Have Dreamy Weekend!

Finally Friday! I, for one, could not be more excited. It has been a long week! This weekend will be nice because I'm planning to do some home improvements with Karina and work a bit with Claudia on our little side project. And also... my month of sobriety is over! For those of you who didn't know, I was challenging myself to a Sober September and I'm proud to say I made it without one drop of alcohol. I have a lot to say about this, which I think will be a more dedicated post next week because I really do want to share my experience with you.

So in the meantime, have a lovely weekend! And now some fun links from the interwebs.

Hovering art directors. 

How to tie your man's bow tie. 

Ruth Reichl's end of summer no-fuss tart. 

Cutest tea set ever. 

Your new favorite Olsen

Confetti System's cool paper flowers are easy to love.

A circular kitchen is pretty brilliant. 

I wish these wedding dresses were appropriate to wear on all occasions.

Have a great weekend everyone!

DIY Wedding Cakes

Ok, so it's no secret that I absolutely love baking! If I had all the time in the world, I think I would try to bake something new everyday. So far my specialties include blueberry pies, banana walnut bread, and birthday cupcakes. But the next treat I want to challenge myself to is... drumroll please... a wedding cake!

Do I know anyone getting married anytime soon? I can't think of anyone I'm close to enough to to trust me with such an enormous task. Maybe I should start practicing with some of the fun ideas floating on Pinterest (my new obsession!) What do you guys think? Would you ever let a friend/amateur baker take up the challenge of baking your cake for your very special day?

Speaking of wedding cakes, I found this pretty hilarious: wedding cakes inspired by works of art! I think my fave is the first one.

Back to Blogging

Hello, dear readers! We are so incredibly sorry for neglecting you and our lil' ol' blog here. Somehow, right as summer ended, a ton of work got thrown our way and the three of us have been busy, busy, busy! Claudia and I are working on a very big and exciting project (a film! more details soon!) and Karina has been trotting across the globe (Paris! LA! San Francisco!)

Things are actually about to get even more crazy for us, but we don't want our work to stop us from doing what we love, and that is blogging of course. So despite our other projects, we promise you we will be back in full blogging mode starting this week! (I personally need the pressure of saying this to you because I hate to let people down! You can call it middle-child-people-pleasing syndrome.)

So all that said... how are you all doing lately? We've missed you! ♥

Vanessa Bruno: LØV

Here's a little treat for your Wednesday morning! The new lookbook for Vanessa Bruno (starring Kate Bosworth) is probably one of the best I've seen yet. Once again, this epic visual stunner was directed by Stephanie Di Gusto, and will literally make your jaw drop. The music, the shots, the clothing...it's perfection. Enjoy ♥

Have a Dreamy Weekend!

Hello lovelies! It's Friday, finally. Any great plans for the weekend? I just bought myself a voucher over on Gilt City (my new obsession!) for one month of unlimited yoga at Yoga Vida. Now let me be clear here, I am definitely not a yogi. I have done it many times, but have never stuck with it consistently. My favorite workouts are definitely more cardio based, such as spinning and kickboxing. However, since I left my last job last year, with it went my discounted gym rate. So for the past year, I have to admit that I have not had any real exercise outside of walking back and forth to work everyday (give me some credit here, in total it's four miles back and forth!) But to be honest, it's definitely taken it's toll on me.

So because I was getting a great deal on Gilt City, I figured I would give yoga another shot. And I also think it's a great time to do it now because did I mention I am not drinking this month? I'm calling it Sober September and let me tell ya - nine days in and I am surprisingly doing awesome. The first weekend was the absolute worst because it was Labor Day weekend and there was a ton of stuff going on, including the fact that one of my bff's was in town from LA. But after managing to be on good behavior that weekend, it's all downhill from here. The perks of not drinking? My sleep is much better, and my wallet is feeling good. So in the spirit of cleansing, I am really excited about picking up yoga this month. Any tips for a yoga newbie?

And now, the fun Friday links you've been waiting for!

Funny math.

Happy weekend, everyone! ♥

Paris: Part I

Good news, guys! I made it to Paris over the weekend. :) And I'm so glad I did. I promise to share photos very soon (it's been a whirlwind upon returning) but until then, can I share that I have a newfound respect for eating cheese and bread? It's almost all I ate in Paris, and I didn't even grow tired of it. And it's best when paired with a good glass of wine.

Also, I had a chance to stop by an amazing market called Le Marche des Enfants Rouges, and the man pictured above made me the most amazing crepe I've had in my life, topped with butter and lemon zest. I could eat one right now! He reminded me of Gerard Depardieu, which almost sparked a giggle fit ala Anderson Cooper. :)
And lastly, I bought myself a pair of Bensimons (sort of like the French version of Converse), and I have been wearing them non-stop. All in all, a great trip worth being on the edge of my seat for:)

Keep a lookout for Part II!

Paris, Je T'aime

If all goes as scheduled, I will be in Paris this weekend. ♥ Fingers and toes crossed that Delta will kindly let me on!
