Week of March 3
Its finally March! Spring is JUST around the corner (we hope)!

Did you all see the Oscars last night? Ellen did a fab job hosting as usual, and it was great to see our fav stars decked out in their finest. I particularly loved Cate Blanchett's dress. Lupita's sky blue gown also looked gorg against her skin. Did you have any favorites of the night?

Eco-themed events are happening left & right this week! Most importantly, the NESEA Building Energy Conference and Trade Show is Tuesday - Thursday in the Seaport. I am pumped to see the EPA's Gina McCarthy speak and the conference. Also, on Tuesday is this month's meeting of the Boston Area Sustainability Group in Kendall Sq. The topic of the month is food systems - should be an informative and thought provoking event. Finally, on Saturday, our favorite cosmetics & body shop, Follain, is holding a Meet the Maker event with featured brand Shamanuti.

At some point before May, it is essential to get to the MFA to see the museum's much-buzzed-about Boston Loves Impressionism exhibit. Once it gets warm out, a museum will seem less appealing, so we suggest going now while being indoors is still preferable!
On Thursday evening, one of our favorite boutiques, Shake the Tree, is hosting a Cocktail Party Fundraiser for the Friends of Maiti Nepal. Free massages, cocktails, and appetizers? Count us in!
But if that sounds to low key for you, check out the Deep Eddy Cranberry Launch Party, which is also on Thursday at Kings. Should be a great way to get a head start on the weekend.

St. Patrick's Day is right around the corner .... maybe its time to tell your boss that you'll be out "sick" on March 17, since the epic Southie celebration is on the 16th.
Dine Out Boston (formerly known as Restaurant Week) starts on March 16 as well! Yum, I can't wait to make some reservations at restaurants I normally couldn't afford.
Have a great week!
