Style + Sustainability Gala | Closet Full of Cocktails

Next Saturday, Modern Makers and Urban Blooms are teaming up to bring Cincinnati’s most sustainable and collaborative fashion experience. Some of the designers include: Anastasiya Yatsuk of TextileHaus, Jackie Bertolette of RJ LUNA, Allie & Ashley Shartle of Twin Echo and many more.

I can’t wait to explore and network with local vendors, indulge in the city’s best food trucks and take in the main event down the moss catwalk. That’s right, a living runway!

Tickets are still available, but going quickly. So if you want to be part of this spectacular and unique event, join me & the ladies of Thread Cincinnati and get yours today.

PS – You can RSVP on Facebook here!

Classic Combo: B&W

No matter what the season, nothing is more classic than a black + white combo! Though the “white after Labor Day” cliche is looming, that’s never stopped me from wearing white all year long!

So whether it’s winter, spring, summer or fall, black + white is always “in” in my book 🙂

Nordstrom Summer Clearance Sale

Let’s be honest: I love Nordstrom as much as the next person, but that #postgradlife means I can only really shop there if there’s a serious sale.

First, there was the Anniversary Sale, now it’s Summer Clearance time.

And don’t be fooled by the name: Just because it’s a summer sale doesn’t mean there aren’t great fall pieces marked down, too.

So here are some of my top picks to make your Nordstrom Summer Clearance perusing even easier (but maybe more expensive)!

Buffalo Wing Festival

Every time I go home is a treat, but my time spent in Buffalo is even better when I’m enjoying the tastes of home. Think Tim Hortons, Mighty Taco, Duff’s and more.

So when my parents suggested going to the National Buffalo Wing Festival, I was all in!

First, we did some walking around the city. For not having lived there for about 5 years now, a lot has changed… so I love a good exploration to catch up on what I’ve missed.

Then off to the main event. We dined on some of the most delicious wings from all across the country, and Buffalonians know wings.

And just when we thought there would only be locals in attendance, look how many people came from out of town!

All together, we tried 10 different flavors: Cajun Dry Rub and Buffalo Medium from Brew Brothers Grille, Goslings Black Rum BBQ and Garlic Parmesan from BrickHouse Tavern & Tap, Carribean Jerk and Asian BBQ from Curly’s, Dr. Pepper BBQ from Duff’s and Honey Sriracha Rub, Maple Bacon and Loaded Baked Potato from Boneheads Wing Bar.

Is your mouth watering yet?

So if you’re ever looking to make a trip to Buffalo (maybe to explore the breathtaking Niagara Falls) you should go to Buffalo Wing Fest… you won’t regret it. But maybe pack some heartburn medicine 😉

Bloggers, Bubbles & Blowouts

If you’re a Parks and Recreation fan like me, you’ll know the meaning of these 3 words: treat. yo. self. And that’s exactly what me and some of the Thread ladies did at Sia Spa.

This past Tuesday, we partnered with the local Kenwood medical spa + salon to put together a fabulous night of pampering: Bloggers, Bubbles and Blowouts. Because who doesn’t love to break up a stressful work week with champagne and a blowout?

As part of the event, Sia Spa offered some amazing deals on their variety of services, including $15 manicures, $25 blowouts, $45 Dermaplane and even some complimentary ones, too! I treated myself to a manicure (definitely buying this color) plus an eyebrow threading (#BrowsOnFleek).

Everyone at Sia was friendly, welcoming and willing to answer any questions we had about their plethora of services. As a girl who doesn’t often treat herself, I will definitely be back for a facial, massage or even a blowout soon!

Denim Romper

Welp, I did it again… I let the busy life (and occasional laziness) get the best of me. So now it’s been two weeks since my last post! *Note to self: Be more accountable.*

Ranting aside, it has been a crazy couple of weeks. I’m finally settled into my new apartment and have the next few weekends booked with fun trips. Needless to say, I’ve been planning outfits like a crazy woman!

Enter one of my favorite go-to pieces for this summer/fall: the denim romper. Dress it up or down, this thing is going to get so much wear! You can wear it on its own with some bright accessories for a summery look, or layer it up with a chunky cardigan and felt hat for a more fall-inspired outfit. The possibilities are endless!
