Well, I mentioned that Neal and I filmed a fun little video with TIAA a few weeks back, and I’m excited to finally show it to you today! Join us as we take you through three popular Chicago neighborhoods.
(I’ve totally always wanted to be on HGTV. Can you tell? Also how adorable is Neal?)
If you’re thinking about buying a house anywhere in Chicago, TIAA’s website is an amazing resource (especially if you have NO clue where to start in the whole mortgage/finance department!)
Thursday!? Whoooaaaaa where did you come from!? Has this week been flying by for you too? Flying by so much in fact, the Shopbop sale totally snuck up on me!
Did you hear that they’re having a major sale this week? Shopbop sales are my favorite times to stock up on some great essentials–they have so many cute things on sale right now–including lot’s of pretty dresses (I really think I need this one for SOME wedding occasion this year, don’t you think?!) summery tops, and cute sandals! Even if Shopbop isn’t in your price range most of the time, there are always some affordable finds to be had on sale!
All sale styles are an extra 25% off with the code 25EXTRA–but only through tomorrow! You definitely want to act fast before the best stuff gets snapped up!
By the way, we have two more free Blogging For Keeps WordPress webinars today, if you haven’t signed up yet, you can do so here! Come hang out with us–we’d love to see you!
I get a lot of questions on lipstick–naturally, being a red lipstick aficionado. I know I mention my favorites here and there, but I still end up getting constant emails about the one question–how do you get that damn red lipstick to stay in place?!
Well. Good news. I’ll tell you.
How do I know? I’ve tried everything.
Using a stain, applying with a lip brush, dusting with powder, anything you’ve heard of, I’ve done it. (And the truth is, these tips do work!)
…Just not as well as the lip product trifecta I discovered last year.
Know what’s funny? I’ve always loved flowers, especially blooms in soft, neutral tones. (Peonies and Hydrangeas! I die!) Whites, pinks, creams–gimme all of ’em!
But when I got engaged, my stomach churned at the idea of shelling out thousands of dollars for flowers that are going to get tossed after just one day! I mean, that’s not only financially ridiculous, but also just plain sad.
Then I had lunch with my friend Meg (you’ve seen me wear her bracelets–she’s the designer behind BusyWrist! You should totally stalk her wedding here) and she told me that in fact–she barely had any flowers at her wedding! Aside from the bridal party bouquets–it was all greenery.
