Sound Off Sunday

Well Winter has finally arrived.  I do not know whether I am happy or sad.  I guess the sooner it starts the sooner it will be over, but we had been enjoying some great weather in the Chicago area.  So the 60 degree days are gone and now it is time to pull out the boots, coat, hats and gloves.

I know the pictures look dark and gloomy and that was an accurate depiction of what outside was like.  Fortunately, once I got out there in the snow, driving was not as bad as I thought it might be.  So where was I going?  I had a new appointment with a new fantastic nail artist.

Elevate Day Spa

I was recently referred to Elevate Day Spa for my manicures.  I love it.  Danielle, the owner is phenomenal..  She was professional, the space is beautiful and she did not have 5-6 clients waiting.  She was attentive, timely and helpful throughout the process.  I will definitely be returning in two weeks.

The manicure came out awesome!  I love the color and I also love how my nails feel.  I have been having trouble with my nails chipping and breaking and being too soft.  Now my nails feel strong and I am not having the irritation that I was having from going to my other nail salons.  I am thankful to Lisa Paige for the referral to Danielle.

Preparing for Spring

time out chicago

Last week I came across an article in one of my favorite local magazines Time Out Chicago.   Though not in print anymore, the magazine still offers excellent information not only about the happenings in and around Chicago but gives you things of special interest to consider.  The article was 101 things to do in Chicago. Sadly, though I have lived in Chicago pretty much all of my life there were only 13 things on the list that I have completed.  So my goal is to tackle this list and try to complete the list before the end of 2015.

The list can be printed as a checklist to allow you to check off what you have done.  This will be a great way to keep up with all of the new and exciting things going on in the city.  For me this is a perfect opportunity to experience the city, get out of my comfort zone and do some things that I may not have done otherwise.  It will also afford me the opportunity to experience more of the cultural side of the city, which is extremely diverse.  It can also be a great way to plan date nights or girl’s night out.

I encourage all of my fellow Chicagoans and those who visit the city often to take a look at the list and jump right in.  I also encourage you to share as you make your way through the list I know that I will be sharing with my readers what I have been doing.
