Guest Blogging for Rent the Runway!

First stop:  Staycation Central, Sister!

So, if you read this blog, you KNOW we have a soft spot in our hearts for Rent the Runway.  It’s like having access to your BFF’s designer closet, sans le designer price tag.  Anyhoo – they’ve just recently started expanding beyond their bread & buttah – fashion – to include a bit more lifestyle, and when they asked us to start contributing guest posts, we think a little pee might’ve come out.  Just kidding.

Not really.

Today, our very first guest post for them {and their very first guest post, ever!} went live on their blog.  It’s about the less costly / more relaxing cousin of the va-cation: the Stay-cation.  Check it out HERE.  And if you could share it, tweet it, sauté it, deep fry it, or shrimp creole it (but mostly just check it out & share it!), we would llllllllllove it!

Big hugs from us to you!

Memorial Day Must-Haves

I don’t know about you but this upcoming weekend is gonna be a freakin’ treat wrapped in a sparkly bow. After a loooong work week in which I felt like towards the end my brain was starting to melt, I’m wicked jazzed, yo.  I’m headed to Palm Springs for a couple days with the Hubs, then back for some BBQs and what-not. Just general laziness.  Below, a smattering of Memorial Day must-haves:

The most adorable, lightweight cotton shirts in an aloha print:


A too-cute-for-words bikini (or “babing suit” as a spry Karrie said as a child)


A great summer jam:

A shiny new book to ingest poolside:

A cool beverage, like this blueberry lavender mojito:


A relaxed, cottony jumpsuit cute enough for daytime but also great for nighttime.  Just pair with some sparkly accessories and a Palm Springs tan and voila!:


And last but not least… a partner in crime for the weekend:


Ahhhhhh… Aren’t you relaxed already?

Happy Memorial Day weekend everybody!
