How’s everyone feelin’ after the holiday? Full of food and love, we hope! We’ve got another short week ahead of us, and it will officially be 2016, what whatttt? We’re feelin’ excited about this new year, thinking of all of the projects, adventures and fun we’re going to have both in life and on the blog. We’ve also have been reflecting back on this past year, which has been full of posts that we’re very proud of. Reminisce with us for a moment and check out our favorite posts of 2015

Pins We Love

Good morning! How was everyone’s weekend? Hope it was both relaxing and exciting all at once. It’s finally sort of starting to feel like spring around here (and by that, I mean that we can wear flats and rolled up jeans without our ankles shivering), so we’re feeling inspired and light. We feel like cleaning, painting, cooking, & exercising all at once. While of course that’s probably over-ambitions and we’re likely to only get one of those tasks done if we’re lucky, it’s nice to dream! Here are some of our favorite pretty pins keeping us inspired this week:

Loving Now // Burgundy Lips

We’ve been feeling awfully cooped up these days, and in ultra hibernation mode. While sitting on the couch with fuzzy socks and binge watching Nashville is all well and good, it can easily lead to feeling a little frumpy. Sometimes we gotta just force ourselves out of the house and onto the town. What’s a good way to push you into that? An edgy new beauty look.

Burgundy lips can be surprisingly versatile as far as style goes. Throw the color on with your leather (or faux) jacket and metallic earrings for a rocker look, a deep side part and waves for your inner 40s vixen, or try out a boho-etherial vibe with some braids or a felt hat. For you ladies with those big pouts out there, please do us a favor and give this velvety look a shot, so we can live vicariously through your show-stopping ways. This lip color positively screams dinner & drinks with the girls.

Copy Cat

gm_copycat_Jan15

If you can’t tell, this season we’re kind of very into neutrals — specifically greys and blacks.  It’s just so easy to match them, and when they’re all a great texture, you can look really pulled together. This little number is especially awesome, because it involves stretchy pants and sneakers — two staples for weekend daytime wear. And because these leggings are coated, with a quick change of the shoes you have your Saturday dinner outfit all ready to go. This wool-blend coat will keep you warm from the winter chill, and the beaded-tassel necklace keeps you on trend.

2015 Calendar Love

If there’s one thing to help us keep that New Year’s resolution of being more organized, it’s a fresh new calendar. People have really been stepping up their design game for them these last few years, and we’re finding it tough to pick just one!

How was your NYE and New Year’s Day? We still can’t believe it’s 2015 – crazy! And what a year it has been! We are so thankful for a wonderful FULL year of blogging in 2014, and are very excited to see what our new adventures, projects and encounters will be in 2015, both for the blog and personally. Cheers to the future! xo G&M

rkv // A non-terrifying detox juice to kickoff 2015

cct // With New Year’s resolutions becoming the focal point of the week, make sure to be kind to yourself while setting goals for the upcoming year

rkv // We love ourselves a good craft — DIY statement wall using paint pens

cct // It’s that time of year again – the time when we all go, “shit I should have been going to the gym all year long…”. Now don’t all go running (ha, yeah right) to the gym now, you know how packed it is. BUT you can at least take advantage to all of the workout gear sales! H&M is ramping up their collection, and I know Gap has some major discounts happening.

rkv // Apartment Therapy’s best advice for a healthier, happier, stress free home 

cct // I finally saw Wild this weekend! I read the book last year and was really excited to finally see it. I am even more excited to report back that I loved it! Also, the soundtrack is pretty awesome.

rkv // Tasty homemade red pepper hummus 

cct // Curtis and I are on the hunt for a new apartment, and this apartment on The Everygirl spoke to me – so beautiful! Have you checked out apartment tours on The Evergirl? They’re pretty amazing – here, here & here are a couple other favorites of mine! Get inspired this new year!

*PS – #fbf to last year’s New Years Resolution post! We’re stickin with those general resolutions, because they’re great things to strive for in life – New Years resolutions or not!
