Girly Garb: 70s Vibes for Fall

This year we've both been SUPER inspired by 70s fashion and how it's been reborn and reinvented. Wide-leg pants, deep and bold colors, bell-sleeves, middle parts...we're all about it.

What decade inspires you the most?!

(Fonuts)

Hey, y'all! 

So, I'm sure we've mentioned before, Los Angeles is like, donut central. Donut shops around every corner. So many different varieties. You can get a donut breakfast sandwich, donut ice cream sundae, donuts with bacon on them, pretty much donut whatever-your-heart-desires. And as two donut lovin' gals, we're always on the hunt to find the best one! Which is basically impossible because every place we've been to so far is just SO DIFFERENT. It's impossible to compare apples and oranges! But let's be real, we're not comparing fruit here. Sugary fried dough is way more important. ;)

So, last week, one of our main babes, Cammie (The cute lil bb pictured above...killa_camzz on insta...she's pretty rad...and we do occasionally hang out with other people besides each other), suggested we try out this place! At first, we were kind of skeptical. "Fonuts." That means "fake donuts," right?! But ohhhh man, were we wrong! They were amazing! 

The main difference between fonuts and regular donuts, is that these ones are always baked or steamed, never fried, which makes them really moist, and cakey, and delicious. Which we can totally appreciate, cause we wanna live a long time but also eat the things we love. Less guilt, right?! Life is all about balance. :) Our babe Cammie is also vegan. Neither of us are, but we're always down for some good vegan grub. Fonuts had quite a few vegan and gluten free options as well, which we thought was super cool! Another thing we absolutely adore about living in L.A.! So many options for everyone! 

Are you enticed yet?!

Their flavor choices were INSANE! So many options we'd never even heard of before. 

Our flavor recommendations:

  • Blueberry Earl Grey
  • Strawberry Buttermilk
  • Vanilla Latte
  • Black and White
  • Banana Bread

We had to do some experimenting, and while we were super full afterwards, it was totally worth it! They also serve LaMill Coffee which is some of the best damn coffee you'll have whilst in L.A. and the staff is just super friendly and patient. We took forever to decide (again, let's be real, it doesn't matter where we are, we take forever to decide.), and they were so sweet while we were all like "I'll take the banana...no, no, no wait! I want the vanilla..no, no, no WAIT!...yeah, I'll take the banana." ;)

So, add this to your list of ever-growing places to visit when in L.A. or make it one of your local spots if you already live here! We'll definitely be back because there are at least 10 more flavors that we haven't tried, and we haven't done our duty as Americans to these donuts if we don't go all in, right? #fonuts2016. 

Cheers, babes!

Whimsy Wishlist Wednesday: Fall Faves!

Fall is *FINALLY* upon us!! We can already feel it in the air (and in our hearts <3). Why is it that Fall is just so much better than every other season? Cause as far as we're concerned, it most definitely is. Something about the crisp nights, cozying up with a good book and hot tea, living in bulky sweaters 24/7...or maybe it's that you can put on 5-10 lbs with no one noticing... Regardless, BRING IT ON.

We've each put together a few items that we're majorly into for the fall below!

Jen's up first:

1./2./3./4./5.

 

Now for Cort's:

1. / 2. / 3. / 4. / 5. 

Now get to shoppin'!

Happy fall, y'all!

xoxo,

Jen & Cort 

Berry Moscato Slushies

As if we needed another excuse to drink wine. ;) 

We are soaking up these summer cocktails while we can, and we are all for this slushie phenomenon happening right now! This summer has been full of poolside sippin', and since starting the blog, we've tried a ton of new recipes we've loved! Some of them including the Chi Chi Colada and the Lemon Pineapple Mojito! But we are definitely wine gals, so this has been one of our fave recipes to date! And it's like, almost too easy. So, whenever you run out, it's easy to get a refill! 

All you need is a cup full of berries of your choice (I used raspberries, blackberries, and blueberries) and a bottle of Moscato! I'm sure you could substitute it for a different kind of wine too, if you don't like the flavor of Moscato! 

Blend the berries and the Moscato together and then pour the mixture into an ice cube tray!

Freeze for about an hour! It won't be all the way frozen, but it'll have a slushie-like consistency. P.S. while we're on the subject, who votes that we should have more Sonic's on the west coast?! We miss their slushies sooooo much! 

Finally, scoop out your slushie cubes into your glass, grab your unicorn pool floatie, and get to sippin'! 

Happy cocktail drankin', babes! 

XOXO,

Cort
