Modernism Week in Palm Springs


I mean...we go to Palm Springs so often now, I'm sure you're surprised we don't own a second home there. We are too. :P

We have wanted to go to Modernism Week in Palm Springs for awhile now, and we FINALLY WENT! If you don't know what Modernism Week is, here's a little blurb from their website:

The mission of Modernism Week is to celebrate and foster appreciation of midcentury architecture and design, as well as contemporary thinking in these fields, by encouraging education, preservation and sustainable modern living as represented in the greater Palm Springs area.

So basically, people open up their homes for viewing and appreciation of the architecture and interior design. HOLY INSPO. From the color, to the fabrics...everything is SO well thought out and placed. It's no wonder they made us wear little protective booties over our shoes! We also went on a Palm Springs Door Tour with Bike Palm Springs. It was waaayyy too much fun! We started at the Saguaro, and biked to a nearby neighborhood with all the fun doors that you see on Instagram all the time. ;)

We partnered with Dunn-Edwards to go check it all out! Dunn-Edwards is responsible for the AMAZING re-do of the paint at the Saguaro, *major heart eyes*, in addition to a lot of the homes and doors that are famous for their color in Palm Springs and beyond! All doors you see below, ALL Dunn-Edwards! Sponsored or not, we will sing their praises time and time again. Great company, great people. <3

We were so lucky to be able to share this experience with some of our nearest and dearest...we had way too much fun! Here's a little taste into our trip!

All in all, we had a blast at Modernism Week! We would highly suggest checking it out, if you're able. All the midcentury-modern/colorful goodness!!

Pitches Night In!

*This post was sponsored by Universal Pictures Home Entertainment, but all opinions are our own.*


When all your favorite gals are in town, it's a literal necessity to have the biggest sleepover/movie night of all time, complete with the newest Pitch Perfect film. In true Beca fashion, we made popcorn with crazy toppings and a little champagne to top it off. 

The Bellas are back for one last call in Pitch Perfect 3. Now available on iTunes, own it with new musical performances, gag reel and extended scenes not seen in theaters. *praise hands*


We've been fans of the aca-awesome Bellas since day one. So as soon as we knew when Pitch Perfect 3 was available to watch on iTunes (cause let's be real, we don't wanna leave our couch), we knew we had to throw one ultimate Pitches Night In. And being the over the top people that we are, personalized snacks and drinks are right up our alley. We like options, people! 

A Make-Your-Own Popcorn Bar is always a win with us, so we knew it would be a hit with our babes as well. 

We decided on a sweet & salty kind of thing. We had sea salt popcorn and caramel corn as a base, and had our guests top it off with their adornments of choice. Some of them included: gummy bears, chocolate syrup, crushed Oreos, sprinkles, M&M's, Fruity Pebbles....too much sugar? ;) But literally anything could work, just depending on your taste! 

Common misconception: mimosas are just for the morning. Puhhhlease! What is a girl's night without a little bubbly?! We know the Bellas would approve. ;) We also had our guests make their own mimosas with their choice of juice. Some of our favorites are the classic OJ, strawberry lemonade, and peach nectar. But we don't discriminate against any mimosa. One and all are welcome. 

We also gave into the cliche of "typical girls slumber party" and 100% all did at home manicures with these cute Pitch Perfect themed nail polishes! #noshame 

Once the snacks are made and drinks are poured, all ya need is your best girls around you and your favorite flick! All cram on one couch and laugh until your cheeks hurt, or someone pees. haha! It's the best.  

What's your favorite way to slumber party? Favorite snacks, drinks, pampering activities? If we could make one suggestion, it's to get your best pitches together this weekend to watch Pitch Perfect 3 and cry laughing over this powerful girl gang! #squadgoals 


Love you awesome nerds. ;)

Orange Sticky Buns


Is there a better way to spend a rainy day in Los Angeles than by staying in and making the most gooey, caramelized, carb-filled breakfast? While crockpot buns may not be the prettiest dish, we both grew up making them with our families, and it's something we've always said we wanted to make together! And for our first time trying it, they turned out deeeeelish! Pull apart, finger licking, melt-in-your-mouth good. 

P.S. we made them vegan! Still not healthy though. ;)



So we have to share em!


  • 1 can of crescent rolls
  • Juice and zest of 1 orange 
  • 1/3 cup of orange marmalade
  • 5 tbsp of unsalted butter (we use a brand that's olive oil based, so there's no dairy! I believe it's Earth Balance!)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar (we use brown coconut sugar!)
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • Cinnamon to sprinkle 


  • Unroll crescent roll dough and form into one long sheet, pinching together the seams.
  • Soften 1 tbsp of butter, and spread the butter across the dough.
  • Spread the orange marmalade onto the dough.
  • Sprinkle a couple of tablespoons of brown sugar on top of the marmalade. Sprinkle cinnamon to taste. 
  • Roll up the dough tightly into a log, pinching together to keep it from falling apart!
  • Cut into 6 equal pieces! 
  • Once roll is cut, melt a couple of tablespoons of butter and 1/4 cup brown sugar in the bottom of your crockpot.
  • Place the rolls in the crockpot and cook on high for about 1 hour! We liked ours really gooey, so we took them out after about an hour and 5 minutes. If you want them not so gooey, you can leave them in up to an hour an a half! 
  • Once the rolls are done, whip up your orange glaze! Melt 1 tbsp of butter, and mix with 1 cup of powdered sugar, and the zest and juice of one orange! Whip together til it's smooth, and then pour on top of the rolls! 

And eat them while they're hot! 

Trust us!
