The Good Kind of Blue


Anyone else feeling the effects of all this sunshine? Summer always has me feeling like I'm on Cloud 9, and this year is no exception. In fact, maybe this year more than most!

This Little Piggy


Is this just a good week for treats, or what? I've been eyeing these adorable animal-themed cones on Instagram for a while and finally decided to go get myself a pig (of course). Not only is it cute, but it was delicious too!

New Makeup Obsession // VT x BTS


If you've been following me on Instagram, you've noticed that I've been taking full advantage of the BTS pop-ups that have been happening around their recent two-day concert weekend in Chicago (more on that later, because oh my goodness it was amazing). This past weekend I went out to the suburbs to pick up more from the VT x BTS line and it never disappoints! Click through for more.

Just Add Popsicles


If horchata was perfect for yesterday, a dreamsicle pop is perfect for today. I hopped on over to Pretty Cool Ice Cream in Logan Square to pick up this treat and it did not disappoint! I'm a sucker for orange dreamsicle. What's your flavor?

Horchata, Sunshine, Hair Flip


We're kicking off summer with cute dresses and tasty drinks. On Saturday I made it down to the Mole de Mayo festival and enjoyed the summer temperatures with lots of good food. I hope you are all enjoying the long weekend!

Pastel Pink


Oooooh, I'm so ready for pastels. I did pastel nails today and busted out this new pastel ruffle dress. I. AM. READY. I was excited to head to Chicago's new Aster Hall for dinner and drinks tonight, and this was the perfect comfortable dress to wear on a weekday night out.

Tulum Day 2


I've been really dragging my feet on sharing vacation photos, huh? Maybe it's the post-vacation blues, considering that Chicago still hasn't warmed up. I keep looking at these photos and remembering how nice it was to walk around in shorts and be in the ocean and lay out on the hammocks. Day 2 of our trip was filled with beautiful beaches, historic locations, and some great outfits. Click through to see it all!

Welcome to Tulum


Last weekend I had the pleasure of spending time in Tulum, Mexico, with a couple of friends and it was one of the most refreshing trips I've ever taken! It's been two years (!!) since I took a big trip, and that was to Guadalajara. I loved being back in Mexico and can't wait to share all of it's beauty with y'all over the next couple of blog posts.

Zero Degrees


We've been so spoiled this winter with mild temperatures and little snow. Well, now it's here! Opal woke me up bright and early for her walk and when I checked my phone — bam, zero degrees. Hope you're all staying warm this weekend!

My Fuzzy Friend

I can't believe it's been just over a year since I adopted Opal! She has changed and adapted so much since I brought her home — her personality has totally bloomed! This winter has been great with her. We spend a lot of time playing and cuddling. I wouldn't trade our little friendship for anything! ♥

Refreshed

I hope you all had a wonderful new year! I have been so insanely busy with my microblading business that I have barely had time to be on the blog and Instagram, but rest assured that I have some fun things coming up in the coming months! I am currently on the search for a new photographer to bring new images and life back into Mini Penny. Over the next couple weeks I will be sharing some looks — so be on the lookout and follow along!
