Boho Picnic

gm_BohoPicnic_3

I’m on a plane to LAX for my Designer Vaca trip in Palm Springs!! SO excited! Keep an eye out on my instagram for pics from PS & Joshua Tree 🙂

Anyway, so when my friend Brittany and I were browsing Brimfield this year, we stumbled upon one of the most beautiful tents we’d seen all day – a floor to ceiling, wall to wall tent full of Kantha quilts. The price was right and we both found throws we fell in love with. The company is String Theory, and they had the most gorgeous blankets we had ever seen! (Ps they sell to Anthropologie to resell!). We each bought one and started day dreaming about how we wanted to use them – at home, for picnics, at the beach, on our beds, etc. and since the weather has been perfectly fall these past few weeks we figured it was time to give picnic-ing with our new blankets a try!

Happy Weekend!

Hello dearies — what’s everyone up to this weekend? Christa and I have been feeling pretty tangled in a million different webs these days, and can’t help but look forward to catching on up doing things that settle us back into ourselves. I personally would love to go to yoga and perhaps bake something, two things that always help me in feeling centered and grounded. Hope you all have beautiful weekends, see you on Monday!

cct // We as bloggers really know this is true about Instagram & photography in general, but it’s always nice to remind ourselves that there are some days that you can fake it, and some days that it’s ok that you can’t (let’s just live in the moment a little more, right?).

rkv // The upcoming sweater weather also calls for a new fall book list, yay!

cct // I’m traveling to California for 6 days in early October and encountering 2 extremes – blog hang out at the Ace Hotel, and hiking in Joshua Tree – so I am welcoming these tips & tricks on packing a suitcase well. Btw, I’m only taking a carry on rolling suitcase and a tote – eek!

rkv // Oh right, Halloween is also around the corner, and this is adorable

cct // I’m always interested in seeing how other bloggers do their hair! I’ve been eying a curling wand vs a clamping curling iron, and I think it’s time! Also the tip of adding a little pomade to your ends is genius.

rkv // Picnic season ain’t over, and I love this DIY

cct // Yeah girl, yeah – why perfect abs aren’t me

rkv // Emily Henderson’s home line from Target has finally been released, and it’s everything I dreamed it would be 🙂

Labor Day Weekend Fun

With Labor Day right around the corner, we found it only fitting to fill your minds with some ideas on how to spend your weekend! We’re really looking forward for taking an extra day for ourselves while we embrace the remainder of the warm weather!

// 01. Backyard BBQ
An extra day off is music to our Mon-Friday-workin ears! If the weather is nice, round up those friends of yours and sit outside, light the grill and eats lots and lots of chips! Extra points if you can whip together a Pinterest worthy cocktail like above – cheers!

//02. Day Trippin’
The best part about living in New England is the easy access to wonderful places within driving distance. An extra day off can extend any weekend trip into something a little more! Check out the dunes on Block Island, explore the mansions in Newport, or head to the woods – you’ve got a whole extra day, use it!

//03. Bike Ride
Sometimes a quaint little bike ride is all you need to make your extra time off that much better. In Boston and CT we’re big fans of the Charles River and Farmington River Trail. Where you guys like to cycle around?

//04. Movie Day
With the weather as unpredictable as it is round these parts, we sort of always need a plan b. A movie day with delicious treats sounds like just the thing! Make yourself a little spread and just let yourself be shamelessly lazy!

//05. Picnic
Picnic in the park anyone? Don’t mind if I do! A chilled glass of white and a caprese sandwich with a book sounds like an extremely pleasant way to spend these final few weekends of warmth. Relax and live it up!
