Happy Friday! I was beginning to think we were going to have a bit of a reprieve from the snow and cold, but alas-the Chicago winter lives on! It has been an exciting week for the Windy City Blogger Collective; thanks to all our wonderful new members who have joined us-we have a ton of fun opportunities in the pipeline for you and can’t wait to share! For now, here are a few great posts from our members this week!
- Kathi of Expert on Time shares her tips on one of her must-have beauty products-eye cream. It feels like this winter has been especially harsh on my skin and her expert advice was just what I needed to up my eye game.
- Beth of Chic and Glamorous put together a great post with some of Lupita Nyong’o’s fab red carpet looks. The 12 Years a Slave actress has been killing it this awards season and I can’t wait to see what she has in store for the Oscars in March!
- Laurie of 312 Beauty gives tips on how to work Pantone’s 2014 color of the year, Radiant Orchid, into your beauty routine. All I know is that I need that Deborah Lippmann nail polish in my life, stat!
- Kailley of Kailley’s Kitchen made Valentine’s Day Doughnut Cupcakes that almost look too good to eat! Note that I said almost-with strawberry-infused pink velvet and marshmallow buttercream, these wouldn’t last long in my house!
- Jill of Hot Pink Style shows us how to stay warm and stylish here in #chiberia. I love how she pairs this cute blazer with a patterned skirt and tights-if only I could make layers look this good!
