So I had overestimated the time it would require to see the Badlands, the Wall Drug, the Jewel cave, drive the wildlife loop at the Custer state park, and had a major part of 3 hours left for the sun still to set, advantages of a June summer day starting at 5 am and ending at almost 10 pm.
I had it all planned to drive along the iron mountain road and call it a day but the super friendly Ranger at the Custer state park visitor center suggested me to do the needles highway instead for the evening, and leave the iron mountain road for the next day instead, which was supposed to be rainy. With slight apprehension I gave the suggestion a go, as she had to obviously be the better judge of the place. And what a great drive it turned out to be, the golden hour light added a glistening shine to the stunning stretch of around 20 mile road in the black hills starting from legion lake. You can clearly see why they call it the needles highway, the sharp rocks are along the first 5 miles of it if you start from Lake Sylvan, which itself is a great place to see the sun go down.
A short albeit stunning drive, one of the very best in the country, keep your focus on those hairpins and switchbacks though, and they'll reward you with one of your best,and most technical driving experiences. A big fan of the roads around the black hills of South Dakota here.

Kim and I constantly bounce off ideas one another. The first shot is shown with a matte lip. I had suggested using @smashboxcosmetics lipgloss to the lips to for a “wet” look. Although her concept was to just create, to me, this look inspired the idea of water; Slicked hair, blue glitter, and minimal wardrobe. I am personally drawn to the gloss look. Overall, I think Kim’s skills showcases her talent no matter what she favored as the final look. I love showcasing the creative process. It’s not done till it’s done.

3 days ago I was walking through a beautiful vineyard in Napa Valley, courtesy of the beauty brand I’ve partnered with.
I’m not extraordinary, I’m just a girl with dreams. Of knowing things don’t have to stay status quo, that you can always elevate to meet your dreams rather than lower your dreams to meet your current status.
With added comp plan enhancements and new products rolling out every month this year, we are poised to be the fastest growing social media beauty business ever.
It’s never too late to start. But at this point, why wait?
Only 75 more days!! Can’t wait!

Me after bending down for a minute to catch this puddle reflection - “How do you like my pic ? 🥳”... “It’s nice, but it doesn’t look like this place”... such a classic @flora.gauthier, ha ... last time I came to Chicago it seemed a bit like a dead city to me... but I guess it does make a huge difference in which season you come... from nearly empty, rainy & windy streets to awesome river walks, clean (!!! ... ouch, NYC) pavements and sooo much space... #OnlyInChicago ... and... btw... #NoFilter 😎...
Day77: As the peonies fade, the Asiatic lilies begin blooming #injoesgarden . The lily has long been known as a symbol of life, creativity and good luck. Each color has its own special significance also, and these bright orange beauties represent energy, creativity and passion. The beauty of the orange ones really take your breath away...you spot them a block away as you’re driving down the street. They are striking, amongst the greens and pinks and reds in the garden. He has also planted brilliant yellow lilies and several deep reds, all equally breathtaking in their own way. These lilies are a relatively easy to grow plant that, once its bulb puts its roots down, spread and grow from year to year. We love them because they produce the biggest, most beautiful blooms after the worst winters....and this year, they are stunning. Because of their hardiness...and their show stopping color, you’ll find these lilies in many Nebraska gardens. .
Starting #the100dayproject , determined to find #100midwestclicks to show the world why #Nebraska might not be for everyone, but is just right for me!

Hello everyone! It’s about time we make a short introductory post, and share a bit about some of the changes coming to the Q! We’ve been closed since April 28th, and have been hard at work cleaning, renovating, and refurbishing. You’re probably wondering who “we” is, or when we will open! The new team is Eric Michels (owner), Tahmyrah Lytle (owner/operator), and Stephanie Zick (kitchen manager/head chef). We are hoping to open in mid-July, pending some serious renovation projects. We want to make sure that when we open, we are operating at Suzie Q’s full potential! This ol’ diner needs some TLC but we will be up and going before you know it, slinging all of your favorites and some new stuff too! Keep your eyes on our Instagram and Facebook for updates. Thanks for being loyal fans! We won’t disappoint! #diner#vintagediner#retrodiner#tinydiner#foodie#goodeats#midwest#instafood#instagood
Summer storms ⛈ After walking out in one the heaviest downpours I’ve ever been in, we watched the stream we had just left rise and increase in power like I’ve never seen before, pushing logs and a park bench downstream. Don’t mess with mother neature, I guess.
