2017 Reader's Choice Survey.
Hi loves! Happy Friday!
Keepin' it short and sweet with my annual survey today. I'd love to hear your feedback. This blog has changed quite a bit in the last two years and I'd like to keep you around a little bit longer. (wink, wink). Please, share your thoughts and you can remain totally anonymous if you like, too. I promise...it's only seven questions. Easy peasey!
Cheers and thanks for your participation in making this a fun and inspirational place to visit! xo
I just love the magic of the final two months of the year. The uplifted moods, the music, the twinkle and the excuse to majorly blow off any diet I may have been on. You only live once, right?
Well, I have the great fortune with this blogging hobby to get first glimpses at some of the most unique venues, experiences and events and I kinda feel like it’s my job to share the good cheer so you can enjoy them with your favorite gal pals or family, too. Whatdyasay?
Besides my family’s health and safety, the one thing I am most grateful for in 2018 is friendship. I’ve touched on the subject quite a few times, most recently here, but they have a tremendous impact on my daily outlook and my energy. My girlfriends give me a support system that is irreplaceable.
In the blogging community, FOMO is a real thing. This topic is especially poignant given that it's NYFW. And for what it's worth, I've attended several times and I am totally okay with not being there this year. It's not all glitz and glam...it's a lot of schlepping, sweating, missed cabs, foot pain and hunger. Would I go again? For sure. Am I okay with missing a few? Most definitely! But, I digress...
Anastasia Lupu is indeed the triple threat but the most striking feature about her is how incredibly kind and down-to-earth she is. Once you get over her supermodel looks, you realize just how whip smart she is and the likability factor goes wayyyy up.
She's a momma, a badass babe, a beauty and a business woman. Her floral company speaks to me and it's incredibly unique and custom which are two of my favorite things. The tagline: Boxed Flowers For The Well-Heeled. Where my stiletto-wearin' babes at? This one's for you!
I love interviews. Interviews with celebrities, interviews with bloggers and influencers...you name it! And while I am not a celebrity, I thought I would take the copycat approach and try it out for myself. It's all flattery, people!
Melanie is the Queen of Lemonade. Her eponymous, mouth-puckering lemonade can be found amongst the shelves of specialty grocers as well as Jewel and soon, Mariano's. From a consumer standpoint, our family cannot.get.enough of this delicious beverage. Comprised of aronia berries and low on sugar, it makes for the perfect beverage for your babes and for the adults...try it with vodka or bubbles!
If there was such a thing as being a "Jane of all trades" than I think Jacqueline has cornered the market. She's got style, <obvi> beauty, brains and an impeccable sense for creating environments that evoke a mood, an emotion and a sense of calm. FT interior stylist by day and weekend lifestyle blogger by night. Now that's what I call multitasking...in the best way possible! Take a read to learn more about this Windy City interiors maven...
I LOVE to entertain. Truly. I love to brainstorm intimate soirees with friends and family that have a zillion thoughtful touches and details. The last few years have been so busy launching a new business that I chose to be extra grateful this year and bring back my Annual #Babesgiving Brunch.
