Wow, what a year 2013 was! We can't even believe how crazy fast it went by. Here are some of many highlights of the year:
-We started out the year with Erin's bar cabinet makeover
-Our online shop was featured on the website of our favorite magazine - Frankie!
-We were contacted by H&M and were featured on their website too!

-Stef's home was featured in Frankie magazine!
-We seemed to spend a lot of time in the kitchen in February, and our favorite recipe/diy post was "How to make the perfect cheeseboard".

- We celebrated Stef's birthday, complete with a mint coloured cake.
We launched our Instagram shop in March!

- In April we got to go back to Thailand.
- We also shared some tips for shopping in Asia, as well as some of Erin's favorite Thai recipes including one for crab wontons.

- May was a pretty exciting month for us. We shot a video that was on MTV and you can watch it here!

- Erin went on a trip with girlfriends to Chicago.

- Erin celebrated (pretty hard) at her good friends' Sam & Tristan's wedding.

- Our trip in S.E. Asia continued to Bali.
- We got our photos back from our shoot with Brittany Hildebrandt!
