life lately

Hey there! Life has been pretty great lately and unfortunately I haven't updated y'all in awhile. Since moving to Chicago it seems like every weekend has been jammed pack. We're either hosting guests, traveling, or exploring the city with friends. No complaints here! 

Last weekend my best friend and I hosted a baby shower for one of our good friends. I must say, I was pretty impressed with our ability to throw a pinterest inspired shower although we were both living out-of-state. Big thanks to our moms! If you're looking for easy crowd pleasing recipes, the pretzel buttons and caprese skewers were a hit. 

The weekend before that my four best friends came to visit! We all live in different cities and I was so thankful that they ventured to Chicago. We explored the city, had a delicious brunch, and shopped WAY too much. While browsing Nordstrom we stumbled upon a NARS pop-up shpo that was offering complimentary makeup appointments. The bottom right pic is the "after" pic. It was apparently inspired by Adele. I love the cat eye! 

Lastly, I went to my first Windy City Bloggers event last night and had a great time! I met Jessica and Megan and can't wait to catch up with them soon at future events!

As always, you can follow along on Instagram for more comfortably-chic updates!
