Portraits of Chicago

VoyageChicago is all about supporting creatives and risk takers – from makeup artists, fashion designers and music producers to chefs, entrepreneurs and more.  In our Portraits series we try to celebrate their work by sharing some of our favorite shots we’ve come across.  We’ve share shots from all around Chicago below.

The Revolution (part 1). Coming at you sassy and real with the visual treatment I created w/ my mate and fellow #feminist @pablo_gordy. The Revolution (Lost at the Bazaar Keep) emobodies that spirit of rebellion we all muster up in our pursuit of freedom, in whatever form it might manifest itself. Initially inspired by the famous image of Liberty Leading People, (by Eugene Delacroix), a woman personifying the concept of the Goddess of Liberty, leading fiercely & without hesitation, undefined by fear, emboldened only by her own vision of Freedom —> Let's keep supporting and lifting each other up, tribe! Happy International Women's Day! xo, your biggest fan, N 💓 (Video link in bio) .

There is one day in whole year which makes my heart beats faster. The day when I feel more free, prouder and stronger to be a woman. They say that ladies are ‘weaker sex’ and I really don’t understand it. Maybe physically we are weaker but in everything else we are equal as men. In this special day I hope all of us will open the eyes, get a bit more confidence and start go for their dreams. It is not true, you can not get good job in men’s world because there is not a space for you at the table. Most my jobs were in men’s environment (what means …sometimes I was the only lady in whole building). And I handled it. I learnt so much skills which were not with me naturally. But it didn’t mean I couldn’t get promoted because I’m a woman. It is bullshit! (excuse me for language) What does it mean for myself to be a women? To have a superpower of giving a birth (I believe it brings special connection between kids and mom), to be able to handle stress better (yes yes, we are slightly better in that then guys), to have possibility to say ‘I don’t have anything in my wardrobe’ and go shopping without excuses. But to be honest it is a feeling of pride, walking with my head up, being proud of my body, health and achievements. Not being afraid or scared of going for my dreams. The main key is: WHAT YOU REALLY THINK ABOUT YOURSELF. It will brings you new opportunities of sitting at the table, achieving your goals or walking with pride of who you are. I taught myself feeling and think good about myself few years ago and today I make a decision about my life and future, living proactive, not reactive, simply being in control – and this is my women’s power! What is yours? To all (around 10 000 ladies here) all the best! Celebrate today! —————————— #internationalladiesday #ladiesday #flowers #woman #womensday #entrepreneur #girlspower #girlboss #herstoryourstory #roses #confidence #beproud #bestrong #behappy #celebrate #businessinheels #chicagoentrepreneurs #losangelesentrepreneur #selflove #bosswoman #womenwhohustle #womenceo #womenempoweringwomen #womeninspiringwomen

Sometimes I forget what it’s like to be a beginner. Perfectionism is my life lesson. So I tend to get really good at something – and then I stay out of comfort. . I can admit that to myself. . I am a total beginner with yoga. And it’s hard. And there are days I don’t want to practice. . But just like anything else in life, I know to move through resistance and that the process is EVERYTHING. . And THAT ultimately is the determining factor between those who will change and those who won’t. . Do you enjoy the process? . . . . . . . . #howtoloseweight #beginneryoga #beginneryogini #yogabeginners #wellnesstribe #wellnesstips #healthylifestyletips #healthylifestyleclub #muscletesting #adrenalfatigue #perfectionism #recoveringperfectionist #perfectionistproblems #perfectiondoesntexist #aligned #hustlesmart #healthyhabitspayoff #healthhabits #nourishmentforthesoul #nourishyourlife #nourishyourbody #nourishmentnotnumbers #nourished #busywomen #stressaddict #stresseating

I was going to try and do a shoulder workout today, but I was just so exhausted from the week that I decided to take the day off and rest as best I could. We’ll see how I feel tomorrow; just play it by ear. Listening to my body has been the greatest lesson of this whole experience; that and patience. Keeping my diet very clean, switching to a ketogenic diet, and doing intermittent fasting on some days has helped me to lose a lot of fat so far. It’s in a healthy way and I’m not starving; it’s fantastic! Even some of my definition is starting to come back. I’m very happy with the progress I am making. If you want to make this kind of progress I can help you with custom workout and meal plans. And right now I’m having a 10% off sale for St. Patrick’s Day!

Hey there happy Friday! It’s been awhile since we did a #fridayintroductions so it’s time to bring it back 👋🏼 We’re Daniel and Jennifer and we’ve been lucky enough to be hubs and wifey for the past year and half 🤵🏻👰🏻 We love Jesus, our fam, Chicago and cheese 🧀 We started Everyday Urban right after we got married but it wasn’t until this past year we really figured out what we wanted to do with this project. We’re constantly looking for new creative endeavors we can take on together and thought the simplest way to document those adventures together was through this joint account! Just like our beloved city of Chicago, Instagram and the blogging world have their issues. But also just like Chicago, our favorite thing about these spaces is the community ❤️ We’ve loved the deep friendships we’ve built in this city and many of them started with just a simple hello. SO if we haven’t had the opportunity to get to know you yet in this little IG community we’d love it if you’ve said hello because you never know just what might come of it 😊 📸: @lykkevisuals || #LTKmens #liketkit @liketoknow.it http://liketk.it/2uFCH
