    Simply Stylist Chicago

    Photo credit: Azeez Bakare   This past weekend I attended Simply Stylist Chicago at the Dana Hotel and Spa to learn all the ins and outs of styling, make up, and blogging. Although it was one of the hottest days of the summer, everyone came dressed to impress. My day started with a celebrity panel hosted by Catt Sadler. The panel consist of Corrie McFadan, Jacey Duprie, Joey Maalouf, and Sazan Hendrix. Each one had their own unique story on why and how they started their businesses. I loved Corri McFadden’s, founder of eDrop Off, view on never giving up and not letting other get you down; she was a serious…

    How to Thrift

      Over the past couple of weeks my friend Liz and I have been hitting up the best thrift stores in Columbus to create a list of tips and stores for you guys! (Of course we did a little shopping while we were at it as well). Liz and I became friends through blogging. She is a very trendy lifestyle and mommy blogger who also shares the same love of bargain hunting as I do. Seeing that I am fairly new to Columbus, I reached out to her to see if she could show me the ropes. Liz knows her way around the thrift stores and knows how to work…
