Christmas Pajamas

As we are now into December, it is only right to begin the Christmas countdown. And the best way that I know is by wearing Christmas pajamas. Yes, I’m one of those crazy people who forced my poor boyfriend and dog to wear matching Christmas pajamas. But guess what, I don’t think they actually felt that forced. I mean, c’mon, they’re from The Company Store – they are SO cozy!

Jacob and I decided to get our Christmas cards done early this year, so we pulled out the trip-pod and took a couple of photos (and by couple I mean couple hundred.) We aren’t the most photogenic folks, ok?

Otis was clearly the star of the show, I mean look at that face. After the photos were taken, it was time for him to sulk and/or take a nap. You can tell he looked all too enthused.

Now throw on your Christmas jammies, grab a cup of cocoa, and snuggle up!

Happy holidays!
XO,

Becky Lee

Suede & Dutch Braids

This autumn, I’ve been all about the suede and dutch braids.

Suede has been an essential for me this fall. When I spotted this dress on sale on Forever21.com, I knew I had to put it in my shopping basket. Suede is super versatile, but I think it works great for the fall time especially. Pair suede with a white turtle neck or sweater, some black tights, and brown booties- you’ll be set! This is currently my favorite outfit as it’s so comfortable and simple.

Since I’ve recently taught myself to dutch braid, it has pretty much been my favorite hairstyle when I haven’t washed my hair in a day or two. Think of this braid as the french braid’s cousin. Instead of crossing pieces over, a dutch braid requires you to cross pieces under each other. While it takes some practice, once your fingers and arms have mastered the motions, you’ll be able to braid without even looking in a mirror. Please leave a comment below if you’d like a tutorial on this hairstyle – I’d love to post more hair tutorials!

Enjoy the rest of fall and keep warm!

XO,

Becky Lee

A couple weekends ago, Jacob and I went back home to Vermont. We made it just in time for the foliage (this weekend there was snow in VT!). We had such a great time visiting with family and playing with the pups. If you’ve never visited Vermont before, I highly recommend that you do. There is something truly special about Vermont, and I’m not sure that I can pinpoint one thing in particular. Stunning views, vibrant colors, and amazing people. That’s why I Lovermont.

Autumn Walks

autumn walksautumn walks

One of our favorite autumn walks is Railroad Run in downtown Saratoga. It’s a half-mile trail that takes us about a half-mile to get to. So by the time we’ve arrived to the trail and walked home, you can imagine how Otis feels (aka pooped!). This trail is always full of bikers, dog walkers, and runners. It’s the perfect trail for anyone who lives in Downtown Saratoga, because it’s quiet and so peaceful. We decided to head down to the trail one warm afternoon and snap a few photos. I was really happy with how they came out (thank you, Jacob!).

Check out more about the Railroad Run trail here.

Lazy Fall Afternoon

This past Sunday was a true lazy fall afternoon. Otis, Jacob and I love when we can have cozy afternoons, especially during the cooler seasons. My favorite thing, probably ever, is to be in bed with cozy slippers and Otis with an electric blanket and my laptop. Also, leggings and baggy sweaters are probably my favorite outfit of all time. It’s all about being comfortable and cozy during fall. And yes, Otis can jump up on our bed and is currently snuggled up in all of the blankets and pillows as we speak.

I hope you’re all enjoying this beautiful fall weather and enjoying everything autumnal!

Cape Cod

Two weekends ago I spent a few days in Cape Cod with my girl, Brooke (aka BLB). We had the absolute best time – this was my very first trip to the Cape and it was even better than I imagined. Amazing food, stunning views, perfect weather, and the best company! Brooke and I had two full days to explore, and we took full advantage!

Cape Cod Mini-Vacation

Day 1

Day #1 was a travel day. We made great time leaving at 8am, arriving around 1:30pm. We grabbed sandwiches at The Salty Market (anyone planning on going to North Truro, you must visit this cute store). The rest of the day consisted of settling in and preparing for the next few days. We had the most amazing view from our room (we stayed at Horizons Beach Resort) and had direct access to the beach. It was unreal.

Day 2

Beach day, beach day! Brooke and I spent the majority of the day at the Cape Cod National Seashore! This beach was stunning – beautiful water, the smoothest sand, SEALS(!!), and the best people watching. Plus, admission was free – apparently the weekend we visited was the celebration of the 100th anniversary of national parks. What did this mean for us? We had $30 extra to spend on wine slushies tomorrow! I think that was the highlight of the day, honestly.

The rest of the evening consisted of drinking wine to prepare for our evening in Provincetown. We caught a bus (we survived!) and spent the evening exploring the bustling town. We shopped around for a bit and then headed to the Lobster Pot for dinner – seriously, if you’re ever in Provincetown, please go to this restaurant, you will not be dissapointed! It is SO worth the wait (and yes, we waited 1 1/2 hours). Make sure to say “Hello” to Sean for us!

Day 3

Day 3 was another beach and wine day! We spent the morning on the beach and then popped over to the Truro Vineyards – less than a five minute drive down the road from our hotel. Once there we indulged in wine slushies, hotdogs smothered in bacon jam, and a little photoshoot action. There was even an ice cream truck that stopped by for an hour or so (we had to restrain ourselves, it was really difficult).

We then headed back to the beach to enjoy the rest of the afternoon (and a bottle of wine!). Can’t get much better than that.

Dinner was spent at The Beachcomber, where I tried my first raw oyster (still unsure of my feelings) and the freshest cod sandwiches. Best. Day. Ever.

Day 4

Our last morning in the Cape! We drove into Provincetown for breakfast (and had the best breakfast sandwich of our lives at Pop+Dutch). We then hit the road and headed back to reality, determining we should probably do a cleanse after all the carbs, alcohol, and fried goodness we consumed in the last few days.

What an amazing trip! Thank you to Brooke for inviting me and thank you mother nature for giving us the most perfect weekend of blue skies, sand, and sunshine.

Becky Lee

Sleepy Puppy: Otis Photo Shoot

On a warm summer afternoon, my sleepy puppy Otis loves to jump into my bed and take a nap. I mean, on a hot sunny day, who doesn’t love to be in an AC’d apartment laying in bed all day? I’d say this Bulldog has the right idea.

Have you ever thought, “Wow, my dog’s more photogenic than I am.” I have…every day.

Odie’s 1st Birthday

A year ago today, our little bug was born! To celebrate Otis, we had several play times at the dog park, a few naps on the couch, and of course, cake. I found a recipe online that I actually ended up screwing up (shocking, I know!), but it came out super moist and hey, Otis liked it! Don’t believe me? Check out the evidence below.

This next one was too good not to share.

Just when we thought he was done, he had to ensure he had licked up every last crumb. Don’t worry, we sanitized the table immediately after the feast.IMG_1608-1

Happy 1st Birthday to our favorite pup! We love you Otis.
