Brr, It’s Cold in Here!
After landing in Chicago on Friday, Tyler was surprised by the frigid temperatures and blustery wind. So, he stopped by Lululemon to to pick up some warmer clothes: Fast and Free shorts, an Outdoor Enthusiast Beanie, Zone In Long Sleeve shirt and the Surge Light Tight.
Tyler and his pal from The Bachelorette, Dustin Kendrick, stopped by the restaurant inside the Lululemon store to fuel up with smoothies. Tyler got the March to your own beet (beet smoothie): red beet juice, pomegranate powder, apple, orange juice, pomegranate juice, fennel pollen, chia seeds. Dustin got the chocolate-covered bacon (old smoke house bacon with a dark chocolate glaze) and a ginger kombucha.

Touring the Town
The group stopped by Chicago artist Hebru Brantley‘s Nevermore Park, an interactive art installation which officially opens Oct. 24.
To make sure they were fully hydrated, the pals hit up IVme Wellness + Performance for a vitamin drip. Tyler, Dustin and Matteo all got the Athletic Performance IV, a $189 treatment that “delivers a combination of vitamins and fluids to hydrate, reduce inflammation, increase muscle recovery and boost your immune system. The package also includes a B12 shot which sustains the benefits of the IV while also improving your energy, mood, and sleep,” according to the company.
