NEW YORK FASHION WEEK AT HOTEL INDIGO LOWER EAST SIDE

February 15, 2017

Hotel Indigo, Lower East Side

At the risk of sounding like two mid-20-something princesses, life is only as good as the bed you sleep on, and the bed at Hotel Indigo Lower East Side is always our favorite.

Less than two weeks ago, we were out in New York for Men’s Fashion Week — probably our most productive and ‘healthy’ fashion week yet. ‘Healthy,’ meaning, we didn’t consume street vendor hot dogs every day for breakfast and lunch, as we’ve done in the past. Our cardiovascular systems thank us.

Hot dogs aside… Continue Reading

THE POSITIVE HEALTH BENEFITS OF WEARING TRACK PANTS

February 7, 2017

Adidas track pants

We’re not sure there are any, but we do feel healthy AND we’re wearing track pants, so that’s gotta be something.

Consider this: by wearing velour track pants with an elastic waistband, one not only can do the splits in comfort, but can also eat two large Ultimeat pizzas comfortably, while simultaneously caressing the velvet texture of the pants softly, inducing what we’d only describe as a euphoric sense of happiness. Splits, pizza, soft touches. With such happiness, we’d only assume it can have a positive effect on your health.*

*we do not claim liability for the health effects of wearing track pants.

Irregardless.

We found these velour Adidas track pants last week (similar options from Urban Outfitters), fell in love, and will probably wear them for five days straight — tradesies. (Brock lucked out in wearing them first).

 

Paired with white Hanes socks, white slides (some cool options here from Asos), a Space Jam long-sleeve tee, and a Tommy Hilfiger Denim jacket. We’ll go ahead and say, it’s a funky fresh look. FUNKY. FRESH.

Not to be left out (HEAVEN forbid), Chris is wearing an Abercrombie turtleneck sweater, paired with green Adidas track pants, white Hanes socks, and white Greats ‘Wooster’ slip-on sneakers.

 

Where the dapper gents of Instagram wear suits day in and day out, we raise them track paints and sweaters, and say, HA! WHO’S THE COMFY ONE NOW?!

OUR YUMMERTIME PERFECT PARTY COCKTAIL

January 30, 2017

How to make a Moscow Mule

Made by Yummertime, in partnership with Smirnoff.

Otherwise subtitled: WE LOVE Moscow Mules.

We have a dream of hosting a party bigger than Coachella (where pizza will be served to everyone for FREE, of course), but until then, we’ve been working on our ‘entertainment’ skills, getting our friends together for mini-Yummertime parties — mini, only in the way that we’re not millionaires yet and can’t give our guests party bags worth thousands of dollars.

ONE DAY.

Still, we threw a party last week for around fifteen of our closest friends in San Francisco to celebrate the fact that we just moved into a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment and NEVER HAVE TO FIGHT OVER who gets to use the bathroom first ever again! We are living.

What we served: Smirnoff Moscow Mules. Continue Reading

NEW YORK FASHION WEEK PACKING PARTY

January 27, 2017

bomber jacket and camp collar Valentino shirt from MR PORTER for New York Fashion Week Mens

Packed by Yummertime, in support of MR PORTER as our NYFW:M shopping destination. We love you, MR PORTER. 

Also subtitled: We’d Rather Be Packing Speedos.

New York, HERE WE COME.

Per the usual, we’ll probably stay out too late, wake up too early, and eat our weight in bagels (pro tip: our faves are from Baz Bagel, YES). And since it’s important for us to tell the whole world what we’re up to, here’s what we’re up to:

We’re headed to New York Fashion Week: Men’s 🙂

(We can already hear the ‘ooooohhhhs’ and ‘awwwwwwws’ from our moms back home, who are the most excited for us, LOL)

Nevertheless, it’s time to commence the constant side-eyes from everyone in the front row, second row, third row, as we sit there, not knowing at all what we’re doing. It’s our third time to New York Fashion Week and we’re still so new to the ‘scene.’ We’ll be the ones with slices of pizza in-hand because we can’t stand the thought of being hungry during a ‘show.’

But, this is all besides the main point of this post. Without further ado:

Here’s what we packed, our favorite selects from MR PORTER right now:

Chris’ Selects:

 

Brock’s selects:

 

Top choices include: this Gucci ‘Woodstock’ sweater and this Valentino camp collar shirt, a.k.a. our ways of saying screaming, HEY, LOOK AT US, WE HAVE PERSONALITY.

Other faves include: these VISVIM green-stripe soled shoes, this Solid Homme bomber jacket, these Rag & Bone jeans, these Acne pebbled white sneakers, and these Bottega Veneta chelsea boots.

And if we had the chance to shop more before our trip, here’s what would have been in our shopping cart:

 

Cross your fingers and hope that we survive the week!

PLACES PUERTO RICO SAN JUAN

OUR SAN JUAN, PUERTO RICO CITY GUIDE feat. MARRIOTT

January 26, 2017

Chris and Brock of Yummertime in Puerto Rico

Life goals (now) include: owning a house in Puerto Rico (preferably PINK), in addition to winning the lottery and swimming in a pool full of pizza, among other things, of course.

Out of everywhere we’ve been in the past year alone — Croatia, France, Miami, New York, Dallas, Palm Springs — Puerto Rico takes the cake. And it’s a huge cake. A HUGE funfetti cake. Our favorite!

We wore speedos. We got sun burned. We drank mojitos and piña coladas and ate mofongo (fried plantains, mashed up) EVERY SINGLE DAY. And that’s barely scratching the surface.

So, here’s the 411: San Juan Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino flew us out to Puerto Rico for four (4) days, without prompt or itinerary, urging us to simply experience San Juan. And experience San Juan, we did. Continue Reading

SUNNIES SIDE UP — 6 SUNGLASSES WE LOVE

January 24, 2017

Our Favorite Men's Sunglasses

Little do you know, we weren’t wearing any pants or underwear when we took these photos. But, actually, now you know… Because we told you. So, UGH, never mind.

NEVER MIND. Let’s talk sunglasses.

On the daily, we receive dozens of questions asking what sunglasses we’re wearing (from Instagram posts to Stories) — we also get asked if we’re brothers, to which we reply by making out with each other like good ol’ bros, but that’s another story. Instead of answering each question, individually, we decided to blog about our sunglasses to let everyone know 🙂

We figured we needed to let THE WHOLE WORLD KNOW. Such vital information.

These are the six sunglasses we’ve been wearing the most. Like we said, VITAL information. And on that note, they all have gold or yellow frames. Which means, we suppose, we’re making the case for gold and yellow framed sunglasses.

‘we’re making the case for gold and yellow framed sunglasses.’

Top faves include this Gucci pair, this pair from Tom Ford, and this pair from Ray-Ban. There’s also this pair from Dick Moby, this Ray-Ban pair, and this pair from Illesteva.

More of our faves also include:

 

We need more sunglasses now.
