Fig & Olive Restaurant

Located on East Oak Street in the heart of Chicago's high-end shopping district, Fig & Olive is New York's finest import. As soon as you walk in, you feel as though you've been transported to New York - from the DJ to the lively ambience and prompt service. Needless to say, I was pleasantly surprised by my first (highly-anticipated) experience at the Fig & Olive.

Sydney Evan Jewelry

I've recently developed a slight obsession with jewelry brand Sydney Evan. But that's hardly surprising given the variety and quality of their aptly-named collections like "wild things", "celestial", "sticks and stones", and "the edge". They also offer custom diamond script necklaces like that worn by Kate Moss on the December cover of British Vogue.

Fur Bobble Accessories

The biggest street wear trend of this winter season has been fur bobble accessories. Although it took a while for this trend to grow on me, I'm now firmly onboard! Beyond their aesthetic appeal, these accessories are beyond comfortable and practical. So with a few chilly winter months left to go, don't be afraid to indulge in a scarf, hat, or perhaps even both.

Super Bowl Sunday

Being in America, there was no escaping the Super Bowl last night. Somehow I made it through the entire game including the much-anticipated half time show. Admittedly, the game itself was very interesting but let's face it - you're not here to hear me talk about that!

Sober - Childish Gambino

2 weeks ago Childish Gambino a.k.a Donald Glover, released a new music video to his track 'Sober' from his latest mixtape STN MTN/ Kauai. The release of the video came in the form a mysterious website (now a youtube link to the video) which counted down the minutes to the release of the video. If Gambino is your thing, this song is nothing new. The song itself features electro keyboard bogey tunes with a mix of the bass in towards the end of the song. Like his previous album 'because of the internet', Gambino's video 'Sober' actually follows a similar inner monologue which is revealed at the end of the video. Fans of his 'Community' character Troy will also find joy in some of the dance moves.

Over-The-Knee Boots

After investing in a pair of suede knee-high Stuart Weitzman boots last year, I've begun to appreciate just how Weitzman's boots add a touch of elegance and edge to any outfit. However, over-the-knee boots have also quickly become a closet staple and Stuart Weitzman's Lowland are the perfect everyday pair.

Coachella 2015

This week the official line-up for the annual festival in California was announced. Another year, another Coachella festival missed, and the line up this year looks, as always, unbelievable. But no worries, we've got our eyes on 2016!

All About That Plaid

I'm not usually one for patterns but I'm a sucker for plaid and it seems like this trend has finally caught on. What's more, the variety of color combinations and textures available in this print makes it particularly appealing. For a laid-back daytime look, pair a plaid sweater or shirt with ripped jeans. When it comes to the evening, consider pairing a plaid miniskirt with a crop top or a plaid blouse with miniskirt and over the knee boots.

Marco Polo: The Next Netflix Hit?

To say I was excited about Netflix's newest series, Marco Polo, would be an understatement. As a Game of Thrones fanatic, I was thrilled at the thought of another series filled with violence, political intrigue, and twisted romance.
