Weekend Snapshots

Alas another Monday is here and another weekend is in the books. For the most part Chicago kept its weather at bay up until today when I woke up to lightening storms, that was lovely. 

Friday my sister and I hit up the Nordstrom Anniversary early access sale and we both walked out of there with a handful of awesome deals. I ended up getting 2 pairs of Zella 'live in' leggings, a Kendra Scott necklace, denim leggings, and the most adorable blush pink maxi dress that I plan on wearing for our engagement shoot next month! I have my eye on a Kate Spade cross body as well, but I dropped some hints and think I'll be getting it as a birthday gift ;)!

Saturday after having a quick bite for breakfast my sister and I headed out for the Brookfield Zoo. I hadn't been in over 2 years so I was excited to go and see all the new exhibits and my favorite animals. The rain was a little bit annoying, but it meant less of a crowd which was fine with me. 


Sunday was spent laying around, getting laundry done and catching up on True Detective. I've also started reading Holly Madison's new book Down the Rabbit Hole, it's really intriguing and gives you an interesting insight as to what was really going on inside the Playboy mansion. If you're looking for a light and refreshing book to get into, I definitely recommend it. Later that evening my sister and I headed to the movies to watch some Magic Mike XXL, I really loved it! I think it was light years better than the first one as far as the story line not completely sucking, at least it seemed to have some sort of angle to it. Plus the hot, half naked men dancing to some great music wasn't a bad deal. 

 These wonderful bloggers are teaming up to give away the brand spankin new Urban Decay Naked Smokey palette. Be sure to enter the giveaway :)!
