Trav and Bri, Recently: vol1

I figure if my blog title rhymes, I should also rhyme this new weekly update I'm going to try to stay consistent with. During the week, I focus mostly on my outfits. But there's been a ton of other stuff going on in my life lately that I'd also like to share, so I'm going to make an effort to do it here, on Sundays. Let me know if there's special content you'd like to see as part of this weekly recap.

If you follow me on Instagram, you know by now that I chopped off some hair on Wednesday. I haven't had bangs since I was 5 years old and in kindergarten, and I was


 to take the plunge. But after cutting 3" off the rest of my hair, I figured it wasn't going to kill me to add some bangs to the mix. And I think I love it. Any bang-care/style tips out there from those of you who have had bangs?? 



We got an awesome blender as part of our wedding registry, so this is what breakfast has looked like lately. We have breakfast together most days before leaving for work, and it has quickly become one of my favorite parts of the day, especially with all of the fun smoothies we've been making. Any favorite smoothie tricks or recipes? 


in love
