Engagement: Sarah & John

Oh, hello dreamy summer light! It’s so very good to see you again! Summer is officially here (I guess we skipped Springtime in Chicago, but at least Winter is behind us for the moment.) and engagement session season is in full effect! I am so very excited to make the most of it with all of 2016 (and 2017) couples! We had a picture perfect breezy Chicago evening for these two last week!

Wedding: Kirsty & Garrett – The Metropolitan at the 9

This wedding! Ohhhhhhh, this wedding! I don’t think I have ever been THIS excited leading up to a wedding (…besides maybe my own!) and, now that it’s over, I’m pretty sure I’ve slunk into a slight depression! Because, first of all, I adore these two! Kirsty, my rockstar wedding planner bride (of her own wedding, no less!), fellow wine lover, and snapchat obsessive sister (Helloooo, she even had the cutest custom geo-filter ever for their wedding day!), I couldn’t possibly be more excited for this gal to get married. I remember her gushing about this guy named Garrett when I first met her…and it’s pretty crazy to think that guy named Garrett is now her husband! Whoa, hello Mrs. Basch! I love it!

These two are just all kinds of happiness and goodness together and being a part of their wedding weekend was the biggest honor for me! Seeing their friends and families come together so warmly and joyously, with open hearts and arms, becoming one big family, was the most beautiful thing to witness! (Not to mention, moms high five-ing over future grandchildren as they prayed over their Ketubah is pretty much the cutest thing ever.) I think it goes without saying that the love included in their wedding day was downright incredible! And when Kirsty surprised Garrett with their favorite singer (IN PERSON!) to sing their first dance song, I may or may not have bawled my eyes out (thank god for auto focus!) at how sweet of a gesture it was and how happy it made the both of them! I’m half convinced that room held all the love and joy in the world that night! What a truly awe-inspiring thing! Cue the happy tears and let the photos roll!!!

What do you do when Chicago weather goes absolutely crazy on your wedding day….you make magic anyway! It is still 100% one of the most love filled and beautiful days in your lives and a little monsoon like wind and rain can’t put a damper on that! Not even a little bit!

Things I Love: May 2016

Here it is! A fresh batch of Things I Love for the month of May! Spring is here and I’m all about being dewy skin, apps that make my life easier, and having some laughs…among other things! (And I’ve already got a list going for June! But, be sure to send me recommendations of things YOU are loving on lately! Music, shows, books, apps, beauty products, you name it!)

IMG_8438

Le Cord Rose Gold iPhone Cord - Do I really need to do any explaining for this one? It’s a chic rose gold iPhone cord, get into it!

Drapey Trench - Love this take on the classic trench in an easy drapey fabric for Spring!

Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer - My new favorite concealer!!! I would pick a shade that is a tad lighter than your skin tone if you plan to use it for your under eye or as a highlighting base.

Jen Gotch - Founder and Creative Director of the Ban.do brand! And freaking hilarious on Snapchat! K often hears me snickering and snorting over her wacky snaps when I’m winding down, catching up on Snapchat in bed, at the end of the night. Seriously, go follow her right now. @jengotch

Planogr.am (aka Planoly) - Instagram lovers, small business owners, and social media savants alike, THIS is the app you need to design your feed and schedule your posts! Try the free trial and I’m pretty sure you’ll be hooked!

YSL ‘Touche Éclat’ Blur Primer - Heaven in a bottle. My new favorite primer! Reduces the appearance of pores and gives a dewy base for summer skin almost like you are airbrushed to perfection!

Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear - Finally read this gem that has been going around! Creative minded friends, it’s worth the read!

BECCA Under Eye Brightening Corrector - If I’m being honest, I’ve never really tried a under eye corrector before,  but this one is bomb! I’m not at all surprised it always seems to be sold out in Sephora. This little powerhouse does it all. Corrects, brightens, and even conceals…I do swipe on some concealer over it, but this baby does a pretty good job all on it’s own!

 

 What are YOU loving on this month?! New music? A new book? Beauty products? A new bag? A fantastic person to follow on Snapchat?! Throw them at me, I LOVE hearing your recommendations!
