I was out to eat lunch yesterday and due to it being a busy time of the day, it was easier to sit in the bar area; plus it’s way more fun to people watch in the bar. In walks this lady and all I could think of was Atlantic City here I come! (Don’t get me wrong I am slightly partial to NJ, but still, come on!) So she walks in with a floral, sparkle, torn up top, silver metallic gladiator sandals and her hair is so big and teased back, all I could think of was ‘how many cans of Aqua Net did that take?!’ To top it off, and save the best for last, were the rhinestone knee length leggings! Wow! There were so many rhinestones on that spandex I thought, ‘Oh my gosh she had found my long lost Bedazzler! Can I please have it back, JK!, You can keep it!’ There were so many crystals on there she looked like an out-of-control disco ball! I thank for the entertaining lunch, but this is definitely a fashion DON’T! I think the Bedazzler went out when I lost it 20 years ago.

It’s early August, and one of the most amazing things about Arizona summers, are the storms; better known as Monsoon Season. Tonight, I am sitting on my couch in my living room and can hear the wind howling, the thunder pounding, the lighting flashing through the windows and it is all echoing through my fireplace. I then remembered of some pictures, a friend took, of the famous Arizona storms and our lightening and had to share them. Even though the summers in AZ are absolutely brutal they are made incredible by the magnificent storms.
The smell of the desert rain and the lightening flashing through the sky will stay etched in my memory for all eternity. And I just had to share it with you.
