100th Post

Wow, this is my 100th post on Katie From Boston. I started this blog as a way to express myself, I was feeling lost like I was floating aimlessly from day to day. I needed a creative outlet.

Hence the birth of this blog. It is not a particularly exciting or unique story, I know tons of bloggers who started because they needed a creative outlet. But today this blog is much more than a creative outlet to me. It has become a very important part of my life, the opportunities I have had, the friends I have made through blogging! The past 9 months, when I really threw myself into blogging, have been incredible. I promise to keep at it and to keep bringing you the best possible content and to always share my honest opinion.

So you tell me, what content do you want to see for posts 101-200? More travel? More food? Less of anything? What was your favorite post and what are you dying to know? Leaving me your questions, suggestions, comments, and criticisms in the comment section below.

And thank you for tagging along on this journey with me!


Preppy Accessories 

Adulting can be hard. But not all of growing up sucks, being in my own apartment I finally get to put my own unique style on my space. I have loved shopping for home decor, kitchenware, furniture etc.

Recently I stumbled upon Haymarket Designs. They make all kinds of monogrammed accessories. I love a good monogram! Affordable and perfect for your first apartment. Need to stock up for college? This is one stop for all your preppy accessories!

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.
