Lets Tone It Up This Thursday


Welcome to the mermaid life ladies.

Once you read this post you’ll be hooked. And if that doesn’t do it surf their site yourself. toneitup.com !

Who are we talking about? Well if you haven’t heard of them yet, they’re the power bestie duo Karena and Katrina. You may have seen these beach babes on their show “TonedUp” on Bravo or maybe you’ve heard of them for their awesome brand Tone It Up. These ladies do it all; workout videos, lifestyle advice and healthy recipes.

We know what you’re thinking. Why would you want these perfect, mermaid like, beach babes telling you how to work out. Shush! Dont make a judgement just yet–it’s not like that at all! We’re totally obsessed with them and everything they stand for.

Karena and Katrina are best friends, (just like us) who have a passion for living life healthy and happy. Nutrition and fitness have changed their lives and now they’re inspiring women all over the country to do the same. And it’s working! Tone It Up isn’t just working out, it’s a lifestyle and community they have created. Women can share their stories and inspire each other everyday through all of Tone It Up’s social media platforms. And the best part is they’re about being healthy, so none of that dieting where you can barely eat or something and just can’t even take it. Because we like to eat, and do things the right way.

Their awesome app gives you a weekly schedule of workouts and allows you to surf their products, lifestyle posts and more. Oh and of course their Beach Babe Workout DVD. Trust us, listen to these girls they’re completely down to Earth and really passionate about what they do. Besides that, they wear the coolest bathing suits by Maaji Swimwear.

Just look at them: total mermaids. And we love mermaids, well we are mermaids.

Summer is coming, and we’re thinking these besties have it right. Beach life is where we wanna be. Let us know what you think!

Start dreaming of the beach mermaids, and tone it up for that happy and healthy life!

Happy Earth Day!


We totally approve of Earth Day!

We’re all about peace, love, and earth. I guess you could say we completely support hippie beliefs–as long as you bathe and embrace all that good hygiene stuff. In celebration of Earth Day, we thought we’d share a pic of one of our favorite places ever, Lake George!


Today we not only commemorate a movement, but acknowledge that the fate of our beautiful planet earth rests in our hands. On a much smaller scale (other than the fact that we are encouraging global warming by not preserving, polluting and not recycling), think of it like this: Who wants to go to the beach, catch some rays and uhm…swim in some garbage? Not me. That’s for sure. Do us a favor; as you drive today, take a moment to look out your window and notice the garbage on the side of the road. No one wants to see that. We should aspire to see green grass, trees and blooming flowers–not your McDonalds bag from last year!

It’s time to do your part. By simply changing your habits, you–yes YOU–could greatly impact the world. Who knows, showing Mother Nature a little extra love could cause a chain reaction!

For our die-hard tree-huggers out there, check out all the ways to get involved by visiting http://www.earthday.org.

Peace our fellow flower-children, and Happy Earth Day!

#DrakeforKen & #DrakeforUs


We may be a little late on this post, but we HAD to share our excitement for our number one man.

If you haven’t heard already, World’s sweetest rapper Drake visited a fifteen-year-old girl in Houston who’s classmates wanted to make all her dreams come true. Kennedy Brown had been diagnosed with a brain tumor and had to leave school, so her classmates decided to create “High School in a day” where they crowned her prom queen and she received her high school diploma. What more could they want for their friend, well Drake of course!

The media was all over the story and the kids were smart enough to take advantage of that. They asked the media, which then asked everyone who watched the news story to tweet at rapper Drake and hashtag “DrakeforKen” in hopes to grab his attention. And it totally worked! Drake made a personal phone call to Ken’s father and told the family that he was making a special trip to Houston.

And there’s pictures to prove it! Drake instagramed all day with the family and Ken. Not to mention they’re the sweetest, most precious pictures you’ll ever see!

Now all of this is not only making a little girl’s dream come true but also spreading great publicity for drake. He continued to use #DrakeforKen on all of his instas. We like to believe the star enjoyed his visit just as much as Ken did. (I mean seriously those pictures can’t lie-look at those smiles)

Whatever way anyone wants to see it, we’re in full support of you Drizzy ❤

Man Crush Monday: Jesse McCartney

Attention all Jesse McCartney fans! The dreamy pop singer is making his comeback in a major way and we could not be more excited! Aside from being ridiculously good looking and having a well-defined jaw line, he is sensitive and a romantic, which basically makes him the perfect man. If you look at his website, jessemac.com, I promise you’ll immediately start drooling. It features a quote by Jesse which reads:

“We’re all on this planet for one reason,
To find somebody to share your life with, that sees you for what you’re worth.
That’s what colors your world, everything else is black and white.”

AS IF WE DIDN’T GUSH OVER HIM ALREADY! Every girl wants to find that one guy who would put their love first, and I’m telling you ladies, Jesse McCartney is a hidden gem!

His new album, titled “In Technicolor Pt. 1”, is now available on iTunes. We suggest listening to “Back Together”, which we’ve been jamming out to for weeks now. We should point out that as the title suggests, it’s not the ideal song for someone going through a breakup and is thinking about drunk texting an ex. But then again, you could do what we do and just imagine that Jesse is singing to you and your search for the dream guy will be over!

We’ve loved him ever since “Beautiful Soul” and “Leavin”, but this new album just reassured us that he is definitely Twenties Approved and worthy of being our Man Crush Monday! He is proof that the good guys are still out there; don’t lose hope! Let us know your suggestions for the next Man Crush Monday in the comment section below!

Blonde Besties on a Mission!


Hofstra Seniors 201

Hey there! This is our first official blog post so we thought we’d introduce ourselves. We are Kerry and Dana from Long Island, New York and we have been best friends for 8 years. We met when we were freshmen in high school and have been inseparable ever since. We went off to two different colleges, Marist and Hofstra, but we remained closer than ever. Coincidentally, we both decided to major in public relations. Hence the idea for this blog.

Although we are best friends we are not the same person, there are definitely some differences in our style, but we totally rock it. The theme of this blog is to explore our feelings on what’s “in” right now or to share our latest obsessions. We’re passionate about a number of things and couldn’t imagine focusing on just one. From music to hair to fashion, you’ll see it all on this blog. It’s an exciting time in our lives right now as we finish our senior year of college and have to start thinking about the real world—but not just yet. We have always dreamed of working together, so here it goes!

We are so excited about starting this blog and we hope you enjoy it!

Stay tuned to explore with us as our blog develops and our obsessions change and grow with us.

xoxo K & D
