November Outtakes

above | (din) code: "gratitude" and (dré) eShakti

Ciao, November! At this moment, there are two things running through our minds:

For din, "Cus the players gonna play, play, play, play, play and the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate....shake it off! Shake it off!"  This weekend of giving thanks was spent with an adorable little girl named Ava. If there was ever a pout on the 3 yr old's face, we shook it off with Taylor Swift's new album. After all, there's no pouting during #weekendwithauntiedindin; that's Wrinkle 101! (Today marked 8 days til din's 30th, so that's wisdom talking.)

Now, for dré, packing (yup, another move!) and tomorrow's meeting for an upcoming collaboration (more details to come!) occupy the mind. Thank goodness the weather from the Pass (snow..what?!) stayed put. Let's keep the cold to Cabin 28 as much as possible, shall we? Unless of course you used "codedredin10" to get yourself fabulous new outerwear. In that case, scooting from new home to fashion industry meetings looking chic is encouraged!

Men, looking for some encouragement as well? Don't look further than din's post on blogger sensation IAMGALLA (then visit past posts for inspiration here and here). We all need a little inspo For The Holidays, don't we? Speaking of inspo, did you know that "the buzz" is run by a stat counter to highlight the highest three posts? Did your favorite make "the buzz" this month?

Hi my lovelies! I hope everyone had a fab Thanksgiving! I know I did, and as my husband and I enjoy doing on our weekends, we ate to the point of "stupor status". You know the feeling...the moment right after you've finished stuffing yourself with comfort food, and it's all you can do to get to the nearest couch and cozy up in a big blanket and fall asleep...yeah, that. **Not to mention that I was awake until 4:30AM the night before, baking cake, and cheesecake, and pie, oh my!**

Now jumping to my outfit. I can't get enough of of these pants! And you can imagine my excitement when I realized the style of this pant is called the "Drea"! They really were made for me. Do you like them?

[ Product Review: ] Kinoki Detox Foot Pads + Groupon

The timing of this post just might be perfect. If you indulged this Thanksgiving Holiday, you may consider doing a detox! The Kinoki Cleansing Detox Foot Pads may be just what you're looking for if you want an easy start. Here's my review of this product plus a Groupon so you can try it for yourself!

Product Arrival: A+ The package arrived in less than 10 days. I found this pretty fast for a Groupon product order. The packaging (box and foot pads) are below. The pads have a faint scent reminiscent of Vick's vapor rub.

Day One Results: Hmm, interesting. I wasn't quite sure what to expect. The pads (left foot, right foot) had some residue, though I'm not really sure what exact toxins were being pulled. Whether those are the toxins, or the toxins changed the color of the salt like substance in the pads, this was the result.

Day Two Results: More toxins, more beautiful? After day two I reread the box. This product is supposed to relax muscles, relieve tension, and reduce internal moisture. I couldn't physically tell that I had a more restful sleep, and decided I would see how I would feel on day three to confirm. I did notice that the pads were more damp looking, so maybe that's the "internal moisture" Kinoki was referring to. (The blue is from my thermal socks. You can get similar here.)

Day Three Results: Rough night? More toxins. Well, if the darkened pads are any indication, the product is working. However, I didn't feel a difference in my body.

Day Four Results: Still working, I think. Same results as previous two days.

Day Five Results: That's a wrap! The final day was similar to the previous few days, although it seemed as if a few less toxins were pulled. I think it was an easy five days as the pads were not distracting while I slept.

Overall Rating: Not ecstatic, but not completely ruling it out. I think this needs at least 10 days of use to make a solid claim as to whether or not this product is legit. If the darkened pads mean toxins were released, then that's a good thing! However, I'm not 100% confident that that's what happened. I didn't feel more restful or have more relaxed muscles. As far as the other claims-- shaping and beautifying the body-- let's not get carried away, Kinoki.

Want to give this detox product a try? Here's a coupon for a 10 day trial via Groupon. Give me a shout out on Facebook if you try it out!

code "gratitude"

We are so blessed. Right now I'm sitting in a warm apartment (one that's spacious and all my own), preparing to head over (in my car) to a friend's for a lively Thanksgiving dinner. I say "we" because many of you are in similar situations. Whatever your walk in life, whatever your current situation, just know that you are a part of my blessing today.

Your continued support of two girls' creative outlet is heartwarming. It is my hope, and surely dré's as well, that you continue to find inspiration here. Whether it's fall trends like those shown above, beauty tips, or fun finds we are gushing over, we love the fashion world and thank you for your readership!

with hugs and gratitude,

Positive Mindset

As much as I'm not a fan of the cold, I must admit that the fashion for these icy climates is fab! I think my two favorite things to wear in these times are boots and furs. After all, I'm all about trying to be positive these days, so why not celebrate these seasonal beauties?! What are your cold weather must haves?

Cabin 28

This weekend I'm in Lancaster, PA for a spiritual retreat. The area reminds me of a Hallmark/Lifetime Christmas movie. (No jingle bells or holiday wreaths, just the setting awaiting a Christmas miracle.) Not gonna lie, I kinda like this fact.

Today's look is probably a little too polished for ziplining in the wilderness, but that's how we do (;

eShakti - My Custom Item & Coupon Code

In September, eShakti reached out to us for a collaboration. I was ecstatic to have the opportunity to be able to sample and review a line of clothing.

My initial feeling of the clothing on the site was "boring". My personal style definitely has more edge and excitement than the majority of the items there were to choose from. However after a bit of perusing, I was able to find a few things that caught my eye. I finally decided this houndstooth coat was what I needed. I have nothing like it, so I knew it would be something fun to add to my wardrobe.

One thing that I love about their site is that each item is made to custom order. So no matter your size, or how short or tall you are, they will make the garment to fit you. And I must say, I was pleasantly surprised by how nice the quality felt.

I sadly haven't been able to wear my coat too much since I've received it, but with the little I have worn it, I've gotten compliments. I'm extremely happy with this piece and would love to work with eShakti again!
