When out of town guests come to visit me in Chicago, I always like to give them a gift basket of thoughtful gifts and treats. It’s such a nice way to welcome them to the city and make them feel special! Usually, I rush around the city trying to assemble a basket full of items that would appeal to my guests and relate to Chicago in some way. But those days are now over! I recently discovered the locally owned and operated “Send Them Chicago” gift basket company and had a chance to check out their “Windy City Welcome” offering. It is so cute, and my out of town guests were thrilled with the thoughtful Chicago-themed gift!
I’m done adulting. All I want to do is run away and be a mermaid! And OMG…my dreams came true! A new mermaid class has come to Chicago!! Aquamermaid Chicago offers introductory classes for adults (over 14) and kids (7-13). The intro class fits would-be mermaids with a fin, lets you choose your color of tail (pink or blue), and teaches you the basics of swimming without legs! It was one of the most fun Sunday afternoons I’ve had in a while. How often do you get to live out a fantasy?!
When I was planning for my trip to New York City for Full Figured Fashion Week and the Golden Confidence Pool Party, I absolutely could not decide which swimsuit I wanted to bring. So what’s a girl to do when she can’t decide? She takes all 3 and has a few outfit changes during the event! This Always For Me Sundance Plus Size Bikini was one of my favorites, and I had to give it its due at the pool party!
