How to look cool in hot weather 

One thing I appreciate about working downtown Milwaukee is being able to explore! I have lived in the Milwaukee area all my life so it’s all I know, but I love it! I moved to the Third Ward (art district) my junior year of high school. To say I am a city girl is an understatement; I love the hustle and bustle and how something is always going on! Honestly for Milwaukee being a small, but big city, I often miss events because I never heard of them. But what is fun is you can always count on finding something new in the city, whether it’s a new restaurant or a freshly painted mural.

For example, the day I took these photos my co-worker/friend stormed into the office and said, “we are going to find Beyonce’s yacht on our lunch break.” How do I even say no to that?? Turns out, a local couple chartered the same yacht that Bey and Jay-Z were on a few months ago! We found the massive boat and then wondered around the lakefront. If you saw my Instagram story a few weeks ago I talked about it and got tons of messages asking if she was really in Milwaukee. Just call me Perez Hilton because I started a big rumor!

Since then, I can’t stop checking out her posts and pictures to see what she’s been up to and obviously living vicariously through her fun adventures!
