Summer is HERE, y'all! 

*This post was sponsored by Pepsi and Walgreens, though all opinions expressed are our own*


We are both definitely warm weather kind of gals, and that's definitely part of what brought us out here to live in lovely Los Angeles when other places such as New York and Chicago were also considerations at first. And don't get us wrong, those cities are magical too. But, sorry. They're too. dang. cold.

Both of us are energized by sunshine, and we love to spend our free-time lounging poolside, beachside, and also exploring all the fabulous nooks and crannies of this amazing, crazy, huge city. That's why the start of summer has us allllll kinds of giddy for the adventures to come (and also the adventures we get to share with you guys through our blog)! We recently teamed up with Pepsi and Walgreens to show how the new Pepsi emoji bottles are a perfect addition for your summer adventures wherever you are (cause hello, they have adorable emoji's on them!), and how you can #SayItWithPepsi! 

Just head to your local Walgreens (they're seriously around every corner here in L.A.) and pick up a pack or two of these cute sodas! They have plenty of choices when it comes to emojis, so rather you're picking them up for a gal pal pool party, and want something a little more girly, like the kissing face or the heart eyes, or if you wanna take some along to a Dodger's game and need a baseball theme, don't even worry. There are over 200 emoji options, so Pepsi has gotcha covered! 

And you just can't miss 'em! We're drawn to anything cute & colorful, and these just catch your eye! 

Like we said, summer has officially begun in L.A. and it is hot! We decided to grab a few Pepsi's to keep us company by the pool! :) 

Also, as bloggers, it's like, our favorite to go out and find all the crazy cool walls L.A. has hidden all around it! Some graffiti, some bright & solid colored. And if you follow us, and even just look at our blog, you know we loooooove the color pink. So, no surprise here, right? 

Trips to the pink wall in West Hollywood (where you will no doubt see at least one other blogger at all times) are a summer must! 

And because these Pepsi emoji bottles are so perfect for summer, Walgreens is offering a promotion! All through the month of June, you can get 2 for $3 and also earn 500 balance reward points, and throughout July and August, you can also get 2 for $3 and earn 250 balance reward points! We don't know about y'all, but those reward points definitely help us, because we're usually stopping to pick something up at least once a week! ;) 

You can find these emoji bottles to match any mood, any adventure, and they're so easy to get your hands on!
