Beautifully made, delicate gold jewelry designed by the talented Nikki Stalling.
I love owning something that no one else has. Liza Laird creates the softest, most beautiful knitwear in almost any color that you can dream of. My personal favorite? Fingerless gloves with a matching scarf! I’m constantly running around the city and need something that keeps my hands warm, but also free to us my phone etc while I walk.
Agent Provocateur has the best service (and lingerie) in Boston. Don’t let the storefront fool you, it really doesn’t showcase how gorgeous and well made AP lingerie is. Stephanie are both so incredibly helpful, and if you mention Megan Graham Beauty upon your arrival to AP you will get a special surprise!

Sorellina has the most delicious food I have had since traveling to Italy. The best seat in the house? Ask to be seated at the bar with Jeremy, who not only makes the most delicious drinks, he also suggests the best things from the menu. I love to sit at the bar here as it makes it fun, all while providing an impeccable dining experience.

First Tracks Ski
My favorite online store.
The Ski Shop Ajax
Located right at the base of Ajax, in Aspen, this little shop has everything, and a very knowledgeable and friendly staff. It’s so much easier to demo great skis while traveling than to take your own to Aspen. They have a great selection of head skis which are my favorites, and you can rent a locker in their lounge which makes skiing super convenient as the gondola is only steps away.
Want glowing, flawless skin? See Boston-based dermatologist Dr. Tom Rohrer at Skin Care Physicians.

Abe and Louie's. I find a steakhouse to be the easiest place to eat healthy as you can choose items a la carte. Abe and Louie's has an amazing atmosphere, the kindest staff, and the best baked sweet potato I have ever had!

Harbor Light Interactive. I’m always a bit shocked when I go online and see sites that function….less than optimally. Liza Coyne, who is the creative (and intellectual) mastermind behind the brand has such a vast knowledge of how to make a site not only look great, but function and drive business as well. A site created by her is a wise investment for any business.
