Weekend Tidbits - Long Weekend

Having an extra day at the weekend really makes all the difference. I ran all the necessary errands, dealt with my life maintenance stuff and still had plenty of time for lazing about.

Sometimes there is nothing more fabulous or decadent than plopping down in my favorite chair and reading all the fashion rags.

We had snow yet again on Sunday but I braved the wind and snow to hop to the grocery store and fish market. Morse's Fish Company in the South End always has a great variety of fresh fish and I bought some pre-cooked shrimp that I had for dinner Sunday night.

I also bought some fresh lobster meat that I made into a lobster salad.

With my bonus day Monday I treated myself to a manicure and pedicure.  This is something I do regularly but at my local quickie/cheapie place which usually serves its purpose.  This time I was looking for something with less hustle and bustle so I headed to Bliss Spa at the W Hotel. 

The nail spa is really beautiful, open and airy and the plush pedicure stations made it well worthwhile.

I also got myself hooked on the made for Netflix series House of Cards. Has anyone else been watching this?

I haven't gotten into it (yet) - this weekend I got hooked on Enlightened. It is definitely like nothing I have ever watched before! Glad you had such a wonderfully relaxing weekend Alyssa xo

Please tell me the name of the magazine with the T. Did it have an article about Lee, Jackie sister?

Hi Marita,
The T Magazine is the Sunday NY Times style magazine. Here's a link to the Lee Radziwill article. http://tmagazine.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/02/07/the-real-lee-radziwill/?ref=womens-fashion-issue

looks like a fabulous weekend-what color polish did you select? :-)

Hi Keri,
I selected a boring neutral for my hands since they are so dry and prone to chipping right now (I usually bring my own Tom Ford Bitter Bitch but forgot). For my toes I went for a bright orange (of course I can't remember the name) since I'm headed to Florida in a couple of weeks.

sounds blissful Lissy. I heard about house of cards-think I read about it in a magazine. We're looking for something to watch next. This may be it!

Seriously, let me know next time you decide to mix it up at Bliss. I will definitely go along for the ride....for research purposes of course.

Definitely worth checking out. I've beeb once, but only for a facial and need to remember to go back for a manicure. Hope your having a good weekend!
