Prepping for Haunts

Last night Ms.tobepink came over for a quick dinner and a party consultation. spiced pumpkin wine goes rather nicely with garlic and rosemary! Just a few pics to show you my progress of me setting the tone!

Lemony Snicket in "The Composer is Dead"

I cant wait to check out the Symphony Centers "The Composer is Dead" this Saturday at 3pm. With these past few wickedly chilly days in Chicago, an afternoon at the symphony will be a big hit on my Agenda.

Current Obsession

Im going nuts over this BAG!!! Im picturing it with my great brown flats, my sneakers, my new wool skirt and my missoni tights. I actually cant think of what it wont go well with. Givenchy Large Shiny Grained Nightingale is on the radar...but is it worth being evicted?

An amazing Show

Last night I had the pleasure to see Vicente Fernandez at a sold out show live in Chicago. As always, it was a moving show, full Mariachi, Tequila and thousands of loyal fans enamored with his voice and presence. For those unfamiliar check out this podcast at NPR

New to Chicago: Flirty Girl it up this Fall

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure to scout out Chicago's west loop hottest new gym. The new all women's workout facility, aka Chicago's high end exclusive womens club caters to strong women who want an alternative to the average gym. They didn't skip a beat with the concept nor the interior. I had such a great time owning my stripper pole and hanging out in the locker room. Chandeliers, Pink towels and rose petal soaps have me all kinds of sold. Whether you join on a monthly basis or purchase a punch card Flirty Girl Fitness truly offers a one of a kind program and experience. Dont forget to hit up the spa after your hot bod boxing class and enjoy a Flirtini at the bar! Best yet, a sun deck for the summer!

Green is the new Black

You may already own a "Im not a plastic bag" tote but dont be left out of the loop this fall when you can upgrade your shopper with Cara Zavaletas original design "Green is the new Black" made in the USA canvas tote. Im such a fan of this shopper because its roomier for groceries and great as a carry on. Cara has partnered up with Carbon Fund and some of the proceeds go to the cause! Not only is this a responsible buy but a fantastic gift option this holiday season. Missallfun approved!

My Past Weekend

Yes, Friday I was at Jerry Kleiners Green and Pink themed Bash. I usually dont pose for photos but make exceptions for friends. Last Girl Standing and my coworker at Playboy was buzzing around the scene taking pics and making the mix fun. This explosive event was an invite only and when I arrived it was so mobbed I was escorted through Room 21's Kitchen( A very clean one I must add). Im sooo cool:) Right. Anyway, the party was at one of my favorite locations. The Chicago Illuminating Co. is a great open space with attached garden. The space is truly a gem alone or it can be transformed into whatever your hoping to achieve.
Saturday: Brunch at Wishbone where I had the Mississippi mud coffee, so yummy a sure fire way to start an afternoon and Corn Flake Crusted French Toast. Delish! Then over to Wicker for a Mani-pedi at Pinky Nails followed by a quick costume change and off to my volunteer position at Cut and Paste. This year was amazing! Just look at the audience participation in the photo above!!! She came up dressed like Alice! I had so much fun, a truly unique event. Sunday: Huevos Rancheros at Milk and Honey and you know I didnt forget the Lavender sugar cookie. ITs soo busy there! Nap time... woke up to a text invite to Target I couldnt pass up a quick trip to one of my favorite places. I picked up a few items for the Big MISSALLFUN BASH Oct. 31st! Finally, Bears Packers Game at the new sports bar in wicker, Boundary on Division street. Over a 100 beers and crispy tater tots get my stamp of approval. Missallfun approved!

Marble tops x 3

look at these gorgeous Draper-style cabinets at our friends at Modlife. The set of three would be a perfect buffet with matching lamps and a great bar spread. Two would also serve as a great back to a tufted sofa. The brass pulls are to die for and I just love how marble reflects a soft light from a pair of lamps. Such a great find and price!

This Weekend Event: Cut and

Not to be missed! This Saturday Cut&Paste will be taking Chicago by storm at the Logan square auditorium. This one night event will feature 8 all star contestants battling it out in the digital design world. Last years design tournament was a great addition to Chicago's growing design and creative industry events. The event was beyond stimulating, smart and well organized. I also more happy to have something interesting to do other then dinner and some drinks. Get your culture in!
