A “More Awesomer” Kind of Week

With summer coming to a close, the temperatures cooling down & the days gradually becoming shorter, you would think that this summer girl would be finding plenty of reasons to be bummed out. On the contrary, I’ve packed this last week with so many amazing activities and memories that I can’t wait to share.

One of my favorite benefits of blogging is that I get to meet and collaborate with other creative individuals. Such was the case last Thursday when I finally connected (in person) with the beauty and brains behind More Awesomer. Aside from featuring great posts on everything from vegan cooking to summer playlist ideas, Lindsey is a genius behind the lens, capturing some great shots of me in the Public Garden. In case you missed them on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram & Tumblr, here a few of my favorites:

Following my shoot downtown, I headed to Tremont 647 where I played “plus 1” to a friend at a college alumni event and met owner, Andy Husbands. There I sampled passed hors d’oeuvres plates of tuna tartare, cornbread, vegetable fritters and chilled shrimp. If these morsels were any indication, I’ll definitely be back for seconds (and maybe thirds) very soon!

This past Friday was the moment of truth for anyone who has been following The Boston A-List this year. I am proud to announce that after 68,600+ total votes, 30 nominees in my category & thanks to the support of readers like you, A City Girl’s Guide To Life came in FIFTH PLACE as Best Fashion Blog in Boston. Honestly, I was so shocked and humbled that this could happen after just two years of blogging that I (once again) want to thank everyone who voted, has been following me on social media or has ever read a post for being a part of this truly wonderful week, month and journey. I have the best friends, family & fans a girl could ask for!
