Ring In the New Year
I’m a big fan of sporting a unique piece of jewelry, whether it’s something you find in a vintage shop or in this case a completely one of a kind geode stone. Get this little baby bling compliments of mother nature and trust me, Big Mama knows whats good. I hear that mining for gold is back in…anyone down for a day trip? **It’s your special day. Snag the “Nadine Ring”...
The Hunters Guide: Chicago
Isle of Man, located on Lincoln Avenue, is one of those rare experiences where the owner executed his concept perfectly. Not only do you want to buy everything in this store- but you find yourself wanting to stick around for awhile and hang out with the staff (and maybe flip through the playboy centerfold coffee table book). This is a place where a man shops. I’m referring to the...
The Bar Method
Lately I have been trying to live a more healthy lifestyle and figured the best way to start this would be to find a good workout. Being too picky I couldn’t decide on a gym and by sheer luck I found a studio called Barre Bee Fit. Located in River North of Chicago, this place focuses on routines most commonly found in a ballet studio. Its one of the most intense workouts I have ever had...
Nothing says Happy Holidays like a little...
If your family is anything like my family, you break out the booze during the holidays. And if you are anything like me, you give away quite a few bottles of wine as gifts. And if you are really anything like me, you don’t know too much about wine and so you end up buying the best looking bottle. Design counts for something right?? Well, if you’re looking for an alternative to...
Birdy Nam Nam- the Parachute Ending
Its rare that I find myself going back to youtube to re-watch a video more than once. I probably go and watch this every day. Just sayin.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n_ICcz6kXP0
I didn’t think it was possible but.. here it is. Best interpretation of a military inspired heel. They don’t look it, but trust me, they are actually pretty comfortable (warning: advice coming from someone who wears heels daily)..

Unique Gift Ideas
My friend Mark introduced me to this website about a year ago when I was stressing out about getting my boyfriend something “really awesome, but not too expensive, but just all around cool..so you know…he loves it”. Voila, Mark to the rescue. If you haven’t heard of it yet.. www.Svvply.com It’s the ease of a blog combined with the power of shopping, check it out...
Best Red Dress: Part 1
I always used red more as an accent color since I stick to lots of black and grey in my everyday wardrobe. But then I saw this and died. I know this because I woke up three hours laters with my credit card in hand and the title menu of Blue Planet playing on repeat. (Anyone?…Anyone?) Clearly I tried to buy it and died before I could make the transaction. Three weeks later I was still...
In honor of my very first post, and my slight obsession with the new Tron movie coming out, I give you this beauty. These err on the side of fashion, not function- at a whopping $1650 (electrical cord not included). I’ll be wearing these to my next holiday party- be sure to look for me in the corner by the nearest outlet. Anyone need their phone charged??
