Friday Five

TGIF, Windy City Bloggers! Meredith here, the blogger who bares all her corporate America career struggles on Job Offers and Bad Boyfriends. If you’ve ever thought job hunting and dating were eerily similar, you’re NOT the only one. And if you’re a sucker for a good metaphor you’ll definitely appreciate my chronicles on careers and relationships. But enough about me, let’s get down to the best of the best with this weeks Friday Five.

  • Love is in the air on Chic Little Secret. Kristen, the stylish photographer and blogger celebrated her one year wedding anniversary on July 4th, with a special photo shoot between her and her handsome hubby. Here’s hoping my actual wedding photos turn out as gorgeous as her anniversary shoot.
  • As a fellow blogger I could totally relate to Lisa’s post about “Why Blogging Is Scary” this week on Strum Simmer Sip. A must read if you’ve ever struggled with putting yourself out there, or building confidence as a blogger.
  • I’ve been really into exploring different areas of Chicago recently – even after eight years here, I feel like there’s so much I haven’t explored. Then I discovered The Urbane Nomad through WCBC, and I fell in love with JJ’s beautiful urban photography and Chicago city guides. Need activity inspiration in Chicago this summer? Look no further than this blog.
  • I spent the 4th of July in Atlanta eating nothing but Southern fried chicken and potatoes. My stomach needed a serious detox, but naturally I still desired some summer backyard BBQ flavor. The Crafty Coin posted a phenomenal (and healthy!) BBQ menu on the blog this week that was exactly what the doctor ordered.
  • A newbie but goodie to the WCBC, You’re Still Fat is a fashion and lifestyle blog that’s worth the calories. These girls are chic geniuses, and reading their posts is probably the best possible way I can think of to wrap up your work week.
  • You know you love me, xoxo
