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!

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’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.

A Collection Part 45

Interestingly enough, we don’t have a lot of thoughts to share about this A Collection Part post. The last 3 months have been a blur, but a good one. I think we’ll have some thoughts that we can share tomorrow that we’re building up, but for now let’s just enjoy these.
