On a jet plane

We are off to enjoy some sunshine and relaxation. Here are a few things that made it into our suitcases:

We have some fun projects coming up… we’ll share more when we are back! Enjoy your week, and start thinking about those Halloween costumes :)

Twin Tested: Hair Wars

Today we put two award winning hair stylists through a tough test… Two hairstyles in under 20 minutes.
We had tons of fun and loved the finished product!
We highly recommend taking a trip up to beautiful Layton for Salon Tantrum.
It is hands down one of our favorite salons in Utah.
Happy weekend!


Now that Fall is in the air we have been searching for the perfect skirt 
to kick off the season… 
and I think we may have found it.

Lauren Conrad’s blush pleated skirt has it all: girly details, structure, and best of all – it would look great with some patterned tights. 
You can go buy one at all Kohl’s (it’s on sale right now!) or online. 
Happy Shopping

Life is more fun when you dress like a princess

 We are pretty sure that is Taylor Swift’s life motto. After going to her concert last night, we are obssessed with everything sparkly, poofy and sequined. We both said we have never seen a photo of Taylor where we thought she looked trashy… which is pretty impressive since there are bajillions of photos of her. Here are three of our favorite T-Swift looks:

Happy First Day of Fall!

Our challenge: to find 2 outfits under $40 dollars.
We loved doing this with spring clothes, but decided it would be more of a challenge doing it in fall.
We had a great time finding our outfits and found some screaming deals.
Brittany’s outfit
Dress: Old Navy $11
Tights: TJ Maxx $3
Boots: $24
Scarf: Gifted (but we found 3 other options for under $5)
Brooke’s outfit:
Shirt and skirt: Ross $14
Tights: TJ Maxx $3
Boots: $23
Run to TJ Maxx! I have been searching for polka dot tights for months and found them there. 2 pack of tights for $6. Can’t beat it.

Favorite Emmy Fashion

Hello Ball Gowns!
We loved how celebrities classed it up and went glam to this year’s Emmy Awards. Here are a couple of our favorite looks…
 Kerri Washington looked stunning in red! Red proved to be the most popular color of the night.
 Dianna Agron in brilliant blue… another popular color on the red carpet.
 Naya Rivera in basic black. Both us would wear this dress any day of the week!
Basically, we loved all of the Glee girl’s dresses. Especially Lea Michele’s gorgeous red dress. Red was definitely the standout color. So elegant!
We don’t know about you, but the best part of any awards show is always the red carpet fashion!

Twin Tested

Keeping Your Summer Glow
We are fake tan junkies. We’ve tried everything to get the perfect faux glow. From lotions to towels, we have done it all. For Twin Tested, Brooke got a mystic spray tan, while I tried tan in a can from Bath & Body Works.
Some Fake Tanning Tips:
  • Exfoliate first
  • Put lotion on your feet, hands, knees and elbows first
  • Wash your hands after
  • For streaks or orange palms, use lemon juice to wipe it off.
Good luck with your faux glow!

The Glow

Everybody wants to keep their summer tan going, but with school and crazy schedules no one has time to bake for hours under the sun. Britt and I have decided to test out the best ways to fake it, we’ll bring you the results Wednesday on 2 News This Morning. 
But first, let’s take a peek at some not so great fake bakes over the years.
First aggressor: Lindsey Lohan
 In a close second place: George Hamilton

 Third, who can forget the misadventure of Ross getting a botched spray tan on “Friends”. 

The segment will air at 7:45 Wednesday morning on KUTV Channel 2.
See you then!

My dirty secret came out on the show… I love wearing glasses, but have perfect vision so I buy them with clear lenses. Instead of paying a lot for glasses I don’t need, I go to Claire’s (the store you loved when you were 12). They have a wide selection of glasses all for under $10.

Here is today’s segment:
