The May issue of Chicago Parent is out on the newsstands this week. So I’ll be posting links to my stories throughout the coming days. As always, my meals, services or admissions at the places I visit are usually comped but the opinions are completely my own.
For Chicago Moms (or kids) looking for a little pampering, I can’t say enough about Rock Candy Salon. I took my niece there last month (funny my sons didn’t want a pedicure) and we spent a fabulous afternoon getting manis and pedis. The owner is really committed to mom-based and local business owners and tries to source her products from other small business owners.

We spent an afternoon being buffed, massaged and polished like Dorothy in the Emerald City. The treatment was so nice my niece later asked me if she could go back and just ask for the manicure without the polish.
