It's funny, I initially thought Maggie would grow out of her puppy phase by age 1. When she was still full of energy by age 2, I thought she'd never slow down. She stayed pretty active through age 3, but when she turned 4, she finally started slowing down.Read More
Our new apartment has a lot of great features. It's bigger than our last place, the layout is better and we have an actual yard! But all those things aside, our old apartment did have one thing this apartment doesn't have: in unit laundry.
While we may not have our washer and dryer in our actual unit, we were able to set them up in the basement that's pretty easily accessible. All in all, it's not like it's a long walk to get down to the basement. No, the hardest thing for me to deal with is that the basement is unfinished, full of junk and overall not a pleasant place to spend time in. As renters, there's not that much we can do about it, so we had to get creative.Read More
Have you heard of Cost Plus World Market? It's an awesome store that sells all kinds of goods for your home. Until now, we New Englanders could only shop the store online. But this Thursday, October 1, they will be opening their first brick and mortar location in greater New England in Framingham, MA at Shoppers World (1 Worcester Road Framingham, MA 01701).Read More
What are you doing this weekend? Besides packing (we're moving up the street to a new place- with a yard), I'll be sweating my butt off at a new type of fitness class, trillfit.
Inspired by hip-hop and aimed at health-minded millennials, trillfit organizes compelling fitness activations and social gatherings (complete with premium gift bags) that celebrate the urban experience. Led by world-class instructors and set to the score of live DJ’s spinning, trillfit fuses hip-hop and fitness into one party-like experience.
I'm a little worried I'm going to get my butt kicked, but hey, it's worth a shot. Plus, I'll get to put my new apple watch (which Eric surprised me with yesterday, so sweet!) to the test. I'm looking forward to testing the activity features and seeing how many calories I can burn. By the looks of this class, it seems like it's going to be a lot.
Want to experience trillfit for yourself? You can get tickets to the launch event here.
*Thanks to the folks at trillfit for inviting me to this event.
Oh the life of an urban pet owner! We're blessed to have found an amazing dog walker, Laurie, who makes being an urban pet owner so much easier. Laurie or her daughter take Maggie every weekday so Eric and I don't have to worry about her during the day. Maggie is often gone for over two hours, and she ends up exploring parts of the city and the 'burbs that Eric and I have never seen.Read More
I've been on the hunt for the perfect white t-shirt for a while now. In the past, I've found many shirts were too sheer or too thin, requiring an extra tank top layer underneath just to be worn in public. This was definitely not ideal.Read More
Lately, I've found myself gravitating toward the same makeup most days of the week. While my bathroom cart is brimming with products, I tend to grab the above items on a daily basis to achieve a bright-eyed, simple look. Bonus: it takes less than 5 minutes.Read More
Ah, pet ownership. Sometimes it can be hard, especially when living in the city, but it's so worth it! As a city gal, I don't have a dog door or a big, fenced in yard to let Maggie play in all day. We walk Maggie in the morning and evening and she spends time with her (wonderful) dog walker during the day. She makes friends at the local dog hotspot, the arboretum, enjoys getting treats and "dog water" at local businesses and has become a favorite among the neighborhood kids.Read More
Stitch Fix, a personal stylist in a box service, is now offering petite and maternity clothing! While I was a fan of the company before (one of my go-to pairs of jeans is from them, as is the lavender tunic in my profile picture), I often found that the clothing they sent was simply too big.Read More
