Escaping the hustle and bustle of New York City is something we like to do often. Whether it's a quick trip upstate, or an extended vacation exploring a new city. This past weekend we had the chance to hang out in the Finger Lakes Wine Country and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Now when you think of wine country, there's obviously one thing that comes to mind, WINE, and man did we have a lot of it. Between visiting wineries, munching on delicious bites, and soaking in the breathtaking landscapes; we can say this was the perfect trip for relaxation.
Tapas? Yes please!! We had the pleasure of stopping by Amada for brunch while we were in Philadelphia. With lots of great options and an unbeatable brunch special, we knew Amada had us covered. The menu features everything from Greek yogurt (not your average Greek yogurt may we add), to coquettes, and even scallops! How can you not love this place. The huevos flamencos was one of the best we have ever had. We are counting down the days until we head back to try the sangria pancakes and other menu items. Amada you've won us over!
Order the pork belly. We repeat, order the pork belly. This is some of the best BBQ around and we are from Texas, so we take this very seriously. Nothing on the menu disappoints and the service is excellent. So, if you are looking for a great place to hang out and eat some damn good food, look no further than Fette Sau.
Holy moly, from the moment we walked into Lokal Hotel we were swept away. This hotel is, dare we say it, "GOALS"! Clearly, from our excitement you can tell this isn't your average hotel, the whole place is perfection. The aesthetic and decor had us "oooh and ahhhing" the whole time. We stayed in the Tina room and loved it, but honestly you cant go wrong with any of the other 5 rooms here, especially since our friends over at Jersey Ice Cream Co designed it. We left feeling so inspired, and now we are currently heading back to our apartment to redecorate a bit.
We headed out to Washington D.C. to spend a day with family while they were on vacation. We tried to make the most of our time and get in as much as possible. By the end of the day we were pooped but it was well worth it.

Our time spent in Hudson, NY instantly became one of our favorite adventures upstate. We had no idea how lovely this quaint town would be. Everything was great from the food, to our stay at Rivertown Guesthouse. We were so inspired by every room and corner inside Rivertown Guesthouse. Here's a few of our favorite pictures from our stay.

Who knew that a weekend at The Inn at Perry Cabin by Belmond was exactly what we needed after an extremely tiring week. We snuck away to this nautical themed hotel and were swept off our feet with the impeccable hospitality of the staff and the extreme comforts of the room. We shared wine and laughs with new friends, took a boat out into the Chesapeake Bay, and sat in Adirondack chairs while the sun would disappear. If you're in need of an escape, we suggest heading out for a weekend at The Inn at Perry Cabin.
The days were hot, the food was impeccable, and every single house seemed to be just as beautiful as the next. Savannah blew us away with its charm. Here's a few of our favorite film photos from our weekend in Savannah. We hope you enjoy!
We were invited by our good friends over at Zio & Sons to spend an afternoon trying some of the best cocktails made with St-Germain. We stopped by Maison Premiere as our first stop on the bar crawl throughout Brooklyn. As one of favorite places in Brooklyn, we couldn't pass up on a chance to give you a glimpse into this New Orleans styled restaurant right in Williamsburg. Be sure to swing by, order up some plump oysters, and crafted cocktails. Don't forget they have a garden in the back.
If you're in the East Village and you're in the mood for oysters, we have the perfect place for you. Goodnight Sonny has been a favorite of ours for awhile now, we just love how the sun pours into this place while we sip cocktails and knock back oysters. Not to mention the thoughtful, fun decor that will keep your attention your entire time.
We knew we were in for a treat when we stepped inside this beauty. We sat down at the bar and ordered a few cocktails while we waited to be seated. These creative seafood dishes kep surprising us bite after bite. Make sure you stay for dessert!

Stop into this swanky cocktail bar for some exceptional creative cocktails. The marble bar and the decor will bring you back to another time. Grab a seat at the bar and let the bartender guide you through their menu to make the perfect cocktail selection.
If this is what a true southern brunch is like, then we need it in our lives every weekend! We couldn't get enough of the delicious food at The Collins Corner. So much so, that we were thinking about ordering even more food after our brunch, because everything was just too freaking good! We highly recommend ordering the 'Tag this Hash" and the 'Swine time Beni'.

Sooooo, obviously staying in a mansion has been on our bucket list for some time now. So, when we walked up to our "home for the weekend" while in Savannah, we were beyond excited! And even more so in love once we opened the doors and took a tour of this beautiful place. This beautiful home was so inspiring words and pictures don't do it justice! Here are a few of our favorites.
We're constantly discovering new places in this city and even though we've lived here over 8+ years now, we still haven't eaten at even half of the restaurants here in NYC. Our new discovery this week was Industry Kitchen, and boy are we glad we found out about it when we did. It is located at the edge of the East River on South St; this New American restaurant which serves up delicious eats like watermelon salad, avocado toast, and wood fire pizzas. Not only is the food on point but the drinks are too. With the weather warming up and summer quickly approaching, we cant help but to get excited about returning here with friends for drinks and bites soon!
Last week we had the opportunity to partner with Chevy on a road trip to Upstate New York. We cruised up north with our playlist ready, and our windows down ready to enjoy the cool spring breeze. The built in wifi was perfect for the country roads when our phones had 'No Service'. We traveled through small towns enjoying the lush green of the tress and charm of little shops and markets. Some of our favorite features of the Chevy Cruze were the instant Bluetooth connectivity, impeccable gas mileage, the spacious leg room (after all we are pretty tall people), and how smooth this baby drove. Oh, and even though its a bit on the smaller side this beauty has some serious horsepower.
First Stop: We made it to Beacon, NY where the waterfalls were beautiful and the people were charming. We spent a few days here enjoying all this town had to offer from its local fare, craft beer, and one of our favorite museums,Dia.Beacon. We stayed at this industrial chic hotel, The Roundhouse and had a relaxing time.
Our next and last stop on this 5 day road trip was Hudson, NY. Up to this point we had only heard about Hudson and how we had to make a trip up here to experience the charm. We were blown away by the amount of furniture shops, restaurants, and charm that Hudson has to offer. We spent a bit of our time driving to nearby towns looking for scenic outlooks and even drove up to West Point to catch the sunset.
Thanks Chevy, for having us travel in style!

Have we told you guys about MILK BARN yet? Nope? Well then you are in for a treat! We spent our past weekend at this breathtaking property with a few friends. Our mornings were spent building fires outside while sipping coffee. Afternoons were spent exploring towns nearby, and evenings were spent chefing up dinner in the kitchen of our dreams while the records spinned. We made sure to enjoy every part of this 15 acre property, from the 2 Guesthouses, the treehouse, the sauna, and the pond.
We had the chance to spend the week in Southern Arizona, so we packed our bags with anticipation to get back to the desert again. We started in Tucson for a few days and then we headed down towards the border of Arizona and Mexico where we spent a couple of days in Bisbee, AZ. We knew we loved Phoenix after our trip there in January, but this trip solidified our love for Arizona. Here are a few of our favorite shots. We hope you enjoy.
Did we mention that we moved to Brooklyn a few months ago? With us moving to a new borough and space we decided to start fresh so we left most of our furniture behind.
This time around it was important for us to focus on bringing quality pieces into our home. So when the folks at Airweave reached out to collaborate we knew this would be a good fit.
As soon as we laid on this mattress we instantly became fans, and after a full nights sleep on the mattress we were sold. The cutting edge technology of the airfiber synchronizes to your body allowing easier movements and airflow. Trust us, as extremely light sleepers this mattress has changed our sleeping game.
