Even though I wasn’t born and raised here, I do claim to be a Chicagoan, I’ve been here 11yrs and I love this city!
Often friends, family and friends of friends ask for advice on where to go and what to do when visiting Chicago and I’m always more than happy to share this amazing little piece of the world.
I actually at one time had a pre-fab email with all of my favorite bars, restaurants and shopping areas. Well, now you can find me on an app! Yep, you read that right! I stumbled upon Cool Cousin when I was looking for unique places to see when in Paris earlier this year. I loved it so much I wanted to help out with Chicago!! You can search through profiles of locals of cities across the world and find out where their favorite coffee shop is or essentially a more authentic tour guide. You can find someone who seems to have the same style or interests as you and then look at their custom map with all of their hot spots and a little description of each. I had so much fun putting this together and I have shared some of the pics from the photoshoot!

Please excuse the hair…it was about 90 degrees the day we did this photoshoot! Thank goodness the dripping sweat isn’t showing, ha!
