$265 – houseoffraser.co.uk
My hubby and I decided we needed to get out of the house, even though it was dreary outside. We took a drive to St. Paul and travelled the river road. The houses are amazing along the river and they have the best views. St. Paul is our capital city and super charming, but we don’t spend much time there (we’re more team Minneapolis), so it was really nice to drive around. We stopped along the river and had a great view of the cool dog park on the other side. Even with these cold temps, the dogs could not resist the water!
We then stopped at Harriet Island and looked at the paddle boats. We saw a gaggle of geese flying south and had to dodge their droppings!
We even made a stop along Grand Avenue. Very busy-lots of shoppers! I had to pick something up for a friend at Bibelot and we could hardly get in the door. There’s something about shopping street side-it makes it feel much more “holiday-ish” than being in a mall.
After running errands in downtown Minneapolis this morning, my nephew treated me and my sister to lunch at Kieran’s Irish Pub. Super yummy fish and chips and the atmosphere is adorable. The menu offers authentic Irish fare at very reasonable prices.
Kieran’s is located at 601 1st Avenue North, right down the street from First Avenue.
After being sidelined for two days with a migraine, I decided to get out and enjoy the beautiful weather. A trip to one of my favorite shopping destinations was on the agenda!
The Shoppes at Arbor Lakes in Maple Grove is such a wonderful shopping environment. It’s outdoors and reminds me of living on the East Coast. Great shopping, wonderful restaurants, and piped in music-what more does a girl need?
My first stop was Goodthings. I love this store-such a fun environment and the staff is super friendly. It’s a great place to buy gifts or something fun for yourself.
Next I was off to Bluebird Boutique. They also have a location on 50th and France. They had just gotten in a shipment of Elizabeth and James sweaters. It was hard to walk away, but they will be offering 20% off the store Thursday. May have to go back…
Hot Mama was next. I love this company and love that they are Minnesota based. Wendy and her staff are so friendly and knowledgable. The fall product is amazing. Their new store opens at the end of October in the old Sharper Image location. It will be twice the size. You know what that means-more yummy merchandise!
I hit the jackpot at Anthropologie! Remember the J Brand Love Story flares I featured last week? I got them on sale for over $100 off the original price. Courtney, the store manager, told me they are offering an extra 25% off all clearance through October 10th. Don’t miss out!
My last stop was Ulta to stock up on a few things. I love Ulta because they have everything. High end and drugstore cosmetics, the best hair care selection in town and so much more. It’s a one stop shop for beauty!
The Shoppes at Arbor Lakes is holding a Girl’s Night Out Thursday. Proceeds benefit Hope Chest for Breast Cancer. Shopping for a cause-I love it!
