Chicago: A City With Something For Everyone...


Chicago is one of our favorite cities. It always feels like a home away from home, and you always leave wanting more but you are satisfied at the same time. There is literally something for everyone. You can visit fabulous restaurants, stay at gorgeous hotels, enjoy world-class museums or their fabulous aquarium, be entertained by spectacular animals at the Lincoln Park Zoo, go to a basketball, football or baseball game, do some intense shopping, and go to fantastic shows at the theater. Or, if you're more of a fitness enthusiast you can go for a jog in their wonderful parks, join in on a volleyball game, or grab a bike and sightsee while getting exercise. You can grab a Segway and tour parts of the city, hang out at the beach on Lake Michigan, take an Architecture tour on the river, or just chill and have a drink. There's something for every taste, and budget! Make sure Chicago is on your list of places to visit this year!

Beaver Creek, Colorado: Paradise In Snow...

We have always spent winter vacations (skiing, snowboarding, tubing) on the East Coast. Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont, and New York. They were all fabulous in their own ways. We kept hearing about Colorado and how incredible the skiing was there. Deciding where to spend your cherished winter vacation week each year is an important decision so, after doing lots of research and asking lots of questions, the Beaver Creek seemed to hit the nail on the head for our taste. Nothing prepared us for the stunning and mindblowing scenery that we were about to embark on. From the drive out of Denver through spectacular mountains to our destination, Beaver Creek, our eyes never left the windows because there was always something beautiful to look at. It was everything we had hoped it would be and so much more. It's going to be pretty difficult to go back to the tiny ski resorts and short runs on the East Coast, that's for sure!

Iceland: The Spectacular Land Of Fire And Ice...


After returning from my trip to Iceland, and talking to people about it, the first thing I am usually asked is “I've heard nothing but great things, and I have always wanted to go. Should I?” My response is always, "I would recommend this country to anyone and everyone. It was the most naturally-beautiful location I have ever been to." The best way to describe it is “other-worldly." From the landscapes that change every 30 minutes as you are driving, to the gorgeous, smaller towns, to the black sand beaches, glaciers, ice caves, volcanoes, lava tubes, spectacular waterfalls, and majestic mountains, you know you are somewhere pretty special. Pair it with the fact that the people of Iceland are the most authentically wholesome people I have been around, and you have what is perfection.

CityPASS: A Fun, Simple, Cost-Effective Option To See The Best Attractions In Your Favorite Cities...

CityPASS.

If you were going to purchase only one attraction package, this is the one to get. This is the very essence of why they do what they do.

When Mike Gallagher and Mike Morey started CityPASS in 1997, they knew they didn’t want to offer just another discounted attraction ticket—they wanted to offer more. They wanted to create a product that would not only save money, but also save time, while offering a rich, memorable experience at several attractions, not just one. And out of this partnership between two guys who’d spent much of their respective careers working at, with, or around attractions, CityPASS was born.

To help create the experience they envisioned, they hand-picked the very best attractions in the very best cities across North America, with a savings of up to half off the price of separate admission. They purposely designed CityPASS to include a limited number of the most popular attractions, assuring a great experience that makes the most of every minute, without a ton of research needed.

At CityPASS, they think your time at the attraction—whether it’s an aquarium, observatory, theme park or museum—allows you to get connected to the people you’re traveling with, as well as to history or art or nature. By design, CityPASS gives you ample time—9 days—to enjoy a destination, eliminating the need to rush frantically from attraction to attraction to get your money’s worth.

Designed for the FIT, CityPASS ticket booklets contain prepaid, discounted admission — up to 50% off regular combined prices — to the most popular attractions in 12 North American destinations: New York City, San Francisco, Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Philadelphia, Seattle, Tampa Bay, Toronto and Southern California. CityPASS saves time allowing booklet holders to skip most main-entrance ticket lines. Plus, CityPASS booklets are valid for 9 consecutive days beginning with the first day of use.

They really do want you to “leave with more than you came with”—whether that’s more money to spend on other parts of your vacation (or to save), more time to spend with the people you’re traveling with (or yourself), an enriched vacation experience, or some combination of all of those things. The concept remains as vital and relevant today as it did back then, as they recognize the increasing value that experiences bring to all of our lives.

Twenty years later and still family-owned and operated, CityPASS now has 12 cities and 78 attractions, has sold 17 million CityPASS ticket books, and has a customer recommendation rating of 98%. “Leave with more than you came with” is firmly entrenched in the minds of the now 45 amazing staff that work for the company, headquartered in the small mountain town of Victor, Idaho, on the west slope of the Teton Mountains.

Anastasia Beverly Hills: The Best Eyebrow and Contour Kits Available!

Global cosmetics brand Anastasia Beverly Hills was founded in 1997 by Romanian-born beauty entrepreneur Anastasia Soare. Rooted in the science of sacred geometry, the company formulates, manufactures, and markets prestige cosmetics for a passionately informed “prosumer” audience. Dubbed the “people’s make-up brand,” ABH has cultivated an industry-unique relationship with its core customer, focused on product education and responsiveness in delivering the “ultimate polished look” for which the brand is known.

ABH Founder and CEO Anastasia Soare was first to introduce “brow-shaping” to salons in the US based on her patented “Golden Ratio” method. She is widely credited for fueling the multimillion-dollar business that now surrounds the category. Popularized through Soare’s customer relationships with many of the world’s most recognizable faces—Oprah, Naomi Campbell, Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez, Heidi Klum, Victoria Beckham, and Penelope Cruz, to name a few—the “brow revolution” she ignited has become a landmark contribution to beauty history.

ABH’s trailblazing legacy continues with expansion beyond brow products and services. In 2014, the company broke from tradition to debut its new category of professional make-up direct-to-consumer in a “promote to inspire” social media campaign, cultivating a staggeringly successful relationship with influencers in the digital sphere. ABH has since received industry-wide recognition for digital innovation and numerous accolades for cutting-edge product trends such as the category first Contour Palette and cult classic Liquid Lipstick.

ABH cosmetics are available at anastasiabeverlyhills.com, Sephora, Macy’s, ULTA, Nordstrom, Dillard’s, and select retailers in over 25 countries including Saudi Arabia, Australia, Sweden, Romania and France. ABH is committed to the highest standards in product testing, formulation, new product development, and meeting the demands of its uniquely engaged customer.
