Fresh Find: Lolita Grand in Brooklyn

IMG_3147.jpg

I've been to New York City about a bazillion times and even lived there for a short spell, but I've never really explored Brooklyn much! This trip, Joel and I really wanted to make it a point to spend a lot of time in Brooklyn. Our idea of exploring is walking a lot, taking pictures, finding random junk/antique stores, and discovering bars! We had done a lot of exploring one day and were seeking a bar...we were crossing a street when I turned around and saw this beautiful vision. A sea foam green vision of beauty with a hot pink sign reading, "Lolita Grand." We literally turned around, mid crosswalk, and high-tailed it inside. I ordered my rose, then as she poured, I started snapping away! It was too cute not to! #noshame

Even as I'm writing this, Joel said, "Finding this place was your destiny." Hahaha. Not wrong. I was in heaven the whole time. He is kind enough to oblige. See photo below. ;)

All this to say...you GOTTA check out Lolita Grand if you're ever in Brooklyn!

Girly Garb: 90's Knits with Modcloth

Trends, especially in L.A. are ever changing. It's honestly one of the things we love the most about this city. So many different styles, all done their own way, and all constantly adapting off of each other. It's crazy inspiring and fun to try to keep up. ;)

And it's absolutely no secret that 2017 is basically the year of the 90's. Mom jeans, crop tops, t-shirt dresses, those classic black mules that we all wore to middle school dances. And we are NOT mad about it at all. Relishing in all this 90s goodness! And lucky for us, so is Modcloth

Livin' our best fall lives in these fabulous wide leg pants, bold polka dot top & this tweed plaid skirt with this chunky blue pom-pom sweater. We often refer to ourselves as Monica and Rachel (and if you know us, you would probably agree...a lot of our characteristics match), and we feel like they may have actually owned these outfits. ha! 

We've been trying to squeeze everything we can out of this fall weather in Los Angeles. It's probably the season we both miss the most, with us both being from the mid-west/south. So this year we searched out a pumpkin patch, and wound up going on the most perfectly cloudy & cool day! It made our hearts happy. :)

This time of year brings fun plans for both of us! We usually host a Friendsgiving, attend as many holiday parties as we can, drink all the cider and hot chocolate, have tons of girl movie nights with sushi in our jammies, send out holiday cards (cause we really enjoy being grannies), and make lots of crafts! 

Our next thing to really seek out is an apple orchard somewhat close to LA! Real apple cider and cider donuts are two things we have yet to check off our list, and they are calling our NAMES!

What are some of your favorite things to do in the fall?!

Always open to broadening our list!

2 Broke Girls- Los Angeles Version

So, it's actually kind of ridiculous how many times this has happened to us. Most of the time it happens at airports, a couple of times at restaurants, and once at Michael's. 

"Are you guys the 2 broke girls?"

And we're always like...yes, but not the ones you're referring to. Not the ones from the TV show...cause they're probably rich in all reality. *shrugs* But, this year's costume is for all those people out there who have mistaken us for Max and Caroline. Hopefully we've done them justice. Maybe if they see this, they'll invite us on the show...is it still airing? 

Happy Halloween, witches! 

xoxo,
