EVERYTHING WE have loved in the first month of 2015, from clothes, to avocados, to Jimi Hendrix and back again.



Almost famous- Would watch just for Penny Lane’s outfits alone. The blue dress and embroidered shoes she is wearing as her stomach is getting pumped is such a look. 

Jimi Hendrix Hear my Train a Comin’- A documentary about one of our favorite artists, and it’s on Netflix. 

Pulp Fiction- Classic.

Electrick Children- One of India’s all time favorite movies.



Both Not that Kind of Girl and Pure talk about things that are never spoken aloud. Dunham’s book is lighthearted, funny, and awkward at times, like opening up your middle school yearbook. Ray’s book is definitely grittier and more intense.



Soft bralettes– We facetimed each other the other day to find out we had both bought similar soft bras from Free People. It’s no surprise really, they are super cheap, comfortable, & cute. Emma’s here & India’s here.

Birkenstocks– India has been traveling a lot lately and her shoe of choice for car rides and planes are the Arizona black leather Birkenstocks. 

Mowgli Sweats– Another travel essential. Mowgli has awesome tie dye sweatshirts and sweatpants. Buy them at Swell or Urban Outfitters. 

Forever 21 Yoga Shorts– Lulu lemon quality at Forever 21 price. The cut & pattern are amazing, and these shorts could double as swim bottoms.

Avocado- Spread on toast with a little lemon and chili flakes, or just eaten plain after you have salt and peppered and added balsamic vinegar in the empty well of the open faced avocado. 

Cold Brew Coffee– A new refreshing way to get your caffeine fix. We like Stumptown and Secret Squirrel.

Vita Coco Cafe– Yet another refreshing way to get your caffeine.

Buff Bake Spreads– India has been training everyday for her runway in February, and this is her post workout snack. Protein packed & with all natural ingredients. Goes great on apples, brown rice bread, or in a smoothie.

Yogi Tea– Emma wakes up every morning and has a cup of their detox tea.

Lush Products– Everyone is going crazy over the Lush bath bombs right now. Our favorites are Golden Wonder & Northern Lights.  Also grab their Buffy bar! Emma’s favorite thing from lush. Use it in the shower and rub it all over your skin to exfoliate and moisturize it so when you hop out of the shower you don’t need to put on lotion. 

Moleskin Notebooks– Most bookstores sell these in packs of three. Come in a variety of sizes and colors. Emma keeps a grey one in her purse wherever she goes.

Sleep Cycle App- This app monitors your sleep and wakes you up at points when you are in the lightest sleep. Result is you wake up feeling refreshed instead of groggy.

Orgonite– Layered metals and minerals in a pyramid that give off certain energy. Read more about it here.
