Transitioning Your Makeup for Spring

Despite Chicago’s snowstorm last week, today is the first day of spring! With the new season already here, it’s time to start thinking about spring cleaning our homes and transitioning our wardrobes but what about our beauty routines? That dedicated regime is just as crucial to shift from season to season.

I’m so excited to partner with essence cosmetics for today’s post. They’re a brand that I’ve loved for a while now, ever since I discovered their translucent setting powder at Ulta. Serious game-changer, people! Anyway, click read more below to check out my tips and what products I think are absolute must-haves.

Winter Haircare

I feel like I talk about the weather, in the beginning, all of my posts, but Chicago’s is just so crazy unpredictable. How can I not, right? One day it’s 55 out and feels like spring and the next it’s freezing and windy as anything. Despite this, I’ve had winter haircare on the mind. As many of you know, I’ve been super obsessed with skincare and taking care of mine lately. Now, I’m starting to get the same way with my hair.

After I decided to go full-on blonde last year, my hair was incredibly damaged and fried from all of the color used on it. My hair is naturally quite healthy and beautiful and I want to get back to that. So, I recently got a much-needed haircut from Deron, the Creative Director of Civello Salon + Spa in Lincoln Park. He had some super helpful tips I wanted to share those and my ideas as well. Click read more below to check them out!

12 Under $100: Loafers + Mules

Towards the end of last year, we saw a huge upsurge in the number of women wearing loafers and mules. Whether worn casually with jeans a button down or more professionally at work, loafers and mules started to pop up everywhere. They’re even great for travel, especially airport security (read more about that here).

Now that we’re in 2017, I don’t think this trend shows any signs of slowing down. The Gucci slides are arguably the most coveted pair of the year. Considering their astronomical price point ($595), I thought it might be helpful to share ten pairs of loafers and mules all under $100. Click read more below to check them out!
