The Captain comes to Chicago

Recently I was able to hang out with Captain Morgan compliments of #chicagogrammers.  It was wonderful fall weather at Joy District and the event was held on their beautiful rooftop.  There was good music, great drinks and an amazing atmosphere.  The purpose of the event was to sample the new Captain Morgan fall flavor Apple Smash.  It was a good time with some really, really good drinks.


My favorite drink of the night was the Captain Morgan Apple Smash and Ginger ale.  The combination of the apple and ginger made for a tasty cocktail and a great choice for a fall adult beverage.  Below are some of the other drinks the mixologist prepared for the event.


One of my favorite things about the drinks were that they were served in little plastic green apples, a great way to introduce the concept while providing an visually appealing way to enjoy your cocktail.

What would a rooftop party be without food, music, a photo booth and a visit by the Captain himself?

Be Blessed, Be Fabulous!

Car shopping can be an exhausting experience.  I remember when purchasing my first car becoming physically sick after visiting a dealership where the salesperson attempted to take advantage of me by selling me the cheapest car at the highest price.  I unrealistically vowed at that time to never buy another car.  However with the advances in technology and the ability to do and buy just about anything online, car buying has become easier than ever.  I am thankful to sites such as for making the care buying experience so much better than my first car buying experience.


More than just a website that will help you buy, sell or trade a car,, offers other advantages as well.  The information on the site includes tips for first time car buyers as well as how to check and properly install child safety seats.  The last week of September child safety seat awareness was highlighted. included an excellent video on their site for parents and auntie like myself that may have to transport children.

No matter what you are planning to do, trade or sell your current car, purchase a new car or research car safety, has you covered.  So before your next car buying experience, check out  I learned that doing a lot of research ahead of time can save you a lot of time, frustration and money.  I subsequently have purchased two vehicles after my first horrible car buying experience and I can say with the help of the internet and websites such as, my experiences have been pretty good.
