Yes Pleases of the Week

“Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you.” ~ Oprah

In the words of Oprah, it is all about what excites you each and every week or as y’all know for me it is my Yes Pleases ! They are here and they all truly excite me and hope they inspire y’all to embrace what excites you. This week it is as usual an array of different things, which is what I love. There is never just one realm I am into. So I hope y’all enjoy.

Here are my Yes Pleases of the Week !

Yes Please #1: Coco Rose Boutique

Coco Rose Boutique has become my new favorite boutique in the last couple years. It has a great boho chic, fun vibe and never disappoints on what they have to offer. I always finding something I love and this past time was no different and to that I always say Yes Please !

Yes Please #2: Wrigleyville Sports

My all time favorite sports store is Wrigleyville Sports. It is right by Wrigley Field and online as well (which I love). It is a place I can get all my Cubs’ goodies as well as my other fave Chicago teams, which is my long time obsessions. I finally went there for the first time last year and I went over board with sports gear, so glad I did. Wrigleyville Sports is the best and will forever be a huge Yes Please !

Yes Please #3: Getting a Blow Dry

This week I got another amazing blow dry from Hair by Mal . I have always loved a pamper day that involved getting an amazing blow dry. What I have also realized this past time is how therapuetic getting a blow dry is for me. Just taking that time to be in the moment and relax is something I very much need. So a blow dry is amazing, relaxing and gets my Yes Please vote !

Yes Please #4: LaCroix Sparkling Water

I am officially hooked on LaCroix Sparkling Water and have to make sure to have it near by at all times. I love them all, but my go to is LaCroix Passionfruit. Yummy and Yes Please !

Yes Please #5: Flamingo Prints

Flamingo Print anything is my new favorite print especially on an awesome romper like the one below. It’s a fun and fantastic print that is perfect for any occasion. The best is when my mom gets flamingo print pieces and I can go and borrow them 🙂 This is a print that will always be a trend and Yes Please in my closet. Don’t be surprised if a flamingo pool and drink floatie pop up in the future 🙂

These are my passions/Yes Pleases that I continue to love and embrace. I look forward to next week’s. Thanks again for tuning in !

“Obsession is beautiful. It’s what makes art.” ~Joss Whedon

It is that time of the week again, the Yes Pleases are here. I had so much fun compiling this week’s list. Hope y’all enjoy and that it inspires your week.

Yes Please #1: Fireworks Show

Fireworks have always been one of my favorite things about the 4th of July. This 4th of July, I was blessed to see 5 shows at once and 2 on the way home. I had so much fun watching with my parents. Fireworks will always be a big yes please ! I look forward to the next 4th of July show or hey may be seeing them even sooner at a baseball game 🙂

Yes Please #2: Laura Mercier Almond Coconut Hand Creme

I was just introduced to this creme by Laura Mercier recently in a goodie bag I won (Thanks to Sydne Summer) and I cannot leave home without it. It keeps my hands continuously smooth and hydrated all while smelling like a hint of almond and coconut, which is always a plus.

Yes Please #3: T&J Designs Sunnies

T&J Designs is based in Chicago and I love everything they have. It is definitely hard to resist buying everything. Currently, I am all about the reflective sunnies I got from them. They protect, are super fun & stylish and go with everything. I will for sure be rocking them all summer long and beyond.

Yes Please #4: 47 Brand Chicago Cubs Hat

This hat from 47 Brand that I picked up from Wrigleyville Sports has become an every day staple ever since. It represents my style and love for my Chicago Cubs, which I will continue rocking in my wardrobe because of these to factors 🙂

Yes Please #5: Skin Owl Eye Creme

I came across Skin Owl at an event I recently attended. I was so excited when I got a Skin Owl product in my goodie bag. It was their eye concentrate (cream) and I love the feel and moisture it gives under my eyes. It is smooth, which is perfect for applying my makeup on top. It is a natural product and the scent is subtle, which are 2 things I look for in skincare products these days. Skin Owl is a big Yes Please !

Watching sports has been one of America’s past times for a very long time. I know I fall into this category. Now how do you say I got into watching sports? My dad has been a lover of sports since he was little. So for me it started in the womb and I was born into rocking Chicago sports gear and routing for Chicago teams, which I bleed Chicago sports through and through. AS I got older every sports season became not just seeing my teams win, but about spending qulaity time with my dad and the rest of my family.

Supporting my teams and all the sports teams is more than that, don’t get me wrong watching them win is amazing, but it is also about family, friendship and laughter. Watching sports with my dad and the rest of my family is where my heart is always ! I will never be to old for this and as I have gotten older it is fun to incorporate my love of sports into my love of fashion . Now I can love both at the same time !

IMG_7976

My love of sports goes deep and way back to the beginning. It will always be where my heart is because it’s all about family for me (the fashion is a welcomed bonus).
