Hometown Tour: Favorite Spots in Phoenix

The past week has been a whirlwind for hubby and I.  We bought our first house, closed on a Friday and moved in by Sunday! In the middle of all of it, Julianne Hough’s public relations rep asked me if I could write a hometown article about my favorite places in Phoenix.  Say what??!! I was so ecstatic!! Check out the article below or go straight to her site.

Hi friends! My name is Melissa Moore, the blogger behind a Phoenix, AZ lifestyle blog called Stylista Fitness.  If it’s your first time in Phoenix, I’m here to share my favorite spots to shop, have a bite to eat and get your beauty on.  

Although, my original hometown is Los Angeles, Phoenix has been my home for the last twelve years.  I’m proud to show you what we have to offer and give you a sneak peek to some cute places around town.  As far as weather goes, summer can get pretty hot but the rest of the

year is sunny and almost always in the 70s.  Hope you enjoy the spots I picked out!

Favorite Cafe: Luci’s at the Orchard

We all know the best way to start the day touring a city is with coffee and food in your stomach.  Luci’s at the Orchard is your picture perfect spot for this.  Not only do they have an extensive breakfast and lunch menu, they have an outdoor open, airy space to enjoy your food in.
