We'd be hard-pressed to find someone who isn't obsessed with avocados, but what most of us don't realize is that the ingredient can make so much more than just guacamole. Head to Mercadito this week for its Ode To The Avocado event, where you'll learn to whip up tons of Mexican delicacies. (Mercadito)

Memorial Day weekend is coming up fast, so it's high time to get yourself in gear for the first of (hopefully many!) summer trips. But, instead of jamming every maxi-dress you own into an overstuffed suitcase, take a couple tips from the pros on paring down your load. (Cheeky Chicago)
We love reading tales of inspiring local ladies, and Emily Hard's journey to become Glossed & Found's editor and producer certainly struck a chord. Read about her career path, her musings on fashion and beauty, and the advice she's giving to her 23-year-old self. (The Everygirl)
Get ready for today's "awww" moment — local shelter Project Rescue Chicago is known for taking in abused pups from all over the country, but now it's turning up the cute factor and naming the furry friends after the Chicago Blackhawks roster. Cue the tears.(Redeye Chicago)
Here's a bit of reassuring news: Even the city's chicest style bloggers can have off days, wardrobe-wise. Read this hilarious tale of leather pants gone wrong, and feel a little better about your own mistakes. (Chi City Fashion)
