So recently I fell in love with Chicago. I visited for the weekend in February for a much-needed break. The city had a buzz that reminded me so much of London. We were only there for two nights but managed to do so many fun things like a gangster bus tour, visit a huge sweet shop and walk around the Chicago Field Museum.

Our hotel had maybe the most beautiful lobby I’ve ever seen. The ceiling was stunning and atmospheric, the only downside was the fact it was opposite Hamilton Chicago and it’s impossible to get tickets, impossible! The weather was freezing and we got caught in a slushy snowstorm where my hair practically froze. Nevertheless, I tried a proper Chicago deep dish pizza at its birthplace which was delicious.

This was the view from the 94th floor of the John Hancock building where we met up with some family friends. Not very long after these photos were taken came a thick snow cloud which completely ruined the view. Chicago was a different world when we came down with an icy wind and so much snow!

The city at night is such a great place to be, especially when there is a two-floored Urban Outfitters store and sushi, I mean what more do you need?

Earlier that day I also went to the most insane sweet shop you will ever see. As close to Willy Wonka’s as you can get in reality. They had every type of sweet imaginable, gummy bears of every size shape and colour, Harry Potter candy, all sorts from all over the world and more. Basically two floors of pure sugar.
