Ever since moving to Arizona I am obsessed with wanting to have guests over at the apartment. Call me lonely, I call it wanting to be hospitable 😅 This weekend my aunts are coming to visit with me and Sean. They have been on a 10 day west coast road trip and are ending vacation with us. How amazing is that!! I wanted to make the apartment nice ( I think

S A N F R A N, 2020

First trip of 2020 is in the books! It was quick but fun. Left out from Phoenix on a Friday night and came back Sunday night. We stayed in San Fran at the Hotel Whitcomb on Market Street (they just turned that street into a no regular traffic zone which was nice). We went to Sam Fran because Sean’s daughter had a couple of dance auditions. While she was doing


Every year for the past three years Sean and I go to Moab, Utah (that’s where Arches and Canyon Lands National Parks are) We don’t go for the parks; we go because one of Sean’s favorite hobbies is taking the Jeep out into the mountains. Moab has some of the best off roading paths out there, some of them that we both refuse to go on ever again (we’ve learned

Nothing too much to say about this sweater, just thought I would have fun posting these photos 🙂 I think wrap clothing is so cute and totally trending right now! This sweater can be worn on or off the shoulder as well, which I live for because I’m always cold!

It was so great to be around nature all day and to see how different areas around the world use flowers to showcase their culture.  Parking wasn’t that bad, it super organized. There were restaurants and cafeteria style food court to eat at, which is nice because we had a big

My first trip to Canada so was much fun! We, Sean’s family, went to British Victoria Island, explored a lot and made great memories.

Maybe, but worth a look. [/one_half_last] [one_half padding=”0px 20px 0 0″] [/one_half] [one_half_last padding=”0px 20px 0


My New Beauty Tip: When covering pimples I always use a spot of concealer, but it doesn’t really cover the texture of the pimple- only the redness. So, what I’ve been trying lately is to use a little brow pencil to make it look like a freckle. Freckles are in this year so why not try it for myself!? After I apply the brow pencil to the spot I will

SHORT HAIR & READY FOR SUMMER   Guys, I did it! I chopped my hair! And I am so happy! I had been debating for 3 months and Sean was soooo tired of having this conversation. I was consistently asking him ‘what do you think of her hair? You think my hair would look good at that length?’  And Sean eventually told me to stop talking about it because he didn’t


You guys! I got the amazing privilege to collaborate with Shop Settlement again. And this outfit is something that I really took my time planning out! Tiffany got these new painter style overalls at her store and at first I was nervous that they would be too long for me so we talked about the measurements and I said ‘SOLD’. While waiting for my package I prepped my skin with


 Hi! My name is Kim Phillips.  I make a conscious choice of being a very busy woman in the kitchen. Why? Because I believe it’s one of the most important jobs I can do for myself & my family. I’ve raised three good kids and now only have a 17 year old left at home. Besides being a wife and mother, I am an occasional pool gal (helping with my
