Holiday Magic in Chicago with my Kids

This past weekend, my kids and my friend Janet and Marley, had the best full day in the Loop doing holiday activities.  I LOVE the holidays and seeing my kids enjoy the magic through their eyes is wonderful! Our full itinerary started at 10am and we got home at 7:00pm.  Take a journey through our day and I definitely recommend doing this with a friend, your kids or a significant other.

Great memories and times had with great friends!

#GNO with Neiman Marcus and Rolls Royce

This holiday season kicks off with a bang with Neiman Marcus and Rolls Royce! If you are a lover of Neimans, one of the favorite items to receive is the holiday catalog.  This year the ultimate fantasy gift is a Rolls Royce (check it out here).  I got the lucky chance to roll around the city with my two girlfriends and attend the Neiman Marcus Champagne and Shoe Event last Thursday and we had a blast.

5 Things I've learned this year (and helping me get through the holidays) . . .

The Best Gift with MVMT

It's the holiday season and the hardest part of gift giving is finding the perfect gift for the right price. I've been wearing and gifting these MVMT watches and they are absolutely perfect this holiday season.  Luxe details, modern AND reasonably priced.

These gift boxes are selling out! Love the sunglass and watch combination; both are items you use daily. (Shop women's gift boxes   |   Shop men's gift boxes)

Ultimate Gift Guide: You, Home and Gifts

I recently did a poll on my instagram on what my followers wanted to see and they wanted a gift guide! Instead of a big collage I decided to share my top 5 favorite things by category and these are perfect for you, family, girlfriend and the home.  With all the deals going on, I'm sure most of these will be on sale. I focused on great things I would want rather than all the black friday/cyber monday deals going on.  Most are style steals and the home decor stuff I have (or similar).

I'm a big birthday person.  I love a good birthday celebration whether it is for me or family or friend. A good time celebrating this special day, is the perfect remedy for getting another year older :).

This year was not my year. Not to go into too many details, but it was a rough one.  I've learned a few things this year and thought I would share the 5 things I have learned.

AND I get asked where to dine/go out in Chicago quite a bit, so I am also sharing 5 ways to celebrate your birthday!
