Berlin! Where to start? Berlin, the capital city of Germany is becoming a love of mine. This city is flat-out cool! Everyone is young, artistic, stylish, creative, vibrant, and ultra hip. Whatever you are looking for, you will find. Berlin is full of rich history. Every step along your journey reminds you of that. Berlin speaks to me like Amsterdam. Experiencing this city with local friends makes you feel like a local. I did no planning and went along for the ride. I wanted the everyday life of a Berliner. The feeling as if I lived there (Yes! I can live here). Here is Berlin!

The food scene stretches beyond just food. The creativity, the environment, and the attention to detail is appreciated. The awareness of what you are eating is inspiring . An absolute stand out for me is Daluma. I beg for this place to land in my hood.
Yes! I will sit here

Urban living at its best! Behind every store front is a garden. On top of every building is graffiti art. Every corner has some green. Look up and you see gems! Eyes wide open the whole time.

It is simple, I just love following fashion. It is not about buying and filling my closet. One does not need to shop to enjoy it. Being able to stroll along Newbury St. early morning when the stores are just opening with a coffee in my hand is something I enjoy. It is like flipping through a magazine. The peacefulness with no crowds is a lovely way to gaze at the window displays. It is fun to see what colors, patterns, and styles are trending. Window shopping allows you to escape and indulge with your eyes. Well spring is here and it is time to stroll the city! Here is a peek at Newbury St.
Stripes, plaids, dots, and floral oh my! Time to shed layers and rock your spring style!
Vince is all about the traditional tones of spring with their newest collection. They are known for their casual and effortless look with basics that are not boring. This season it is all about soft tones in lovely lightweight fabrics. Pops of nautical throughout the line. Vince is one of those lines that will compliment any piece in your closet. I appreciate this brand for consistently focusing on classic pieces that reflect an easy-going aesthetic.
I am ready for summer! How about you? Vince has me excited for sunshine and carefree days. Always keep an eye open for friends and family discount offerings!

Blue Bottle Coffee has landed in Harvard Square and I am ecstatic! The sun drenched space is located on the quiet corner of Bow Street in a late nineteenth century building. Upon walking into the bright, beautiful space you may feel for a moment that you are in Europe with its clean modern aesthetic. The warm tone of the space invites you to sit, relax, and watch the precise choreography of the single serving pour over style coffee that Blue Bottle is known for.
Enjoy your coffee with a lovely piece of avocado toast or opt for the sweet chocolate chip cookie. What ever you decide, you will not be disappointed. I am all about the taste of my coffee and the process to deliver a well balanced cup that I will want to sip and savor. I love when a space and product compliment each other to deliver a great customer experience. Blue Bottle Coffee has nailed it! isostilo loves options. Welcome to the Square!
