Are you there, summer? It’s me, Sara. Seriously...summer can start any time now. I know that it JUST turned to spring, but I’m already counting down to hot days at the beach, walks by the lake, outdoor brunches, and rooftop bars. And I desperately need a tan. Pale is an understatement. With that being said, I have already been doing a little bit of summer shopping. Maybe it’s a little early to start but...oh well. Plus, I’m going on vacation . . .
So I’ve been working a lot lately, and whenever I am actually home, I tend to be in either my pajamas or some kind of comfy clothes that I can lounge around in. I have a ton of comfortable clothes stockpiled in my (ever growing) pajama drawer, and it’s always funny to see how many of my clothes in the laundry each week end up being pj’s once we finish all the folding (that particular pile is usually pretttttty high). Anyways, I wanted to . . .
Am I the only one ready for summer? I can’t lie, the winter here in Chicago has been pretty mild...but still, I’m sick of wearing my winter coat everywhere I go. I’ve always been way more of a summer person than anything, and there are so many fun things planned for summer 2017 that I am already counting down the days until sunny days, family vacation, celebratory weekends, outdoor concerts, rooftop bars, outdoor brunches, and everything else . . .
So I am going to start doing a weekly roundups of a few of my favorite things from the week each Friday. I thought it would be a fun way to end the week and definitely more exciting than a recap of what happened those days (my life is not that exciting). Here are my favorites for this week: Favorite Meal - I just had the best dinner at Frontera Grill. It’s Rick Bayless’ restaurant here in Chicago that serves creative and delicious Mexican . . .
Valentine’s day is just around the corner, and it’s the perfect time to show your best girlfriends how much you love them. You don’t have to have a significant other to celebrate, and even if you do have a boyfriend - it’s still nice to show your friends some love, too! Luckily, you don’t have to spend a to show them you care. Check out some of my favorite gift ideas for girlfriends this heart day! They are simple, sweet, and all make for the . . .
Ever since we moved into our current apartment this past July, I’ve been dying to put together a gallery wall. We have a large wall in our hallway that it would look so good on, but I sadly haven’t gotten around to it yet. I posted over on DoItYourself.com about how to design the perfect gallery wall, and now I am just collecting art, photos, and decorative pieces to put my own together. I have a few art pieces that I want to include, but I . . .
As the holidays grow nearer, it can get stressful to find gifts at the last minute if you haven’t exactly finished shopping for everyone on your list. However, no need to worry! There are so many easy gifts that you can buy at the last minute, yet still leave your loved ones wowed by your creativity and thoughtfulness. It can be tough to find good gifts at the last minute, because many stores tend to get pretty picked over the closer to Christmas . . .
Christmas is almost here and I’m getting ready to pack to go home to Connecticut for the holiday (yay!). I was thinking about what I want to wear for the holiday and it got me thinking about holiday style pieces. There are so many out there! I didn’t buy anything new, but looking at choices for this post has me SUPER tempted! Take a look at some of my favorite choices for three themed holiday looks - dinner, a party, or just bopping around on . . .
