weekend warriors // an introduction to berlin

In March, 44 days after Trump was sworn-in as president, we took a long weekend trip to Berlin. These might seem unrelated, but, I assure you, they’re not. On this particular weekend, visiting the former seat of the Third Reich and home to another paranoid fascist felt fitting. We arrived on the same day he accused Obama (over Twitter, of course) of wiretapping his phones. Two days later, he signed a new executive order. This time, he was reinstating the travel ban and suspending the refugee program in the US. Despite the fact that this was my first visit, and in light of everything stateside, I shied away from visiting the city’s most famous sites.…

style spotter // down under

As you may recall, it’s the time of year where we’re in full travel-planning mode, mapping out the rest of our year. It would seem we have our August plans sorted, though not Palm Springs, as we were recently considering! Oooh ahh mystery, stay tuned. Now, however, we have a new conundrum on the table: where oh where should we gather for our annual Friendsgiving feast? We recently realized that this year, we might be able to take a full week off for our favorite holiday! Should things fall together the way we’re hoping, we’re also thinking this is the year to go ALL. OUT. We’re talking long-haul flights for everyone and, seeing as we’ve…

weekend warriors // a weekend in milano

If you caught our recent post about exploring a city on a time crunch, or have been following @lazytravelers on Instagram since at least November, then you saw that I (fairly) recently visited Milan, er, Milano,  for the first time. To be totally honest, I had minimal expectations. Milan seems like a city that most people either love or hate. The ones who love it, love the nightlife, restaurant scene, and shopping. While this sounds fab, they’re not inherently baby-friendly activities, so Milano was temporarily on the backburner. But when an opportunity presents itself to visit a new city, who am I to decline? So, with a week’s notice, we were on our way to…

#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…
