Nike Air Max 90 Premium in “Wolf Grey”

Wow, I definitely don’t think I’m cool enough to pull these off, but when you have a name like “Wolf Grey,” how do you pass something like that up?! These are beautiful. I want to touch them. They look sort of like mermaid scales or reptile scaleds, but are they soft? Doesn’t it look like they’ve got some padding to them? I don’t care too much for the clear transparency thing that’s happening near the heel, but it’s not a deal breaker for me. The all grey look is niiiiice. Also, they did a great job pairing it with that shade of denim.

These are going to be sold at approximately $179.90 in US dollars.

Who’s getting these?

Clinique vs. Crayola Chubby Sticks

Photo by | Refinery 29

When I first laid eyes on this Crayola Chubby Stick Lip Balm set, I wished I had discovered these before Christmas instead of after New Years! How cute are these?! I feel like every woman would want to own this set and if every shade isn’t for you (when is it ever?) then at least just keep it on display. I love the shade of Melon and for those days when you’re trying to keep it minimal – I’d select Fuzzy Wuzzy. I’m also strangely attracted to Mango Tango. It may not be an everyday look, but how fun would it be to bring this out with you for a Friday or Saturday night?

This latest collaboration between Cinique and Crayola is pure genius. The entire collection of Chubby Sticks are out to the public already and being sold for $17 each. However, you don’t want to wait until the last minute – this collection is only available through February so make sure you collect your favorites ASAP!

BeachRiot Spring 2017

Bloom Top and Bouquet Bottom – $84/$76

Is it ever too early to start thinking about swimsuit season? I know we’re still deep into winter, but what about Spring Break and that random beach getaway that you might start planning for February? I may not have any need for a new swimsuit for an upcoming trip just yet, but this spring collection from BeachRiot has me excited! How gorgeous are these suits? I’ve outlined just a few of my favorites!

Beauty for Breakfast Returns

screen-shot-2017-01-01-at-5-43-19-pm

We had announced that we were taking a break from Beauty for Breakfast on Yow Yow! not too long ago, but we’re taking it back! I’ve been doing a lot of work on my Instagram lately both with my feed and stories, but we’ve missed writing more detailed reviews on Yow Yow! which we can’t always do on Instagram. In 2016, I’ve had a lot of fun playing with and experimenting with different beauty products and I think that sort of began when we decided to adopt a “facial for every season” regime.

Our favorite so far? Every kind of mask, but especially the sheet ones that make us look like Kevin Bacon in Hollow Man. I was just coming back from a busy fall travel season for my job and my face felt like it been wrecked. When I travel, I can’t always bring all of the products that I would use on any normal day and rely more heavily than I would like on hotel products. We all know that that’s sort of a gamble! Waiting for me at the office when I returned was this amazing package from Alison Brod Marketing + Communications filled with all of the goodies you see above. It’s been a couple of months and we’re still trucking through them, but loving every second of it. There’s a mixture of items in this bunch including, lipstick, lotion, fragrance, masks, moisturizer, etc. and it’s been keeping us busy. To revive Beauty for Breakfast posts, we’ll be including reviews shortly on all of the items we’ve been trying.

Thank you so much to Alison Brod M + C for helping us get our beauty routine back on track!

Nike’s Air Force 1 Ultra Flyknit Mid in Dark Green

This is a very long name for a sneaker. When I saw these on Hypebeast today, I couldn’t take my eyes off of them! For one, we’ve been obsessed with our Oreo Flyknits since the day that we got them and we’d take them in every color and style if we could! We feel very drawn to the dark green though because you know…northwest, but also how good does this look against the leather? It’s the perfect combination of soft and delicate with something that’s a little bit more rough around the edges. We’ll take one pair of these, please! Now… to come up with $185.00.

The Closet: December 2016

Robin Slingback Heel – $59

We are accessory heavy in this edition of The Closet! In 2016, we discovered a newfound love for chokers and caps and while some fashion blogs have cited these trends as “already over,” I’m going to keep on trucking along with them. That is… at least until the chokers get too loose and the caps can no longer sufficiently cover my bad hair days. I was going to let this post marinate for a couple of days longer so that we could include more goods, but I think this is a good place to stop. One reason is because I like the trend I’m seeing in the items listed here – a throwback to something kind of retro and classic. Everything is so delicate, pretty, a little pink and a little sparkly that these just make the perfect set as is.

Our Next Flyknit Racer

If these weren’t coming out next spring, I would’ve had this on my Christmas wish list this year for Kevin! How beautiful are these? So white. So clean. I’ll never wear them outside of my house for fear of getting them dirty!

But of course we will because they will go with every single one of our outfits.

There’s no specific date for when these will be released other than Spring 2017, but you can bet we’ll have our ears close to the ground for this one.

Nike’s “Triple Black” Flyknit Racer

*swoon*

On this Thanksgiving, I am very grateful that my brother instilled in me a love for shoes – sneakers in particular. Is it too early for us to begin crafting up our Christmas wish list? This may be at the top! They’ll sit nicely next to my Oreo Flyknit Racers that I got from Kevin LAST Christmas!

Nike unveiled their “Triple Black” flyknit racer and it is so beautiful. These will be on sale starting November 30th… leaves me enough time for them to get under our family Christmas tree…

Currently Craving:

In the Bay Area, all my friends and I have been obsessed with Poke lately. There have been so many spots popping up around us including one that is just 5 blocks away from our workplace which in our opinion – is a little dangerous! I happened to be a little famished when I saw this Poke burger show up on the interwebs today and since I’d never seen something like this before in my life, I had to share it. Do y’all think it would taste good? Sometimes when I eat raw fish, I’d rather just enjoy it on its own and in its purest form so mixing it with a burger… I may have some hesitancies!

Interested in making it yourself? Here’s the recipe for you!

Currently Craving:

It’s nearing 11:00 PM which means that the almost midnight craving wave is starting to come over me and what do we want?! None other than a good ‘ol fashioned hot dog. Have any of you ever seen that film, “Now You See Me?” There’s a scene in that film where they talk about a subject who gets led into doing something because he’s been getting clues and hints about it for a duration of time. When you start to hear and see something that just keeps coming up, you naturally find yourself craving that. Well, today my dad told me he ate a hot dog. Step 1. Then I was in Capitol Hill in the Pike/Pine area where I normally pick up a hot dog after a night out like I did in college. Step 2. and Step 3 – I just came across this article on Cool Material outlining the 12 best unique hot dog toppings. If that’s not a sign, then I don’t know what is.

The Inflatables You Need This Summer

Strawberry Donut Pool Float – $19

We’re headed to Palm Springs this weekend for Mandi’s Bachelorette Weekend and getting more and more excited with every day. Mandi and I have honestly been talking about this for months and when I found out that we were going to Palm Springs, I was ecstatic. It’s my first time! It’s also going to be extremely hot. There’s no doubt that we’ll be spending a lot of our time poolside, but what’s a pool party without inflatables, right? It seems like every pool party I’ve seen this year has had a smattering of assorted inflatables and my favorite ones? The ones that look like food! I believe we’ve got a partially bitten donut coming with us (you know the one we’re talking about!) but here are a few other ones that we wish we could take along too! Don’t be caught without one of these this summer or you’ll be experiencing FOMO.
