New Year, New Beauty

We’ve made it almost a month and are going strong with our resolutions!  We love this new beauty program that we tried out and it feels so fresh and so clean.  Or is that just a song?  Nope!  It’s real and it’s on our smiling faces!  Thanks to Sephora for hooking us up with a great beauty program that has us dialed in for the new year.  Neither of us are huge makeup people.  Part of that is that we don’t know what to do with what brush and part of it is that we just don’t have or take the time to put a lot on.  We love getting it done for us and we love playing with it, we just both prefer the natural on the go look.

 

So, what’s the program you ask?  Well, it starts with a Sephora exfoliating pad.  This silicone scrub is amazing for getting the dirt off your skin at the end of a day/night and helps clean your face perfectly before your moisturizer goes on.  We are also obsessing over the Dior Lipglow and Rose Salve lip balm.  They are life savers in this cold winter weather.  They also give your lips a fresh feeling and great pink tinted hue. Lastly, no one should go anywhere without a small perfume in their purse – keeps you smelling great all day and all night!

 

We wanted 2018 to start with natural lashes.  Yes, we both had lash extensions and yes, we both now do not.  We feel great without them and that’s totally thanks to Dior Maximizer and Marc Jacobs mascara!  We are so in love and so happy to have our natural lashes back!

New Year, New You

A new year is here and aren’t we all just busy making and breaking our resolutions?!  It gets us down when we make promises to ourselves that we just don’t keep.  So, we try not to do such drastic changes!  Like where we’re heading with this??  We like making small changes and subtle alterations to lifestyle in general to keep things going and easy to follow.  No one wants to deprive themselves fully of burrata or wine, right?!  Everything in moderation.  That’s what we’re helping you with not just this week but all month!  Yah!  This week we start off by looking at fitness regimes…

 

So, we’re not here to tell you how to work out or how often or what classes to take in.  That’s not our jam and we’d probably end up doing you a disservice!!  Need that help, ask a pro and if you need help with that, we can suggest some to you!  We’re here to help you WANT to follow through with your keep fit resolution.  We know you made one too, just admit it!

 

First thing…tools.  You will need a kick ass pair of runners.  We are obsessed with Nike Zooms.  They are more supportive than the Nike Free runners that we used to rock.  These are also black and white which should come as no surprise to you!  They look good and who doesn’t want to have the sickest shoes at the gym or the coolest shoes in a class?  Bonus?  They are great for packing and double in your wardrobe as a great walking shoe when traveling.

 

Next up?  The tech.  Our wireless Beats and Apple Watch help us cross the finish line.  Great music powers us through the toughest workout and our watch keeps us on track and accountable.  It even can buzz your wrist when you need to stand or keep on keepin’ on.

More ideas?  We needed some too!  We went for the literal looking route with the cutest sweats from Forever 21.  No pain no gain.  True story.  We also love the pink jump rope there too!  Thanks for helping us out Forever 21!  The jump rope is so great, packs up well and have your ever considered jogging with one and doing sprints then jump then sprint then jump?  We hadn’t either, but we started and love the extra bursts of BURN we get!

See our faves here…

 

Happy new year friends.  How are you accomplishing your fitness goals?

Winter Warmth

Winter is coming…or is it here?  We’re not sure.  It feels like it’s here and it looks like it’s here but we can also read a calendar and know that it’s supposed to be coming in a month from now.  Dreadful.  BUT the bright side is that you can make winter warmth fun and cozy!!  How??  We are here to help!  Keeping warm can also mean keeping cute and we have all sorts of ideas to help with the cuteness factor!

 

To start, let’s see what we wear to keep warm.  Fur lined hoods anyone?  Black jacket anyone?  Tassels anyone??  Yes, yes and yes!!  We love this jacket.  A little MJ and a little en francais at the same time.  Love how warm it keeps us and how fun it is!

And this shearling vest from Joie cannot keep us warmer!  It is the perfect over layer or under layer to literally every outfit we put on this season.  It has a little Star Wars feel to it when it’s fully zipped up, but we are digging the look.  We love how cute it is with jeans and how awesome it is with leather leggings!

Here are some ideas to keep warm and cozy and CUTE this winter!  We are loving our feet staying warm – enter the most amazing slippers that say “glam” obviously.  Adorable.  And when we leave the house, our feet need to stay warm.  One of us always has cold feet and even has heated ski boots to prove it!  That’s why our Hunter boots are always sporting Hunter liners.  They keep us roasty and toasting.

 

Speaking of roasty…the good old slow cooker nails it every time for us keeping our tummies warm and our men happy.  For our favourite slow cooker recipes check out our Pinterest board of them – so many to choose from!

 

And then there are the basics…the blush cable knit throw, the oversized scarf and the adorable pom pom topped toque.  We love these items for in the house, around the house and out of the house.  They are the best for matching all your outfits and keeping things a little bright on an otherwise cold and dreary winter day!

 

How are you keeping warm this winter?

Necklace Obsession

Ladies, do you love your jewelry as much as we do?!  We are firm believers that jewelry can make or break your outfit.  Obviously, that’s why we wanted to talk through our favourite necklaces today.  But first, we want to know if you ever have those strange moments where a certain word just seems so wrong?  It’s happening to us right now… necklace.  N-E-C-K-L-A-C-E.  Some lace for your neck?  Strange.  Anyways, back to what we’re actually here to talk about…

A necklace can say so many things about you.  It can describe you as whole… perhaps it’s a dainty one today.  Maybe it can describe your mood that day… perhaps you’re feeling a little punk rock with a choker?!  That’s why we love them so and what inspired us to share some of our favourites with you today.

First, and we are starting with a bang here, is the Van Cleef Alhambra necklace.  Honestly, any of their necklaces are so beautiful but we just love the way this one sits and the brightness it brings.  We’d honestly say, this describes many personailities and keeps you looking very put together.  Obsessed.

Second, is this beautiful long cross necklace.  FYI – we are not making any sort of religious statement with this one, it’s all about the fashion statement here.  It’s dainty with a little bit of an edge and can basically go with any outfit you might want it to.  This one is another true staple to our wardrobes.

Third is the choker.  No, not the choker – we should say THE choker.  Henri Bendel has taken the casual ribbon and totally tossed it out with window with this masterpiece!!  We love this with a collared shirt or with a leather coat look.  It’s our fave of the season!  

Fourth is the layered look.  We usually end up in a hot tangled mess strangling ourselves but we love the look anyways.  We love the length on the last layer of this gold simple looking necklace!

What necklaces are you obsessing over?

XO,

Samantha and Michelle

Printed Shorts

Who wears short shorts??  Yah…we know.  So how do you make short shorts fun again?  Patterns our loves, patterns.  We love to wear basics and solids and black on black, BUT should the mood strike we are all over patterned shorts!  They are so fun and such a great way to change up your look.  This week we are all about those printed shorts and how to wear them dressed up and dressed down.

We are starting off with polka dot shorts the casual way.  How?  We took these white shorts with black polka dots and paired them with a fun, graphic tank top.  Coco Made Me Poor.  It’s a true story so why not wear it and admit it?!  We put this with a Brooklyn ball cap, some Rayban aviators and flip flops.  Cute…casual…patterned fun!

So you need to dress up your patterned shorts a bit?  No problem!  Whenever we need a great, basic, hot tank we always rely on the brand Parker to get us there.  This one has a great racer back style.  We tuck it into our shorts with our leather espadrilles, silver jewelry, and hot red purse!  This outfit is so cute.  It can also be worn with wedges and looks so cute too!

Now, we know it’s summer so we also know you might be hitting up the beach in some of these printed shorts so we’ve styled a pair that way for you. Cute flamingo patterns.  Yes please!  These higher waist-ed shorts are a bold move for us but one we are all over when it comes to pairing them with little bikini top (and bottoms).  Yes, we can get on the hip-ster train… slowly but surely.

Next, “dressed up”… dressed up with the swimsuit pairing being the baseline here.  White printed shorts obviously need a white top to match it.  Even more obviously, the outfit needs some white shoes to complete the look.  Sorry, spoke to soon, it actually needs a pink Chanel to complete the look.  DUH

What printed shorts are you rocking this summer?!
