Sweet Beats // January 2015

january15

This winter has been doing some work on me in terms of my health. I’ve been trying to stick with that resolution to exercise regularly, but it seems like every time I get into a rhythm my body chooses to shut down and get the flu… and then I faint on a train. Did that actually happen? Yes. Luckily I didn’t fully lose consciousness, a kind samaritan gave me his seat, and I was already on my way to the doctor. So it was pretty much a best-case-scenario.

Anyways, this playlist will hopefully help us all out with the fitness routine, granted we’re all in good health! I’ve found these songs to have a pretty solid beat that’s ideal for zoning out to. You can get a good run on with Lion Babe, Blacroc is perfect for strength training, and stretching feels amazing while zoning out to M.I.A. Get out there and kill it, ladies.

Put a Scarf on It, Part Une

Hey all, and welcome to our first official post of the new year! Hope you all had a splendid couple of days off, and feeling alive and ready to rock 2015’s world.

Two weekends back, Christa threw her annual holiday pot-luck, which we always make a dressy occasion (because, why not?). The day of, we were sort of on a roll. Somehow we had managed to get two post photo-shoots done, the house tidied, and meals started, all before 3:00. At this point we figured hey, we’re getting dressed up anyways, might as well get some outfit shots out of it!

And since no New England winter look is complete without a scarf, here is our tribute.

(By the way, I swear I smile more than this… I was just trying to channel my inner Tyra with my “smeyes.”)
