Road Trip To Zion, Bryce, Lake Powell, and Antelope Canyon

We’ve had this trip on our bucket list for quite some time and was so excited to finally get to experience these beautiful places for ourselves. After taking a look at the map, we decided the best route was to fly to Las Vegas to start our road trip. We knew we would be on…

Our Lovely Copper Kitchen Sink from Sinkology

When we first moved into our house one of the things I noticed right away was the black kitchen counters and black kitchen sink. They were fairly new and in great condition so everything was fine except for the color. Fast forward 4 years and scrolling through Instagram I found Sinkology. Sinkology produces products that…

This small town is often overshadowed by their bigger neighbor but many who visit will fall in love with the colorful buildings and the small town feel with streets lined…

PinkBlush Clothing Review

These past couple of years I haven’t invested in many new clothes at all. Being pregnant the twice kind of puts a damper on the whole shopping experience. It’s difficult enough finding flattering maternity wear, but also just as difficult to find comfortable postpartum wear that doesn’t involve sweat pants. Like many other expectant mothers I’ve talked to, I was hesitant to spend money on maternity wear that I knew I would only wear for a few months of my life.

Sunnyvale’s Best Boba Cafe, Boba Drive!

With so much competition in the Bay Area boba tea Market, you need to be special to stand out from the crowd. We love Sunnyvale’s newest addition, Boba Drive! They make all of our favorite milk teas and offer non-dairy creamer, fresh milk, almond milk, and oat milk! Their variety of fruit-infused drinks is what keeps us coming back. Boba Drive offers a wide selection of fruit teas made with house-made syrups that they blend from real fruit.

Tofu Tomato Poke with Mori-Nu Silken Tofu

With summer in full swing, our garden is thriving with heirloom tomatoes. I’m constantly thinking of new dishes to utilize them and showcase their beautiful colors and flavors. When Mori-Nu Silken Tofu approached us to create a recipe for them I was so excited and had the perfect dish in mind. I’ve always enjoyed tofu dishes and love how versatile and easy tofu is to work with. It’s wonderful raw or cooked and is perfect for hot or cold weather recipes.

We wanted simple, modern, and comfortable furniture so we turned to Rove Concepts. We love the quality of their indoor furniture and their outdoor products didn’t disappoint!

Packit Cool This Summer and All Year Long!

We’re big on cooking and eating healthy so packing lunch is an almost every day thing for us. Sometimes we pack dinner leftovers for lunch the next day, or we do meal preps, or we pack some fresh fruits and veggies we get at the Farmer’s Market. We’ve found one of the best way to keep our food fresh and appetizing is with PackIt’s freezable bags and customizable bento containers. Below are some of the products we’ve sampled.

Going Green!

Over the past years we have made small steps in our daily lives to become more aware of our impact on the planet and try to cut down on waste. Although our time on earth is not permanent, the choices that we make do make a difference to future generations. Whether it is cutting out single use plastic straws, or bringing refillable bottles along instead of using single use cups, every little thing makes a difference. Of course we aren’t perfect and occasionally kick ourselves for forgetting to bring our stainless steel boba straw along, but we are trying our best! Below are some products and changes we have made to our daily lifestyle to lessen our footprint on the planet. We hope it can spark a little change and give you some easy ideas to go green. We would love to hear what things you have done to go green as well!
