Chicago Mini Haul: LUSH x Topshop

The first immediate question that pops into my mind when it comes to Chicago is "Where am I going to shop first?". The duration of last weekend's trip was spent doing so. Me and five other ladies were sent over to Schaumburg, a suburb on the west side of Chicago to train for H&M. Unfortunately none of us had much time to spend in the city, because of our schedules, but the mall we were working in had everything I needed. Coffee in every corner, LUSH, and a huge Nordstrom. Needless to say, I took a few things home with me.

a. Sunny Side Bar / b. Bubblegum Lip Scrub / c. Pink Bath Bomb

Topshop Jamie Ankle Jeans

I had no idea that Nordstrom had a Topshop department, so it gave me the biggest grin ever when I saw it at the entrance. I have been wanting to pick up a pair of jeans from them because they are incredibly comfortable and fitting. I ended up buying a pair of ankle jeans, for reasons you may not expect. They fit me perfectly as a regular jean, so no trip to the tailor is needed for these babies.

Own Your Stripes

// More Inspo

There is nothing more classic and chic than a striped shirt. It's incredibly versatile and lovely lady icons wore them before us, like miss Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly. Whenever I go shopping, that pattern always catches my eye and I'm always drawn to buying more than is necessary. Horizontal, vertical, I'll take them either way. Dressed up, buttoned down, or plainly worn by itself.. I'm clearly under a spell.

Some really sweet news... I'll be flying into Chicago in less than a week. It is a business trip, but I will have some spare time on my hands. I'm happy to be visiting again! I would definitely love a suggestion or two of places to eat.

Welcome good, welcome bad

A little reminder for your Monday. Starting the week off on a nice note will only make the rest of the week better. I have a lot of things to focus on this week, such as starting a new job and settling into a new office with Hello Holiday. Another something to focus on is a sense of empathy and mindfulness. Your bad mood is only temporary and remember cute puppies.
