WINDY CITY HABITAT FOR HUMANITY AND LOWE'S BLOCK BUILD

A few weeks ago, I stopped by the recent Block Build in Chicago, held by Lowe's and Windy City Habitat for Humanity. If you're unfamiliar with Habitat for Humanity, they're a non-profit housing ministry that builds homes for those in need. Founded in 1976, Habitat for Humanity is global and has helped provide shelter for 3 million people. At Block Builds, they team up with volunteers to tackle serious home repairs in a neighborhood, helping many families in a big way. It was extremely inspiring to see all of these volunteers come out (even in the rain and cold!) to help extremely grateful people. 

Elizabeth from Windy City Habitat for Humanity took some time out of her day to take me on a tour of the neighborhood, and the work they were doing! 



I loved the tree-lined street and the unique character in each home. 




I also got to check out the new housing being built on the block. How nice are these houses?



You can learn more about Windy City Habitat for Humanity, and even volunteer with them, by checking out their website.

GO FOR THE ROSE GOLD

Ever since I got my rose gold engagement ring, I have been obsessed with blush-hued jewelry. I've never been one to wear anything pink besides an occasional nail polish, but with my paleness and red undertones, yellow gold is very harsh on my skin, unlike rose gold. Consider me converted! And with any obsession, I've been doing quite a bit of online browsing and have found a few rose gold favorites that I can't wait to wear as everyday pieces.
