Pot n’ Kettle Cottages Leiper’s Fork

April 17, 2017

pot n' kettle cottages

 

 It’s been such a whirlwind since we’ve been back in New York for longer than a week. We are so excited to finally share our photos from our magical trip to Leiper’s Fork in Franklin, Tennessee. Above are photos of the most adorable and relaxing rental home company called Pot N’ Kettle Cottages. We are so lucky the Picker’s Cottage was available when we were in town. Cottage is an understatement. This home is positively stunning. Once we saw the front yard, porch swing, and giant backyard with a fire pit we were sold. This is a dream home! The house is expertly decorated, and totally cozy. We loved the spacious layout of the kitchen and living room. 

Make sure to check back for our photos from the town of Leiper’s Fork, because it’s literally the coolest place on the planet. We’ve posted about it before, but this time we were fully submersed in the community. Thank you to Eric and Sam for letting us stay in Picker’s Cottage so we could get the full experience. 

Check out the rest of their rentals HERE!

Hopped off the L train and cruised by The New Stand, as we usually do, but we stopped dead in our tracks to see the gorgeous face of Ruby Rose. Little did we know this was the campaign for Urban Decay’s new Basquiat collection, and it’s been sold pretail pop-up style at The New Stand for a week before it’s official release. The entire shop has been taken over by UD, and we want literally all of the products. Makeup junkies and art fans – make sure to check out this experience at the Union Square station. Leave it to the visionaries at The New Stand to bring you an exclusive makeup pop-up in the subway underground. Genius.

More info about the collection HERE!

Channeling Katniss Everdeen at Queens Archery

April 11, 2017

When we decided to take archery lessons at Queens Archery, we knew we couldn’t just wear any old outfit. I mean we would be carrying a bow and arrow… how many times in your life have you been like, my outfit is so cool, but it’s missing a bow. (We honestly say that more than you would think.) We couldn’t miss out on an opportunity like this. I decided to whip out my black bodysuit and channel Katniss Everdeen. Was I the only person dressed like the cast of Hunger Games in the class? Yes. Did I care? Not even a little. 

It was a pretty large class and I did get some looks. However, I felt like a badass, so it was totally worth it. It’s so cool that something like this is offered in NYC. We had been looking forward to it for awhile and it was nothing short of our expectations. The staff was so friendly and the space was really cool. We were in a beginner class of about 25. We learned all the safety rules first and then que Katniss! I was a decent shot and almost got a bullseye. Definitely need to practice my newly acquired skill set to get to Hunger Games status.

You can check out their site to purchase lessons here. The weather is getting nice, so it’s time to get out of your comfort zone!

Sidenote: I’m also thinking of getting a bodysuit similar to this except in a patent latex… yay? nay? You know for going out, and grocery runs.
