Shake It Bay-Bee Shake It!

As part of our new way of eating for the new year, we’ll be doing our best to up the leafy greens in our daily diet and cut the meat at least one day a week. Given we’re HUGE fried chicken lovers (with a honkin’ side of steak, of course) combined with our busy schedules, this new found culinary plan has potential of being quite a challenge. But when it comes to our health we refuse to give up, so we considerRead more

Look At Things Differently…

Sometimes in life we can have the worst tunnel vision. We search high and low for ‘the best thing to ever happen to us” never realizing that more often than not, it was already there with us to begin with. Whether its something to excite us, or a person to love us, maybe a way to be entertained or inspired or a just something to break us out of our fuddy-duddy rut, it’s much easier to seek outwards rather than in.Read more

Hold the Sugar & Hide Your Jewels in Style!

To know us is to love our endless quest to find the dual purpose in everything, even items that we’d gladly deem well enough alone. Take the beautiful sugar bowls and apothecary jars of mornings passed. Uniquely stunning yet visually fresh, these bowls would hold sugar with pizzazz and became an anchor of style in every kitchen counter. But when faced with a few more baubles than would fit in our Secret Book Compartment or Stenciled Necklace Holder, we were forced to yet again, get creative.Read more

Moisten Your Locks Like Hula Honey Barbie

As the end of the year draws near we can’t help but notice the influence it’s had on us – mind, body and soul. The chill makes us unable to think about anything other than how cold it is, our skin is as dry and flaky as a biscuit and what the year’s worth of product  hasn’t wrecked in our hair the wind, rain and varying temperature has. We can eleviate one of those with the help of our newRead more

Fight SAD-ness with Food!

It may be the most wonderful time of the year but sometimes with all the hustle and bustle of the holidays it can truly feel like the worst. We’re more lethargic than normal, maybe even a bit achy at times and often just as gloomy as the stormy weather outside. So what’s up with all the holiday doom and gloom? Don’t worry – you’re not turning into Ebenezer Scrooge. You’re more than likely suffering from Seasonal Affective Disorder, or aptly referred toRead more

Got Something To Hide? BOOK IT!

Finding new ways to repurpose is as innate for us as breathing. In our minds, everything has a dual purpose. Every. Thing. So while out and about on a ‘hunting expedition’ at the local thrift store we came across a gem so amazing, so sultry, so blissfully perfect, we just HAD to snag it. What’s so sexy about a book you ask? Well dear kiddies, this isn’t just any book. It’s a GAME. We couldn’t believe our ‘luck’ when weRead more

An Ode To Moonrise Kingdom

“What kind of bird are you?”. Oh how we love Moonrise Kingdom. Wes Anderson knows how to make an incredible film that’s as stimulating to the eye as it is to the heart. If you haven’t watched it, we highly recommend it. If you have, you know what we’re talking about. For the later, we attempt to pay homage to this fine film with ways you bring a little Moonrise Kingdom whimsy into your lives without having to travel toRead more
