Yes Pleases of the Week

“Live your life as a series of obsessions.”

One of my favorite times of the week is here, my Yes Pleases. This week was another fun one to put together. Here we go to this week’s Yes Pleases !

Yes Please #1: Football Season

Football Season is back and already we are into week three. I am so excited for football to be back. I love the sport, the energy it brings, the food and of course supporting my Chicago Bears. Here’s to hoping for an awesome football season for DA Bears, always a Yes Please !

Yes Please #2: Slip On Mules

So I have been a fan of mules for awhile now and so excited to see the evolution of them. There are heels, faux fur, florals, metallics, nudes, neutrals and so many other amazing details and options. As mules continue to transform so do my outifits. I continue to say a big Yes Please to mules !

Yes Please #3: Eric & Jessie is Back on E!

Yay, Eric&Jessie is back on E! after being away for 3 years. It premiered a couple of weeks ago and episode 3 just aired. This show is happy, goofy, full of laughs and serious relationship goals. The show is a must watch and a big Yes Please !

Yes Please #4: Woven Pear Socks

Woven Pear has quickly become a part of my sock drawer ever since I picked up my first two pairs at a local boutique. They are cute, comfy and full of fabulous details (one being the cute woven pear) and love all the different choices. I recently was sent these amazing Ice Cream socks and Bison socks to feature, which is officially one of my favorite packages to get. They are another accessory that gives not only comfort, but that fun peekaboo pop to an ensemble. For me, Woven Pear is always a Yes Please !

Yes Please #5: Hask Hair Products

My hair is thick and there is a lot of it. I am always looking for great products that are paraben & sulfate free. I have fallen in love with Hask Hair ever since I first tried their shampoo, conditioner and dry shampoo (my fave). I have been wanting to try all their products for awhile so I was overjoyed when Hask Hair themselves sent me all their amazing products. I was overwhelmed with joy and excitement to try them all. Hask Hair is hair happiness for me and always a Yes Please !

First off, thank you to those that gave their lives for us and all that continue to serve for our freedoms. In honor of these brave soldiers, here are some amazing ways we can honor and celebrate them !

1.Backyard BBQ with all your favorite outdoor games like cornhole from Dick’s Sporting Goods and horseshoe from Amazon along with the best pool floaties like from Sunnylife

2.Pizza from Settebello, Beer (my fave Mother Earth) and Cards Against Humanity

3. Trip to San Diego (includes Baseball (Hot Dogs & Cold Beverages) & Beach Time)

4.A day of fun that includes Pinterest Crafts and popcorn, which is great for all the families

 

Another idea I have seen around too that I one day want to try for Memorial Day is a Memorial Day Adult Scavenger Hunt around town with friends, how fun and what a great way to celebrate our soldiers !

Also don’t forget to bust out your flags and poppies (be sure to check out why bring out the poppies) along with all your red,white and blue !

P.S. Remember to show love for our soldiers especially on the holidays dedicated to them.

 

Redefining Relaxation Through a Staycation at Farmer’s Daughter Hotel

A tradition I have started in the last year was one of having a staycation as often as I can. It was something that started with wanting to be near work one week when I had a lot going on. A light bulb went off, “why don’t I have a staycation every so often?” The tradition of staycations were born right then and there for me.

So the time came again this past February for me to have another staycation and exploring adventure in my amazing city. Where this next staycation was going to be was not hard, Farmer’s Daughter Hotel and the surrounding area that I had been wanting to stay in for awhile. It’s a hotel I passed a bunch of times and an area I have been to before and have just fallen in love with it all. An added bonus too is one of my favorite outdoor shopping spots, The Grove, is a quick walk from the hotel along with Coffee Commissary within 5 minutes or so, which I was so excited to finally try).

The reservation was made and my staycation was here, yay ! Luckily the bad weather subsided long enough for me to have an amazing staycation. I checked in to Farmer’s Daughter Hotel, which has one of the cutest lobbies and my room wasn’t ready, but it was perfect because I had the perfect chance to walk on over to The Grove for a shopping adventure before dinner.

Where to start now at The Grove ? Topshop caught my eye immediately I was overwhelmed with excitement on all the great pieces, but the ones I ended up with was this amazing leather floral pleated skirt and fun, fuzzy socks for Valentine’s Day that I now where all the time. Now that I have added some amazing new pieces to my wardrobe, it is time for a refreshing beverage and a tasty snack. Whenever I am at the Grove my go to is Nordstrom Cafe. I ordered an iced tea (my obsession) with a smoked salmon platter (always my go to) and I was able to enjoy it all outside in the cute court yard surrounding the cafe.

My room was ready and it was a nice surprise because they upgraded me to the main building to makeup for me waiting, which highlighted their amazing customer service even more. Walking into the room, I got a warm, cozy feeling and I knew I was in a space of pure relaxation, which was needed with the amazing king bed and breakfast nook bench all with fantastic accents everywhere. I officially need a king bed in my life because I was spoiled by this one, absolutely loved.

Being able to plop down on the amazing bed with my magazaine and book before dinner at Tart (the restaturant connected directly to the hotel). Dinner was here my outfit was fun and fabulous and my book & notebook were in hand. With the essentials in tow, I walked over and got a gorgeous seat on their deck near the fireplace, simply fantastic (I highly recommend making a reservation like I did to guarantee a gorgeous spot, which is anywhere at this amazing place). I ordered jasmine green tea, brussel sprouts with a fried egg and fried pickles as an appetizer (a suggestion from Bread and Butter PR) and for the main course, one of the best cheeseburger (mmm, delicious).

Let me tell you this meal was stupendous ! I can’t forget the delicious, decadent dessert, which they delivered to my room after I got back up (they seriously spoiled me). I ordered italian sugar donuts with a delicious filling, one of the bests. Eating the dessert at my nook in my room was the perfect end to a perfect day and night.

It was morning and after being well rested and re-energized, I lounged and wrote in my room before heading out. I ended the trip with a stop at Coffee Commissary for breakfast, which is one of my new favorites.

To say I will be back is an understatement, I will be back in ten fold to each spot especially because I have to be sure to ride around on the Farmer’s Daughter Hotel adorable bikes 🙂 .
