Feeling 22 – Bowtiful Bday Brunch

Yesterday I turned 22! (And yes, I blasted Taylor Swift.)

So, this past weekend was filled with plenty of celebrating!



Sunday was an especially special day because I was able to go on a champagne brunch cruise at Navy Pier with Odyssey Cruises Chicago on the Odyssey II with some of my nearest and dearest friends.


3 Arts Club Cafe


I visited Restoration Hardware’s 3 Arts Club Cafe in the Gold Coast recently with one of my blogger buddies, Ashlee, and I think it’s quite possible that I’ve found a new favorite Chicago brunch spot. The service was great, the food was incredible and the location was absolutely GORGEOUS!



Paris Photo Diary

It’s bittersweet that this is my last photo diary from this summer’s trip to Europe. However, some of my favorite photos were taken in Paris, so I’m excited to finally be sharing these with all of you!

Paris was beautiful and quite a bit like I imagined. It rained our first day in the morning, but then it cleared up while we were in Notre Dame.


Venice Photo Diary

The third major city I visited while in Europe was Venice. Today, I’m happy to share some of my favorite photos from the “City of Water” with all of you!

One thing I didn’t expect about Venice was just how HOT it was! The first day was incredibly humid and I felt like a melting popsicle…


Prague Photo Diary

Prague was our second major stop on our trip and I’m so excited to share my photo diary from this stunning city with all of you!


Prague Photo Diary #bowtifultravels 13


As I mentioned in my previous photo diary, Kraków was one of my favorite cities from the trip, but I think that Prague was my number one. All the places we visited were beautiful in their own way, but there was just something about Prague that really made me feel like I was walking through a fairy tale…


Kraków Photo Diary

Hey lovelies, happy Saturday! Today, I’m happy to share my Kraków Photo Diary with all of you. (Fair warning, this post is a bit photo heavy.) Kraków was one of my favorite places that we visited on this trip and the weather was fantastic the entire time we were there. Enjoy!


This was one of the views from our hotel of the Main Square. Check out that blue sky!
