Hello, all you Lovelies! If you follow me on Instagram (@megricks) or on Snapchat (megricks) you saw that I was in Chicago just a few weeks ago with my momma. I hinted that “there were exciting things in the works” happening down there AND there were. I was actually down there for a dance audition I’ve been dreaming of since I was 9. The audition went really really well and I felt super good about it, but we won’t know anything for a few more months.. keep your fingers crossed. Anyways, we had never been to Chicago before so it was a whole new adventure. We LOVED it. We walked pretty much everywhere, shopped till we dropped down Michigan Avenue (also known as The Magnificent Mile), ate lots of GOOD food (we are total foodies), and enjoyed the most amazing weather (BONUS). Some of my fave stores were, Bloomingdales along with their unreal fro yo via Orange Carrot, Banana Republic, A GORGEOUS Nordstrom — it was honestly so beautiful, Zara, and a Ginormous Burberry (truly a work of art). Our fave Restaurants, thanks to some amazing recommendations were, Girl and the Goat (reserve early, it’s unreal), RPM Italian, and Lou Malnatis Pizzeria. We enjoyed some amazing art and museums as well, and really just had so much fun being together, my Mom is my very best friend. I love her dearly. And since everyone keeps asking me, “where to next?” — you’ll just have to wait and see 😉 However, the point to all of this is that I found this sweater in Chicago at Banana Republic and I’m obsessed, plus it’s on sale with additional 40% off. It is the coziest ever which makes me the happiest ever (ha).
Thanks for stopping by and for anyone who gave us the above recommendations, Thank you!
How was everyones Long Weekend? If you follow me on Instagram then you saw that I went skiing with my family this Martin Luther King Day. I love the few long weekends we have this time of year because they are the perfect opportunity to spend a little extra time with the ones you love most. Those are the best kind of days. I am slightly obsessed with my family. Any day I get to spend with my family is a day well spent, in my opinion. So grateful to have them. I’ve been so blessed with such an amazing fam and I am so grateful I get to spend forever with them. Such a happy thought.
In other news.. This has been one of my favorite outfits this winter season. I Especially loved this combo over the holiday season. But, the great thing about this skirt is that it can be worn in multiple ways and makes for the perfect stand out, dressy (and of course classy) outfit. Plus, the other great thing about this skirt is that it is on sale at J.Crew with an additional 40% off!!! I just ordered a few new goodies myself and they were all such an incredible price. Can’t wait to share those new items with you. But, until then, hurry over and shop the sale before it ends.
So grateful for all you amazing readers. Thanks for stopping by!

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve seen a few of these pictures from my roommate Christmas shoot. I obviously couldn’t post all of the pictures there, so here are a few of my very favorites. I really lucked out with such amazing roommates and best friends. I am a big believer that the Lord places people in our lives for a reason. Nothing is coincidence. These two are an incredible blessing in my life. They both had just returned from serving a mission for the LDS church and truly got home just when I needed them. I had just gone through the biggest and most challenging trial of my life this past year and I know the Lord put them in my life to help heal me. I am so blessed to have them. Not only that, but they are always down for late night chips and salsa, dance parties in the apartment, and are my biggest supporters at dance performances. Plus, they let me style this entire shoot exactly how I wanted and it was so so fun!!! Thanks to J.Crew for helping me fulfill my inspiration. Plus, J.Crew is having an extra 40% off all their sale items! Check it out. Gotta love those post Christmas sales! Also, Net-a-Porter is having a huge sale on designer items. Check it.
I just wanted to say a quick hello from the beautiful and snowy Park City + give you a heads up that EVERYTHING at J.Crew is 30% off AND all sale items are an additional 50% off!! There is still time to overnight a last minute package, or just give yourself (or a friend) a little Happy New Year gift. No better way to ring in the new year than with an amazing J.Crew Sale!
My family and I are enjoying a good 47 inches of snow up here in Park City.It’s sort of a blizzard but we are still hitting the slopes and taking advantage of all the fresh powder. Then of course sipping hot chocolate and warming by the fireplace afterwards.
I love spending time with my family, it really is the best part of the holidays. I hope you all made it home and are enjoying some down time and celebrating with the ones you love most.
Thanks for Stopping by and have a Very Merry Christmas and the Happiest New Year!!
