In Part 1 of this series, I talked about our favorite places to stay and eat in Old San Juan.  But there's so much more to Old San Juan than restaurants and tourists.  There's plenty of fun to be had.  And, if you add a little imagination (hey there, kids), it's magic. Here are our top recommendations: 1.  Buy Yourself a Hat at...
About this time last year, with Spring Break looming on the horizon and wanderlust creeping into my veins, I sat Mike down in the kitchen.  The kids were in bed, the Scotch was poured and it was time to talk Plans (Mike's least favorite topic).  "Babe," I said.  "I really want to go somewhere different for Spring Break.  We spend most of...
Traveling during the holidays...it's inevitable for many of us who live far from our families. It's so fun to be there, but getting there is a bit of a challenge...and packing. "No fanks!" as Sienna says. I usually just throw all of my current favorite clothing in the suitcase and call it good, but so many times I get to my...
If I had to pick my very favorite month to visit Philly....it might actually be December.  Despite the cold, despite the gray skies and the fact that it's dark by 4PM(!!)...Philly serves up one heck of a winter wonderland.  Rothman Rink, smack downtown in Center City, is a perfect example.   Lights twinkle, music plays, and you skate around this...
Don't get me wrong:  I have nothing against Linvilla Orchards.  We go and play, ride the hayrides, eat cider doughnuts, and just deal with the traffic/lines/masses of people that mean October at Linvilla.  But I've been looking for an alternative - something chill, organic, and easy.  For those weekends when apple picking means just that:  spending an hour or so...
    Gang, I was so incredibly honored to be featured in the July issue of Mainline Today magazine!  There's a pic of me (in sneaks, naturally) being silly, and a little Q&A where we talk about my favorite designers and trends for summer.  If you'd like, you can read the whole article here. Their July issue is my fav - it...
  SUMMER.  I wait all year for the season of beach days and s'mores and bubbles and sand between your toes.  I don't even mind the accompanying sweaty little heads and complaints of boredom because eventually sprinklers are turned on, popsicles are ready, fireflies come out, and summer works it's magic on us all. We just spent a glorious few days...
  It's back!  Spruce St. Harbor Park, one of our very favorite Philadelphia summer pop-ups has opened for the summer!  It is - hands down - my very favorite place to take the family on a Friday or Saturday night. Ready to loosen that tie, Mike?       Mike and I can have a drink, the kids can...well.     wearing top:  Free People Buckley Tee (with this lace...
  Any longtime reader of this blog (or my instagram feed, @shanachristine) might have picked up on the fact that Raines, my oldest, is obsessed with WWII.  We don't really know where it came from.  He went from a train obsession to planes and then to....war.  WWII, specifically, with a special passion for the dogfights that happened in Pacific, and...
Ok.  I've been hunting and trying on and discarding and....anyway.  Here's where my head is.  And I even have a few (terribly informal) #dressingroomselfies to better illustrate what I'm thinking. // JavaScript is currently disabled in this browser.
