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!

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.

This week, Nicole Richie released her latest collection in collaboration with Revolve and already, we’re obsessed.

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.

With the ongoing rain that has been happening all day today, we’re pretty much having the coziest Saturday ever! I’m not sure if this is something that I adopted when I was in Seattle or if it was here, but every time it rains at night, I’m always craving a warm dessert. We didn’t make this French chocolate mousse because – let’s be real here – I know nothing about baking desserts, but that doesn’t stop us from wanting it! We’ve also got the candles burning and a scary movie on in the background. But how are all of you spending your Saturday? I know most of my friends are binge watching House of Cards and us? Well, we’re headed to New York next week so we’re trying to take it real easy because Mandi has promised me miles and miles of walking all over the city!

Valentine’s Day Wants

There’s one guy friend every year that comes to me – sweat forming on his forehead and completely overwhelmed with the pressures of having to buy his girl a Valentine’s Day present. You would think that by your 20’s you would’ve nailed this already. Wrong. It’s okay though, I don’t mind helping out my boys because of course, we know this holiday like the back of our hand. As a girl myself and a girl that loves gifts, when I put myself into this situation as the receiver, it seems fairly easy. However, I recognize that some girls just aren’t like me and might be expecting more so the only way to really write this gift guide is just to share all the things that I would want! Don’t worry – I’ll include some variety so hopefully one of these things will land you in good graces.

The Closet: January 2016

Protective Nourishment Blueberry Scrub Mask – 2 Minute Treatment – $55

In the month of January, we were all about “treating ourselves” so if you peruse this post, you may notice a lot more pampering than usual and we don’t really mind it! Why shouldn’t we deserve all of these things. Also while writing this, I’m realizing that these would make some pretty great Valentine’s Day gifts as well! *wink wink

Is It Bikini Season Already?!

For Love & Lemons Ibiza Bikini Top / Bottom – $275 

It isn’t. But I’m headed to Puerta Vallarta at the end of the month to celebrate one of my favorite girls getting married in 2016 and after assessing what I would be packing with me, I realized that I could probably use a few more swimsuits. It’s been awhile since I’ve actually been on a vacation like this or a beach – which is absurd right, cause I live in California? I didn’t think that I’d be able to find anything that I’d like right now much less know of any retailers having their collections out, but we’re in luck! Last year, we were really into cut-outs in swimsuits, but this year, we’re kind of gravitating towards something a little different. So here are a few things I’ve had my eye on and maybe you can all help me pick out one or two that you like best so we can get it ready for Mexico!

52 Lists Project

I wanted to take some time today to share with you all a really great present for the special people in your life. If this book looks familiar, it’s because you may have noticed that I featured it in my Christmas Wish List for 2015. While I didn’t receive it as a present this year, I did gift it to my mother who I thought would enjoy documenting her 2016 in lists and what’s important to her so that she can look back on it someday.

We’re so happy to be promoting 52 Lists Project because not only is it sold out in stores nationwide and backordered on Amazon because it’s selling like hotcakes, but it was also written by Moorea Seal who is the owner of one of my favorite boutiques back home in Seattle. Anyone remember this post from the summer when I stopped by her shop for the first time and fell in looooove?!

The journal is beautiful. I can’t get over all of the pictures I’ve seen on Instagram in which it has been featured. I also can’t wait until I can snag one for myself (if I’m ever going to be able to get one!) Heads up – all my girlfriends can look forward to getting this as a present this year for their birthdays.

Currently Craving:

The worst thing about being sick is all of the things that you can’t eat. Since I’m currently home and sick over Christmas break, my parents have got me on a strict diet that includes no dairy, no butter, no sweets of any kind, and nothing that will make me even sicker. I realize I  did this to myself so they’re really not to blame, but it’s torture! I’ve been having a very heavy craving for duck pate on toast – 25 year old me is so refined these days! – and not having it over the holidays is kind of a huge bummer. I haven’t even made it into the city yet to have all of my favorite meals. Happy holidays to sick little ‘ol me! Current status: starving.

What You’ll Wear to Ring in 2016

Modern-Citizen Handkerchief Draped Dress – $88

Can I just say this? I don’t like New Year’s very much. I think the holiday (if you can even call it that) is completely overrated. There’s so much pressure to have plans and do something very extravagant and as I’m getting older, that’s just not something that I want to do. I just want to have a nice meal and chill. Except this year, we have a Gatsby’s themed party to attend so that’s more exciting than any other day. Last year though, my friends and I spent almost $100 on tickets to see Mayer Hawthorne at some club in San Francisco. Now I love Mayer Hawthorne, but I didn’t love this event. It was crowded, a little bit uncomfortable, and just not worth the money we paid for it. Whatever the case, we’re not going to slum it for New Year’s Day so you won’t be seeing us in leggings or sweats so here are some last minute grabs for whatever event you’re going to.

Obsessed Lately:

I don’t know how it began, but a couple of months ago, my team had found out that another team upstairs had been getting into puzzles. Not wanting to feel left out, we started a friendly competition. It didn’t last long because the other team got bored with their puzzles, but our team had kept on going. We are now on our 3rd puzzle together so when I stumbled upon this one of a vinyl collection on Cool Material, I felt like it was screaming my name. I really did debate purchasing it for a good minute. I was never really into puzzles as a kid, but I still remember seeing stores at the mall that were just dedicated to them. I used to wonder who would go into these stores, now I realize it’s 25-year old me.
