Happy Friday, friends! I’m headed to Ohio for Memorial Day Weekend (lol, Midwest summers in a nutshell) and wanted to share links + sales before I head out the door! Kind of a short intro, but if you’ve seen Chicago traffic on a Friday, you understand. Have the best weekend!
Happy weekend, friends! What a week. It went so fast but ughh I need to take like 5 seconds to relax this weekend. Always something, right?
I’m SUPER excited because Idan and I just booked a trip to Mexico City & Cabo this July. Please send me your recos! I can’t wait. Plus, we bought our plane tickets and hotel using points (Chase Sapphire Reserve for the win!!), so we can spend a little more cash on experiences while we’re there. YAY.
One last thing–have you signed up for my email list yet? You’ll get posts like this straight to your inbox. Easy peasy!
Life. is. insane. I’m doing so much outside of work these days, and I’m trying to avoid burnout, but it’s so hard sometimes! I’m looking forward to this weekend because it’s going to be another gorgeous one in Chicago, and Idan will be visiting! We decided to make almost no plans for the weekend, so we can just play it by ear and see what patio we end up on. I’m thinking Big Star, but we’ll see. Sometimes it’s nice to just go with the flow, and not plan every single minute, you know? Although as a very type-A person (he is, too), it takes some discipline to just relax.
Speaking of relaxing, we’re planning a summer vacation to Cuba and Punta Cana! I would love recommendations for both, so send them my way!
Hola from NYC! It definitely feels like every time I write one of these posts, I’m not in Chicago. Either this means I need to stop traveling so much, or it means that I need to write more Link Love posts.
I always have such a blast in New York, and this weekend was no different. I made a little guide to everything we did this time around, and while it’s nowhere close to as lengthy as a true NYC guide would be, I hope it’s at least a little helpful!
Hello from sunny Arizona! I’m home for the weekend visiting the boyfriend and my family. I just finished a really good book, Big Little Lies, and I know I’m so behind the curve on this but omg so good. And now I’m onto Talking As Fast As I Can by Lauren Graham (Gilmore Girls anymore??)! Is anyone else reading something I should put on my list?
I’m also currently nursing a cold. It feels like everyone I know has the same virus… UGH. I usually don’t get sick for more than 48 hours at a time, and not more than once a year, but I’m going on a week at this point and nothing I do helps! Anyone have any tips? Seriously, I’ll try anything.
On to this week’s links!
I want to buy this Ikea kitchen cart just so I can upgrade it. Love the marble!
Are our future children destined to be completely useless? This article is scary but important.
Hello from Ann Arbor, MI! I’m currently sitting in my favorite Zingerman’s Bakery, chowing down on a bagel with goat cream cheese. No complaints here!
Currently I’m planning a blog post that I’m shooting on Monday (it’s going to be SO cute, so stay tuned). Since I’m whipping it together so quickly, I am in hyper speed mode trying to get everything together.
I just finished my second round of Whole30, and rounded it up along with my favorite recipes here.
Is anyone watching This Is Us? I’ve cried in every single episode so far this year, and one episode had me in tears 4 separate time. UGH, so good. I’m REALLY not looking forward to this week’s episode, though, because I think we all know what’s coming and I’m not ready.
This week’s link are kind of heavy on the DIY, but I have just found so many that I have to share them! Hope you you’re having a great weekend!
WOW it has been a while since I’ve posted one of these! The holidays and other various blog projects have just kind of gotten in the way of these Link Love posts.
It’s been a crazy start to 2017 – aside from everything going on in the world at the moment, I turned 26, I started Whole30 (and am halfway through), and I made a commitment to go to yoga 20 times in the month of January. Needless to say, I’ve been a busy gal (in the best way)! Aaaanyways, here are this week’s links!
I can’t believe Christmas is this weekend. Didn’t 2016 just begin? I’m wrapping up this year and starting to plan ahead for 2017–I have some big goals for the year! I’ll be posting about that later this week. For now, enjoy this week’s links!
I love this time of year. Even though Chicago has decided it’s winter (wahh), the Holidays bring me so much happiness. Last night I went to see It’s a Wonderful Life at the Chicago Symphony, and it was one of the greatest shows I’ve ever seen. I didn’t NOT cry like a baby…
What are you doing for the holidays? Anything special going on from now until New Years? I’d love to hear about your plans and your holiday traditions!
Today I’m shooting a few things with Taryn, including a fun little project for Paper Source, and a post I’m doing about my absolute favorite camera for traveling. Stay tuned for that!
Here are this week’s links:
So what if you’re not into the holidays? So what if you are? Man Repeller forgives you either way.
