Summer Inspiration from South Shore Plaza, a Simon Mall + a Giveaway


If you have been reading the blog for some time or have been following me on Instagram, then you have seen that I have partnered with Simon Malls to highlight the malls in the Boston-MA region. As a part of this wonderful partnership, I got to spend some time at the South Shore Plaza in Braintree,MA. It was a mall that I frequented quite a lot when I was doing my masters at Northeastern University. So going back after so many years was a pretty special experience and moreover, I was blown over by how much the mall had changed over the years and has had some pretty cool additions.

Keep reading to read about my shopping experience at a few store. Plus there are some really fun giveaways at the end of the post, that you might want to check out =))

First stop – Nordstrom

Nordstrom is hands down my favorite store to be shopping at, whether it is in a mall or online. But the one at the South Shore Plaza blew me away with their home section. It is a home decor lover’s haven and also a perfect stop to get unique, meaningful gifts for someone.

Shhh… I am snapping pillow

Summer dresses and vacation ready accessories, I must have gone a little crazy shopping here but seriously every summer trend – from floral prints and wrap-dresses to basket bags and tassel earrings, the collection in this store is amazing.

Bare Minerals  

I have used a few products from Bare Minerals here and there down the years, mainly their lipsticks and mascaras. But last month at the store at South Shore Plaza, I got a match consultation done and learnt about the powder foundation. To say the least, I am a convert!  ( I have been a liquid foundation girl forever!)  I’ll be sharing over the weeks about how the foundation has been working for my skin – but so far I have been loving it.

The lip-glosses have my heart though! I am not a lip gloss person at all but now I am obsessed with the shades and how they feel ( and smell ) and they are super-pigmented as well! I must say that, that one has visit was a game changer.

This lip-gloss set is a good start if you want to play with some shades.

The Paper Store 

Let me tell you a silly thing that I love doing! Ever since I was a little girl, I loved going in greeting card-shops and browsing through the sweet messages and beautiful art on them and buying them for my own little collection, with no occasion to give them out in mind. So a trip to the mall occasionally comes with has a guilty pleasure trip to The Paper Store =)) But lately, I have been finding such quirky and fun pieces in the store aside from cards and gifts. Like this dinnerware set from Kate Spade! Summer backyard picnics just got some added glam!

  1. When we lived in Sharon that was our first and favorite Mall. My how it’s grown over the years…the stores were once outdoors until they put them under one roof…. love it! My mom is still a loyal fan! We have moved since those days next door to the Burlington Mall now…. how lucky to have two amazing malls so close by… makes our Mall shopping addiction so easy….Lol

    1. wow is it? I dint know that it was more of an outdoor mall.
      That is definitely changed a lot then – the mall is huge and has such fab stores now.
      You should check it now if you get a chance.
