Chelsea got to see the Terracotta Soldiers!! I need to get over there to check them out.

photo (6)San Francisco is lucky enough to have the Terracotta Warrior’s visiting the Asian Art Museum for the next couple of months. I never thought I would have the opportunity to see them in person and I am so thankful I did, they are magnificent!

Tile(The beginning of the exhibit has artifacts that are over 2,000 years old!)

horse bells(These are some bells that horses would wear around their necks)

helmet(This helmet is made up of 80+ carefully carved limestone tiles)

Terracotta Warrior(Each Warrior was life-size, they say there are close to 6,000 in total!)

Terracotta Warriors(There are even life-size horses, helping the First Emperor in his afterlife)

terracotta warrior(Each piece was carefully painted before they were buried. Now, all that is left is the amber color of the terracotta but I still find them beautiful)

To find out more about how you can experience this special exhibit and learn more about the Qin Dynasty, China’s First Emperor, and…

Best recipe we’ve ever made!

Pop Tart

I think you can tell by now that we love to bake and create delicious things. Problem is, I am a terrible baker so I need to be creative about how I make things. This recipe was told to me by my hair stylist, she is the ultimate baker. It is so easy and even more yummy, try it this weekend!

Kiwi Fruit(Start by chopping up some of your favorite fruit or you could use a pre-made preserve)

Croissant crust(We laid out some of the Pillsbury croissant dough and layered the fruit mix on top of it)

homemade pop tart(Place another piece of croissant dough on top and seal with the edge of a fork)

Pop Tart(Cook according to dough instructions. Immediately top with some frosting and sprinkles!)

Pop Tart

Treat yourself to this simple and yummy treat! I must say they didn’t last long between the two of us!

Some GORGEOUS photos of Chelsea! And check out the music video we were on set to see 😀

MountainsThe video and band that Brittany was referring to yesterday was for One Republic’s “Feel Again”. Getting to see all of the work that goes into a music video shoot was really cool even if we were too diva to stay long enough to see the filming happen. Film until 5 AM?! Some of us have got to work, we can’t be frolicking in the Oakland hills until the sun comes back up! But part of me wishes we had, it was one of those once in a lifetime experiences. Anyway, here is what I wore.

feel again(Dress and Jacket- Forever 21, Shoes- Britt’s riding boots that I am obsessed with)

one republic(The wardrobe people didn’t ask to change one thing about  the looks we had picked)

Music Video magic!

IMG_0990

I can’t deny that ever since I met Chelsea, the most interesting events have happened to us.  One day I got a call from a friend asking if we would be interested in being in a music video being filmed in the bay area.  Of course we said yes!  We LOVE music and producing and/or being a part of creative content (hence the blog).  We didn’t know many details about it including who or what the video was even for but sent our info to the right place and BOOM!  We started receiving emails about the “secret” locations and what our wardrobe was supposed to look like.  The most fun we had though was trying to nail down the outfits.  This was in our email about what to try to dress as:

They also sent this photo to try to show us what the wardrobe guidelines were supposed to turn…

Mixing and matching prints, why not!

IMG_7110
Although I tend to love wearing black because it’s more flattering, I do tend to also love bright colors and especially floral prints.  Since the weather has been so nice lately here in San Francisco, it’s easy to embrace Spring before it arrives.  Who says you can’t wear a skirt in the winter?

IMG_7116(Loving the Nordstrom Brass Plum necklaces they have right now)

IMG_7119(Love my dark purple pumps, they were actually hand-me-downs from my frover Chels 🙂 )

IMG_7122(Uneven cardigan length is like a mullet – business in front, party in the back)

IMG_7118(I even stepped on the wild side and added some cheetah print in with the floral print)

Happy Friday everyone!  Have a great weekend 😀

pastel outfitSpring is on it’s way and with the arrival comes pastel in our closets! I am super excited about this trend because my favorite shades of colors are always light, I think it looks better with my pale skin. See this simple look we put together, I wore something very similar to work the other day!

teal shirt(Shirt- Forever 21, Purse- Urban Outfitters, Earrings- Forever 21)

pastel shirt close up(Snap detail, I love this alternative to buttons!)

Earrings(These earrings are flashy in an understated way- the light blue color tones it down)

Franco Sarto shoes(Shoes- Franco Sarto. These are so comfy and soft, I love the feel of these kitten heels)

outfitThis look is simple and easy to pull off, just don’t be afraid to mix your colors!

DIY Braided Top Knot

IMG_7074

It’s hard to have a cute up-do that’s fun and sophisticated.  One day I had my hair in a pony tail and wanted to add something to it.  Not have just a typical bun or pony tail.  So I braided and twirled and ended up with this easy to do bun!

IMG_70851. Start with a regular pony tail

IMG_70842. Separate strands to start braid

IMG_70833. Braid hair until 1 or 2 inches from the ends of your hair

IMG_70824. Twirl braid around the base of your pony tail

IMG_70815. Tuck the ends of the braid under one of the elastic loops holding your pony tail

IMG_70796. Pin any crazy, out of control pieces down unless you like how they look

IMG_70777. Voila!  Scope it, so easy.
