Get to know Mary:
During the summer months I generally load up on as many "beach reads" as I can. This summer I started with "Beautiful Ruins" by Jess Walter and I'm now reading "Where We Belong" by Emily Giffin. My online guilty pleasures consist of Corals and Cognacs (she is a fantastic writer and hilarious!), Pink Peonies and A Pair & A Spare (for her amazingly creative DIY projects).
2. Favorite recipe or restaurant?
I live in the West Loop so I'm somewhat of a foodie by association. There are a number of amazing restaurants in my neighborhood - I mean they don't call it restaurant row for nothing! With that said, I like to venture out of my neighborhood to explore other neighborhoods in Chicago. Antique Taco in Wicker Park is one of those places that I visit more than my parents. The owners are the loveliest people you will meet and their food is equally as lovely. If you haven't been, you must go!
3. What's your favorite thing about blogging?
This experience has brought so many new and wonderful people in my life - aka bloggers. I love the networking aspect and sharing my passion with others who share the same ones!
4. Five things on your wish list?
- Valentino Rockstud pumps - who doesn't?!
- Ray Ban Mirrored Sunnies
- These patterned Vans
- This straw tote with tassels from Everything But Water
- ASOS Wrap Dress - perfect for wedding season!
