Musings on Challenges

Since Monday is typically the most challenging day of the week (at least that's the stereotype), I thought it only fitting to announce the big challenge I'll be undertaking in a few months.

If you know me in real life, you probably know how much I love running. But as much as I love running, I haven't ever tackled a challenging race. Mostly I've run 5Ks and 5-milers (and a Speedo run in December) but have never really devoted the time to see what my body is really capable of handling. Since I've lived in Boston for four (!!) years now, I couldn't think of a better race for my first half, not to mention seeing Boston in a completely different way. 

So I hope you'll indulge me as I add in more posts centered around training, and fitness in general. Also, if any of you are so inclined to join me in May for the run, or any runs in general, I'd love to have you!

Madly in Love

Holy crap, I'm in love! I just came across these shoes on the Loubi website and need to find a way to make them mine. Ironically enough, they're called the Lucifer Bow, which is fitting given that I'm trying to sell my soul to the devil for work.

Moonrise Kingdom

I am a HUGE Wes Anderson fan. My favorite movie of all time is The Royal Tenenbaums. I could watch that movie over and over and over. Every time I watch it, there's something new I find, something dark, something funny. So I'm thrilled there's a new Wes Anderson movie coming out called Moonrise Kingdom. I've already watched it a handful of times and it gets funnier the way only a Wes Anderson movie can.

Wu-ing over Wu for Target

If you follow me on Twitter, you'll know that I, and every other fashionista out there, was blowing up the microsite earlier this week when the Wu for Target Collection look book was released. This isn't the first designer collab, but this is the first time I've been this excited about a hi-low collection in a LONG time (still sad I missed out on Lanvin Hearts H&M.) I'm a big fan girl of Jason Wu and nearly everything in this collection screams "BUY ME!" 

So I'm curious... will you be lining up with me on Feb. 5th to nab this collection? If so, what are you "wu-ing" over? Here's what's tops on my list:

Christmas in Photos

Happy New Year! I'm back from a well rested Christmas vacation in Texas where I ate, drank, shopped and spent copious amounts of time bonding with my family. Of course I loved on my little nephew, who is turning into a really cool kid. Here's a look at how we spent Christmas.

Happy New Year

Stephen and I were lucky enough to ring in NYE with one of our favorite couples (perhaps you recognize them?) We had dinner at Orinoco in Brookline, then went back to watch the ball drop. While photos were limited, there were enough taken to see that everyone was quite fashionable for the evening. There is nothing I like more than getting fancied up and going out on the town.
