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.

Perfect Summer Shoe

098acb16b631ad4fcee25fb207726e7e

I have been looking for a new summer shoe, and have had my eyes on the Chanel espadrilles for a long time.

They are the perfect summer shoe… wear them with jeans and t-shirt, bikini or summer dress.

Now I just need to save my pennies as these puppies have a price tag.

4 of July

I’m back!! After a lovely long weekend, some time to catch up with family and friends, and enjoy Canada Day… I am back and ready to get BLOGGING!

After a night of fireworks to celebrate Canada Day… my mind has wandered to the fact that America will be lighting up their skies with fireworks this Friday for Fourth of July. So I have decided to do a blog post on ways my American friends can incorporate their flag into their lives this Friday.

1.

Clothing… probably the most obvious way to incorporate your flag. Their are many different clothing items promoting the American flag available for sale on the high street. However you don’t have to deck yourself from head to toe, you could just use one item… or create an outfit of red, white and blue…. e.g red top, blue shorts, white shoes.

2.

Many of you will be getting your kit off this Friday… I am sure!… whether it is at the beach, back garden, pool whatever… everyone seems to get a little naked on July 4th. So show your patriotic by plastering your flag on your private parts! There are lots of cute bikini’s available at places like American Apparel, Target, Nastygal.

Having people over? Or just hungry? Food is the way… not only is it delicious but you can have some fun by adding the American flag into your meals.

4.

Why not bring some of that pride indoors, adding decorative pieces to your interior is not only being patriotic but also making your space look great. There are so many DIY ideas online to add some flag into your house.

5.

Now all that’s left to decorate is your car. You don’t have to paint the whole thing in an American flag… unless you want to, and if in that case don’t hold me responsible. You can add a simple car flag… these are super cheap and easy to get a hold of… especially with the world cup going on.

I hope you all have a fantastic July 4th… and an amazing long weekend! Be safe and have FUN.
