What Kind of Shoe are You?

What kind of shoe are you??? Take this short quiz to find out- SHOE QUIZ


Just like the classic pump, you're smart, feminine, and sophisticated. Your friends are always coming to you, whether it's for your great advice or to raid your closet for the perfect little black dress. You shine in every area of your life, from work to play. You're never the loudest girl in the room, but you're no wallflower either - and you have no problem channeling your inner femme fatale when the time is right.

Restaurant Week Boston Winter 2009

The official Restaurant Week listing is out! Sooo exciting! I look forward to this twice a year, and when the list finally comes out, spend hours deciding just where to go.. For those unfamiliar with this great event- for 2 weeks in March and 2 weeks in August, restaurants in the Boston area offer Gourmet Prix-Fixe menus for a fraction of the price it would normally be to eat there.. $20.09 for lunch and $33.09 for dinner. This gives everyone a chance to eat at those great restaurants you wouldn't normally be able to afford. This March, Restaurant week will begin March 15 -20 and March 22- 27. Click HERE to see the list of participating restaurants and to make your reservations online.

I came across this great store online that is very similar to anthropologie, but half the price! I love love love Anthropologie, they have such original pieces. Every time I go to the store I want to buy EVERYTHING! Unfortunately my funds will not allow for me to do that. Tulle has the same clothing style, but allows for a shopper on any budget to shop there. If you look in their sale section, there are some great prices!

During my recent trip to the Burlington Mall, I made sure to hit one of its newest additions, ZARA. Similar to H&M, Zara has some really fabulous and trendy pieces that everyone can afford. Originally from Spain, Zara has stores all over the world, including 41 stores in the US. I was able to find a great black, wool, short- belted coat for only $29.99!!! What a great deal!

Boden USA

Last week I received a catalog in the mail from Boden USA. It had some interesting pieces- perfect for the summer or for a tropical vacation. The company started in the early 90s in England with just menswear. In 1994, they launched their womenswear line, and in 2002 they came to the US. What really caught my eye was the introduction page, written by the designer Johnnie Boden. And this brought a smile to my face on a cold winter's day.
"Choose your clothes as your would choose your friends.
The best tend to be warm, witty, and colorful.
Don't scrimp on olive oil, get the good stuff.
Avoid clothes that are worn today, worn out tomorrow-
trends will come and go (take jumpsuits).
Keep a corkscrew in your picnic basket.
Buy clothes because you like them.
They should help you feel as happy in your own skin as you were as a child.
Never stand behind a horse.
Make up your own mind.
Be yourself.
Never give up."
- Johnnie Boden

Alexander McQueen for Target!

Beginning in March, Target is set to kick off their new "Designer Collaborations" with McQ Alexander McQueen for Target, a version of his secondary line McQ. This will differ from Target's GO International, which focuses more on new designers.

What should we expect?? FabSugar predicts: Sweaters, skinny jeans, dresses, trench coats, swimwear, and blazers will be made in muted colors with bright accents.

Wahooo can't wait until March!! xox

Happy 50th Birthday Barbie!

This year Barbie will celebrate her 50th Birthday! WOW!! And so far that lucky girl is showing no signs of aging!

She took the world by storm, surprising skeptical toy critics at New York's Toy Fair in 1959. With her good looks, charm, and charisma, she won audiences over in record time. Soon, little girls across America, and later, the world, were singing her praises. In the coming years, both adults and children would collect her in record numbers. Today she remains one of the hottest selling toys in the world.

Being a product of the 80s and early 90s, I had many different Barbies... my favorites of course being the ones dressed in the neon clothes with the teal eye shadow.
Happy 50th Barbie! Wishing you more birthdays to come!!

Last year I was forwarded the website for EyesLipsFace... a make-up company that has almost everything for $1! Shocking I know! I was a little unsure of the quality of the make-up since I am used to spending waaaaaay more then $1 per item, but figured I would give it a try! Well 3 orders later, I LOVE the make-up! And have forwarded it to all of my friends. Check it out for yourself!

Definitely a *Must See*

What a great movie! With so many great cast members it is hard to go wrong, there is something for everyone. If you are in need of a good laugh or for just a fun girls' night out, this is the movie for you! The movie comes out in theaters this Friday!

And for all of you out there that have already read the book- the movie is still GREAT! ;)

I do also have to add what a fun pre-party was hosted at District. We of course were one of the first 100 people to arrive and received the all important "swag bag", which I must say was FULL of great stuff! Most exciting, a certificate for a free nights stay at the Liberty Hotel. I have been dying to stay at the Liberty! This hotel was opened in 2007, after undergoing a huge renovation as it used to be the Charles Street Jail. So I'm sure the hotel has some great character!

Go see the movie this weekend! xoxo
