The Week of December 14th

Around the Hub

A startup, stemming from Boston, you say?  They just keep getting more impressive with time!  Lola is sure to be a frequently-mentioned name.

We already know your answer, but want to get a glimpse inside Tom & Gisele's Brookline compound?!

Top Chef alum opens another restaurant in town.  Similarly, Boston Magazine released the top 50 spots in town!  I'll be booking one of these this weekend and we've can cosign on a few, especially here.  AND, because we find pizza very exciting, we're stoked that this New Haven staple is opening in Chestnut Hill this week.  Aside from BAR, this was my favorite while I lived in CT during college.

Be sure to stop by Copley with a gently-worn coat to get 25% off at the Land's End pop-up before/on Sunday!

One of our favorite chains is expanding quickly!  New 2016 sites reported downtown & Fenway...

A park is being named after a well-known hero who embodied so much spirit of our city!

We love all of the pops o' pink in Kate's Christmas decor

Our blogging pal, Des, has launched her line of tea towels full time!  Check them out here, they make perfect stocking stuffers!

Career & Finance

In addition to shopping local, be sure to give from these stores with the best return policies.

A new year means another annual review.  Plan how to lean in and get a raise this year!

Health & Beauty

The hookup culture is black, white and gray, especially illustrated in pop music.

Sexist comments that just need to stop. 

Aside from joining our next Ladies Lounge (wellness theme, more details TBD!), start this year with a digital detox, too!

No matter how epic the destination, we can always use tips for how to have a more enjoyable flight. 

Things you're doing that are actually hurting you.

What are the smartest things to order when out at a Mexican restaurant?  Hear it from nutritionists.

Style & Decor

Raising kids is part of "style," right? The patriarch of the Gronkowski family spills it all on raising five boys.

I mean, when there are diamonds are to look at, we're not going to turn away.

Sorry Gisele, but if I could befriend any supermodel, it would be Gigi.  I just loved this Vogue UK interview!

Have a great (pre-Christmas) week, all!
