I have the most thin, fine hair out there. I would even go on to say my hair might be finer than "baby-fine" hair. The double-whammy. Can't a girl get some volume??

Hey, It’s Megan!

I’m a 9-5er Art Director in Chicago who loves vacations, peanut butter and champagne. I am not a big fan of: waking up early, salad, voicemails, and slow walkers. Adventure is my calling, and I love to be entertained (broadway shows, concerts, movies, etc). I’ve made a goal to read 30 books this year (I am on #6/30). Follow along!

My 5 Favorite Books of 2018

As you probably know by now, I set out to read as many books as possible during 2018. I'm going to use this number as a benchmark for my reading goal of 2019, which has me reflecting on all of the great books I was able to finish this year. So, I thought I'd gather my 5 favorite books from the year! If you haven't added them to your list yet - you absolutely should! 5. A Christmas Carol I had never read this book before, and I loved it so much, I'm going to make it a staple every holiday season! Read it, and you'll immediately be in the Christmas spirit! 4. The Wicked Deep This book had a huge twist at [...]

5 Must-See Christmas Trees in Downtown Chicago

Each year, my Christmas Spirit tends to rely heavily on the presence of snow. These past few years, Chicago has been snowless for most of December (my husband even golfed the day after Christmas a few years ago). I don't get fully in the Christmas mindset in December, then it blizzards in January and I'm like "alright - let's do Christmas!". I'm really working on changing this, because it doesn't look like it will be snowing again this year. One thing I am doing to help me feel Christmasy is watching all the Christmas Movies. There are so many movies on Netflix, Hallmark, Freeform, etc. I've also become an AMC Stubs A-List Member! If you don't know: AMC Stubs A-List Members can see up to THREE movies a WEEK, for [...]

Frankenmuth, MI: The Hallmark Town of Your Dreams

This is my guide to the perfect Hallmark Christmas Movie experience in Frankenmuth! (Sidenote: after posting this, it was announced there will actually be a Christmas movie filmed in Frankenmuth! I've added the link to the story at the bottom of this post.) About Frankenmuth: Frankenmuth is a small Bavarian Town (3 miles2) located in Michigan, about 1.5 hours northwest of Detroit. Nicknamed "Little Bavaria", Frankenmuth's original settlers were from Franken, Bavaria. Adding the term "muth" (German for courage), the settlers named Frankenmuth after the term "courage of the Franconians." Frankenmuth is home to Bronner's Christmas Wonderland (they say it's the World's Largest Christmas Store!). You'll also find many fudge and cheese shops, a cuckoo clock store, and boutiques. You can read more about their history on the Frankenmuth, MI [...]

DIY Christmas Sweater Ornaments for Beginners

One of my favorite family traditions is our Christmas Ornament Exchange every Thanksgiving. We make DIY ornaments throughout the year, and pass them out after Thanksgiving dinner. Now that we are older and we all live across the United States, it's an even more important tradition! Everyone makes their DIY ornaments, and mails them in. I love having a tree full of sentimental ornaments versus store-bought ornaments. It's also fun to see how creative everyone can be. That being said, every year mine tend to fall apart... But not this year! I was determined to make something that would last. Earlier this year, I decided I was going to make Christmas Sweater ornaments, but was totally intimidated to sew them. I made these super easy sweaters, and if I can [...]

Your Guide to Alsace, France

Why Alsace is famous: Alsace and the Black Forest Region were the inspiration for the infamous Grimm Brothers' Fairytales, as well as the setting for Beauty and the Beast. The houses look like they're straight out of a fairytale. Alsace also has a large stork population, and the story of storks bringing babies to parents originated here. If a stork makes a nest on your house, you have to protect it by placing a metal ring around it, so when the storks return from their migration, they can come home to the same nest. During WWII (and before), Alsace changed hands between the French and German many times, and it's easy to see the influence of both countries. Even the language spoken in the area has both French and German [...]

2018 Holiday Gift Guides

My favorite aspect to the holiday season is giving gifts. The key to giving the best gift is to listen throughout the year to what your friends and family mention they want or need. Keep a list in the notes section of your phone so you always have it handy! That's obviously a more involved approach to gift giving. If you have no idea what to get your friends and family this year – let me help! I've compiled a few Gift Guides to help your shopping journey. [/fusion_text][/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container] A Gift Guide for the Traveler Not quite sure what to buy for the traveler in your family?
