Last minute gifts @ Five Janes – and a cute sweater for you!
(Washington) Washington Depot is SO pretty with its display of twinkling white lights throughout the trees in town. It’s not to be missed ?! While you’re there, be sure you stop at Five Janes. It’s a cute gift store filled with awesome things for all your best pals. And don’t forget to treat yourself to a great new sweater. You’ve been nice all year, right?!
Take a time out @ Forsythia Skin Care Studio
(Woodbury) Treat yourself to the most incredible facial at Forsythia Skin Care Studio. Kate Sobotka has magic in her fingers and made our poor dry faces the moistest they’ve been in a long time. (Sorry for the m-word). The face massage is everything! And so is the relaxation. Healthy & glowing skin. ✔
Lunch is HAPPENING at At The Corner South Street❕
(Litchfield) Litchfield’s new taqueria & cocktail bar At The Corner South Street is the coolest place in town. Period. The bar glows, the music vibes, and the food & cocktails are excellento! They even have a stylish selection of locally produced gourmet items for sale (think hot sauce, honey, salt, candles).
Tip: Ask the cocktail whisperer for a “dealer’s choice” and they’ll come up with a unique drink just for you based on your likes!
Shop for good @ Hope & Honey
(Litchfield) Hope & Honey is Litchfield’s newest gift boutique with the biggest ♥️. It was born out of “dreaming out loud” during COVID when mom Leah and her family (hubs and her 4 kids) decided to open a store for a cause. You’ll find fair trade & ethically sourced items for the home & you. Gourmet tea and local honey, too!
Hope & Honey’s mission is to raise awareness and funds for the fight against human trafficking.
Wander in the White Memorial woods ?
Wearing cozy ponytail trucker hats (with ear flaps!) made by Kent-based TrailHeads. Check them out online for sporty accessories for runners and outdoorsy people!
White Memorial has over 40 miles of soft, needly trails. Breathe in those holiday scents, and don’t forget to look up. ⬆
Discover the magic of The Hidden Acorn
(Woodbury) Finish decking your halls in style with a stop at The Hidden Acorn. Besides a wonderful array of retro Christmas decor, sweet felt tree ornaments, and garland galore…they’re stocked with sustainable, locally-sourced, and imaginative gifts! It’s also a great place to stock up on your entertaining accoutrement!
Dinner by the fireside @ 1754 House Restaurant
(Woodbury) And a festive cocktail too. Just call us “Plum Crazy” and “Holly Jolly”! We had roasted sweet potato + apple soup, cast iron mac + cheese, and baked Brie; because there is NO such thing as too much cheese. Yumm!! 1754 House is extra cozy this time of year. We love it there! Could be the perfect spot to book your Christmas Eve dinner?
Find your NYE outfit at WKND ?
(Warren) Award-winning style for women, men, and kids can be found at WKND; an awesome boutique tucked away in the center of Warren (pop. 1461). Whether you plan to greet 2022 on the couch, out in a field at a bonfire, or living it up at a sparkly party, you should feel cute!! Go see David (owner) and Nina (stylist), they’ll gladly help you find your perfect look!
And we recommend setting your Spotify to Kimberley Locke’s new holiday album Christmas is Here for your drive ♥️?. Enjoy!
