London: Dunkin’ Donuts Opens By Baker Street!

Today was an amazing day – Dunkin’ Donuts opened a central London location adjacent to the Baker Street underground!

As a former employee and huge fan, having a taste of home is pretty exciting. Dunkin’ even has a proper Iced Coffee with Splenda. None of this Iced Americano or hot coffee poured over ice – the real deal!

And yes, there are donuts. Lots and lots of decadent donuts – I was impressed by the flavor options!

Travel: An Epic Girls Weekend In Paris

Ah, Paris. Always a good idea, especially when it’s the setting for an epic girls weekend. Between the warm weather, incredible food, sightseeing and a few surprise encounters, the magic of Paris made this trip memorable. Here are my tips and recommendations on how to spend a girls weekend in Paris.

Where To Stay

I absolutely adore Hotel Le Bellechasse in St. Germain. Decorated by Christian Lacroix, the hotel is in a fantastic location blocks from Musée d’Orsay. The hotel only has 33 guest rooms, free wi-fi and the service is great.

Only in London: A Velvet Wrapped Rolls Royce

London is known for its supercars – especially in the summer, when foreigners ship in exotic, incredibly expensive cars. Although I’m pretty sure this one is in London year-round, I recently came up close with one of the more unique luxury cars in Knightsbridge – a velvet wrapped Rolls Royce. It’s quite a sight to see.

And, in case you’re wondering….I did not touch the car. But, I’ll admit it – I was tempted to!

Fashion: Cole Haan Cassidy Bootie

IMG_5143Say hello to my favorite new bootie from Cole Haan! With weather that just doesn’t want to warm up, I’ve been living in these booties ever since purchasing them. With a black suede buffed outer sole, these boots come up about an inch or so above my ankle and look fantastic when paired with black skinny jeans or leggings. In addition to being super chic, these boots are also incredibly comfortable as a result of the Nike AIR technology inside. Which, as city girls know, is a must when purchasing shoes. If I can’t walk a mile in them, they’re just not worth it!

The booties are currently available in the black or maple sugar (nude) brushed suede on sale for $199.95 on Cole Haan’s website, while prices vary for the traditional black leather version on Amazon. The boots also come in a lovely brown leather that have me tempted to purchase another pair! If only they came in my size 8!

The SavvyBostonian purchased the Cole Haan Cassidy Bootie from the Cole Haan store at 109 Newbury Street in Boston’s Back Bay on sale for $199.95.
