Roundup! Weekend Getaway Columbus

I couldn’t believe the outpouring of suggestions from my blog post sharing that JPC and I would be taking a mini-road trip and visiting our sister city, Columbus. While I wasn’t able to visit all the recommended locales, I did hit quite a few and you did not disappoint with the suggestions! I figured it’s only fitting to pass these gems along to ensure a perfect trip of fashion, fab eats, and fun galleries.

High Street is full of the most perfect little boutiques - stumbling up and down the street you are more than guaranteed to find something that will fit perfectly in your closet. Further, so many of these boutiques have great brands that I typically wait to shop for when I’m in NYC - it’s great to see IRO and Schutz here in Ohio! If you’re looking for some of these high end goodies, check out Ladybird and Rowe.

Getting The Glow

A little over a week ago I hosted a spray tan party thanks to an invite from VersaSpa, a trend setting company that develops sunless tanning systems in our favorite tanning salons all over the country.

I haven’t been this excited for an invitation in awhile - mostly because I think this brings me the closest to feeling like a Real Housewife cast member than anything I’ve ever done before. Those bitches are ALWAYS having spray tan parties.

Why I Wrote A Crazy Engagement Ring Post

Do you remember back to my very close to Valentine’s Day post titled, Engagement Rings for Every Style? I’m sure you do - it was LITERALLY one of my most read posts ever. 

The only reason I can think it was so popular was because you all thought I was having a real life meltdown. Hurry! Look! The girl who claims she isn’t sold on the idea of marriage just wrote a post on engagement rings right before the biggest love holiday of the year AND her birthday. She must be begging for that JPC dude of hers to propose.

Time for a Getaway - Columbus Bound

Now that my half marathon is completed, I’m thrilled to share that my Saturdays feel like my own again! Not that having a long run scheduled ruined any big plans, but it’s hard to accommodate any all day activities when you need to fit in a long run and some recovery.

While Columbus is just a short 2-hour drive from Cleveland, it’s a city I haven’t explored much since returning to Ohio. I’m looking forward to a day of shopping, eating and cocktailing around town!

Summer is right around the corner… I swear. 

Even more exciting, one of my favorite friends is about to unveil a masterpiece of a project - a phenomenal luxury apartment building in the Detroit Shoreway. Even better? He’s swinging open the doors to the killer rooftop by hosting a Summer soiree and fashion show with Project Runway Alum, Valerie Mayen, owner and designer of the fab Detroit Shoreway Yellowcake Shop

Rocking to The 90’s

Cleveland is going to host the Gay Games this summer and to kick off an amazing series of sporting events, the Museum of Contemporary Art hosted a 90’s dance party this past weekend. 

With a few DJs, drag queens and TONS of Backstreet Boys/MC Hammer/Lisa Loeb sing-a-longs the night was epic.

I met this lovely boy and my overall twin the moment we walked in the door.

Half Marathon Training: Week 10

A day late… whoops! It was too fun of a weekend to worry about blogging ;) The week’s are flying by - I’ve altered my training a bit to move my longer weekday run from Monday’s to Wednesday’s since I get to Run the Bridges downtown with my Spin studio. Having a group to run with makes the run go much faster.

Aerial Yoga

My fabulous friend Rachael is probably the fittest gal I know. She’s a yoga pro and does ALL OF THE PILATES. When she told me about her aerial yoga class that she’s been regularly going to I knew it had to be good and the other night, she brought me as her plus 1!
