HOW DO YOU TAKE YOUR COFFEE?

Always some cream and sugar

BIKE, WALK, TRAIN, OR DRIVE?

All the above! Although, if possible rather drive haha.

FAVORITE CHICAGO HANGOUT?

So many places to choose from! Although, neighborhood wise I love going to Wicker Park, Lake View, and of course Uptown!

WHAT’S YOUR IDEAL ROAD TRIP?

A few people I'm close with and driving along the West Coast!

WHAT DRIVES YOU?

Everyone around me and the city of Chicago! Without any of those, I'm not sure where I would be!

WHY CHICAGO?

I grew up here my whole life. The city, itself, is very diverse and I do love that every neighborhood is always different. Probably won't be leaving anytime soon!

CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT…

Everyone involved in my life, my camera, Social Media, food, Netflix, and Hulu.

DO YOU HAVE A FOUR-LEGGED ROOMMATE?

Yep! My boyfriend and I have a cat named Shen! He's the sweetest cat you'll ever meet because he acts more like a dog than anything! He loves people, loves to play fetch, and just a sweetheart in general!

MORNING ROUTINE? ( IN 3’S) WAKE UP, BRUSH TEETH, EAT BREAKFAST

Wake up, snooze alarm for 10 minutes, then feed Shen.

FAVORITE TCHOTCHKE?

Not too sure!

DEFINE YOUR STYLE?

Cozy, yet stylish.

HASHTAG YOURSELF.
