Hi Everyone this should’ve come out prior to Christmas but I ran into computer problems so use this for the great “after Holiday” Shopping.  Great finds at great prices now too!  XOXO

It’s no secret that Frederick Maryland is near and dear to me as well as my family.  It’s not only the community or history – we love the involvement you see here and the great people.  Frederick also has so many lovely little boutiques/shops, restaurants that there really is no need to torture yourself at the mall.  Promise!  Here is a link of Holiday Events that should not be missed celebrate Frederick holidays 2014 . So where to begin…….
Start your day in Frederick – with +Starbucks Coffee on Market St or +The Frederick Coffee Company & Cafe on East to get you #caffeine on.  Or better yet – one of my favorites is @Juice Plate.  It is a little further up Market yet sooooo worth it.  Grab your fresh pressed juices, smoothies, muffins, omelette’s etc. and the first shot of the day – #wheatgrass!

Now your ready.  Hopefully your wearing a cute pair of walking shoes/boots etc.  

Then I start on far side of Patrick St and head right into @mavenbeautybar – too cute – great makeup too like Kevin Aucoin and airbrushing and eyebrow threading!

Than off to +Relish Decor   (one of my all time favorite little shops – fell in love day one) – the owner +Hallie Burrier has some of the best taste LOVE…… so many items for the home could take the whole shop home.  Wait I think I have – LOL  perfect for wedding gifts as well with fab. wrapping and Hallie offers home visits as well to clients to set up the perfect kitchen, pantry bar… you name it!

Across the street grab a +Rachel Zoe dress for New Years some @bedandstu boots and maybe a vintage gift or two – oooo plus some cute little “quote” prints to frame for yourself or a friend!

Now head left and hit +Black Hog Bbq or go right (more stores ) & go down market street for lunch at THE TASTING ROOM for a D-Lish cocktail or one of the many fabulous wines to recharge.  Grab a gift card too – enjoy before TR gets her face lift Jan. 5th – Feb. 16th is gonna be a great new change to the atmosphere but the food will remain the same.  Best of Frederick for just about 14 years running…… just saying……..

I am just mentioning a few of my fav’s but some many shops along the Patrick St. / Market St. paths… before I go back to my car I make sure to hit Ever Ready Sq and grab a little chocolate at The Perfect Truffle to round out the day!  Again, one for them one for me!
