Twenty Minute Tastes- Ep. 1

As some of you witnessed on Big Brother 17, we LOVE food + cooking. So, we decided to take our talents to the kitchen and create a cooking vlog! In our first episode, we make a #BBChopped classic: Maple Bacon and Cornflake Mac + Cheese. We’ll be posting more videos like this every week, so stay tuned and stay hungry!

All our twin love, XO

Winter in Miami

IMG_3475

So we’re midway through November and Miami is still a whopping 80 something degrees. Ay dios mio. We’re handling #WinterInMiami the best way we know how, by hitting the beach! We drove over to Key Biscayne, a barrier island off the coast of Miami-Dade County. Us Miamians refer to it as “The Key,” and it’s a great alternative to the very crowded and touristy Miami Beach. All you have to do is pay $1.75 for the Sunpass toll and Key Biscayne is all yours to explore!

Some of our favorite places to check out in Key Biscayne are:

Landmarks: Bill Baggs State Park & Cape Florida Lighthouse, Miami Marine Stadium, Crandon Park, and Stiltsville.

Restaurants: Sir Pizza, Rusty Pelican, Donut Gallery Diner, Kazumi Japanese, The Wetlab, and Boater’s Grill.

Attractions: Miami Seaquarium

In these photos we sported matching bikini’s and rocked these gorgeous, handmade halo’s by Mermaid Halo Boutique. Are you a brand looking to showcase your goodies? Shoot us an email at NolanTwinsBooking@gmail.com to collab.

Mamma MIA!

IMG_3209

We’re so excited to be one of MIA shoes’ newest brand ambassadors! In this post, we’re featuring the lines signature #MIAclogs, which are perfect for adding a bit of extra style to a casual look. The clogs are not only SO comfy, but are also great for running errands around town or spending the afternoon beachside.

Describe your style in a few words. As twins, do you girls share a similar style?

Most of our fashion inspiration comes from our surroundings and where we grew up, MIAMI. We love wearing whites, creams and greys year round. Miami’s fashion is chic and light, with a dash of sexiness. We have a very similar style, we love lightweight fabrics that flow in the ocean breeze and bright colors that reflect the warmth of the city.

How will you dress up your Clogs this Holiday (Thanksgiving) season? Tell us how you would both wear them for Holiday parties.

Jeans, a fitted tee and a blazer or a flowy cocktail dress with statement accessories.

How will you style your favorite MIA Swedish Clogs from day to day this fall?

In Miami, we don’t really experience the true fall/winter climate so we’d rock our fave MIA Swedish clogs with a flowy mini dress and throw over a jean jacket.

Tell us your favorite trend for this Fall Season…

We’re loving fitted mini-skirts with a higher-raised hemline this fall season. They’re perfect for showing off our long legs and favorite Greta clogs.

Tell us why you picked the MIA Elsa and Greta Clog…

We picked the MIA Elsa and Greta clog because they are MIA classics! They are SO comfortable and are perfect to rock in the Miami heat!

If you could pick 3 MIA Shoe styles to rock this season, which would you choose? (Check out www.miashoes.com for more)

  1. MIA Nata
  2. MIA Benni
  3. MIA Estelle

Shop the look: Red leather clogs, Brown leather clogs

How Sweet It Is

IMG_2799

We stumbled upon these scrumptious looking walls in Wynwood and had to snap a couple pics. We’re from Miami, so we don’t believe in the saying “You can’t wear white after Labor Day.”

We’re in love with this timeless white lace-up top from TopShop that Julia is rocking. It’s extremely versatile; pair it with cute jeans, high waisted shorts, or a fitted skirt. The jeans are also from TopShop and give the look a unique edge.

Stripes are making a comeback people! Liz is wearing a striped crop top from TopShop. We paired the tee with basic black skinny jeans and black strappy heels.

Shop the look: Criss-Cross Shirt, Striped Crop Top, High-Waisted Jeans, Black Jeans, Shoes

Similar but Different

IMG_2716

We fell in love with these similar but different matching outfits. The skirt or pant ensemble are perfect for a productive day followed by a well-deserved happy hour. The best part about these outfits is that you can mix and match them for more options. The wide cut of the high waisted pants paired with the rich pops of color embolden the look.

A little twin update: we are pretty excited to say that we just signed with Caroline Gleason Models in Miami. We’ve been modeling since the age of 17, so it feels great to get back into it! We also just got back from a weekend in Vegas with the rest of the BB17 cast. We’ll be posting photos of our Halloween adventures on our Facebook page soon!

Shop the look: Top, Pants, Shoes, Sunglasses, Skirt

Twinning

IMG_2486

What’s the best part about being a twin you might ask? MATCHING OUTFITS. Jk, we rarely dress alike, but hey, it’s fun once in a while! Today we took to the streets of Wynwood, a graffiti-ridden neighborhood in the heart of the city. Formerly known as an industrial warehouse district, Miami’s hottest artists transformed its walls into something spectacular, making it a hidden local gem.

Our friends at Casper + Pearl, an Australian based clothing company, gave us these adorable matching outfits to rock under the Miami heat. Featured is the ‘North’ top and ‘Snapchat’ shorts from their newly released Cyber Collection. We paired the outfits with simple gold accessories, trying not to overpower the already bold outfits. The shoes are BCBG and give a little edge to the ensemble.

Straight Outta Miami

IMG_2634

Hi! We’re the Nolan twins. Some of you may know us from Big Brother 17, others from the Miami nightlife circuit, or simply because we’re unlike your typical identical twins. We wanted to give you guys a little bit of an intro about our lives and briefly tell you about our crazy cool #BB17 experience!

So, where do we begin? Our story is a very interesting one as we were definitely not your ordinary Big Brother house guests. We were brought into the game as the ‘Twin Twist,’ switching in and out of the house pretending to be one person. The game was an emotional roller coaster, we not only had to sacrifice one of our identities, but we also had to survive 98 days in a drama-filled studio set. The game? 17 house guests competing in cut throat competitions to win half a million dollars. No Internet, no phones, no access to the outside world, nada. The catch? We were finally allowed to play the game as two individual players if we survived 5 evictions. It was NOT easy to say the least, however, the twin team prevailed- Julia finishing in 6th place and Liz winning runner up.

Now a little bit about our lives before Big Brother. We are identical twins (yes identical) born and raised in sunny Miami, FL. We grew up in this wonderful fast-paced city and quickly adapted to our surroundings. We started modeling at the age of 17 and obvi took advantage of all that Miami had to offer: South beach clubbing, boating in Biscayne Bay, and working for our mother’s catering company, allowed us to be grounded yet enjoy a glimpse of the good life.

Fast forward to our young adult life. We attended Loyola University New Orleans where we received Bachelor of Arts degrees in business marketing and journalism. We graduated in May 2014, and exactly one year after college, we were chosen for a once in a lifetime opportunity- to be on CBS’ Big Brother 17.

Now that the show is over, we decided to leave our day jobs and follow our dreams. Growing up in one of the most fashion forward cities, we have both been extremely passionate about style from an early age. On our blog, you’ll find affordable ways to look like a million bucks, fun video tutorials of our adventures, and a closer look at what life is really like having a carbon copy.

We’re so excited to share our journey and blog with you all! For even more twin updates, don’t forget to follow us on our social handles:
