Travel Diary

This post is basically a round trip ticket to my recent girls trip in Chicago. 

Day #1: This day also just happened to be my birthday! (Cheers to being 22!!!) Myself along with my sisters Ry & Keat started out early by heading to the airport at 3:15am for our red eye flight! I’ve never been so excited to be awake at that hour! Lol We got Chicago and checked into our hotel The Godfrey & headed downstairs to a yummy breakfast at Dolce! This is a restaurant at our hotel with such a cool vibe! They also have a rooftop lounge with glass ceilings that was beautiful!(I would highly recommend this hotel who wants a more boutique/personalized style stay!) Then it was time to walk to Michigan Ave & let the shopping begin! I treated myself to couple total statement pieces! A Ivory studded leather jacket, and emerald green booties….when in Chicago?!;) Then I set up surprise appts for us to get our hair done! Nothing better then someone else washing and styling your hair for vacay;) After that we got a couple appetizers for lunch & went back to the hotel for a much needed nap. We woke up to a bottle of champagne being delivered to the room & started getting ready for the night. It was my first time going to a comedy show, it was inappropriate, funny, but mostly inappropriate! Then Ry planned a surprise late  night birthday dinner for us at RPM Italian. This is Giuliana Rancic’s restaurant, it was gorgeous with top notch service! (Not even kidding the best customer service ever!) Plus, they brought out the most adorable mini ice cream cones with gelato for my bday! After such a go go go, amazing day it was time for some beauty rest!

Day #2: Nothing like a slumber party & waking up to breakfast in bed. We got ready for the day & did some more walking around, window shopping & went to millennium park to get the touristy pic with The Bean! Then on our walk back to the hotel, we stopped at Portillo’s to get Chicago Hot Dog’s. This is one of the things I was most excited about believe it or not! Later, we went to see the view at a bar on 70 floor of a building overlooking the city and lake! But of course on our last night we had to have some Chicago style pizza so we went to Lou Malnatis, we got so many recommendations to this place as it’s one of the last family owned pizzerias! We went to bed after dinner since we had to be awake at 6am the next day to head to the airport. This trip consisted of 4 of my fav things, family, food, shopping & sleeping! Lol Now back reality!

Did you feel like you basically came on the trip with me?;) “Travel is the only thing you can spend money on that will make you richer” My mom sent me that quote the day I was booking this trip & I 110% think that is true. To me, life is about experience. That’s all for now, as I’m impatiently waiting for my next travels.
