Happy Galentine’s Day! Today we are celebrating Galentine’s with our lovely friend Dianne from Miami Food Pug. As huge Parks & Recreation fans, we decided to hang out and celebrate our friendship. If you haven’t seen the TV show Parks and Recreation (OMG you totally should!), there’s a crazy awesome character called Leslie Knope played by hilarious Amy Poehler. She celebrates Galentine’s, the best holiday of the year, every February 13th with her gal pals.
The holiday usually involves waffles because Leslie Knope loves waffles. So when Dianne presented her Galentine’s gift, it couldn’t have been more appropriate – adorably packaged waffle mix. Check out the episode for all of our shenanigans and gift ideas for Galentine’s. Enjoy!
Yay! It’s Christmas Eve today and we are so excited to show off our Holiday outfits! We partnered up with Laura from The Fashion Diva & local photographer Saskya Cabral for a Winter Wonderland photoshoot and couldn’t wait to share it with you.
Laura and I decided to go for traditional red and green colors this year. So we put on our Christmas dresses and headed on out to the local Santa playland in Coral Gables. It’s a really cute park they build every year with Santa’s house where you can get your picture taken with Santa during specific hours. You can also find a train for kids to play on, an elf’s workshop house, and (my favorite) a sleigh pulled by an adorable little pony. It’s a great place for kids to play and to be fair, we also had a blast there too! Continue Reading
Today we bring you Izzie’s favorite handbags. They all happen to be Betsey Johnson bags. There’s something so whimsical and kitschy about these bags that I just love. I also love their chunkiness. My favorite accents are the bows and in the case of my phone purse I can live with it not having a bow because it has ROTARY PHONE instead! And it works too! Just plug in the auxilary cable to your cell and you can pick up phone calls with the bag’s phone handle. I’ve had these bag for a while already so they are not easy to find anymore. We’ve added links below to similar bags to the ones in our video. Enjoy!
This past weekend was the August South Florida Bloggers Meetup and we had a blast! All the bloggers that attend dress up super cute so I had to have a cute dress. I was lucky that Izzie gave me this adorable colorblock dress for my birthday this month. So I didn’t have to even think about the outfit. I knew exactly what I was wearing for the event. I always wear short dresses with tights so I can feel comfortable. Also, I’m not the best at behaving like a proper lady to prevent showing my undies throughout the day. So I tend to wear leggings or tights with my outfits. I don’t have to worry too much about how I sit or pick up something that fell on the floor. Yes, cuteness is important but comfort first!

Our local theater is showing a week of Hayao Miyazaki films and we decided to go see My Neighbor Totoro. For this event I was in a sailor/french mood kind of outfit. I wore a black and white stripey shirt from Old Navy, short sleeve blazer from The Limited and bright white Keen sneakers. Added some red accents with my cameo necklace and Betsey Johnson bow purse.
I attended a Blogger Meetup event in Miami Beach this past Saturday. There were enough decadent sweets and mimosas to leave your head spinning. I discovered that I love Contenti Cupcake’s chocolate cream pie with bacon; and I met some fellow comic and paranormal book loving geeks. I can’t wait to collaborate with them and have them as guests on The Izzie & Coco Book Review Show. Many new things are in the works so keep checking in!

I wanted to be comfortable at the event, as usual, so I decided to wear my go to melissa pop bow flats. This exact style is out of stock but similar models are always available. I linked to three different options you can choose from in the Shop The Post; but my favorite one is the Melissa Ultragirl with a black bow. I bought my staple midi skirt at Modcloth and paired it with a blush polka dot top. As always, the phone bag by Betsey Johnson was a huge hit. I received so many compliments about the purse! I was extra flattered because many of the bloggers were fashion bloggers. The phone bag is currently sold out in black but they just released the same in bag in cream and I am seriously considering buying too.
This year’s Dapper Animals Valentine’s Day Photoshoot has the theme: Love is in the Air. The guys opted for muted outfits with pops of color and the girls peppered their outfits with different shades of red, pink & coral.

Peter has a love/hate relationship with this lovely holiday. The cynic in him wants to rant about corporations pushing our emotional buttons to spend money on cards and jewelry. Then again, he melts when he receives a handmade note that reads: “You are the sweetest. Will you be my valentine?” signed with a doodle of donuts & ice cream bars. Hence, Peter decided to go on a fancy Valentine’s date and picked the appropriate outfit with his slim fit, charcoal suit and skinny, silk, blood red tie.Keep reading >>>
One of my favorite colors is coral. So when I saw this Cobble Hill Satchel by Kate Spade New York, I had to have it. Living in South Florida allows me to wear bright colors all year round. So this bag just became my favorite bag. It’s chubby, coral and has gorgeous Kate Spade details. I also love that it has a striped interior and enough room to carry all I want. Keep reading >>>
