Weekend Links: 23

Free People top (similar) | Madewell bandana | Ray-ban sunglasses | Sephora lip color in “Petal”

We’re so excited it’s the weekend!  It’s been a productive week for us.  We’ve been trying to go hard on the decorating over here as we are hosting some family this weekend and thought they should be welcomed by a home that isn’t bare and sad.  There’s nothing like family coming to town to get you a little motivated to get things done around the house.  We’re happy we got that kick in the butt! On Monday we’ll be heading up to Sedona to escape these Phoenix temps a bit and try to get some relaxing time by the pool and sightsee.  It’s been a while since we’ve been up north, so we are really excited about it.  Next week (6/28), we will be co-hosting a very special store opening in Phoenix of one of our favorite brands ever…West Elm.  We’ve gotten used to taking the drive up to North Scottsdale to shop there, but we are thrilled to be getting a store waaaaay closer to us here in Phoenix.  We will be sharing the details next week, so keep your eyes peeled for that.  We hope to see some of you there!  As always, we are sharing our favorite links from around the web this week.  We hope you guys enjoy them and have a great weekend!

June Book Round-Up with Audible

We travel a lot, but we haven’t taken a “lounge on the beach with a good book and drink in hand” kind of trip in a longggg time! Earlier this week while we were in Austin, we met up with some friends and started talking about this. We all crave adventure, to see new cities, and experience new things, but there’s something to be said about indulging in the type of trip where you do almost nothing and it is basically everything. Haha! Our honeymoon was a similar type of trip. We actually weren’t even planning on a big getaway, but family insisted that we would want/”need” a honeymoon after the crazy wedding planning. Well, they were right and we were so happy we did. We’re not huge beach people and very ironically we went to Cancun. It is still one of our favorite trips to date. We sat on the beach almost every morning… READ MORE

Our Beach Favorites 2017

via

It feels funny to do a “beach favorites” post when there isn’t a beach within 200 miles of us, but hey, we have pools. Ha! This weekend we have some family coming to town and because it’s a bit too hot to sightsee, we’ll probably be hanging around the pool as much as we can.  We’ve rounded up some of our favorite beach essentials from around the web.  Hope you guys are enjoying these (official) first days of summer.  Where are some of your favorite beaches around the country?  We’d love to add one to our list of “places to visit” this summer.

What a week it’s been over here!  We spent the first half of the week in L.A. for some workshops and work meetings, one day in Phoenix, and this weekend we’ll be in Austin, TX for a fun Canon event at Precision Camera.  We love these small trips after doing so many big ones lately.  It’s nice to get thrown into a new city, explore a bit, meet up with some friends, and then get back home.  It’s also great to be able to travel with just a carry-on too!  Tonight we’ll be in Austin meeting up with our good pals, Olivia and Blake.  We’re so excited!  Hope everyone has a great weekend and a happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there.  Below are some links from around the web we’ve been liking.  Enjoy!

Our Favorite Bath Products

Probably the biggest thing we were looking forward to with our master bath remodel, was the soaking tub! Now that the kitchen and bathrooms are done, we are taking full advantage of it a few nights a week. It’s the best way to unwind, and as much as we have tried to incorporate a work out routine as a form of stress relief and well just strengthening our overall mental and physical health, nothing has proved to be more calming or indulgent as a simple bath. We’ll prop up the laptop with a favorite Netflix or Hulu show, or bring in a book, and just lay there for a bit. Some calming drops of lavender or rose scented bath salts are also a plus. Here are a few of our favorite bath products as of late, that will help you get the most out of your “me” time.

Happy Friday! We hope everyone had a good week.  It’s been pretty scorching hot over here in Phoenix and we’ve been doing our best to stay cool in the 100+ degree heat.  We’ve been spending lots of time in our yard regardless, and potting some plants on our patio that we’re so excited to share with you guys in the coming weeks.  This weekend we’ll be shooting a few projects, and getting our house in order before a couple small trips next week to L.A. and Austin.  We’ll be hosting an event in Austin with Canon at Precision Camera & Video on 6/17! It will be a fun afternoon of photo taking, adventuring, and a ton of great prizes. Click here for more details and to register for the event. 🙂

And now, in true Friday fashion here are a few of our favorite links from around the web.  Enjoy!

3 Must-Have Summer Lipstick Shades

Ahh lipstick, you pull a look together so easily. I always love a little color on my lips, especially during the summer time. Most people are finding shades that will compliment their sun kissed skin, and while I’m SPF 50+ all the way, finding a fun bright color is still on the top of my summer must-haves list. I recently minimized my makeup stash when we redid our master bath. I wanted the drawers and cabinets to be clutter free and what I realized is that I really just mix up my lip shades ever so slightly with the change in season. So what are the 3 must have shades in everyone’s makeup kit? Coral, pink, and red. Simple and easy. I have found I just deepen these shades for fall and winter, but keep these three basic color families on rotation. READ MORE

Put a bow on it!

It’s been a while since we’ve shared an outfit post. With all the crazy time changes and climate changes, I haven’t really thought about style for Arizona this season too much. I’m not fully ready to dive into shorts and tank tops, despite what the triple digits over here are telling me to do, so I think think this comfy blush and beige look will have to suffice. 😉 We snapped some photos on our way out of our friend’s flower shop the other day, because really, the set up at Camelback Flowershop is always too beautiful not to photograph. (We brought home some great plants for the living room! Can’t wait to share the space with you guys!)
