The new H&M at 100 Newbury Street will offer collections for ladies, men, young ladies and young men, with separate “store within store” sections for accessories, lingerie, maternity, Home, sports apparel and its plus-size line.Read More ➛
As a kid, I always loved reading. Going to the library was a treat, and the day I got my very own library card was a right of passage. I remember participating in the summer reading programs, and the little log book my mom gave me to keep track of when my books were due.
Flash forward about 10 years and I'm rarely at the library. Though I have a library card, I find myself more comfortable searching for books online and downloading them to my iPad. Unfortunately, that can get a little pricey. Though the Boston library does have an e-book section where you can borrow books and download them directly to your preferred device, the user interface isn't the greatest, and you're often on hold waiting for others to finish and return the book you want.Read More ➛
I know, I know- it's hard to think about fall clothing when it's so warm outside, but with brands putting out their fall collections, it's hard not to! I received the Boden catalogue in the mail this week and knew I needed to share some of my favorite fall pieces with you. I'm really digging the whimsical dog and London theme prints, as well as the bright colored, vintage-y dresses. Enjoy!Read More ➛
By the power vested in me by...the Internet? this blog? my dog? I'd like to officially declare this the summer of the maxi dress. Sure, they've been popular for a while, but I'm just really starting to appreciate them.Read More ➛
So...have you heard of Wayfair? They're an awesome, Boston-based company that sells a little bit of everything! I love checking them out for home inspiration, especially for my dream future non-rental home. I'm currently fantasizing about my own fenced in yard, complete with patio area, grill, hammock and garden.Read More ➛
I've always had to shy away from those delicious sounding pesto dishes when dining out because of one pesky little ingredient: the pine nut. Sure, it sounds innocent enough, but for those of us with nut allergies, pine nuts are a no-no. While they don't cause as great a reaction (at least not for me) as their walnut cousin, it's still not really worth getting an itchy throat just to enjoy a sauce, albeit a delicious one.Read More ➛
Everyone who knows me knows I love shoes. I mean, seriously, I have a shoe wall (I know, I know- I'll do a blog post about it eventually). When FFaNY, the Fashion and Footwear Association of New York invited me to attend their shoe show, I jumped at the opportunity. With boyfriend in tow, I headed down to New York on Tuesday.Read More ➛
