TOYS  I like wood toys. I’ve bought many from Hadley (1205 W. Webster Ave.; 773-883-0077) and from Building Blocks Toy Store (3306 N. Lincoln Ave., 773-525-6200; 2130 W. Division St., 773-235-1888), a great store with a huge stock. And I’ve picked up a few toys from Galt Toys + Galt Baby (900 N. Michigan Ave., 312-440-9550; also in Northbrook). CHILDREN’S FURNITURE  I’ve bought our cribs and changing tables from Grow (1943 W. Division St.; 773-489-0009). KIDS’ CLOTHING  There’s a website I love called MAKIÉ (makieclothier.com). They have beautiful boys’ clothing. WOMEN’S CLOTHING  Even when Hejfina was open, anything that I didn’t get from there came from Blake (212 W. Chicago Ave.; 312-202-0047). Online, I also shop lagarconne.com. JEWELRY  I’m a big fan of the selection at Barneys New York (15 E. Oak St.; 312-587-1700) and at Ikram (873 N. Rush St.; 312-587-1000). ART  I love abstract art, mostly contemporary. I’ve purchased art locally from the Shane Campbell Gallery (1431 W. Chicago Ave.; 312-226-2223) and Wright (1440 W. Hubbard St.; 312-563-0020). FACIALS  Karen Brody (1579 N. Milwaukee Ave.; 773-368-5567) has a holistic treatment based on Indian ashtanga pressure points and lymphatic draining. She is a master of eyebrows as well. MANICURES & PEDICURES  I go to a place called Cozy Nails (2735 N. Lincoln Ave.; 773-388-8810). It’s a neighborhood place, but it has an amazing spa pedicure. If I want to do something really luxurious with a friend, the Peninsula Spa (108 E. Superior St.; 312-337-2888) is amazing.
