How Not To Pack For A Weekend

Attention! If you have not read I Thought I Was a Minimalist, we recommend doing so before proceeding.       If you have already read it, you know that I am not the best when it comes to packing, it can be a one/two night stay anywhere and I am packing for about five days. Yes, five. Whoever said "less is more" doesn't know Melissa Medina. I would love to be one of those people who firmly believe that less IS more but right now I'm working on it and tried it out this weekend.      My boyfriend and I...

On Belmont between Wolcott and Western you'll find a few good ones, that was my Michigan Ave. I've been a history lover so when I would walk into a shop, I am taken into a completely different era and so I want to buy everything in sight.

A Wedding to Remember

Photo taken by:Deisy Avila      This weekend we had the honor to be a part of our first wedding and it had to be one of the most beautiful weddings I have ever attended. Now, before I go on, I should add that the bride was my cousin and that just made it even more beautiful than it already was.       About a year ago, Crystal had been showing me some of the venues she was interested in and mentioned having an outdoor wedding. Fast forward to a few months ago when I joined Gabriela Ephrem and Gabriela...
