I love S'well bottles. They keep cold drinks cold for 12 hours and hot drinks hot for 24 hours (!) and come in such fun patterns. S'well has partnered with photographer Gray Malin on beautiful & beachy bottles in a limited edition collection. Malin lends his aerial photography on 4 bottles. I snatched up the Bondi Beach one (after seeing the collection on a Boston blogger's Instagram), and there are 3 others that are equally awesome. Want one too? Hurry, they collection is selling out quick(!) but they are available on several sites.
After our wedding in late September, DC and I are heading to Hawaii for nearly 2 weeks! I am so excited. Neither of us have been before and once we started researching & planning the trip, it was clear this would be a trip of a lifetime.
We will be there nearly 2 weeks and are staying on Oahu at The Modern Honolulu (in Honolulu, natch), then heading to Kauai to stay at an Airbnb on the east coast, and capping off the trip on Maui at the Four Seasons (the big splurge!).
I've been looking up things to do, what to eat, where to shop etc., for a while now, but we'd love some recommendations from those who have been there. I also would love any packing tips, as I am going to try to fit everything in just a carry-on.
Worden Hallin South Boston, a.k.a. Southie, offers a true brunch menu on Saturday and Sunday. My friend Sara and I were invited to check it out this past weekend. I love breakfast and she loves lunch, so Worden Hall's brunch menu that splits items by Breakfast and Lunch was perfect for us.
I started out with a Bloody Mary (necessary after a night out on Friday). With my usual request of extras spicy & extra olives, Worden Hall's bartender did not disappoint. Look at all those olives!
To follow what I stated above, I got breakfast and Sara got lunch. My choice was the house-smoked pastrami hash with carmelized potatoes, 2 poached eggs, chili hollandaise, and grilled bread. The pastrami had a good smoke and I loved the hollandaise. Dipping the grilled bread in the runny yolk? Sooooo. Good. I wish the potatoes were a bit more crispy, but I did very much enjoy the mix of regular & sweet. Sara got the deep dish margarita pizza which she said hit the spot. I liked the presentation with the large basil leaves.
I also started with a raw & roasted brussels sprouts salad which was so yummy and fresh. The texture mix of the raw & cooked brussels with salty chorizo, sunflowers and shaved parmesan was perfect.
Our waitress was very friendly and attentive. Pricing was fair and portions good-sized. Check out their outdoor space too!
Thanks, Worden Hall, we will back back!
