I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! I definitely had a great weekend that was quite busy! I have so much to share! This weekend I really made an effort to start getting up earlier and enjoying the day. I love to sleep but, it’s really great to get up early on a Saturday and get things done. So, to start my Saturday morning I went to a new gym called Barry’s Bootcamp. And, my goodness it was a wake up call. It’s a class that will definitely whip you into shape! This class is treadmill to weights, treadmill to weights. It’s wild! Stop in for a class! It will definitely wake you up any morning. Men and women welcome! You will sweat any food sins out within seconds!
After the gym I headed out to fill these wonderful Marc Hall Objekt wall vases with some fresh flowers. Aren’t they amazing! I also, decided to share a selfie with you of my date night outfit with my husband. I am really into the boyfriend jeans now a days. These Current/Elliott ‘The Traveler’ Boyfriend Jeans (Tallahassee)are the best! They are super comfy! The embellished collar on my Milly sweater isn’t to outrageous and over the top. This sweater goes with anything, its a great transition piece into Spring. If we ever see spring here in Boston…its freeing today. I also am loving the metallics this year. I wear these BCBGeneration ‘Zahara’ Pump quite frequently with dresses, jeans, black pants, really anything.
Date night was to a really good Mexican Restaurant, Casa Romera right off of Newbury Street. It was quite a busy spot, right down an ally.
To end the weekend! Guilty Bakery and Boston Cake Pops made amazing treats to celebrate my father’s birthday!
There are so many babies that are arriving this spring, including my sister’s first bundle of joy. We can’t wait! I have been doing some shopping around and I have found some of the cutest baby attire ever! I am very new to this, only having fur babies which we love…and my goodness there are so many cute things out there for babies. Here are a few of my picks! Click on pics to get! xoxo
I must admit, I really am not a big drinker. But, I am always fascinated by the new flavors of vodka that seem to be coming out all the time. So, I was curious about Smirnoff’s Marshmallow Vodka, what could I do with this? Emily, a friend of mine and a drink connoisseur always has fabulous and healthy cocktail ideas. I borrowed a few of her ideas and came out with a fresh strawberry cake martini! You must try it out.
1oz of Marshmallow Vodka
A handful of Wyman’s of Maine frozen strawberry’s ( you can put these in whole or muddle them once thawed)
A splash of soda water
Shake and there you go! You have a Strawberry Cake Martini just in time for spring
You can add a fresh strawberry on the side to top it off or a Pink Bunny Peep for Easter to top it off!
All about Men!
So I had coffee with a great friend of mine and he always asks me what are men wearing today? Well, I do almost all of the shopping and dressing in our house. My husband goes along with it, and always loves when he gets compliments on what he is wearing! That’s how I keep my credibility with him! So here are a few things for the MEN! If you are looking for a great gift or even if you are looking for a really nice men’s skin set, check out Jack Black. If you click on the picture, you will find out where to get it. This Jack Black set is great for travel and everyday use. Give it try! My husband is addicted to the products. I also love Burberry for men. This Burberry sweater is on sale now in a few colors and it’s a great transition piece from spring to summer. I really like the Burberry print detail down to the zipper. It’s also a great yearlong quality piece. Click on the picture and get it soon, they tend to sell out fast when on sale. To top it off, check out the sleek Gucci 63mm Aviators. They are great for the summer days on the beach or boat! Very fashionable! Lastly, Valentino just came out with an amazing spicy smelling Italian bergamot fragrance. The bottle is amazing and so is the smell. I just purchased a bottle today for the husband! Click on pic to get yours to! More men things soon!
New York Eats Day 2-Best Greek in Midtown
If you are looking for an exceptionally wonderful Greek restaurant in New York please stop by Molyvos. We love Greek food and every time we go to New York we try to expand our horizons and try out different ethnic restaurants. Molyvos is Greek food with an amazing wine list from all over Greece. We had a wonderful dinner! My husband had some of the best lamb chops for his meal and I had an amazing chicken dill soup with a side of everything bean salad. We went a little overboard to start our meal with some very good Greek wine and an array of hummus and sheep’s milk cheese for a starter. I was full before we decided what we wanted for dinner! Try it out next time you are in NYC, I promise you will not be disappointed! Enjoy the day! Happy first day of Spring!!
Zella Wish List for Spring!
As I have mentioned before, I really do love the Zella clothing line. The clothes are so comfy to run errands in, or go to the gym or a nice walk or run outside. I love the spring colors that are coming out in the Zella capris, especially these that I have posted. I have my eyes on them with this comfy looking white wrap top. Click on the pics to get your own! I am hoping Boston will be warming up this weekend! I am so ready for long walks and runs with the pups outside.
We have this great wine and spirits store in Boston called Brix Wine Shop. This place is amazing! They have a ton of great wines, that are all hand picked and tasted by the owners themselves. When you walk into a Brix Wine Shop you feel at home. The customer service is superb, the store is immaculate and the wines are neatly placed from wall to wall. If you haven’t had a chance to stop in at the Financial District store or at the South End store, definitely go to one of their tastings that they have weekly. At the Financial District location tonight they are having Mystic Brewery come in for a tasting! My husband and my girlfriends love the tastings, you get to taste a wide variety and then you know what you like and what you don’t like. We have really expanded our wine fridge over the past month! And we couldn’t be more pleased by our purchases. One of my most favorite wines I have bought is the Travaglini Gattinara. I am not the best at describing the wine I drink, but this one is definitely a full bodied wine with a smooth finish. You will taste the flavors of red raspberries and cherries with a slight hint of vanilla. It goes great with a nice steak or a pesto pasta dish! I actually love to drink it with anything!!! This summer when we head to Nantucket we will definitely by heading to the Brix Wine Shop Nantucket as well, I hear that they have some great summer choices for the beach and barbecuing. What is your favorite wine and spirits shop in Boston? I would love to hear your feedback! Enjoy the day!
New York Beauty Stop
I had to share the products that I picked up at Henri Bendel New York. If you haven’t been into Henri Bendel’s in NYC, please stop in next time you are in NYC. It has tons of jewelry, makeup, bags, scarfs and much more. I always find the most unique things here to take home with me. I actually had no intention of buying any skincare or make up this time, but I came across a serum that made me glow and also took away my puffy eyes and dark circles that come with age! I have been using Trish McEvoy Beauty Boost Eye Serum since last Friday and I notice a difference from the moment I put it on. The serum absorbs quickly and the puffiness for me has decreased. I really am liking it much more than my daily eye cream. I also bought Trish McEvoy Beauty Booster serum for my face. I really love this! It absorbs very quickly so I can put my sunscreen over it and what I like the most is it gives me a glow all day and keeps my skin moisturized. I have seen an improvement in the texture of my skin as well, its very smooth. These are just my findings that I wanted to share. I really like the product and love to give my feedback on what works for me and what doesn’t. Give it a try! Click on the picture to get!
New York Eats, Day Two!
As you know, my second favorite thing about NYC is the restaurants! We had some fabulous meals this time around. For brunch we wanted to go to New York Magazines Best of NY burger. I absolutely love a good burger and I think I definitely will be going back to Montmartre on 8th ave. It’s a quaint little restaurant that has this fantastic burger for $19! All dry aged beef, bearnaise cheese, spinach and pomme frites. Take a look at the menu, they have tons of options for everyone! It’s a must go to place next time you are in NYC. But get there early, there seems to be a line always! Enjoy the day!
I’m back! And what a week it was in New York city. Lots of shopping, eating, and walking around the city. My husband even completed the New York half marathon. We had a really great trip to my favorite city. I have lots of fun things to share with you this week from my trip. The first day we got to New York my hunt began to find the crop top. Everywhere you look from stores to magazines is the crop top with a skirt or pants. I wasn’t sure about this look for me. I mean, I am in my thirties…am I to old for this look? So after running all over Bergdorf’s I decided the heck with it. I’m going to try this fad out! And I really do love it. You don’t have to expose all of your tummy. Believe me, I didn’t! What do you think? This is an Alice & Olivia top with a Tibi skirt. Below you will find another alternative that is much more affordable. Click on pic to get it!
