SLEIGHING Christmas 

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and got to spend time with family and friends. I definitely had some trouble getting into the Christmas spirit this year, my finals didn’t end till the 20th and I have been working crazy hours, but it was a great day. I got a beautiful coat from  J. Crew, new shoes and an awesome vest! It was our puppy Walter’s first Christmas he got a whole bunch of toys and had so much fun running around all day. What was the best part of your Christmas? 


Tucker Blair Showroom and Gift Guide

Tucker Blair has always been one of those companies that I obsess over, they are so classic and preppy, how could you not love them? You may not know that their showroom is tucked right in Beacon Hill. This week I had the opportunity to visit the showroom and check out some of their latest products. Tucker Blair has traditionally done Men’s accessories but have really expanded their selection for women. I am so excited about their new Ladies Blair Wallets, these are so perfect and would make a great gift for any girl in your life.

 I am in love with this banana leaf wallet! I encourage all the ladies out there to put this at the top of your Christmas list!

Tucker Blair is such a fantastic company! They truly believe in quality above all else and they really care about their customers. I was so happy to check out the adorable show room they have here in Boston.

Needlepoint accessories are a staple in any preppy closet. Need some stocking stuffers? Pick up a Needlepoint Keychain! I got the red Labrador keychain to match my puppies. One of the first Tucker Blair items I ever owned was a needlepoint sunglasses strap. With so many fun patterns these make another great stocking stuffer for anyone.

Merry Christmas everyone, I hope there is something from Tucker Blair under all your trees Christmas morning.

Magical Christmas with L.L. Bean 

Every year right before Christmas my boyfriend Mike and I head up to Maine to close up the cabin for winter and do a little Christmas shopping in Freeport. Freeport is home to the flagship L.L. Bean store, I love to shop at a lot of different places but L.L. Bean is the my number one. They have everything for everyone, the quality never disappoints, and their customer service is unmatched. I was able to get some Christmas shopping done and we stoped for dinner at Linda Bean’s Topside Tavern. 

L.L. Bean gets decked out every year for Christmas, this year they went bigger than ever. 100 Christmas trees all lit up, a reindeer barn, and a northern lights show inside an igloo! It was magical, if you are having any trouble getting into the Christmas spirit visit L.L. Bean they do Christmas better than anyone!
