Shop Arizona Local Spotlight: State Forty Eight

Adam and I were nineties kids, so naturally, the first thing he thought of when I started taking his picture and telling him to model was Zoolander, and that's when the movie quotes started coming out! 

"Just because we have chiseled abs and stunning features, it doesn't mean that we too can't not die in a freak gasoline fight accident!" and "It's that damn Hansel! He's so hot right now!"

And that's when hilarity ensued. We tried really hard to keep it together enough to snap some semi-serious pictures of each other, and luckily we got a few we could use. Maybe I'll feel brave enough to share some of the blooper pictures with you, but not today! Today, I've partnered with State Forty Eight to feature another awesome, Arizona local business you can shop with this holiday season!

State Forty Eight sent us a package of a bunch of really fun shirts, and these two were our absolute favorites. Even though Adam didn't graduate from Arizona State University like I did, he still embraces the Sun Devil life. I think this maroon and gold tee would make for an awesome gift for an ASU fan!

As for me, I am just obsessed with Arizona in general. If I've said it once, I've probably said it a million times: I was definitely born on the wrong side of the country; growing up on the East coast just felt...wrong. The people weren't "my people," and everyone up there is just so cranky all the time. I am all about living a positive life and enjoying my sunshine--ever since I moved to Arizona 8 years ago, I've embraced anything and everything that this grand ole state has to offer. My favorite shirt from State Forty Eight is this Arizona state flag tee!

Below you can see me almost losing my straight face--I'm fairly certain Adam was still quoting Zoolander right here, and I was just trying to keep it together. "Moisture is the essence of wetness, and wetness is the essence of beauty."
