Michael's Grand Re Opening

The Grand Re-Opening of Michaels

Typically I wouldn’t describe myself as a shopaholic, but all bets are off when I step into a Michaels (Kyle can attest to this). I make pilgrimages almost weekly to the Porter Square or Braintree store and always come away with more than I intended to buy. I’m already in love with Michaels, but all of their Boston […]

Shop Dreams

Only a handful of people in my life know that my biggest dream is to have a shop of my own…but I decided it might be time to share. I have long envisioned the space (cozy but chic) with lots of curated nooks and beautiful decor and window displays. There are a number of big […]

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 […]

Niche South End

Niche Urban Garden Supply Store

New to the South End is Niche Urban Garden Supply! Owner and landscape architect Lindsey Swett opened up shop on Tremont Street back in May. I stopped in about 2 weeks after she opened (and have been horribly delinquent in posting the photos I took). The shop is adorable and has everything from plants, herbs, […]

A Tour of the Restoration Hardware Flagship Store in Boston

The new RH Boston: The Gallery at the Historic Museum of Natural History is now open! Today’s post is a photo tour of the store for those of you who haven’t gotten the chance to venture in yet. The photos don’t do the flagship location justice, and I promise you it’s 100% worth it to […]

Union Square Donuts

Union Square carries wildly inventive flavors like Maple Bacon, Cherry Hibiscus, Chocolate Chipotle, and Brown Butter Hazelnut Crunch. In my experience, their […]

Restoration Hardware Opening Boston

Restoration Hardware Opening Party

Yes, it’s true the opening of the Restoration Hardware Boston Flagship store was an absolute mob scene tonight but the space is stunning and definitely warrants a trip back. We were lucky to arrive right when doors opened (and make a beeline for the bellinis). This was one of the only pictures I could snap before it […]

Alternative Valentine’s Day Arrangements with Winston Flowers

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
