California Dreamin in Fabrik Style

With the onslaught of this heat wave that Chicago’s experiencing, I find myself missing California even more. Yes, I know, it’s even hotter there. But after my trip there in February, I understand why so many people write songs about the state and why so many people are always moving there! This look is inspired by the style spotting I did while in Cali. Pair shorts from my favorite local haunt, Fabrik Wicker Park [who just keep ...

Local Fashion, Local Blogger | Fabrik Wicker Park + Chicago Reader

Volunteer Park

Birthday Travels When I travel, I will often look up a few places to visit prior to leaving the comfort of my own home. Not many, not enough to make a full travel itinerary, but enough that, once I get to that place, I can explore beyond that space and really get into the meat of traveling. Volunteer Park was one of the places that I knew I needed to visit before we even entered the state of Washington. And visiting the space on my birthday ...

Top Spring and Summer Beauty Products

When it comes to Spring and Summer, the number and range of beauty products I use increases dramatically. During the winter, I basically use the thickest lotion I can find, I barely touch my hair, and I kind of pretend makeup doesn’t exist. Then spring comes, temperatures rise, and I come out of hibernation feeling like some sort of butterfly who hasn’t quite found her color yet. It’s a chance to try new products, explore ...

Dog Moms on Mother’s Day

Two dog related posts in one week?! I just might be a crazy dog lady or something. But there’s a big holiday coming up, one I have a difficult time with, and one that I have only recently decided doesn’t stink. Mother’s Day is upon us. I have an incredibly mixed relationship with Mother’s day. As a mid-May baby, I frequently shared my birthday with this holiday. So things like my 16th birthday? Yeah, that was ...
