Day Trip over to Bean Town!

AHHHHH how did the week go by, and no other posts??? *shamed* that's me!!

The work week has been hectic, so my boyfriend and I needed to recharge and get out of the city ( it can be suffocating at times) and headed over to Boston for a day trip!

Bright and early!! It's about a 4 hour drive!


Our beautiful hotel







Boston is a large city but keeps a huge amount of it's old world charm. Since most of the buildings are considered historical land marks everything looks more classic and homey, but inside modernization has taken over!

We decided to head over to the famous Quincy Market!


Haha "Chowda" they really say it like that!!



Quincy market was BUSTLING it seemed as if everyone knew everyone. Not surprising since so many Universities are housed in Boston, I'm sure everyone is a face book Friend of everyone else...including the market staff!

In actuality, the place was PACKED because...

To our complete un awareness it was the night of the 27th annual Boston Christmas Tree Lighting! Half the city showed up!

No wonder....we thought! haha




They had great music during the live concert! Confetti was everywhere, and everyone looked happy

We decided to get out of there shortly...we left the city to avoid crowds not be in the hub bub of one!


The city had started to deck themselves out




When in Boston you have to eat certain things, like their famous seafood!



The restaurant was great! Food was good, staff were great, and it was not "too rushy" - which I hate. The restaurant was too dark to show what I ate, I took photo's but you can't see anything, bah! They also had the best beer I ever tried! I usually never have beer, I am not a fan of the taste, when asking what the name was, I was informed it was made specifically for the restaurant, sigh- typical. Enjoyable evening regardless!


Outfit of the evening
-Same o same o


Make up Bag Essentials - This is all I brought with me, along with 1 kabuki brush
Daytime SPF lip balm, night time, vamped up color



The night was over we were pooped, typical vacation requirement is to try to oversleep and order room service for breakfast before the journey home

-Just kidding, the room service is part of the package, usually I never partake, have you seen their prices????
- I also did not oversleep to my boyfriends mis fortune lol







Refreshed and ready to go back to work! (sort of)

How did you all unwind once in a while?

  3. Yes, I stayed at "The Hotel Common Wealth" in Boston which used and sold Fresh products for the clients.
    Yup that is an NC15/NW20 Chronographic eye pencil, it was limited edition but I blv you can buy it from the PRO store all year long, it helps makes my eyes look more awake, and I have been loving it lately!

  9. Your trip looks so relaxing and nice :) Your hotel looks awesome and the food looks super yummy as well! I 100% agree that the city can be suffocating.... Honestly I tend to despise the city about 75% of the day :( I've never been to Boston but I really want to go! I can't drive either actually but I plan on taking lessons and hopefully passing my driver's test this upcoming summer :D Btw, love that you kept your makeup bag really minimalist! That really shows us what you love and "need" haha

  14. What a fun weekend! Boston certainly has quite a different sort of charm than NYC. I'm getting quite hungry thinking of oysters and chowda right now (not in ther same dish though, of course).

My beauty no buy is doing really well actually but I have my eye on a few things from the upcoming Mac Daphne Guinness collection.... :X I'm actually really scared I'll fail my driving test but most of my friends recently got their licenses so it's about time I learn too haha.
