This week we’re crushing on Saks new Chanel Beauté shop, plus NoMI’s hot chocolate bar and Eli’s cheesecake — then we’ll work it all off with the help of Fitness Formula Club’s Year of Wellness.
Escape the chill and give shopped-out soles a rest at the Park Chocolate Bar at NoMi Lounge. Grab a cup of cocoa and mix it with items such as house-made syrups, marshmallows and candy, all created by NoMi pastry chef Meg Galus. $10 per mug. 800 N. Michigan, Hyatt.com/gallery/nomi
Pumpkin spice is so October. This season, tease your tastebuds with Eli’s holiday-flavored cheesecakes, such as white chocolate raspberry and red velvet. Cakes start at $33. Scoop up at Eli’s storefront at 6701 Forest Preserve or order online at Shop.elicheesecake.com.
