We weren’t exactly warned about how spread out the city of Los Angeles is, haha. As much as we try to walk around every city we’re in, it was nearly impossible this time. So we spent maybe 2 hours on trains and buses…per day. To its credit, though, our hostel was in the perfect location for getting around. We stayed at the Orange Drive Hostel–literally … Continue reading 5 Days in Los Angeles
This is where a sarcasm font would really come in handy. “Eating Well” in this case means eating delicious things that are definitely not good for us. But boy are they worth it! Our very first stop in LA, besides dropping our things off at the hostel in Hollywood, was In-N-Out Burger. You really can’t go wrong with an old-fashioned burger/fries/pink lemonade. Also, we were … Continue reading Eating Well in LA.
Follow my blog with Bloglovin There’s something about a good music festival that just sucks us right in. It could be the sunshine. Or the lemonade. Or the dancing. It could be the feeling of watching a handful of bands you love in the same day. Or maybe it’s the fact you’re surrounded by thousands of really happy people listening to really good music. You … Continue reading Festival Fashions
On very rare occasions, the stars line up and place a bunch of your favourite spots in the same immediate area. Such is the case with “the steps by the War Memorial” in downtown St. John’s. Now, don’t get us wrong, downtown is FULL of lovely places. If we both made a list of “Five Favourite Places I’ve Ever Been”, downtown St. John’s would make … Continue reading The Steps by the War Memorial
This post isn’t just for prom, either. It’s also for that dress you bought for a work holiday party–or formal night on that family cruise back in 2010–and just haven’t worn it since. Let’s be honest, here. Sequins are pretty. Maybe that’s why we find them so irresistible? (“Oooooooooooooooo sequins!!”) And maybe that’s why we think it’s such a shame to wear something so pretty … Continue reading Sequins: They’re Not Just for Prom Anymore.
For the past four years, we’ve spent many a day decorating cakes, cupcakes, and cookies. We’ve designed and decorated some pretty intricate-looking treats. Despite this, we were nowhere near prepared for how beautiful traditional henna is. Last month, we had the chance to meet the lovely Parinita and try henna for the first time. Rather than attempt an explanation to those of you unfamiliar with … Continue reading Local Love for Henna Body Art
As a hairdresser, you would think I’d listen to my own advice: don’t bleach it too much, use treatments between each lightening process, use thermal protectant, don’t use super hot water, etc… Unfortunately, I’m stubborn and didn’t listen. As a result, my hair is fried to shit. (Okay, it’s not THAT bad…but it’s bad.) Let’s go back to last year this time when I had beautiful, healthy … Continue reading How Powder Room D Wigs are Saving my Hair
