Turtle Time

If you can’t tell by my face in this photo, I’m OVER it, and by it, I  mean the fact that it’s back to snow flurries and decimal temps in Chicago. At this point, 3 layers, daily uber rides and a winter coat are all necessary to survive. Another necessity this season for me has…

Chicago Go-Tos

For someone who enjoys traveling so much, coming home to Chicago is always an amazing feeling. As I  look out the window of my Uber, I always love being greeted by the skyline and know I’ve chosen a world-class city to call home. Between showing around out of town guests or receiving texts from friends…

Checked Out

With February just days away, I’ve officially checked out of January. January was our trial month of 2018, right? So far, so good, so I  guess I’ll renew my subscription for the rest of the year. Another thing I’m always renewing my subscription on is Netflix my vintage buffalo check shirt. Although that lumberjack or…

Grey Days

Ever since the Fifty Shades of Grey franchise hit the world, I  seriously cannot think of anything else when I’m wearing more than one grey piece in an outfit. This look is more two shades of grey, but I’m loving them both. Grey has always been and perhaps always be, the perfect neutral int the…

The Year Ahead

Oh My My My, (seriously, cannot get enough of this Troye Sivan song) how is it already the last full week of January?! Is time ever going to slow down… guess not? I figured with this first month of 2018 coming to a close, it’d be nice to check in on how those resolutions I…

Jack of all Trades

For someone who isn’t into face masks, eye creams, or other grooming trends, the one consistent place I put my effort into is my hair. After looking at the insta-story I  posted, recapping my favorite looks of 2017, I  noticed that my hair looks completely different as I  went through each month. Short, long, blonde, chestnut…

Take Flight in Aviate

Like many of you, travel is a big part of my life. I’m either looking for my next dream destination online or already sitting at the airport, deciding whether I’m going to eat Chili’s Too or if I’ll be dropping a small fortune on tabloids before boarding my flight. Travel wear has seen its share…

2018 Inspiration

How is everyone’s 2018 going so far?…. cold, I’m assuming, but full of of optimism and positivity for what’s to come I hope! The January agenda often comes with an empty fridge, a closet purge and the dismantling your Christmas tree and other decorations. This year, while doing my annual sifting through the previous year’s…

Start a Resolution

Navigating a new year with a fresh perspective involving living presently and with vulnerability

New Year, New Mindset

First and foremost, I hope everyone has had a fantastic and relaxing holiday season with friends and family! It’s been about a week since my last post due to lots of travel and festivities in between. Reconnecting with old friends from high school and then having some downtime with my family and dogs was just…

Burrr-gandy

Before I head to the sunshine state, (seriously, I’m counting down the hours) I  decided to share one more winter-y look and today it’s all about my love of burgundy. You’ve seen these pants before, but seriously I can’t get enough and it seems like they were a huge hit on Instagram, fielding many questions…

Staying Merry

As I mentioned last week, the holidays are fast approaching. It seems like they near closer and closer each year. As the holiday rush gets even crazier, I think it’s important to think about how to maintain sanity in perhaps the most stressful time of year. This year I’m staying as level headed as possible…
