About Us

gm_aboutus

Hi friends! This might seem a little crazy, but we realized that we never really introduced ourselves! We started the blog on a random Sunday in November, and our about page hasn’t changed since that first write up…oops. We figured it was time to finally let you all know about who we are! The first step was getting a good picture of us together – we’ve been friends since 3rd grade, so I’m sure we have some good oldies, but with us being in different cities (Boston and Hartford, to be exact) we don’t have as many newer pictures of us together (without a cocktail in hand…). When we had our girls weekend a little while ago, we made a point to stop and grab a quick pic of us, and for once in our lives, we actually liked it! So – Reg is wearing the jean jacket, Christa is wearing the mauve army jacket, and together we’re Gardenias & Mint!

Our dealio:

Growing up in Canton, CT, we knew we’d be friends forever since the tender age of 8, when Regina approached Christa to let her know that her velvet shirt with a gigantic daisy on it was awesome. Thanks to the alphabetical order of our last names, we were locker buddies all throughout junior high and high school. About three years ago after college, Reg moved to Boston and Christa to Hartford. This past fall we decided that we wanted to collaborate on something fun and creative together, and we’re so happy we did!

Some fun things about us:

xoxo, G&M

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 // To pass the time during her half-marathon, this woman instagramed selfies of herself and hot men for every mile. She’s sort of my hero.

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

cct // When my friends and I started getting into whiskey I had no idea there were so many options! Check out this break down, it’s super helpful!

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.
