It's awfully hot here in Texas, so one of our fave sweet treats in the summer is a popsicle!

[I can't seem to track down the original source of the first photo, so if you know it please let us know and we'll site it correctly! The champagne popsicles are found on Southern Living]

Isn't the popsicle + champagne combination one of the best ever? We're going to give it a go this weekend for sure.

Anyone have exciting, adventurous plans?

 We can't get enough of the new Brett Dennen album, Loverboy around here. It feels summery and fun, plus he rocks the ginger hair which we love.

kinfolk magazine

 We recently came into a couple of iPads and have since become obsessed with online magazines. This weekend Kinfolk launched and I have to say it's a beauty. I know everyone under the sun is talking about its loveliness this week, but how could I resist?

The styling and photos are impeccable. And is your mouth watering just looking at that sandwich? Mine sure is.

Also, if you haven't seen their super legit video, check it out here.

Do you like online magazines?

 How was your weekend? Ours was indeed celebrated with something fizzy. Also lots of chocolate chip cookies.


 I saw this recipe for the best chocolate chip cookie on the planet by Jacques Torres on the Crepes of Wrath blog (which I adore and if you ever need a delish recipe with wonderful photos I highly recommend it) so I decided to give them a go this weekend. 

I'm happy to report I have a new fave recipe and that it's absolutely worth the wild goose chase to find both cake and bread flour A N D the 24 hour chill time!

Do you have a go to recipe for classics like the chocolate chip cookie?

We love: Hello Giggles + Zooey D

Ever since I saw this video on Hello Giggles I haven't been able to get Patsy Cline out of my head. The whole video chat karaoke series is brilliant. Add Zooey D and you have one super legit feature.

If you haven't seen Hello Giggles yet, definitely check it out. There are great articles on being a pimp, myths about movies and summer reading lists too.

 Not to mention their branding and logo is spot on as well:

DIY: Pinwheels

When we were prepping for our launch party we had a bit of trouble finding a good pinwheel DIY so we thought we'd put together a little how-to:


Let's break it down:
-Gather your materials:
Origami paper
Construction/card stock/sturdy paper
Hole punch
Glue stick
Dowel rods
-Next, glue your origami paper to your card stock.
-Then cut out around origami paper.
-Next cut into the square at each of the four points, nearly to the middle.
-Punch holes in every other point and a small hole in the center.
-Start with one corner bring and insert the brad... Gather every other corner through the brad.
-Secure the brad, then attach the dowel rod to the back. 
You can either add a bead between the dowl rod and the brad to make it a functioning pinwheel or (like we did for our party) just hot glue the brad to the dowl rod.

Hope y'all find this helpful, but if you have questions let us know!

happy 4th of july!

Happy 4th of July friends!
Anyone have fun plans for the long weekend? 
Unfortunately, there's a burn ban covering a good part of Texas so fireworks aren't in the cards for us, but how fun do these noise makers look? Melanie from You Are My Fave made them and I think they're super cute!
