Union Pier, Michigan

We spent the week before the 4th of July in Union Pier, MI. Since I've lived in Chicago my family has gone up to this area most summers, as it is an easy 90 minute drive yet feels worlds away.

May Beauty Buys

When we were getting ready for our England trip, I knew there was going to be some jet-lag happening, and I didn't want to look puffy-eyed and sleepy in all our photos! My mom had a pack of Shiseido eye masks and she graciously let me take a few of them for the road. The results are amazing! After washing your face put ...
