Signature crafted event

I received compensation from McDonald’s in exchange for writing this review. This is a sponsored post, all opinions are my own.

I’m a HUGE foodie so I was excited to attend an event at Mcdonald’s to try the new signature crafted sandwiches. Sorry in advance to my healthy friends but I love McDonald’s! When I was in school I would go to McDonald’s just to grab an Oreo Mcflurry. We started the event with a mini tour of the Kitchen with Chef Mike who came to visit from Chicago. He made each sandwich from scratch and all of the ingredients are fresh every single day. The three sandwiches that were offered were Maple Bacon Dijon, Pico Guacamole, and Sweet BBQ Bacon.

I ordered the Sweet BBQ Bacon sandwich with crispy buttermilk chicken. I don’t like BBQ sauce on my sandwiches but this BBQ sauce was tangy and sweet. The perfect addition to the sandwich. Along with these signature crafted sandwiches, McDonald’s is offering new “Just For You” customer experiences at select stores. As of May 5th, 11 stores currently have table service, touchscreen self-order kiosks, or mobile pay options. We ended the night with the ladies of Sip and Script and I learned some basic calligraphy tips. I wasn’t the best but it was such a fun activity to end with. Check out their event page to see what’s coming up on the schedule.

Always on time

Wood WatchWood WatchWood WatchWood WatchWood WatchA few years ago I started to appreciate watches more and now I wear one every single day. I feel incomplete when I forget my watch at home. At the moment I’m really into my new  JORD Wood watch .  When I first saw the Fieldcrest Green Sandalwood watch I really liked how clean it looked and the packaging is pretty cool too. I knew the color and style would work perfectly with my chunky knit sweaters and leather jacket in the fall. Wood watches have become extremely popular this season and I can see them getting more popular as the seasons go by.

I teamed up with JORD for this fun giveaway. The winner will receive a $75 e-voucher and everyone who enters will receive a 20 e-gift card (excluding the winner). Click the link below to enter the giveaway and good luck!

En Route to brunch

forever 21 dressforever 21 dressforever 21 dressforever 21 dressforever 21 dressLet me start this post off by saying I love a good weekend brunch. I live for a great breakfast and some hot coffee (with almond milk of course). For such a tiny person I know how to eat and I have no shame in that. Sometimes I’ll even eat a snack before my meal or while I’m preparing dinner. You get it I love food… I wanted to share a few of my favorite brunch places in Boston for all of the readers who aren’t from this area. I personally like going to the South End for brunch.

My favorite spot is South End Buttery on Shawmut Ave. Their garlic parm fries are the best thing I have ever tasted in my life. The whole atmosphere of the restaurant is very relaxing and photos of dogs are placed throughout the space. The weekends are very hectic so reserving a spot for brunch is necessary. Tremont 647 is another spot I love. Their brunch and dinner are absolutely delicious. Every time I go here I’m never disappointed. Also, they have a tasty fried chicken meal my boyfriend and I are obsessed with.

One weekend I tried to eat at Stephi’s on Tremont and it was full. So I crossed the street and had brunch at Metropolis. Since then I’ve grown to love the place and the diner like feel it has going on. *side note* Can I fill you guys in on something? So a few weeks ago I tried to use this face wash and moisturizer, I won’t say the brand but my face broke out TERRIBLY! If you find a beauty routine and products don’t ever switch it up. For about a year I’ve used Glossier cleanser and coconut oil I get from Amazon. Anyways… I would love to meet people who are obsessed with brunch like me? What are some of your favorite brunch spots around the U.S or wherever you may be?!

Little white dress

Primark DressPrimark DressPrimark Dress

So far I’m loving the weather in August and I hope it stays like this until mid-September. My favorite part about August is when the sun goes down and there’s a cool breeze that reminds me that fall is very close but NOT that close you know. My heart broke a little when I saw Halloween decorations out in TJ Maxx! I’m really not ready for summer to end I want it to last forever. I’m trying to enjoy my weekends as much as I can before I have to bundle up again for a few months.

Last Sunday Newbury Street shut down the roads allowing pedestrians to walk in the street. If you’re from Boston you know how annoying the sidewalks on Newbury Street are during the summer. Packed with people and tourist, it’s awful if you’re there to do some serious shopping. It was the perfect summer day for lunch outside and a walk through the park. This Primark dress was only $9 and the shoes were $19. The purse is from Asos, I bought it a few years ago but Asos has really good deals when it comes to their purse selection.

I really fell in love with these Primark platforms in the store. I think the peach color is perfect for summer and it makes your pedicure look 100 times better. Where did you guys pick up your favorite little white dress? I would love to know!!

Casual in Mules

MulesMulesMulesMules

This is my normal look on a daily basis. I do wear dresses and skirts a lot at work or on the weekends but this is my everyday look. I like to keep it casual and comfortable since it’s the summer and I really hate being hot, it makes me so grumpy. Normally I wear jeans, a cute top, my Keds or flats to work. I really don’t like wearing my nice clothes to work. And when I say my nice clothes I mean my over the top dresses or heels. I really don’t want to wear 6 inch heels for 8 hours.

I found these mint green mules at the Gilt Warehouse sale for 30 dollars. Mules are the most comfortable shoe for me to walk in and I’m really glad I bought these. I was debating between these shoes and black boots that would be perfect for fall but they didn’t fit around my ankles. I normally wouldn’t buy green shoes but this color is so fun. I had an  obsession with this color green in high school but I never really fed into it.

This outfit was a complete steal. I got these pants at Old Navy for $15 dollars and the shirt at Loft for $19.50. If you’re currently looking for comfy weekend pants ( is that even a thing?) these are the pants you want. They are easy to throw on with a t-shirt and some sandals too. On another note I have a really fun collaboration coming up soon and I’m really excited to share it with you! Follow me on Instagram to keep up.

Beach day + Adore me

 

adore me post

It’s summer time so there’s no harm in writing multiple blog post about the beach. Many of us will be on the beach every weekend so we need a place to find some beach day inspiration.  I’m always browsing for new bikinis, sun hats, cover-ups (you name it, I have it saved in my bookmarks). Recently I came across  Adore Me and they have such a great selection of bathing suits for all sizes in a variety of different prints and styles. I personally love a two piece bikini. The Melodie two piece has the crochet style with a mix of colors to make that tan pop. Another favorite is the Joanna Push-Up two piece bikini, I really like the stripe detail and the different shades of blue.

Adore Me has tons of bathing suits to choose from so I’m sure you’ll fall in love with one. Check out their swim collection here and the hashtag #beachdaymusts on Instagram to see what everyone is bringing to the beach.
