Dram apothecary tasting room

Dram Apothecary

Every year at work we do a gift swap called “Secret Snowflake” and this season I pulled my friend Andrew’s name. He’s a fan of Manhattans so I decided to get him a set of bitters. I found exactly what I was looking for at DRAM Apothecary and I had to share some shots from […]

Fall DIY: Stamped Pumpkins

To celebrate the arrival of October, we’re featuring an incredibly easy (and somewhat sassy) fall DIY.

You only need 3 things to […]

Get Creative: Christmas Lights as Home Decor

It’s that time of year when the holiday decorations box gets pulled out of the closet so I can start to sort through everything.

Roses and boxed chocolates have long been the hallmarks of Valentine’s Day, but this year let’s shake it up a little! There are plenty of blooms beyond roses that signify romance. Guys, you will actually get credit for getting creative (and you can leave it to the professionals, you just have to know what to […]


6 Valentine’s Day Guy Gift Picks from Sault New England

While it’s very nice to “get” on Valentine’s Day, it’s just as fun to give. Guys can be difficult to shop for so I enlisted the help of Philip Saul, owner of Sault New England in Boston’s South End. He has curated his top 6 picks from the store that any guy would be lucky […]

Cocoanuts Boston

Chocolate Tasting at Cocoanuts

This past week I went to my first Blog & Tweet Meet-Up at Cocoanuts Boston, a chocolate and confection shop in the North End. On a chilly and windy January evening, the storefront looked extra inviting. We were welcomed by store owners Jen and Tara and event co-hosts, Jen Dorman of Boston Bachelorette and Kerrie […]
