Girls Night Out / Weekend Recap

On Friday night, I attended a Girls Night Out event hosted by Shecky's.  It took place at Union Station, here in Chicago.  Tickets were purchased online on Shecky's website and all you had to do was show up with an I.D. and you were given a wristband.  The event provided free goodies and drinks, so you had to be 21 to enter.  There were several vendors to buy items from, such as fashion designers showcasing their clothing line, homemade soy candles and jewelry.  I attended the event with some of my girlfriends and we had a blast (the unlimited drinks played a part as well). 

Make sure you check out Shecky's website to see if there will be a Girls Night Out event in your city!

On Sunday I was on the north side of Chicago with my boyfriend after church and we came across this bakery.  Both of us have a huge sweet tooth, so we decided to go check it out. When we walked in, we were greeted by the aroma of fresh baked cakes and cookies and as well as the owner Sharon Nathan.  Sharon is the owner, but she's a chef as well.  Everything is just as delicious as it looks!

Sweet Sensations Pastry offers a wide variety of fresh baked cookies, scones, cupcakes, cake balls, pies and brownies.  They also offer Vegan options as well.  So decided to try the Salted Caramel Cupcake and the Cookies n Cream Cake Ball.  So, long story short, I will be visiting Sweet Sensations Pastry again in the very near future!

If you are in the Chicago area please go check out Sharon and her bakery!
