The PERFECT City Boot

Once the weather in Chicago turns cold ... we all get excited for boot weather! I love boots. I literally look forward to wearing them year round. Once the snow comes down ... boot season isn't quite as much fun. Wet snow and stylish boots don't always mix. Until now.
The Daphne Black Bootie from Rhea Footwear is city boot PERFECTION. Who so perfect you ask? That's easy ... it's waterproof AND ...
as if that wasn't enough, the no slip tread is the best defense against the icy Chicago sidewalks.
I'm thinking I might have to pick up the brown as well, because they are just that cute.
Check out all the great shoes on their website, and put one on your Christmas list. You'll love them!
Find them on Instagram for great styling ideas too.

Gilmore Girls Morning! #StreamTeam

I felt like a kid on Christmas morning! My Maggie woke me up at 5 a.m., we bounded down the stairs, turned on Netflix and there it was ... "Recently added Gilmore Girls" Let the binge begin!
"Wait ... Maggie yelled! We forgot to start the binge candle." I got out the box it was in and unwrapped it. STOP it right now.
Packed in the Stars Hollow Gazette. How perfect is that?! I enjoyed SO much sitting down and devouring this show with my daughter. It is absolutely my favorite thing when we can snuggle on the couch and just be. Stars Hollow is such a magical place. A Year In The Life takes us through 4 seasons (winter, spring, summer and fall) with the Gilmore ladies. There was coffee, fast talking, pop tarts and family.
Grab a mug and whoever your Rory is ... plop down on the couch and be thankful Netflix picked up this wonderful series. How'd you spend the day after Thanksgiving?

Dr. Strange ... SWOON

I love me some Benedict Cumberbatch. Like ... LOVE. I finally got the chance to take the kiddos to see Dr. Strange.
Being a HUGE Marvel fan, the bar was set high. Rest assured, this movie did NOT disappoint! BC plays Dr Stephen Strange ... arrogant, condescending neurosurgeon who treats everyone like they are beneath him. Even while he was being unlikable ... I still liked him ;)

After a horrific car accident leaves his hands with 19 pins in them, he sets out to find "The Ancient One" in Kamar-Taj to help his body heal and resume his life as a surgeon.
Special effects are the star of the show for sure (See Cloak of Levitation above) it felt like Inception and Marvel collided for this screen spectacle. The kids loved it, I loved it. I highly recommend checking it out.

Do stay for the end. There's a GIANT peek at what's to come ... and I CAN'T WAIT!
