Chique-ago - 1Welcome to the “Chique-ago”¬†mural! If you read a lot of Chicago-based blogs, you probably recognize this mural. Since it’s right by my apartment, I had to get in some photos here as well. It is in a parking lot and the day I happened to go with Samantha, cars were parked there. Can you believe cars park in parking lots?! Anyway, we got in some good shots and we had a fun afternoon hanging out in Chicago. On a side note, how is it Wednesday already?! Happy hump day ūüôā

ross-event-giveaway ross-event-giveawayross-event-giveaway ross-event-giveaway ross-event-giveawayLast week I attended the grand opening of Ross Dress For Less on Randolph with my blogger buddies. The evening began at The Wit with amazing views of the city and delicious food. Then we headed over to Ross on Randolph and had first looks at the new location.

It was such a fun evening and I had a lot of fun hunting for the perfect finds. I picked up this distressed Puma sweatshirt and these fun Guess leopard/sparkly slip on sneakers each for $24.99. Can you believe those deals?! Every week they get new shipments, so I can’t to see what I find next time I go!

To celebrate their new location Ross and I have teamed up for a giveaway (enter below). One lucky winner will win a $25 gift card. Good luck and happy shopping!

WELCOME to the new and improved HAMR! I couldn’t¬†wait for it to¬†go live and it’s finally here.¬†I had been working with Angie and Nana for several months and I’m so so so happy with the new design and platform.¬†These ladies are seriously the best. They took my vision of what I wanted¬†HAMR to look like and made it into a reality. I can’t thank them enough for all their hard work, creativity¬†and countless hours of email correspondence and answering all of my questions.

Honestly, I can’t even begin to thank everybody who reads HAMR and supports me. It really means a lot and I’m truly humbled by the deep support. HAMR¬†started off as an outlook of¬†self-expression, but has really transitioned to something I am very proud of and will continue to grow. I hope you will¬†join me into the next chapter of HAMR, so sit back and enjoy the ride with me!
