Ah, Paris! We completely fell in love with the city and got super lucky with our Airbnb being super close to so many great cafés and shops. (More details about the apartments coming soon! I know some of you guys are planning trips to Paris, and were inquiring about where we stayed.) We snapped some photos on the way to breakfast at Holybelly one morning, while passing through this pretty square. It was quite windy that day so layers were ideal and gave me the opportunity to bust out this leather jacket that has been collecting dust in my closet. 😉 I toned it down with a pleated blush skirt and feminine off the shoulder top.

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

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.

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. 🙂
Here are a few current favorites… READ MORE

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. 🙂
