Boston

I thought I would have a lot of photos after my trip, but it's turns out to be an idea I didn't quite fulfill - I have lots of family and friends orientated photos, and typical tourist ones, but I don't find them interesting or un-invasive to privacy enough to post. I didn't do anything particularly fascinating, even though it was an absolutely fantastic holiday. I basically ate a lot more food that I should, and spent a lot of money shopping - as well as seeing old landmarks in my early life, such as the place I lived (Symphony Road) and old friends, and places I should have/did remember. We stayed in a ridiculously nice hotel (Fairmont Copley Plaza) thanks to one of my mothers friends suggestion that we bid online from inexpensive bookings on some kind of hotel eBay.
The best meal I ate still remains the Legal Seafood dinner - I went searching in vain for an apparently amazing Japanese restaurant, where everything on the menu is in Japanese, and the food is incredible - but I couldn't find it, which was a shame. I didn't find any sushi that rivaled the place I buy it from in Ireland, which really surprised me. A lot of food in America seems to be unnecessarily sweet, actually - it's like everything has been dipped in sugar-water - and real butter is pretty much nonexistent, as far as I can tell. When I got back to Ireland I ate everything slathered in butter and cream for about a day and a half (I got back on Monday) I was dying for it... haha! What of other dining experiences that were memorable - a lovely Mexican restaurant, where I was denied a margherita, got ticked off, then remembered I'm still 3 years underage in the U S of A. Oh dear.
I didn't really do much clothes shopping, as the selection was quite weak - I only bought items in American Apparel that I had planned to buy in Europe, so all the money I has saved went on lovely new brushes. Hurrah! You can click HERE to find my haul details, and also HERE to find a street-shot of an outfit on LB.

  11. I was just in Mexico and found all of the food to be unnecessarily sweet as well - even moreso than I found it to be when I lived in the states. Also, I don't know how people function without real butter. Unless you're vegan, there's no excuse for substitutions!

    I am pretty jealous of your trip; I would love to be able to see more of New England. Also, I have a younger sister who would basically pee herself over your MAC haul.
