Gloucester, MA - Sugar Magnolias







Whenever I'm on the North Shore of Massachusetts and my usual toast for breakfast routine just bores me to tears, I always head over to Sugar Magnolias in neighboring Gloucester. Here the breakfast options are a force to be reckoned with ... items like lobster omelettes, crab cakes benedict, Almond Joy or Carrot Cake pancakes, and Smore's French Toast. 



Located on Main Street, Sugar Magnolias is a loud and bustling spot that is always packed, so don't be surprised if you have to wait in line for this breakfast of champions. And be prepared not to be hungry for the rest of the day, portions are huge! 





If you want to see some of the most mouth-watering and inventive breakfast items that Sugar Magnolia's is famous for, watch this video clip:

London, England - Chelsea In Bloom

This year marked the 10th Anniversary of Chelsea In Bloom and the theme was 'Fairy Tales': the creativity and artistry of how the retailers interpreted this theme was just spectacular.
