The Current [ 5 ] Favorites

March 18, 2016

We thought it would be fun to start a new series on the blog discussing our five current FAVORITE items. It doesn’t have to be fashion or beauty related, but can range from food to music to anything really.

I love seeing what other people are loving at the moment because we love trying out different products, food, and fashion trends!

So here it goes, each of our Current [5] Favorites:

[ TEE ]

1. Cookie Dough Cafe


Sooo, this was on Shark Tank and became super popular because it is absolutely delicious!!!  It is called The Cookie Dough Cafe and is just cookie dough simply meant to be eaten with a spoon-not baked.  I cannot stop eating it!  I bought it at The Fresh Market and decided to try the Monster and Oreo flavors both of which are so yummy!

2. Backpack Purses

I really fell in love with the idea of backpack purses especially after they became super trendy in Hollywood.  I never loved carrying a purse, especially when shopping, so being able to be super stylish and carry tons of stuff while not even realizing I have a purse, made me really love this idea of getting a backpack purse!  Aldo has some cute styles for reasonable prices!!

3. ColourPop Lippie Stix

Kat is the one that has been using Colour Pop lip sticks and is loving them!  I never typically wear anything but lip gloss, but because she was raving about this brand, I thought I’d give it a try!  This is a nude color called Aquarius and it is stunning and goes with everything!

4. Distressed Denim

Lately, I really just can’t get enough of distressed jeans especially black ones!  Of course I always make sure they’re high-waisted because that’s more comfy!  I just think the rips keep you in style but still can look nice if there aren’t too many rips and tears!  Asos has a wide variety of colors in distressed denim for reasonable prices!

5. Goombay Smash {Drink}


With the warmer months coming, I really love a nice tropical drink- that’s strong of course haha.  Bahama Breeze actually makes this drink but you can make it at home and it tastes just as good!  It’s a mix of coconut rum, spiced rum, apricot brandy, and orange and pineapple juice.  My mouth is watering as i’m typing this- yes it’s that good!

1. Lace-Up Sandals

Screen Shot 2016-03-17 at 11.15.25 AMScreen Shot 2016-03-17 at 11.15.39 AM

Last year I kept eyeing the Steve Madden Werkit sandals, but could not get myself to spend $60 on a flat sandal.

This year I jumped on the trend before the warm weather hit to find some super affordable and cute lace-up options. Both of these pairs are from Charlotte Russe and I am obsessssed with them. They are comfy and exactly what I wanted at a fraction of the price.

2. Western Accents

I’ve been loving how Western style pieces are coming into play. I can’t wait to pair some of these options with some denim shorts and relaxed T’s or tank tops for Spring & Summer.

3. Daily Planner

I’ve been loving using my planner this year. I know that does not sound like a  super exciting favorite, but every year I buy a planner in January and then pretty much lose it around this time of year.

This year I’ve been tracking my workout goals, blog goals, any events I have coming up and I swear I feel more organized and put together. Andddd I write with my favorite colored pens, so that just makes life that much prettier.

4. Multigrain Tortilla Chips

Screen Shot 2016-03-17 at 11.39.59 AM

Now food is always a favorite of mine, but since I’ve been trying to be healthier this year I am always on the look out for a healthier version of things that I love. Tortilla chips are probably my favorite chip and even though these are Multigrain and made with brown rice, flax, are gluten free, and every other healthy adjectives I could use they are sooooo good. Just add some mango salsa and I’m in heaven.

5. Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel

Screen Shot 2016-03-17 at 11.45.33 AM

Now I used to suck at moisturizing my skin, mainly because I am super oily and felt like I didn’t need to. Obviously I was wrong haha and I was just making my skin produce more oil.

I love this gel because it absorbs so quickly but still keeps my skin soft and moisturized. I put it on underneath my makeup and I’m good to go!

Let us know some of your current favorites! We love trying new products, food, and trends!

S-P-R-I-N-G Forward

March 14, 2016

Spring is right around the corner, and with that so is Easter!  Of course living in Florida, it pretty much feels like summer here already, haha.  So, Kat and I wanted to share with you some of our Spring looks!  We loveee florals, pastels, crop tops, lace and I even wear black as one of my Spring ensembs!


Just like other fashionistas, we associate pastels with Spring just because they’re so light and remind us of all the beautiful flowers ready to bloom!  Kat chose to wear one her fav tops from Marshalls in that soft blush color.  And who could blame her!  It is so clean looking and has that touch of soft pink that makes it so elegant.


She styled the dressier top with some distressed boyfriend jeans from Nordstrom!  It really gives her outfit that shabby chic look!


She paired her ensemb with some lovely faux snake skin heels from Aldo that are just to die for.  The nude is classic but the pattern really spices the whole outfit up!


I know black isn’t technically a Spring color, but it truly is one of my fav colors to wear.  And I wanted to show off my new black and white printed Vince Camuto tank that I bought from Marshalls for just $10!!


I paired it with one of my fav pairs of black high waisted skinny jeans from TJMaxx to keep it classic looking!


As for my shoes they are legit the most comfortable heels I have ever worn.  I literally could wear them all day everyday just like sneakers.  They are black leather Vince Camuto heels with a bit of a wedge.  I found them at Ross and am so glad I didn’t pass them up!


Kat and I really just love sharing some of our looks with you and are truly excited for all the Spring clothing items breaking out of the closet!  There’s not just one specific color or style that you must wear for Spring so that’s why its exciting to mix it up and just wear some of your fav styles or colors!

[Traveling] in style

February 18, 2016

Both Tee and I have some upcoming trips planned. She’s heading to Houston next week, and I’ll be heading to Chicago in March!

We both loveeee to travel and explore new cities. Before our impending trips we wanted to share with you some of our tips for traveling in style, while still being comfortable. Trust us, you can have the best of both worlds!


No one wants to be sitting on a five hour flight in an uncomfortable esemb. Here are some of our favorite pieces & necessities we always wear//have on a trip.

A scarf is an essential for a flight in my book! No matter if you’re traveling somewhere cold or warm, it is perfect to wrap around you on a chilly flight, use as a blanket, or even a pillow.

Now I know not everyone is obsessed with leggings, but I seriously am an avid wearer. I find them so perfect for a flight because they are comfy as all else and can be dressed up or down depending on how you want to style them.

If leggings are not your thing, denim works perfect as the basis for your travel ensemb. Now I don’t suggest your tightest jeans if you’ll be sitting on an airplane for a few hours, but a cute and comfy pair will be just perfect!

These three pieces are pretty interchangable but serve the same basic function.

It’s nice to just have a lightweight piece to throw over you if you get chilly {which I always do} on a flight. Because these are lightweight they won’t take up a ton of room and can easily be tied around your waist.

Now I’m a converse girl and that is my go-to comfy but cute sneaker. I love wearing them for travel because if I need to run to my gate {which unfortunately has happened before} I can do it!

All of these options are stylish but will allow you to run around the airport with ease.

We hope our favorite travel style tips help you for your next adventure! Let us know some of your favorite pieces to wear when you travel!

{VALENTINE’S DAY} outfit inspo

February 5, 2016

People have a love/hate relationship with Valentine’s Day. And I completely understand why.

Valentine’s Day can come with a lot of pressure, whether you’re single or attached! But I like to think of Valentine’s in a different way:

I like to think of the positives: CANDY {Reese’s Hearts anyone?!}, tons of cute heart print items, and celebrating those you love-whether it is a significant other, friend, family member, dog {yes, I have definitely bought my dog a Valentine}.

{BTW how cute are those conversation heart balloons?! Find out how to DIY them here!}

I loveee getting dressed up for any occasion, I thought it be fun to share some different outfit inspiration for Valentine’s Day regardless of what your plans may be!

New Year- New Body (We hope)

January 4, 2016

Sooo, most people who partake in making a New Year’s resolution often decide that one of them should be to get in shape by either working out, eating healthier, or both.  It would be great if doing these things would be as easy as saying you will, haha, but typically work, food, and alcohol get in the way!


Kat and I really just wanted to try to eat better and work out during the week and then on Friday and Saturday’s allow ourselves to drink and eat what we want.  Honestly, you shouldn’t deprive yourself completely of what you enjoy.  Allowing yourself to let loose on the weekend will hopefully make it easier to stick with the healthy eating and workouts during the week.


Since I HATE working out but love physical activities, I am choosing to play basketball and bike as my workout and possibly do a workout video known as Kettleworx (which I actually don’t mind.)

Kat has been trying these 20-30 minute YouTube videos as her workout routine.  Funnily enough even though I don’t enjoy working out I probably do own more workout clothes than someone with a gym membership.  I just love how comfy they are and how easy it is to just throw them on to run errands, walk the dogs, or lounge around in.


  One of my fav stores to buy workout gear in is Bealls.  I seriously can’t find a better deal anywhere else.  Although Marshall’s, TJMaxx, and Ross have tons of workout wear, it isn’t as good of a deal as at Bealls.

//Dressing for NYE 2015//

December 29, 2015

Saying a big goodbye to 2015 and looking forward to ringing in 2016!

Since the Holidays in general really crept up on us, neither of us bought anything special to wear on New Year’s this year.

So we’re showing you how we pulled pieces from our closet in order to create some fun and affordable ensembs!

//Pop of Sequins//


These sequined leggings are so comfy, but look perfect for NYE! Pairing them with a comfy longline sweater tones down the sequins a bit if you’re wearing these to a house party or something more casual.

~Amazing Gifts for Men Under $20~

December 1, 2015

Shopping for presents around the holidays is difficult as it is but not knowing what to get someone and dealing with the crowds and expensive price tags, can really make the experience unenjoyable.  Shopping for men can make things even more stressful because either they never want anything or they don’t know what they want because they never go out shopping. For these reasons, we decided to make an under $20 gift guide for men in hopes that it will make your lives a bit easier!

Not to sound redundant but every TJ Maxx and Marshalls (no matter the location) has a men’s section around Christmas and a section with bar utensils containing tons of great options for great prices. Everything from whiskey glasses to poker sets to beer card games can be found at these stores. They can be great for brothers, dads, husbands or even just guy friends young and old.

A great gift for only $12.99 at Marshalls are a set of two diamond shaped whiskey glasses that lay tilted on their side. I found them online for $16. If you just Google ‘diamond shaped whiskey glasses’ several listings come up, but I have yet to see one priced as low as the Marshalls price and most of the online stores that carry the glasses are located in Europe so there is a bit of a price difference.

//Holiday Gift Guide Featuring: Gifts $20 & Under//

November 24, 2015

As we said in our last gift guide, we loveee shopping for gifts. But sometimes you’re on the hunt for those cute little gifts or stocking stuffers and don’t want to spend a ton of money! My best friend and I always say we’ve been friends for so many years that we’ve gotten each other everyyy gift at this point. Now we just love picking up something cute and something that we know the other could use!

Sometimes the meaningful gifts that don’t cost a lot are the best and most loved. Here are some amazing gift items we found for your friend, sister, coworker, etc.

//Holiday Gift Guide featuring: MOM//

November 19, 2015

The holidays are soon approaching (crazy I know), which means all the stores will be packed full of people searching for gifts. Now, you don’t want to be stuck with what’s left so it’s better to shop earlier rather than later so you have some time to peruse the stores merchandise, find the right gift, and hopefully find it at a good price!

Kat and I typically find that our parents never want anything for the holidays except their typical answer of wanting to spend it with us. Of course even if they say they don’t want anything or need anything we always want to find them something special. Especially because they always make sure we have everything we want and need and often forget about treating themselves.

This gift guide is here to help you find the perfect gift for your mom or that mother figure in your life! Continue Reading

Ross- Take a Peek!

November 10, 2015

As we mentioned before, we love Marshall’s and TJ Maxx but somehow Ross seems to be at the back of peoples’ minds or even completely forgotten when it comes to buying nice things for great prices. My sister, Kathryn, doesn’t frequent Ross near as much as I do, but it doesn’t mean they don’t have as much to offer as Marshalls or TJ Maxx.

I will say I typically don’t shop at Ross for clothes, although I tend to glance at the clearance section while I’m there and I have found some super nice stuff like Michael Kors jeans for $20 and a Marc New York jacket for $25. It’s always a good idea to quickly look just to see what they have. For instance, I even found several pairs of J Brand jeans there tucked in the clearance racks. Hopefully, this post will inspire you to give Ross another chance because you never know what deals are hiding there! Continue Reading
