My Skin Journey I want to begin this blog post by saying it is very out of my element. I was very hesitant to do it, but with some friends…
Summerfest. For us local Milwaukeeans, it means the official kickoff to Summer! I have such fond memories of Summerfest from high school, my 20's and now! So many amazing musical artists…
If you haven't figured it out yet, accessories, jewlery to be specific, is my favorite form of fashion. Now you know I like a gaudy statement earring, but I also enjoy…
Chicago, New York, Miami, and Seattle: what do all of these cities have in common? They are the pillars to the United States, and I have to visit them all. Seattle was the lastest trip, and I LOVED it!
Michael and I were lucky enough to get the Southwest Companion Pass, meaning we spent way too much money on house renovations and this was a friendly kickback from our favorite airline. The Companion Pass means Michael flies anywhere in the United States with me for an entire year. Due to craziness and life events, we have only been able to go to two places, Colorado earlier this spring and now, Seattle!!
I have been following Refinery29 for YEARS now. They have the most amazing articles that are honestly so honest and so real life, and so relatable to life! Naturally, when I got the email about 29Rooms telling me I couldn’t miss it, that bait click got me… I looked into it, and WOW, SO COOL! The best way to explain the traveling exhibit is as an Instagram playground. But don’t get me wrong, although the art exhibits were #goals, they all had deep meanings. Each ‘room’ or art installation was created by an artist who drew inspiration from their life, society or what the hell, just for fun! Take a look!
Brunch: The basic Wisconsin staple for a Summer Sunday
I decided to document one of my favorite brunch spots, Hotel Madrid. I love the restaurant for almost too many reasons; their food is delicious, staff is fabulous and the decor is Instagram worthy to say the least! They kicked off a new menu for summer and I was lucky enough to get to try it out on the first day it debuted to the public!
Enjoy all the photos below and I hope you have a chance to get over to Hotel Madrid very soon! I am running a giveaway for two tickets to their next event, the Summer Cookout. Check out my Facebook page on how to enter! Drop a comment below with your favorite brunch meal for an extra entry!
Movida, a Spanish tapas restaurant in Milwaukee.
The warmer weather has me craving outside patios and sangria. Where can I get both… Movida. I decided to capture a night out with my friendnographer, Gina. I am putting a twist on my next couple blog posts by not only featuring my outfit but showing where and what I actually do for fun! Why not feature a business I like in the process??
Memorial Day weekend isn’t just an extended holiday weekend for me and my husband Michael. May 25th is our wedding anniversary and it almost always falls on the holiday weekend. To kick off the celebration of seven years of marriage, I planned a weekend that we would both enjoy; a night at the Iron Horse Hotel and a weekend of brunching and exploring Walker’s Point. Michael has been dying to get to the Iron Horse and the hotel was kind enough to partner with us to start the weekend off great.
The Pfister Hotel is a landmark in Milwaukee and I am so proud that we have such an amazing place to represent out city. I had the honor of sharing a girls night there with three of my favorite Milwaukee bloggers. We were wined, dined and pampered, and I have probably too many photos to share, but a photo really is worth a thousand words. The beautiful hotel was built in 1893 and has continued to be the ‘it’ hotel in Milwaukee.
Let me take you along on the two day #staycation we enjoyed… We arrived in style and a naturally had to document the stunning exterior of the hotel. The intricate facade has a very vintage, but inviting feel. I mean, even the flipping parking lot has curb appeal. Now, if you have been to the hotel, you know how indescribably beautiful the lobby is… Take a look at the photos below. In addition to the ornate painted ceiling, there are beautiful pieces of art mixed throughout the entire hotel.
