Spring Has Sprung: Sweatshirt + Cutoff Shorts + Slip-Ons

Saturday, March 21, 2015


Hey there!  This is my first post written since I turned yet another year older.  Thursday was my birthday, and I turned the ripe, old age of 26.  Remember when you were in grade school and you had teachers who were 26?  Yeah... You totally thought they were super old.  Don't deny it.  I mean, I'm pretty sure we all thought anything over 17 was ancient. Thankfully, I still feel relatively young (despite the creaking joints and poppin' bones that are starting to occur more and more these days).  Plus, with each passing year, life just keeps getting peachier and peachier, ya know what I'm sayin'?

I'm forever grateful for all of the opportunities that my 25th year of life brought me.  Just in the last year, we adopted Kingsley & Ollie into our family, took our trip to Italy and Greece, made the most amazing friends here in Phoenix, my sister & niece were in AZ for the past few months... I could go on listing for what seems like an eternity.  25 really is quite a year to top... but I have faith that 26 can do it ;)



Creamsicle: Sweater + Trousers + Wedges

Hi there!  How are ya?  The temperature in Phoenix really started climbing upwards this week (up to 90 degrees already...?!?!), which makes me a little sad.  I feel like it's way too soon to be this hot this early.  I want a few more weeks of sweater weather, ya know?  The day I wore this outfit in today's post, it started out pretty chilly in the morning, but by the time I got home from work, a sweater and long pants were far from weather-appropriate.  That's what happens here in the desert though.  Ah, Phoenix, I love ya in the winter... I fear ya in the summer.

Hats Off to You: Denim Jacket + Tank + Maxi Skirt + Wedges

Hey, guys!  This is not a test.  I repeat: THIS IS NOT A TEST.  It's truly true... I'm really back!  And this long break in LunaVida-Ville was thanks in part to moving into our new home (which you get a little sneak peek of in today's post :D), starting a brand new job, coming down with the cold to end all colds that put me off my feet for a few days solid, and then not being able to get our Internet set up for a couple weeks... But I triumphed through it all, and I did it for you.  I know, I know... I'm a hero for the ages.  And oh, boy.  Have I missed you.

I used one of my new favorite makeup products, Paula Dorf Cosmetics' Perfect Color in Ecstasy, for this post.  You can use it for a touch of color just about anywhere.  It goes on so smoothly, and it looks amazing on eyes, lips, and cheeks!  I like to use a little on my lips as a base for lipstick or as a sheer blush for everyday wear.

Did ya miss me?  I most certainly missed you.  I can't wait to be back to action full time!  My job and the new house are still definitely taking up a lot of my spare time, but now that I finally have Internet again, I plan to be back to blogging more regularly for sure.  And check back for a tour of our home when it's all put together, too!  XOXO





Ooh, and PS:  With each Paula Dorf Cosmetics purchase, LunaVida readers will receive a free gift of their mini No Color Glimmer powder for a limited time!  Just use promo code "ECSTASY" at PaulaDorf.com.

I was given this product to try, powered by BrandBacker.  All thoughts expressed are 100% my own opinions and text.

Novel Tee: Scarf + T-Shirt + Skinnies + Slip-ons

Hi there!  I am so so so sorry that I've been beyond absent lately!  I recently started a brand new job (yay!) and then, on top of that, Matt & I have been spending every spare minute packing, painting our new house, cleaning the old place, and so on and so forth, as moving tends to go.  I haven't had a second to even breathe, let alone any extra time to blog.  Sadness :(  But it's all happy, exciting changes so it's worth it, of course :)  I apologize though, and it may still be a bit before I get back on a more normal schedule for the ol' LunaVida, but I promise to be back ASAP.  Please don't forget about me -- and be sure to follow along via Instagram in the mean time!
