Newport Holiday 

During the holidays it is so important to take some time and relax. Between finishing finals, work, and Christmas with the family it can be a super stressful time. My best friend Megan and I decided to do a girls weekend in Newport right before New Years just to get away and have fun! 


We toured the mansions all decked out for the Christmas, had lunch at Castle Hill Inn, and did a wine tasting and dinner at the Newport Vineyards. Newport is such a great place for a girls weekend and the history geek in me loves the colonial New England feel of the town. The mansions are always my favorite! We are already planning our spring girls weekend in Newport. 


I also got the chance to wear my new coat from J.Crew that I got for Christmas, it was so warm and cozy! My boat and tote from L.L.Bean is perfect I can toss everything I need for the trip in there but it is still small enough to carry around with me all day. My new Tory Burch boots that I got for birthday are so comfortable and are perfect for walking around. Tory Burch is having a big sale right now everyone should check out! 

I hope everyone had a wonderful New Years!! Thank you for all your support in 2016 I am excited to see what 2017 has in store.

Strolling into November

Some people love Halloween, they love getting dressed up, eating candy, watching spooky movies. I’m just not one of those people, I like Halloween okay but it isn’t my favorite. October may be the prettiest month of the year but November is definitely my favorite. For starters my birthday is this month, I’m going to be 22. I remember when I was 16 and I decided that 22 was old enough and I would stop aging at 22. As old as middle schoolers make me feel I still feel so young. There are still so many things I want to accomplish in life and 22 is just the beginning. November also means it is time for Thanksgiving, time to eat turkey, mashed potatoes, corn and stuffing! I am excited for the next month and I hope you are too.

Grand Finale 

“Fall has always been my favorite season. The time when everything bursts with its last beauty, as is nature had been saving up all year for the grand finale” -Lauren DeStefano
One of my favorite quotes! Best thing about fall in New England is that there isn’t just one peak weekend. There is a peak in northern Maine, New Hampshire, Boston, and southern Connecticut and Rhodes Island! If you’re willing to drive you can catch a couple of really great shows! We just about reached peak in Boston and it sure is beautiful! Took a stroll around Beacon Hill and the Public Gardens and stopped in at Tatte bakery for lunch.

Peeping Leaves and History

National Parks are often over looked, but they’re pretty awesome! For starters they’re FREE! And beautiful! Especially in this gorgeous season when the world turns gold for us. I visited the Minuteman National Historical Park this weekend to check out the foliage and all the adorable old farm houses that still stand in the park. There are great walking trails and plenty to see! Two visitor centers at either end of the trail, I recommend parking at the North Bridge Visitors Center, there is plenty to see from a gorgeous colonial house with a patio overlooking the Concord River and then you can walk down to North Bridge! I started at the Minute Man Visitors Center at the other end and saw the Jacob Whittemore House and then drove down Marrett Road stopping at the various attractions in the park, there are plenty of FREE parking lots along Marrett Road! Such a great day I definitely recommend you go visit before the foliage is gone!
