a weekend away and spring break

we made frequent trips to dunkin donuts because, unfortunately, we have very few around home.

the weather was beautiful despite some winds across the beach.

we took a few breaks from the beach to work on some school work.

the helicopter flew over at just the right time making for the coolest accidental photo.

jane’s trip got us thinking about spring break, which is, thankfully, right around the corner. here are some internet finds that have got us excited for break.

spring break– photography

we had an awesome spring break in naples, florida. although we don’t have too much to share other than we spent more time on the beach than we should have, we do have some cool pictures! so here’s our break…in pictures.

warm weather beauty essentials

spring is just around the corner for most and this can mean coming out of our long, winter hibernation of dry skin and smoky eyes every weekend. to help transition your look from winter to summer, we have some spring beauty essentials for you to check out tonight.

waterproof mascara

for having great lashes during spring showers, at the pool or even at beach, try maybelline great lash or the chanel inimitable waterproof mascara

spf base bb cream

its important to make sure to protect our faces from the sun’s harmful uv rays, so we suggest maybelline dream fresh bb cream spf 30 or the bobbi brown spf 35 bb cream

sea salt spray

to achieve natural looking, beachy waves at any time and to create the perfectly messy spring and summer hair, check out not your mother’s beach babe texturizing spray or the lush sea spray

fun nails

start subtle with the essie meet me by the alter, and then go bold with fifth avenue by essie
