Celeb Spottings? MJ Ludlow has you covered

You already know how popular MJ styles are with the celebs (Katy Perry or Lauren Conrad, anyone?) but what about actual celeb spottings?

One of the many perks of working at Mint Julep's Ludlow outpost is the number of movies and TV shows you see being filmed. Just the other day, I saw HBO's Boardwalk Empire being filmed and today there's a whole crew set-up right across the street. Not to mention the many times I've seen Gossip Girl being filmed - not to brag or anything.

So whether you're looking for a new cocktail dress or just feel like celeb spotting, stop by MJ Ludlow - clearly the place to be in the Lower East Side.

Calling all Animal Lovers!

My dear friend Brittany Bang opened her dream store, Audrey's, yesterday on Newbury Steet! I'm so proud of her. The store is STUNNING, well stocked and exactly what Back Bay pet owners need. If you're in the area, pop in and stock up on all things pets! Make sure you say hello from the Mint Julep ladies...

From Brittany:

The idea for Audrey’s was born when I moved to a studio apartment on Beacon Street. I was young, single and shacking up with a Bulldog named Audrey. As I walked Audrey along the Charles one morning, I asked a few neighbors where the local pet shop was. There wasn’t one. If I wanted a big bag of food, I’d have to venture over the river to Cambridge.

Audrey and I lived it up in the city for the next few years while I worked in the “real world” for Boston’s famed baseball team and for New England’s favorite ice cream brand. Somewhere in between spring training and scooping ice cream, I got married and added three new pets to my family. Only months after settling into our new Back Bay brownstone, I said, “enough is enough.” I was done with the real world and we were out of dog food again.

Bulk bags of food, home delivery and reliable dog walkers…what more could a city dweller ask for? Welcome to Audrey’s!

Bastille Day in Harvard Square!

"The Most International Bastille Day Celebration this side of the Seine" will be kicking off at 2:00 PM this Sunday, July 11th, in Harvard Square! Join the celebration as revelers celebrate French culture and nibble on French food while cheering on Spain and the Netherlands in the World Cup game (which will be played for the crowds on the event stage).
After the game, stick around the square to be serenaded by performers from France, Scotland and Ireland and dance the night away in the streets with Moroccan artist, DJ Kamal. We love our home in Harvard Square and we are so excited to to partake in this truly special festival.

J'espère te voir bientôt!
