I enjoyed celebratory quality time with my loves this weekend. AB and I hung out in honor of her 28th birthday, visiting new boutique, Bmore Betty, located in Federal Hill. Bmore Betty is a lovely vintage shop with tons of great goodies from accessories, to handbags to clothing and shoes from designers like Chloe, Gucci, Kate Spade and Louis Vuitton--and all at really reasonable prices to boot. On top of that the owner, Camille, and her staff are ridiculously sweet and helpful. I definitely recommend checking it out! From there we headed to dinner at our favorite upscale seafood restaurant.
Every year one of my good girlfriends hosts a holiday gathering at her home, and I am so grateful to get to spend this time annually with the beautiful women I've been friends with for over 17 years--especially at the holidays, and at a time where there seems to be so much senseless loss of life. It felt great to just be in their presence and hug and kiss their babies.
I attended my first LNL Book Club meeting in a few months, and it was fun to get together with those ladies again to eat, sip and chat about our latest reads The Glass Castle and The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks.
This week will be filled with long days at the 9-5 in an attempt to close out the year prior to my extended vacation through the new year; and lots of Christmas shopping as I have barely begun to cross out the lovies on my list. This week on the blog, you can look forward to another Posh Holiday Giveaway, a guest post from Towson Town Center Guru on local trends to shop and navigating the mall during crowded holiday hours, as well as a third holiday gift guide.
Hope you have a lovely and productive week!
