Our Favorite Instagram Accounts

We love Instagram, like love love Instagram. Although we’re a little bummed out about the new algorithm, we’re still obsessed with scrolling through and seeing gorgeous pictures of food, history, flowers & much, much more. We’re always in the mood to look at the curated posts of bloggers, restaurants & cafes, magazines, adventurers and friends. We’re into it all! And if you haven’t found us on instagram yet – you can see Gardenias & Mint here, Christa here & Regina here. xo


Tatte Bakery

This beautiful little bakery has been blowing up all over the Boston scene. The interior of the cafes are stunning, and the food & coffee equally impressive!

Happy Weekend!

Happy almost weekend, loves! Christa had her Connecticut Art Directors Club annual awards show last night and had a fantastic time mingling with the other CT Creatives. She’ll be stepping up as vice president next season, so big things ahead! What we’re both excited about this weekend is chillin chillin. Busy busy weeks this week, so lounging is on the top of the list this weekend. What are y’all up? xo G&M
