August is adventure month over at DogVacay, and they've asked me to share a fun #dogventure with you. The best part about our dogventure? It all takes place in Boston! Our dogventure gave Maggie the opportunity to do some training, have some fun and meet new friends.
Hey Boston ladies (and gents)- what are you doing this Thursday August 7th? If you can sneak out of work for a hot second, head over to H&M on Newbury Street any time between 10-12 to celebrate their grand re-opening!
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
Yesterday, I had the pleasure of joining a group of Boston based bloggers at the newly reimagined Michaels in Saugus, MA. The store is just one of 27 Boston-area stores that are unveiling a new look this weekend.
In the past, I found Michaels to be a little crowded and confusing- they had so much great stuff, but it was often hard to find. The folks at Michaels must have felt that way to, because the new layout is more open and the aisles are wider. Plus, there's colorful signage throughout the store to help you navigate your way. Can't find what you're looking for on your own? All Michaels employees will now be wearing red, so they're easier to spot. Read More
This past Sunday, Eric and I attended Eat Boutique's Spring Pop Up in Somerville. It was held in a large, open room where tables were set up and filled with all kinds of delicious foodstuffs made by small distributors. 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
This past weekend, I had the pleasure of taking a shopping trip with the fabulous Georgina of Notes on Lifestyle by Georgina. Though we'd met briefly in the past and chatted via email and Twitter, we had yet to actually spend a ton of time together. The Trip to Wrentham Village Premium Outlets is about 45 minutes to an hour, so I figured a long car trip would be the perfect time to get to know each other. Read More
One of the best things about living in Roslindale is that we're so close to everything! Whether we're looking for a place to eat, a place to shop or somewhere outside where we can hang out with Maggie, there are lots of different options for us to choose from. Read More
We had such a blast hanging out at Assembly Row in Somerville this past Saturday. Not only were we able to enjoy the ASSEMBLED arts market, we also got to see the Dock Dogs in action (think olympic-style long jumping for dogs). Read More
Last week, I had the opportunity to attend a pre-opening press event at the new Sperry Topsider store at the Natick Mall. If you haven't heard of Sperry, it's a New England- based brand best known for their preppy boat shoes.
Though I've lived in Massachusetts for almost 6 years (wow, has it really been that long?), I actually don't own a pair, so it was really fun to tour the store and get a little background on the brand. Read More
