Stephanie wearing a shimmery holographic mask. Hello strangers! It's us, the Bubbly in a Teacup twins, Stephanie and Nicole. We took a hiatus from blogging about life's little luxuries because during a global pandemic, sometimes your priorities shift.

A very merry unbirthday!
Maybe it's because our high school senior photos were less than stellar (hint: don't choose a photographer just because they offer a twin discount), or maybe it's because we wanted to have an excuse to get dressed up and have a fancy tea party. Whatever the reason is, it doesn't matter. We do recommend, … Continue reading A very merry unbirthday!
End of Year Lists: Books Read
It's been a busy summer, fall, and winter! As we gear into a season of hibernation (hello, hygge life), it's fun to look back over the last year and compartmentalize every detail into an end-of-year list. Maybe not every detail.

(Everything always comes back to the … Continue reading Birth of Venus
Wine to Go Go
One summer evening, I joined a friend for an outdoor Shakespeare on the Park. It was a beautiful night, they were performing A Midsummer Night's Dream, and the lawn was packed. My friend had already set up chairs and blankets and as I arrived, she handed me an insulated tumbler. Ah, thanks, I'm so thirsty! … Continue reading Wine to Go Go
A few years ago, I decided I wanted to start yoga. So I bought an old paperback from the 1970s, called Richard Hittlemans Yoga: 28 Day Exercise Plan. It...is definitely from a bygone era. As in, entire chapters devoted to the housewife and her daily chores. But it was a great self-paced introduction, and I … Continue reading Namaste, Mfers
