Our Boston live show was extra special as it was a homecoming of sorts (I went to Bentley and lived in Boston for 3 years after college), and it involved lots of friends + family! My mom flew in from Charleston to be our “books” guest, my aunt drove in all the way from Connecticut, and two of my best friends from college joined us on stage for a miniature roast. (And after the show, I went out with maybe 20 of my college girlfriends… so fun catching up!)
For this trip, we partnered with the Hotel Commonwealth, who generously gave us each our own suite. I LOVE this hotel. It’s in the perfect location (Kenmore Square which is steps away from Fenway Park and a quick walk to Newbury Street), and it was so charming. The hotel has a variety of luxury guest rooms, suites, and a collection of signature suites. Each of the signature suites are themed after local inspirations and I was lucky enough to get to stay in the “Reading Suite,” which was really cool.

Hotel Commonwealth is also the Official Hotel of the Boston Red Sox! There were little nods to the Sox woven throughout the hotel’s decor and they even have a baseball elevator which was such a fun little surprise!
Fun fact: the Reading Suite actually contains over 50 signed copies of books; all written by authors who have stayed in that very room.
Hanging out in the green room with my aunt (she is so funny and had a “BOP” t-shirt made!!!), my mom, and Tara Foley. Tara is the founder of Follain, which is one of my favorite clean beauty destinations – we interviewed her about how she built her business, favorite beauty products and so much more. We are dying to get her on the podcast for a full interview – she is so smart and a wealth of knowledge.
My mom and I!
Love them. 🙂
In a funny little twist, two of my best friends from college (Jill and Erin!) came on stage to share a couple embarrassing stories about me from college.
And Tara was an absolute WEALTH of knowledge, talking about how she started Follain, why clean beauty is so important, her own relationships + friendships, and more!
We’re heading to Nashville today for the last of our summer shows but will be announcing our Fall tour dates in August! Can’t wait!
