Hannah was supposed to be doing laundry, and Zoe was supposed to be in line at the DMV- but did any of that get done?

Of course not. 

Instead, we went grocery shopping and made our way over to Zoe’s Studio Apartment in Hollywood, ate quesadillas and read Paris Vogue. 

Then, on a whim and the realization that the lighting outside on the Fire Escape was perfect, we decided to shoot.

Because we were at Zoe’s apartment, Hannah dressed up in Zoe’s clothes.

So with the Hollywood sign in view, we tested out camera skills… We’re still working on it. 

Here’s what we wore:

Hey there lovelies!

We thought we’d share some of the things we’ve been loving this past month or so!

Some fashion/beauty, some music, and some other fun stuff!



Hey there everyone!

First off, I’ve been sucked down the black-hole called Pinterest. I started an account late last year, but never really got the hang of it. I’m a tumblr girl for sure.

But, for one of my assignments for my Business for Social Media class last quarter, we had to use Pinterest to create mood boards, and suddenly, I was kinda into Pinterest.

Though I still religiously tumbl, my Pinterest has become an extension of my online inspiration. While I love the fluidity and mish-mash that is my tumblr, I do love the organization of Pinterest.

Number Two- My Zara Birks.

So if you follow my personal blog –kick up your heels- , you might have read my post about ‘The Ugly Sandal Trend’ and my slow but sure decent into loving the trend.

So, during one of my routine trips to Zara, I broke down and bought a pair. And I LOVE THEM.

They’re incredibly comfortable and perfect for summer, and I’ve worn them almost everyday since I got them.

Threee: Bastille’s cover of No Scrubs

First of all, I love Bastille, but I’m not particularly a fan of TLC’s song No Scrubs. But when Zoe played Bastilles cover, I fell in love. I literally haven’t stopped listening to it. Here’s the link (click me!)


Nude lipstick.

Don’t get me wrong; I love a good red lip. Or pink lip or orange lip or plum lip. But there’s something about a nude lip and a cat-eye, or a nude lip and smoky eye that is just so effortless. I watched Lisa Eldrige’s Alexa Chung makeup tutorial (link here) and she used the Rimmel Nude Delight on Alexa. And I knew I had to own it. I’ve worn it almost every day since. Its perfect and creamy and I love it.

Two other shades that Ive been loving are Rimmel’s Rose Blush and Revlon’s Pink Pearl.




1. Sam Edelman Birks.

They look like birks but with a little spice, i.e the leopard print. They’re pretty much the only shoes I wear. Easy, simple, but with just enough edge. And also, they go with everything black.



2. Merci’s Eau de Camille

Literally smells like I frolicked through a garden. Trust me when I tell you, the French know perfume.



3. Overalls.

Farmer chic. I feel like a kid again, but this time when I dress myself, the end result is actually cute. But thank you to everyone you flattered me when I was a child and paired overalls with purple silk frog-covered pjs.



4. Lana Del Rey’s “Brooklyn Baby”

“yah my boyfriends pretty cool, but he’s not a cool as me…”

I might be single but I still feel like a badass every time I hear that verse. Haven’t heard it? Here’s a link (click me!)


Finally: Hannah & Zoe’s Ultimate Favorite

The Giambattista Valli Fall 2014 Couture Show.

Enough said.

Here are our favorite pieces:
