friday five // 02


ONE // SIENA TAVERN // Being friends with people who like to dine fabulously is both a blessing and a curse (only for my poor college wallet). My best friend, Kat, has been talking about Siena Tavern nonstop since, well pretty much since forever...but I finally went with her and tried it out last weekend. I love trying new food all the time, but I'm not kidding when I say that this was one of the best meals that I've ever had. I ordered the Coccoli and the Gnocchi and would highly recommend both (I even Instagrammed a trendy food pic, so that's when you know it's real). I know I'm going to be revisiting this restaurant several times, but the only problem I see myself running into is having to decide if I should try everything on the menu, or just stick with my tried and true favorites. If you're ever in Chicago, you need to make it a point to stop in here!



TWO // LOVE YOUR MELON // One of my roomies is friends with one of the founders of this awesome organization that provides hats to children who have lost their hair due to battling cancer. For every hat that is purchased, they donate a hat to a child. They are currently on their 2014 Smile Tour across the country to spread the word about their organization and smiles to children throughout the U.S. Last week, they stopped on campus to kick off their tour, and I got to learn more about this great organization and purchase an adorable hat. The founders are so genuinely passionate about what they're doing, that it was a no-brainer for me to support this great cause.



THREE // COPPER LEAF MANICURE // Normally I'm one to steer clear of any kind of nail art, but I'm drawn to this understated, but fancy design.



FOUR // MOROCCANOIL CANDLE // Moroccan Oil has expanded their offerings over the past year, and while browsing their site for some hair necessities the other day, I realized that they had a candle, which I can only imagine smells amazing. Imagine your whole house smelling like Moroccan Oil...I'm definitely not opposed. 



FIVE // ONE DIRECTION REMIXES // It's no secret that I have a itsy bitsy thing for One Direction and I love listening to new spins on my favorite songs. 

With Love,
Ellyse
