As I mentioned in a previous post, I've been trying to hit a goal of 10k steps per day over the past few weeks as part of the #Fit4Fall challenge with Planet Shoes. In the process, I've discovered a lot about my daily activity. I've found that when I work from home, I have to push myself extra hard to get up and hit the 10k, because I rarely leave the house. I often find myself walking in circles around the apartment just to hit my goal by the end of the day. When I go into the office, on the other hand, it's a lot easier to hit the 10k between getting there and taking lunch/coffee breaks.Read More ➛
Last night, I had the pleasure of attending a party celebrating the launch of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Massachusetts Bay's newest campaign, Chicks Dig Bigs, targeted at women. Did you know that there are over 800 boys currently waiting for a "big brother" in the Massachusetts Bay area? Apparently, marketing to men specifically to become big brothers isn't working fast enough, so the organization and their awesome agency decided to go to the real decision makers: women.Read More ➛
Just received a fun email from Nordstrom including a link to their Petite Fall Playbook, a look book geared specifically toward women 5'4" and under! I absolutely love the looks they came up with, many of them including pieces I didn't think I could pull off as a petite.Read More ➛
Last week, I told you about a really cool event at West Elm Fenway with Erica Domesek of P.S.- I Made This. Let me tell you, it was an absolute blast!
When I arrived at the store, I was given a white lacquer tray filled with art supplies and a copy of Erica's newest book, P.S.- You're Invited. I was the first to arrive, so I had a few minutes to make small talk with the nice people at West Elm and snap a few shots of the setup.Read More ➛
I had such an amazing time watching local celebrity Chef Ming Tsai cook up a storm at Macy's in Natick, MA. He made three healthy-ish dishes (I tried two but was unable to try the third because of allergies) that everyone in the audience loved. I learned so much from him in just a short cooking demo.Read More ➛
Maxxinistas rejoice! T.J. Maxx has FINALLY rolled out their e-commerce site. Though it doesn't seem like the brand has talked about it much (you'd think it'd be all over their social media), the site is definitely up!
I first discovered it yesterday via a tip from BeautyXpose on Facebook and could barely contain my excitement. Because the inventory at T.J. Maxx really varies by store, this will be a huge plus for many shoppers whose stores don't sell as many high-end, designer brands. If I've learned anything from living in New England, home of the TJX headquarters, it's that the merchandise can be completely different in stores just a few miles from each other.
T. J. Maxx's online store is currently offering items from their women's, shoe and handbag collections- sorry stylish gentlemen! Brands that jumped out at me were DVF, Marchessa, Cole Haan and Badgley Mischka, just to name a few.
Here are some of my favorite picks, available online. Hint: Hover over images for more details and price info, and click through to see on the T.J. Maxx website.
Now, raise your hand if you're excited? You know I am ;)
While I was initially hoping to do something like try a new fitness routine every week, I've decided I'll try something more realistic for someone who hates working out- a 10k steps a day challenge!Read More ➛
