Weekending | A Little Snow & Lots of Downtime

via
Happy Monday everyone!! Hopefully you all were warm and cozy for the storm this weekend, if it was in your area!! I have to admit - it's nice being forced to relax when you just can't go outside!! Here's a few snaps from our weekend...
Flat lay with glasses
Made sure to kick of the weekend with bubbly & candy - Ferrero Rocher is my absolute favorite! 
Flat Lay with notepad
Before the snow made it's way to Boston, I ventured to Target and did some damage buying  lots of dry foods for our trip, but also made sure to check out the dollar spot - get's me every time!
We watched The Martian on Friday night and I was seriously impressed - I usually don't like those types of movies. We also decided to give Orange Is The New Black again and we are totally hooked! Thankfully we can binge on all 3 seasons! 
Sunday was all about getting outside and soaking up the sun...even though it was still pretty cold! First stop was brunch at Joe's on Newbury Street. They revamped their menu a few months back and their barbecue steak flat bread was incredible!! Did a little shopping and picked up these earmuffs from Scoop NYC - they were an extra 60% off so I couldn't pass it up! On Friday I mentioned that I wanted to pick up some clear coffee mugs so I decided to put my William Sonoma gift card to use and scoop them up along with a new cookbook
I did a lot of prepping for our trip this weekend and decided to do my best at packing smart!! I've got four different lists...not including the ones online! Trying to split it out between India, Dubai, General & then the day by day of what I'll need! Just litke that it was time to wrap up and get ready for Monday! Crazy nights over here I tell ya! 

Hope you have an amazing start to your week! How was your weekend? Link up below to share!

  1. Obsessed with your new mugs! SO cute! And SO jealous of all your snow. it's been SO cold down here and of course this FL girl doesn't own a jacket to keep me warm so the train rides in the morning have been brutal. Glad you got to get some relaxing in this weekend even if it was forced from being snowed in! Stay warm love! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  2. Can't wait to see what you actually end up packing for your trip! I don't think I made it outside Sunday.. Lazy Sunday at it's best! Haha

  3. I also forced myself get outside on Sunday so I didn't go stir crazy! Ended up walking to whole foods and they didn't have anything since they couldn't get deliveries. They store was bare! Loving those earmuffs.. Had no idea Scoop was still around. It's been forever since I heard someone mention that store!

  4. Matt Damon is one of my favorites...so glad you enjoyed The Martian! I am a bit jealous you guys got snow. Seeing everyone's pictures made me wish we were getting a little something, too. The temps were in the 50s yesterday! Just so crazy!

  5. We Loved the Martian and I was surprised to that I liked it so much. Your earmuffs are so cute and I am extremely jealous of the snow, my husband and I were probably one of the few that were begging for it, lol. Bet you're getting so excited for your trip!! Happy Monday my gorgeous friend!!

  6. I agree--The Martian was so good! I'm not into movies about space either, but I went and saw it in theaters and really enjoyed it! Love your picture in the snow--you look so cute! Have a great Monday!

  10. Looks like the perfect weekend and the earmuffs are adorable! The pizza looks delicious and I LOVE the clear glass coffee mugs. Target $1 spot always gets me too, but ours didn't have those cute books and pencils darn it! Can't wait to hear more about your impending trip. :)

  24. Glad you guys stayed safe and warm during the storm, and you already know I'm obsessing over those bubbly champagne flutes! And yay for giving OITNB another try, I binged on the first two seasons, and then season three was slow at first. Once I gave it another chance, I was so glad I did. Counting down to season 4! Cheers to a fabulous week gurlie <3

    Girl, I'd be living by lists with all the travel ahead. Gives me anxiety thinking of all the planning & prepping.

  27. What a fabulous weekend!!! I haven't seen The Martian yet but I did the audiobook. Isn't it fantastic?? I have that cookbook!!! I just reviewed it a week or two ago. I love all the little life snippets and tips that she gives on top of all the fabulous recipes. You will have to let me know what you tried and what you thought since there are so many in there! Those earmuffs are so cute! I hope you have a great week!

  28. Love that cute stationary, Biana! You will have to let us know how Giada's cookbook is! Looks like a great weekend! Happy Monday!

  30. I love all the Target finds! I need to try to get there and see what our store has, once the snow clears! And I need to check out this Giada cookbook! I didn't realize she came out with a new one. She is one of my favorites! Happy Monday!

  37. Love that you guys had a nice weekend in--snow definitely forces you to take a step back and relax. The Martian was SO good! Loved it, too. OITNB--you're hooked! Yay!! Enjoy bingeing on all of the seasons!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I sort of wish we got more snow so that I didn't have to work at all this weekend. Sadly, mother nature had other plans. Nothing like staying home during a snow storm. Great time just sitting and relaxing. Good luck on the packing, looks like you have a great handle on it already.

  39. Oooh bubbly and candy is the best way to start any weekend!

  43. Sophie loves Ferrero Rocher....we always have to hide the candy from her. Kyle loves orange is the new black!

    Did you get much snow? I know some friends I have in VA were completely snowed in.

    Packing has to be tough, I'm always making lists of what we need and what we don't need, what we may need, if this happened etc. But you're traveling across the country to another country, that's a lot tougher in case you forget something only native to here.

  50. We are binge watching Sons of Anarchy and currently on season 5 of 7 and its so addicting and definitely has lead to some late nights. Love your Winter wonderland shots, Boston is such a beautiful city for sure!

  51. You definitely know how to rule a snow day!! I totally forgot to get some bubbly this past weekend! I have to see the Martian! It looks so good!! That stationery is too cute! I have to check out Target soon!

  52. Looks like fun!! Loving the earmuffs on you! So cute! And I've been wanting to see The Martian, but as you say I normally steer clear of movies like that, so glad to know you liked it!!

    ReplyDelete
  53. I've loved being snowed in! We got hit pretty bad here so we're still not going anywhere today. Hoping that we can get out by tomorrow at least, because we are starting to run low on food!

  54. I've seen no snow in London, not sure if I'm jealous though.
    I'm glad you got to relax though.

  72. Yes! Ferrero Rocher is one of my favorites as well! They're so addicting!

    Glad you guys had a great weekend, and I'm glad to hear that you liked The Martian. Hubs has been bothering me to see it, but I didn't think I'd be that interested so it's good to know that you liked it even though you don't like those types of movies usually either!

    ReplyDelete
  73. That earmuff pic you posted on Insta is such a good one! You look so cute and the background looks so pretty. Yay for trip planning! We were doing some planning on our BOSTON trip for this spring over the weekend! Woot! Happy Monday, lady! xo

  74. Looks like you enjoyed the snowy weekend! That pizza looks so delicious and I bet it was, too! Pizza is definitely my weakness :) I like the idea of clear coffee mugs, thanks for the inspiration, I want to purchase a few after seeing yours.

And hooray for getting a start on your packing lists for your trip! That's always the most stressful part of the traveling for me!

  78. I have heard that The Martian was soo good! Also OITNB is such a good show, I think the first season was my favorite! Yum to the champagne...that kind looks good! Hope you have a great week!

    ReplyDelete
  79. Love your cute ear muffs-- cute and practical! I had never had ferrero rocher until a couple of months ago when a co-worker mentioned it, and it is soooo good! I've heard good things about Giada's cookbook, you will have to share your thoughts once you have it a bit longer :) and yay for trip planning/organizing!

    ReplyDelete
  80. I'm with you! I got a LOT done this weekend since I couldn't go anywhere lol. Good for you for getting out (you look adorable!) - I think I am going to try to get the little one out into the snow today. :) Perfect weekend for you to prepare for your trip - so exciting!!

  93. We haven't seen The Martian yet but really want to. And I should finish OITNB. Love it! I've been avoiding the dollar spot at Target for that very reason; gets me every time!

    ReplyDelete
  94. I love your new ear muffs and clear coffe mugs. I was at Target today and their dollar spot gets me all the time too. I got some cute pens, pencils and VDay cards. Oh and I also loved The Martian though I do not enjoy those types of movies, either. Matt Damon is one of my favorite actors.

    Hope by now, lots of snow has been cleared out.

    ReplyDelete
  95. So I'm not jealous of the snow you guys got, but totally jealous of your forced relaxation time. (; I really want to see the Martian. I know your going on a trip soon, but if you need another binge series when you get back, check out the 100. (:
