There are always things that are making us happy during the week. So we decided to share them with you!
Cait: dulce de leche
I don’t really know how this started, i think it was when Alissa made alfajores and I was transported back to my days of backpacking with my best friend in Argentina, and eating dulce de leche out of the jar. It so weird that I gained all that weight there…I have been making it, giving it away, and putting it on everything this month. No signs of slowing down.
Ever since Corbett started the soft open of the Kettlebell Café (more on that next week!) at Crossfit Amatak, none of my mornings have been complete without this little glass of a one to one ratio of espresso and foamy milk. I’m a diagnosed coffee addict, so you can imagine how I’m reeling after a 630am work out. This cup of wonder solves the sweaty zombie problem. The good company that comes with the coffee is nice too.
Cait: Brooks Brothers Man Shirt
My mom gave me this for Christmas and it show up about 2-3 times/week. It’s big enough that it’s somehow cozy and cool at the same time, but doesn’t look gigantic. I have it in white, so it feels classic, especially when I drop my pad thai down the front. (Tide pens were created for me.)
Tiff: Tonlé Kampot Skirt ($32 USD, available in Tonlé’s Phnom Penh boutique)
Last year I got to try this skirt on at a super fun photo shoot for Tonlé. I loved it so much, the way it draped, and hugged my curves and flaunted what I struggle to heart about my body. So of course I had to take it home with me. Now it’s my go-to piece for cocktails with the girls, date night, or an evening of live music and dancing. I’m currently sad it’s in the laundry.
I want to go back. I think about how I can get there on the daily and dream of slurping noodles in crowded alleys and chillin’ with monkeys in hot springs. Its a thing.
In June, I’m heading to Copenhagen to see my amazing, super smart, saving the world from obesity and its discontents friend Jo. I can’t wait. In preparation, I’m watching this, and planning to see the city by cycle while Jo’s at work.
Cait: The Imitation Game
I saw this a few weeks ago, and it hasn’t left my brain. It was profound and beautiful and sad. And how bouncy was Kiera Knightly’s hair?
Tiff: In Vogue: The Editor’s Eye
I’m all soaking up all the photography and layout skillz right now, so when I saw this coming on, my week got better. Getting to know the ladies behind the photos and the looks is exactly what I need right now.
Cait: Pocket Yoga App
This thing is awesome. It has different classes, music, class lengths and backgrounds. I am partial to the desert class. There is a very nice lady that feels like a real yoga teacher taking you through each class. In the last few weeks, it has made me less crazy and I can touch my forehead to my knees now, which makes me look crazy anyway. Success.
Tiff: Davines Curl Building Serum and Xtava Collapsibe Diffuser
When I got my hair chopped off last year, Vaughn decided to work with the natural waves I have and build it to this great wavy curly ‘do that I’m so digging and will get out every so often these days. He taught me how to build this look using a curl building serum by Davines and this nifty collapsible diffuser that I can bring with me on travels. I’ve been avoiding the diffuser since I thought it would take ages to set, but I was basically wrong. 10 minutes. Bam. So happy about this new look.
