CHICAGO

indexHey Guys!

I am so sorry I have been MIA… however my life has taken over … SUCKY! I do hope to get back into the spirit of writing as I was loving it.

But just a little update I am currently in Chicago and LOVING it… I mean who doesn’t love Chicago???

So as I am in Chicago I thought I would let you into my TOP 5 things to do while your in the windy city.

 

1. BILLY GOAT TAVERN

The famous Billy Goat Tarvern is DEFINITELY a place you have to go. Established in 1934 this place has seen it all. So take it from me YOU GOTTA EAT HERE… oh and order a double double.

2. CLOUD GATE

Cloud Gate or as I (and many many others) like to call it ‘The Bean’. Is just a really cool sculpture by Anish Kapoor’s located in Millennium park. Great place to take some ‘selfies’.

3. NAVY PIER

It’s hot, it’s summer, you want a beer or a margarita? Head to Navy Pier located right on the water (obviously) this place has some serious people watching and guess what! You can walk around with a drink… epic!

4. JOHN HANCOCK OBSERVATORY

You can’t go to the city and not see the city from the sky. The 360 views at the John Hancock building are unreal… and if you dare try the TILT. Which is basically a glass window which you stand in and it TILT’s to scare the crap out of you. AWESOME.

5. MAGNIFICENT MILE

Or MAG MILE as ‘us’ Chicagoan’s say, is the PERFECT place to get your shop on… stuffed with high street names such as TopShop and High ends names such as Burberry… this mile of shopping has something for everyone!

 

Hopefully you are heading to Chicago at some point and if not… set a date! You will love it.

Breakfast Ideas

Breakfast Ideas

Toast… most people’s go to breakfast item, however it can get really boring…. REALLY fast!

I stumbled across these ’21 Breakfast Toast’ Ideas (picture above) on buzzfeed… and thought it’s such a good idea… I had to share. I have decided to try all of the recipes… one each morning.

The one I am most excited about trying is the, Sliced Avocado + Crumbled Feta + Pomegranates + Olive Oil, this is destined to satisfy my sweet tooth.

Wash these down with a nice cold glass of Himalayan Pink Salt water and I think that’s a great , HEALTHY start to the day.

All idea’s can be found on buzzfeed…. image holds link.

Try it out… it looks DELICIOUS!
