Mary Poppins Returns

Get your popcorn ready! One of our favorite childhood movies is coming back to the big screen on December 19th and we can’t wait! Mary Poppins Returns, the sequel to Mary Poppins, which takes place 20 years after the original, has Emily Blunt playing Mary Poppins and Dick Van Dyke, the original “Bert” coming back, but playing Mr. Dawes Jr. this time around. Cosmopolitan published this fun slideshow showing us what the new cast looks like next to their original counterparts. - JGW


CorePower Yoga, Back Bay

We’re already pledging to get back on our best fitness routines for the new year, and with the new CorePower Yoga Back Bay studio opening soon, we really will have no excuse. The new Back Bay location will join the list of their studios in Fenway, Seaport, and the South End. For all new CorePower yogi’s - they offer one week free classes upon signing up! New year, new you, and no excuses! - JD


Spruce Peak

It’s that time of year when us New Englanders start thinking about ski trips and long weekend getaways. One destination that’s always at the top of our list is Stowe, Vermont. There is something for everyone in this ski town. Even if you aren’t hitting the slopes, you can still have an action packed weekend visiting Von Trapp Brewery, dining out, taking a gondola ride, indulging in a spa day, ice skating or snowmobiling. You can do as much or as little as you want just be sure to pack layers! As for lodging, one of the most convenient and luxurious places to stay is The Lodge at Spruce Peak formerly known as Stowe Mountain Lodge. It could be a wonderful spot to ring in the new year if you haven’t made plans yet! - JGW

Art Basel

If you’re wondering what everyone’s doing in Miami showing off beautiful galleries and unique pieces of art, here’s the deal, for us Americans, Art Basel is sort of like the Super Bowl week of art in Miami. Art Basel founded in 1970, stages the world’s premier art shows for modern and contemporary art in Basel, Hong Kong and Miami to bring together artists, galleries and noteable collectors. Throughout the weekend there are a number of VIP parties sponsored by various luxury brands and celebrity sightings. ArtNews is keeping enthusiasts updated on all things happening at Art Basel in Miami so you can follow along from home. - JGW


by Jen Royle

The North End is adding a new restaurant to their roster, but this one comes with a twist. TABLE, by Jen Royle, is opening on Hanover Street December 19th and will host 2-3 seatings a night, where guests will be seated together at two long custom tables! We can’t wait to dig our forks into the 15 layer eggplant parm, or the carbonara! Also, they’ll be open for Brunch on Sunday’s, so North End residents can enjoy some chicken & waffles, or breakfast flatbread in the comfort of their own neighborhood. As Chef/Owner, Jen Royle says, “come as strangers, leave as friends”!


Google Home Hub

While there are a few items on both of our lists, we both have our eye on this particular gift! The new Google Home Hub is the perfect gift for anyone on your list! While we multitask year round, this time of the year can be particularly hectic so we can use all the help we can get. From helping to personalize your morning routine, to finding the most delicious recipes for your holiday dinner, The Google Home Hub seems to do it all - finally an Elf on the Shelf that actually helps out! - JD
