Beginning of 2017 in a Nutshell

March 6, 2017

We’ve gotten quite the crazy start to 2017. So we created a video so you could see the the beginning of 2017 in a nutshell.

We began the year in Ireland surrounded by lust worthy Irish accents. Since then we’ve said goodbye to Christmas by treating our tree as a shotput. Ventured to Boston, Pennsylvania, San Diego, and LA! We’ve gotten topless in Brooklyn, danced our buns off all over the US, covered shows at NYMD and NYFW. Got nostalgic at a Train concert and listened to some new stuff from our boys from Jet Black Alley Cat. Chilled with Gwen Stefani and rode a carousel. Went to a million different events. Saw some old friends, made some new friends. And… of course, drank a lot of alcohol. Clearly. 

This is a new feature for us where we’ll be doing little compilation videos every few months so you can get a taste of some of the stuff you may not see on our social media channels. A short and sweet round up of the past few months. We have many more adventures coming up that are bound for the next video. Stay tuned for clips from the Seattle Food and Wine festival, Snow mobiling in BC, Scandinavian baths, Tennessee, Monster Truck Rallies, Mohegan Sun casino, Kaleo/The Lumineers concert and so much more! 

Also, this song has been playing on repeat at casa de WanderLust. The new Kings of Leon album Walls is a favorite of ours. Every song is so so good. Don’t you love those albums where it’s all amazing and you don’t have to keep going back to Spotify and changing the song?! Especially when you’re getting ready for a night out. That’s the worst. Okay, I’m digressing a lot. 

Let us know if you like the video!

Happy Monday everyone πŸ™‚

Bike Bandit Motorcycle Gear

February 25, 2017

Our obsession with motorcycles doesn’t just stop at the bike itself. We love motorcycle gear as well, especially Bike Bandit motorcycle gear! Mostly because even though we don’t have a bike people will assume that we do based on our outfits. (Have any of you guys seen the episode of Friends where Joey wears an entire Porsche ensemble and covers cardboard boxes with a cover and tells hot girls his Porsche is sleeping underneath…….. yeah, that’s us.) Okay, not entirely. We spend a lot of time on the back of bikes, so it’s important for us to have the proper attire. We usually check the Bike Bandit site first when perusing for the right motorcycle jackets for women. They look cute and are still safe at the same time.

The site has more than just protective gear. They have a wide selection of motorcycle parts too, from Pirelli motorcycle tires to some pretty sweet saddle bags (perfect for holding our heels to change into once we get to our destination!) A lot of our friends with bikes order from Bike Bandit, so it comes highly recommended. They even have a really cool blog! Their most recent story about the best motorcycle boots had me craving for warm weather in NYC, so we could grab a pair of biker boots and hit the open roads… on the back of someones motorcycle haha. We’re in San Diego at the moment and the sunny weather is a bit of a tease. Anyone in Cali want to go for a ride?? Are we fan girling a bit? For those of you who have met us in person this bike banter makes a lot of sense. 

We’re already looking forward to next years Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride! We also plan on attending Babes Ride Out this year too, if any of you guys will be there let us know!

7 Ways to Cure a Hangover!

December 31, 2016

Well, we made it guys! New Years 2016!! Blah blah Blah… I’m sick of those Facebook posts about how great things happened this year and the cup is half full. I’m a positive person, but this year kind of sucked. I won’t dwell, but I want to make sure you guys and myself start 2017 off with a good attitude and a clear head. AKA as little of a hangover as possible. I’m sure you know all these, but as a reminder, here are 6 ways to cure a hangover: 

1. Drink water before you go out. In between drinks and about 16-20 ounces before you go to bed! You’ll feel like it’s too much, but believe me, it’s not! Gatorade is great for replacing electrolytes, but the sugar can cause you to feel worse. If you can, stick to pure, simple H2O. 

2. Carb load! Make sure you eat a good meal before you go out, obviously. But, a great help too is having toast in the morning it will bring your blood sugar levels back up. 

3. Greasy Food. Okay, it’s not necessarily the type of food you eat before you go out, but we prefer greasy food anyway. (Although beware, greasy food can cause you heart burn.) Just make sure you have a good meal before you go out. Food helps slow the absorption of alcohol, so it will take longer for you to get intoxicated. 

4. Pop some pills! Take an Aspirin or Ibuprofen for your headache. Avoid tylenol, which can be harmful to the liver (haven’t you done enough damage?)

5. Hair of the Dog… unfortunately, will just prolong your hangover. If you just don’t want to deal with it when you wake up, by all means crack open a cold one. However, by doing so you will just be hungover that night. 

6. Alka-Seltzer has been known for years to help an upset stomach. We usually grab an Alka-Seltzer or a charcoal tablet. 

7. Sleep it off the next day if you can! You will probably get a terrible night sleep after drinking so much. Take it easy the next day. People suggest “sweating out the alcohol” with a bit of exercise, but maybe wait till that night or the next day. 

And try and go easy on the champagne, there is so much sugar. Perhaps, just save it for the midnight toast! 

Have such an amazing night everyone! We will be doing a bit of an earlier New Years Eve this year as we hopped over to Ireland to celebrate with all the sexy Irish men… I mean enjoy the….. no it’s the Irish men. Follow along on our Instagram story @WanderLustGirls to see what type of shenanigans we get up to.
