This evening I went to Boston with my boyfriend to grab a bite to eat and do some shopping. I even got him to go to Urban Outfitters (shocking), but overall it was very fun besides the cold, windy weather!

If you ever get a chance to go to Boston, I suggest you check out Harvard Square in Cambridge. I'm sure you've all heard of Harvard College, but the area its in is a really great place. There's shops (Urban Outfitters, Lush, American Apparel, etc.) and great restaurants, cafes, bars and small coffee shops. The brick streets are also beautiful around Christmas time with all the lights around the city.

Here's some pictures:

After dinner, we stopped into a local coffee/pastry shop for hot chocolate and french macaroons. I've never had them and I know they're smaller than regular ones but I couldn't resist trying! :)

Bargain Buy #1

As a college student, I'm constantly looking for affordable products that actually give results. It is very discouraging to spend money trying something new and being unhappy with it. One product that I've tried and loved is
Garnier Fructis "3 Minute Undo - Dryness Reversal Treatment".

I picked up this a few months ago in Target for only $3! I have thick hair, which tends to get very dry in the cooler months. For such a cheap price I honestly did not expect great results, but after using this on a regular basis, I LOVE the way it makes my hair feel. The ends are no longer dry, and my hair feels really soft.

The consistency is really thick, so if you have fine hair this may not work for you. It also has little beads in it, almost like a body wash would, which I found was very unique. Overall I definitely would repurchase this product again!

Have any of you tried this?
