    Depends what you want. You can get most stores (Steve Madden's good for shoes, there's an Urban Outfitters, AE, GAP etc) on Newberry Street (not sure on the spelling I'm afraid, but it's pronounced like that!), it's not all Chanel and the likes. Definitely check out Government Center (that's where the most central Abercomrbie is if that's your thing) and Quincy Market (it's the world's longest food court or something, but really excellent food, and so many different kinds). Museum of Fine Arts is good too, and the Isabella Stuart Gardener (again, spelling's probably off there!) Museum is supposed to be a nicer version of the Frick Collection in NYC. Harvard's worth a look, it's pretty, and the polaroid building is just funny. Off the top of my head, that's it... I was staying with a friend who studies there, so I wasn't really doing much touristy stuff.
    Any recommendations for bars, clubs and restaurants? Those are the things that usually require insider info!

    Shopping is a given, I'll be going everywhere! Museums also a given, I'm going to all the talks and lectures at the Harvard art museums too, and I'll probably take a day trip to Salem too. I'll be spending a lot of time around Harvard anyway because my friend is at the Business School there so he said he'd take me to a few lectures and show me round. Apparently I'm his tool for getting in to undergrad parties... not sure how that's going to work!

    The shopping will cease to be economical when you're paying £70k a year in fees!

    jesus christ, i didnt realise it would be that expensive. I applied to the US for undergrad and it wasn't as expensive, I completely forgot that postgrad might cost more *rolleyes*

    What I need, then, is a holiday in the US.

    Bars and clubs I can't help you on I'm afraid, not being over 21 :p:, and at my friend's uni they tend to get the older students to buy alcohol and just drink at peoples' apartments.

    Restaurants... there's an amazing place in China Town called China Pearl that does the best, cheapest Dim Sum in the world. We ate so much food (seriously, you should have seen the stacks of baskets), and it cost us about $12 per head I think. Mmm... And as I said, you've got to check out Quincy Market at Government Centre (especially the smoothie stall, although the popcorn place that's on your right just as you enter opposite Starbucks is supposed to be amazing too). We cooked a lot ourselves 'cause it's cheaper, so I'm not really 'up' on restaurants I'm afraid, but you've got to have some cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory. It's soooooo good!

    You know that feeling you get when you buy something new and you want to show it off....

    Well off you go, make us jealous!

    This week I've bought:




    The dress and shoes are to wear to mr Fudge's brother wedding. Mr Fudge is being the best man

    I wouldn't wear that dress myself but it does look pretty great on you! So cool

    My sister got me to spend £100 or so in River Island yesterday (pro-tip: never let your sister talk you into taking her to a shop with you ;P). I guess I'll try and get pictures of what I bought later... got a fair amount of items considering how pricey River Island is, though.

    Please ignore black vest underneath. Couldn't be bothered to take it off.
    Bought so much other stuff today but can't be bothered to post it all. This was my favorite from today though
