April Showers

We didn't let a little bit of gloom and drizzle dampen our adventurous spirits over the weekend. Our breaths were taken away as we approached this empty field and were greeted by a still and quiet beauty. We romped around undisturbed until we couldn't risk our cameras getting any wetter and our boots any muddier.

Bien Fait

After a morning of having our plans thwarted, we couldn't think of a better way to spend the afternoon than in cozy, soft basics. We found ourselves combing the back alleys of Pasadena again and ended up in a construction zone in our usual chase of the sunset. Being the rebels that we are, we crossed the line (literally) and were undisturbed while trying to capture the beautiful light that was flooding in through the trees and unfinished buildings.

The Little Things

After our exciting and adventurous trips to Palm Springs and Disneyland, we thought we'd take it easy to wind down our spring vacation. We spent the weekend sleeping in to enjoy a few more moments of snuggling underneath the covers. When we finally got ourselves out of bed, we headed to Grand Central Market to grab brunch and avoided the hype of Egg Slut to discover a new favorite spot: Belcampo Meat Co, and a new love for broccolini. At the market, we also picked up the biggest sunflowers because we wanted to bring a bit of sunshine home and we're a sucker for cute packaging. We played tourist in our own town for the afternoon and were up to our usual tricks in discovering new alleys to romp around after filling up on ahi poke nachos. Sometimes the littlest things in life can truly bring you the most happiness.

Explosions in the Sky

Fellow Type As would agree that perfection always seems to be the destination. We’re constantly and obsessively trying to create those perfect moments with detailed itineraries and strategic packing in anticipation of the worst. Or better yet, these perfect moments happen and we ruin them by frantically trying to capture them as they occur so that ironically we can remember them instead of truly enjoying them. These idiosyncrasies are especially enhanced during our vacations. Our two day adventure to Disneyland was no different. We were prepared to combat the chilly evenings with our Rodarte hoodies, the overuse of our phones with our power packs, and the struggles for achieving the perfect selfie with our selfie stick and bluetooth remote. What we weren’t prepared for was the most magical ending to our spring break.

Super Rich Kids

We thought we'd get a jumpstart on festival season with a quick getaway to Palm Springs for a friend's birthday. What better way to forget the woes of getting older with hours spent lounging at the pool and sipping maybe one too many mojitos. In between playing with beach balls and rocking to hot cougars singing our favorite tunes, we were able to steal away a few minutes to explore the colorful Saguaro Hotel. While taking a quick detour to the bathroom, we found an empty area take in all the bright colors, palm trees, and sunshine.
