*protip: printing these signs at 11×17 will be cheaper than a bigger size, but copy shops like Staples and FedEx can do either for you. You can also print large signs at home and tile them together like a puzzle. Just takes a little patience, a long ruler, some tape and a sharp exacto. Here is a good tutorial for word and for photoshop
I’ve been inspired by the Women’s March sign design I’ve seen on instagram the last couple days. I need a digital flip board for all I want to say, picking one statement is so hard. I’ll be at the Women’s March in Boston with my 6 yr old son and my husband. Enjoy your right to peaceful protest!
A few of my favorite things about Rome, Italy…
The colors of the Campo de’ Fiori Market, (which is next to a fantastic bakery, Campo de’Fiori).
Michelangelo’s impossibly fluid marble.
Painted angels on high (this after hours tour is on my bucket list).
Bernini’s work; risqué and otherwise
The largest amphitheater ever built, (buy tickets ahead of time to lessen a massive line)
A tart + sweet cocktail with a twist of orange, (try the Negroni’s flirty sister… the Aperol Sprtiz).
My 3 favorite Roman pasta dishes: Amatriciana, Carbonara, Cacio e Pepe.
Finish it off with Gelato, (my favorite cone was topped with whipped cream via Venchi).
We spent 4 days of our 2 week Italian holiday in Rome, not nearly enough. I’d go back in an instant.

St. Patrick’s Day in Boston might as well be a public holiday. Particularly in the Southie neighborhood, where the JHill studio is located. The city’s parade comes makes its way the entire neighborhood, and celebrating goes on well after the spectacle wraps. Whether you’ll be braving the crowds this year or not, check-out our guide to this year’s holiday…
EAT Authentic: Eat some St. Patrick’s day classics at Shenannigans, right in the heart of the parade. Known for their Irish specials like bangers, mash, beans and shepherd’s pie, they also off Guinness on draft 365 days a year. Do yourself a favor and get there before noon to avoid insane crowds (and green-beer drinkers).
SEE a Little History: Check out some of Southie’s Irish heritage at St. Augustine’s Cemetery, Boston’s first Catholic graveyard. A little off the parade’s route, this spot serves as a historical monument and a nice break from the crowds.
LISTEN to Live Irish Tunes: The Beehive‘s 9th annual St. Patrick’s Day party includes speciality drinks and traditional fare, but the main highlight has to be Irish-Singer Kate McD’s performance.
WALK the Irish Heritage Trail: Available all-year long, but extra special on Ireland’s biggest holiday. With over 20 sites spanning three miles, you’ll learn the history of some well-known monuments and many hidden gems.
HAPPY ST PATTYS DAY TO YOU!
Last month of Singapore in our 2016 calendar. The pattern was inspired by architectural lines and purple lights. If I was vacationing in the Lion City, I would definitely need a few Singapore Slings just to get through the humidity. But till I’m Singapore-bound, I will make the classic cocktail in my Boston kitchen.
The Singapore Sling was created by a Hainanese bartender in the early 1900’s at the Raffles Hotel in Singapore. It has since gone through many variations, but at it’s heart it is Gin + Pineapple + Cherry Brandy.
