Wow- what an amazing Brimfield! I had a really good feeling going into this year's visit and I think my positive attitude was the ticket to my success. The weather everyday last week was incredible. I'm talking blue skies, warm but not hot, with a slight breeze. Of course, Friday (the day I was going) loomed on the horizon as the only day with a sad rainy cloud picture on the weather app on my phone. But we seriously lucked out with the weather (which I'd like to believe was also due to my positive attitude), and had perfect Brimfield weather: cool, overcast, and no rain...perfect for bargain hunting.Read More
Last Saturday, I met up with my sister from another mister, Jordan, for an afternoon at the Museum of Fine Arts. There were two exhibits I was dying to see, Megacities Asia, and #Techstyle, and they did not disappoint. As a whole, #Techstyle was my favorite- featuring 3D printed fashion, kaleidoscope-like textiles that show bacteria eating cancer cells, a dress that can charge your phone, laser cut leather, and many other ingenious and innovative fashion creations. I love that this exhibit correlated (I think by chance?) with the Met Gala's theme, and I had a new appreciation for what defines "tech style" and the meaning behind some of the more subtle pieces that walked the red carpet.Read More
As I've mentioned a few times, I've been trying to get out and do some fun activities that have been on my to-do list for far too long. The Peabody Essex Museum is one of those spots. I haven't been since I was like four and there's really no excuse. Only 35 minutes outside of Boston, it makes the perfect day trip- especially on a freezing cold day where I definitely didn't want to be outside.Read More
Kintsugi is a Japanese method of repairing broken pottery. The technique uses a lacquer resin mixed with powdered gold, silver, or platinum to piece together the broken pieces. The technique dates back to the 15th century and has continued on as a popular and beautiful repair method.Read More
This weekend I finally made my way to the Museum of Fine Arts for a visit. The MFA is my favorite museum in Boston, and I've definitely been neglecting it lately.
Saturday was the Lunar New Year- so there were a lot of fun events going on to welcome in the year of the monkey. One of these events was a traditional dragon dance, which is something I've never seen and was absolutely fascinating (plus, I'm a sucker for anyone that throws candy into the audience).Read More
