Finally the weather is righteous, people are out in the streets in shorts and skirts and cute dresses again, and flowers are blooming all over beautiful Chicago. What’s better than summertime Chi? Nothing!

Summer is finally here, and I’d love to usher in the season by introducing you to some of my favorite beauty finds. Chicago bellas, come hang out with me at Walgreens on State, this Saturday the 13, from 1 to 3 pm! Let’s make it a Saturdate (if you will)…


At the Walgreens Beautifully Connected event, I’ll be sharing summer beauty tips on skin, hair and nails, and cluing you guys into some of my favorite drugstore beauty products — including live reviews of my latest faves by Caress, Vaseline, Dove and Motions. We’ll be Instagramming and tweeting the action with the hashtag #bfconnected – Beautifully Connected is a nationwide event, and women across America will be sharing their beauty tips using the #bfconnected hashtag – and we’re gonna represent locally with our own special #bfconnectedCHI hashtag.

I’ll be giving out samples for you beautiful bellas to take with you throughout the event! Also, there will be four live giveaways, where lucky winners will get three (3) full collections of the BeautyFully Connected line of products (valued at $100 each), and at the end, one lucky winner will get a $300 Spafinder gift card! Also from June 30-July 27, Walgreens Balance® Rewards members get 2,000 points with purchase of 2 or more participating Unilever products, including Caress, Vaseline, Dove and Motions. So this will be a good time to re-up on your beauty supplies!

Come get fun freebies and hang out with me! It goes down from 1 to 3 pm this Saturday, July 13 at Walgreens, 151 State Street (yes, the big beautiful State Street flagship Walgreens). See you Saturday!!
