#LTcolorado // eating & drinking our way through breckenridge

When we realized that, thanks to InvitedHome, a snowy ski escapade to the Rockies was going to kick off our 2017 travels, we were more than a little excited. Immediately, our 2015 alpine adventure in Val d’Isere came to mind, and visions of a weekend full of pjs and red wine danced in our heads. As you may recall from that trip, we didn’t really do too much. Ashley was one million weeks pregnant, so skiing and drinking were out for her, and our chalet came with two amazing hosts who cooked us all our meals and made sure every need was met. Why leave?! This time, we found ourselves at Columbine Rock Lodge —…

the lazy girls’ guide to navigating a new city in a time crunch

When it comes to travel, we consider ourselves to have many varied areas of expertise. Need to know what cultural stuff you can skip in favor of eating your way through any given European capital city? We’re your girls. Wondering what IS the right amount of red wine to drink on an overnight flight so you don’t arrive looking like a zombie straight out of the depths of hell? You call us. Maximizing your time in a new city, cramming in as much wonder as you possibly can in 18 hours or less? Ehhhh…. that is just not our style. In news that will shock no one, we don’t really like to feel pressure to…

style spotter // palm springs

Ahh springtime. That glorious season full of pastels & new blooms & the promise of warmer days. Coincidentally, it’s also when we start getting serious about summer vaca. We admit, our joint plans this year are up in the air. We vowed in Spain and Portugal to always meet in August for a week of luxury, but we have no idea when or where or how this year. Currently, our minds are wandering west. Though we successfully explored NorCal together two years ago, a return to the West Coast is in the cards and lately, we’ve been perusing Palm Spring vacation rentals. Though Carolyn is always happy to make the hop across the pond for…

the lazy girl’s guide to traveling with a baby // 0-12 months

I promise not to bore you with all the mom cliches, but earlier this year, my little lazy baby turned one. I can’t believe how quickly a year went, so much has happened, etc., etc. Instead, I’ll bore you with something else: unsolicited advice about something I’m now mildly familiar with, and as such, am an expert. There’s a whole chapter about it in the manual they give you at new parent orientation. Today’s topic? Margot’s first flight was when she was just over seven weeks old, and since then, she’s been across the Atlantic on four roundtrip flights, visited nine countries, and traversed more than a dozen cities. We’ve taken her on trains and planes and road trips, and have a line-up of…

#LTfriendsgiving // the lazy girl’s guide to celebrating holidays abroad

Having been best friends for almost twenty years (!), we’ve developed quite a few Lazy Travelers’ traditions, but our absolute favorite has to be our annual #LTfriendsgiving. Since our time in New York, we’ve made Thanksgiving together a yearly event, and in 2013, we took it on the road to Ashley and Jeff’s cottage in Fontainebleau, France. Since then, we’ve carved the turkey in Henley-on-Thames, England in 2014, Val d’Isère, France in 2015, and this past November, Montreal, Canada. [photo via instagram] Though we’ve become masters at taking the festivities on the road, we originally found it a bit tough to try and recreate the magic of one of our favorite holidays without our usual resources. Now in our fourth year abroad, we’ve put…
