Trump Hotel Chicago

Sometimes, a girl just needs to be pampered...which is why I get giddy like a school girl when I get to stay at the Trump Hotel Chicago. Half of my sales team sits in our Chicago office, so when I visit, I'm able to stay at the Trump which is walking distance from our office.

I appreciate good customer service and experience, and consistently, the Trump Chicago has exceeded my expectations. Here's what I love about this hotel...
  • They get to know you...when you fill out a profile as a Trump Card Privileges member (free to join), they truly honor your special needs. Favorite magazine, snacks, etc. I specified that I eat healthy and came back to my hotel room one night with a full on exotic fruit spread. It was amazing.
  • Each room has a Nespresso machine with both regular and decaf options.
  • Turn down service is on point. Bottles of water are left behind for at night slippers are placed by your bed.
  • They leave behind a note card each day with the weather for the next day. Super helpful.
  • The gym is amazing. Amazing view, large amount of cardio and weight machines, and the locker room is like a spa. They even have takeaway mini booklets with different workout programs, depending on what your goal is.
  • They have their own line of amenities that smell great. We were lucky enough to stay in a spa room one stay and got bonus bath and body products, body scrub and body butters...
  • The bathroom mirror has a TV in it...enough said.
  • Extremely comfortable beds
The Trump realizes that they get a lot of work travelers, so they do their best to make you feel comfortable, pampered and at home. If you're in a city where there's a Trump, I definitely encourage you to splurge. It's a celebratory type of hotel.

Friday Favorites


I’m always on the hunt for travel size beauty products. I rarely check my bag when traveling for work so I have to make sure that everything I bring is under 3.4oz. I recently received a sample from L’Occitane Eaux de Colognes new line and I’m obsessed with the scents. And I’m in luck, they also come in a travel friendly size!

I have Ravissante & Captivante and love them both.  Captivante is a light, fresh every day scent. The bottle is huge, but looks really pretty on my bathroom vanity. Kind of like décor. 

I seriously love my new phone. The Samsung Galaxy 4 has the best camera! It kept my niece and nephew entertained during an hour long car rid. They loved putting 'stickers' on pictures of themselves.

 Palmer's Cocoa Butter (added bonus, SPF 15)...need I say more?

Love me some Nordstrom Rack. The one in Lake Orion, MI was very organized and clean. I scored  these Me Too flashy flats. Can't wait to sport them in the fall!

Week in Chicago

I’m in Chicago this week for work. Any fun beauty events going on in the city I should know about?

5 things I’m loving about Chicago right now:
1) The weather is beautiful…73 degrees!
2) I’m staying at the Amalfi hotel, which is connected to my building, making my morning commute a 5 minute walk indoors instead of 30 minute car ride.
3) Walking to Forever 21 with my teammates. Nothing says team bonding like a shopping trip!
4) Comfy hotel beds and not having to make them in the morning. 
4) Aveda mini toiletries. Rosemary Mint is the best!
