Stay-cation

This weekend was so nice! I recently had what I’d like to call a “stay-cation.” This weekend consisted of:

1. Verve Coffee Roasters

This place is beyond cute! I’m glad I discovered this little gem. The inside is perfect for a study session(currently my school life), and you’re surrounded by plants outside and it’s perfect on a beautiful day. Pictured above is the juice flight. Usually, I would say juice isn’t so fun, but for the most part, the juices in this flight were pretty tasty. My favorite was the coconut juice (the white) at the end. On the side were dried mulberries which were pretty tasty and acted as a nice cleanser between each juice. 🙂

2. The Last Bookstore

Probably the most “art-sy” bookstore of ALL time. Something about this place is not only about the books, but about the surroundings that make it different from the majority of your average bookstores.

3. Larchmont Village

Larchmont Bungalow is a favorite because they’re known for their red and blue velvet pancakes. I know what you’re thinking. Honestly, need I say more?! Their outdoor patio is super cute and cozy and perfect for a breakfast date.

On the same street is Salt and Straw, one of my FAVORITE ice cream joints. And trust me when I say, I LOVE ice cream. Their seasonal flavors are to die for, so come during their specials if you get a chance. As far as regular flavors go, I recommend the Almond Brittle and Salted Caramel. Happy Nomz! 🙂

Lastly, comes the outfit! Due to the warm weather, I wore my new favorite dress from Free People paired with fringe sandals, a turquoise necklace, and my Chloe purse.

Fringe Friday

HAPPY FRIDAY! 🙂

As you can guess by the title, we’ve both been a little obsessed with fringe lately. Not only that, but it’s also super trendy. Whether in heel, sandal, or clothing form, we are obsessed! OBSESSED. I just got my Zara fringe heels today and I’m already in love. Here are some of our other top fringe picks when it comes to shoes.

All Gold Everything

I’ve always been all about accessories. Here are my latest pickups from Madewell! 🙂

1. Bracelet 

I wear more gold than I do silver, but I usually find it hard to find an everyday gold piece. I FINALLY found it. This bracelet makes a statement, but just enough to the point where you can still wear it everyday.

2. Necklace

This necklace was such a steal at this price! I love the fact that it’s simple, but the fringe tassel makes it a little bit more fun! Perfect to jazz up a simple black dress.

What’s In My Bag?

My every day bag is usually some sort of tote because I carry a TON of things. Probably not on everyone’s list of essentials, but I feel incomplete if I don’t have these in my bag with me.

1. Sanitizer

If you know me, you know I sanitize ALL the time. I actually avoided the flu/sinus cold for about a year and a half and I thank sanitizer for that. I’m not sure if that’s the real reason, but I’m gonna put the two together anyway, haha. My favorite sanitizer at the moment is Jessica Alba’s Honest Company hand sanitizer spray. I like it more than traditional gels because it has a light scent and it’s not drying because it has aloe in it! Plus, it’s all natural! 🙂 You can purchase it stores like Target or Nordstrom here.

2. My Kate Spade Makeup Bag

It’s probably a whole separate blog to talk about what’s in my makeup bag, so I’ll tell you what I mainly carry. I carry a mattifying powder, my contouring kit, a bright pink lipstick and a red lipstick, and a makeup brush.

3. My iPhone

I recently got the iPhone 6 and let me tell you about the picture quality. It may even be at a tie to my Canon. Plus, I have to post to our insta 😉

4. Perfume

So I have a habit of spraying myself because it gets SO hot in SoCal. A nice, floral scent makes me feel refreshed so I  always carry it with me. I’m currently using D&G 3 L’IMPERATRICE, but I’m thinking of switching to Miss Dior Bloom Bouquet or Chloe Love Story soon. Any thoughts or suggestions on those?

5. Floss

You all probably think I’m crazy for this one, and yes, I do have an odd obsession with teeth. But I’ve recently added this to my purses because I have this weird phobia that I always have a green piece of lettuce in my front teeth. Better safe than sorry! 😛

6. Headphones

I’m usually studying at a coffee shop and sometimes that can get pretty loud. I always carry a set of headphones with me so I can tune the world out with some instrumentals, a cup of coffee, and my work.

7 . Sunnies

It gets super bright and sometimes I don’t have time for mascara so I cover up with sunglasses. Currently, I’ve been wearing my reflective Ray Bans like these here.

All About Dem Nails

Good morning, everybody! We hope you are all enjoying this lovely Friday morning. As promised, here is the tutorial on how I did my nails. I honestly came up with the idea while studying for a midterm (procrastinating as usual, hah). I am now totally hooked on using a toothpick for all my nail designs because it just gives the nails a cool edge. Without further ado, I hope you like the tutorial and have an amazing weekend.

IMG_9318 Step 1:

Apply your basecoat to your nails. Gellous Nail Gel is my favorite basecoat to use because it lasts over a week and makes your polish look like you had a gel manicure.

Step 2:

Next, choose your base color. I’m wearing OPI Eurso Euro which is a gorgeous purplish/blue shade!

Step 3:

Choose your nail color for the design. I chose Revlon’s Sure Thing. This probably the coolest step. First, dip the toothpick in your preferred nail polish, then tap the toothpick onto paper (to ensure you don’t get a big white dot) and with a light hand, glide the toothpick over the nail in any direction you wish and repeat. BOOM!

Step 4:

Add your favorite topcoat once your nails are dry. You now have edgy, cool nails!

Good Girls go to Heaven

FINALLY! Thank goodness for this 3 day weekend. Hello, we are back! We apologize about the lack of blogging. It has been so busy for us. School has been SO insane for us. You can guess that we have been busy, busy, and even more busy. However, this weekend was a bit of a fun one for us because we finally got to do something that normal people our age do… Go to a concert. That’s probably not a big deal to most of you, but we don’t have a lot of time to do fun things like this too often.

We started our night at the Anaheim Packing House for dinner. You’ve probably seen us post pics of this place on insta. We just can’t get enough of it. It is seriously so cute. Essentially, it’s a two level building that has a lot of different options for food, dessert, and even drinks. It is absolutely perfect for the foodie. We went to Georgia for dinner and it was absolutely DELISH. We both kind of have a thing for southern food and we are actually hoping to visit New Orleans soon (fingers crossed). We both got the jambalaya with rice and the garlic fries (pictured below). NOMZ.

Then we went to our concert. I don’t think we could have been any more excited for Snakehips if we tried (their SoundCloud here).

Strangely enough, we learned that at 22, we are quite the “grandmas,” haha. Despite the insane crowd, Snakehips performed amazingly! Trust us when we say that the link to their soundcloud can’t even compare to them live. That was our fun little Saturday GNO. What are you all up to this weekend?
