Hi Friends,

My name is Lainey, I’m 20 years old, and I want you to feel like a local in my favorite city, Chicago! Wherever you are (city, suburbs, and beyond) I hope you fall in love with Chicago, our culture, and hidden gems. Don’t worry I’ll talk about touristy spots too, but I’m not afraid to spill some tea about my local favorites! If you love city-living, photography, and trends then welcome home! Every Wednesday I’ll keep you in the “Loop” about what I did on the weekend and hot spots in the city. Follow my journey by subscribing to my blog and Instagram @lainey_hcb.
