MBTA Personality Quiz

26 Jan

Happy Thursday!

I’m sure the burning question you all have today is: “if I were a T line, which one would I be?”  Am I right?  Well it’s your lucky day because this quiz will answer that for you!

I got the Green Line which evidently means I’m “fun and outgoing.”  Woo hoo!  The best part of the description is ” Even if you are usually running late, you are needed among your friends—you bring both eccentricity and entertainment to the group”  Anyone who has ridden the Green Line during rush hour knows just how eccentric it can be- and that’s putting it nicely!


Which T line are you?

The Bark Side

19 Jan

Now that the Packers are out of the playoffs, the things I’m looking forward to the most in the Super Bowl are the commericals! This one from Volkswagon is creative and adorable.

Check out all these doggies barking the Imperial March from Star Wars.  And keep your eyes peeled for Chewy and an AT-AT!

Sweater Weather

18 Jan

It’s been cold in Boston lately… -4 with wind chill last Sunday!  In other words, perfect sweater weather.  Many stores are having blowout sales to clear out winter merchandise, so it’s a great time to add to your winter wardrobe.

Here are some of my favorite finds:

Fun stripes and a cozy fit- perfect for snuggling by the fire!  On sale for $35 at Lands End Canvas.

This v-neck pink sweater is perfect for cheering up a gloomy winter day.  The pink color is on sale for $50 (also available in navy for $35) at JCrew.

Wynter V-neck sweater in stripe

This sweater is a classic, but the cropped fit makes it fresh.  Black looks good on everyone. Only $20 (with code shopsale) at Ann Taylor Loft!

 Chunky Short Sleeved Sweater

This light cardigan is perfect  for layering and great for the office.  This pearl color matches everything!  It’s on sale for $50 at White House Black Market.

Multi-Stitch Cardigan

What’s your favorite type of sweater to wear in the winter?

Let There be Light!

13 Jan

I love these Balloon Lights from Estiluz

I’m not sure they’d look good in just any old room, but the way they have it set
up in the picture is darling.  I also like the painted walls!

Have you ever tried color light therapy?  The thought is different colors can change your mood.  For example, green relaxes while red stimulates.  Now you can get a colored light therapy egg night light for every emotion!

How’d you like to wait at this traffic light in London?

Luckily it’s just a sculpture!

Impressions by Isaac

11 Jan

I’m always amazed by people who can do impressions, especially when they have a range as wide as Isaac does.  The Simpsons, Family Guy, Disney characters…he does it all!

Which one was your favorite?  I thought “The Joker” was chillingly accurate.  And Peter Griffin was spot on too!


Pajama Jeans- For Men!

6 Jan

Happy Friday everyone!  I’m feeling a little bit under the weather today.  I’ve had a sore throat since last night, so it’s high time for a hot toddy

On a different note, I’m happy to report that pajama jeans for men are now a real thing.  At only $12.95 each, this is the perfect new years/birthday/valentine’s day/father’s day/christmas present for all the men in your life!

Did I mention they have a distressed version? 

Knit Jean Lounge Pants

Wow.  Upon further studying the website, it appears the boxers above are ATTACHED to the jeans!  So it looks like you’re wearing underwear even though you’re not.  Who are the geniuses that came up with this one?

The glory can be yours here.

An Explosion of Color- Sticker Art!

3 Jan

An artist in Australia let a bunch of kids go nuts with stickers.  The result? A  sterile white room was transformed into a colorful explosion of fun!  Aren’t these pictures awesome?



What a simple, but awesome idea!  For more info/pictures, click here.
