I picked up this long, sheer kimono at a sample sale and find it a great thing to toss in my bag when packing. It can make shorts and a tank look much more put together while also covering your skin from the sun or the wind that can sneak in. I grabbed this kimono on the way to Golden Gate Park and was ready for the day.
Fall is our favorite season for so many reasons, the re-introduction of chunky sweaters, the changing of the leaves and most of all pumpkins!

KSFS Media’s Aya Miyazaki recently interviewed us about what we do and why we do it. My hair’s a mess but please ignore that and enjoy the article here!
My friend Liz is in this amazing band, Delta Rae. And I have been meaning to write about them for a while because while their sound it kind of folky, it is super unique and they are one of my favorite bands to see live. Today was the first time that I saw their video for one of my favorite songs called “If I Loved You”. I love it and to make it even better Lindsey Buckingham from Fleetwood Mac helped out with some guitar elements.
They have been experiencing some major success like performing on Jay Leno, Conan, and being a featured artist on VH1. I just have to share this video with you. Please take a few minutes to watch it, I know you will love it too!
You can’t not watch Almost Famous and think about how you’d love to channel Penny Lane. She plays such a bold, free, and sensitive character while at the same time keeping up with the fashion Joneses. You really only need a few simple things to bring a Penny Lane outfit to life. Grab some wide leg denim, a sparkly tank, some good shades, and a fur jacket or sweater. This sweater I found in a sale bin at the Limited for $1.99… I can’t even believe what a steal it was!
Fur, sequins, and some flared denim are all you really need to channel Penny Lane for the every day look. Happy Friday everyone!
We are such fans of colors and convenience. Sometimes, you run out the door and don’t have time to throw on your new necklace or rings that you wanted to. However, you can always look fun and stylish by pairing these fun nail polishes with fun purses. We did some color matching and think these are all great color pairings for Spring!
(We love this hot pink neon polish with the cobalt blue purse from Urban Outfitters)
Spring is on it’s way!
Since it hasn’t been too rainy, I’ve been trying to enjoy the outdoors on the weekends. The trick to this is layering your clothing because naturally you will get warm from a hike but it’s not worth sucking up the cold at the beginning in just a long sleeve shirt. Adding a warm beanie or ear covering fleece headband can help too. I hit some East Bay trails this past weekend with my mom and we really enjoyed the colors and paths that the hiking trails had to offer. The same trails can look different throughout all the seasons.
It’s always nice to get exercise with fresh air. I’d prefer working out outdoors over a gym any day. I can’t wait for the nights when it’s light out longer and I can enjoy being outdoors after work. There are a TON of trail heads throughout the bay area that are worthy of checking out. You never know, there could be one right in your back yard!
On my last solo lunch before Chelsea returned, I decided I’d hike up the hill to the magnificent Coit Tower – YOLO! We often hike up there on our lunches because the views are ridiculously beautiful and it’s fun to check out all the amazing homes that are nestled in the hillside along the crooked walking paths. We’ve been up to Coit Tower many times but had never gone inside the tower and up to the top. It was a beautiful day when I walked up there, so I thought what the hell. I’m going to buy the ticket and take the janky, old elevator to the top to see what’s up there. You have to pay to go and we always thought, what’s the point? We know of so many great free look outs. But now I know the point. And I recommend it to everyone, tourist or not.
(The windows have clear covered window panes on them so that you can’t throw things out the window at innocent people BUT you can slide things through between the wall and window pane to leave a lucky coin or apparently business cards are hot)
I will have to say though, I’ve missed my Frover and I’m so happy she’s back. We are already working on our next blideo and somehow we’ve suckered some key players into the mix. I.F.F people! Enjoy your weekend.
It’s every twenty something year olds dream to have these magical sweet treats! Chels and I first discovered these at a fund raiser which was dangerous because if you know your money is going to a good cause why not buy hundreds of them and indulge?? After all, it is helping somebody else! Anyway, anything dipped in chocolate is a gift from God. I don’t know if you have noticed but we are all about simple fixes and these are a great treat that you can share with others.
What you will need:
– Long Stemmed Pretzels
– White Chocolate Chips
– Sprinkles and/or any other desired toppings (our favorite choices: mini-marshmallows, coconut flakes, sparkly sprinkles)
(First step: Gather all your ingredients and place chocolate chips in a heating pan on the stove. I’ve heard you can use the microwave but then the chocolate would harden much faster so I wouldn’t suggest it. You want to have the pretzels out and ready to dip though because once the chocolate is melted, it’s go time)
(BEWARE: We melted on heat level 1. The chocolate chips must melt on a very low level, otherwise they don’t become a creamy consistency and will actually harden/burn. Once the chocolate is melted, you must work quickly. Keep the burner on though as you start dipping.)
Hey, they can’t all come out perfect looking but don’t worry they won’t last long anyway. The combination of salty sweet gets everyone addicted instantly and before you know it, all that’s left are scattered sprinkles like a fairy crime scene.
