One of my favorite weekend adventures is to stroll through local farmers markets— and Chicago has quite a few over the Summer! As we get into Fall, there is so much in season worth fighting the crowds to find like tomatoes, sweet corn and pretty much any stand you can find freshly made jam at.  Continue Reading

Invested in a ton of fab Summer wear and don’t know how to repurpose for Fall? I got you way covered. This season, with help from my partners at Polyvore, I’ve created specifically crafted edits that feature Summer’s hottest trends and how you can wear them for Fall (with those hottest trends as well!). A mix of perfection to wear right this second. Continue Reading

So long Summer! And Happy September! As the last look for this summery season, I have already fully embraced this transition. Time to layer on all the goodness of cooler Fall days… and this look is just the beginning of that! Continue Reading

If you’ve been following along via the TMI Blog Instagram, you know that Mama Kim is coming in from Charleston for a wedding and staying with us– which means we finally will get to show our second bedroom some love! Until now, its been an extra storage space aka #ChefAdrian’s closet and filled to the brim with just excess.  Continue Reading

With our trip booked to visit my parents and having been to Charleston, South Carolina a handful of times myself, I thought of no better way to celebrate my excitement than to put together the ultimate guide to The Holy City– with help from the new Charlestonians themselves– view the best-in-class to-do’s, restaurants (of course), cocktail bars, rooftops, cafes, and dessert places– some new and some hidden gems.

It’s no secret that Chicago comes alive in the Summer with so much to do and all the beauty the comes with it.

SUMMER IS HERE! Uh, what a relief! I think I definitely looked forward to Summer way more this year than past and as everyone knows– Chicago is the best in the Summer! Boats, beaches and beer on patios, rooftops and decks… it’s literally the best time of the year. Plus, us Chicagoans only get about 3 great months of it, so we really soak it it!

The sun is shinning, you’re getting your summer glow going (with broad spectrum sunscreen, of course!), but how to make it last? That sun-kissed look is one of the reasons Summer is just so amazing– everyone is getting their Vitamin D, feeling and looking great! As I’m very fair skinned any light tan makes a big difference so I try hard to maintain my new found shimmer using products I’ve loved over the years– most you can even find at any drugstore!  Continue Reading

So when one pieces made their way back into the spotlight, I could not have been happier! And with the range of styles, there are plenty of opportunities to look and feel great all summer long!
