Maps Maps Maps

Both of us have a passion for traveling. There is something about the freedom, adventure, unknown, and culture that makes traveling so invigorating and exciting for the two of us. But, not only do I, Morgan, love travel, but ever since I was a kid I was obsessed with maps. I’ve always loved being the ‘navigator’ on car trips or sitting down to look at the atlas for a while when I was a child. There was also the game we would play where we’d spin the globe around as fast as we could and wherever our finger was when the globe stopped spinning was where we’d ‘travel’ next.

In wondering what we could do to cover up some of our bare white apartment walls, my first thought was MAPS! Though we have yet to put any maps up on the walls yet, here is some inspiration we are using to pull from!

Gosh. I could post photos of map decor all day…and during my search I actually purchased something for our house…

THIS ONE!

CAN’T WAIT FOR IT TO ARRIVE! One of our big, blank, white walls could really use it!!!

Wednesday Wisdom 9.26.12

It’s another hump day & we’re hoping it goes by quickly so we’re one day closer to the weekend! I mean, how is it ONLY Wednesday?! Enjoy the below tidbits of knowledge we have to share with you today for this week’s Wednesday Wisdom!

√ DO purchase a pair of killer Dylan George black leggings with leather down the inner seam while shopping La Brea Avenue on Sunday afternoon. X DO NOT try to show off how bad ass you are to your father unless you want to hear “you look like you should ride a horse… I mean, you look so equestrian. I guess you better add one of those horse riding helmets to your outfit.” Thanks dad, I was feeling so cool until you mentioned that helmet.

Excuse me sir at Starbucks, X DO NOT wear a purple shirt, a pair of purple ombre pants, and purple shoes. One, of all colors, did it have to be purple? And two, it’s just TOO much. √ DO play with mixing color. Have fun mixing prints and colors to create eye catching ensembles. Try mixing and matching some pieces in your wardrobe you wouldn’t normally wear together & see what you come up with!

√ DO both take the time to have great conversations with your brothers this week (coincidentally both named Connor). With one being in Oregon and the other in Buenos Aires, it’s nice for us big sisters to talk with our younger brothers and catch up on life!

Have you seen any X DO NOT moments out and about that we need to know of? What √DO examples have inspired you lately?

Wednesday Wisdom 8.15.12

It’s Wednesday again, which means another week is half way through. Power through this Wednesday and you’re over the hump – just a few more days until what we’re all looking forward to, the weekend! Enjoy the following DOs and DONTs regarding life, fashion, and fun for this week’s Wednesday Wisdom!

X DO NOT wear an incognito prints-galore outfit to a Dodgers game while its 95 degrees outside. First thing, way too many prints that are not complimenting each other, and second, HELLO it’s 95 degrees outside which is far too hot for leopard pants, a metallic sweater, and a huge printed wrap over your head. Is all that mix-matched clothing necessary? √ DO learn how to pair prints to create beautiful ensembles from this year’s Fall  12 fashion runway shows. There are options for everyone!

 X DO NOT believe that you are going to stand up paddle board in your clothing and not fall in the water, especially when surrounded by four guys. Someone will suddenly jump on your board and while you were once perfectly balanced and dry you will suddenly be swimming wearing a 7 POUND pair of jeans rather than Seven Jeans. √ DO Face your fears and defeat your phobias because life’s too short to live in fear. So swim in dark waters for an hour after falling off your paddle board at 3 am and wear clothes in the river even though you’ve grown up with a phobia of wearing clothing in water. I mean… why not. Be fearless!

√ DO enjoy summer and surround yourself with fun… participating in work summer BBQs or tennis nights with coworkers. It’s already the middle of August and the last weeks of summer need to be embraced! X DO NOT put food on your plate while talking to coworkers at said work BBQ without looking at the labels the creator of the dish has put next to the food. Otherwise, you will soon be putting ketchup on what you believe is french fries when someone will look at you and say “that is jicama and you are putting ketchup on your fruit.” whoops.
