A #ManiMonday Tip for Autumn!

In celebration with the first #ManiMonday of the fall season, we’re bringing you a helpful tip from NoMI Spa supervisor and esthetician, Molly Lahood.  As the seasons change and the air gets drier, its important to think about the nourishment of your skin, including the cuticles around your nails.

Molly’s go-to season-changing manicure tip:

 “Keep your hands and nails looking polished this fall with the help of our favorite Deborah Lippmann miracle workers!  Cuticles are the protectors of your nails and fingers, but they also can make your nails look un-manicured if not taken care of.  We recommend indulging in the Deborah Lippmann Cuticle Oil and The Cure cuticle cream to keep your nails in tip top shape!”

  •  Favorite travel destination?

Give me sunshine, a beach, and a good book and I am the happiest person alive, regardless of the destination.

  • Favorite Chicago activity?

It would have to be eating and drinking my way through the city. I still have so many places I want to go!  I love experiencing and enjoying all of the culinary talent that Chicago has to offer.

  • An interesting/unusual fact about yourself

It may sound funny, but leaving the house without earrings is probably one of the only things that gives me true anxiety. I have a pair of gold studs that are my go-to pair!

  • The most interesting aspect of the hotel in your opinion?

I would have to say the team we have. There are so many backgrounds and nationalities represented which has allowed us to create this beautifully diverse service culture. The staff in each area of the hotel are so experienced, knowledgeable, and unique, yet they fit together perfectly to provide consistent and quality service; I truly think it’s remarkable and something that sets us apart as a brand.

  • Which piece of art in the hotel speaks to you, and why?

The Rauschenberg in the main lobby. On a daily basis I have listened to guests, children and NoMI patrons give their opinions on the piece.  Some think it is the best artwork they have ever seen and others are simply confused! It has been eye-opening to discuss this piece daily and watch the reactions; it has definitely opened my mind to its value and the impact it can have on so many people.

Get to NoMI: Savannah Pendergrass

After a beautiful weekend in Chicago, we kick off Monday by introducing you to one of NoMI Garden’s newest bartenders, Savannah Pendergrass!  Savannah recently moved to the Windy City from the sunny coast of California and brought a sunshine attitude along with her.



Favorite Chicago Fall Activity:
I haven’t been here in the fall yet, but I’m ready to finally experience some seasons! In the summer, my favorite thing to do is ride my bike by the lake with my black lab, Charlie, so I’m eager to watch the seasons change from that view.

What’s your favorite item on the NoMI menu?
I love our Frites, they are hand cut and delicious! Also, the Tiger Roll is another favorite, it’s everything that a sushi roll should be: crunchy and fresh.

Something you might not know about her:
I am extremely passionate about the cocktail industry!  I’m attending school to learn more about cocktail consulting, training bartenders, developing spirits and glassware programs, and much more. It’s such an exciting and creative industry to be in and I can’t wait to see what it will bring.  In the meantime, I am so lucky to call NoMI Garden my “office”. It’s the idyllic urban sanctuary.

If she could bring anyone to NoMI, who would it be and why:
I would bring my parents! They haven’t visited yet since I moved from California and I’d love for them to see what I’m accomplishing here.
