According to Science:

According to a new study, couples who drink together are happier! Actually clarification – couples who have the same interest in drinking or share the same distaste for it are actually the happier ones. I find this to be totally believable because imagine if you’re person A and you like to have a couple of drinks on a Friday or Saturday night and then your partner is like “nah, I want to be a wet blanket tonight and have a water.” It sounds like a disaster.

A higher correlation was found for alcohol consumption, suggesting that a couple who shares a similar love (or distaste) for drinking is destined to be happier in their marriage and, conversely, that a discrepancy will often lead to marital dissatisfaction.

The study tracked 634 newly married couples over the course of a seven-year follow-up period and found that while smoking habits stayed relatively the same, and so did not incur mounting levels of dissatisfaction, partners who drank did so with more frequency over the years, thus resulting in increased dissatisfaction at each couple check-in.

I think as long as you’re not a mess and you and your partner don’t become destructive when you drink that this is pretty positive. Here’s hoping that all my future partners are down to have a least two drinks. Doesn’t this naturally just make dates easier because you’re breaking the ice?

Back in Seattle…

Striped dress – Aritzia / Birkenstocks / Sunglasses – Marc by Marc Jacobs

I had the best time returning home and visiting Seattle last month. These crosswalks in Capitol Hill were freshly painted that morning and I knew I couldn’t leave without getting a picture with them. We did our best! These crosswalks are typically so busy in the Pike/Pine corridor so it’s tough to get a photo without another stranger in them. These were mainly done just in time for Pride, but I had heard that they were going to be sticking around for much longer. As they should! They totally bring a little something to the neighborhood, plus they are super fun. I really love dresses like this for the summer where you can just pull it on over your head and have it be a no-fuss type of an outfit that is ready to go.

In Powerful Covers of the Day…

Wow, NY Magazine is making a huge statement with this cover and it is incredible. So far, 46 women have come forward about being assaulted by Bill Cosby. The cover features the 35 women that are okay being photographed and interviewed for the article. Bill Cosby’s show came out before I was born and had its final season when I was just two years old so I didn’t have any strong ties to him or the sitcom at all, but until this story came out, I do know that a lot of people really adored Bill Cosby. It’s actually quite sad that this has happened though, but very empowering for these women to stand up and have a voice about the matter. It’s such a takedown on Bill Cosby, but this is the right thing to do.

Homeless People Reading Mean Tweets About the Homeless

Just some perspective. Angie Bird has filmed a powerful video that is a spin on Jimmy Kimmel’s celebrities reading mean tweets about themselves. However, instead of using celebrities, she had homeless people reading mean tweets about homeless people as a way to raise more awareness. Instead of taking a few seconds to put others down, we should be spending those minutes helping those in need.

A Frankly Friday Fixtape

It’s not Friday anymore, but this weekend is definitely dedicated to Frank Ocean! Yo – where’s the new album, we’re waiting for it! I’ve been listening to this “Fixtape” everyday this week just to get me excited. I’m almost sure that it’s going to be a bigger hit than the Miguel album. Though I enjoyed listening to it, I think Frank has always been more my style.

Moorea Seal

IMG_3297

After I moved away from Seattle in 2013, a new storefront moved in downtown and I hadn’t gotten a chance to visit it until this past June when I returned home. I think before they officially had a store, Moorea Seal was completely online, which is how I kept up to date on them through various social media networks including Pinterest. If there was ever a store that embodied me the best, this would be it. When Anna and I finally made a trip to the actual store, I couldn’t handle myself. Two steps in, I threw my hands up in the air and nearly startled the girl up at the front. Everything. Was. Perfect. Anna is such a good friend because she was completely patient as I perused every single corner, shelf, and display of the store. The thing about these types of stores though is that you don’t want to miss anything. I had to be smart with my wallet though because boy, was this store dangerous. I would look at a pair of shoes and say to myself “Yep, these are the one.” And then three seconds later, have my eyes land on a pair of perfect brown sandals that I knew just had to come back with me to California.

While I was there, I also had the opportunity to meet Moorea Seal herself and to let her know how much I adored her shopfront. Don’t worry, we’ll be back! There are more things to buy!

Five Favorite Pins: National Ice Cream Day

Horchata Ice Cream [Love & Olive Oil]

I feel like I missed out on a great opportunity to have ice cream on National Ice Cream Day today, but I’m glad to see that everyone else in my Instagram feed was enjoying it. I actually had my ice cream moment earlier this week at Tin Pot when Tommy and I made a quick trip after work. For the first time in years, I had my coffee ice cream in a cone instead of a cup and it was more stressful than I could ever imagine. Why does ice cream melt so fast?! I felt like a little kit again with a pile of drips at my feet outside the shop, but it was so worth it. To celebrate National Ice Cream today, we didn’t get to eat it, but here are 5 yummy flavors that you can dream about tonight!
