Leather and Lace
When the bodysuit came out this season I loved how it looked but wasn’t so sure I could pull it off. It’s surprisingly comfortable and easy to wear! I love pairing it with a dark skirt for fall. I find the relaxed fit of a skirt helps to balance out the tightness of the bodysuit, especially for those of us who have a bit of a softer midsection. Christina’s outfit is from BCBG, and mine is from Rococo. Throw on some cute heels, and you’re ready for a night out.
I love celebrating fall events with my children. Halloween is one of my favorite holidays because my kids get so excited about it! Here’s a short tutorial on how to make this adorable little edible (and healthy) Frankenstein that I made for my oldest son. He was so excited when he saw it!
1. Gather your ingredients: You will need 3 kiwi fruit, some purple grapes, cucumber skin, banana, blueberries, and julienne carrots.
*You end up using only small amounts of some of the above fruits and veggies-I ended up bringing the rest to work to munch on the next day.
2. Peel the kiwi and slice it so that mainly the green areas are visible. Cut your grapes in half length wise, and assemble like below.
3. Place the banana and blueberries on the kiwi to make the eyes. Assemble the carrots like mine below for Frankenstein’s “scar”. Use the peels of the cucumber and the kiwi for the mouth and side details as shown below.
4. Here’s my favorite part: Accessorize! You can find some cute and inexpensive Halloween décor at places like Target or even the grocery store. I used these adorable rings and finger puppets to jazz things up a bit. My kids loved this! Try this at home, and let me know how it goes!
Hi everyone! Thank you for visiting our blog. Our names are Christina and Jennifer. We are twins, physicians, coworkers, best friends, and each other’s biggest supporters. We created this site as a visual inspiration and organization tool so that we can document our favorite things: fashion, family, food, fitness, and fun.
We come from a very culturally diverse background thanks in part to our Korean father and Dutch mother. Our parents have been a huge influence in our lives and have always taught us the importance of a strong family unit. Growing up, we, along with our two older brothers (also doctors!) have had amazing opportunities to travel to various parts of the world. We have learned to embrace adventure and excitement but have also come to realize that there’s no place like home.
As working moms, we lead pretty crazy, busy lives. Between the two of us, we have 2 husbands, 5 kids, 2 step children, and 2 dogs. Here, you will witness our attempts at staying fabulous while keeping it real. We’ll document our efforts to find a balance in life – if one really ever exists! Thank you for joining us in our journey. Hold on tight; it’s bound to be a wild ride.
