Set for ALUM...

Got two cute things from Bobbles & Lace in Marblehead:
  • A really pretty blue strapless dress that has some underlying gold texture to it. $55
  • A yellow/green sleeveless tunic with gold embellishments around the neckline w/ a sash. $60
My friends mother owns the store so she always helps me find the cutest stuff & even stayed open late for me to try everything on!

Looking forward to the VA weather...

My chair just arrived!!!

A lot of people in my office have been using the Gaiam BalanceBall Chair and I decided it was time for me to get on one. Why not work on my posture & get a little work out while I spend the day at my desk? Hopefully after a few weeks i'll have tight abs
and perfect posture.

To Cape Town on a Pushbike...?

My cousin finally made it!!!!! From Northhamptonshire, England to Cape Town, South Africa! It took him over six months to cycle nearly 17,000km (10,563 miles) through 20 countries. Check out his blog for all of his amazing photos and wild stories.

"I've cycled under armed guard in Egypt, crossed deserts in Sudan, been harassed in Ethiopia, cycled through bandit country in Kenya and lion country in Tanzania. I've pimped myself out as a bicycle taxi in Mozambique, dealt with the financial woes of Zimbabwe and hyenas in Botswana. I've lived out one of my dreams."

Every Tuesday night my roommate N and my close friend A all come together and have "Supper Club" - or you could consider it "Wine Club" because it's always a large compliment to our delicious meals. We have been at it for about 17 weeks and are loving every minute. Watching each other make new dishes is educational, plus we get to talk and catch up about what has gone on in our lives for the past week. Tonight is my turn and I am making Petit Steaks w/ Mushroom-Sherry Sauce. I've never worked with Sherry so this will be a new feat - plus with all this dreary weather i think it will be a nice cozy-feeling meal. Ill let you know how it turns out!

Pub Club

Since my street hockey league has ended - my team decided we had to come up with a new activity and when we weren't kicking ass on the court we were at the bar - both before and after games.
Our mission is to go to a different bar each Thursday, with the condition that none of us has been there before. This may or may not be a challenge considering the abundance of bars in Boston but could pose a problem bc we are all very versed in the drinking scene. Last night was our first "Pub Club" night and we hit up Silvertone in Downtown Crossing. It was a lot of fun and definitely a place I will bring friends. So far so good Pub Club :)

Longest Kiteboarding trek in North America.

Back in May my brother Hunter and some of his fellow kiteboarders took a 100 mile trip from Charleston, SC to Myrtle Beach, SC. There was a large article in Kiteboarding magazine and now there is a film!

Is there anything my brother can't do? Now i just have to get him to teach me...

Cruising my way through advertising.

Advertising is a huge part my of life & everything about it fascinates me. I love to have a hand in what is going to be viewed by thousands of people and hope it will change the way people think. I like to push people in the right direction & make the viewer change... even if just for a second.

Edward Boches challenges every aspect of advertising. From new technology/social media that forces us to change the way we advertise to understanding that our mothers aren't ever going to understand how to use our MACs. Check it out...
