Wowie, Friday already! The countdown to halloween costumes has begun…what are you being?? Christa is twinning with a friend for a very fun, homemade costume, and Reg sadly has made very little progress on that front (but luckily her wardrobe allows her to be an impromptu gypsy at any moment). What’re you guys gonna be?? Have you checked out Studio DIY for ideas?? They’re all AMAZING.

Have a great weekend!

Can we just talk about this delicious looking truck for a second?! We don’t know if we’ve ever seen an automobile look so damn fine. Carb City, and we want in on that.

ANYWAYS, back to real life. We’re here with our Friday links (sorry for the radio silence last Friday, life can be so hectic sometimes!) Christa was in Colorado with Curtis visiting her brother from last Thursday-Tuesday (you may have seen some instagram pictures here & here), and this week has just been insane! I think the full moon week crazy-vibes came a week early…

But is everyone amped for the weekend? We’ll be spending it in Hartford together, shooting our first official contribution post for CT Eats Out! Can’t wait to team up with these guys and share with you all what we come up with. We’ll be doing a monthly post for them, so stay tuned!


cct // Still trying to do the “eat less sweets” thing, but it’s girl scout cookie season, and things like this mock me…

rkv // Yum yum dan dan

cct // I love finding DIYs that are beautiful and not that hard (insert heart eye emoji here)

rkv // Often times when I tell people that I can be pretty shy, they’re a little surprised (considering I definitely have a boisterous side). But one arena that always makes me tense up is networking, so I found this to be a nice read.

cct // Love me some Boho outfits

rkv // 13 personal trainers giving some of their best advice

cct // Design*Sponge is killing it right now — loving this, this & this.

Hey all, whatchya got going on this weekend? We’re embracing these last few weeks of winter with a little r&r, and feel pretty shameless about it. Christa has a couple low-key birthday get-togethers, while Reg will be found watching movies on the couch under mountains of blankies (shocking).

Have a beautiful weekend 🙂

rkv // A creative spin on the classic grilled cheese


 

 

Happy Weekend!

Hello, dearies — hope you all had a lovely week, and have an even lovelier couple of days ahead of you. We’re stunned that next week is Thanksgiving. How did that happen??? It feels like as we get older, time goes by so much quicker. Are any of you all feeling similarly?

This past week our small home town in CT experienced some devastating news about a young mother, a member of our graduating class, who suddenly passed. In combination of learning this, of the troubling news in Paris, as well as world-wide current events  — it’s definitely resulting in some self-reflection. This week we’re feeling especially grateful for our friends, family, and the wonderful community that we were raised in.

While we have mushy hearts this week, we also still have our care-free nature about us. We’ve rounded up our weekly links for you all, hope you enjoy, and we’ll see you on Monday 🙂


cct // Embroidery with sprinkles, say whaaa?

rkv // Don’t hold yourself back! How to ask for a raise

cct // I’ve just been lovin’ the half up/half down looks these days!

rkv // Last weekend I lopped off about 7 inches of hair, and this tutorial has been my everything ever since

cct // Why Do We Romanticize Stress?

rkv // 15 bizarre, yet amazing, hotels — #6!

cct // So I learned this smiling trick a while back (the last one on the list), and I really do think it helps! Give it a try this weekend while you’re takin selfies with your ladies before going out 😉

rkv // And the best article-title-ever award goes to…. How to Ron Swanson Your Life


Happy Weekend!

Hello loves! Wow, it’s already Friday?! This week has been busy and we’ve been looking forward to this weekend so much that I’m astonished it went by so fast! We’ve got a full weekend ahead of hanging out, catching up with friends and partying it up, and we can’t wait! What are you up to this weekend?

cct // Since moving into the new apartment, decluttering and really paying attention to what we want vs. need has been a big priority in our house. Curtis got this great book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing, and it really has changed our lives!

rkv // Oh, hello there, blackberry mojito

cct // This overhead lighting DIY is gorgeous!

rkv // Just when we thought that snow was gone

cct // Find ways to travel people, it’s life changing! 

rkv // While cardio certainly is not my favorite thing, it’s nice to have some tips on how to get an effective workout on the elliptical

cct // There are 2 kinds of people

rkv // This couple quit their jobs to sail the world with their cat ❤

Happy Weekend!

Happy Valentine’s Day weekend, friends! Hope you’re all staying toasty out there with the ones you love! What’re your plans for the weekend? Ours will likely involve a whole lotta flannel, because it is freezing out there! We may both attempt to go sledding, depending on the weather, because there is ANOTHER potential blizzard heading our way… I just don’t even know what to say any more.

Have a fantastic weekend! PS I want that thumb ring.

rkv // this little list on how to make some mulla on Ebay is so great! I think I may actually give it a go!

cct // baha nail color names are pretty ridiculous

rkv // I found this post on Valentine’s Day from a dude’s perspective to be pretty cute — go figure they all involve being low-key and just spending time with another. Sounds about right, considering my guy and I will be enjoying a wonderful pizza dinner for two 🙂

cct // Well this sounds delicious! Fried lemons, who knew?!

rkv // Om nom nom homemade chia seed jam

cct // I see a fun typography project this spring, anyone have a blank wall?

rkv // The best way to reheat a slice of pizza. Man, I talk about pizza a lot, huh?

cct // I’m all ears on help in the landing-a-great-job department, and these tips are very insightful! I can’t wait to see what else she’s got to share!

Happy Weekend!

Happy Friday, friends! It looks like it’s going to be very Fall-ish this weekend, unlike last weekend, and we’re pretty excited! Christa is heading up to Vermont to visit family and check out the foliage and Reg is making brunch with the ladies tomorrow, followed by who knows what!

We’ve got our usual links below. Have a fabulous couple days off! xo G&M

cct // Speaking of foliage, how’s your state doing? CT is getting there, but it probably needs about a week or 2 for peak colors. Vermont looks like it should be just right for our visit this weekend! You can check out the US here, and state by state estimation here.

rkv // 20 ways to style the classic white button-down

cct // I heard a snippet of Lena Dunham’s Fresh Air interview with Terry Gross, and came across some videos she made to promote her book, and I’m impressed! I was happily surprised that although she is similar to Hannah on Girls, she is a much more aware and less self absorbed in real life (from what I could tell haha). This video made me like her even more!

rkv // Love this idea for DIY mismatched painted flatware

cct // I need to do this. right. now! Such a perfect DIY for my little apartment!

rkv // I mean, just because it’s Britain’s smallest horse.

cct // I have such a thing for bedding, and it’s always great to find out more tips and tricks! 

rkv // It’s October, so we can officially start thinking about Halloween costumes without seeming like the over-planners that we are. If you’re looking for some deas, here’s Buzzfeed’s “Which 90’s Halloween Costumer Should You Be?” quizz.

Happy Weekend!

We’re supposed to get major snow on Monday, but we’re in denial. Instead, take a look at these gorgeous green hills and think spring! Also make sure to check out our Friday links…

cct // I swear the sunsets have been extra great these days (they’re very cotton candy-ish), they remind me of this photography series

rkv // Christa recently bought me a new canvas tote by the artist KT Smail, and now we’re pretty much obsessed with her. So imagine my excitement when I saw some new desktop backgrounds that she made featured on DesignLoveFest!

cct // The Oscars are on Sunday, and these days the outfits are almost as important as the movies! Check out Marie Claire’s list of best Oscar dresses of all time.

rkv // Speaking of the Oscars…This weekend we’re hosting a small get together for the big event, so I may need to snag an idea or two from Cupcakes and Cashmere for party prepping

cct // This DIY has been circulating the web, and you can see why- it’s great! New project for this weekend perhaps?

rkv // I’ve been a bit behind on that New Years rezzie I made to myself about getting back into a gym routine, but I’ve finally got a little momentum going again so I appreciated these quick and effective moves by the Huffington Post

cct // Guys, I learned how to screenprint! This was my first piece, and I can’t wait for more projects 🙂 If anyone has any tips or tricks, I would love to hear them!

rkv // Love this simple idea for displaying old family recipes

Enjoy your weekend, all!

xo, G&M

Happy Weekend

Ah at last, Friday is upon us. Not sure about you guys, but we’ve been having some serious motivational issues up in here. It’s still cold and grey outside, and we’re getting sick of wearing the same waterproof shoes every day. It’s times like these when we need to kick our tushes into gear, and do something for ourselves. Something inspiring, awakening… anything! Just as long as it’s something for yourself that makes you feel like you’re in a good place. Take this weekend as an opportunity for a little self growth, relaxation, and reflection. Happy weekend, friends!

rkv // This elevated egg mcmuffin by Cupcakes and Cashmere looks to die for

cct // Speaking of motivation, Emma from A Beautiful Mess talking about life long dreams was truly inspiring and will hopefully brighten any gloomy feelings!

rkv // Some homemade steam facials for a little r&r

cct // This has got to be the best tumblr out there (almost an oxymoron, I know). She has compiled the most beautiful images with a soothing playlist to boot!

rkv // In case you live under a rock like me, and still have yet to see Jimmy Fallon’s ragtime Remix to Ignition

cct // If you’re as into Whiskey as I (we?) am/are, I hope you live close enough to one of these places! *Reg, we’re going to Saloon soon!

rkv // Have you ever seen a sweater at the thrift store with a sick pattern, but looks like it should fit an elf? Well, apparently you can make a laptop or kindle case out of it.

cct // I don’t think I can pick just one of these soaps, they all seem amazing! But this one in particular caught my eye, I could really go for some detoxifying.
