wachusett brewing company

After a long day skiing at Wachusett Mountain in Princeton, Mass this past Saturday, we couldn’t leave town without a quick stop to the Wachusett Brewery. Wachusett happens to brew my most favorite blueberry beer– I do have rankings for my blueberry beers– and it was so fun to tour the brewery three friends started years ago after leaving their engineering day jobs. New England, you never cease to impress me.

Nemo has come and gone. It wasn’t all fun + games but we survived and even got to enjoy some snowy playtime once the blizzard winds died down :) Hope you all stayed safe + warm throughout the storm!

English Rose

I’ve become a huge coffee drinker over the past few years, but I can’t resist an adorable tea room. These are shots from English Rose Tea Room, which I stumbled upon while visiting Carefree, Arizona, and has become known as the finest tearoom in the Southwest.

As usual, I’m always on the hunt for more tearooms to visit. I’m back in New England now, so send more local suggestions my way! xx

Mario Testino

From Kate Moss to Kate Middleton, this fashion photographer has captured quite the array of celebrities. His two exhibits, Mario Testino: British Royal Portraits and Mario Testino: In Your Face, are currently gracing the gallery walls of Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts, and frankly, I can’t figure out what took me so long to get there. You all know I love a good royal family portrait, and the provocative In Your Face was nothing short of amazing. Emma Watson, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Gisele? Come on now, it was almost too good to be true.

Kayla attended last month’s premiere and rubbed elbows with quite a few faces you may recognize, including Anna Wintour, Giselle, and a certain Mr. Testino himself. Check out the interview for a glimpse of this glamour before you make your way to the exhibit…

The British Royal Portraits will be on display until June 16, 2013, but the fashion photography will be there only until February 3rd. If you’re close enough, run– don’t walk– to the MFA. And as if you need extra motivation, it’s free Wednesday nights after 4 pm :)

Darling, it’s a Lilly!

in the pink newbury instagram

On Saturday, Lilly Pulitzer Rousseau celebrated her 81st birthday, and Lilly lovers around the country celebrated as well. I stopped by Newbury Street’s In the Pink just long enough to fall in love with the entire store and toast to Lilly and the pink + green brand you can’t help but feel happy wearing. To learn more about Lilly herself, I highly suggest Kathryn Livingston’s Lilly: Palm Beach, Tropical Glamour, and the Birth of a Fashion Legend. I’m only a couple chapters in and am already in love.

A Cambridge Fall

harvard square t station

I remember being quite young and reading an article in some teen magazine or another about the coolest college campuses. Harvard University was on that list, due in large part– I’m sure– to the preppy-meets-hipster sanctuary that is Harvard Square. I spent this past unseasonably warm Saturday strolling between the Square and the Charles River, where The Head of the Charles Regatta was taking place– an October tradition I’ve tried to make a point to come to since I first moved to Boston. Clam chowder, pumpkin beer, and old fashioned sarsaparilla were enjoyed. I do recommend it.
