Spa Day Chicago

Spa Day Chicago

I don’t often get to treat myself, but I fully understand the importance to do so (and you should too!).  Today I treated myself to a Spa Day.  My very good friend, Amber (you may know her as the mom of adorable Manny the Frenchie), and I made appointments to get pampered at the Mario Tricoci Spa on Michigan Avenue a few weeks ago and today was the day.  I had been so looking forward to this!  Amber picked me…

Worldly Recipes: Lasagna

Worldly Recipes: Lasagna

Welcome to Worldly Recipes, a new segment of RebeccaWanderlusting where I explore my love for cooking!  I’ve always loved working with food, and since I have a degree in Culinary Arts, technically I know what I’m doing.  However, sometimes my ideas in the kitchen fall flat as a pancakes (just like the pineapple upside down cake I made for my sister’s birthday!)  Since we’ve moved into this new apartment (back in April, 2015), I’ve been cooking more and more, so…

Frontier Airlines: A Review

Frontier Airlines: A Review

I booked our flight to San Francisco through Frontier Airlines, because….well, because it was cheap.  All told, it was $160 round trip for each of us, which is a pretty good deal.  I’ve flown with them once before and had a not so great experience, so this time I wanted to document the flight and see whether the great price is really worth the trouble.  The last time I flew Frontier, it was to Salt Lake City in November 2014. …
