Happy Saturday ya’ll! I went MIA again and I apologize for that but it’s been a week full of moving around and full of anxiety and happiness. If you follow me on Instagram you probably saw the photo I posted of my five day old baby sister Amani and I. I’m so excited for this new addition to our family and so last week was all about family and I totally neglected my blog. This blog post should have actually been out weeks ago and it’s a follow up of the Chicago trip I took( yeah I know! What am I actually doing with my life?)
Second day in Chicago was actually the fourth of July so a lot of the places we wanted to go to were closed therefore, we spent it eating, chilling at the beach and exploring the city! We had breakfast at the Original Pancake house where my sister had actually been before but I hadn’t and it was honestly amazing I don’t know why I’ve never been!
After that we stopped by the cupcake ATM and some cute little shops and then walked straight to the beach. I still think that a beach in the city is everything! You could have a busy day in the city and get to unwind at the beach….It’s just amazing!
Shoutout to the lady that took this cute photo of us! There was a lot of beautiful wall art at the beach as you can see below. After chilling at the beach a little damage to my bank account was done at Zara and H And M, but it was so much fun shopping in Chicago. Something about shopping in Chicago just made it so much better. We tried exploring a few coffee spots all of which were closed except for one at the park which had the best lattes (not photographed, that’s how good they were). In the evening we headed back to Oak Park Beach for the fireworks, we couldn’t make it to the pier because we were lazy and Oak park was just five minutes from our hotel.
Next day coming right up…
Thank you for tuning in!
