Culturally rich Portsmouth, NH is a perfect walking city. Filled with jazz clubs, dining, boutiques and historic architecture there is so much to fill all the senses. Terry and I decided we would check out some local boutiques since we were only a stone's throw away from the hotel.
Our fist stop was Prelude, who is best known for carrying the finest skincare and body products. We met the owner, Holly, who gave us the background on the Dr. Hauschka skincare line. All products are certified natural, containing the highest-quality plant and mineral ingredients. Each ingredient is based on its individual effects on the skin, as well as the way it interacts with other ingredients.
Holly, who is in her 60's, has been using the line for 20 years. You'll have to trust me when I say she had better skin than most women in their thirties. She gave us some samples and my favorite products are the Regenerating Day Cream and the Regenerating Serum.
Usually only sold in spas, you can call Holly to order, or ask her specific questions about which products are best for your skin type. 603-431-0694
Our next stop was Puttin' on the Glitz, which is a colorful and fun little boutique specializing in hats, jewels, handbags, and accessories.
Liz-Ology was a really cool boutique with prices that are affordable. You don't have to break the bank to get a really stylish outfit here.
Trendy décor: Check. Beautiful summer dresses: Check. Need to return? Check check. This is now a must-stop boutique for me each time I visit the city.
We stopped for lunch at Popovers on the Square, it is a cute little café serving all day brunch, salads, soups, and sandwiches. They are have a bakery and specialize in wedding cakes, which is convenient for anyone planning to host their wedding at the nearby Wentworth by the Sea Hotel + Spa.
Terry and I were so pumped for this trip that we dubbed it the Thelma + Louise trip, (sorry no clean cut Brad Pitt, pre-Angelina, to be found anywhere). Sigh.
So, there we are walking through the parking lot and what do we spy with our little eye? Yup. The perfect Thelma and Louise car.
Me: "Oh, we NEED to take a photo of it!"
Terry: "Okay. We definitely should."
I set up camera accordingly. We decide we'll snap a quick shot since no one is around.
Me: "We totally should hop in for a second."
Terry: "No way. When I modeled, the owners of cars like these were beyond fanatical."
Me: "You only live once..."
We met somewhere in between my crazy antics and her more sensible behavior.
If you are the owner of the vehicle, I'm sorry. My bad. If I left a fingerprint, just let me know and I'll come wash it for you. -Thelma xoxo
