It’s no secret I’ve been a fan of Sézane for quite some time now. We have had the pleasure of working closely with the brand over the course of the last year and just when I think they can’t get any better, they release a new collection that is innovative yet still somehow retains their classic feel and nod to years past. Their bags and shoes are some of the most well made pieces in my closet and I was thrilled to visit their librairie while we were in Paris.

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.

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. 🙂
Here are a few current favorites… 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. 🙂

Jazz records have always been our go-to for our morning playlist. Our daily routine always starts with taking Henry for an early morning walk around the neighborhood, coming home and boiling water in the kettle for our coffee and tea, and picking out our morning record. READ MORE

Greetings from New York! We’re back on the east coast, spending time with family and friends in some chilly weather. We took the red eye, which is never a fun flight and arrived early yesterday morning, so we’ve just been taking it easy, adjusting to the time difference, and getting some bonding time in with our nephews. We’re heading into the city for some fun today, but here’s a look at some photos we shot before leaving Phoenix. I haven’t worn a heavy print like this in a while (as I’ve been pretty partial to neutrals lately), but I couldn’t pass up this pretty feminine blouse. Blush pink is one of my favorites, and the soft florals with all black felt like the perfect mix for these early Spring-like days in Phoenix. READ MORE

Oh, Valentine’s Day. We can’t believe we’ve celebrated 13 of you now. I remember being in our late teens and celebrating with chicken fingers and fries, eating in bed and watching movies all night. Life was pretty simple when we were dating and carefree. We spent so much time laying around and daydreaming about our future. It was pretty amazing actually.
[a few pages out of our photo albums above]
Well, the future has arrived for us. All the thoughts and plans of one day running off to a new city, settling down somewhere and having our own house have finally come to be. It definitely wasn’t as easy as the thoughts we had in our teenage brains back in 2005, but we made it here together. Valentine’s Day might be the most important day for some, a special date night for others, and just a silly made up holiday for the rest. We definitely don’t go all out every year. We celebrate love in a lot of ways and we try to keep each other guessing on special date nights and surprises, so Valentine’s Day doesn’t necessarily always fall on the 14th for us.
This year we’ll be traveling back to New York on the day of love. How fitting that all those daydreams of one day running off and living in our dream house have finally come true and we’ll be going back to where it all started instead of celebrating in our new house. Part of us is wondering what the heck were we thinking booking a trip on the night of Valentine’s Day, but realistically we are just so excited to know that we can go visit all of our old, favorite spots back home, spend time with our new baby nephew, enjoy a bit of cold weather, and most importantly, remember when we first fell in love. New York is flooded with memories for us. Our first date at the park, that middle point between our two houses where we used to meet on early spring days, the parking lot where every one in town would meet on Friday night and we would just laugh and be silly until we were the last ones there.
We’ve definitely come a long way. It hasn’t always been easy. We constantly think about the conversations we had when we were seventeen and the one’s we have now. So much has changed, but at the end of the day we are still here…growing up together…watching things evolve…and pushing each other to be the best versions of ourselves we could be. Whether or not you celebrate Valentine’s Day, we hope you are all making memories you can be proud of, falling in love with someone or something or some place because when you look back and reflect on the past, you’ll appreciate all the little things you never thought mattered.
