I am all about shopping local and shopping small. In the fall I headed over to the New England Made trade show to scope out some ideas for this holiday season. There is something for everyone: the foodie or the hostess, those who like something nautical or a little nostalgic. Take a look at my […]

I have to admit that Halloween is one of my most and least favorite holidays. I love the baking and the candy, but hate (dread) the dress up part. Halloween snuck up on me this year and I scrambled to get my kids their costumes – they were going to be whatever TJ Maxx had […]

Now that we don’t live in the city, I almost never get to the South End. I mean, when I WAS in the city, I barely got there… Leah and I met for lunch at Coppa (we had a Gilt City voucher to use), and I decided to drop in to some of my favorite […]

Good news for suburbia. Whole Foods just opened a new location in Sudbury on Saturday. The enormous new market opened with a bang – a bread breaking ceremony at 9:45 and the doors opening at 10. They gave out gift bags to the first 100 people in line, and I heard that by 9:25, there […]

Let’s be honest, 1 year olds don’t need party favors, but it is nice to have guests leave a party with a little something. La Doce is Boston’s first online boutique to offer Brazilian birgadeiros. They say they are a cross between a truffle and a caramel – these confections just melt in your mouth! […]

Located in Cambridge, a short walk from the Davis Square T station, is¬†Spindler Confections, a local artisan candy shop. They have a nice selection of chocolates, salted caramels, nut caramels, pate de fruits and brittles. Did you know that they have classes? Class 1 is called Chocolate! Chocolate! Chocolate! and you learn the basics of […]

It’s so fun to be turning 1!! The Go Local Boston gals and I put together a fun party for my little one who has a birthday right around the corner. If you’re looking for a traditional cake, The Icing on the Cake¬†is one of my top choices. Located in Newton, TIOTC is in their […]

I’m have to admit that Mother’s Day totally snuck up on me. Maybe my head has been in the sand, but all of the sudden I turned around and oh wait, Mother’s Day is THIS WEEKEND!! So, I checked in with my gal pals from Go Local Boston and we put together a few ideas […]
