Today I’m sharing my Top 4 favorite places that I ate and drank at in Cleveland, Ohio. I didn’t know what to expect in Cleveland but it really was a charming city. One of the things I love most about Chicago is that you’re on Lake Michigan and it’s nice that Cleveland is right on Lake Erie. Cleveland has the feel of a big city without feeling as crowded and is very walkable. Behold, the World’s Largest Outdoor Chandelier.  Intersection of Euclid Ave and E 14th Street. Coffee – Pour Cleveland 530 Euclid Ave, Cleveland, OH Pictured: cappuccino Great atmosphere Good wifi Downside: I collect mugs and love getting a new one from each city I visit. Sadly, Pour was out of the cups they sell.…

I was driving home the other night around 7 when I realized it was starting to get dark out, which means the season is almost over. I didn’t get to do all of the things I wanted to this summer (so many patios, so little time), but I’m hoping to squeeze in a few more things this fall before it gets too chilly. It was a pretty great summer, so I wanted to share my highlights and favorites. Tell me yours down below, I’d love to hear! 1) Wearing less (if any) makeup: This summer I really couldn’t be bothered with makeup. In the picture above, I’m barely wearing any. Just my It!

In my mind, the year can be broken up into two season: fall and everything else. I love everything about fall – the excitement of back to school (even though I’m not in school I still get a new planner), the smell of cinnamon candles, warm comfort foods and of course, festive drinks. Today I whipped up a little fall-inspired apple cocktail to get you in the spirit because as far as I’m concerned, bathing suits are out and blanket scarves are in. Servings: 1 Ingredients: 1.5 oz Martell Blue Swift, but you can use a bourbon if you like 3 oz apple cider/juice – This is where your personal preference comes into play. If you want something a little more tarte, go with a honey…

Dabbling with designer makeup brands has become quite an eye-opening experience. I think there are 3 classes of makeup: drugstore, high end and designer. By designer I mean, $85 for a Christian Dior lipstick, because that’s a category all its own. When I first started trying and investigating Marc Jacobs Beauty, I was placing it in the high-end category, because his products seemed comparable in price point. However, if you really do some digging, you might want to bump it up to the designer category. Let’s chat the Marc Jacobs Eye-Conic Eyeshadow Palette in Glambition. This palette comes with 7 gorgeous shades and includes 3 mattes, 3 shimmers and 1 glitter. Price: Much like when I looked at the price/product amount of the Marc Jacobs…
