Trip Report: California

In an attempt to escape this brutal Chicago winter. The fiancé and I headed to southern California to visit my cousin and her husband. It also happened to be the fiancé's birthday - all the more reason for a trip! We had a fabulous visit, ate delicious food and relaxed.
 cheers to California sunshine! (it rained the rest of the trip) this was the most delish watermelon margarita.

Cooking in heels

Last night I felt like cooking up a storm. I hunted thru pages and pages on pinterest and found a couple of recipes that looked interesting, tasty and seemed pretty easy. I'm not the biggest fan of cooking chicken at home. It gets so boring and bland. I'm a girl who likes some flavor! I found the perfect recipe, you MUST try it!
 
 This herb and citrus oven roasted chicken is out of this world tasty. Full of flavor and pretty simple to make. I could have eaten this stuff for days!
 
It's no lie I love me some risotto. Mainly because is packed with cheese, and I LOVE cheese. Most of my risotto recipes remind me of summer, so I wanted to find something a little hearty (its -10 in Chicago) and bold enough that would work with my citrus chicken. This risotto recipe is made with red wine, I know! Crazy different. It's OH SO GOOD. I think I filled my plate 3 times. You will not regret giving this a try. Yum.

Wall Art

New wall art up in the apt. I've had the drawing for over a year and just never got my act together to buy a frame. I saw the print on etsy, and had to have it.

Fab. Forever Finds

I've been hunting for a perfect black pump. A pair that has to work with tights or jeans. These are basic enough to go with just about anything, but still have a little bit of flair.

Travels

Sorry for the lack of posts! The holidays were super busy. We got away for New Years and headed to Mexico! We spent a fabulous 6 days at the Excellence Riviera Cancun. Toasting to 2014 in sunshine was the best idea we ever had!

Details

 
 It's the holiday season! There's nothing better than getting together with family and friends. I love any excuse to get all dressed up, pull out the glitter, sequins, metallic and sparkles. These fringe earrings are my favorite way to dress up any outfit. They have the most amazing details (metal and sparkle!) and are the perfect statement piece. I rocked them for a holiday party this past weekend.

Scarf Season

 Scarf season is among us. I'm reverting to my usual winter uniform of head to toe black. I try to throw some color in my closet but I always end up in all black. I really think my 5 years in NYC caused this. One of my favorite ways to add some color into my look are scarves! They always look chic and are super comfortable. I'm obessed with this scarf from Shawlsmith London - it reminds me of a sunset, which we all know, I love a good sunset.

Forever Find

I love a good Forever 21 find. These little booties are my new go to shoe for everyday wear. They are super comfortable with a little heel. The faux leather wrap adds a little something extra and they go with just about everything.

Sweater Season

 Sweater season has begun. It's no lie that the fall-winter aren't exactly my favorite seasons. I try and make the best of it with cozy sweaters and lots of faux fur and leather. I spent this past weekend in Michigan with the boyfriend and some friends. We had a fabulous time and got to enjoy the lovely #puremichigan. If you follow my instagram you saw we spent the rainy Saturday enjoying the Michigan wine country.
Sunday we hit up the beach and enjoyed the warm sun.
