I had to take a picture of my cute lil' breakfast yesterday. Solo breakfasts are quite nice especially on a crisp, Fall day. Yesterday I got to enjoy the quiet time in NYC right before everyone starts their commute and I have to say, it was very peaceful while the rest of the day was not!

This weekend brought about a little change. Traditionally, I have always been a blonde but I was needing a little "pop"! Although not there completely, I am aiming for the strawberry blonde shown above via Nicole Kidman and Blake Lively. Step 2 scheduled for the end of this week. Stay tuned for pics!
Today was my first Pilates class. I am addicted, it's over. I am happy to sacrifice some shopping for this workout. AMAZING and what's even more...I can walk to my class. Interested? Check out this local hotspot: http://www.springpilateschicago.com/
Had a fantastic Sunday with my girls Kristin and Quinn. This snapshot is from our lunch at Rainforest Cafe. Quinn was mesmerized as I am of how ridiculously adorable she is. As much as I love the mall; I ♥ my girls even more! Oh and chita-ritas, too!

Along with all my Fall themed entries, I am pretty pscyhed that plaid is so huge this year. There is something rugged and outdoorsy about these shirts and they now come in every color of the rainbow! For the inner Paul Bunyan in you...

Halloween is my favorite holiday and I am so excited that retailers are pushing decorations and candy. It's officially Fall. Check out this lantern found at Pier 1. So adorable and a fresh take on the jack-o-lantern in case your real one rots a little too early like mine always does!
Just returned from a Hawkeye girl's weekend in good ol' Iowa City. So much has changed but alot remains the same. Here is a pic with me and my ladies. I love you all so much...thanks for the great memories!

The girls are back! Having been in NYC this week the Upper West Side was a mob scene and Bergdorf's was the capital of the SATC mob world. I don't care what anyone says...I'm an SATC lifer, are you? Vote: http://prettycity.com/kim_kardashian.cfm

I ♥ Annie Leibovitz. She is such an imaginative photographer. A true perfectionist, this is her take on Alice and Wonderland. Classic.

Even despite a recession, I am the nerd that spends $28 on a candle because I like the way it looks and smells. Well, if you are like me - indulge at Anthropologie. This is one of the best burning candles out there.

I love hats and Fall is the perfect time to experiment. I have this hat in olive and although bashful at first, I wear it will attitude now. It looks great with jeans or leggings and of course, boots. Great for a bad hair day or just running errands on a Saturday. Might as well have fun with fashion...
I have been trying to expand my chocolate horizons. Vosges chocolate bars are pretty decadent and this my friends, is my favorite flavor. Behold the Barcelona bar. Equal parts milk chocolate with sea salt = yum! I have tried the chili pepper bar and plan to venture out more but I guess I am a traditionalist at heart. Enjoy my fellow chocolate lovers. (PS - they have their own pop-up shop in Ohare...tee hee)
