Mode Media in Chicago #ModeMediaChi

A few nights ago, I was lucky enough to get invited to attend a party hosted by Mode Media (formerly Glam Media). If you are a blogger and don’t know who Mode is, you need to get yourself familiar because they provide all kinds of collaboration and monetizing opportunities for bloggers who are a part of the network. 

I am not yet a part of the group but I learned a lot from some of my blogging besties that night and I am totally interested in joining!

 The event was held on a gorgeous summer evening on the rooftop of the Mile North Hotel, the 52Eighty lounge. I think the reason we Chicagoans can stand the long brutal winters are because nights like these make it so worth it. 

Scroll down to see pics of the event and check out hashtag #modemediachi for more behind the scenes snaps!

Love these candids! 

We wouldn’t be bloggers if we didn’t have our cell phones out while chatting!

My favorite snack of the evening – these yummy watermelon and basil bites!

  • Peut Etre means ‘perhaps’ in French ~ i love it because it reminds me that anything is possible ❤️ (its also my answer whenever my kids ask me to buy them something 🙃)
  • A statement blazer is never not a good idea 💥 mine is thrifted but just for YOU ALL this time I sourced quite a few designer resale blazers that are equally amahzing and linked them on the ‘shop’ page of the blog - (in a variety of sizes) enjoy!
  • Just hit publish on a new blog post sharing my Living Room makeover! We decided we’re moving right after I started this project, so I didn’t do everything I had planned (saving that for the new place!) but nevertheless, I did zhuzh it up quite a bit! Hope you like ❤️ {Link to post in my profile}
  • Happy Mother’s day from me and baby Soph! I’m going to be so sad to leave her nursery when we move - if you want to see a tour check out the link in my profile or search ‘nursery reveal’ on the blog 💕 (p.s. she looks so teeny without hair doesn’t she?) #mothersday
  • IG vs. Reality - house hunting edition. Was trying to take a pic with Sophia by this adorable entry at a house we toured. I ended up bribing her with my bag 😂Swipe to see what the other 373626 pics look like... I always wear slip on shoes and comfortable clothes for home shopping because it’s stressful enough as it is - fun too though 💕{what I’m wearing or similar on the ‘shop’ page of the blog}
  • Been so busy with house hunting and fasting I forgot to say Ramadan Mubarak to all who celebrate! I’m fasting after two years off (first being pregnant, then nursing) so it was scary at first but I’m pleasantly surprised how easy it has been! Not yelling at my kids has probably been the hardest part tbh 😂 Here’s a pic @annieswift snapped of me while our Uber driver patiently waited and watched from outside lol
  • Going out house hunting today! Are you guys into move-in ready homes, fixer uppers you can renovate to your taste, or brand new construction you help design?? I’m leaning towards the fixer upper myself!
  • New new in thanks to @basimmichelle just in time for Ramadan and Eid! 💕 (how gorgeous is the embroidery on the pants 😍) also going to do some much needed Spring cleaning my closet today ~ wish me luck! What are you all up to this weekend??
  • Wondering how late is *too* late to mail out thank you cards...I’ve had a stack signed and sealed (from multiple birthdays) waiting for stamps for longer than I care to admit 🙈 🙈 thoughts???
