Cheers Valentine!

February 9, 2017

Now you know we’re all about a festive bev, especially one that involves champagne or prosecco. A drink involving bubbles? We’re in!!

So we had to share this fun and festive drink that would be perfect for a Galentine’s celebration or a cute Vday date night. Bonus-it is suuuper easy to make!

The basis for this drink is the ice cubes. Buuut they’re not just your average cube my friend, they are CHAMPAGNE ice cubes!


Ingredients

Strawberries, sliced or diced

Champagne or sparkling wine

Ice Cube Molds or Tray (we went the festive route with these from Amazon)


Directions

Fill the ice cube trays with the sliced/diced strawberries

Pour the champagne or sparkling wine over the fruit into the trays

Freeze for about 4-6 hours or until solid enough for the cubes to pop out of the tray (the champagne will not freeze 100% but will be solid enough to remove and use!)

Add to a glass of champagne or white wine and enjoy! The strawberry champagne cubes added such a nice refreshing flavor to our champs that we will definitely be making these all the time!

P I N S P O {Blake Lively}

January 23, 2017

Blake Lively always has amazing style! She is gorgeous and always pulls off unique pieces so effortlessly. We gathered inspiration from two of her looks and styled them for waaay less!

//LOOK #1

We loved this effortlessly chic street style look! An all black look with that gorgeous tan leather jacket is just so good.

Tee styled the look with a black long sleeve t-shirt and skinny jeans. She subbed in black boots instead of loafers to deal with the chillier winter temps!

She added some pretty gold accessories to finish off the look.

Black denim: HudsonSimilar

Black Boots: Lucky BrandSimilar

Blake’s Loafers: Similar

LOOK #2//

I am obsessed with this fun look Blake styled during her pregnancy. From the big curls to the statement accessories, she rocked this navy dress!

This navy dress from Bailey Blue Clothing has some fun details just like Blake’s! A scoop back and pretty layers takes your standard navy dress to the next level.

BLACK as a STAPLE

January 12, 2017

You know how everyone says every girl should own a LBD (little black dress) well I think everyone should own a black top and bottom of some sort too!

Colorful wardrobes are essential because you have variable options, and it’s nice to have that added pop of color in your ensemble.  However, no matter the occasion, season, setting, or body type, BLACK is essential in every wardrobe.

It literally will go with anything, making it super versatile!

Whether it be black pants, shoes, tee-shirts, suits, jackets, sweaters, or blouses- it honestly is a ‘color’ that looks amazing on everyone and can easily be paired with any type of outfit.

Bonus– I always feel slimmer and more sleek when I wear black haha.

Kat went for a dressier look with this black knit sweater that featured a Peter Pan collar.

New Year New Clothes {featuring Rosegal}

January 10, 2017

Of course shopping for new clothes is more like a weekly thing than a holiday one haha, but the New Year just so happened to be the perfect time to pick out some fun, new items to style! Kat and I were lucky enough to get to pick out items from Rosegal.

I don’t know what it is about button up shirts, but I really could wear them all the time.  Maybe it’s the collar or the fact that they can be casual or dressed up, but I just LOVE them!

I gravitated toward this button up on the site mainly because it had the most adorable, sequined dinosaur patches!

It’s a very light, demin shirt, but what makes it so unique are the colorful dinos! Bonus it’s under $23!

It’s super comfy, and I knew it would be something special to add to my collection of button ups!

Shockingly, we are experiencing some cold fronts in Florida which allows us to sport some super cozy knits, sweaters, and coats!

Kat decided to pick out this super soft sweater under $24!

It’s a pretty grey color, and it’s long enough so that it can be styled with leggings.

It’s also a bit oversized which makes it really comfortable and warm-perfect for those temperature drops!

Honestly, who can resist a comfy sweater!

We definitely recommend you checking out Rosegal because we are in love with our pieces.  Also check out their Instagram for some awesome style inspiration. The quality is good and of course the prices are really affordable!

  

Although we received these items free of charge, all opinions are our own.

{HOSTING} Golden Globes Party Edition

January 5, 2017

Who will be best dressed this year?!

Now that the new year is here, award season is fast approaching. In our household it has always been a tradition to watch the award shows with our mom.

We would always get excited to see all of the fashion on the red carpet and see the who’s who of Hollywood at these events.

For us the Golden Globes and the Oscars are always the main events of award show season. Because Sunday is the Golden Globes and Jimmy Fallon is hosting {love him!} we thought it be fun to share some hosting tips for your own Golden Globes party!

WHAT TO DO

How cute are these fun Bingo cards?! Print some out for your guests while you watch the show and see who’s first to get 5 in a row! {Could also be a fun drinking game!}

Print out ballots for your guests to complete prior to the show and reveal who the winner is at the end of the night!

WHAT TO EAT & DRINK

I love the idea of a popcorn bar!

What better snack is there to celebrate movies & TV with than popcorn?!

Supply your guests with sweet and savory toppings ranging from parmesan cheese to Rasinets!

BRIT + CO has a great tutorial for setting up your popcorn station!

As you know we are champagne and prosecco lovers so how could we host a Golden Globes shindig without a little champs!

I found this golden cocktail recipe on A Beautiful Mess and knew it would be perfect for the night!

It combines prosecco and grapefruit juice. Just add a little edible gold glitter or sprinkles to the rim to add the Golden Globes touch!

WHAT TO WEAR

Now you could totally go all out and have your guests come as their favorite celeb or come all dressed up in a gorg Golden Globes worthy gown, buuuut in my opinion I’m all about watching in comfort.

Loving all of these adorable PJ options!

   

Can’t wait to watch the Globes Sunday with some delicious popcorn & cocktails!

Happy Watching!

NYE {casual} INSPO

December 28, 2016

We love getting dressed up for NYE-the sequins, glitter, gold everything! But not always do your plans revolve around a dressy event.

We wanted to share some New Year’s Eve looks that were leaning on the casual side while still adding some fun, festive touches.

A denim shirt is a staple in most people’s wardrobes.

It can be dressed up or down and works perfectly for this occasion. Dressed up with some black skinny pants, nude heels, and few fun accessories make it the perfect basis for a casual NYE look.

Tee added a fun black velvet bow and a gold tassel necklace to amp up her look!

Sequin leggings are perfect for New Year’s Eve. I am loving these ones!

I love pairing gold with more neutral tones! This green flowy blouse and lightweight trench {under $15!!} make for the perfect additions to keep this look casual.

I’m obsessed with these heels from Payless! They are so comfortable and under $30!

We hope you have a fun & safe New Year’s Eve!

Cheers to an exciting 2017!
