WEEKEND INSPIRATION: What to wear & do this weekend

First things first, sorry I've been has been happening, but I promise some good stuff is going on behind the scenes, so stay tuned.

I'm so excited that Chicago is finally experiencing some warm weather. This strange thing happens when it gets warm in Chicago.....everybody loses their minds (me included).

All of a sudden, I think I'm a bohemian babe and want to spend exponential amounts of time outdoors, at the beach and eating anywhere al fresco. 

I've also become an outdoor runner (kinda). If you count putting on some serious "running" gear and running for 10 mins and walking for 30 mins (hey, baby steps). 

So as I get my body in shape for the summer (better late than never), here is some weekend inspiration.

April 25, 2014


Have you ever made such a big deal out of something only to come out of it on the other end and wonder "What in the world was I so worried for?" Well, I finally conquered my fears and got a much needed tooth pulled....and for the most part, it went very well. There were some bumps in the road but it turned out all right and I'm on a happier, healthier, pain free path. 

I'm noticing this pattern with a lot of things in my life, the dreaded conversations that I know I need to have but just don't want to have, that big project that I'm just too scared to accomplish for fear of failure (or success) and the much needed self love that I just don't seem to have any time for but desperately need. It's time I grow up and really, I mean really conquer my fears. Things will be scary and sometimes difficult but sometimes you just have to face your fears head on and just do them anyway, trust me, you will be so happy you did. 

Someone who inspires me to keep conquering my fears and live my dreams, just made the cover of TIME Magazine.
