Whenever I come across something cool and unique, I have to share it with you guys…but even better when this cool and unique thing is MADE in Chicago! Let me introduce you to State Optical and its owner (this month’s CCF Loves!) Scott Shapiro.
How it’s taken me so long to have one of my favorite people in all of Chicago as a CCF Loves feature is beyond me…but I guess I have to build up some anticipation, right? She was a foodie before the term foodie was even a thing — say hello to Amanda Puck!
This month’s CCF Loves is making an old school favorite cool and modern AND doing it right here in Chicago (duh). Bridget McDermott of 84Rockwell is the creator of your new favorite handbag (which actually requires no hands at all) and making happen right here in the greatest city on earth!
When it comes to health and wellness, I’d rather take a bunch of herbs I can’t pronounce rather than a plethora of pills I can’t pronounce. And if you feel the same way, you’re going to be very interested in my latest CCF Loves — acupuncturist / herbalist / beauty entrepreneur, Giselle Wasfie, L.Ac.
If you love supporting local and discovering cool brands while doing so, then you’re going to love this month’s CCF Loves (I realize, that’s a lot of love)…Dose Market founder, April Francis.
