Let me introduce myself

current favorites

Hello!! Welcome to my brand-spanking-new website! I’m so excited you’re here!!! Creating a brand and website involves endless amounts of blood, sweat and tears.  There were nights I would lie awake wondering if I was getting it right. Hoping that I was giving my amazing designer (Jacki, Foil and Ink) the proper direction. But it’s finished and I am OVER THE MOON, excited and happy with how it turned out!

If you head to my About page you’ll see a little bit about me but I wanted to take this opportunity to dive a little deeper into what makes ME, well ME!

Instead of rambling on for several paragraphs I decided to interview myself (Jimmy Fallon wasn’t available) so here goes!

M: What’s the first thing you do in the morning?

MB: Pour a cup of coffee, duh! Also I’ve been adding the Vital Protein Collagen coffee creamer and it was done wonders for my hair, skin and nails! Literally got 3 compliments recently.

M: What’s your favorite Podcast right now?

MB: Ok so full disclosure I’m a sucker for all things true crime and politics, but that can get a little HEAVY, so I’ve been listening to the Johnjay and Rich Podcast primarily all the “gotcha” segments like War of the Roses, Second Date Update and Humpday Dumpday.  They make me laugh so much and help me stay light hearted throughout the day.  I also really like Dax Shepard’s Armchair Expert and This American Life so so good!

M: Favorite shows your currently watching?

MB: Lots of HBO and Bravo! Crashing is hilarious, High Maintenance, The Case Against Adnan Syed (a must watch), and rewatching season 6 of Game of Thrones.  Also can’t wait for the new season of Veep and Succession.  Right now it’s RHW of Beverly Hills and New York, so entertaining!

M: What is the one food you can’t live without??

MB: That’s so easy! Chips and Salsa!! I could eat them for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The spicier the salsa the better!! My favorite place for chips and salsa is a hole in the wall called Rosita’s Place in Phoenix.

M: Wine or Champagne?

MB: I love a nice glass of wine, I really want to love champagne because of the bubbles but it gives me a headache, so sad!

M: What’s your dream vacation??

MB: Me and the fam, Air BnB on the beach, Hanalei Bay, Kauai!

M: Dream destination wedding location?

MB: That’s easy! TUSCANY!

M: Where are your go-to shopping spots?

MB: For clothes, Nordstrom Rack, Anthopologie, Free People and Revolve (online). However, Phoenix has amazing boutique shopping and I love Vida Moulin, Muse, For the People and Local Nomad!

For gifts Urbana in Arcadia!


Friends, is there anything else you want to know about me?? Drop it in the comments below! I’d love to hear all your recommendations for shopping spots, podcasts and TV shows!


Have a beautiful day!
