Summertime in the CHI

#summertimeCHI has been a frequent Hashtag that I’ve seen on Twitter and Instagram this summer.  Those who are not from Chicago might ask what does that mean. Well you will always hear Chicagoans say or those that visit this City that “Chicago is a beautiful City in the summer.” Gorgeous lakefront, beautiful skyline like no other, many outdoor restaurants to choose from, various neighborhood summer festivals and activities to participate in… the list goes on and what better way to express that than through the social media way.

I must admit I’ve been busy working and having fun this HOT summer in Chicago as well.  Just last week I attended two work related networking events, a birthday celebration for my client/friend, busy planning a fabulous baby shower later this summer and consulting other clients of mine as well.  I’m having a ball!

The first event I attended was Pin-spiration at The Ritz Carlton Chicago (A Four Seasons Hotel).  This event was inspired by Pinterest, a social media-minded soiree as we pinned perfection, tweeted trends and blogged beauty.  Hashtag #pinritz

The second event was Thursday Therapy.  An event every month designed for the wedding industry pros to meet, mingle and share.  This month’s Thursday Therapy was held at one of my favorite loft spaces in the City, Loft on Lake.  I just loved the Peacock Cake by Elysia Root Cakes that was showcased.  Check it out below.

I apologize for not blogging lately but I do promise to get better.  I am also working on my new website, that should be live within the next few weeks.  Until then…

Cheers!
