Life Lately...

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend. I wanted to share what I've been up to lately today on the blog! :)

I went to my first Bruins game of the season with my friend Ellie and had a blast! Weren't our seats great?

Last Sunday, I was treated to the target facial peel at Skoah on Newbury Street thanks to CBH Communications. I had never had a peel before, so I was a little nervous that it would turn my face super red or that it would be too harsh for my sensitive skin. My "personal skin trainer" was fantastic and answered all of my questions to prepare me for the peel. It tingled a bit when she first applied it, but it wasn't intense and went away within about a minute. My face wasn't red at all after either and she told me that I would see the results of the peel for weeks afterwards. The next day, my face felt as smooth as a baby's bottom, and my skin has been so clear and evenly toned since the peel that I've been able to skip my face powder and go "naked" which is an amazing feeling! I definitely recommend the peel and I will be getting one again in a few months when my skin is ready for it. 
so happy with how my skin looks!

This past Thursday, I spent the first half of my workday volunteering at Toys for Tots with some of my coworkers. We sorted toys by gender and age and put together orders for churches and community centers in the Boston area. It was really rewarding to see that these toys would be donated to kids in my city and I am so happy that I could help make their Christmases a bit better! The Toys for Tots center in Boston's seaport area always needs volunteers, so please consider it if you have some free time this month and next!

Thursday evening, I had the opportunity to attend a holiday party at Tiffany & Co's new location on Newbury Street in Boston. Last year's party was amazing, so I was so excited to be invited back! The new Tiffany boutique is gorgeous - it's more modern than the former store in Copley Place and I love all of the signature blue furniture.

I had a great time trying on gorgeous jewels, including my dream engagement ring!

It was also fun to spend time and catch up with some Boston bloggers, including Kristen, Alana, Celina, Elissa, Emily & Katherine.

Since it was a holiday party, I used it as an excuse to get festive and wear some sequins! You last saw me wear this sparly Boohoo top here, and this time I paired it with skinny jeans, bow pumps, statement earrings and my blue clutch.
