Chicago Food Guide

Chicago Food Guide
Hello Loves!

Happy Wednesday! Chicago is one of my favorite places to visit. I love how it’s a near by New York City where I can devour in delicious food, take gorgeous Instagrammable photos, and immerse into a city-like life. The day was filled with hectic activities, but I wanted to share a few of my favorite Chicago food spots that still have my mouth watering till this day.

The Hampton Social

Our first stop was having lunch at the Hampton Social! Literally, the most Instagrammable lunch spot. The decor is gorgeous, the service is excellent, and the pizza is soo good! Also don’t forget to try their Rose wine, it is the perfect drink with the cheesy pizza. I can not recommend this place enough!

RYU BBQ

For all my Korean BBQ lovers out there, RYU BBQ is the place for you! The restaurant is about 15-20 minutes outside of the city, but so worth the drive. The food has a light sauce to it, which makes it so deliciously “healthier” in a sense. The portions are more than enough. My 3 sisters, boyfriend, and I couldn’t finish 2 orders, which says a lot about the portions. They also have an all you can eat Korean BBQ special! The decor is simply rustic, and modern. A great stop before heading back home!

Style Trend | Puffy Sleeves

Style Trend | Puffy Sleeves
Hello Loves!

Happy Monday! I’m starting off the work week with my favorite work outfit at the moment. It consists of my favorite colors AND a style trend I’ve been obsessed with lately!

Puffy sleeves is a style trend that isn’t going anywhere. I love the strong, feminine structure the sleeves project around the shoulder areas. It’s the perfect way to live out your princess, fashion dreams in a more modern way. Also how cute is the tan and pink color combo?! I mean I’m obsessed! By now, I’m sure that it’s pretty obvious that I love a neutral, feminine look for everything I wear. The top is currently on sale so make sure to grab one before it’s all sold out!

Thanks for reading loves! Have a wonderful start of the week!

Game Night with Xbox | Connect and De-stress

Game Night with Xbox | Connect and De-stress
Hello Loves!

These past few months have been extremely stressful! There are various ways I de-stress and I thought this would be the perfect time to share a fun fact about myself: I LOVE to play video games! As someone who is constantly working on projects, playing video games is a way for me to disconnect from reality. I am so excited to be partnering with InfluenceHer Collective and Xbox to share how I connect and de-stress during game night! Please note that Xbox sent me this console to check out and all opinions are my own. #AD

The Perfect Way to De-Stress with Xbox

It probably came as a shocker that I am a gamer. It is something I do not share often. I love how a simple gaming console can bring the best life experiences whether that is by yourself or with friends and family. Right now, my favorite Xbox game to play is Minecraft. I love the ability to build whatever you want, wherever you want. In a way, I have the creative freedom to let my mind imagine.

The new Xbox One S All-Digital Edition is an all-digital console with no disc drive, available for only $249.99. Fun fact: the disc drive was removed so consumers can save $50 off the price. Pretty fabulous, right? Also, no one wants to hoard a pile of discs when everything can be stored online. The console is light weight and only requires two chords to connect. I love the simplicity of the overall setup and how it can be stored without any hassle.

If you want a fun way to de-stress, I highly recommend getting yourself the new Xbox One S All-Digital console or just start gaming overall. I feel that the gaming industry receives a bad reputation, such as, it is for people who are not cool or people who are too lazy to do anything with their lives. However, I believe the exact opposite. Gaming is the perfect way to find more about yourself while having fun. I challenge you to turn off reality for a few hours and allow yourself to free fall into a game.

Metallic in the Workplace

Metallic in the Workplace
Hello Loves!

A subtle metallic style piece is one of my favorite ways to slightly spruce up an everyday work outfit. It gives that shimmer without being too much in your face. I thrifted this light pink metallic top from thredUP. The original price was $24.00 and I bought it for $11.99. I love the pink with the cream dress pants because it’s a classy color combo that won’t have HR chasing you down the hall. Also, the sleeves are skin tight, which kind of feels like spanx for the arms!

My number one rule for wearing metallics is to not let it overpower the work outfit. Even though you may want to have it be the star of the show, sometimes it can come off as tacky. It should be a fun add-on, not a screaming piece that takes the attention away from the entire outfit.

Thank you for stopping by! Have a wonderful day 🙂
