Weekend Links: 17

Hope everyone had a great week!  We are finally getting back into a routine over here after lots of travel and home renovations.  It sounds funny, but just sitting at a desk (instead of our dining table) to hammer out some emails felt so good.  We still have some work going on over here, but luckily it’s all outside now.  We had the tiles removed in a few spots around the house and are having pavers laid instead.  We think it will be a better look for the white exterior paint we went with.  We’re excited to watch it all come together and finally get a chance to unbox some of our patio furniture.  We’re almost there!  Check out a Q&A we did with Schoolhouse about our home over here.  This weekend we will be heading back to pilates, hoping to catch a movie, and just continue this little routine we got going on.  Hope everyone has a Happy Earth Day!

Weekend Links: 16

Happy Friday! We had a busy week getting things back together around the house and hosting our dear friends Joe and Tessa, while they were in town. It felt good to unplug a bit and show them around Phoenix, chat till the late hours of the night, and indulge in all of the city’s good food and sweet treats. They are two amazing souls and we are so grateful to have met them two years ago on our road trip. Seriously cannot believe that was two years ago already. Where is the time going?! Anyone have any fun weekend plans? We will be heading to a pot luck tonight with some friends and then hopefully going to pilates at some point. We justtt started reformer pilates, and boy oh boy are our muscles sore. We had no idea just how out of shape we were. Hah!

Hope everyone has an amazing weekend. Here are a few links from around the web we’ve been loving… READ MORE

PARIS: What To See

After going through literally hundreds of photos from Paris, we figured we’d break down our time there in a few posts. What to See, Where to Eat, Where to Stay (we shared three beautiful airbnbs a few days ago, click here if you missed it), and Where to Shop.

To keep things going, here’s a few favorite places that went we to that are must see’s in our book. Scenic views, beautiful parks, famous museums, and more! READ MORE

Weekend Links: 15

March ’17 might just be the craziest month in our 12+ years together.  It started with our dream trip to Paris for two weeks and is ending with a big remodel at our house…exterior paint, two bathrooms and kitchen fully redone.  We never thought good things could bring so much anxiousness and stress, but man, it’s tough not having access to much of your house while living in it.  We know we are close to the finish line, and it’s looking soooo great, so it’s all about having a bit of patience and letting go of your “normal” routine.  Been loving all of your insight and DMs through IG.  We’ve really enjoyed reading about your own remodel stories, tips, and tricks, so thank you so much for sharing! It’s also been really interesting bringing Henry with us basically everywhere we go. We can’t really leave him alone with all the tools, debris, and the fact that he thinks it’s all food. Haha!  He’s so gentle and kind, but still gets a little crazy around other dogs, so this has definitely been a test for him. He’s been pretty good for the most part, but there is still the occasional bark fest and spinning in circles. Once he’s close and can give them a good sniff, we’re all good. Haha!  Anywho, we can’t wait to share all the hard work that these guys and gals are putting into our home.  We are sooo close to getting back to some good ol’ home cooked meals!

Here’s some links for your browsing pleasure.  Enjoy and happy weekend!

1 – As our master bathroom renovations come to an end, we are most excited about our tub and all the baths we are going to take.  This article took away the guilt of all those thirty minute baths we took rather than going for that morning walk.

2 – We’ve been taking our gummy vitamins daily for years, but articles like this keep popping up and it’s making us feel like we’ve been duped.  What do you guys think?

3 – Our weeks always include a stop at Trader Joe’s, and we loved checking out this list of healthy foods that we’ll have to pick up on our next trip.

4 – Fleet Foxes are back! We’ve been loving all the teasers and comments from Robin Pecknold’s Instagram and this new song has been the only one playing around here lately.

5 – Our house renovation is still underway, but we can’t help but start to plan on our next project…the guest house!  This garage turned Bungalow is all sorts of inspiring.

6 – We were so lucky to have the opportunity to visit the Sézane Librarie while in Paris.  The space is gorgeous and we loved chatting with the staff while browsing the beautiful bags and books and sipping on some coffee.  Check out their new Spring Collection here before it’s all gone!

7 – If you didn’t get a chance to check out our latest Youtube video with Revlon and Tell the Birds, you can find it here. Don’t forget to subscribe!

8 – We love this brand!  These have been our go-to shoes for pretty much any occasion.  Do yourself a huge favor and add a pair to your life!

9 – Playing it safe used to really be our thing.  In the past few years, we’ve just started being a bit more risky and pushing ourselves to new places.  We really love this Risk-Taking 101 over on W&D.

10 – If you’re looking for a new blogger to follow, head over to Sea of Shoes and follow Jane on Instagram.  We had the pleasure of meeting Jane and Jeff while in Paris, and loved chatting with them about fashion, food, homes, traveling, relationships, and we feel like we’ve known them for years.  Love them!

A Flower Workshop in Paris

While in Paris, we had the pleasure of learning from one of the city’s great floral designers and owner of Les Fleurs de Pauline. We set up the workshop through Airbnb’s new Experience section on their website and had a pretty fun afternoon creating our own bouquet and chatting about the importance of florals in Paris.

Nordstrom Men’s Spring Favorites

Prada shoes | Saturdays NYC sweatshirt | Topman jeans

Spring is in full swing over here and we’re loving these breezy overcast days. We’ve been trying to spend as much time outdoors as we can, as our place is a little stuffy with all the dust, paint, and all the other fun stuff that goes along with a remodel. 😉 We’ve been in and out of the house a lot, and bringing Henry everywhere with us. It’s a lot of excitement for him, and we’re loving having the little guy with us just a little more than usual. Brunch, Home Depot, he’s becoming quite the explorer. Haha. We’re hoping that we’re about a week out from everything being complete, then a deep clean of the house and patio is next on our list.  READ MORE

A Visit to the Sézane Librairie

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.

#LoveIn3Words with Revlon

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.

Our Favorite Face Masks

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

Doughnuts with Pure Growth Organic

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
