Union Point Food Truck Fest!
Last year we were lucky enough to attend the Union Point Food Truck Rodeo a couple times (check out pics here and here). We are SO bummed that we cannot attend this year because it was honestly one of the best events of the year last summer. Imagine 20+ food trucks carrying all different kinds of your favorite foods, live music and a chill environment? If we were back East we would NO DOUBT be there! Union Point hosts their Food Truck Rodeos 4 times this summer- unfortunately the first 2 were rescheduled due to rain so head to their Facebook page for dates! Grab some pals and bring your blankets/chairs and your Instagram will thank you!
Rolled Ice Cream Tacos
Speaking of food trends another favorite up and comer is the rolled ice cream tacos. These bad boys are only available in SoCal right now at the _____ in San Diego. Does anyone else crave ice cream after every meal in the warm months? 🙋🏼
I don’t know about you guys but I tend to drink more wine in the summer months. Nothing like a cold glass of Kim Crawford savvy b or a Mumm sparkling Pinot noir. Apparently orange wine has been around for a few years but is just now becoming trendy in the food and restaurant scene. For those who are wondering- orange wine is named for it’s color, and it contains no fruit. It is also made the same way that red wine is made but served chilled. Keep an eye out for orange wines at your favorite restaurants! Could orange wine be the next rosé??
New Instagram Sponsored Posts
There are SO many changes happening with Instagram, most we are not happy about but this one we are kinda digging. The latest Instagram update is intended to push influencers to be more transparent in their #sponsored posts. Apparently, earlier this year the FTC mailed letters to influencers with a warning about failure to disclose sponsored posts (we didn’t get one, in case any one was wondering). This is a huge move for Instagram and it is totally needed. Readers and followers want to know when their favorite bloggers are posting #sponsored content and what is truly genuine. In the post above by Song of Style, Aimee posted a photo with Volvo that was sponsored, which you can see in the location. What do you guys think of this update? Love it or leave it?

Because if Justin isn’t willing to sing it, at least we have Camila.
