Hi there - thank you for stopping by! My name is Jillian and I started Cornflake Dreams in 2010, as a creative outlet from my 9-5 marketing job. Today, it remains a place where I share stories about my life in Chicago, travels with my husband and my other loves: food, shopping, and yoga.
How do you make your collages for posts? I use Adobe InDesign and Photoshop.
Who is h?! My husband! We met online in 2009 (thank you okay, cupid!) and we have been together ever since. He is my favorite traveling partner (he takes all of the great photos I post) and he makes me laugh every day.
What do you do when you're not blogging? I am Marketing Communications Specialist at a law firm -- I design the firm's marketing collateral and manage the website and social media accounts (yes, attorneys tweet!)
What are your favorite places to shop online? Piperlime (for shoes), Bauble Bar (for jewelry), Gap, Jcrew, Nordstrom (for clothes), Sephora (makeup) and West Elm (for furniture).
What is your favorite travel destination? Santorini, Greece and Barcelona, Spain - they are both beautiful places with beaches and tasty food.
What are your favorite foods? Feta cheese with warm pita bread, tomatoes, and parsley; mexican food...guac + cilantro on everything; peanut butter with milk chocolate; pumpkin pie; lemon and blueberries, pineapples, carrot cake (with cream cheese frosting + walnuts + raisins); flaky croissants; and sandwiches.
Do you advertise or work with companies? Yes! I offer a limited number of advertising spaces on Cornflake Dreams. I also collaborate with select companies that I love, to do product reviews and giveaways for readers.
