september weekend

this past weekend my sister, becca, came out to chicago to visit me. she was also my model on saturday for my hair school's practical exam. we had to perform our first cut on an actual person, moving up from those mannequins! becca really liked the way her cut turned out, and i did as well. 

after the exam, i took her out to the chicago diner. we both had yummy vegan 'pork' tacos and then shared a platter of chips with salsa and guacamole. after dinner we headed down to the loop for some shopping! 

sunday we went out for lunch at the pick-me-up cafe. after lunch, steve, becca, and i went to millenium park. one of becca's suite-mates at college sent her to chicago with a teddy bear. becca was supposed to take pictures of the bear at places in chicago, so we did some picture taking at some popular places here in the city, then chilled until it was time for her train back home. 

i'm so happy my sister was able to come and visit me (and be my model)! come back soon, becca!

happy autumn!

today is the first day of autumn and i celebrated by making a homemade apple pie and having apple cider alongside it. i love this season so much! i can finally wear the majority of my clothes now, too. i am so happy it's here! i'm so ready for coats, comfy sweaters, tights, boots, scarves, cloudy skies over my head, crunchy leaves beneath my feet, the cool crisp air, and pumpkin patches! 

what are your favorite things about autumn?

renegade craft fair

this past weekend steve and i went to the renegade craft fair here in chicago. it was the first time we had gone to renegade. i loved it! there were so many amazing artists, good music, yummy food, delicious drinks, and fun crafts! one of my favorite things was the magnolia photo booth...

we brought home one new piece of art! a print by berkley illustrations. steve couldn't stop laughing when he saw it, so i knew we had to have it in our home, haha.
it was a good weekend.

it's september! i'm so happy! my most favorite season of all is just around the corner. i can feel hints of it everywhere. the falling leaves, the dark cloudy skies, and the cold crisp air. along with autumn also comes my favorite time for fashion! i am so excited for all of the layers of clothing, the sweaters, the jackets, scarves, and more!
