Cleopatra

The first time I ever heard The Lumineers was in 2012 when ‘Ho Hey‘ was released. After that, I had to see them live, so on an impulse I bought a pair of concert tickets to Red Rocks Amphitheater.  I had no idea how I would get there or where I’d stay; all I knew was I wanted to see them live and I wanted to see them perform at this world famous outdoor venue. I’ll never forget it. It was hands down one the most intimate concerts I have ever been to and instantly made me an even bigger fan of this folk-rock band. Continue reading “Cleopatra”

Sunday Fundays

As much as I love having brunch and catching up with girlfriends, I don’t always have the money to spend on mimosas, possible appetizers, and an entrée. So, when Desiree suggested we grab brunch this past weekend I had a better idea; make our own instead! After throwing a few ideas around we ultimately decided on adding a twist … Continue reading Sunday Fundays

Lemonade

“I was served lemons, but I made lemonade.”

LEMONADE_BEYONCE

If you don’t know much about Beyoncé, then know this: she is a force to be reckoned with. One of very few artists who always pushes boundaries through her creativity and one to always speak her mind. When HBO announced the world premiere of LEMONADE (now available on iTunes) on Saturday, April 23, 2016, fans were left wondering what exactly LEMONADE was.   Continue reading “Lemonade”

DIY Hair Mask

For the past few years I’ve been getting my hair professionally colored (that’s how Desiree and I met, she used to do my hair!), but there are times when I’m on a budget and don’t always have money to get a deep conditioning in between colorings. If you ladies know anything about coloring your hair, then … Continue reading DIY Hair Mask

(Don’t) Get Down With the Sickness

April showers bring May flowers, right? Well, they also bring on cold and flu season…

We all know the feeling. You feel great one day, then you wake up the next morning with a little itch in the back of your throat. “Okay, no big deal…” you think, as it disappears throughout the course of your busy day. The next day, you’re overcome by a sore throat, congestion, sneezing, and a cloudy brain on top of that. All you want to do is lay in bed and sleep it off, but you can’t. Work and every day life gets in the way of that. Instead of stopping by the pharmacy and loading up on tons of different medicines to find some kind of remedy you hope will work (with who knows what else it will do to your body), try out some natural, home remedies for a relaxing fix. Continue reading “(Don’t) Get Down With the Sickness”

Yes Way Rosé

If you’ve been to the grocery and/or liquor store lately, you may have noticed Rosé flooding the shelves. That’s because Spring is here, and rather than drinking boring white or red wines week after week, people are looking for a little change. Something lighter, with a perfect balance of dry and sweet, infused with delicate fruity undertones that not only pairs well with any meal, but is inexpensive and goes perfect with this beautiful Spring weather.

Lite Movie Night

Movie nights are always a fun get together for some much needed girl talk, laughter, and good food. Sometimes we want to pig out on pizza and beer, but other times we like to try to eat a little healthier. Rather than overindulging to the point where we can barely move, we decided to make a few snacks that we wouldn’t feel too bad about. First things first, we needed a tasty cocktail in our hands ASAP!

We started off with a Pineapple Upside Down Martini. This super refreshing drink had us feeling like we were on a mini vacation with each sip. It may not be the healthiest option out there, but hey, we snacked on pineapple slices to make up for it!

Here’s what you’ll need!

Festival Fashion

Festival season is underway, which can only mean one thing. It’s that time of year again for music, outdoors, friends, freedom, and most importantly, rocking out in style! With Coachella (the most stylish music festival around) officially kicking off the season in less than two weeks, we’ve put together some of our favorite festival looks … Continue reading Festival Fashion

Milk & Honey

My favorite part about the weekends is brunch. I love it! The only problem is that no matter where I go, I always want every single item on the menu because it all sounds so yummy. Which is what happened this morning when I came across milk and honey on the menu of the restaurant I was at. … Continue reading Milk & Honey

Mind of Mine

 

zayn-malik-bb1-2016-billboard-03-1250

Not going to lie, I knew who One Direction was but was never a huge fan. Then it was the major boy band headline when news broke that Zayn had left the group. My automatic thought was ‘Who the hell is that?’ and it was a memory that I never thought about again. Then months down the road PILLOWTALK was released. As always, when I find out about a newly released single I automatically go to Spotify and press play. Once I heard the single I was blown away. Where had this passionate, soulful voice come from and why had I never heard Zayn Malik sing before today? Continue reading “Mind of Mine”
