TRAVELING TOGETHER


both and I had never explored london. we had zero idea what the “hip” areas were, and we just wanted it to be perfect. for the start of our london trip, we chose to stay at and it was a legit choice for sure.


i was immediately intrigued by the unique juxtaposition of old and new going on with the design of the hotel. they have all these little surprises spread around the rooms (brass animals hiding places, unexpected furniture…)


we made these memory books to document our travels together. it took me back to my days of working on a journal everyday…cutting out magazines, carrying around double stick tape…then it all switched to a digital diary. i miss the handmade way sometimes, don’t you?…


they had such an impressive pool situation. i am obsessed with those gold stairs! and they had these cute rubber ducks planted all around the hotel.



side story: jen left her phone in a cab on the way to (not the best way to start the trip) and the hotel staff went above and beyond to find it. and they did! that one called for a group hug. we became buddies with the really sweet staff here. awesome service like this is hard to find.


oh! we went to the bar to get rid of traveling/jetlag stress and they had the most unique drinks! we ordered one called “the ” that was served under a silver platter with smoked mahogany and sat on top of a leather bound book (that you got to sign) i mean, how funny is that!? this hotel just gets it.

it was really great working with on this. (when I was little I wanted to be a hotel reviewer ha) they have this cool program called where you accumulate 10 nights and get one free. with all this blogshop travel that adds up pretty quick. our paris hotel was toooootally different than this but equally cool. overall, experience was top notch!

ONE MORE WEEK


hello everyone! i have had my family in town for the past few days which always means a lot of eating around town. my boyfriend is traveling for work in china for another week (i can’t believe we have been apart for three weeks!) but I actually have been handling it a lot better than I normally do. i remember when we used to be apart, I used to whine and cry about it. (isn’t the distance hard!?) but i finally seen that there is really no point to all that, and have just tried to keep myself busy and focus on how happy it will be when we get to reunite. that will be a good day.

hopefully lots of you have rsvp’d to this fun workshop we are hosting at anthropologie. we are nearly at capacity! and check out some of the outtakes i just added from the max wanger style shoots

happy friday friends! – bri

STYLE / 32

took these photos a few weeks ago when we were in atlanta (see full post here). i am always amazed at how photographer friends of mine all have such a different outlook on life when it comes to their work. i will walk into a room with two friends, both photographers, and they will shoot the same room and they are so drastically different. however it’s so easy for me to know which one shot which. art is so cool.

i am flying back from new york tomorrow. and i can’t tell you how excited i am to sloooooow my life down a little bit. arian and I are headed home (yep, that’s right, he’s coming home with me for christmas. big moves i suppose) to chicago and then on to my grandma’s farm in quincy, IL. a very small town where my email hopefully won’t even reach. actually that would probs stress me out. but i don’t have to check it as much, and that’s gonna be fun. aren’t you all excited to hibernate?

KEEPIN IT ALIVE


found & 2 unknown

i’m sure some of you can relate to being in a relationship and getting stuck in routines. not that there is anything wrong with a routine. in fact, i need routines in my life to keep me sane. but after a few years with someone, you gotta keep the fun alive. you know, instead of putting furniture together and eating rice & veggies every night. lately i have been thinking of new fun date ideas I could do with my guy.


maybe a bowling / beer night?
or heading to the
drive in movies with takeout food
spending the day at drive around another part of town and explore new food spots
shop for & cook a 5 course meal together
bring some wine to the
a day at the we do have a hot tub on the roof. i should use that.
breakfast for dinner diner date at midnight. eggs at midnight is always fun.

what fun date ideas have you guys gotten yourselves into?
