New Zealand Here We Come!

Well friends, Kiwi and I are off on another adventure! We are heading to New Zealand to visit Kiwi's family and to check out a few of the Rugby World Cup games. Also on the agenda: bungee jumping, black water rafting and zorbing! I'll try and post a few photos and updates while we are away. See you guys in a few weeks!

Labor Day Getaway

The older I get the more I appreciate quiet weekends at our family cabin. It's amazing how rejuvenated you feel after a few days of reading, biking, baking and taking photos. Once again, poor Kiwi had to stay at home {he's almost done with his MBA program!} but it was great spending some quality girl time with my little sister and my sweet friend Amanda who joined us on the trip and baked us many a delicious treat. A little Labor Day getaway was just what the doctor ordered!

the fun bun

My favorite look these days is a super high bun piled atop my head. It's incredibly easy and with Arizona temperatures still in the triple digits, it's a simple and stylish way to keep cool. It would be a conservative estimate to say that I sport this hairstyle at least four days a week. Needless to say, when I came across this article describing Lauren Conrad's fun bun as a super-chic, donut-inspired summer hairstyle I had a pretty good laugh. I ask you, what could be better than a donut-inspired 'do?
