Mushrooms. Daisies. Swirls. Mod. Pops of color. What decade do these make you think of? Our city's art museum hosts an annual fundraiser that helps restore pieces of art in its permanent collection. They ask a handful of creatives to create a 'living tableau' for guests to interact with, and take some fun photos. We … Continue reading Groovy Baby
Polished to Perfection
We are mirror image twins. That means one of us is left handed, the other right handed. Our hair parts on opposite sides. In high school, one was the cheerleader, the other the artsy girl who hid in her room reading VC Andrews. Our tastes in decor are opposite: cozy British chic to more is … Continue reading Polished to Perfection
A very merry unbirthday!
Maybe it's because our high school senior photos were less than stellar (hint: don't choose a photographer just because they offer a twin discount), or maybe it's because we wanted to have an excuse to get dressed up and have a fancy tea party. Whatever the reason is, it doesn't matter. We do recommend, … Continue reading A very merry unbirthday!
Birth of Venus
The first time I remember seeing the depiction of Venus de Milo was in the movie "The Adventures of Baron Munchausen". It left such an impression that when I saw the painting "The Birth of Venus" by Botticelli, I was like, hey! It's like that scene from the movie! (Everything always comes back to the … Continue reading Birth of Venus
A few years ago, I decided I wanted to start yoga. So I bought an old paperback from the 1970s, called Richard Hittlemans Yoga: 28 Day Exercise Plan. It...is definitely from a bygone era. As in, entire chapters devoted to the housewife and her daily chores. But it was a great self-paced introduction, and I … Continue reading Namaste, Mfers
Good Health: The Ultimate Luxury
Every month this year, I'm focusing on a specific theme of gratitude. In January, it was hygge. In February, it was women artists I admire, and in March it was books that impacted me. April will be on ways I am able to take care of myself. Note: I am unhealthy. I eat poorly, I … Continue reading Good Health: The Ultimate Luxury

Everything is Better with CONFETTI
Our friend Whitney threw the most colorful and fun wedding celebration. The groomsmen had pompom boutonnieres, we tossed dried herbs and jingled bells as the new couple made their way to their chariot. The reception had vintage planters filled with colorful blooms, and giant confetti-filled balloons. Here are a few photos from the florists behind … Continue reading Everything is Better with CONFETTI
Mood Board: Winter is Going
Here in SWMO, the sun is starting to shine, the days are getting longer, the weather just a bit warmer. With the arrival of Spring, we are finally saying goodbye to winter. But I won't lie. I love winter, and this one was particularly cozy. Full of family, nights by the fire, strong cocktails and … Continue reading Mood Board: Winter is Going
Some women are blessed with long, dark, beautiful lashes. The kind that get in the way of their sunglasses, and trap flies. We are not those ladies. Both of us are eager to try eyelash extensions, but the price tag is a bit steep for us to maintain. Until we can save some money, we've … Continue reading Eyelash Envy
