Happy Weekend!

Hey dolls — whatchya all up to this weekend? My house is gonna be a little on the quiet side this weekend, with one of my roommates out of town. I also have my first big hair chop in years coming up tomorrow. I’m freakin’ out a little, but looking forward to a fresh change. I’m also hoping to get in a thorough apartment clean AND a d.i.y. — this is probably all far too ambitious for two days, but we’ll see how it goes! Christa will be bouncing all around as well, with a friend’s birthday bonfire celebration, checking out Hartford’s Open Studios, and a swanky new cocktail bar that opened up, Little River Restoratives.

Hope you all have a nice weekend, see you on Monday!

Happy Weekend!

Happy happy Friday, wonderful people! What a week! Christa was wrapping things up for some time off from work next week, with a trip (actually many little trips) to New Hampshire, Denver and Old Lyme (woo!), and Reg’s been keeping busy with a hectic work week, sprinkled with social gatherings of friends. What are you all up to this weekend? Hope it’s a good one!

cct // Any Nashville fans in the house? We’re loving this Free People interview with Clare Bowen (aka Scarlett)!

rkv // Well this sounds positively delightful

cct // This Here Is What The Same Person Looks Like In Dressing Rooms For 20 Different Stores photo essay is both infuriating and oh so true. I feel your pain girl, shit’s hard.

rkv // I actually don’t know how I feel about this

cct // Do you guys love Food52 as much as we do? An old college friend, Kenzi, is the Managing Editor there, and this profile on her is great!

rkv // Movie sequels that really just shouldn’t have been made

cct // Guys, Amy Schumer is the best…also I need to see Trainwreck asap, I’ve heard such great things!

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.
