SHOPPING FOR THE HOLIDAYS? ONE OF OUR FAVORITE PLACES TO GO, AMAZON BOOKSTORE

Ever since the Amazon bookstore opened on 34th street - conveniently located next to the Empire State Building - we cannot get enough of it! Not only they have a great selection of books, but they also have a small coffee shop, most popular/best rated games and great selection of  electronics! So no matter who you are shopping for, friend, coworker, kids, adults, or yourself you can definitely find a unique item in the store! Our favorite section? The travel section! Where we can plan our next trip and prepare for an adventure! Our second favorite? The business section.

Also, if you are a prime member, you get the prime member benefits, and you don’t even need to bring your wallet! Use the amazon app on your phone and pay with whichever card you choose from your Amazon account, overall, great and convenient concept! 

So next time you are around the area and if you haven’t had a chance to, go check it out! And tell us what your favorite section or cool find was ;)

WALKING AROUND NYC & TREASURE HUNTING!

Ok, here is a confession, we consider ourselves treasure hunters, but not just any kind of treasures, our favorite kind is the architecture scenarios and details that we walk past every day and become part of an inspiration.

We love walking around NYC and finding all this amazing buildings with such ornate doors and thinking jackpot! There is so much inspiration around us that it is impossible to narrow down our favorite ones! From small window displays to big buildings, there is always some fascinating pattern we find interesting.

In this post we will share some of our greatest finds!

BECAUSE WE REFUSE TO BELIEVE SUMMER IS OVER -- OUR 1 DAY TRIP TO MONTAUK

Summer is one of our favorite seasons to spend in New York, and not just because of all the things to do that happen in the city, but because of all the great natural places to visit. 

Being emerging designers requires a lot of our time, but sometimes you just need a day to relax and enjoy, so last weekend we decided to take a one day trip to one of our favorite places, Montauk! On this post we want to share with you how we managed our trip adventure to this lovely piece of paradise. 

First, we took the LIRR, it is a far ride but if you prepare for it you can read a book or just admire the view of all the towns in Long Island.

We brought some light snacks and all our essentials. Lightweight and roomy enough we took our Alpha tote for a day in the beach (shop Alpha totes here).

Once we got there we decided to go straight for lunch! After all, It was a 3 hour ride! So we headed to one of our favorite places: Red Hook Lobster Pound for one of the best lobster rolls we’ve had in awhile!

After that, a nice walk and some quick shopping.

Then finally! The beach!

Since we were travelling light we didn’t bring a beach umbrella, but our engineering side kicked in and managed to create some shade for comfort reading.

After spending hours in the water and enjoying the sun, we headed back to the train station, but not before stopping at Montauk Brewing Co, a brewing company that embodies the spirit of the town. Check them out and read more about their story here: https://montaukbrewingco.com/pages/home
