Foodie Adventures: Chicago

Posted in lifestyle, Travel
on June 8, 2017

In my last post, I wrote all about my amazing trip to Chicago. While I did highlight all aspects of my trip, I left out my favorite part… the food!

We tried a new restaurant every night, and every night I tried something I had never eaten before. I would continuously say I refuse to eat something, give it a try, and then enjoy it. So in the end I learned I should stop being so stubborn when it comes to trying certain foods because I will probably end up loving it.

If it sounds/looks like we ate a lot of food, it’s because we shared it all tapas style… but also, we really ate a lot of food. We tried new wines at every meal, so it’s safe to say this was the best foodie adventure I’ve had so far!

RPM ItalianThe first night there, we went to RPM Italian, which is the restaurant of Giuliana and Bill Rancic! The food here was amazing – definitely a great way to start a week in Chicago! We started with shredded Brussels sprouts and an incredible cheese platter. For the main course, we had Carbonara and Maine Lobster Ravioli. We got both, because we couldn’t decide and wanted to try it all!

Subscription Boxes You Need to Try

on May 3, 2017

I’m always a little hesitant to try out new subscription boxes. You never know what you’re going to get. One thing I do like though, is receiving packages. There’s just something wonderful about being at work all day and coming home to a package full of new things. I decided to take some chances and try out some new subscription box services.

Here are the boxes I’ve been loving that you’re going to love too! Plus, there are a couple freebies when you use some of these links.winc Read More

The Instagram Debate

instagram

I’ve been a blogger for nearly two years now and I’ve been on social media for about 10. It’s crazy to think that I’ve been using social media for so long. I got an Instagram in college and I’ve  been obsessed ever since. For most of my time on Instagram, my profile was private but once I started blogging I made it public. I debated for a while if I should create an entirely new Instagram specifically for my blog, but in the end I decided on keeping my personal Instagram and adding in my blog content. Read More

Feeling Zen with Szen Zone

Szen ZoneOne goal that I’ve set for myself is to read more books. It’s so common for people my age to stop reading books once they’re done with school, so I’m trying not to fall victim to that. One of my most recent reads was Szen Zone by Gary Szenderski. Szen Zone is a collection of stories which promote happiness and positive change – something I am always looking to incorporate into my life.  Read More

They haven’t all been bad, in fact, most of them have been great – but that’s another story. I do want to share with you my latest ‘Currently Loving’ list as a little peek at what I’ve been up to!

How I Became a Morning Person

on January 14, 2017

Becoming a morning person isn’t an easy feat when you’re so used to sleeping in and rolling out of bed. Recently I’ve had to start rising before the sun and while it’s pretty great to watch the sunrise everyday, I’m used to sleeping in a bit more, so it has definitely been an adjustment. Read More

2017 resolutions

Happy New Year! 2016 flew by so fast I’m still in shock that it’s already January 2017. I make resolutions every year and much like everyone else, I sometimes struggle to keep up with them. Throughout the year I will occasionally make new goals lists, and of course I have my ongoing 101 in 1001 list. For 2017 I’ve made some great resolutions that I can continue to check and keep up with throughout the year. Read More

Last week I kicked off the holiday season with the lovely ladies at Leaf Boutique in Brookline! Not only was the night full of holiday fashion, but it was also a celebration of their 20th anniversary. Every time I go to Leaf Boutique I fall in love with everything and this night was no different; both outfits that I wore in the show, plus some more items, are currently hanging in my closet… I’m a shopping addict, what can I say?
