We are so excited to share our birthday getaway at Acqualina Resort + Spa on the Beach. Our little getaway was nothing short of incredible! It was truly the best way to spend our 26th birthday. We have such a great time on these trips together. Even though we work a TON on our blog trips, we still create such incredible memories. Honestly, we always think of Miami as a party city and just a lot of clubs, haha, but our trip there was the total opposite of that! We spend our stay hanging by the pool and beach and enjoying incredible food!
I will be totally honest, at first, when Sam got her Apple watch, I thought it was just another piece of technology that I didn't need to be addicted to. I mean, between my MacBook, iPhone, and tablet, I do not need another device to be glued to. After recording one of our first few episodes of our podcast, An Extra Dose, my friend, Olivia, and my sister were talking about how much they use their Apple watches. Of course, I immediately felt like a little girl again, and had to get one immediately. One of my friends happened to have seen them on sale at Target, so I ordered the rose gold 38mm with the rubber band. I am definitely a pink girl, so I had to go for the most barbie-looking one, right?
It is something so hard to explain or understand, unless you are a twin. The bond is so unique. I know we have met tons of twins along the years, and a lot of them are super competitive, or just lead totally opposite lives. For us, we have always been close. Growing up, we went to a private school, so we were always in the same class. When we went to a public high school, and still had the same classes together. Of course, we like any siblings, we can be competitive. In the end, though, we are always happy for each other’s successes, even if it means both us can’t always win.
A couple weeks ago we went to this incredible music festival in Napa, California, Bottlerock! We had never been before, so we weren't really sure what to wear, or what to pack for it. We had been to Austin City Limits in the past, and knew that you wanted to wear something cute and urban, but also comfortable because you're on your feet the whole day and walking a TON! We are both usually not major fans of sneakers with regular, every day clothes, but were super impressed by how much we LOVED these metallic Nike Cortez sneakers. Not only are they super comfortable for walking around on a trip, or really any day, they are super stylish! The shoe is a classic style that everyone often forgets about (Samantha learned all about it on her trip to Nike in Portland!). You can wear these for any occasion, whether it is running errands, heading out on a trip, going on a date (maybe to a sporting event), or just comfy, weekend wear!
