Clean Sweep

What is it about doing a major closet clean up that leaves you feeling so in control and calm? When my closet is in order I feel like my life is more in order. All the unnecessary junk is removed, and everything else is organized to be easily found.

Spring is just over a month away and those thoughts of Spring Cleaning are sure to come out soon. This year the Hip & Urban Girls’ Guide is giving you a great reason to get that closet in order and part ways with those items that are too big/small or haven’t been worn in months. On February 27th they’re hosting a Spring Cleaning Fashion Swap to support Nellie’s Women’s Shelter and Dress for Success.  Here are the details:

  • Date: Monday, February 27
  • Time: 6-9pm
  • Venue: Rent Frock Repeat Showroom 35 Golden Avenue #102
  • Cost: $5, with proceeds donated to Nellie’s Women’s Shelter.
  • Preview RFR’s new 2012 spring collection
  • Enjoy complimentary treats, beverages, style consultations and a $150 door prize from La Roche-Posay

Clothing Swap Rules:

  1. Bring along minimum of 5 items, maximum of 10. Accessories are welcome but no shoes, please!
  2. Clothing should be in good condition – nothing badly worn, torn or stained.
  3. Bring your clothes on hangers if possible – once you arrive, arrange your items by category. We’ll have tables, racks and fitting rooms available.
  4. Swap! Go home with the number of items you came with.
  5. All remaining items will be donated to charity.

You can purchase your $5 Donation Ticket here.

Happy Spring Cleaning!

Thinking about Eat to The Beat TO at Snacktime

Salmon Rolls from Spice Route

It’s 3p.m. meaning the mid-day snack monster is about to be unleashed. This bag of Halloween chips at my desk, however, just won’t compare to all the amazing treats I sampled a few weeks back at Eat to The Beat culinary fundraiser for Breast Cancer. I’ll just have to look at the photos and remember each savory bite….

If you want to make yourself feel bad about that boring salad you had for lunch then check out morefrom the event here.

A Hair Affair: My Visit to Greg May Hair Architects

The ultimate indulgence

Having someome fuss with my hair for a few hours while I sit back and enjoy a coffee comes in a close second to getting a manicure on my list of The Best Ways to Pamper Yourself. At the nail salon or hair salon you can catch up on your celebrity gossip in the latest issue of US Weekly and also get the scoop on some local dirt from your stylist.

My hair got some extra TLC a few weeks ago during my first visit to Greg May Architects Salon in Yorkville. After months of seeing before and after hair makeovers posted on Greg’s Twitter page I knew I had to be next in his chair. The results were awesome and you can read all about my hair pampering here.

Voilà! My new haircut
