I’m a huge fan of what I like to call “bubbles”, i.e.- boba for the more technical people out there. It’s like a game to try and sip all of the bubbles through the straw as quick as I can, which could be a pretty dangerous game with this particular bubbly spiked dirty chai latte recipe, but then again, you can’t go too wrong with this deliciousness.
We brought Robin in to share her twist on this classic drink for a perfectly creepy (hello, coffee ice cube skulls), yet perfectly tasty Fall cocktail. Of course, you can always skip the liquor and whip this up for your next morning coffee, though it may may the ice skulls a little more questionable. But hey, it takes a village, you know?!…

Have I ever mentioned that just about EVERY TIME we travel, there is bad weather? I’m not trying to jinx myself or anything, but I’m not exactly a lucky charm when it comes to rain and cold in my recent adventures. For the most I’ve been able to over look it, especially when it comes to beaches considering Jared and I both burn in about 2.5 seconds anyways, but I was totally not prepared for the cold weather that was Boston and Hurricane Joaquin leftovers!
Not to worry though, because we’re still here to bring you our favorites for our Instagrammable guide to Boston! I just had to duck into a few stores for a heavier coat, gloves, hat, and an umbrella, first. I was all smiles riiiiight after I stopped myself from crying after I accidentally spilled hot coffee over my head when the wind blew my brand new hat off and I instinctively tried to catch it with my right hand that I was carrying my latte in. Good times, you guys, good times.
I think Jared was actually genuinely nervous I was going to have a mental breakdown in the middle of Copley Square at that moment (I’d had a rough day thus far in general), but to both of our surprises, I didn’t. I just threw some gloves down in anger and started prancing back to the hotel to wash up.it’s really not always as pretty as online, ha!
If only you could’ve been there, at least our photo-worthy recs will get you started…

Okay, this post may have an identity crisis of some sort. I couldn’t decide if it was a DIY or Recipe considering it’s technically food which would be a recipe, but you’re not actually cooking anythings, just constructing items. Do you see my dilemma here? The struggle is real! Either way, these DIY mini monster eyeball donuts are delicious regardless of what you call them!
For all of you Moms out there looking for a quick and run treat for the kids that requires all of 2.5 seconds to make, these are it! If you can compile a s’more, then you can definitely make these little monster eyes!…
With several Holiday events on the books for this Fall, I, Erin, am working on getting my bar cart stocked, styled, and ready for the upcoming action. Not only does a bar cart add a fun, retro element to any gathering, but it can also serve as a fantastic design focal point in our homes.
I like to add visual interest to my cart by playing with contrasting textures, so I whipped up a DIY bar cart runner to drape over the top and help soften the otherwise smooth and crisp cart and barware elements. Now, can you guess what home improvement store item I used to make this pattern?!

For those of you that we got to hang out with at the Skinnygirl® Cocktails Tastemakers Houston DIY event a few weeks ago, we had a blast! It never hurts when a get-together involves cocktails and DIY’ing, but we were so excited to get to hang out with you for a little crafting and conversation!
For those of you not in the Houston area, I’m excited to share the pretty little details of the event with you and we’d love to host more of these events in different cities, so fingers crossed we can come to a city near you soon (be sure to leave us a comment below with your choice location!).
To kick things off, we naturally had to have cutely bottled Skinnygirl® Cocktails for starters. The theme of the event was based around the Skinnygirl® Cocktails Cucumber Vodka, so we stayed true to form with “cucumber” decorated macarons, open faced cucumber sandwiches, and cocktails donned with green garnishes…
