Chicago cuisine is quite unlike anything else. Outsiders might find it hard to believe that in this beloved Midwestern metropolis, we have our own distinct taste. Somehow we manage to be one of the top culinary cities in the US, standing firmly beside the likes of New Orleans, San Francisco and New York.      These cities are loved by "foodies" everywhere. If you don't know what a foodie is, the Merriam Webster dictionary (yes that's right, it's an actual word) defines it as "a person who enjoys and cares about food very much."   READ MORE

There aren’t many feelings comparable to being in love. The beauty, richness, comfort and just pure fun it adds to life are undeniably fulfilling.

Everybody loves a good beauty splurge once in awhile, but it turns out there are just as many products to fall for from your local drugstore that aren’t so hard on your wallet. Makeup counters at large department stores can be quite daunting when you are being bombarded by overwhelming scents, salespeople and samples.
