daily summer posts coming your way & lake harriet!

hi, all! sorry for our lack of posts, we have been busy with graduation and sooo many grad parties! hope everyone is well.

we wanted to let you know that we plan on doing daily posts this summer, like last summer, and that we have so much fun coming! we have been busy coordinating with different companies and brainstorming fun ways to work with them.

i, laura, wanted to share some photos of lake harriet (in minneapolis) that i took the other night! for those of you that haven’t gone and that live in the area, i would definitely recommend that you come enjoy the lake soon! it’s a great place to run, walk, fish, swim, paddle board, enjoy concerts, and eat at too!

this is the rose garden, a beautiful, large park-like space with a bunch of flowers and fountains. it’s right across the lake on the east side.

a weekend away and spring break

over president’s day weekend, jane spent a weekend in the sun in naples, florida. she enjoyed laying by the beach, pool, and the warm weather. here are some pictures from her vsco.

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

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.

change is good.

everyone knows that april showers and may flowers means spring cleaning, but if your like us and don’t want to or feel the need to dust every corner of your house, try out some of the ways we like to clean and change up our routine in the spring.

deco

switch out pictures in your picture frames with something new, happy, and something that reminds you of summer because it is oh so close.

take the big, fuzzy blanket off your bed just in time for the heat to be turned off inside and maybe replace it with a light throw like this one.

lifestyle 

change up your run route or workout.

new music! follow us at janeandlaura and spotify to see what we are listening to or check out our post on sawyer federicks .

clear your entire phone photo stream onto a laptop or hardrive. trust us, it feels good.

beauty

no more dark eye makeup, try something light and neutral like this eye shadow pallet.

try a new lipstick shade (like this or this)- change can be fun!

fashion

trend alert: collars are all over the runway this spring, try this or this and see what all the hype is about here.

here comes the sun! pull out some fun shades like these or these for the changing weather.
