Visual Diary: Baja California Eats

I am pretty sure my parents live closer to Mexico than LA, so it seemed reasonable that after 13 years of living in San Diego, they decided to go on a weekend trip to Baja California. This was my parent’s second time driving there and my first time joining them. We left San Diego around noon, drove through Tijuana, then…

Looking Forward to the Weekend

Since you’ve got time to kill before Sunday night: put the Game of Thrones characters on this chart of ugly, beautiful, bad, and good. Would President Trump let you move to America? Find out here.  Here’s how your phone can help your mental health. Unless you’re a teen, in which case it might be doing more harm than good. Secret Secret Baby,…

Friday I’m in Love

We’re all busy, but the weekend (or le week-end as the French say) is an opportunity to wind down, catch up on your favorite podcasts, and maybe go on a picnic or two. But you don’t have to do it alone—we’re here to help guide you in the right direction!   Our inspiration this week comes to us in the usual…

I Was Busy Thinking ‘Bout Boys

I’m obsessed with the music video for Charli XCX’s new single “Boys.” A lot has already been written about how it “flips the male gaze on its head,” and you can find plenty of unofficial rankings of the 60 boys who appear in the video, and there’s even a “Boys” Snapchat filter, but I’d recommend you’d start by seeing the magic…

Retreat Recap + Playlist

This past weekend, four of us hopped into the car and bypassed the Gilroy Garlic Festival (though not its traffic-*sigh*) in favor of a weekend in Santa Barbara. It was three days of lounging on comfy white duvets, munching on homemade bread topped with TJ’s everything bagel spice, slurping up espressos, boogie boarding, snapping photos (in my case, endless amounts),…

Evolution of Instagram

Over the past few weeks, I’ve found myself using Instagram in a new way. I always thought of it as a place to just see what my friends were up to, so I don’t really follow anyone outside of who I know already in-person. Last year, I tried to follow more influential people on Instagram (wait, there’s a word for that—influencer),…

Simple Flourless Chocolate Cake

I’ve made this Bon Appetit flourless chocolate recipe four times in the past three weeks. It’s light and fluffy (thanks to the whipped egg whites), but also decadent. The original recipe includes a glaze, which I’ve never made although I’m sure it would be delicious as well. My favorite part of this cake is that is saves INSANELY WELL and…

Welcome to the Weekend!

Welcome to the best 48-54 hours of the week. It’s the weekend! To help make sure your weekend is filled with distractions, here is a list of links to peruse:     Hopefully we aren’t the only ones obsessed with GOT! Anyone else curious about what it would be like if GOT characters went to UC Berkeley?   We are…

New Trend Alert: Butt Pads

In case you haven’t heard (you probably have), I’m currently studying for the MCAT. For those of you who don’t know, preparing for this milestone exam is more of a way of life than anything else. Think of finals week, and then think specifically of those few occasions where you were actually productively studying for a solid two hours. Now…
