What are you doing this weekend?

I am going back to Boston for the second time this month. This time is not to help move in my sister, but to see two of my very favorite people in the world. We are having a girls weekend full of talking, wine, walks, lobstah rolls and good fun. I am smiling just thinking about it!

Blueberry Panckes

I went to Chicago last weekend to visit some friends (pics to come). Among our many family meals throughout the weekend, we enjoyed blueberry pancakes after a night of too much drinking. Good Housekeeping (yes, I am plugging my magazine) has a great recipe for your next lazy but blissful morning. Mmm.

Happy First Day of Fall!

Today is officially fall. If you pay attention, the seasons are changing... the air is crisper and the trees are gorgeously vibrant. Start planning your pumpkin patch excursions!

All About the Butterflies

My colleague (and friend) Rachel and I went to the Vivenne Tam fashion show last weekend. The theme; the fusion of fashion and technology. A couple models clutched HP netbooks with Vivenne's signature butterfly design. The event and after party were a success! Watch the complete show here.

Spa Week

Starting today it’s Fashion Week in New York City. However, there’s another lesser known week this fall that offers more tangible benefits: Spa Week, running September 14-20 or October 12-18 depending on which state you call home.

Hosted by cities in 21 states, Spa Week is a bi-annual event in which spas across the country offer new customers $50 treatments ranging from peels to pedicures. Struggling to choose between a body wrap and Botox? No need to worry – you can make multiple appointments, and at $50 each you’ll still be getting a deal. Plan a girls night out and pamper yourself.
