In Chicago, summer is such a fabulous time of year – and with all of the weddings happening in the city, I so enjoy suggesting the architectural cruises!

OPI spotlight on glitter-OBSESSING over these nail polishes. Metallic colors are always a really great pop of color for a conservative outfit or additional fun for a more whimsical look – PERFECT for a bachelorette weekend!

PINT Chicago I LOVE that this place takes the hassle out of making healthy choices! It is so important when I am in the middle of wedding season to continue to try to make healthy choices, which is so difficult when I am working 12-14 hours every day and then producing weddings on the weekends – these great individuals actually deliver fresh cold pressed beverages to my door – it is fabulous!

Also – From the packaging to the powder itself, this product is beautiful. The shimmer on the top isn’t just sprayed on like some highlighters – it’s throughout the entire compact. MAC’s Mineralize Skinfinish is an all-in-one highlighter/bronzer/finishing powder. Global Glow, is stunning. It’s not too dark of a bronzer, and looks universally flattering on everyone, hence the name – and helps me look sun kissed even when I am not!

I happen to be really in love with my white blazer from Tahari right now – love it for transitioning from work to cocktails with friends with crisp, easy style. This summer pairing it with a fabulous pair of platforms is all the rage which is thrilling to me because I am short! LOL
