Coffee Shop Favorites

{Imagine via Yelp}
It's finally feeling like Fall in California and we're experiencing our first storm since March. As much as I love the clear, sunny California days, I miss the rainy days of cozying up with a good cup of coffee and a good book. This storm has inspired us to make a list of some of our favorite coffee places around the Bay! Let us know if you've visited any of these spots or tell us about your favorite coffee shop!

Whims: Music Festival Trends!

 { Image via }

Music festival season is upon us! Every year I always say "I'm going to Coachella next year!" and then it doesn't happen. It's okay, I don't really want to go anyways. Why would I want to spend a whole weekend dancing with my closest friends to some of the hottest music right now? That's so not cool. Anyways, just because I can't go doesn't mean you have go with the usual, basic festival outfits. Here are some new trends that will be a big (and unique) hit at this years' festivals.

Whims: Surprises in Colorado



Super Bowl 50 was held in Santa Clara (San Francisco for those who don't live in California and only experienced it on TV) and it was the perfect time to make my escape to snowy, beautiful Colorado. Did I feel FOMO for missing out on Super Bowl activities in my hometown? Yes. Did I regret going to Colorado during Super Bowl weekend for $98 roundtrip? NOPE. Best. Decision. Ever. The mega sale I was able to grab from JetBlue allowed me to make the best spur of the moment decision ever. I was only in Colorado for three and a half days but that was enough time to make me fall completely in love with all of Colorado, and I would go back in a heartbeat. Read on to see the highlights from my trip!

Whims: October Favorites

Oh, October, how you'll be missed! October is the month before all the holiday chaos begins, and yet it seemed like it was barely there. Last month was a very eventful month for us (trip to Boston, weddings,  Halloween, etc..) and we were able to experience a lot of things for the first time! Check out the list to see our favorites for the last month!

Let's party!: Halloween dinner

Last year, we hosted a creepy, gag-worthy Halloween dinner party that definitely spooked and impressed our guests. It's not everyday that witches' brew and zombie meatloaf heads are served. The best part of this dinner party is that all the props you see in the photo were purchased at the local dollar store! Read on to see what recipes we used to create this creepy dinner set up!
