#LTcolorado // the lazy girls’ guide to skiing & snowshoeing

It is incredibly rare that we travel somewhere and voluntarily do something that requires physical exertion. Surprising, we know. However, there are exceptions to every rule, and as such, we’d like to make a case for winter sports: most specifically, skiing & snowshoeing. They are, arguably, the perfect lazy girls’ athletic activity of choice. Think about it! First of all, the cold temps demand pure coziness before and after. Second of all, no other sport has an attached cool-down activity that actively encourages you to booze it up. Have you ever heard of après-jog or après-spin??? We didn’t think so, SoulCycle. Après-ski, however, is basically the main reason we even go skiing. Plus, ice skating, sledding,…

#LTcolorado // a weekend in breckenridge with @InvitedHome

As you may have guessed over the years, there’s little we love more than bundling up and going on a snowy adventure somewhere mountainous. Don’t get us wrong, we very happily grew up with four true seasons, and will always welcome summer with open arms. When it comes to claiming our homebase, we are city girls, through and through. But there’s just something about wide open spaces, and we will always have a soft spot for cozy alpine escapes, ideally full of red wine. This is why, when InvitedHome reached out to us about their portfolio of luxury properties in beautiful destinations, we didn’t have to browse long before settling on a ski weekend in…

#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…
