Yep, the craze that’s probably consumed your New York City and California friends is making it’s way to Beantown- actually, my neck of the woods,  in Chestnut Hill Square come March! And they have asked me to host an opening weekend class to give a bunch of you the chance to try it out for free!  We’ll be riding Saturday March 8th at 9:30 a.m. so if you want to come and watch me pant (and perhaps pass out) on a bike, leave a comment below (please input your email address where it asks) and the first 30 of you to post will join me for a FREE Soul Cycle class!

A Winning Inn

Thursday, February 6th, 2014

I love a good boutique inn and was delighted to see these images of a new one in my neck of the woods (kind of) called the Inn at Hastings Park in Lexington, MA.  The decor is modern Americana reflecting the historical town, with each room decorated a bit differently. Take a peek at the cute rooms and details:

Local Love: Priley Lane

Wednesday, January 22nd, 2014

I love sourcing goods from local companies, and recently we discovered a new Boston based furniture Priley Lane that we have fallen in LOVE with.  These transitional pieces are all customizable- you choose the finish (a variety of lacquers, grasscloth, linens, skins or wood stains) and even different metal feet, nailheads and other details! It’s so fun!

Love this coffee table done in lacquered grasscloth in a natural color…

These amazing modern dressers remind me of some MUCH more expensive ones I’ve seen. I may have to use these in my new master bedroom!

I get SO many requests from you guys for recommendations for places to eat, see, shop and visit while in Boston so I decided to start a Pinterest board mapping my most favorite spots in my fair city for you to reference while visiting! I’ll be updating it all the time this year so bookmark it (or follow me) to see my picks!

Three New Boston Shops of Note

Tuesday, December 3rd, 2013

I’ve been so busy finishing up the book that I feel I’ve not had a second to just take time to explore what’s happening in the city these days. I think next weekend I’ll spend a day wandering downtown and seeing what’s up.  What reminded me of this was the discovery of two new South End boutiques, Evolve Residential and Farm & Fable and one new bridal boutique on Beacon Hill, Ceremony.

Evolve’s retail shop is drop dead gorgeous and I cannot wait to pop in and see it soon- the grey walls and trim make me swoon pretty hard.

Farm & Fable is a vintage cookbook and kitchenwares shop with such a great look, no? Plus, check out the space they’ll be using for cooking classes! How fun!

Ceremony in Beacon Hill looks like the best place to spend a day trying on gorgeous gowns, no? And now there will be someone carrying my favorite bridal designer, Lela Rose, in our fair city! (Where were these guys 8 years ago when I was getting married?)
