Staying Hydrated with Olay's Red Jar

We travel a lot! If you’ve ever traveled far from home, then you’ll know the dread that comes with realizing you’re miles away from your medicine cabinet and your skin regimen isn’t working. It can be the change of climate, lack of sleep, pollution, dehydration, you name it - your skin suffers! BUT WAIT! It doesn’t have to be like that.

5 things to do in Collioure, a seaside village in the south of France

Some vacations take it out of you. You know those types?? And other ones do the opposite, they remind you of what matters and they energize you and they recalibrate your perspectives. Our week in Collioure was that second type of vacation, one of the really good ones.

We’ve been neglecting something…

It’s summer in like a week and we’re sitting here thinking… are we ready? Summer is arguably the best season, but it can be a lot of work to make sure you’re ready when it hits. Did Crossfit do what is was supposed to? How many vacation days do we have left? Did we book a rental car yet for that family trip in July? You know the drill.

The Final Countdown: March 8

We rented our U-Haul for pick up this AM, still mourning the loss of our big break with toyota, and along with the help of some strong friends, we managed to get all of the plants to the venue. It actually turned out to be a pretty chill day. Everything is mostly taken care of at this point, and we enjoyed some brunch with Corey's family.

The Final Countdown: March 7

As promised, we're almost there. Here's our quick updates

It's definitely going to rain on the wedding day... we've lost all hope! So we're going to buy some umbrellas and blankets as well as coordinate possibly a tent with the venue! Corey got his haircut, and Cristian will be soon to follow. Family is starting to arrive and tomorrow we're moving the plants to the venue (we rented a U-Haul)! Also, the Sam's Club plants arrived.

Piecing It Together

We’re getting pretty close to the big day! EEK! Corey’s mom arrives this weekend to help with some of the last minute details, but otherwise we think we’re in a pretty good place. Corey finalized the Jackson Shrub order (we changed our mind on some things.. oops!) and we’re at the point where everything is ordered. Fingers crossed for the weather on March 10th because the 2 week forecast thing says it’s cold and rainy…

Saying "I Do" To Some Plants

We’re officially a month out from the wedding! OMG can’t believe it! It’s so crazy, etc. etc. etc! But really, can you beweave it?! We have a long laundry list of things to do however there’s one very important thing we haven’t done yet… PLANTS!

5 Tips for Designing With Your Lover

Relationships can have their ups and downs. We know after 8 years of living, traveling, breathing, existing together that they involve a lot of different commitments to keep everything progressing forward. Now we ain't no relationship experts, so we won't be touting that sort of advice. However, we do feel that often times there is one thing that people don't talk about that often. Moving in with someone.

A Hike Gone Accidental

Our friend Max really wanted to go hike San Gabriel with us this weekend - which, you really don't need to ask twice with us! Well... that's a half lie, leaving West Hollywood seems to be the last thing we ever want to do. Not for any reason in particular, we're just lazy. We digress.

We're Poly with Indochino

Ok, maybe we’re not at that point in our relationship, but we did a little Black Friday shopping (on Sunday) for some wedding suits. At this point, as you know, we’ve been feeling a bit defeated by the suit industry. Cut to us walking into the Beverly Hills showroom of Indochino  and being reborn as two wedding suit aficionado angel babies.

Profesh Wine Tasters... Drinkers

It’s official. We "tasted" wine and now we’re experts. That’s a lie. We still know nothing about wine.

Basically, we’re DIY’ing the rehearsal dinner (Re: 15K quote from the LA restaurant Eveleigh) and part of that process entails choosing wine for 50 people to enjoy for 4 hours.

There She Blows AKA We Sent The Invites

It's insane that we're at the point where invites are already going out! Thankfully the cardshop in Venice, remember the one where the cheapest they could do for invites was 1k, gave us their handy dandy invite guide! It told us to mail out invitations roughly 2-3 months before the date of the wedding.

We Collect Paper To Organize

Call us old school, but printing and hoarding wedding related paper is amazing! Our love of this possibly being a byproduct of Corey’s days planning events at Columbia’s Graduate School of Journalism and/or the tutelage his boss, the queen of events, now our wedding officiant, Irena, plan many domestic and international events!
