Travel Tuesday – Packing Edition

Hey Loves! F & J here!Or should we say Aloha! We are writing this blog post in Maui! We couldn’t be more excited to start off this year by traveling to a new and beautiful place. We have been super blessed to be given the opportunity to travel as much as we do, so we have become experts at packing. We know how stressful it can be so we thought we would make a list of what we put in our personal bag for travel.

This is a list of what we put in a small back pack to have during the flight and at the airport, but we are known to be over packers, but we like to be prepared for just about everything. We sometimes don’t use all that we pack but we find comfort in having them there to use if needed.

If we forgot anything let us know in the comments below! Mahalo!

Love,

F & J

Goodbye 2017 Hello 2018

Hey loves! F & J here!2017 was quite the year! We’ve grown a lot on a personal level, continued to stay active and healthy, and got to experience places outside of Seattle we hadn’t planned on seeing just yet.

We spent quality time with family this holiday season, making memories we will remember for years to come. Of course in 2017 we had times that were filled with sadness, hurt, and heartbreak, but we laughed a lot, we were excited, hopeful, happy, and most importantly we were surrounded by the people most important to us and surrounded by love. Looking back we can say that 2017 was a good year for us, and we hope it was for you as well.

Looking forward to 2018 we can only hope that it will be just as good, if not better, than 2017. F came up with the idea, but we both love it, that this year instead of writing down our resolutions we wanted to make a 2018 bucket list.

For us, the biggest “resolution” we make every year is to continue to stay healthy and improve our health in whatever ways we can. It is something that we take very seriously and haven’t given up on year after year. So we figure why make the same “resolution”? We will continue to take care of our physical health as we always have. Instead we wanted to share our 2018 bucket list with you so we can revisit it at the end of 2018 and see how much we were able to do. We will continue to add to the list as the year goes on but for now here it is!

Try Kickboxing

Donate blood

Get passports

Go to Europe

Go to a Sounders game

Get a massage

Take a Barre class

“Adopt” a family for Christmas

That’s all for now! Let us know what’s on your 2018 bucket list in the comments. We would love to hear!

Peace out 2017! 2018, we are ready to face you head on and make you our best year yet.

Love,

F & J

Merry Christmas

Hey Loves! F & J here!

We hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas or whatever you are celebrating this holiday season. Even if you are just celebrating life we hope your day is filled with magic, love and warmth.

We feel very lucky to be waking up to a picture perfect white Christmas here in Seattle. We will be spending our day eating the cookies Santa left behind, dancing to Christmas music, and spending time with our families.

We are sending a lot of love and happiness your way. Happy Holidays!

Love,

F & J

Christmas Playlist

Hey Loves! F & J here!We can’t believe that Christmas is just a few days away. Like where is the time going?! We are kind of sad because it means the holiday season is almost over too. We’ve been listening to all the Christmas music that we can and we thought we’d put together a list of all our favorite Christmas songs. Obviously this is the very condensed version, because we love all Christmas music! We will be replaying these songs until Christmas night! Let us know your favorite Christmas songs below!

Merry Christmas!

Love,

F & J

FabFitFun Unboxing – Winter 2017

Hey Loves! F & J here!

We cant help but obsess about our subscription to FabFitFun. The products they stuff the boxes with are so useful, adorable, and insanely high quality. It really is like opening a present for yourself. The best part is they are all full size products, so anything you don’t love, you can always regift.

We are really excited that this box has everything you could want for a winter day.

A nice pair of super soft aloe infused fuzzy socks and a cute poncho will definitely help fight the cold. And we are so in love with the hand cream, the smell is nice and subtle, and its super hydrating as well. Plus there is also an awesome exfoliant that will help combat dry winter skin.

We are suckers for cute coffee mugs and we must say that we will definitely be adding this guy to our collection of mugs (you can never have too many!).

There is also a beautiful eyeshadow palette, with gorgeous shades of brown and gold, that we can’t wait to use, after using the hydrating eye masks of course.

And to top it all off a gorgeous layered rose gold necklace, which will pair perfectly with a little black dress.

We think this box really hit the mark, and if you are jealous you can get one for yourself by clicking here! We really think you should, you deserve to give yourself a present too!

Love,

F & J

We Found Diagon Alley

Hey Loves! F & J here!

If you are from the Seattle area you may have seen this going viral, but no matter where you are from this is something we HAD to share. This pop up Diagon Alley was built in a Seattle driveway in only seventeen days! If you are a Harry Potter lover then you have to check it out before it comes down later this month. They have managed to turn this amazing project into a way to raise money for Pancreatic Cancer, in the name of a close friend, so far donating $16,300. We went when they had Dumbledore Santa as well as 30 other cast members, who all did an amazing job channeling their character. Gilderoy Lockhart was even handing out photos of himself!

The attention to detail was absolutely amazing! It’s hard to believe someone built it just for a Halloween project. Obviously it went viral and rightfully so. Its very similar to walking down Diagon Alley in the Wizarding World and trust us, we would know! We also got to drink some delicious Butterbeer, which the proceeds also went to a great cause.

 If you are in the area we highly recommend you check it out! Its worth the wait in line, which went by fairly quickly with the help of characters coming out and taking pictures! And if you are too far away we feel bad you can’t share this magic, but if any of you feel moved to give you can click here.

Mischief Managed.

Love,

F & J

 

Hello December

Hey Loves! F & J here!

Can you believe it’s already December? We can’t, but we are so excited and ready to embrace the holiday season in all its wonder. We’ve been starting to decorate since the day after Thanksgiving, but now we get to go into full crazy holiday mode and we couldn’t be more ecstatic. We already have a huge list of traditions we have to get through that include watching too many classic Christmas movies, eating too many winter treats, and listening to an overwhelming amount of Holiday songs!

We will be spending the weekend dressing up our trees, while the smell of pine and cinnamon fill our house. And splurging on gifts for the ones we love.

There isn’t one thing we don’t love about the holidays. But our favorite thing is spending time with our friends and family while the Holiday magic swirls in the air. What are your favorite things to do to celebrate the holidays?

Merry Everything!

Love,

F & J
