Annual Pumpkin Painting 

Hey Loves! F & J here!

Every year since 2013 we have had an annual painting pumpkin party! We pick a Disney pair and paint them on little pumpkins to celebrate the Halloween season. In the past we have painted Mike and Sully from Monsters Inc., Woody and Buzz from Toy Story, Rapunzel and Pascal from Tangled, and Lilo and Stitch! This year we decided to paint Chip and Mrs. Potts from Beauty and the Beast!

Give us suggestions to what we should paint next year in the comments below!

Happy Halloween!

Easy Caramel Snickerdoodles

426624f6-28c7-459e-baa2-bc8165997a22

Hey Loves! F & J here!

Fall is definitely here  and with the colder weather outside and the rain we are finding ourselves inside more during the day. One of the things we have been doing more of to keep ourselves busy is baking! We found this super simple recipe on Pinterest and decided to give it a try.

All you need is a container of Pillsbury Crescent Rolls, some caramels (we used the Kraft ones that people use for making caramel apples) and some cinnamon and sugar.

We mixed the cinnamon and sugar in a bowl and set it aside for later. Then popped open the crescent rolls and started ripping pieces off to wrap around the caramels. Once we finished rolling the dough into balls, with the caramels in the middle, we rolled them in the cinnamon and sugar mix.

Then all you need to do is bake them at 350 degrees for about 12 minutes! Super easy and super quick!

Personally, they were not our favorite cookies but they were definitely a hit with everybody else! Someone said they were heavenly and they were all eaten! If by chance they manage to last long enough to cool off, just pop them in the microwave for a little to heat them up before eating them!

If you have any favorite recipes we should try please let us know in the comments below!

Love,

FabFitFun Unboxing – Fall 2017

Hey Loves! F & J here!

We finally decided to give into the craze and get a subscription to FabFitFun! Every season you get a box filled with tons of fun and useful goodies to try out while paying a fraction of the retail value! After considering to join for far too long, F decided that she couldn’t hold out any longer and lets just say she was not disappointed one bit.

As you can see in the pictures above there are a ton of full sized products that range from beauty to general life style products. F was most excited to try out the carbon tooth powder which is supposed to help whiten teeth. She also loved the mud mask! It was super easy to use and left her skin feeling smooth! But I by far F’s favorite product was the cozy wrap which she uses as blanket! It is so soft and warm, and such a pretty color!

F can’t wait to use all her new items, and definitely can’t wait to receive her next box. J is pretty sure she will be hopping on the subscription train too!

Na Pali Coast Rafting and Snorkel

napalicoastnapalicoast2aaDCIM100GOPROHey Loves! F & J here!

While we were in Kauai we got the chance to take a rafting trip down the Na Pali Coast and snorkel! Neither of us had ever been snorkeling before so we were a bit nervous but as soon as we were in the water we loved it!

On the rafting trip down the coast we had the chance to see dolphins and Hawaiian Sea Turtles! The dolphins put on quite the show and came super close to our raft.

While we were snorkeling we got to see some fish but our favorite find underwater was the octopus we found! Once we got over the initial shock that we were swimming in the water with an octopus we found it really cool to watch him move from rock to rock and see how well he blended in with the reef.

We also had the chance to go into some sea caves and see some of the Na Pali Coast that has been used in famous movies and tv shows including Jurassic Park, Pirates of the Caribbean and Bay Watch. The tour guides were also very good at sharing the local legends with us.

We highly recommend that if you are going to Kauai you book yourself a trip! We booked through Blue Dolphin Charters but there are many different options to choose from. Just remember to bring sunscreen and reapply so you won’t get as badly burned as either of us!

Love,

Be Kind

Hey Loves! F & J here!

We feel like there has been so much negativity in the media, and it makes our hearts hurt. We just wanted to make a post of some things you can do to spread kindness and love. There will never be enough kindness in this word. We want to do our part to make others day, whether that be something small or big, but we believe an act of kindness can go a long way.

Here is a list of small things you could do that could change somebody’s mood for the whole day:

Buy a coffee for the person in front of you- We know that coffee is already expensive for what it is, but spending an extra $5 to cover the person’s coffee in front of you is a small amount to pay to make someone’s day. Whenever we have had it happen to us, it puts a smile on our faces, and we usually try and pay it forward and do it ourselves.

Bake cookies for someone you know, or don’t know – Everyone can have a sweet tooth once in awhile, but what makes them even sweeter is when you receive them from a pure heart. Surprise a friend or a co worker. Or if you’re feeling extra spontaneous you can always drop them off at a local retirement home or fire department.

Give extra flowers to a local hospital- If you are attending a wedding anytime soon and are close with the bride and groom, ask them what they are planning to do with flowers. There are usually too many to take home, and they usually just toss them out. Ask them if you can take them and donate them to a local hospital. They give them to recovering patients and the beautiful flowers get to live longer. It’s a win win.

Write a note- Leave a note for someone you care about letting you know how much you care for them, and we can guarantee it will make them smile. And it’s super inexpenive if not free.

Donate used clothes- Whenever you go through your clothes instead of tossing them, give them so someone who would use them. We like to find places that don’t resell clothes but donate to them in need. Like a women’s shelter, or to a charity collecting to help those affected by natural disasters. Also donate bras too, they are high in demand!

Use manners- Simply asking a person how their day is going, or saying please and thank you can go a long way. It sounds so elementary and simple but in our rushed lives it is something easily dropped.

Go out of your way to let the people you know, that you love them too. Sometimes we often forget to let the people we care most about know how much they mean to us. It sounds silly but just call them, or send them a text, even a sweet note in the mail. People love to know they are thought about and cared for. Usually an act of kindness causes people to want to pay it forward, or at least spread a little happiness in their future interactions. You also don’t know what that person is going through, and can change the whole course of their day, even week.

Most important just be kind. It costs nothing to be a good person. We can all be sweeter, and treat everyone as equals, because when it comes down to it we are all just skin and bones living our lives.

Let us know in the comments below what you do to be kind, and spread happiness.

Love,

F & J

Current Obsessions

Hey Loves! F & J here!

 

We felt like it has been too long since we put together a list of our favorites, so finally we made one for you guys!  We feel like even though these are current obsessions they are also our fall faves.

Dermalogica Superfoliant Daily – We are so in love with how smooth our skin feels after using this exfoliator. It is so gentle that is is almost hard to believe it works so well. It helps keep our skin smooth while the seasons change.

Pixi by Petra Hydrating Milky Mist –  It’s super easy and convenient to use. It’s very moisturizing which is perfect for the dry fall days. It’s light and not over moisturizing so it won’t leave you feeling oily.

Butter London Nail Lacquer– We love the brand Butter London and we love how quick drying their nail lacquer is. This color screams fall but in a more unique hue.

James Bay Pandora Radio Station – This Pandora station has been on all the time for both of us. All the songs give off a nice cozy vibe, and are perfect for a fall day.

Cozy Socks – Our toes are the first thing to get cold with the days getting colder. So in order to be completely cozy we grab a pair of comfy socks. They definitely are must and adorable too.

Vooray Duffle Bag – Whether we want a cute duffel to bring to the gym with us, or a cute weekend getaway bag we are crushing on Vooray’s collection of printed and plain bags! They are amazing quality, reasonable priced, and so aesthetically pleasing.

If you have any favorite you’ve been loving please don’t hesitate to share them! We are always searching for new things to love.

Love,

F & J
