[Handpicked: August 2016]

Summer sure flew on by. This was my first summer in Boston, and I’d been waiting to see what would make it memorable. I wanted to get a head start on my Boston Bucket List (more to come on that) but summers are for relaxing, sometimes procrastinating, on everything. Let’s avoid our responsibilities together. Stingray BodyArt Being […]

Chi-Town Freedom [read: weekend trips just got a big upgrade]

Who managed to get to Chicago, attend an engagement party, and come back to Boston in 2 days? Oh, yours truly. It makes me feel so grown-up to fly out to Chicago for a weekend. The NYC weekend trips are great and all, but this requires a little more planning than a spontaneous bus ticket […]

Around the Sun, Once [read: 1-year]

It’s a little over 365 days around the sun because I’m late, as always, but let us wish [Read:Twenty-Something] a very happy birthday! I started this blog back in Cambridge, wishing something new would walk right into my life this year and realizing that I had to make it happen. It took the direction of […]

[Handpicked: July 2016]

Those of you who aren’t in the Northeast, consider yourselves blessed and lucky. Heat waves are no lie. They’re so true, in fact, that an 80 degree day required 3 outfit changes at the very least as the heat escalates throughout the day. So, this month, let’s cool off. Pavement Coffeehouse, Iced Green Mint Tea […]

21st Birthday [read: we’ve moved to Birthday Weekend status]

And to think 20 was where it all began. From birthday to birthday, we’ve upgraded to birthday weekend status this year. The big 2-1. Still not really sure how I feel about it. As much as I’d like to say I’m old and irrelevant, I’d say my friends did a pretty good job ignoring that […]

Bob Dylan Needs No Introductions [read: return to Tanglewood]

You ever have those weekends with friends when you realize the real way to maximize your time together is to literally spend every waking (and sleeping) moment together? It just makes it easier. Cuts out the middle man, the 15 minute walk back to grab clothes, the individual need for space. Sharon, an avid reader […]

On a Tiny Continent [read: return to Manhattan]

I had to take the bus. I’m not the happiest when it comes to buses, so my return to Manhattan on a bus fell a little short of the homecoming I’d wanted to have. The real homecoming, though, was with the most famous of French models over one of their (belated) birthdays. Yes, Lela back […]

Tangled in a Wood [read: just Tanglewood]

Remember my favorite vacation pastime? Looks like we’ve found another 3 favorite B’s to go with that Thanksgiving set of 3 B’s. And that is: Beach Boys. Berkshires. Becky. This weekend, I had the honor of going on a trip to Tanglewood, the summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra (BSO) whose year-round home is a block from […]

Fashionable Friends [read: really just fashionable Lela]

Summers in Boston mean being exponentially closer in distance to my friends in NYC than summers in Sarasota. Which means grabbing your weekender and getting on a cheap bus, starting with Lela! This past weekend she made the trek from NYC for a total of two, get ’em, two days. As you know, Lela is […]

Shuffling Summers [read: where am I?]

[read: currently in Boston, previously in Sarasota, that’s the clear answer] Here’s the longer one – moving back and forth so much in the past month had me taking a break and reconsidering a bunch. Like a lot. Never fear, though, I’m here to catch you up on the happenings of the past month! Leg […]
