For months I’d known that we had a wedding coming up in the rural mountains of Montana. I’d seen the pictures of the mountains on the bride-to-be’s Instagram. One of which she simply captioned “The picture doesn’t do it justice.” Yeah yeah, the mountains are gorgeous, take a pic etc etc. But she’s SO right!
Recently I took a trip back down to Chicago to visit the pop up experience The Happy Place. It’s basically a blogger’s paradise. Instagramland if you will. A warehouse installation with several different rooms full of fun and colorful photo ops! Obviously, I had to check it out before it’s last day, September 3rd, 2018.

Recently I was invited by Pamela Kieck, Badger Liquor and Veuve Cliquot on a boat ride along the Milwaukee river. Anything that involves champs and chatting with my blogger babes is already appealing. But also while floating through the city on a Veuve cruise? YASSS PLEASE! So it was time for some pre-summer style to

Photography: Amanda Vick After a loooooong Wisconsin winter, we finally thawed out up here and Spring blooms began to pop up! For months I stared longingly out the back window wondering what my garden looks like and waiting to get my hands back in the dirt. I’d completely forgotten all that I planted and
Brian Mattinson Photography Fun at The Pfister Hotel A couple months back, during an unseasonably warm Wisconsin weekend, some blogger babes and I booked ourselves a little stay-cation at Milwaukee’s famous Pfister Hotel. In the heart of downtown Milwaukee, this architectural stunner definitely stands out with very regal feels. Once inside, the amazing classical interiors
Photography by Amanda Vick Creative Embroidered Denim at the Milwaukee Domes A couple weeks ago cabin fever was really starting to set in for this Midwest stay-at-home mama. During one of our chats, my photographer Amanda, a Wisconsin native, suggested we take a trip to the Mitchell Park conservatory domes. YES! Great idea. Upon entering,
Photography by Amanda Vick Date Night Dress Sometimes a girl just needs to put on something more than a pair of jeans and boots for date night. Sometimes we want to feel more fancy… Put on some heels, show some leg, order a martini! Maybe going to your local/regular spot? Maybe you’re trying a new
