This past weekend, I was invited to experience a sampling of what MarketStreet, one of the largest open-air marketplaces in the Greater Boston area, has to offer.
Living just south of Boston, Lynnfield (on the North Shore) just isn’t a place that I frequent often. It’s about a 45 minute drive. But when I was offered the opportunity to join some fellow Boston bloggers, to “stroll the street”, I was all in. We spent the day “retail hopping” from one shop to another where we learned about some of the outdoor mall’s newest boutiques and foodie hot spots.
I hate tea. Always have. But I so desperately want to like it. I’ve tried so many times. I’ve tried all the styles – green, black, herbal. All the flavors – from fruits to flowers. Cold. Hot. You name it, I’ve tried it.
Anyone who knows me (even in the slightest) will know that I usually, almost always, have two things on when I leave the house. The first being some sort of heel (I’m 5’0″ – hello!), and the second, is a lip color. I have an obsession with both things, but because the latter is easier to snag at a moment’s notice, I have quite the collection.
Last week, Bostonians everywhere were running around town in sunnies and shorts, soaking up the (almost) 60 degree weather. This pre-spring fever is something that happens every year around this time.
One of the hardest things to do in life, is listen to your instincts. Especially when your head or your heart is pulling you in the opposite direction. So, what do you do?
