DIY: You’re So Clutch.

21 Feb

A fun weekend project!

DIY Clutch I am in love with my new homemade clutch! It’s a pretty simple thing to make too! I started off trying to make something that was outside of my sewing skill level and came up with this version instead- it’s perfect for beginners!

I saw this Forever21 sweatshirt on one of our favorite blogs, Cupcakes and Cashmere, and had to have it.  It’s so amazing for it’s bold shark presence.  I couldn’t be more happy with it 🙂  My boyfriend, Rob, took these photos while down at the beach.

SF Secret Spot.

18 Feb


I love to explore and when I moved to San Francisco, I had an entirely new map to discover.  Anytime I see a place that looks out of the norm for it’s area, like this mound in the middle of a neighborhood, I go check it out.  I couldn’t tell you what this place is called but it was a great place to take a moment and look around.

Winding Up.

Or you can take the stairs.


The bench even has a “B” on it for Brittany.

Many more “Secret Spot” editions to come from San Francisco!

European Chocolate.

13 Feb

Who doesn’t love chocolate?!  While Shannon and I were in Holland for a music festival we found a place that met every chocolate need we could have.  We only needed one of these little squares to fill up since they were so rich.  Of course we got different kinds and shared so we could taste the flavors.  Nothing makes me happier than trying new things and that includes chocolate!

The perfect marriage.

Each chocolate had a really intricate photo on it.

Testing, testing!

Shannon with her chocolate 🙂  Look at the image on that piece, such beautiful chocolates.


My brother, who is a pilot, would love this one.



When in Holland, don’t forget to take a bite of their amazing chocolate!

Sochi Life.

7 Feb

You may have noticed that we missed a post on Wednesday and we are so sorry for that, we have just had very limited access to internet here in Sochi. We’ve been having the time of our life courtesy of our sponsor Eat Cookies For Breakfast and wanted to share some of our favorite moments with you!

Tropical-Spot(We heard Sochi was one of Putin’s favorite “tropical” spots and therefore only packed shorts and swim suits. Luckily, someone loaned us some of these cool rainbow colored wind breaker suits!)

Sochi Hotel(Our hotel room lost our reservation but they did have some open space in the hallway with one blanket and pillow. Brittany tried to keep warm with her bourbon but instead kept me up all night with drunk laughter, I guess she was making the most of it!)

Sochi Tap Water(The receptionist at our igloo let us know the water was unsafe to drink…

Really awesome mini gardens 🙂

Timber GardensThe Treasure Island Flea Market is full of all kinds of creations but one that Brittany and I both loved were these succulent planters handmade by a husband and wife duo called Timber Gardens. They had all kinds of shapes and sizes and each one came with a tiny handmade “bird house” made out of an acorn!

Timber Gardens(Just in time for Valentine’s Day!)

Timber Gardens(Deciding which one we liked best)

Timber Gardens(Brittany chose one circular shape that would fit perfectly in her new apartment)

What a friendly pair with such unique items, they would make perfect gifts because they are unexpected.
