what I made.

You wake up, pour a cup of coffee, go to work, do stuff. You don’t always realize what you’re creating unless you start out with the intention to do so. It wasn’t until I spent a #selfcareSaturday cozy in bed, in need of a healthy soup that I realized all the creative potential I’ve been tapping into lately.

Spring things.

Before I go any further I think I should make it perfectly clear that spring has yet to arrive in Boston. We’ve had a few days that broke sixty degrees but I have yet to put away all of my cashmere. To encourage the sun to come out and play, I’ve rounded up a few things to sip, shop, eat & get inspired by!

Pin-spiration: Boston Style Bloggers

Recently I took a quiz inquiring about my sources of inspiration. Given the options, I realized that some of the best moments of style envy and creative sparks come from none other than my fellow Boston-area bloggers. Lucky for you, these ladies have some great Pinterest boards so you can get to know them and what they love too.

Things are about to get Pinterest-ing.

“Tell Yourself You Love It”

It’s been a crazy week but if there was ever an expression I needed to hear as my leg muscles threatened to give way mid-plié, this was it. After all, barre isn’t just for the fitness fanatic or the well-conditioned dancer, it’s for anyone looking for variety and a full body workout. I knew what I was getting myself into but my experience at FlyBarre recently was much more than your average visit to the studio.

I promise you that the workout you get is as fantastic as this hat I received after my class.

What To Wear When: Winter Weather

The coffee has been sipped, banana pancakes enjoyed and a portly little snowman sits at the top of my driveway. Winter storm Juno has officially taken residence in Massachusetts and I’m cozy inside with all of my favorite things.

Oh, the weather outside is delightful.

Brand Insider: Moda VoxBox

A while back I shared the inside scoop on what it’s like to be an insider on new products via Influenster. (It’s kind of like getting a peek at presents before Christmas!) My most recent experience was just as fun and featured a few new products I had never heard of before.
