lake lovin’

i, laura, spent last night enjoying lake minnetonka after a busy day at work.  there’s something about the water that just totally calms me, it’s magical. i am loving summer and never want it to leave.  so thankful for fun family and friends that make nights like last night so fun and so special.

happy weekend, pals- hope you find some time to get out and enjoy the weather!

summer thoughts

it’s that time of year again where all we can think about while sitting in class is the beautiful weather and the adventures we have in store for these next few months. we are excitedly anticipating summer and have numerous fun plans in the works.

this summer we challenge you to join us in:

going to concerts!

getting more sleep

daily journaling

finding a good book

spending time outside everyday

wearing less makeup

working a job you love

but before we get to enjoy the sun, we have a few weeks left of spring. but, as spring comes to an end, it’s fun to reflect on what we’ve been up to recently. as you may have read here , laura turned 17! happy (late) birthday laura, don’t let 17 be any less amazing than 16 and keep being you! also, we both got to get dressed up a few different times for various occasions and found these shoes and these shoes perfect additions to our spring closets.

we hope to have another summer playlist post out soon but for now enjoy laura’s “non-bummer summer” jams here.

lastly, we are excited to announce our special commitment to this corner of the web for the summer and that we will be doing daily [weekday] posts on everything from what we wore to what did each day. we hope you continue to follow along!


dear santa…

today we are sharing our christmas wish lists! these fun and practical internet finds have caught our eye this holiday season, enjoy!

treat yoself !

…everyone deserves a little treat every once in a while so, spend some money on something to brighten you day!

here are our recommendations:

spotify premium- start with the free trial, you will never want to go back to the version with ads. spotify premium is great because you can download playlists offline and listen to them anywhere, without interruption.

madewell jewelry- we love madewell’s simple gold earrings, rings, necklaces, and bracelets.  they are so easy to pair with everyday outfits and will stay in great condition.

artifact uprising prints- print your photography through artifact uprising! they use thick, recycled paper that you can easily display. use their app that is directly linked to vsco for easy downloading!

the birchbox- the greatest gift we have ever received!! who doesn’t love monthly care packages of product samples? try it for a few months because happy mail is the best.

642 things to write about- fuel your creative side with this big book of writing prompts and ideas! if you enjoy writing and want some extra inspiration, we highly recommend this book.

sometimes it’s just the little things, ya know?

our picks of fall kicks

we are loving fall weather and especially fall fashion! it’s such a great season because you can easily wear flats, boots, sandals, and tennis shoes.

here are a few of our favorites if you’re looking for something new this season:

we are very thankful for such an amazing summer. thank you to all who followed along or made our summers unforgettable!

chipotle cultivate festival

on saturday, our last day of summer unfortunately, we went to the chipotle cultivate festival. for those of you who don’t know about this awesome event, it is a free festival with plenty of free samples (anything from burts bee’s to chips and guac!), concerts, chef demos, and, for purchase, chipotle tacos/burritos all around. we went with a group of friends and ran into many more friends. while there, we had our share of tacos and went to hippo campus, x ambassadors, atlas genius, and wanted to go to walk the moon (for the second time!), but they had to cancel due to bad weather. on the way home we picked a few standout, favorite songs from day. these were hippo campus’ south, x ambassdor’s renegades and unsteady and gorgeous, and atlas genius’ a perfect end and trojans. even though we were hoping to see wtm, we had an amazing day, the best end to summer, so many memories, and will certainly be in attendance for years to come. here are a few pictures (vsco of course) of this incredible day.

welcome, white!

last week i (laura) woke up with an idea- let’s paint my room white! i had been thinking about changing the blue walls for a few weeks and wanted to get it done before school starts, because everything not related to academics never seems to get done during the year. i really wanted to start the new year with some change- i’m very happy with the finished product! i decided on white to make the frames on my walls pop and also to match my doors, bed, desk, and armoire.

i got quite messy!
