Everyone loves a Boston girl. This is the story of one Boston girl's adventures in the city, in blogging, and in getting through those crazy 20-something years.

I'm a writer by trade. And by passion. I'm a lover of food, friends, and all things Boston. I listen to music pretty much 24/7 and idolize Martha Stewart. I love my job(s), my life, and this city. Follow me on Twitter! @Susie

more stuff to love.

Because I basically just like talking about the stuff I love. And the stuff that makes me happy. It doesn’t take much, but it’s the little things in life, right?

My new Saucony sneakers:


I’ve been having serious issues. I’m not usually what I call an “issue person,” but my foot really started bothering me a couple weeks ago. I knew I desperately needed new sneakers and when my foot developed what I’m pretty positive is a stress fracture, I thought, “Well, now’s as good a time as any.” I went over to Marathon Sports in Brookline and they helped me pick out some new kicks (and made me run up and down Beacon St. a few times). The second the girl brought these out for me to try on, I knew I was going to love them because they’re so not me (bright green? ick). But they are seriously growing on me now and I actually don’t mind how they look. Not to mention, my last sneakers were an adorable pair of pink Nikes. Super cute, but not made for my feet at all. Hence my issues. And why I had to go comfort over cuteness. I honestly don’t think I’ll ever buy a pair of sneakers that isn’t Saucony again. They are the only brand that has ever felt good to me.

Maybe my future Saucony sneakers:

I can’t really run until my foot is better, but I’ve been working out on the cross trainer and bike a lot. Once I’m able to run and I am fully convinced these are the sneakers of my dreams, I might have to snag a pair of these. Because yes, they are so much more me.

Mitzi and Cissy:

Yup, I’m with the girlies again. And they always make me happy. Except when they’re driving me crazy by following my everywhere, barking their heads off, and licking my face non-stop. But they’re adorable so I can’t really complain.

Marthsa Stewart and Snoop Dog:


Just because this is absolutely the best thing I’ve ever seen in my life. Again, reason #8439 why I love Martha Stewart

Rembrandt Mouthwash:

I don’t know. But I’m a huge fan of Rembandt’s new image. It’s so clean and sleek and definitely sucked me in. I’m an Act girl myself, but I couldn’t resist the packaging on this Rembrandt mouthwash.

My new t-shirt. And yours too?

Remember my new and awesome t-shirt? Well, now you can have one too!! Tres Ladies is giving away a t-shirt to a reader of We are not Martha. All you have to do is go over to the We are not Martha blog and leave a comment about the tees. I got my tee and it’s seriously awesome, completely comfortable, and pretty much perfect. Yay.

    The new Rembrandt packaging is awesome and the reason why I bought it.I didn’t even need mouthwash… in fact I have a huge bottle of another brand in my bathroom. my parents always say i’m a marketers dream… i say, i just know how to spend money on things i dont really need. Its decorative and i’m leaving it on the sink in my bathroom. then when it runs out i’m using it as a vase. not a lie.

  9. brookem Says:

    i still love that shirt and need to own it.
    and maybe start running first?

    hmm. cute sneaks!

  10. Trish Ryan Says:

    It’s amazing the difference the right running shoes make. It’s like some sort of reverse Cinderella situation, where all the wrong shoes don’t fit at all, over and over again, until you find the right one which makes the whole world wonderful.

    (Okay, perhaps that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but it sounds fun…)

    Marathon Sports is so great.

    I actually just bought my first pair of Saucony’s, I love them.

  12. peterdewolf Says:

    I had a pair of Sauconys in college. They were grey with blue and orange and they were just lousy with the awesome.

  13. Dave Q. Says:

    I think your dogs are eying your new footware as chew toys. :)

  14. Joanne Says:

    Oh my, I love your favorite things here, especially the purple shoes. My shirt would have to say “and cheesecake, pasta, ice cream, etc” in parentheses to be accurate, lols.
