Review // Kaja


I recieved a beautiful care package from Kaja last week and I am so excited to share the goodies they sent over! Everything about this line is fun and fresh and colorful. I created three looks using a variety of blush, highlight, eyeshadow, and lip stains. Starting tomorrow, you'll be able to order all of these through Sephora.com, or get them in stores on September 28! These Kaja products are a courtesy gift from the brand. This is not a paid post, and all opinions are my own.

Gaylord and the 45th Parallel


I thought this was one of the coolest things on the trip. Outside of Gaylord, Michigan, there is this big sign on the side of the road noting the 45th Parallel. We also passed by one somewhere in Wisconsin on our way back home (but the sign wasn't as interesting as this one). Have you visited any 45th Parallel signs elsewhere in the country?

Warren Dunes


Last week, my mom and I embarked on an road trip to Northern Michigan — and took Opal, of course! We stopped at a lot of cute places along the way and I'll be sharing a lot of looks over the next week or two. First up is Warren Dunes and this summery lemon romper.

Accessing Chicago with Car2Go

One of my favorite things about Chicago is that there's so much to see and do. It's a big city and if you want to get around, you have a few options: public transit, ride shares, and driving. Personally, I love to drive. Most of my friends are surprised to hear this considering that I don't own a car. I've tried many of the rental services available, but always wished for one thing — one-way options. When I discovered car2go, I was ecstatic. Finally, a free floating carsharing service that fits all of my needs: affordable, available, and so much fun. Read on to see why I love to drive and how I use my car2go vehicle!

You've Got Nail 90


I've been feeling a lot of the checkerboard patterns that I've been seeing in clothing lately — I decided to give it a try on my nails! Instead of the traditional black and white, I went for some pinks. Maybe I'm finally getting over my association of checks with ska. Nails made using Floss Gloss Perf and Floss Gloss Maliboob Job.

Museum Days


Nothing like a nice day looking at dinosaur fossils and mummies! I still love visiting all of Chicago's great museums — and the Field Museum is my all-time favorite. What's yours?

Kick Back


It's the weekend! Hope y'all find time to kick back and relax. I'm totally obsessed with these yellow sneaks from Reebok. I've been pairing them with everything lately!

You've Got Mail 89 // July Scratch Box


I skipped over the June Scratch wraps (they just weren't my style, but you can pick them up here if you want them for yourself!), but the July wraps were a delight! Nothing says summer like popsicles and ice cream cones. I was excited to make some pastel sweet manicures with these.

29Rooms


I've been lusting after going to a 29Rooms event for years! When they announced that they were coming to Chicago, I hopped on the chance to get tickets right away. The experience was fun and we got a lot of cute photos in the process! I scored this vintage velvet dress at a yard sale and couldn'tt wait to wear it. I've linked some similar dresses plus my favorite velvet picks for fall below. I'm ready for those cooler temps, how about you? Click through for lots of colorful images.
