#LTgreekweek // the lazy girls’ guide to off-season dining in mykonos

As you may know, we’re long-time fans of traveling during the off-season. The pace is slower, the locals are friendlier, and best of all, the prices are lower. Now that one of us is traveling with a baby, shoulder season travel is more appealing than ever — especially when you’re visiting a destination that’s also known as one of Greece’s top party islands. While Mykonos and its club scene go hand-in-hand, visiting in October meant that most places were starting to close down for the year. Fortunately, friends and readers who know the island well knew just where to send us (admittedly not club goers, even in our younger years), and we spent our week…

#LTgreekweek // one week in mykonos with @mygreekvilla

Somehow, the end of 2016 escaped us. Maybe we were just as ready for it to be over as everyone else, but somehow, the last four months of the year flew by faster than we could say, “Is it 2017 yet?!?!” JK, we said that sentence a LOT. Even so, we can’t hate on 2016 that much — there was a lot of good, too, and we’ve decided that that’s what we want to focus on. So, without further ado, let’s talk about one of our very best trips of last year… A girls’ week away at My Greek-Villa‘s beautiful Villa Ellis in Mykonos! We had a great time with our husbands during our week-long…

style spotter: havana, cuba

It should come as no surprise that we’re more than a little obsessed with Christmas here at LT HQ. If you follow us on Instagram, then you’ve probably noticed the recent onslaught of all things festive. (And if you don’t follow us on Instagram, then why the hell not?!). But, once the fairy dust has settled and all our ornaments are back in their boxes, we hit a SEVERE slump. It’s not long before we’re aching for longer days and warmer weather, and we usually try to combat this with some early spring travel to a beachy destination. Though we have a few things in mind for 2017, there’s one place that has long been…

#LTportugal // three nights in porto

Bear with us for a moment while we ask you to reach back into the far corner of your memory and remember approximately four months ago when we went to Portugal. Seems like a distant dream, right?? We spent a full week in Northern Portugal, drinking wine and exploring the Douro Valley, and bookended it all with a little preview of one of our new favorite cities: Porto. Though we hardly scratched the surface on all of the amazing restaurants, cafes and bars the city has to offer, we sure made a valiant effort. With two days and three nights, we crossed the city on foot, winding up and down the many, many hills, refueling…

style spotter: the lazy travelers’ 2016 holiday gift guide + giveaway [NOW CLOSED]

***This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to our winners!*** It’s that time of year again! That wonderful, wonderful time when cookie calories don’t count, the air feels crisp and cool and smells slightly of ember, and best of all, it’s perfectly acceptable social behavior to lock yourself inside, pile on the blankets, and watch The Grinch Who Stole Christmas on repeat. (We’re ignoring America’s actual Grinch(es), and focusing only on the good we and those around us are doing. In the spirit of the holidays, we strongly recommend you do the same.) Because it’s important to reward good behavior, we’re rounding up a list of things we’re giving to our nearest and dearest this holiday…
