Love is Sweet: Valentine’s Day 2019

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Love is in the air.  I love this time of year.  Spreading JOY, LOVE and GOOD.

Doing small acts of kindness continue to spread only positive vibes.

These high school seniors ROCKED this Valentine’s inspired shoot.  These girls have developed friendship and respect for other girls from high schools all over the valley.  It was so cool to see how everyone opened up and had a great time!

An Elegant Wedding: Haley

I first met Haley when I was an account executive with Stila and she was working at a cosmetic counter.  I loved her energy and positive attitude to learn about new products.  Her passion to help those looking for makeup guidance was uplifting.

I was completely surprised but honored to be asked to do Haley’s makeup for her big day.

We did a trial on the day of her bridal shower- pretty in shades of pink.  We kept a neutral lip and made her cheeks pop.  On the big day we changed up the looks slightly and added a little more depth to warm it up.  I LOVED how these shots turned out at the beautiful venue The Elegant Barn!

T-shirt Tuesday! Jennifer Rzepecki

munkee_1028111828

I was introduced to Mama’s Cold Brew long before I met and talked with Jennifer officially. (If you have not tried this amazing cold brew coffee, you must!  It. Is. Delicious.) It was so nice getting to know Jennifer more when I did her t-shirt Tuesday makeup application. Seeing how her local Phoenix business has flourished is inspiring. Successful women are inspiring. Showing that staying positive, having dedication and working hard pays off.  I think this is only the beginning for this growing business, and for Jennifer!

A little about Jennifer:

Why is this your favorite t-shirt?: I love what this shirt represents, it is the foundation of everything for me in my life.  Dovetail Vintage- Fruits of the Spirit- Joy, Peace, Goodness, Forbearance, Faithfulness, Gentleness, Self-Control.

Tell me a little about yourself: I am wife to Mark for 11 years, Mom to four kiddos (Lola 7, Austin 6, Alex 3, Collins 2).  From Buffalo, New York now living in Arizona for the past 10 years.  I have owned Mama’s Cold Brew for 3 years and get to live out a lifelong passion of culinary creativity!

 

T-shirt Tuesday! Audria Trapp

screenshot_20161010-195759_resized

Audria and I met at a workshop in downtown Phoenix and even though we didn’t talk much during the workshop, getting to know her while planning her tshirt Tuesday makeup application showed me why our paths crossed. Audria was real, honest, so friendly and welcoming when she opened the door for me to do makeup. I felt like we had known each other for much longer than our meeting at the workshop. We related to each other and as a woman, it’s nice to know we are not alone in our thoughts. Audria is inspiring- a woman, a mom, a teacher and a student. We all wear so many hats and our strength is shown through all that we do.

A little about Audria:

Why is this your favorite t-shirt?: I started going to Sutra Midtown 2 years ago when I was a new mama and I wanted to get back to feeling good about my body. I was really drawn to the community and good vibes that Sutra has to offer. In 1 month I will be completing my 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training Program there. Being apart of this studio has fostered tremendous personal growth, new friendships, and great opportunities. I started rocking The Zen Bird headbands and met the owner Marian at a sutra event by asking her if she wanted her picture taken with her friend. I now work for her part time, and that connection has led me to meeting you at one of her workshops. Everything I’m wearing is representative of the power of connection, which is one of my passions in life.

Tell me a little about yourself: I am a mama and a wife, a believer in the every day miraculous, and a lover of music, food, and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia (if you didn’t catch that already). I’m actually watching “The Night Man Cometh” as I write this. I am a military brat, born in Florida, but consider myself to be an Arizona native now. I’m obsessed with house plants and a dream of mine is to have an indoor jungle in my home. I (sort of) speak Italian and can’t wait to go back to Italy someday! Another dream of mine is to open a bakery / yoga studio with my mom who is a baker and cake decorator. How amazing would it be to do yoga as you smell delicious cakes being baked?! A girl can dream, right?

T-shirt Tuesday! Rachel Eskandari

Screenshot_20160906-135228_resized

I have known Rachel through her collaboration with my sister, as well as attending one of her watercolor workshops.  Although my medium of choice is not paint, but makeup, I enjoyed every minute of the workshop! It is always inspiring to create in any form. The space that Rachel creates shows her undeniable talent to teach and explain in a safe environment for learning. It was a great experience!

For a list of all Pink Puddle Studio‘s workshops and prints for purchase, take a look at the site.

A little about Rachel:

Why is this your favorite t-shirt?:  I love this shirt because it is flowy and comfortable.  I am all about casual on a day-to-day basis, but with style. The lace pattern adds a vintage style that I love.

Tell me a little about yourself:   I am an artist- I should say a painter of all mediums.  Most of my work is done in watercolor and oil paint.  I am the owner/artist of Pink Puddle Studio, a company I started about 2 years ago.  I feel so grateful to be able to do what I love on a daily basis.  I believe art is an extension of beauty and there should be a lot more of it in the world.

T-shirt Tuesday! Heather Petrey

Munkee_0830172304_resized

Heather and I attended a The Zen Bird workshop together in downtown Phoenix a couple months back.  I love hearing the introductions from each person at the workshop because it shows so much about the individual. Heather had recently moved here from Houston, Texas and her love of Phoenix was shown very quickly.  She was real, raw and every word she said, we all nodded in agreement.  I respected the true self that Heather presented and was so happy she had settled into the ‘Valley of the Sun’.  I look forward to catching up over coffee and hearing all about her trip to New York Fashion Week!

This natural makeup look with a pop of a red lip is perfection on Heather!

A little about Heather:

Why is this your favorite t-shirt?:  It is my favorite Tshirt because the brand – Curated Cotton, is a local brand based in Houston. I know the owner and she’s pretty cooI. I also like supporting local. The tee is super cozy and what’s not to like about a cactus print ?!

Tell me a little about yourself:  I’m Heather and I was born in Los Angeles. I’m currently a photographer at My Sister’s Closet in Phoenix. I’m also the content creator behind my fashion and lifestyle blog- LAFashionsnob.com. I’ve had the blog since November 2008, having been influenced to start a blog while I was at a local LA handmade market- Felt Club. I had really enjoyed speaking with the vendors and hearing their stories, thus I was inspired to share their stories and products with the world. Since its launch, it has grown, and will continue to grow. I focus mainly on covering fashion events (and am attending NYFW for the second time this September), but I also do reviews, highlight local/indie brands and designers, have a page showcasing my unique style, and am also trying to grow my lifestyle page, which deals with local hotels and restaurants.

I really have enjoyed the many opportunities that have come with having a blog, and I’ve met so many great people. It’s also helped me come out of my shell. Along with having a blog, I also love the desert, anything cacti, Route 66, travel, photography, thrifting, styling, and anything to do with vintage clothing and decor.

 

T-shirt Tuesday! Megan Perry

Screenshot_20160829-191550_resized

Sometimes people enter your life and you have no idea how meeting them will impact you.  Megan was one of these people.  I did her makeup for her class reunion one Saturday at work.  We started talking and before you knew it, I was booked to do makeup for her wedding in California.  I was so grateful our paths crossed, and even more so that I get to know Megan more each time we chat.

A little about Megan:

Why is this your favorite t-shirt?:  I’m super blessed to have such a close group of girlfriends in my life. We call ourselves the “LIG Crew” aka Life is Good Crew. It started out with a group of 5 of us, my two older sisters, our two friends that are also sisters, and me. We’ve all known each other for 20+ years and over time added 4 more ladies to our squad. Most of us have matching “Life is Good” tattoo’s, but some will have to earn that commitment before getting permanent artwork on their body (Stephanie know’s this story ha). Every time I wear a Life is Good t-shirt it just reminds me how lucky I am to have such an amazing bond with 9 wonderful ladies.

Tell me a little about yourself:  Hi, my name is Megan and I was born and raised in Phoenix, AZ. At the age of two, I started competing all over the world doing a type of dance called clogging. For those of you who do not know, clogging is a mixture of Tap and Riverdance. For the past 25 years, my clogging team hosted an annual competition and we had our final one last month . Even though I don’t compete anymore, it will always be a huge part of my life.

I have a very strong work ethic and have always been quite the workaholic. I started working a week after I turned 15 at a local restaurant called Barro’s Pizza. While there, I would make pizzas, run the cash register, and help deliver pizzas to the customers. Throughout my time in school, I continued working at the pizza place. When I graduated from North Canyon High, I received a job opportunity to work in their preschool room and athletic department. I spent many years there and accepting the job was the best decision in my life because that is where I ended up meeting my fiancé. He was an english teacher and basketball coach.

Being a “Zonie” as the Californians call us, and growing up in the desert, we always had an appreciation for the beach. I would frequently travel to San Diego in the summer and ever since I was little, I can remember always wanting to move there. Two years ago, my dream came true as my fiancé and I finally made it happen. We quit our jobs with the school district, found a place to live, and moved to the beach without any employment opportunities. Everyone thought we were crazy moving without anything lined up, but guess what, we are proving them wrong each day as we are going on our third year. We are both loving life and have two amazing jobs working in the education field.

Last August, shortly after celebrating year one in San Diego, my fiancé Peter finally got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. We will be getting married this October and I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with him.

T-shirt Tuesday! Kim Kendall

20160804_175631_resized

 

Kim has a great boutique with so many unique pieces.  I find something I love every time I go in!  She is driven to support local! Kim may have a CLOTHES mind and eye but she is equally as talented with the business portion of being an owner.  I loved doing her makeup and talking about being a woman in an ever evolving industry.  I am so grateful I met Kim years ago and look forward to seeing everything she is going to accomplish.

Clothes Minded is located in Ahwatukee off the I-10 and Chandler Blvd.  Stop by, say hi and find your next favorite outfit!

A little about Kim:

Why is this your favorite t-shirt?: I have many faves and today this is the one because I love State Forty Eight and supporting passionate local creatives. They are my #1 seller in my store.  Also, the Bruce Arians shirt because this Friday the Cardinals play the Raiders in their 1st home preseason game. My son and I are taking my husband to the game for his 40th birthday. 🙂

Tell me a little about yourself: I love the local vibe here in Phoenix.  It inspired me to open a boutique.  I’ve tried to support many local designers by carrying their products in the store.  I have a passion to help women look and feel beautiful.  I have two daughters and a son and I’ve always wanted to do something that could be passed on to them, or at least would inspire them.  I love fashion which is why I called my store Clothes Minded.  I also love to read and write.  I hope to someday write a book.

T-shirt Tuesday! Lisa Pauling

Munkee_0721162939

I met Lisa when I attended a workshop where she was teaching how to create a positive message on jewelry with hand stamping.  It was a great workshop and I loved the energy Lisa exuded when she spoke about her passion and business.  Lisa is a huge supporter of local artists in Phoenix and encourages others to shop the local market as well.

Take a look at her one-of-a-kind hand stamped jewelry- Be You Jewelry!

A little about Lisa:

Why is this your favorite t-shirt?: I am very thankful for all that I have been able to do in my life and the road that starting my own business has lead me down. The people that I have met and continue to meet are outstanding. I absolutely love the fit and feel of Sweet T’s shirts! They are the perfect thing to throw on and feel stylish and sassy even in just a simple tee. I love supporting local artists and am proud to wear Phx-made clothing. Moriah is such a talented, lovely, kind, and inspiring person, and I am proud to support her and call her my friend!

Tell me a little about yourself: I create personalized, handmade, hand stamped pieces custom to your liking. Each piece is different, simple, classic, and imperfectly perfect. Jewelry pieces are crafted to promote positivity and self-love, and are always made with love in Arizona. I love supporting the local art scene and have made it a priority to collaborate with nonprofit organizations to help raise awareness for their causes. I put my heart and soul into every piece, truly making my collection one-of-a-kind, unique, and heartfelt.
