The shared experience of living in a city with so many quirks, histories, and unique and diverse neighborhoods bring us together in sometimes surprising ways. Despite the many challenges Chicago faces, when the city rises together from the ground up it is a beautiful sight. Today we're sharing about our good friends at Arise Creations, which teaches teenage girls professional and entrepreneurial skills through crafting beautiful, handmade jewelry.
Check out today's posts to learn about an awesome, wooden watch we recently fell in love with! If you're looking for an unique men's or women's watch that'll bring a new twist to your wrist game, you'll want to check this out!
We recently had a weeknight date night to see La La Land up at Logan Theatre. Today we're sharing about some of the themes we could relate to from the movie and a couple easy transition looks that took us from the office to date night!
We've been married for 6 and a half months. Some people would probably say we're still in the honeymoon phase... where things are still new and exciting and easy, and to be honest we kind of are. However, we've quickly realized the importance of continuing to find new ways to pursue one another as time goes on...
It has been one heck of a year for us... one we will never forget. 2016 was in many ways an "unbeatable" year. And though nearly all farewells ring somewhat bittersweet, we are ready to bid adieu to 2016 and thrilled to ring in 2017! Today we want to share with you a few of the principles we're planning to implement this year to help us see our resolutions through to 2018!
As we head into 2017, we've been deliberate about setting goals together and a direction for the upcoming year. For Everyday Urban, this means collaborating with individuals and organizations who are passionately pursuing meaningful and innovative work. With this goal in mind in for 2017, we couldn't be more excited to tell you about ShareHope and offer you the opportunity to win a pair of their (freakishly amazing) athletic leggings!
When we first created the Everyday Urban blog and Instagram account we had no idea where it would take us, and still have no idea, but even in its infancy state we have been SO pleasantly surprised by all the connections and budding friendship that have started through this creative endeavor together! Check out this latest post for some snowy pics with our new friend, Hernan!
They say that the only constant thing in life is change, and we've never felt that to be more true than right now. Both of us are beyond excited about the new job opportunity that lies ahead for me and for the small window of time that I will have between jobs (during which we will be traveling)! This past weekend, we celebrated by getting new shoes and spending Saturday in Logan Square...
If you’re in a place right now where you need to evaluate the direction of your career, I want to encourage you to read and REALLY think through these questions that I asked myself as I began to asses my own career. I hope you find this helpful!
It is safe to say, 2016 is the year of the Bomber Jacket. You can find one on the rack at pretty much every store, menswear blogs and magazine cover this fall. And for good reason! It meshes together a classic, athletic vibe, while maintaining a stylish and tailored look. Being THE jacket of the season (and many to come) there are seemingly limitless options on the market. After a long search, I landed on this blue bomber from H&M.
