Starbucks Japan Is Better Than Us

It’s almost like they are two different companies. With a menu already offering cherry blossom inspired beverages, Japan is now offering a drink on their menu (for a limited time) called American Cherry Pie Frappuccino. Did you guys catch that? It’s American, but it’s over in Japan and we’re so jealous! Yes, of course we want that pie topper for ourselves. Why does no other American Starbucks offer us a frapp on the same level as this one? If you’re visiting Japan this spring, make sure you drop in (for all of us that can’t) and purchase the drink offered from April 13 to May 16.

Collective Retreats

I didn’t grow up being much of a camper or an outdoorsy person for that matter. I’m sure none of you are surprised to learn that. However, in college I branched out a bit and went on a few retreats and found myself really enjoying this time to myself in a secluded environment outside of the city. I liked the freedom of being able to do whatever I wanted and being at peace with my surroundings. As an adult, it’s still something I think about and from time to time, I do research retreats for adults. I never had an opportunity to do the 3-5 day silent retreat in college and that is still one of my biggest regrets!

I recently stumbled across “Collective Retreats,” which resembles what we all know today as “glamping,” but reminds me of the experience I once had. It may not be the tent that you grew up with, but it’s okay to think of it as an updated version of it. These tents have a cozy bed inside, wood floors, and a neighboring bathroom in a teepee. Toilet and shower included! I know what you’re thinking, how does this all work? I’m still trying to figure it out myself. Collective Retreats is able to work because they reach out to various landowners that happen to have these wide open private spaces that make for the perfect getaway. The company then turns these into makeshift tent lodges for a small period of time allowing guests to get the desired vacation they are hoping for. Since these plots of land are so large, they often will include anywhere from 5-15 furnished tents, but all within a reasonable distance from each other so that you can still feel like you are on your own. If you decide that you want the company of other retreaters, there is a common shared space for everyone to hang out together…and in which you will receive chef-prepared meals. Camping… just like when you were a kid!

Collective Retreats is currently available in Yellowstone in Vail with plans to expand out to Sonoma, Hudson Valley, and Hill Country.

Baby Pink is Back!

I’ve spent the last year consistently adding black and white pieces to my closet. I was convinced that color was dead – at least for me! That is… until this week when I discovered all of my favorite must-have wants are coming in shades of baby pink. And I’m not turning away from them. So I’m declaring it – baby pink is making a comeback this year and we are more than a little excited about it. The best part about this shade of pink is that it’s very subtle and if you want to wear a minimally styled outfit with black or white, a little pop of baby pink will do just the trick. Here are my favorite items from this week for our wishlist:

Away x Pop + Suki Luggage

Nike Air Max Thea Ultra Flyknit in “Multicolor”

Our Nike Flyknit love affair continues! If you’re wondering why there has been an increase in Flyknit posts recently it’s because of two things: 1) I own a pair and every day I can’t imagine my life without them and 2) I’ve been following the blog Hypebae for the past few months after following its brother site Hypebeast for years. Hypebae is the one that keeps me up to date on all of the new releases and every time I see a new announcement I pretty much throw my wallet across the room away from me to avoid what could be a dangerous situation – a growing collection of sneakers.

Now multicolor is not exactly a shade that I gravitate towards, but how GOOD do these look?! They aren’t over the top and in a way even though they are an eclectic mix of threads, it still feels very minimal. These are gorgeous. These are now being sold for $150 USD.

Free People Come Around Cami – $38

Can you tell we’re having a little bit of a shoe moment right now? I usually refrain from buying new pairs until the summer when the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale rolls around, but we’ve already got these on the brain. Now, if only they’d get hit with a massive sale… ;)

And it looks like once again, we’re obsessed with the black and rose gold combination. They just look so great together!

Design Love Fest x Target Collection

Whenever I learn about some of my favorite bloggers designing and collaborating on collections, my heart gets all warm and tingly. As a part-time blogger with a day job, these are the things that I only dream of. I’ve been following Bri of DesignLoveFest for years though and am constantly inspired by her creativity and how open she is with all of her readers. She’s someone I’ve looked up to. So when I learned that she linked up with Target to put together this fab collection of travel accessories and luggage, I nearly lost it. I’ve done the most traveling I have ever done in my life in the last two years and while I’m not a pro of knowing all the tips and tricks (Ugh, I don’t even have TSA pre-check yet!) I recognize the importance of traveling well and being prepared with all of the necessities. Here are our favorite picks and once you get a peek at the collection, you’ll probably want the entire set. Don’t delay though, one piece is already sold out online!

Aritzia Unleashes Spring 2017

I feel like we’ve been waiting for this moment since December! For weeks, I’ve been waiting for their “final” 50%-70% sale promos to come down so that we can celebrate spring and it looks like that time. is. now. Also side note though – that was a really good sale so if you missed out, you did yourself a disservice. Now onto more important things – the pieces that you’ll need for your closet this coming season. Get ready to haul out the stuff you don’t wear anymore to Goodwill to make some room!

Wilfred Hosta Dress – $125

The off-the-shoulder look is not done and over yet! I love how romantic and delicate this piece looks and it’s the perfect dress that will take you straight from day to night in any event.

adidas’ UltraBOOST X

I’ve never been a runner, but I would get into running if it meant that I could wear these all the time. This past week, adidas did a huge promo in San Francisco with other bloggers and female running enthusiasts to promote their new UltraBOOST X. This is one sexy sneaker. I don’t know much about sneakers, but from what I’ve read – this is the one you want to own. Similar to the PureBOOST X, this one was made to cater to the female foot. While wearing it, women will find that the sneaker provides stability, support, and extra comfort while you’re on the move. Also, this goes without saying, but how wonderful is this color palette for the UltraBOOST X? It’s our favorite colors in one shoe. “Orange Glow” (pictured above) is the first to be released, but soon the brand will release the sneaker in a few other colors including “Vapour Green” and “Cherry Wood” by Stella McCartney. You can make a purchase online now or wait until it is in-stores at the end of the month. These are being priced at $180 USD.

The Closet: January 2017

Free People Sparklette Mini Dress – $250

So if I’m being honest about my personal situation, I’m kicking off the new year by training myself to be more financially savvy. In the last month, I have made one clothing purchase at Oak + Fort and will probably not be needing to purchase anything else for a long duration of time. I’m also spending time researching other companies that help people save their money and invest them in more productive ways. I’m looking forward to writing a post about that soon! So for now, these are all dream items to us – a wish list if you will. It’s nice to look at nice things, but that doesn’t mean we have to always take them home with us. :) (or get them delivered in a box to our doorstep.)

Pink is in the Air

Happy February! Now I know it’s only Day 1, but already I’m taking notes and saving all things pink that catch my eye. If we’re being honest though, we probably started this last week. We’ve always loved the month of February and while we like to proclaim that we’re not as girly as everyone thinks, we typically throw that out when we get to this month. I noticed these yesterday and have had it up on my tabs all day as if I keep coming back to it on my breaks to debate if I’m going to purchase them or not. Believe it or not, this pair of LunarEpic Flyknit Low 2’s are not for Valentine’s Day and instead were designed to celebrate International Women’s Day on March 8th! There’s no set release date yet, but Hypebae insists that it will hit Nike retailers very soon!

Nike Classic Cortez in Pink

We’re not one to be all girly on this blog, but don’t these look like a d r e a m?! I haven’t been able to take my eyes off of these all week because they remind me of… ice cream? ;) I like that these are sporty, but functional and they are girly because they are pink, but they stand out and bring a little bit of edge to them. We are in need. In case you’re wondering what the exact color is for these sneakers, it is “Pearl Pink.” It was described on Hypebae as, “It colors the upper like a ballet slipper with a dual-colored midsole – or like Neapolitan ice cream.” I swear to you I thought this looked like ice cream before I even had a chance to read that line though.

These are being sold for $110 USD.

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!
