Life in Chicago

Hi everyone! welcome back to Etinology.com. First off I would like to say that a couple of friends and I have created an accessories online store, so please visit MichaStore.com. Also I would love to go back to my blog. Thankfully the sun is still out by 6PM, the time I got off of the office, so I may still got time daily to snap my outfit.

These days my life has been around work, pursuing my PMP certification, running MichaStore.com, and also moving to Chicago downtown. I felt really down initially when I moved over from Iowa to Chicago suburbs. My life was pretty much work and stay at home. I got so disappointed many times that I thought of moving to another city to feel less lonely. But with friends and societies around me, I am always out there busy participating in events, so I feel a lot happier these days. I feel so blessed and happy with my decision to stay here.. Especially moving to Chicago downtown, I feel so pumped with the city life - a lot of things to do, friends, and good food!

Street style outfit! My friend actually helped me style this outfit for me for Micha's photoshoot. Anyway readers! Don't judge the city you are living in too quickly! Find a positive society around you, hang out with people who can be your friends, eat good food.. you never know if you will fall in love with the city you are living at!

Love from Chicago~

Micha Store

Hi all - it's spring already here in Chicago.

I feel guilty myself for really stopping myself from blogging lately. I hopped in and out of things, because I really want to do so much stuff and I feel that 24 hours in a day is really not enough. I commit myself to so much things and nowadays I need to literally have to do list everyday to make sure things I want to get done really got done. It's crazy busy, but I don't want to miss the opportunity here... So here is the announcement.

I and a couple of my friends just opened an online accessories store called Micha Store (www.michastore.com). We sell fashionable accessories with affordable price: from big jewelries to small cute ones. Take a look and let us know what you think! Meanwhile I want to share with all of you the looks we create from our products:














Drop by some comments about what you think about the collection :) 
Thanks!

Catherine.

Botanic Sunday

This is part two of the architecture tour by Maria. We went to a botanical garden at Lincoln Park (Zoo). In the beginning, I didn't know what to expect from this botanical garden. I have seen posts from different people showing how nice and special it is inside, but at the beginning I was very disappointed as it looked like any other botanical garden. As we walked in more, we got to see more pretty areas and flowers, so I was not feeling as disappointed. 

I went there with a bunch of friends and it seemed that we spent too much time chatting that we did not get to discover the whole botanical garden (it closes at 5). Even though the building looked small from the front, actually it is pretty spacious inside! I walked a lot, but I did not complete the whole thing. I would recommend visit this place if you have any spare time and you would like to relax!

Overall we had a lot of fun! It is starting to be warmer here in Chicago, hopefully we can tour more scenic places in Chicago even outdoor! Let me know what you think and any suggestion as to places you would like me to cover around the Chicago area!

See you next time.
