Update Your Look

Statement Earrings
A predicted top trend for 2017 is statement earrings. Make your look pop with your earring this year with some of my top picks.


Switch your Jacket
A leather jacket in my opinion will always be in but we are seeing a lot of designers switching out their leather fabrics for suede. Suede is like a 5th of the price so I'm not complaining:) Below are some favorites.



Velvet Shoes
We saw a lot of textures gain popularity last year and this year on the runways we saw even more. If you haven't added textures to your closet already you aren't too late. One of my favorite things right now are velvet shoes. It gives an instant update!

I loved reading these questions! I hope I answered all of them! Thanks so much for following and always supporting!

Xx

  Q: What hair extensions do you use?/Color?

A: I use Bombshell extensions. And to be honest... I don't know my color! I didn't know what color to get so I sent in a pic of my hair color and they were able to match it perfectly. I've loved their hair. It lasts a long time and doesn't thin super fast. I've been buying my extensions from them for the last two years. If your hair is similar color to mine and you want my color you can just ask them for what color I get!


Q: What self tanner do you use?

A: Here (spray) and Here (lotion). I get both. One is a lotion and the other is a spray. I like the spray when I can have someone else spray me (Trev) I find that it stays a bit longer but the lotion is amazing too. If you get the lotion don't forget to get a mitt. Nice Salon's use this product for their spray tans, it's just a really great company and I have tried a gazillion self tanners and this has been my favorite. You MUST try it!


Q: How do you do your brows?

A: I use this pencil HERE. I've tried to find a cheaper one that I like just as much and I end up waisting money. I'll actually go through my cheap drugstore ones 4x faster than my mac one so you do get your money's worth. It's not a true pencil which I like, you just twist it up and the point is super super fine so it looks like real brow hair.


Q: What made me leave my previous job and start my own thing?

A: This one was a mixture of things. I didn't have Aniston at the time but I wanted to be able to work from home when we started having kids and that wasn't possible with that job. I thought it would be so cool to be with Trev all day everyday and work together. It was really a ton of things and it all just kinda fell into place and I could go on and on about this topic but to keep it short it was just something I thought of for a long time and I finally just had to do. The timing was right. You can read more about starting and life with our business here


Q: How do we have a red head baby?

A: We have no idea. haha. There's red hair on my side of the family that I never knew about but it's generations and generations back so I guess that's where it came from. I had strawberry blonde when I was little and then it changed to light light blonde so we'll see what happen's with little Aniston's.


Q: Top baby names?

A: I can't say!! haha. Trev and I have our next boy and girl names picked out so we need to start popping more babies out and then you'll know my top baby names ;)


Q: Balancing business/blog/ and fam?

A: I don't have an answer to this one because I haven't figured it out yet. Haha.  We have work days and fun days. And a lot of days with a mix of the two. Everyday is family day for us. Aniston comes to all our meetings with us and we make it work somehow. It's a lot of work but it's a lot of fun. There are times where I'll slip with the blog and not do it as much as I should and times where I don't cook dinner as much as I'd like that week but Trev helps me see the parts that I am doing a good job on and makes me feel better about it. My number one priority is my family, being a wife to Trev and a mom to Aniston. I also have an amazing team behind my business that makes my life wayyy easier!! haha. We love our Shop Stevie fam.


Q: Do I like living in Utah?

A: I love living in UT and I never ever thought I'd say that! Let alone live here and raise a family here.  I'm from CA originally and thought I would never live anywhere else. But I moved to Utah and it's just so fun. It's a fast growing place, there's so many businesses and new things. The people are so nice and genuine. The mountains are unreal! It's cheap to live here compared to CA so anytime we want to escape the cold we just leave for a few days.


Q: Favorite dinner and treat places?

A: Happy Sumo is a favorite dinner place of mine, Trev and I went there on our first date:) I don't like fish so I get the buffalo roll! (it's chicken)
The vanilla bean is my favorite dessert place right now. EVERYTHING is amazing! I love the storm drink and they just added quiche and it's soo good!


Q: Workout/diet?

A: Luckily I have a sis that knows everything about dieting and working out so I just get workouts from her and meal plans. As far as excersise goes I was super active all growing up, I did club swim, ran track, pole vaulted, ran cross country, rock climbed, cycled.. When it comes to working out I'm not good about going to the gym on my own so I need someone like my sis to keep me on it! You can dm her on instagram @meg.price for her meal plans and workouts. Below is an old pic of her progress, she's amazing.

  Q: What Camera do you use? 

A: We have a Cannon 5D Mark iii, HERE!


Q: How do we afford to travel so much?

A:Points! haha we LOVE our venture card, HERE. We did a lot of research and it's the best card out there for travel. You get points with any purchase. I don't believe in going into debt so I don't want to promote a credit card in that way. We use our card as if it were a debit card and use it with every purchase so we can get points. It's really smart to open up a credit card account even if you never use it just so you have some sort of credit for when you want to buy a house or anything. Most of our travel is covered by points and if not we save up and spend our own money. We work CRAZY hard so we can play hard:)


Q: What is the importance/meaing of modesty to you?

A: What a great question! Being modest for me is so many things! Modesty isn't just how you dress, it's the language you use and behavior as well. Growing up I was taught to be modest in how I dressed and I didn't really understand why but I just did it but as I got older and dated I was so grateful that I was taught certain things about modesty. How we dress says things about who we are. It influences the way people act around us and who we attract.  I wanted to attract a guy that was interested in who I was as a person not just my physical appearance. Being modest is a way that I respect my body as a women. I don't need to show off certain parts and things to feel beautiful or get attention. Our bodies are so special, and have a great purpose. They are used to attract and have babies but at a certain time with a certain person. Trev is the only person I feel that needs to see me in those ways.
As a blogger, I don't want other women to compare themselves to me or my body. There are so many different body types and situations out there. We are all made differently and that's a good thing. I hope that I can always make others feel good about themselves!


Q: Did I go to BYU?

A: I didn't but I lived with everyone that did. It's a super fun area and always a lot going on. If you're picking schools, I would go to BYU or a surrounding school in that area. I just think it's a really great place to be and meet people!


Q: Tips for starting a blog?

A: Just start! The biggest thing is starting. Luckily there's tons of companies and photographers around that are willing to collaborate. Take advantage of that! Collaborate as much as you can and try to get reposted on different channels and feeds.

HOTEL REVIEW: This was a last minute hotel and it was great for the price! The breakfast was great! Service was great! Big clean rooms. With a crib, a big room is always so great! It also had a bath which I'm always so shocked by how many hotels don't have baths! Aniston loves her tub time so that was another great surprise when we got there. The location is walking distance to one of our favorite restaurants, Public School. (I tagged it in my last post so see that for details!)

I always look forward to a fresh start each January, especially as I am having holiday vacation withdrawals. Trevor and I have loved looking back on this past year and all the adventures it brought us, and then setting goals to make 2017 even better! 

Trev and I sit down at the start of each year and write down personal goals, business/work goals, family goals, and then list steps and ways to achieve them. I live by a planner and so I like to write down a little reminder in my daily calendar and map out check points. every 3 months I like to review where I'm at on my goals.

Some of my goals this year!!

I would say one of my goals is to have another baby but I can't get Trev on board just yet haha.

Health & Fitness

Work out more. Duh this is everyone's right? haha. I'm just starting with twice a week and if I can do it more, great! But two days a week is more realistic for me to actually achieve it. (I write down the days in my planner so that I actually remember to do it.)

Cut back on sugarI am a huge huge sugar person!! I feel more energized when I eat less sugar so I'm trying to do no sugar throughout the week and my cheat days are Friday, Saturday, Sunday. 

Personal

Personal Motto. This year I really just want to better myself all around. I have a motto that I came up with for the year and it's just kind of a daily reminder to be kind. It's, "Be a Loving and Sweet wife. Be a Kind and Compassionate mom. Forget yourself and think of others." I typed this up and have it saved as my background on my phone so that I'll remember it daily.

Serve othersThis is something I hope I am always doing and in my busy everyday life I need a daily reminder. I took one thing from light the world that was the easiest for me to do:) And wrote it in my planner for each day.

Business Goals

This is a big one for Trev and I and I won't share in depth but we like to set a yearly goal and break it down to a daily measurable goal so that we have a daily reminder to what we're working towards. I know not everyone works so this could be how much you want to save or a specific thing you want to purchase. I love having goals like this with my spouse.

Family Goals

FHE. We like to have what we call family home evenings and every monday night we do something special together as a family. We are usually always together as a family but it's nice to set a time aside to acknowledge the importance of being together, sharing a spiritual thought and learning something new, playing a fun game, making a treat, whatever it may be..

If you’re needing some help already with your resolutions or goals, you’re not alone! Here are a few things I like to do to stick to my goals each year. 

Write them down! I know that’s the first everyone says, but that’s because so few actually do it! It makes you 10 times more likely to achieve your goal when you have written it down! Once you have your list, look at it often. Post it somewhere that you’ll look at it often, and move it every once in a while to refresh your memory. 

Tell others about your goals, so they can help you stay on track.

Keep your goals measurable. It sounds simple, but specifying dates, benchmarks, etc. will help you to meet your goals!

Be sure your goals are realistic! Pace yourself. And when you miss a day, pick back up where you left off! You’re not working toward perfection, you’re working toward a better, happier you!

Here's to 2017!

Xx, Stevie

Stroller

We're in CA this week escaping the cold.  A lot of you saw my snap story and asked if we'd share our favorite places to shop in LA. We spend a ton of time in LA, (we feel like we basically live here) so we have tons and tons of little strips we like to shop and eat but I'll just share some of my top favorites. SHOPPING The Grove- This is a really fun place especially around christmas. My top favorite stores there, pottery barn kids, topshop, zara, nordstrom. We like to eat at cheesecake factory there or the Nordstrom's Restaurant. Santa Monica 3rd Street Promenade - This place is our favorite. They have tons of shops and its walking distance to the pier, we love it! Shopping on Melrose  - We love this strip and we actually love staying in this area too. It's the heart of la for me. I feel like I'm living like a local in this area. The shops can be a little higher end. and we usually always eat at Urth Caffe which I tagged below.   FOOD Public School (We always go to this place when we're near downtown LA. I think it's known for being a cool bar but Trev and I don't drink and it's still a really great place. The fries for an appetizer is super good.. the causes they bring out with the fries is the best partDenver, Vegas, Dallas.. . Barrel and Ashes (This is our favorite place in one of our favorite pockets of LA . It's in Studio City. Studio City is known for their restaurants and we've tried a lot of restaurants there, they are all so tasty but this is hands down our favorite. I'm not a big barbecue fan but this place is amazing. Get the brisket, I get it every time ) Barton G. (all the dishes here are super elaborate!! LIKE CRAZY and you won't ever find anything else like it. They have this cotton candy dessert that is Marie Antoinette's head and it could feed a small village. It's a super fun atmosphere. It's a place that you have to try once. It's pretty pricey and we saw a lot of people just go for the dessert so if you want to go but don't want to spend a ton just go for dessert! And you literally can share one! They are huge!) Urth Cafe (Don't be scared away by the lack of seating or line. This place is super good and we love the Melrose location to eat and shop.)
