Day trip to Fairport and Pittsford

Thursday I headed to Pittsford and Fairport with my daughter and youngest son to do some research for an upcoming article. We had a nice time browsing all the shops and the weather was perfect. We had lunch at the Towpath Café in Fairport and sat on the covered patio where we could watch the lift bridge over the canal in operation.

Getaway weekend to Erie, PA

Last weekend we went on a getaway weekend to Erie, PA, mainly because I had gotten passes to Splash Lagoon and had to use them by the end of June. The kids had a great time there. In addition to Splash Lagoon, we went to Waldameer Amusement Park, explored the Erie waterfront and went to the Erie Maritime Museum. It was a nice trip from the Buffalo area, as it only takes about 90 minutes to get there.

Exploring Williamsville

My daughter and I visited Williamsville today to do some research for an article I'm putting together for Forever Young Magazine. There is a lot to see and do....you'll have to wait to read the article in a few months. One of the places we checked out was Monarch, which carries jewelry and accessories. Almost all the jewelry was $10!!! And it was nice!

Great place to get a gift





I took my car to Bubble Boy carwash on Transit Road in East Amherst today. As I pulled in I noticed New York International Style accessories boutique. Actually, you can't help but notice it as it's located in a bright pink house! I had been there a few years ago when they first opened and remembered that they had some nice things. Since I needed to get birthday gift for one of my friends, I decided to stop in after the car wash.

Boy, what a nice selection of jewelry and other items. I had a hard time picking out something, as there was so much to choose from! I did eventually find something I thought she'd like.

If you are looking for special occasion, bridal or prom jewelry and accessories this is the place to come.
