8 Jul

The end of a fabulous fourth of July week can only mean one thing: new favorites!  From american flag obsessed DIY-ers to celebrity drama surrounding Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise’s divorce (you go Katie!) this week has it all. So as you wind down from a week of food, friends, parties and people proclaiming their love for “‘murica,” take a second to check out of our favorites.

Favorite beverage:

Sangria is easily one of the best treats of summer. Fruit, wine and deliciousness all in one pretty little pitcher, what could be better? This is a must try.

Favorite ‘merica-themed DIY:

Cute and patriotic! These shorts are easy to make and look adorable with almost any white top. A perfect fourth of July outfit!

Favorite abs:

Okay so it’s not a new favorite, but Channing Tatum’s abs are at a whole new level is his movie Magic Mike. We all know that Channing’s midsection has been famous since their debut in Step Up, but this latest movie features the up close and personal version. Be prepared to drool ladies.

Favorite silly:

These mugs would make a cute gift!

Favorite brilliant idea:

This looks so easy, cute, and personalized. So many options at a low cost!

10 Jun

It’s Sunday again and you know what that means: time to dish out the skinny on what we loved the most from this week. From the MTV Movie Awards to the Miss USA Pageant, I spent a good part of my time oo-ing, ahh-ing and eww-ing at the TV (I think its time to send some of the Miss USA contestants a round of burgers). Here are the fabulous favorites for this week.

favorite red carpet outfit:

Charlize Theron wows in this red dress. Classy from head to toe, this gorgeous actress turns heads with ease. If only the rest of us could be so lucky!

favorite way to avoid boredom:

DIY-ing! You end up with totally unique and awesome items, it’s actually really fun! And it’s way better than sitting in front of the TV all day watching re-runs. Check out Kelsey’s post on DIY shorts for more information about our DIY day.

new favorite gossip:

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth are ENGAGED. Lucky bitch. But I can’t help but wonder if Kim Kardashian is rooting for the possibility of the marriage failing faster than hers.

favorite random celebrity appearance:

Joe Jonas. Why you were a judge for Miss USA 2012 is beyond me. But he must have felt very confident next to fellow random celebrity judge Rob Kardashian.

favorite quote:

Let’s be real. Retail therapy is therapy for a reason. Nothing beats slipping on a brand new pair of spiky stilettos or sparkly flats after a terrible week. The best part? Shoes are the one aspect of fashion always guaranteed to fit.

3 Jun

It’s officially Sunday, our favorite day to hang out, veg out, and dish it out… our best of the week that is!  The Sunday skinny is our weekly post confessing what made us happiest over the past six days.  A lá style of “Friday Favorites” written by everyone’s favorite Cali-girl, Lauren Conrad, here is the skinny on this week!

  • favorite nails

Bring the party to your fingers with blue hue’d tips & one glitter nail {Kiko 389 + Milani Silver polish)

  • favorite quote

Why shouldn’t everyday be exciting?

  • favorite beach hair

The bandana look is not only easy and perfect for hot weather, but is also making a huge comeback since Rosie the Riveter last rocked it.

  • favorite scent

Grass. No, I’m not talking about eu de parfum grass edition. I’m talking about straight up fresh cut grass. Nothing smells like the start of summer quite like the outdoorsy aroma lingering in the air after the lawn mower has done its job.

  • favorite fun exercise

Lately I’ve been totally bike crazed. After I had enough of the gym during the winter months and switched to running, it quickly became mundane. Pulling out the two wheeler and hitting the streets turned out to be a great way to mix up work outs.

  • favorite app

To go along with my new cycling obsession, I downloaded this app – Map My Tracks – the app that for .99 cents will track your distance, speed, elevation, and burned calories, as well as keep track of where you went on your ride! Even if you don’t take up my biking challenge, this app has a setting for just about every mobile workout from running to hot air ballooning and paddle boarding.
