love more - Small business love that gives back! My friend Ailsa recently teamed up with House of Shan to create The Happy Tee! The imperfect rainbow heart symbolizes happiness, unity, equality, and love for all… and a little reminder to find ‘your happy’ each and every day. $5 from every purchase supports Chicago Birthworks Collective and they’re also available for kids:)
dress - Loveshackfancy vibes on a budget! Love this ruffle mini dress and its $100 price tag! Transition it from Summer to Fall styled with a pair of booties and a cropped leather jacket for an Isabel Marant look.
floral treat - The prettiest cookie you’ll ever eat! My best friend served these at her wedding and I was hooked! They’re beautiful and delicious. They make the perfect surprise treat for a friend or family member, or a little pick-me-up for yourself! I may need to order the Gluten Free matcha ones for my birthday next month…
clean-up - I always get asked on Instagram how I keep our house so neat with two little boys. Its a combination of things! The living and dining room areas are the “clean zone” in our house while the family room and basement are for the kids to be kids. Our house is only 1,800 sq ft so this is a compromise that works well for us. One secret I have are these belly baskets. They look great and they make it easy for me to clean up the toys they leave around the living room.
make - I’m always on the hunt for lunch recipes. I try to eat lunch at home 4-5 days a week and with Frank home every day, it needs to be satisfying enough to get us both through our day! Chicken salad is one of my favorites because it’s easy to throw together and delicious! I’ll usually eat it over greens and then make a sandwich for Frank and the boys. THIS kitchen sink chicken salad recipe from Daphne Oz is so good.
jewels - Love simple and classic jewelry that will stand the test of time. These rose gold diamond huggies are beautiful and timeless. I had a follower reach out about a 40th birthday gift and these hoops would be perfect! Mateo is a black-owned business.
