Black Friday (if you are brave enough)

Posted by Katie Beth Clark on Mon, Nov 19, 2012

365 things to do in boston black friday shopping

So we all know Black Friday is umm.. well intimidating if you ask me. People are everywhere, like literally EVERYWHERE! But, despite the long lines, chaos, and traffic it is worth it for many people if you can snag a great deal. I am guilty as charged when it comes to Black Friday. I go every single year with coupons in hand, and am literally the person jogging across the mall to grab my next bargain before everything is sold out. Since I am an experienced Black Friday shopper I have nominated myself to give a few pieces of advice for all of those rookie readers out there.

1. Pack a turkey sandwich the night before. Why? Because i'm sure you have an unimaginable amount of turkey left anyways, and no way you are going to waste it! Also, why would you stop for a lunch break when those minutes lost could be the very reason you don't get the newest xbox for half price!

2. Make sure your tennis shoes are ready to go. You can't wake up the entire house when getting ready in the morning, so make sure to have your entire outfit ready to go. If you want to really dedicate yourself then sleep in your clothes... I do.... 

3. Keep your sense of humor. A lot of people on Black Friday have plenty of potential to drive you crazy. Adapting to the loony tunes (like me) is mandatory or you will definitely lose your mind. 

Now that you have my top three tips, you may just have a chance to survive. See ya in the shops folks!

Shop it like it's hott...Newbury Style

Posted by Katie Beth Clark on Thu, Jul 19, 2012

If you are a true shopaholic this is my disclosure - stay away from Newbury Street. If you have made it through shopaholics anonymous, or don't fiend for fine clothes, then you should be good to go. Newbury Street is one of Boston's most chic shopping addresses mixed with elegant boutiques, funky salons and trendy galleries. It is up there in the ranks as being one of Boston's bucket list, go-to-streets.

This funky shopping street is not too hard to find. The best way to start is... take the subway to Hynes (Convention Centre) and walk back into the city. The street is full of high end shopping and many funky and alternative shops. And there are many great restaurants and cafes to be found along the street. 

After leaving Newbury Street you will be dressed to impress. Your wallet on the other hand may have taken one for the team. Gotta love those team players :)
