Moment for Me

July 26, 2013

If you know the two of us, or follow us on Instagram, you know that we are lovers of sweet treats. And although we don’t discriminate, we both really love ice cream. Confession: there are 7 different kinds in our freezer right this minute #notlying. When Häagen-Dazs (you know, the legendary ice cream makers) reached out to us about their “Moment for Me” campaign we were so intrigued… The program is about inspiring fans to take time out of our day to enjoy the moments that mean most to you.

If you know the two of us, or follow us on Instagram, you know that we are lovers of sweet treats. And although we don’t discriminate, we both really love ice cream. Confession: there are 7 different kinds in our freezer right this minute #notlying. When Häagen-Dazs (you know, the legendary ice cream makers) reached out to us about their “Moment for Me” campaign we were so intrigued… The program is about inspiring fans to take time out of our day to enjoy the moments that mean most to you. What perfect timing for us to push pause, to really think about slowing down, and enjoying the things that make us truly happy. Whether it’s indulging in Häagen-Dazs Orchard Peach Sorbet or making a conscious effort to be outside more, we’re sharing our moments and we hope it will inspire you to seek and share your personal cherished moments!

Sally’s moments this month: enjoying fresh blooms from my birthday; organizing memories in the form of the Polaroid’s I’ve taken the past several months; getting outside the city to enjoy quite lakes with friends; eating ice cream and sobet right out of the carton (because sometimes life is too short to worry about dishes); changing up my workout routine (I’m a Fly Wheel addict) by taking morning walks with friends;

Molly’s moments this month: closing the computer and opting for pool time; indulging in sweets while making an effort to practice Pilates more often; spending long, quality time with friends; smiling constantly at a whimsical iPhone case (it’s the happiest lobster, I can’t help it); eating as much fresh summer fruit as possible; reading tons (combination of novels and non-fiction).

P.S. Because we know people will ask, our cowhide chair cushions are the work of our talented friend Julia Laing!

Wanted.

Friday, Friday, Friday!! I think we’ve mentioned before that Molly and I are moving into a new apartment next month (?) and it is literally all we think about.  We are dying to get out of our current apartment and there is something about the idea of starting fresh and de-cluttering that sounds so nice right now.  I’m pretty sure we talk about it every.single.day.  Our new place is wayyy nicer with hardwood floors, etc so its really no wonder that we are dreaming about it.  This weeks wanted post has a whole lotta home items that I can’t get…

This sweater that I picked up at Madewell earlier in the summer has definitely been one of my favorite purchases this summer.  And although I don’t get to wear it too often with our weather here, I know I can wear it into fall and it has been my favorite thing to throw on when its a rainy day and a touch cooler here.  It also makes the perfect piece to travel in.  I have a thing for pairing long sleeves with shorts in the summer months most especially these J.Crew boy shirts which are so, so comfy.  I have…

Some Sales + Steals

Growing up, a back to school trip to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has always been a tradition in our family.  I still to this day remember making the trip to get our shiny new school shoes. All these years later and the sale is just as good as ever. If not better. We couldn’t help but include our picks for this weeks sales and steals post. There are just so.many good finds.  Our favorites?  The Sultra Bombshell which we both swear by for our curled/wavy hair.  It’s an unbelievably good deal too.

All these years later and the sale is just as good as ever. If not better. We couldn’t help but include our picks for this weeks sales and steals post. There are just so.many good finds.  Our favorites?  The Sultra Bombshell which we both swear by for our curled/wavy hair.  It’s an unbelievably good deal too. Also scoping out Natori’s feather bras – they’re my favorite (only) bra that I own and I wouldn’t mind investing in a few more while the price is so good.  Shoes are always a win at the sale and I am lusting for a pair of Stuart Weitzman’s boots.  I know they would make for a great investment and I would wear them like crazy. Love me a good Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!  Hope you all have a happy Wednesday – I’m spending mine in jury duty (boo) and then we have dinner with a sweet friend tonight…

“He’s got her looks”

July 24, 2013

You all heard about the tiny Prince, right? I know it’s not fresh news but I wanted to commemorate the historic event (birth?) with a post—the photos of Will and Kate leaving the hospital with their new baby boy were just too sweet to pass up. Yes, Kate is darling in her baby blue Jenny Packham polka dot dress and she looks equal parts exhausted and happy. How can you look at those photos and not smile… I swear I can feel their happiness and love through my computer screen. Tender moments. So happy for them. P.S. Funny that the Royal…

P.S. Funny that the Royal couple emerged a day after the bebe’s birth (same day as Sally!) and we are still waiting to see glimpses of Kim + North West. British class > Hollywood publicity stunts. So typical you can’t help but laugh…
