This weekend I spent photographing a James Beard dinner at the Four Seasons here in Chicago. One of the guest chefs was Michael Mina and he will be opening up two French Restaurants here in Chicago. I tasted a few of their dishes including fois gras and a puff pastry with escargot this weekend. Incredible! The restaurants open in the next month or so. Stay tuned! I will be checking them out for sure.

Hats are considered “The New Tattoo” according to New York Times Fashion
This past weekend I did some Spring Cleaning so I get to do a little shopping to replace things that were donated. I am prepping for my trip to Cuba so I am all about the sundresses, sandals, and I am going to need a hat. I just got my itinerary this week and I am so excited! The schedule is subject to change but there is one thing on the agenda I didn’t think I was going to be able to do but it is written in the schedule. I promise to share once I know more.
I ordered a few dresses from Nordstrom and JCrew so I will have to try them on once they arrive to see what I like. I will be taking these with me to Paris too so they have to work for both places.
I often get headaches with sunglasses believe it or not but I am going to try out a few or these and see if any of them work.
