TWINK'S ALL-TIME FAVORTES!

It's June 1st! Since it's our birth month (I'm on the 27th and Sis is on the 25th) we thought we'd go deeper into the Twink + Sis pyche and share some our all-time favorites -- the things we can't live without! So, without further ado, here are mine!

Hats are basically the greatest invention ever. You could have the dirtiest, "overwhelmed mom of a toddler" hair, throw a great fedora on, and you look instantly stylish. I love Rag & Bone's hats -- I have several and wear them constantly. 

I have been drinking Bulletproof coffee for about a year and a half now, and I don't think I will ever go back to life without it. I blend grass-fed ghee, Bulletproof Brain Octane & Collagelatin and cinnamon with my hot coffee, in the blender each morning. It's the best way to wake up! I feel energized and nourished. I'm a fat-aholoic!

Vintage rugs make a house. At least they do mine! They bring so much beauty and character! My good friend and designer, Peri Perry introduced me to Lawrence of LaBrea. If you live in the LA area they will bring rugs of your choosing to you, to try in your home! Love that kind of service!

I'm all about natural beauty products, particularly when they go over your entire body. I love the smell and feel of Nubian Heritage Coconut Papaya Body Lotion. I use it every day post-shower!

I love taking Brixton for afternoon outings to The Brentwood Country Mart. They have the cutest shops and host movie nights for kids in their courtyard, every Monday night in the summer!

I never knew workout socks had to be anything special until I discovered Balega Hidden Comfort Socks about five years ago. LIFE. CHANGING. Particularly if you do any type of high impact sport like running or dance. 

 

 

A really good citrus juicer has improved my hosting abilities tremendously. I can make lemonade or fresh squeezed orange juice so quickly. We are sticklers for fresh drinks and make our own lemonade for a lot of our parties. The Breville Citrus Press Pro makes my hosting life so much easier.

 

This BLK DNM leather jacket is a wardrobe staple and it's under $1K. I wear it with everything. Enough said. 

 

If you had x-ray vision into my body, you would probably find a sea of GT Dave's Gingerade Kombucha. I've had at least one a day (if not a few. hehe) for about 7 years. Life just doesn't feel complete without it!

John Robshaw is the OG of high-end, exotic textiles and I'm a huge fan of his beautiful pillows and super soft blankets. I have this hand-stitched coverlet on my bed. It's dreamy.

A really good day (or bad one) ends with Justin's Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups. I believe they taste particularly amazing chilled, so I always keep my stash in the fridge. 

 

Jason gave this Jennifer Meyer initial pendant to me (in a "b") after I had Brixton. It's so dainty and beautiful, and reminds me of the greatest gift ever!!! I never take it off. 

Happy June!!! Just so happens to be my favorite month! ;)

xoxoxo!!

3 STEPS TO LOOK EFFORTLESSLY BEAUTIFUL ON CHRISTMAS MORNING

Christmas morning is for special family bonding and delicious brunch, so no one wants to spend a lot of time primping. But let's face it, we always want to look cute! With a little prep beforehand, and just a couple of minutes when you wake up, you can look stylish, glowy and gorgeous, without missing any of the festivities!

1. TREAT YOURSELF TO SOME STYLISH COZINESS.

J. Crew makes great PJ's. Their prints are classic, but their cuts are a little more slim and modern. Grab some warm and cozy socks to go with them. I love their marled cotton socks. Complete your Christmas morning look with a great pair of slippers. I personally prefer men's slippers -- I like their classic look.

2. MOISTURIZE.

Revive dry winter skin with a good moisturizer and lip balm. Lips need love too! Beautycounter makes fantastic, non-toxic products. Their Dew Skin tinted moisturizer gives glow, sheer coverage.

3. BEAUTIFY WITH MINIMAL MAKE-UP.

Brows have become of utmost importance to me lately. A stronger brow can really make magic on your face! Glossier's Boy Brow is brow color and gel, all in one. Then give yourself quick cheek and lip color with RMS' Lip2Cheek. Now you're refreshed and ready to see what Santa brought!

I couldn't be more excited to have one of my best gal pals - actress, photographer and super-mama, BETH RIESGRAF - as a guest contributor on the blog today! Known for her role as Parker on TNT's hit series "Leverage," Beth is the star of USA's upcoming drama "Complications."  She is beautiful, stylish and one of my favorite people. So, naturally, I asked Beth to share her MOTHER'S DAY gift guide picks with us! Let's see what's on her list!

POLAROID 250 LAND CAMERA

You can buy and choose from an assortment of cool instant cameras and gear at Urban Outfitters like the Fujifilm Instax 210 Wide Format Instant Camera OR you could look online for a Polaroid 250 Land Camera. Choose one that has been AAA battery tested, has an updated battery holder, and comes with the user's manual. Either way, you can get really creative and put together a little book of polaroids for her! (and yes, this may take a little work... but if you can find one they are amazing. And please remember that your mother carried you for 9 months so it's sort of the least you could do. KIDDING) #WorthIt
