I’m still shaking from the fact that I got to meet James Cordon!!! He is by far my favourite comedian and probably my favourite celebrity. He is absolutely hilarious and he did not let me down with his hosting and auctioning skills at the Discovery Ball this past weekend. The event Field Museum in Chicago and they raised $6 million in support of the American Cancer Society which was unbelievable. We got to hear from a cancer survivors who’s story was truly incredible. It was a wonderful event for a great cause and I would love to take some time away from the fashion on my blog for this post and for you to all donate to the American Cancer Society here.

This past weekend was my first weekend back in Chicago for the year. It was great catching up with everyone and meeting up with some old friends that just moved to Chicago. I love hearing from friends where they go out in cities since online reviews aren’t always accurate and people have different tastes in what they like. I’m now going to included places in go in the cities in my outfits so if you think you have the same taste as me you can get an idea of where to go from someone similar to you. If you have any questions feel free to comment!

I started my weekend in the West Loop which is the new trendy area. I met some of my  college friends at Lone Wolf. It was a nice little bar where you can actually talk to people but still have fun. We then headed over to Federales. It has a great patio that’s fun while the weather is still nice out, but the inside is just as greIMG_5732at.

The next night I had dinner at MAD Social. The food was incredible! All the dishes were very interesting, my favorite being the chicken and churro waffles. I spent most of my weekend in the West Loop but ended Saturday night a little closer to me at Stout. I love this bar because it’s sort of like a hybrid of a bar and a club and the music is always great!

Summer Season?

Well, I thought I was about to skip my first winter in Chicago but it seems like that all changed this past weekend. It was the most bipolar weather I have ever witnessed. There truly were all four seasons in one day; there was a snowstorm then sun with warm weather and back to snowing within the minutes. A little snow won’t stop me from believing summer is almost here though! I thought I would share with you some of my favorite bikinis for all of you out there starting to plan your summer vacations. I have a serious bikini problem and can’t wait for this weather to warm up so I can start buying some more!
