10 Things We’re Loving For April

10 things we're loving for april

From spring blooms to micellar cleaning water, here’s 10 things we’re loving for April:

1. Liven up a pair of strappy shoes with ombre tassels. But why stop at just shoes? Add tassels to an everyday tote too like this one from Zara.

2. Mid-April is our favorite time at Winterthur to enjoy the spring blooms along the March Bank and Magnolia Bend.

3. Check out the Helen Kaminski Trunk Show at Houppette Thursday, April 16th. Shop beautiful hats just in time for steeple chase season.

4. As soon as the weather starts to warm, we crave homemade ice cream from Woodside Farm Creamery.

5. This iPhone strap case can hold all your necessities in one place. It makes for a great travel or gym item.

6. We like to believe that accomplishing a DIY boosts your mood and builds your confidence that’s why these Ikea hacks from Brit + Co. are a perfect spring project.

7. A great way to support Earth Day (April 22) this year is by donating a tree. The Canopy Project is a great organization that has planted over 1.5 million trees in just three years.

8. Celebrate spring with Ashley Austin, Chantilly Blue, and No. 109 for treats, discounts and more on Thursday, April 9th. Visit here for more details.

9. Loved by models, used by makeup artists and sworn by French women, micellar cleansing water is the alternative to removing makeup and impurities on the go.

10. Mindful Work by David Gelles discusses the benefits of yoga, meditation, and other mindful techniques in the workplace.


10 Things We’re Loving In January

January Mood Board

1. A new year means a new planner and we love this one by Sugar Paper.

2. After the holiday season, wearing winter whites is our version of a detox and Net-a-Porter provided the perfect inspiration.

3. Taking a break from stacking rings, you’ll find us rocking just statement pieces like this gorgeous rose quartz Nima ring.

4. Jo Malone Peony and Blush Suede Cologne‘s is a subtle seducer that’s fresh, with hints of peonies, jasmine, rose and gillyflower mixed with juicy red apple.

5. Keep dry lips from chapping with Fresh Sugar Lip Balm. Every flavor is a favorite.

6. After our visit to see the costumes at Winterthur, we’re more excited than ever for Downton Abbey’s return on Sunday, January 4th.

7. Amy Poehler wrote her first book, a memoir titled Yes Please, and it’s sure to be funny, smart, and frank. Cannot wait to dive in.

8. On Sunday, January 11th, pour a glass of red and gear up for the return of Tina and Amy has they host the Golden Globes. We’re big fans of these two.

9. Thank god for cute and cozy boots. The cold weather is here!

10. Moisturizing winter skin is key and this lightweight lotion by Philosophy will leave skin feeling soft and hydrated.
