A quick trip to Oregon


This past weekend I made my way up to Eugene, Oregon to visit my brother at college. He just started his Freshmen year at The University of Oregon, so my Mom, Grandma, and I decided to go up for Family Weekend.

We started the weekend with a quick trip to Starbucks for Pumpkin Spice Lattes of course, and then hit the road.

I have never been to Oregon before and the drive was gorgeous. So many trees, tons of farmland, and cute quaint towns.

We arrived in Eugene Friday night and headed downtown to grab a bite to eat. We ended up at The Davis, which is a chic restaurant with an extensive menu and great drinks. Seriously, everything on the menu looked amazing.



We walked down the street to Voodoo Doughnuts. This was one of my "must dos" while I was up there. It started in Portland and then expanded to a second location in Eugene. Its been made famous by appearing on various shows such as; No Reservations, Bizarre Foods, and Portlandia. I got the classic maple bacon bar which was just as good as it sounds


The gorgeous campus

My brother gave us a quick tour of campus on Saturday which was beautiful. It finally felt like fall. Colors changing on the trees, old brick buildings, and lots or families out walking their dogs!

The Willamette River that runs through Eugene

The rest of the weekend was spent at the University of Oregon football game, shopping (hello no sales tax!) and relaxing with the family!

I headed back to The Bay on Sunday night via Amtrack.  Traveling by train was so old-school and leading up to it I totally romanticized it. It wasn't terrible but it definitely wasn't glamorous. Reminds me of the Sex and the City episode where Carrie and Samantha take the "deluxe sleeper" train across the country! It was an experience, that's for sure!

Ashley's Obsessed: As If

Eww... as if!





Oh Cher Horowitz, how you inspired so many young girls to use that phrase. I remember being in elementary school and "playing" Clueless with my friends. Seriously for my 7th birthday I remember getting the new Spice Girls cassette tape (whoa!) and staying up late to watch Clueless with my mom - late probably being 9pm!


Well now that I have grown up I still truly appreciate the movie, the fashion, the friendships, and the jargon. When I saw this "As If" print on Etsy I knew I had to order it! It's such a cute print, and is a chic nod to a fabulous catch phrase!

One of my fave parts from the movie!

Well, red velvet anything really! The red is perfect for the bloody theme of the show! This link also has some great ideas for a viewing party in general!

Ginger "Dead" Cookies 

How 'cute' are these?! Little ass-kicking zombie cookies!

Cake Pops 


If you have the time/talent/energy these would be amazing!

If you are having friends over, some good themed food can also include "anything from a can" or BBQ!

Make sure to get all caught up before the new season this Sunday night on AMC!

You got my attention with pineapple, you had me with mojito! Check out this delish recipe for Pineapple Mojitos here!

As we've gotten a bit older and our wallets have grown some, We've tried to phase out of F21 and into more grown up, quality pieces, but damnit they just came out with a gorgeous collection of coats! We can't stay away. Kira is loving the checkered moto jacket in particular!

We have been thinking of dyeing Kira's hair, yes we, because how could she make that decision alone! Here is a great "broke girls guide" to keeping your color and wallet in check!

Casual is always comfy, but you can't always get away with it. However with a few twists and additions a casual outfit can be easily dressed up! Don't believe us? Check out WhoWhatWear's great slideshow

And yay Fall TV is back! We both love Grey's Anatomy and we're loving the song that closed out the first episode this season. Take a listen below!
