Hello from Grand Rapids! I’m spending the next two days exploring the city and hanging out with some fab lady boss bloggers. I also am eating like I’ve been starving my entire life. What’s with that? I need to slow it down, I’ve got T-day coming up too. I will admit it’s been hard to keep up with my clean eating challenge since I’ve been traveling every weekend. Oops.

The good news is that there’s an amazing food scene here; who would have thought that a small little city in Michigan would absolutely be killin’ it at beer, food and all the hipster things? Not I.

Oh and that cookie above? Yep, it’s from Wealthy Street Bakery in Grand Rapids. I took two bites and had to restrain myself from finishing the entire thing. HELP ME.

I’ll have more updates for you soon on all things GR, for now I have a few small things to share! First, my Grandma and mom are coming into town next week. I’m feeling massive pressure to get ALL THE THINGS done so that I can entertain them in Chicago, but I’m confident that as soon as they’re here all of my work-related stress will go right out the window.

Next, I’ve become OBSESSED with decorating my apartment. I can’t stop buying things from HomeGoods, MegMade or little random boutique shops online. Is it possible to have an addiction to styling your home? Because I want to do it all the time. That’s not even an exaggeration.

Besides that I have some pretty amazing links to share with you this week. Lots of fabulous recipes & my favorite fashion picks too! Here we go:

An amazing design blog to check out if you’re on a budget. Seriously, love.
