The weekend is here!

My dear readers, what do you have planned for the weekend? I’m off to Chicago tonight for two and a half days of food, fun and catching up with friends. Any tips for exciting adventures in the Windy City? The last time I was in Chicago, it was February (and negative degrees) so for trip #2, I have some exploring to do!

Before I go, take a peek at a few happy posts from around the web to get your weekend started right:

Pink Parasols
as cocktail accessories.
DIY pillow shams from Design Sponge. (You should know I’m on the hunt for my own pillow shams — after reading this, maybe I should just make them myself?)
New (and artfully designed) roll-on cologne from Diptyque. I agree with Julie Earle-Levine, I want to try L’Eau.
