DSC_0366I’m excited to showcase the latest collaboration with Michelle Starbuck Designs and some pretty cool Chicago bloggers! It all started last week when we had no school and Jill invited us over to see her home remodel and the day turned into a fun photoshoot! Laurie did our makeup and hair and let us all wear her personal Michelle Starbuck Designs collection pieces. Erin captured some very natural moments of us laughing and having a good time while onlookers in buildings above busted out binoculars to check out the scene below. And how cute is expecting Amy?!

Michelle’s designs are delicate, beautiful and very affordable. As an extra special treat, Michelle has kindly offered a 20% discount sitewide. Enter code MSD20 at checkout now through February 28th.

Happy shopping!




Me, Amy, Jill & Laurie

How fun is this handcuffs bracelet?!

Well if yesterday’s post didn’t get you into the holiday spirit, then I really hope today’s will! We got fancy for Part II of our holiday cheer weekend. After sipping on some champagne and hot chocolate at the Sky Rink, we stepped inside The Peninsula Chicago for some more bubbly and met our new friend, the Festive Ambassador, SnowPage in front of the gorgeous twenty-foot tree.

It really is the season of giving at The Peninsula. Snap of photo of a SnowPage, share it with #SnowPage, tag and follow @PeninsulaHotels and they’ll donate to Make-A-Wish, making somebody’s holiday a little bit brighter!

Happy Holidays everybody!

This past weekend I hung out with some of my favorite blogger ladies for some pre-holiday cheer before everybody goes their separate ways for the holidays. We had a really fun afternoon hanging out at the ice rink at The Peninsula Chicago, sipping champagne and hot chocolate, a great combination if you ask me. The hotel is beautifully decorated and it was the perfect afternoon to get me into the holiday spirit! A BIG thank you to the staff at The Peninsula Chicago for their great hospitality! Stay tuned tomorrow for Part II…
