Chicago Staycation at You Are Where I Go

I recently planned a local staycation in Chicago near Wicker Park/West Town area at an adorable Airbnb called You Are Where I Go. This place is in a great location and conveniently located near the Blue Line (Division stop). I mean, just check out this place!

I love the travel themed decor. It’s super cozy, chic, modern and clean (which is so important). The hosts of this Airbnb, Alex and Danny, are Superhosts, meaning they’re highly rated. I always lean towards booking with Superhosts because they are usually very responsive, accommodating, etc. and this was definitely the case.

They provided us with everything we need (kitchen utensils, bathroom supplies, etc.). There’s just something more home-y about staying at an Airbnb than a hotel and this place was definitely that home away from home feel. There were plants scattered throughout the place, which made me happy to see (all the plant lovers out there get me) and I even went ahead and watered them haha!

One of my favorite decor touches was this guestbook, which of course I had to sign before leaving.

I will definitely return back here for a local staycation and recommend to anyone traveling to Chicago.

Happy and safe travels!

Intentions for March

Happy almost March! With the new month approaching, it’s a great time to reflect on the previous month as well as think about some things you want to work on for the upcoming month. Let’s take some time to set intentions for March together. Here are a few of mine:

  • Take myself on more dates (self-love baby)
  • Be more mindful and present when teaching yoga
  • Work on expanding my fitness routine
  • Educate myself about the yoga sutras and history of yoga

Calling All Ladies

Ladies, I have something personal to share with you. I recently switched to using LOLA’s feminine products and had to share! LOLA is a female founded business that uses 100% certified organic cotton products. They partner with nonprofits to donate feminine hygiene products and work with organizations to end the tampon tax (how crazy is it that 31 states still tax on feminine hygiene products?).

LOLA has an easy monthly subscription service so I can get my tampons and cleansing wipes sent directly to me every month (it seriously makes that time of the month so much easier). I also love LOLA because they have customizable boxes so you can choose the exact number of tampons sizes you want to include.

If you’re interested in trying LOLA out for yourself, receive $5 off your first subscription here.
