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:

A Little Preview

Trying to finish everything up for this week’s Steal or Splurge.

Here’s a hint to what the theme is… how can you not love Steve Urkel?

You can watch Friday at 1pm.


True confession time: Last night Brooke and I seriously watched “Crazy About Pippa Middleton” on E!… and we loved every second of it.
Just like everyone else in the world, we immediately became obsessed with Ms. P when she showed up at the Royal Wedding.
Don’t worry both of us agree Kate looked better, but Pippa looked stunning!
Since then, she has been in countless magazines.
We think it’s because she has one characteristic we all want… CLASS.
Pippa looks classy ALL the time, even when she is running triathalons! So, here are our 3 favorite Pippa looks…

Twins Interviewing Twins

We had such a great time chatting with Tia and Tamera. They were both very sweet. We chatted about the crazy changes both of them have recently gone through. Tia has a 5 week old baby and Tamera just got married. Favorite part of the interview was definitely when Tamera yelled “Twins rule!” at the end. Did you guys have any idea they were 33?!? I totally thought they were like 28… Anyway, you can watch the full interview below.


(How awesome are their hairstyles and eye rhinestones… takes me back to Junior High.)
So excited to interview these two today! Britt and I were huge fans of “Sister, Sister” in the 90’s (who wasn’t). It seems like there was an abnormal amount of awesome twin shows back then: Sweet Valley High, So Little Time, etc. and we loved them all. Anyways, the Mowry twins are now all grown up and have their own reality show. We will be chatting with them about their new show, their style,(that has definitely evolved since the above picture) and what’s next for them.

Tune into Fresh Living @ 1pm on KUTV Channel 2 to catch the segment!

Currently Loving

Britt and I had a fun little conversation this week, when I asked her the question:

If you could have anyone’s wardrobe who’s would it be and why?
Drumroll please….. here are our top 3 picks:

#1 Kate Middleton
First off she is a princess and living every girl’s dream. Everything she wears is flawless, and sometimes she even wears it twice! We are huge Will & Kate fans!

#2 Elizabeth Hasselbeck

I realize this choice is a little random. I am not a huge “View” watcher, but every time I see Elizabeth’s outfits she looks so put together. She combines effortless chic + preppy perfectly. I would want to open her closet doors any day!
#3 Kelly Ripa

And yet another talk show host! I didn’t mean to choose two but I guess I am just impressed they can look great EVERY single day. Kelly has a great style that exudes feminity. But I don’t know which I want more – her arms or her clothes. (Also impressed she looks this good after 4 kids!) So there are our choices, now we want to hear about your dream pick!
