My Boston Favorites…

January 15th, 2014

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!

And Here We Go Again….

January 14th, 2014

We have started the process of picking finishes and getting bids on our phase two renovation and addition on our house. This one is gonna be a DOOZY as it’s a big, expensive (to me) job but one that takes this house from being livable to truly functional and enjoyable for us.  Don’t get me wrong, I adore my kitchen and new bathroom but having ONE full bathroom is NOT my idea of awesome. We plan to knock down our garage with it’s bizarre bedroom above (that you access through a teeny Hobbit sized half door) and rebuild a new garage with a master suite above, turning Andrew’s office into the master bathroom AND adding a mudroom, pantry and laundry room off the kitchen. HEAVEN!!!!

But back to the bathroom- I’ve started plotting and planning and am pretty sure I’ve nailed down the look I want. This is a SMALL master, and since we never take baths we’re opting for a big walk in shower instead of a tub/shower combo seeing as our current full bath/ soon to be guest bath has a tub if need be.  I am thinking this time I’ll go with brass.  I just love the richness and warmth and we already have a chrome/Cararra marble bath so why not mix it up a bit?

I have been madly in love with Walker Zanger’s Helsinki floor tile forever. And since it’s a small floor I am hoping I can afford to use this in there. It’s stunning. Pairing it with a grey vanity, white Caesarstone top (no more stains!) and two recessed sinks I think I’ll be a happy gal.  I looooooooove these Restoration brass rivet medicine cabinets, especially when paired with these Crate & Barrel sconces.

The shower will be simple with white beveled subway walls with white grout and white penny tile floor with darker grey grout (hides grime).  AHHHH, I’m getting so damn excited now!

Golden Globes 2014 Red Carpet Recap

January 13th, 2014

I friggin’ love the Golden Globes. Despite the horrid red carpet coverage (more fashion, less inane questions from Seacrest and Rancic pretty please) it was a fun show to watch. If I could go to one awards show in my lifetime it would be this one (can we make that happen universe? Mmmm, thanks.)  The fashion was a fab balance of AWESOME and HORRID, which is my favesies.  Let’s start with the straight up awesome.

Who didn’t gasp when they saw Lupita Nyong’o in Ralph Lauren. I mean, she SLAYED it so hard in that dress with the simple jewels. I bet half the celebrities asked if they could just come int he back door after she walked the carpet. Amazing.  And Cate Blanchett is such perfection. This dress is just amazing on her.  Here’s the thing, men don’t “get” Cate Blanchett, Andrew doesn’t think she’s pretty, which makes me think I’ve married a severely mentally questionable person.

Leslie Mann either has amazing style or a seriously awesome stylist. I LOVED her dress, hair and makeup. Gorgeous. And Juliana Margulis was stunning- beyond chic- I loved the silhouette, pattern and her accessories and jewels. Killer.

Amy Poehler’s dress is just awesome- sexy without being over the top and super modern. Loved this look.  And at first I wasn’t sure about Amy Adams’ dress but then she turned around and I loved it.  I wasn’t 100% on the hair, but she really did look pretty and it’s so nice to see her in color.

These two. I mean, can we just discuss how awesome they are? Smart, funny as hell, successful AND beautiful??? I think they are two of the best role models in Hollywood for women.

Fashion Friday: Work It Out

January 10th, 2014

I know it’s so cliche to be all “let’s get in shape!” as a New Years resolution, but there is a reason it’s such a popular thing to do.  After the gluttonous holidays and, if you’re like me, the craziness of the end of the year in which working out falls by the wayside, it’s a line in the sand. A fresh start. I for one have promised myself to get back to yoga and try barre classes.  So far this month I’ve done a bit of that, but moreso I’ve made myself go to the gym at least three days a week.  Even when I don’t want to (i.e. last night) I tell myself I’ll feel so much better if I do. And I do! And for extra motivation I’m picking up some new workout stuff.  After the whole Lululemon scandal I’ve been looking for alternative vendors for cute, well fitting workout gear and have found a super awesome selection at Nordstrom.  So here are my top picks to put a little spring in your step as you kick off your new workout regime (or maintain it, if you’re awesome like that.)
