We hope you have all had a wonderful week and are counting down the minutes until you can jet out of work and on to some long weekend adventures ahead. But before happy hour officially begins, we are launching a new series to give you a more personal look into the daily and blogging lives of our team.
We put a lot of time, photo editing, recipe testing, email responding, writing and styling time into Lux and Concord…and we love every minute! So now we’re going to start sharing some of the process with you in our “Behind the Scenes” posts. This will be a spot for outtakes, special previews and unposted photos so you can see the people behind the blog posts…
This month was a big one for Kaitlin. May was her last full month in her temporary home of Seattle before she makes the big move (back!) to Chicago. In addition to packing, and snapping the cutest photos of her son, she also worked on some fun projects.
She got her hair did, and discovered some serious styling secrets from our friends at Sassoon Salon, because summer heat is not kind to our strands. Keep an eye out for more hair tips and tricks coming your way soon!
She also poured out spa water for fun warm weather recipes that will have you hydrated and healthy. They’re up on the blog today!
Meanwhile, in Chicago, Ali and Kaleigh went from sparkles to squats in the blink of an eye. May was packed with fun events in the Windy City including trying summer cocktails at Wicker Park’s The Bedford with James & Sons Fine Jewelers. Ali even tried on her first Rolex, with a measly $20K price tag. Guess we know what’s on her birthday wish list now!
Kaleigh then spent a day with Jax & Debb, hosting a spring fashion event with their wonderful team. She got hosting ready with clothing from Rails and a beauty boost from the girls at George the Salon, who even helped with her makeup before the event.
Ali meanwhile put us all to shame with an ab-tastic shoot at The Spa at Trump Health Club. She also gave up grains for the month of May, while Kaleigh went dairy-free. Six pack stomach, we’re coming for you! Check back in June for the full work out routine.
There’s even more to come in June with lots of travel help, party planning and style tips on the horizon. But until then, enjoy the long weekend!
