Okay Monday, you weren’t so bad 😉 Checked a ton off my to-do list, tried @cpnorthcenter’s Suspend class (basically Pilates with a lot of work on TRX bands - so fun! 💪🏼), and finally tried @barillaus’ red lentil pasta because I’m a nerd and I need to try ALL the healthier pasta options in the world 🤓 Check out my stories to see what I thought! (Hint: the texture is on POINT) And if you’ve been thinking about trying pilates, you can probably tell that I’ve been loving @clubpilates recently - and if you mention Lake Shore Lady, you can get 10% off a 1 Month or 3 Month membership at their North Center and Lincoln Park locations! Any other Pilates fans out there? http://liketk.it/2xtye #liketkit @liketoknow.it #LTKfit #LSLworkout.
Dog sitting for my parents’ golden last night made me feel like I’m not ready to get a puppy and I absolutely NEED to get a puppy at the exact same time 😂 Are of you guys dog owners? What kind do you have?! #puppylove PS. You can shop my look in the @liketoknow.it app or on the Shop page on LakeShoreLady.com! http://liketk.it/2xskM #liketkit #LSLstyle
Ok so remember that pomodoro sauce with @barillaus Collezione pasta that @insta.flamm made the other day? Well, @thekittchen and I wanted to make sure all of you guys could taste it too, so we recreated the recipe with a few easier subs - think less Top Chef, more home cook 😉 EXAMPLE: He dried out the peels of the tomatoes he used for the sauce in the oven, and then used a microplane to grate that over the top for an extra tomatoey burst of flavor. GENIUS, RIGHT?! Except would any of you actually do that at home? (Don't worry, I wouldn't either 🤫) Luckily, Kit and I discovered that you can get the same rich flavor by grating store bought sundried tomatoes over the top - which is exactly what I'm doing in this photo! SO easy, yet SO impressive. Oh, and pretty darn delicious, too 🍝 Do you have any easy yet impressive cooking hacks?! Read more and get the recipe for this Perfect Pomodoro on LakeShoreLady.com now!

Took my white skirt out for one last spin before the first day of Fall 😉 We went to @eatalychicago’s SeptemberFest last night and it was such a blast! Tons of food, amazing wine, a spritz cart, @bombobar bombolonis, and a live band - SO much fun 💃🏻 Now getting ready to dogsit for my parents golden retriever today! Solid weekend over here 😍 What are you guys up to? Ps. This sweater is on sale for $12 right now, so I just bought it in pink, too! Wearing an XS and can’t recommend it enough.

Still thinking about yesterday's INSANE lunch with @barillaus at @spiaggiachicago! #ad It's not every day you get to eat the most perfect pomodoro made by Top Chef winner @insta.flamm with Barilla® Collezione rigatoni alongside @rogerfederer and @mikaelashiffrin 🙌🏼Just a casual afternoon at the office, right? 😂 And don't worry, I'm working on recreating the sauce we ate for the blog... stay tuned!🍝#BarillaCollezione #MastersofPasta PS. Swipe to see the pasta we were served... SO GOOD!!
Let’s be real about shopping for a second: sometimes style/fashion can be intimidating. It’s so easy to focus on what you think you should be wearing - what people expect of you, what’s “in” right now, what will impress people. But this dress was such a reminder for me to WEAR WHAT YOU LOVE! Of course, we all can’t wear dresses with flamingos on them every day (if only, right?! 😂) but adding pieces to your closet that make you happy can do wonders for your self confidence. Read more about this (and shop this look!) on LakeShoreLady.com today - just swipe up in my story! Can you think of a piece of clothing that brings you joy? What is it?! I’d love to know! @liketoknow.it #liketkit http://liketk.it/2xoZq #LSLstyle
Anyone interested in a weekend filled with pasta and tennis?! 🍝🎾 Head to the Laver Cup Fan Village (in the United Center parking lot) Thursday-Sunday to catch a glimpse of some of the world’s best players and see cooking demos/taste test with @barillaus! (Entry is FREE!) And keep an eye out for “Little Gemelli” around the city the next few days! It’s Barilla’s cute little Italian Ape Car with a mobile pasta kitchen inside - so cute! @thekittchen and I got to check it out tonight... and we may or may not be trying to figure out how to get one for ourselves 😉 #spon #mastersofpasta
I’ve really loved traveling recently... but at the end of the day, there’s no place like home 😍 Today was a productive work day, with a great class at @cpnorthcenter mixed in, and now the Emmys (Did you guys see the proposal?! MY HEART!) Not a bad Monday... but pretty excited for an even better Tuesday 😉 How was your day?! #chicago
