Work out gear. Made chic. Welcome to AV-RA Performance, the latest line of simple, well crafted goods from desginer Avra Myers, designer at A Ruby. 

Hello. Can you hear that?

These clothes speak to me. I can wear them to the gym. I can wear them after the gym to run errands. They are sleek, well made, and well designed. 

As a newish mom to a bouncing baby boy and a 2.5 year old I NEED comfort that doesn't sacrifice style. There is only so much Lulu you can get away with;)

Check out Avra and her lines at her latest pop-up, now through June 30 at the Derby Street Shoppes in Hingham

Whole Lotta Ricotta: A Recipe Round-up

Check out Whole Lotta Ricotta

by Noelani at Mode


WARNING: Once you make your own ricotta, and taste the delicious results, there is simply no going back.  

It is delightfully easy for a home cook of any level and worth every ounce of that minimal effort. From there, options abound. There are the usual hits: pizza, calzone, tiramisu, and the decadent.....breakfast with honey and fruit, light as air lemon ricotta pancakes, and even quick breads spiced with orange.

Here's some more of my own creations.....

Day at the Zoo: Summer Jacket Edition

Above: Cos jacket (courtsey of), Madewell jeans (similar), Vans slip on mule (YES, a Vans MULE), Super sunglasses, Vince t-shirt


Cos inspired me to take a few quick outfit snaps last week. Aren't familiar with Cos? It's H&M's cousin.....sleek, simple, with a focus on high end materials and craftsmanship. It also recently opened it's first local outpost on Newbury Street this fall. 

This sweet Cos coat is modern, in a scuba sweatshirt material, minimalist, and utilitarian, with a hood that pops out in all the right spots and even snaps off when necessary. It swings, it sways, and it was just what I needed for an outing to the zoo with the littles.

Daphne decided on a bolder outfit choice, breaking out some Mini Rodini tiger leggings and rubber boots for the day. She is a risk taker. 

Worth noting- Cos also has an amazing line of clothes for the kiddos. Check it. 

Her favorite at the zoo, after all the wardrobe decisions? The lions. Go figure.
