it reassured us all it was quite the workout in deed. Call it a fit party!

-Truly, Ney- Sometimes all it takes is a piece to make a statement. I’ve admitted on several occasions that, despite my reserved personality, I love statement pieces! Bold earrings? Yes please! Outrageous shoes? Duh! Chunky necklaces? Anytime! Hence this bright print jacket I kind of love right now. Plus the added embroidered details are an added bonus. Turning heads now!

-Truly, Ney- It’s the most wonderful cold, numbing my hands & ears, time of the year. Yes, even Arizonans are freezing their butts off this time around but you’ve already heard us complaining. Truth is, we’re babies when it comes to the cold weather, not to mention the snow. But don’t be fooled by our heat climate and blinding sun. We get snow too and we make the most of it. (at least some of us do)
