Last week, on June 10th, officially marked 12 years since my husband and I first went on our first date and shared our first kiss. Now that…
I’m a huge nerd when it comes to theme parties, especially ones based on my favorite books, TV shows, and movies. When you really get into the spirit with “live action role play” (LARP) through costumes, decor, or cuisine, it just adds another whole level of enjoyment to favorite stories and characters.
Yes, I’m one of those people: the thirtysomethings who devoured the Divergent books and couldn’t get enough. But this isn’t the part where I critique the series. It *is* where I share my love for Shailene Woodley as a human being and as a beacon of hope for her generation.
I know I sound like a spoiled brat, but as a New England fan, for the first time in years I don’t know who to cheer on in the Super Bowl today. Even though it’s been a long time since I really cared about football (I’m more of a basketball & hockey girl), it still feels weird. Luckily, the thing I’ve always looked forward to the most is the Puppy Bowl.
I’m officially saying goodbye to all our CDs this weekend, and though it feels like the end of an era, the ease and portability of music without the clutter — and the ability to have playlists for parties or road trips readily on hand wherever I may roam — is well worth the $10/month.
When I was a kid, I sprung awake with anticipation of the paper’s arrival on Sundays like most kids on Christmas morning — it meant the best comics of the week had arrived. Now, I’m rounding up a few of the things that made me go “awwww” and LOL each week — hoping they make you smile, too.
Now that Halloween has come and gone, I’m starting to get really excited about the holidays — and freaking out about getting a jump on DIY holiday gifts, especially things like infused liqueurs and other projects that need to be made more than a month ahead. Enter: InstaCraft.
Oh, ladies. What, oh what, have we done to Halloween — and our self-esteem.
Last night, we made the amazing decision to go to the Alamo Drafthouse “Spaceballs Quote-A-Long” — one of my absolute favorite 80s movies from my childhood — and I was inspired to put together this party planner so you can enjoy it, too.
One of the things that makes me the most homesick, the most regretful about missing fall in Boston this year, is not being there for the grand opening of my friend Abby’s new vintage cookbook & cookwares store Farm & Fable, which debuts to the delight of Boston foodies in the South End at the end of this month.
