Happy Friday, friends! How is everyone liking this cooler New England weather? I think it’s pretty great! Reg is hanging with fam today, and I’m excited to head to the New Britain Museum of American Art‘s summer party tonight – Museum After Dark. Doing anything fun this weekend? xo G&M

Hey all! Hope you’re all having lovely Fridays so far! Are your summer plans filling up as quickly as ours are? We got a lot coming up in the near future, so we’re taking this weekend to take it easy and enjoy this blissful weather. Hopefully you all get to do the same!

xo, G&M

cct // Saw this and had to laugh!

rkv // Ugh, as wonderful as summer is, it also comes with the great invasion of the fruit flies.  Because I refuse to let these little buggers impede my banana consumption, I will be trying this reusable trap this weekend!

Wait a minute. Is that? Yes, yes it is. It’s the sun I see shining through the window. After a week of some seriously drab weather in New England, I’m so pleased to see Mr. Sun once again. Hopefully it holds through the weekend for all of us, and we can enjoy being in the great outdoors! Now in case you’re wondering, Christa sadly is not blogging these links from Italy, but instead prepped them ahead of time (like the true over-planner that she is – love you, boo!).

Hope you all have all have some glorious weekends ahead of you!

cct // An interesting read on making the decision between “must” & “should”

rkv // I found this pretty free downloadable calendar for May. Perfect for you desk!

Happy Weekend!

I stumbled upon this image the other day and fell in love – it’s gorgeous and so appropriate for today! As you may have guessed, I’ve been pretty busy (and a tad stressed) getting things together for my trip, but I’m trying to just let go and let it happen (not so easy for a control freak) – and it’s going surprisingly well! But I am ready to get going…so Ciao, friends! I hope you all have fantastic couple of weeks while I’m gone – but first and foremost a great weekend! Check out our links and enjoy this beautiful Friday…xo G&M

cct // Just the cutest video about taking portraits of chickens…

rkv // I’ve been finding myself having a slight lack of sleep these days (which I’m sure has nothing to do with Pinterest), so I found this little beauty tutorial super helpful!

cct // Umm yes, I definitely want her job! Also, how did I not know this series existed??

rkv // Somehow my crazy friend Xiao talked me into doing the Narragansett 10k in July. I’m pretty awful at running, breathing has always been the most difficult part. If you guys have any tips I’d love to hear ’em!

cct // Wait, whattt?! I hope my hair is long enough!

rkv // I’ve been craving quiche for like a month. For some reason I haven’t gotten around to making any yet, but this deep dish recipe may be happening this weekend.

cct // Fingers crossed that the weather will be this good when we stop by Cinque Terre (first photo)!

rkv // I must admit, my house is a little gross right now. Four girls in one abode, all with full time jobs, things get a little dusty! For once I don’t have a much planned this weekend, so it may finally be time to crack down and deep clean.

Happy Weekend!

Happy almost weekend, lovelies! It’s finally beginning to feel like spring and we’re so ready to be outside! We hope it’s sunny and spring-like where you are this weekend and you can enjoy a few days off. Enjoy our links in the meantime, and ride this Friday out! xo G&M

cct // The video is pretty long, but totally worth it – this dude makes the most delicious looking pastries and you’ll be shocked by how it’s all done!

cct // I need more fresh cut flowers in my life, here are some insider tips on picking (and keeping) the best spring flowers!

It’s finally Friday, yay! And it’s officially Spring! Things just seem brighter and warmer (by like 2 degrees…). Let’s keep our fingers crossed for the continuation of Spring weather for this weekend and soak it all in! Before you escape outside, enjoy our Friday links and have a fantastic weekend friends!

cct // I stumbled upon Afar Magazine’s Guide to Florence, and I am so glad I did! Wonderful reviews from people’s travels, and I’m getting unbelievably excited for our trip (only about a month away!)

rkv // This watercolor mug diy is so simple and pretty!

cct // Apartment Therapy is one of my favs, but this particular post really caught my attention. Simple graphics that really demonstrate the power of pillows…

rkv // An egg personality test – what your favorite style egg says about you.

rkv // Because we ain’t made of money…how to give yourself an easy at-home mani/pedi

cct // The Every Girl’s idea about how “luxury” is changing is spot on. I am definitely with the idea of luxury being about experiences rather than things.

Happy Weekend!
