TRAVEL // PHOENIX

Hello! I hope you had a great weekend and if you’re American, I hope your Thanks Giving was as brilliant as mine was!!  We spent five glorious days in Phoenix with great friends, I was sad when the time came to leave.  Have you ever been to Phoenix?  I loved it!  We hiked amongst the saguaros, ate the most delicious food, picked fresh oranges and grapefruits from the garden every morning, experienced our first ever Thanks Giving, visited the Desert Botanical Gardens at night and even made it to the Phoenix flea market where I met Jenny from Confessions Of A Hairstylist, and had my hair braided! We squeezed a lot into our five days and can’t wait to go back!!
