January is for sure the busiest month for gyms across America. If your New Year’s resolution is to kick off a brand new fitness plan, then take the advice of someone who’s been going to the gym for an entire year (I’m basically a professional athlete now): all gyms have the same people. Sure, the vibe of each gym might be different and the equipment may vary, but it’s practically a guarantee that you’ll run into one of these five people you meet at the gym.Keep Reading

Hello, 2018! Man are we glad to put 2017 behind us and (fingers crossed) kick off an even better year. Despite being out of range of the bomb cyclone, it’s still cold AF in Cleveland and we’re jealous of Robin’s California weather. Between the weather and week one of the Whole30, Hannah and Michelle are definitely ready for the weekend! Here’s what we’ve been thinking about in this week’s And Then We Tried Obsessions.

Fabric Dying 101: Indigo Dye and Shibori Folding Patterns

If you went online in the summer of 2016, you’ve inevitably seen Shibori dye and the indigo everything as a result. Shibori is essentially tie-dye but using only indigo instead of the rainbow of colors. Which makes it pretty much foolproof since there is no risk of accidentally using too many colors and dying your shirt poop brown (we’ve all been there). The kits are easy to find online and the real fun comes in with trying all the different Shibori folding patterns to get one of a kind results.

Everlane Denim Review (#notsponsored, Just Fangirls)

In a not-entirely-successful attempt to take my wardrobe in the direction of quality over quantity, I’ve fallen for Everlane and their clean and classic pieces that never go out of style. They have been on my radar for a few years now with their effortlessly tailored looks, because who doesn’t want a quality piece of clothing that makes you look more put together?

They don’t just sell great clothes though, they also give back. They’ve worked with organizations like the ACLU on their 100% Human campaign, which donates to the organization for every piece sold. All three of us own the 100% Human muscle tee and can vouch for its comfort and style.

As if I needed another reason to sing Everlane’s praises, they announced that they were adding denim to their collection and that they would be priced at only $68. I, of course, was more than game to try it out. So, follow along as we take a #notsponsored look in our Everlane denim review.

After purchasing two amazing prints from the talented Amy Blackwell and her shop Audrey and Illya, I’ve been at a loss as to how to frame them. To those of us who don’t use international paper sizes, the A4 prints are roughly an 8.5″ x 11″ but not exactly. Because of that, I had the hardest time finding a frame to use. I know they must make A4 frames but alas I could not find one I liked. While there is always the option for custom frames (expensive) or having a mat cut (slightly less expensive), but I needed another alternative.
