#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. And our recent weekend in Breckenridge was no exception! Don’t get us wrong! We very happily grew up with four true seasons. We will ALWAYS welcome summer with open arms. And 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…

#LTcolorado // eating & drinking our way through breckenridge, colorado

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. As soon as we picked a spot in Breckenridge, Colorado, we started scheming. Immediately, our 2015 alpine adventure in Val d’Isere came to mind. 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. For one, Ashley was one million weeks pregnant. Skiing and bar-hopping were obv out for her. Plus, our chalet came with two amazing hosts who cooked all our meals and met every need. Why leave?!…

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

When it comes to travel, we have many varied areas of expertise. What cultural stuff can you skip in favor of eating your way through any given European capital city? We’re your girls. What IS the right amount of red wine to drink on an overnight flight so you don’t arrive looking like a zombie from the depths of hell? You call us. How do you maximize your time when navigating 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 sight-see . We’d rather just enjoy…

style spotter // palm springs, california

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. Currently on our minds? Palm Springs, California. 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. Right now, 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…
