Valentine’s Day Picks {for Her}

Valentine Gifts for HerCan you believe Valentine’s is around the corner? Where on earth did January go?

Any who back to Valentine’s Day, remember this is a day of LOVE (well each day should be filled with love) and not just loving your better half but about loving every one around you. If you are not in an intimate relationship, don’t feel bad, focus on the other people you are blessed to have in your life. You don’t have to be in a relationship with someone to show them that you care.

Here are some of the things I’m currently lusting after:

1-  ‘Valentina’ Eau de Parfum 2.7 oz $110

2- Close To You $7.50

3- Aspres Bodysuit $128

4- Signature Chocolate Truffles Gift Box $50

5- Cable Pearl Ring with Diamonds $595

Burger Fest

I love food more specifically I love burgers all types of burgers: beef, chicken, turkey, vegan, I really don’t discriminate when it comes to burgers, I love them all. That is why I am beyond excited to go to the Roscoe Village Burger Fest! The Fest is taking place today and tomorrow 11am -10pm, if you are in Chicago I suggest you take your happy little butt over there. Some of my favorite joints will be there, for a complete listing go here.

Eat responsibly,


Happy Father’s Day!

Father's Day

To my first love. My best friend. My biggest supporter. Thank you for loving me. Thank you for reminding me to count my blessings and to not take life too seriously. Thank you for always being there for me, for always knowing what to say to make my day better. I am beyond blessed for having you as my dad. Daddy, I love you more than life.

Your little girl,



Cubs vs Mets

I love baseball.

Wrigley Field Chicago Cubs vs Mets May 18th 2013

One of my favorite places in Chicago is Wrigley Field. There’s no other ballpark like Wrigley, yes my opinion is biased I’m a Cubs fan and the only other ball park I have been to is the Sox’s and let’s just say I was not impressed.

This year the husband and I were able to attend the Cubs vs Mets game at the Skybox on Sheffield, we got the tickets for $65 (a steal!) through the DePaul Alumni Association (I love my alma mater), this tickets usually go for $145! The $65 included food (all you can eat) and drinks (all you can drink). The views on this particular rooftop are amazing!

This was taken from the third floor bleachers before the game started, we were definitely pleased with the view :)

A group of Met fans took over a small section of the bleachers, look at them all wearing their bright orange shirts, too bad Met’s lost to the Cubs 8-2 :D

Now let’s talk about the food, the views were spectacular but the food was delicious, I’m salivating just thinking about it. We pretty much had everything on the menu (okay I lied their menu is pretty big click here to see it). I had a grilled cheese burger with Goose Island’s Famour pub chips, one Bratwurst topped with Sauerkraut, beer onions, beer mustard and a hot dog picture below, this was the only thing I remembered to take a picture of before I devoured it. Don’t worry we walked a total of 6 miles to-and-fro the ballpark to be able to eat all the wonderful delicious food we ate.

Trust me when I say it was as delicious as it looks!

I am definitely glad we were able to attend the DePaul Chicago Cubs Rooftop Outing, last year they had it on the day of our wedding and well we just couldn’t miss our wedding for the rooftops, although the hubster and I were ready to skip the ceremony and head over to the game, crazy sports fans!
