First stop Calico Ghost town. After an 8am gathering of 30 bloggers and lots of coffee at the Magic tradeshow head quarters we all piled in this incredible bus with gift bags full of goodies. A blogger bus ride through the desert includes shopping on Rue Lala, instagraming, fashion trivia and eye spy bingo for a chance to win a polaroid camera, all while bussing through the desert! Our first stop Calico Ghost town, the heat was insane but we scored some perfect pics. As true bloggers do we all picked our fav spots to feature our outfits and take pics and pics and pics! My outfit matched the colors of the scenery perfectly total coincidence by the way! I am obsessed with these shorts they match everything I own and create a casual earthy look especially with my new go to booties by OTBT! After a ghost town lunch and a jug of water we got back on the bus headed toward Vegas, a little snooze before an incredible adventure at MAGIC was much needed!

Top 9 most inspirational on Daily Buzz Style this year
I am so honored to be part of the one year celebration of Daily Buzz Style through this months 9x9. It took me on a journey through last years fashion and style highlights brought to us by Daily Buzz Style. Clicking through each top 9 curation I noticed the ones I am drawn to the most are the ones I drew inspiration from when they were published! Coachella style obviously got me to purchase my ticket, fashion week cause I love nothing more than reading about it and amping myself up for it, which we are in that very time again right now. Super obsessed with all nail art posts and definitely tried out the ombre sparkles right away on my vacay in Switzerland at the time. Daily Buzz Style always brings us the top trending highlights and it is just so much fun seeing such all the different brilliant bloggers share their take on each of them. Of course always in love with interior design top 9's but this beach house one looked most inviting, its all about the blue and white to make your home feel beachy cool. Love you DBS!

MAGIC and Project discoveries
So excited to finally get to share my first installment of MAGIC pictures. This past week has been absolutely nuts, if anyone has been following me on instagram and or following our MAGIC bloggers ultimate hashtag #roadtovegas you will see the whirl wind we all went on in Vegas for the trade show. It was an incredible experience! So much to share, I'm splitting up all my pics and thought the first fun thing to post would be a couple highlights of what I found wandering around from booth to booth. From the top, I found at Pool an amazing LA jewelry designer by the name of Devon Pavlovits who without a doubt we will be seeing more of this year! Trust me on this one! Next up a total obsession with this tee and basics line called Cotton Citizen, their fabrics and silhouettes could pretty much rule my closet all year round. Pour la Victoire is a special one that caught my eye the brand obviously is drooled over by many shoe lovers in our world but I am also completely in love with their rebranding. Their newest collection will come to you in the most luxurious shoe box ever, their Fall campaign is debuting at FNO in september and is not to be missed! Totally excited to see this brand develop and gain even more momentum in the shoe industry. Vancouver based labels Kersh and Press, caught my eye for Spring 2013 with their beautiful lace embroidery pieces that are sprinkled throughout their collection, especially this dress... I mean I am counting down the days until I can wear that to, ummm Coachella! Prints had a huge presence in every denim booth, Vigoss did it right with prints and embroidery and a huge fun and fresh Spring collection. Pastels are going no where in 2013 and my fav auzzies Talulah and SOMETHING ELSE have made sure to prove that. Flowy dresses and collar details are on trend and I am loving every piece. SOMETHING ELSE also always blows me away with their prints they are designed in house and are always such a stand out for me, watch out for galaxy prints in your closets in 2013 girls! Then there is Dream Collective, the perfect neck,arm and ring party is calling for me with this LA based brand, loving these collar necklaces that are giving me a bit of an african vibe, and their turquoise rings are just perfect! Thats it for my first updates to make you guys excited for Spring 2013!!!

Nasty Gal lookbook "Wild Child"
Model: Anja Konstantinova
Photography: Paul Trapani
Nasty Gal's do it better always! This blond bombshell is the perfect face for this road trip inspired lookbook. Anja has such cool poses, looks stunning in everything and makes me want to go platinum blond...! Favorite piece in this book is the Lisa Maree exclusive crochet crop for NG. I love how easy it would just fit in my wardrobe and totally stay there and in use all the time till next Summer. Is it just me or is everything around me telling me to go on a road trip to cool places with pretty teal colored houses and wide open spaces...! Next Summer its on the list of to do's.

Everything is fun about a Summer weekend. Waking up to blue sky and opening the window to find that it is already the same temperature as inside, there is something about that just makes me feel like I am in a tropical place away from everything else thats real when its hot out. Tees and shorts are on number one rotation right now and this Morning Warrior cropped tee is so perfect, instead of pairing it with the usual cut offs I thought these ah-mazing One Teaspoon leather fringe things would do the trick of spicing it up a bit. These heels by new fav Messeca are my new go to's for casual day dress up, loving the colors and can't wait to see whats to come from this NYC based brand.
