Back to School

Well it’s officially back to school and no matter how old I get I will always be a fan of school supplies. New pens, notebooks, calendars… you name it, I can’t resist. Anyone who knows me well knows that you can always find an assortment of markers, pens and multiple calendars on my desk at any given time.

My favorite supplies come from Paper Source. We don’t have a store here in New Orleans but whenever I am in a city with one it’s a must stop on my list. Perfectly merchandised office supplies and trinkets are my little slice of happy!

One of Each

Zara has long been my go-to shoe source! They are always first to come out with the seasons latest styles {at affordable prices} and typically after a few wears, I can live in them. Zara recently launched their fall shoe collection and lets just say I may go broke, I want them all!

Eataly: The Best of Italy in Chicago

A few months back I was able to visit Chicago not once, but twice for work; it was my first time to the city and I still can’t believe it took me so long to visit! What an amazing place! On my first stay one of my Uber drivers recommended that I check out Eataly. I went in thinking it was an Italian restaurant and once I got there my mind was blown! For those of you who haven’t heard of Eataly it is the most amazing culinary experience. The location is set up similar to a Whole Foods, but way bigger. With three restaurants, many tasting areas {think cheese, meats, pizzas}, a market and dessert and coffee area; with food selections straight from Italy! I was SO impressed I made it a priority to head back on my second trip as well. The food was absolutely amazing and being able to wonder the aisles; looking at any thing and everything you could image from Italy, with a glass of wine in hand made the experience one I won’t forget.

Markette Nola

My local West Elm and Juley {of Upperlyne} hosted the greatest Etsy Pop-Up shop a few weeks back. I had the best time browsing local vendors and even picked up a few things. I scooped up a small original piece from Markette and absolutely love her work. The perfect addition to any gallery wall and the prints {and cards} make great gifts!
