The teenager inside me is slow-clapping right now. Because Shops at the Prudential Center just seriously elevated a day at the mall.
There are so few places in Boston where you can get a Tom Ford makeover, drink a Damascus Date smoothie, shop and shop some more, and then eat yaki soba, all without ever having to face the rain, snow, wind, or extreme heat of any given day in Beantown. (As if!)
My first stop? A fresh spring makeup look at the Tom Ford counter at Saks. Penny is a whiz with eyes - sister does not skimp on the liner, and that is fine with me! She also gave a step-by-step of the process, from moisturizing with Tom Ford's Infusion Daily Moisturizer to contouring with the Shade and Illuminate cream palette, so I could try channeling Ford stars Cara Delivigne or Gigi Hadid on my own.
Now when it comes to shopping, my strategy is simple - I start at the farthest corner and sweep my way through to where the food is. (I'm pretty sure Alexander the Great has used that one in war, too.)
LOFT was the perfect beginning for a start-of-spring inspired wardrobe. (Pro-tip: It's a couple doors down from JLaw's fave Boston workout spot, Flywheel.) We suited up in pretty spring skirts- and a cheeky see-through blouse for me - and took to the Pru's tree-lined corridors to soak up some sun.
