Anne Fontaine

Right now I am on the train heading to NYC for the weekend! I have very bad internet service but I wanted to share a great boutique, Anne Fontaine, that I stopped into yesterday. I am absolutely in love with this seasons looks from Anne Fontaine. Tons of whites, pastels, lace and beautiful flower belts and shoes. I picked up a lovely black lace top to bring with me to NYC. I will have to take some pics to share. Take a look at some of the items on my wish list below. I really have my eyes on the trench with the lace arms and flower belt. Gorgeous!!!! Enjoy the day! Image

Chia Seeds! Cinnamon-Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding

Chia seeds seem to be the new healthy fad out there now. I was at Whole Foods yesterday and I have walked by these Chia seeds for weeks and finally gave in and bought a bag of these babies! I am going to try to whip up some Chia pudding tonight before I head off to NYC. I hope its as yummy as it looks below. Do any of you have any Chia seed recipes I should try? Send them my way!

Cinnamon-Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding

Serves 2

1 cup non-dairy milk, any kind you like (I like plain, unsweetened almond milk)

3 tablespoons chia seeds

1-2 packets stevia (more or less to taste)*

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 small pinch sea salt

Stir together all ingredients in a small bowl; refrigerate until it reaches your desired thickness, stirring occasionally.  (I usually chill mine about 2 hours, but overnight is fine.)

*Instead of stevia, you can use any sweetener you like in this recipe, such as maple syrup, honey, etc.  Here is a guideline on how sweet 1 packet of stevia is:  the amount of stevia in 1 packet measures 1/2 teaspoon, which is about as sweet as 2 to 3 teaspoons of regular sugar.Image

Who wants chocolate? I do I do!




L.A Burdick

As you already know, I have quite the sweet tooth! Hence why I have brought on the help of the fitbit and Nike+ to make sure I am getting my steps in daily! I was on Newbury street yesterday, and I came across the cutest place to get coffee, tea, hot cocoa and homemade chocolates. I was in chocolate heaven! It’s called L.A Burdick and you can’t miss it. Lots of small tables inside to have your afternoon tea or coffee. It reminds me a little like Paris! Next time you are out and about on Newbury street stop in! And, I also wanted to share the chocolate mice we bought. They even have little tails!

What a night!

Thanks again to everyone who came out last night to support Nick and Team MR8! We are very grateful! It’s hard to raise money, but we did a great job and had a lot of fun. Thank you to all those who donated items to the raffle and the silent auction as well. We even had a very yummy cake from Guilty Bakery donated to enjoy as well.

I am absolutely exhausted from the weekend and getting the fundraiser together. I need a day to lounge around and I think I am making that day today! Here are some pics of all the weekend fun I didn’t get a chance to post. Our weekend started at Sam’s on the waterfront. If you haven’t been, its  a great spot in the summer to watch the boats and sit outside while enjoying a mojito or two. They have a great cocktail list, a vast list of different types of beers and great food. This is my go to spot all year round. After Sam’s we headed over to Strega on the waterfront to enjoy a yummy Italian meal. Thank goodness for Emily-she got there and saved us a table! That place is hopping at all times. Make sure you get a reservation! I posted some pics from our meal (stuffed pork chop and   Cod over gnocchi…yummy! Don’t worry my night didn’t stop there. We have wild little friend who wanted to keep the night going…I think I am becoming a Nana, I pushed myself to continue on our journey for the evening to another hot spot Row 34. Now, if you want to get some delicious fish and  craft brews this is a great place to try. What is your favorite dinner or drinks spot in Boston. I would love to try it out! Enjoy the day! It’s beautiful outside!

Marc Hall Objekt A Hidden Boston Gem in SOWA

This place is fantastic! If you are in Boston, please make your way over to Marc Hall Objekt. Even if you don’t buy anything, you will be amazed at all the beautiful pieces he has designed. I went on two shopping trips in one week! I bought two of those fantastic large glass candle sticks for our dining room. They are very grand and look great with Luminara candles in them. We also picked up a new stone pot, shown above,  for some greenery that desperately needed to be added to our condo.  I really wanted the ram head, at least I think it was a ram head. I thought it was very chic and cool, but I have to keep reminding myself we live in a condo in the city….NO ROOM, too much stuff!

Great flats for the spring!

Great flats for the spring!

I am finally cleaning out my closet and making some room for some new spring flats. I love these flats from Burberry! They are definitely on my wish list! I also really love the Sam Edelman “Becker” slip ons. These are great for doing errands or with a pair of jeans and a tee-shirt.  Click on pic for links! Enjoy the day…its almost time for the weekend!
