Bitter and spicy. Together, words that hopefully don’t describe me, but definitely describes the makings of the best kind of summer cocktail. Since this weekend is going to be extra hot in Chicago, you’re going to want a light and refreshing cocktail in hand. I don’t know, maybe my Trader Joe’s Spicy Paloma? Because nothing says summer cocktail quite tequila.
My mom is super crafty, and growing up, we were always doing art projects or diy-ing something. Tie-dye shirts, and multi-colored ribbon scrunches as kids, sip and paint outings as adults – you name it. Luckily, I inherited her crafty nature. Because let’s be honest – nothing beats a rainy-day craft or a trip to Michael’s with no projects in mind but time to kill. VIEW POST
Happy second day of spring, gals! While the calendars may say spring, this Chicago weather is more like, “nah, not today”. And unfortunately, I am completely over all of my winter clothes. This makes getting dressed in the morning more of a chore than I’d like – especially when it comes to casual Friday.
It’s official! We made it through the first full week of 2018. Which means we made it through our first Monday without a hangover of the New Year, too. (No judging if you had a Sunday Funday, though.) This week, I tried to “be good,” which means I packed a healthy lunch every day and FINALLY joined a gym.
The holidays are in full swing, friends! I have a few gift guides in the works, but today, I’m sharing one that I think will be very popular among the ladies and gentlemen. Whenever I ask someone who they need help shopping for, nine times out of 10 I hear, “my dad, brother, boyfriend, husband, whoever!” Seriously, guys are hard to buy for.
We all have that friend that hibernates as soon as the temperature dips below 40 degrees. Heck, we might be that friend. You know, the person who would much rather curl up on the couch with a good book or a marathon of Netflix binging than venture out into the cold. So, what do you buy them this holiday season? Check out my top gifts for the homebody to find out.
