Sharing Stories with The Glossary Phoenix

The Glossary joined forces with Local Nomad to bring together some pretty remarkable women this morning. My friends and I went and listed to Christina from New Darlings talk about her rise to social success, Teresa from Camelback Flower Shop and other great creative women sharing their success stories. As a woman entrepreneur myself, it’s always great when you can surround yourself with like-minded ladies who have been there, done that.

They set up shop, literally, inside this cute boutique. I had to try to keep my focus because while the panelist were talking, I found myself looking around at all of this cute merchandise. Did you know that I always wanted to own my own retail store? When I graduated college, I moved to Orange County and it was my dream to open concept boutiques all along the Pacific coast.

I was about to go for it when my passion took me in a new direction. I ended up choosing a career in marketing (which I wouldn’t imaging doing anything else) but fashion has always been my first love. Today was a great morning with some great women – below are some pictures so you can see what I mean about how incredibly cute this boutique is!

The Real Life of Bloggers

I wanted to share a ‘real life’ blogger moment with you. About 2 months ago, I was styling products for Stowaway Cosmetics. I was hosting a giveaway on my mom blog and I wanted to take the perfect photo that would illustrate the size of the cosmetics (because that’s their thing, their cosmetics are just the ‘right size’ and not too large).

I decided my son was the perfect model to showcase the size of the product. So, I set up a little area in his nursery (it’s where I do most of my photo shoots because it has the best natural light) to photograph their products. I got the perfect shot (after about 50 tries) when suddenly, he puked!


Baby puked all over the product and my backdrop. Ugh! I had to start all over. It was a real behind-the-scenes moment that I just had to share. Because, to this day, this photo still makes me laugh. Just know … nothing is what is seems on the internet with bloggers. There, I said it.
