  • Leo (July 23- August 22)

    Happy Birthday Leo!

     

    If you were born between June 21st – July 22 you were born under the sign of the lion. And, quite honestly, ruler of the jungle could not be a more perfect metaphor for you! Loud and personable, Leo's are all about being the center of attention, but for good reason; their creativity and charm makes it hard to look away. As the fifth sign in the zodiac, you fall under the element of fire. Like a lion, the fierceness within a Leo causes greatness. Dedication and hardworking are not words out of your vocabulary. Whether it's being a leader in a project, or staying up late to perfect an essay, your passion leads you to amazing things. Your ruling planet is the Sun, which represents consistency and intensity. Your qualities not only make the funnest sign to be around, but an eclectic, eccentric and true friend.

    Leo Strength Keywords: Creative, passionate, warm-hearted

    Leo Weaknesses Keywords: Arrogant, stubborn, inflexible

     

    Leo's, although great to be around (I mean, who wouldn't want to be around the life of the party?) there are some shortcomings Leo's have. Which is, as contradicting as this may sound, being the life of the party. Always. I mean always. You're inflexible to the notion of being a supporting character even in a conversation with just you and your best friend. You can be egotistic and stubborn, which also plays into the part of being the center of attention. Your inflexibility and headstrong behavior leads you to having tunnel vision, and losing sight of the big picture. Although there are some weaknesses Leo's have, which every sign does, in the right dosage they just are added strengths. Shine on and roar on!

  • Ice Cream, Sherbet, and FroYo - Oh my!

    If you couldn't tell, we're food lovers here. And - if you're anything like me - you go crazy for ice cream. And you pack as many toppings as you can into your single serve cup (single serve? ha! who am I kidding; i eat like a queen) because what's the point of having ice cream without shoveling three tons of crushed oreo's on top? That's not a world I want to live in I can tell you that. For all of you who can't handle dairy products or choose to keep them out of your diet, we've got a few fantastic combination's for you too. We won't let you melt in this heat without having something delicious to cool you down!

     

    Ice Cream

    Salt & Straw- Honey Lavender

    When it comes to ice cream, my favorite is the classic vanilla. I know, I'm boring. I've come to terms with it. Sticks and stones, people! Like I mentioned earlier, I'm a topping gal - so vanilla lets me explore lots of combinations without distracting from the flavor of the ice cream. Think of ice cream (sorbet and frozen yogurt as well) as an outfit, and toppings as an accessory - like our sunglasses. You want the sunglasses to add to your outfit, complement it, and enhance. It's a balance. My go-to toppings are caramel, brownie bits, nuts (preferably almonds) and more caramel sauce. And fudge. How can I forget fudge?! I have a sugar addiction I can't help it! Now, we are located in LA county, about a 30 minute drive from downtown, so I frequent a lot of amazing shops with fantastic combinations that push me out of my comfort zone. There is one shop called Salt & Straw that has a flavor called Honey Lavender that is TO DIE FOR. My second favorite flavor is Sumptown coffee & compartes love nuts - I mean, come on. COFFEE AND ICE CREAM? I don't think I have to explain that one.

     

    Sherbet 

     

    I was was younger I was lactose intolerant. So every summer I ate 0 tubs of ice cream and every bowl of cereal I had was made with soy milk (my life was horrible, I know). I was never a big sherbet eater though; I kind of just ate ice cream anyway and powered through the pain later. Now, my current coworker swears by this sherbet at 31 flavors called wild 'n reckless. It's sour and tart (which doesn't surprise me since all I see him eating is sour patch kids!) with flavors of green apple, raspberry, and fruit punch! It looks like you're eating a magical unicorn or a rainbow, but with one spoonful you'll face will be squished up in delicious tang-y goodness. If you're in to that feeling, then I recommend this flavor for you! You wont be disappointed. Pinky promise!

     

     

     

     

    Frozen Yogurt

    I love yogurt! I don't eat it that often (I actually can't remember the last time I had it), but whenever I do it's like fireworks going off in my mouth. With the rise of veganism, there has been a lot of coconut yogurt brands coming out, and coconut frozen yogurt flavors!  is one of my favorite coconut milk ice cream & frozen yogurt brands. You can't go wrong with their amazing collection! From mocha almond fudge, to mint chocolate chip, and butter pecan - I mean they have a flavor for everyone! Now, you can always make your own coconut frozen yogurt if you would prefer to add your own toppings, and it's very simple. Simply take some of their yogurt, add in whatever mixin's and fixin's you'd like, then pop it in the freezer for 30 or so minutes! Being dairy free has never been so delicious.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

  • Summer Foods

    It has been WAY TOO HOT lately to cook. The last thing I want to do is turn on my stove or oven and make my house hotter than it is already. All I want to do is blast the AC and eat something cold to cool me down. I want to share some of my favorite summer dishes with y’all today. These dishes require barely any cooking, all they require is a bit of assembly and you’re done!

    Summer rolls

    These are so versatile; you can pretty much put anything in it! The most popular combination is veggies, meat, and noodles but I have also seen people make summer rolls out of fruit. For a vegan friendly option, you can add tofu instead of meat. The only cooking required with this one is to make some hot water to dip the rice wrappers in to soften it and then you can fill with whatever you want to your heart’s content.

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Ceviche

    If you love seafood, this one’s for you. It’s a bunch of seafood (usually shrimp or fish, could be a mix of both) marinated with cilantro, tomatoes, red onion, and lime juice. The lime juice cooks the seafood while it chills in the fridge and it makes for a delightful snack when paired with a tostada. For those who are iffy about raw seafood, you can parboil it a bit so it’s not totally raw and it still retains a nice texture.  If you’re feeling fancy, you can add a couple slices of avocado!

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Caprese Salad

    This salad is pretty much idiot proof. Its sliced tomatoes paired with sliced mozzarella and fresh basil leaves. Make sure to get really fresh and ripe tomatoes, good tomatoes make a huge difference in this salad. Top with either a balsamic vinegar drizzle or a pinch of sea salt flakes and baby, you got an easy peasy salad going.

     

     

     

     

    Milk & Cereal

    When I’m feeling extra lazy and can’t be bothered to do anything, my go to meal is milk and cereal. Now that I’m an adult, I can have breakfast for dinner anytime I want. I like milk but milk doesn’t like me so now, I like my frosted flakes with lactaid. But you can have whatever floats your boat or suits your bowels.

     

     

  • Cancer (June 21-July 22)

    Happy Birthday Cancer!

    Cancer Symbol

    If you were born between June 21st – July 22 you were born under the sign of the crab. You are known for being nurturing, caring, and compassionate. Although the fourth sign in the zodiac, you ought to be the 1st; considering how motherly you tend to be! Not only are you sensitive to others, but you are a protector of those you love. Putting your friends, family, and partner first - you will not back down when it comes to people you hold close to your heart. You are a water sign, along with your siblings Scorpio and Pisces, which means you tend to lead your life with your emotions. Because you are the first water sign, you actually feel deeper than any other sign out there.  No wonder the crab is a perfect symbol for you! You're tough on the outside, but a big mush ball of cuteness on the inside. Your ruling planet is the Moon; meaning you love security and a sense of home. So just like a crab, when things get a little overwhelming, you like to retreat back to safe territory.

    Cancer Strength Keywords: Nurturing, Compassionate, Introverted, Protective

    Cancer Weakness Keywords: Moody, Passive-aggressive, Over Emotional

    Coming soon: 3124-FLREV

    Although we can go to Cancers for emotional support, they can sometimes take advantage of that. Cancers can easily read emotions and make it easy for others to open up to them (when they are always there for you and give such great advice - how can you not want to open up?!) but they can abuse that power to get what they want. And you never want to start an argument with a Cancer; unless you're willing to get passive-aggressive comments and responses from them. Because they are the first water sign, the have a hard time controlling how deep they feel the whole spectrum of emotions.. so, it can be daunting to be around them going from one extreme to the next. Trust me, as an Aries, I understand moody tendencies but Cancers can take it to another level. And let us say, since you guys can be over emotional, #NotAllCancers; we don't want to make you guys cry or anything.. I mean - you are our mothers. Regardless of the weaknesses you have (and we all have them!), the zodiac would fall apart without the strong yet tender care of Cancers. You hold us together and help us when we fall apart. And - from the baby of the zodiac to you - we appreciate every bit of you; the good and bad!

  • Summer Fun

    Looking for summer activities to do in SoCal? Well look no more!

    There are bound to be days where you're just kind of sitting around debating on what sounds fun and wind up just staying at home because you can't make up your mind. Today, we will recommend 3 of our favorite summer activities to do for this summer.

     

    Food Festivals

    Food these days have been getting more and more creative. There are tons of new items to try out such as ramen in a boba cup, 2 split bobas in one cup, uni pasta, and tons more. The thing is, they're all so spread apart location wise, its hard to try them all out. The best way to try them all out is at food festivals and events.

    Smorgasburg is a food filled event that happens on ever Sunday in DTLA. They have chicken steaks as big as your face, giant XLB, and garlic noodles piled high with lobster. If you want good food, this is definitely the place to visit!

    626/OC Night Markets. If you're feeling adventurous and craving some Asian food, this is the event to go to! They're located near the Santa Anita Mall and the other is at OC Fairgrounds. Get here early and avoid the crowd!

     

    Don't forget to make some s'mores!

    Bonfires:

    There's nothing more relaxing than hanging out at the beach with a couple of friends in front of a bonfire. A lot of beaches don't permit bonfires anymore but we know Huntington Beach still does for sure and they have fire pits for your bonfires. Huntington beach has a few fire pits that is a few blocks away from DTHB. We suggest getting some food first (DTHB has a great poke place called North Shore Poke Co. that i highly recommend) and then walking down the beach until you get to the fire pits. Get here early because people like to claim the pits early.

     

     

     

    Cute date night idea!

    Drive In Theaters:

    If you're looking for something romantic to do with your SO, we recommend drive in theaters. Drive in theaters are great for a cute date night, relax in your car, bring something to munch on, and turn up the volume. Mission Tiki in Pomona is pretty nice, the radio station they turn you to is pretty clear and they have great prices. Vineland Drive-In in City of Industry is pretty great too! They have a snack bar so if you forget yours, you can go to theirs and check out their snacks.

     

     

    There you have it! Our ideal summer events. We wish you all a happy summer and have fun!

  • Deskersize! Round 2

    Is YOUR summer bod ready?

    It's not too late to get that summer bod ready for Vegas or EDC! If you work a 40 hour desk job, you must think there's no time to go to the gym or you're too tired to go after work. You could always go to the gym before work but between working out or sleeping, getting more sleep is the obvious choice. We have a few moves that you can discreetly do at your desk to get you in shape and build some muscle!

    Show it off!

    SHOULDERS AND ARMS:

    • Try bicep curls, grab a hefty stapler or even a water bottle or two. Start with palms facing up and curl the arm up towards the chest, just like a regular dumbbell. Complete 12-15 reps and switch arms.
    • Desk push-ups. Take a few steps back into a plank position and place your hands on the desk, lean into the desk and slowly push away. Complete 2-3 sets of 12 reps each.

     

    CORE/ABS:

    1. Ab squeezes are a great silent exercise that can be done sitting at your desk while working. Simply take a deep breath while tightening the abdominal muscles and squeeze and hold for 5-10 seconds. Repeat for 12-15 reps.
    2. Desk Crunches are also a smart way to tone your abs at your desk. Simply lean your upper body to your thighs while curling the chest towards the legs. Hold for 10 seconds and release. Complete 12-15 reps.

     

    After a few weeks/months of doing these exercises, you should start feeling a bit stronger and seeing some results. Get read to flaunt yourself at the pool! Have fun!

  • Summer Fashion 101

    Whites, stripes, and florals. Oh My!

    There are so many new (and recycled) trends going on every year, one might be confused on what to do. One year it's bralettes and chokers, the other year it's daisy dukes, who knows what's going to happen this year? But don't worry, we have paired some outfit choices with our sunglasses to give you an idea of what will be the trend this summer!

    Outfit 1: White pants paired with a bright colored tops are extremely popular this year. You can also go white on white but make sure to accessorize with something flashy such as sunglasses with color mirrored lenses so you don't look too washed out!

    Outfit 2: Off the shoulder tops have been trending everywhere this year. Now that it is summer, show off those sun kissed shoulders with a pretty off the shoulder top! Stripes are super popular this summer so make sure to get a top with THIN vertical stripes! We aren't trying to look like Beetlejuice this year. If you're wearing a colorful outfit, pair with something more neutral like a solid toned pair of sunglasses.

    Outfit 3: The outfit for this post, comes from our lovely photographer, Jessica Hunter at Chic & Disheveled! Florals have always been around, they make an appearance almost every year during spring and summer. Whether it's in the form of floral tops, floral kimonos, floral dresses... it's everywhere. Florals are making a comeback on sundresses this year but ever since male rompers arrived on the scene a few weeks ago, lady rompers are coming back as well! If you're going to wear something dark this summer, accessorize with something light so you get those nice contrasting colors! Also, if you're wearing something floral, your hats/scarves/jackets/sunglasses should be a solid tone so you don't have too many contrasting patterns.

    Last outfit, I promise. Whatever outfit choice you're going to wear this summer, always remember, be confident in yourself! It doesn't matter what you wear, how many different kinds of make up you pile on your face, or what kind of sunglasses you have. The only thing that matters is self confidence. Self confidence is the best outfit, so rock it, and own it.

     

    Have fun!
