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.

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.

As I write this, the wind is blowing outside and making me so very glad that I’m curled up with a warm mug of Trader Joe’s Matcha Green Tea Latte. Afternoons like this are made for cozy drinks, fuzzy socks & a little on-line shopping.

Today’s “Monday Must-Haves” features 30 things I’m loving this month, from the very vintage to the chic and cozy. I’ve compiled this list based on Nina Garcia‘s book, The One Hundred, and with the use of some very talented Tumblr blogs.

I’ve been having so many adventures lately! From exploring new spots downtown to staying cozy indoors with friends, I’ve made the most of the chilly days that have been lingering. That being said, I’m really looking forward to some springtime favorites!
Keep reading to see what I’ve been up to and what I can’t wait to do once the weather gets a little warmer!
For the past several months I’ve been very lucky to work and play in one of my most favorite parts of the city. Working on Beacon Hill has been such a treat and is super convenient when I want to visit some of my favorite places and people. Below are some of my favorite spots, new and old, for all of your friendly neighborhood adventures!
On weekends when I’ve been running around working hard, playing hard or just haven’t seen enough of my Dad, our Sunday morning dates to pick up fresh breakfast from Brooklyn Water Bagel is such a treat. The bagels from this spot are just as good as any spot I’ve been to in NYC (perhaps better, sorry Big Apple friends) and obviously I can’t beat the company. If you haven’t tried this place to start your morning off on the right foot, you must try it!
My campaign friends know that I go through kicks of feeling the need to spoil people I love with baked goods. This year, I’ve thrown quiche into my repertoire along with red velvet cupcakes, cookies and mini-cheesecakes. Baking feels especially important during the time of year when a little bite of something sweet makes for a great distraction for the cold. Check out some of my favorite recipes for all kinds of goodies here!
One of my favorite signs of warmer weather are the postings for Farmer’s Markets and farm openings. My favorite local spot makes lemonade with agave that is the stuff dreams are made of. From corn on the cob to kale, buying local feels great and is great for local businesses. Fun fact: It’s also better for you! (If you have a favorite farm stand, local CSA or market your frequent, share it with me by following me on Twitter!)
Every fashionista loves (and possibly lives) for the binge event that is an awards show and this year’s Academy Awards did not disappoint. After having bought a new top at Zara just hours before that could have been cut from the dress of the stunning Lupita Nyong’o, I was ecstatic to see that she walked away a very deserving awardee. Now if only I could catch up on all of those movies I seem to have missed!
Spring is a perfect excuse to pick up some some “must haves” for the new season. Whether you’re going on spring break or just need one, things that are still appropriate for the season are on sale and current styles are exactly what your wardrobe needs for a little pick-me-up!
Stay tuned for more of my adventures in the city and elsewhere and don’t forget to follow the blog on Facebook and Tumblr!
