So honored to be featured again in the Minneapolis Scout Guide. This year is even more special because Ava made the spread too! I am so fortunate to be able to focus on my passions of art, social media and styling while mostly working from home and spending time with my heart-Ava Frances.

The Ultimate Girls Night Out at W Minneapolis- The Foshay


There was no better place to celebrate Katie’s bachelorette party than with the ultimate girls night out event at W Minneapolis- The Foshay.  We kicked the #bridetribe event off  in the Extreme Wow Suite that  wraps around the top of the historic Foshay tower in Downtown Minneapolis. With breathtaking city views it  was the perfect place to gather a group of our closest girlfriends. We started the evening with a lush champagne and dessert bar and beauty treatments by  the ultimate Glamsquad, Rachel Ellen Hair.

After our much needed pampering, we headed to a private tour of  the Foshay Tower Observation Deck located on the top floor of  W Minneapolis.  As the  first skyscraper built in the state of Minnesota, we were brought back in time as we enjoyed the wrap around views from the  Foshay Tower and observation deck.  With breathtaking views, the Foshay tower is the perfect place to take photos and for the bride to be to have her Marilyn Monroe moment.

Next, we headed next to the  27th floor of the Foshay Tower to grab cocktails at one of the best bars in Minneapolis,  Prohibition Bar.  A swanky 1920’s era retreat, we took a moment to catch-up, share memories, wedding wishes and toast the bride to be.  We headed next to the the chic Living Room Bar  located in the lobby of the W Minneapolis where we chatted, laughed and danced the night away.  All while enjoying the cities best champagne cocktail- the Epiphany. It was the perfect ending of a beautiful night. I can safely say that our #bridetribe night out at W Minneapolis- The Foshay was the perfect way to spend Katie’s last few days before she became a married woman.
