Daddy-Daughter Coffee Date

It's really funny how I've learned to appreciate Arizona since I moved back from New York. I really love it here. Having family and old friends nearby is really good for me. The best part of being back is having time to explore. Yes, somehow between school, work and other commitments, I've found lots of time to try out new places and find new hangouts.
One of my favorites is The Coffee Shop at Agritopia in Gilbert. It's an adorable place next to Joe's Farm Grill (who serves up the best burger and homemade lemonade ever). 


But really, how lovely is it to see cacti and grass together in one landscape?

This place is seriously the best, though. They won Cupcake Wars, they have great soy lattes and their cupcakes have sparkles... Who can resist that?!


How adorable is that yellow cupcake? It's so much more sparkly in real life, but it's still just so cute here.


And for the not so adorable, here's my OOTD. I like to call this look "Dani being lazy with how she dresses for school because she's changing for work anyway". Wordy, but it gets the point across. 
I do like my scarf though, quite a lot.

So, music is a big part of my life and I feel like I should share a little of that with you, so that is definitely in the works.
For now, I've gotta post these songs that I CANNOT get out of my head. Mainstream or not, I love them.
{Home-- Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros}
{Ho Hey-- The Lumineers}
{Little Talks-- Of Monsters and Men}
{Everybody Talks-- Neon Trees}
{The A Team-- Ed Sheeran}
{Why Do You Let Me Stay Here-- She & Him}


Anyway, I like this whole blogging thing. It's good to get things down on paper.

Hello there!

So, I'm not exactly new to the whole blogging scene, but it's definitely been a while. I had a blog called Tulips to Kiss You With, but I didn't feel like it fit me anymore, so I stopped blogging on it. You know, that whole "self-discovery" as a teenager thing. This is Arizona me. Which is who I want to be for now.
This dress is from Downeast Basics and is my absolute love. It's so comfortable!

Love in the form of a Chai Latte.

I'm already an instagram hoarder, so keeping up my blog won't be too hard. I've just been really inspired lately and have decided that I want to stand for something great and this is going to be it.
