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

born to blog. and throw parties. and wear gap jeans. again.

Welcome to my new blog for real!! Yay!! I’m telling you, I just can’t bear to blog anywhere that hurts my eyes. And my blog has hurt my eyes forever now. I’m sure the pinkness of this blog probably hurts some of your eyes, and for that I am sorry. But it’s totally me and I think I’m actually happy blogging here now.

I knew I had to get the ball moving on this fixing of the blog thing because so many exciting things are happening in the coming months. So, thank you to Chris for helping me so much because I’m pretty much HTML inept, especially when it comes to WordPress.

I’m SO excited for my Gap Born to Fit party this weekend that I was asked to throw by Brand About Town (pretty much the best marketing company in the world… and the smartest!). And though, of course, it will be blogged about on We are not Martha (we are throwing a party with delicious food and fashion after all), I wanted to share some other details here.

Like the fact that they sent me this super cute Gap t-shirt:



Which is now my favorite t-shirt EVER! (please excuse my mess of a room).

They also sent me all this glorious stuff:


Am obsessed with the lip gloss (obviously) and I actually LOVE the perfume as well. It’s called Close and is super pretty smelling. I haven’t worn Gap perfume since my “Dream” days (remember that?! Which one did you wear?? I also liked the yellow one. Sun? Or something like that), so I’m really excited for the opportunity to try their scents out again.

I also might have gotten a huge box filled with 21 pairs of Gaps new Born to Fit jeans in it. For my party. I won’t say too much excpet that I haven’t worn Gap jeans since middle school and figured I never would again. But um, I’ve changed my mind.

So, like I said, Brand About Town is the smartest marketing firm ever. I also got a TON of other fun stuff, but I’ll share that after the part-ay. There might also be a giveaway involved on We are not Martha for those of you not lucky enough to be in attendance. All I’m saying is, get excited!!!

    I actually really like Gap jeans. And I love the Heaven scent. The yellow/orange perfume you are referring to was called “OM.” It smelled really yummy and spicy. I wish the Gap would have a good come back. Lately they’ve had a lot of really ugly hobo/shabby clothing. They need to get back to their casual preppy roots. Not everyone wants to look like a slobby hipster.
