We’ve been working on our master bathroom and are slowly starting to see some progress. As you might have seen on IG, we extended our trip in Paris due to the delays at JFK with the blizzard. We’ve been keeping in touch with our contractor while we’re away and things weren’t as far along as we had originally thought they would be for our original return date, so after getting a few alerts on our phones about the storms and flights being canceled, we got in touch with the airline and switched our flight. We’ll be in Paris for a few extra days, which is a win-win: giving us extra time to explore the city and our contractor extra time to complete things, or at least get a little further with the project. Our friend Sarah has been keeping us updated and in the loop with the progress, along with many photo updates which we’ve been loving!
Here’s a peek at the current state of the house: READ MORE
A few weeks ago we had the pleasure of shooting a video with Breea of TellTheBirds. We had shot with Breea several years ago when we started the blog, and were so thrilled to be able to work together again while she was in Phoenix. We recently partnered with Revlon and the Women’s Heart Health Alliance on their #LoveIn3Words campaign. We love the message about spreading love in everything you do…from loving and respecting yourself to small acts of kindness you could share with others each day.

Back in the spring of 2011, we were spending a few days in south Florida visiting some family. The two of us spent an afternoon downtown having lunch and then spontaneously decided to catch a movie. We had no idea what was playing, nor did we really care too much. It was one of those days where going to the movies was all we wanted to do. We have those days quite a bit actually, but there is just something about watching a story unfold, eating popcorn and snacks, tuning out the real world, and getting sucked in to a good film. We looked at the list of movies playing, and the title Midnight in Paris caught our eye. We had recalled seeing the trailer a bit before our trip and have loved Woody Allen for years, so it felt like the perfect afternoon date.
We’ve been traveling quite a bit again, and with all the weather changes our skin has definitely been taking a beating. We’re not as bold as to wear a face mask while flying, but we do have a few favorites that we like to use when we get back to our Airbnb at night, and will be indulging with when we get home from our travels. 🙂
Bonjour! We arrived in Paris two days ago and couldn’t be more excited to be here. Our flight arrived early Thursday morning and we completely embraced the light rain that welcomed us in. It was cloudy and cozy and pretty perfect. On our way to our Airbnb we watched through our cab’s window, as we peeked in on the city’s morning commute…watching children walk to school clutching to their parents’ side and business men and women rush to the subway with a coffee in hand and headphones in. Even in our sleep deprived state, we immediately felt lucky to be here and experience their culture for a few days. READ MORE
We have made some big changes to our diets over the last year that have made a big impact on our bodies, skin, and even how we sleep. We cut out beef and pork, and put a larger emphasis on veggies and fish while using organic ingredients when cooking at home. Phoenix has some amazing restaurants that are vegan and vegetarian friendly, and although we eat chicken and fish, these places have become some of our favorites because of their fresh and organic ingredients. One of our favorites is The Coronado and on top of their incredible potato and cauliflower tacos, they make the best pastries! We’re definitely snackers around here, so when our families heard about the changes we made to our diets they were a little shocked. Haha. We took a stab at baking our own doughnuts at home with some fun toppings from Pure Growth Organic recently, and we’re embarrassed to admit they were gone in two days! Read on for the recipe and more about some of our favorite organic snacks. READ MORE
The new LIKEtoKNOW.it app is here! If you’re unfamiliar with LIKEtoKNOW.it, it’s an app that allows you to get ready-to-shop links straight to your inbox via your favorite fashion and home decor photos on Instagram. We have been users of their older platform and you most likely have seen their links in our IG captions. They recently made some changes and launched a brand new app, making everything super simple. So now, when you screenshot an image from Instagram, Snapchat, IG stories, or even Pinterest, you’ll get a push notification with the sources for all outfit and product details from each photo. Pretty cool, right?
Read on for more details about the app and a few photos featuring my new favorite trench. 🙂
Here’s a peek at our entry way that finally feels complete, clean, and fresh. Can’t wait to get started on the other rooms next Wednesday! This weekend will consist of a lot of prep, organizing, and getting ready for home projects and our trip to Paris! We are beyond excited! What’s everyone up to this weekend?
Here’s a few links from around the web we loved this week:

2 – Did you catch our NYC posts? We had so much fun on our recent trip to New York and shared a post here and here.

4 – This song has always been a favorite, and we’ve been playing it a lot over here lately.
6 – We love a good chambray! Here’s one for him & her that we’ve been eyeing.

8 – Arizona isn’t just cactus, cowboys and tumbleweed! Here’s a great write-up on things to do in Scottsdale, AZ.
9 – We tried this mask the other night while we binged a bit of our favorite tv shows, and it’s become a new favorite.
10 – If you’re looking for a new blogger to follow, head over to Sugar & Cloth and follow Ashley & Jared on Instagram. We were lucky enough to meet them on our Mediterranean cruise last summer, and they have become great friends who are constantly inspiring us. They just got married and are sharing so many breathtaking photos from their gorgeous honeymoon. We love ’em!
Ever since my sister graduated from the Aveda institute, Rob and I have both been hooked on their products…hair care, bath exfoliants, the list goes on. So when I was asked to try out their Invati System for thinning hair and partner with Aveda on this post, I jumped on the opportunity. Let me rewind a bit…
Happy Wednesday! Hope everyone’s been having a good week! We’ve been graced with a few rainy days over here and we’re certainly not complaining. When there is 100% chance of rain in Phoenix, you bust out your umbrella, throw on your rain boots andtrench coat, and head out for the day! READ MORE
