Beautifully handcrafted, this sterling silver North Star Necklace is classy, simple, and a must have. The meaning behind this necklace is to ‘follow your North Star’ and be true to who you are, always remembering where you are meant to be. Each handcrafted charm has an initial on one side and a Braille constelation on the reverse side. This is one of my favorite necklaces of all time.

IHotel Valley Ho

Perfectly placed in Downtown Scottsdale, the Hotel Valley Ho is the perfect place to staycation this summer. It’s location makes it prime as its just steps away from the downtown vibrant Scottsdale culture, the inventive dining and trendy nightlife.

My family recently stayed at the Hotel Valley Ho and enjoyed a one-of-a-kind getaway!

He just couldn’t give up the pool.

Room service … too phoney?

Teaching him how to order room service

We had different “staycation” plans… hello wine.

Need a foodie recommendation: Visit the ZUZU AT HOTEL VALLEY HO.

The ZuZu serves enticing, inventive American fare from Chef Russell LaCasce along with yummy festive cocktails. You and your family can dine inside, on the shaded patio, or if your feeling sunburnt from spending all day at the oasis, you can order it bed side. They serve breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner.

If you want food within walking distance try CULINARY DROPOUT.
Culinary Dropout serves tasty gastro-pub food, cocktails and has the best atmosphere around town. Happy hour and brunch comes curbside with live music.


Want some secret advice? The Hotel Valley Ho charges $18 per day, plus tax for valet parking. Plus an additional $10 a day per vehicle (if you have friends join you). Park along 69th for free city parking and use that $18 on an extra drink poolside!


The Hotel Valley Ho has two remarkable pools. I took Charlie (my 2 year old) to the resort so we spent almost all of our time at the OHasis pool. The OHasis Pool is a tranquil retreat, ideal for leisurely laps, lounging, and even features a small pool for children. Its the perfect spot to relax under towering palms. Don’t waste your time packing pool towels and water bottles, all the pools have ice cold fresh water available and towels. And if water is’nt up your alley, refreshing cocktails can be delivered in a snap.

iplay Baby

I feel like we may be the only family in Arizona without a pool. We often find ourselves at my parents’ house, or my in laws house because of this. I recently received some iPlay items for this summer and I was so pleased with the quality of their items. Charlie loved the brightness and comfort of everything. In fact, he wouldn’t take the swim trunks and hat off.

The Reusable Swim Diaper has a three layer design that helps prevent diaper rash and keeps the potty messes inside the diaper and out of the pool… because no one likes the kid who pooped in the community pool (sorry if that was you.) They are snug fitting and lightweight and have e easy lock snaps on the side for easy application and take off.

The Pocket Trunks with Built In Reusable Absorbent Swim Diaper also have a three layer design. My husband likes these best as he thinks they are more “manly” on Charlie. They have a wicking liner that helps to prevent diaper rash. They also fit snug and are lightweight. Charlie loves the colors and the monkey design!

The iplay water shoes are perfect for the Arizona pool sessions. I don’t know how many times I’ve burnt my feet on the cool deck while walking out to the pool. I’ve found that these are also perfect for the beach when the sand gets hot! They are made of a quick dry material and have a no-slip bottom that prevents baby from cracking his head open when he decides to make a poor decision and run on slippery wet cement. They are easy to pull off and easy to place on because of the flexible breathable material.

The sun flap protection hat is one of Charlies favorites. It is UPF 50+, dries quickly, is lightweight, and has the extra neck coverage to prevent baby sunburns. It also has a tie strap (with the cutest little felt design … only a mom would notice this ;)) that makes it adjustable to fit babies head as it grows.

The Breatheasy Sun Protection Shirt is one of my favorites. Not only is it classy but I like to have Charlie wear it out and about on the hot summer days. Its UPF 50+ which means I don’t have to lather him up with sticky sunscreen prior to going out on our adventures. Its made of a breathable, quick dry, lightweight material with a pocket in the front. The shirt has a pull on neck opening which makes application easy and take off even easier.

The Muslin Hood Towel is made of organic muslin and knitted terry. It has 2 layers for extra absorbency and warmth. It even has a hood and 2 hand pockets to help keep baby warm.
