Today’s Drink:

“La Marina Mai Tai”
(Plantation Dark Rum, Bacardi Anejo, Mt. Gay Black Barrel, curaçao, cold pressed Valencia and Hamlin orange juice, organic agave nectar, fresh lime juice, and orgeat.)

Bartender: Michael
(La Marina NYC – 348 Dyckman Street)

If you haven’t seen our photos of La Marina yet, you’re missing out. Feast your eyes on this cocktail. I typically don’t drink rum, but this Mai Tai sounded far too quenching to deny. This fruity concoction was super easy to sip/chug, and to top it all off, that’s an edible flower. I’m really rooting for edible flowers in all of my drinks now. Thank you for the destination drinks, Michael!

Abigail – Crop top and shorts, Pink Sheep Heiress. Heels, Sam Edelman.

Emily – Romper, Pink Sheep Heiress. Belt, Helmut Lang. Heels, Zara. Sunnies, Dior.

 Fell in love with a couple pieces from Pink Sheep Heiress. Exhibit A: this green suede matching bralette and shorts. Exhibit B: this deep V black romper. Stylish and sexy at the same time, which can be a difficult feat. Appreciating the heat these days for our skimpy wardrobes and sky scraping heels. Shout out to Emily’s strappy blue stilettos! Also, strangely in love with this ugly brick wall.

Abigail – Hat, Free People. Dress, 2020ave. Shoes, Senso.

Emily – Tee, Brandy Melville. Skirt & Hat, Forever 21. Sandals, Urban Outfitters. Sunnies, Nasty Gal.

We’re just so colorful sometimes. Okay, so not everyone has to wear color and prints during Spring. We typically opt for black, grey, and white basics. I went for something super simple – a grey dress that probably could pass as a nightie, but I don’t give a damn. Emily dressed up a plain white tee with a slit maxi skirt, perfect for vacation packing. Speaking of vacation packing, Emily is wanderlusting in Morocco and Spain, so follow our Instagram!

Stanton Social

Today’s Drink:

“Strawberry Fields”
(Grey Goose Citron, muddled fresh strawberries, lemon syrup, fresh lemon & a Riesling floater.)

Bartender: Dante
(Stanton Social – 99 Stanton Street)

I can only hope there are muddled strawberries in Heaven. This drink was phenomenal! All the lemon/citrus flavors blended perfectly with the strawberry. It was nice to have different consistencies in this drink.

I love sweet, and I especially love lemonade style cocktails. Although, it wasn’t specifically a lemonade drink, it had all the makings for it. This drink hit both my criteria, in the most delicious way. I highly recommend it!

Host Committee

 This past weekend we were fortunate enough to get a big group of our friends together, and go to a New York Yankees game. None of this would have been possible without our new fav company, Host Committee. If you’re looking to host a group of people at an event/game/concert etc, check out their website beforehand!

Host Committee is a group ticketing service, which allows you to get a large group together and not panic about having to sit in different sections. They also let everyone in your group pay separately, aka no more having that one person pay $1,000 and freak out at everyone for weeks. The more guests you have, the more likely you’ll receive super cool perks. Our name was on the Yankees scoreboard, and we all got free hats!

Next big adventure you plan, be sure to go to www.hostcommittee.com first. They are SUCH a pleasure to work with that you’ll want to do it again and again.

So, we found our new favorite place in Manhattan. Just off the A train at 200th street lies La Marina, a bar and restaurant that you would think is on some tropical island somewhere. Based off the photos online, we knew we wanted to be in flowy airy pieces, so we both pulled out a sheer cover up. Emily’s black kimono looked effortless over her shorts and darling new gladiators. I went for a white sheer to match my denim, and added lots of gold jewelry. Check back tomorrow for a cocktail review from La Marina, and keep an eye on our Instagram for a lot of trips there for beach parties.

Today is a black and white prints kind of day. Strolling around Union Square picking up lunch and heading to Gramercy, we stopped and appreciated the spaciousness. For the first time in a while I sported a maxi dress. I knew for a fact I couldn’t handle feeling constricted, so this front slit made me extra happy. Emily went for a casual french look (I always say that with stripes and red lipstick.) All hail black and white patterns.

Wedding Clutch

WanderLust-Girls-Clare-V-Clutch

Tom’s deodorant (wild lavender), Burt’s Bees firming day lotion (with SPF 30), Cleanse by Lauren NapierEstee Lauder lucidity powder, Clare V. clutch, Rivet & Sway sunglasses, Band-AidVera Wang Princess perfume, By Terry lipstick (Innocent Kiss), Rescue Skin moisturizer.

Wedding season is upon us, which means the bags are getting smaller. Sometimes it can be hard to narrow down what to pack in your wedding clutch. So, here is our wedding list of essentials.

Firstly, we highly suggest a Clare V. clutch, because they’re adorable. Secondly, with all that dancing, drinking, and partying you’re going to have to do some damage control the morning after… Thank God you packed Band-Aid’s, moisturizer, make-up remover and giant sunnies to shield you from a hang over’s worst nightmare, sunlight.

If you’re like us, you’ll be a dancing machine all night. That means you’ll be needing to do some touch ups! Don’t forget to pack some lipstick, pressed powder, deodorant and perfume.

Finally, prevention, prevention, prevention. Sunblock is necessary at an outdoor wedding. You could be sitting there for hours, and that mid day sun is lookin’ to leave it’s mark. What will you be packing this wedding season?

Xx, Emily
