Karhu’s only US store can be found in my neighborhood, Harvard Square. Can you say jackpot?! The Finnish sneaker brand that offers nothing short of cool kicks in a wide array of colors. The old school color combos have me going places. I love the calm and understated presence of their style. Perhaps a nice alternative to the white sneaker as you head into the cooler seasons of the year. Yup, I do see a pair in my future! Besides being super cool, they are super comfortable.
Fun fact for ya: Where do you think Adidas found their stripes? Know your isostilo style.
Love at first brush with Jeanne 20 years ago! She is the one treat that I can’t live without. She is located on the 4th floor off Newbury Street but you feel miles away in a quiet and peaceful setting. You will fall in love with Jeanne the moment she brings on the magic that leaves you with shiny fingers and glowing toes. Our relationship has grown along the way and I consider Jeanne a dear friend. I hope you get to experience Jeanne Lee when you are in the hood.
Montreal is a hip, cool, stylish city with a European flare. It is rich in history, trendy shops, galleries, museums, and a ridiculous food scene. Amazing little neighborhoods to wander through with hidden little gems along the way.
Neighborhoods to explore: Old Montreal, Griffintown, and Mile End
Doesn’t always happen but sometimes you simply make it so! It’s up to you to decide how to spend it. For me it was easy and I was in count down mode till the Dutchies arrived. My boys were off skiing and I love a reason to cook. So I decided to do some monster cooking. I rolled up my sleeves, poured a coffee, cranked some John Mayor and fired up the stove.
Menu: Baked Mama Pasta inspired by Glada De Laurentis. The best Damn Chili which I have found to be true along with a new recipe to test out, Sweet Potato soup. Three meals are complete! Thanks Cook’s Illustrated.
