The last place we stopped on our way out of Palm Springs was Moorten Botanical Garden. It was on our list of places to check out and we are so glad we did. This place was truly magical and we instantly fell in love with it! We’ve been to our fair share of gardens and nurseries, but there was something about this one that was so special.
If you follow along with us on instagram and snapchat, you probably saw that we recently took a mini vacation to Palm Springs. We both have been wanting to go for quite a while now and this trip couldn’t have come at a better time. Palm Springs is only a few hours from Phoenix, so it was definitely the perfect (extended) weekend getaway. The morning of our trip we threw some clothes, swimsuits and our camera in a bag and hit the road. Four hours later, after a few car singalongs and laugh attacks, we arrived in Palm Springs!Read More
Since posting our living room makeover (which you all have been so sweet about!), we’ve gotten a few emails and comments about our plant baskets. The two above in the first photo are from Ikea and Home Goods. We’ve also found some pretty great ones at some local thrift stores too, like the magazine one in the second photo. We have baskets in every room in our apartment. We’re slightly obsessed. They’re perfect for storing blankets, magazines and books, laundry, housing plants….the list goes on! Here’s a little round up of some of our favorite baskets on the web!Read More
Most of the time it feels like we're all working for the weekend, counting down the days until Saturday arrives and we're free of responsibilities...well at least for the most part. Everyone always talks about "weekend indulgences", how it's a time for comfort and relaxing and we couldn't agree more, but what about the weekdays? …
We are so excited to finally share our living room makeover! We’ve been working with the amazing team at West Elm, since May, designing our new space. For us, the living room is one of our most used rooms in our home. It’s where we hang out with friends, have movie nights, spontaneous dance parties, and binge watch Netflix. We knew that moving in to the location that we’re in meant sacrificing a bit of space. This living room is a little smaller than our last (see our first apartment here), measuring about 10 x 12 feet. After going back and forth a bit and weighing out all of our options, we decided to start from scratch and create the living room we always dreamed of. We loved each of the pieces in our old place individually, however it never truly felt like it all came together for us. So we sold some of our old furniture, gave a few pieces away to friends to enjoy, and started with a clean slate.Read More
