Spring Activities

This past weekend, Seattle temperatures soared to 70 degrees, and it seemed like just about everyone was out and about. I sipped coffee and watched seal pups play early one morning at Sculpture Park, walked up to Capitol Hill, and tried to soak up as much sun as possible. Every season, I like to make [...]

Things to Do in Seattle this Spring

things to do in seattle in spring 1

The first day of spring is only a week away, and all of Seattle has been buzzing over it. We got lucky with a few 60+ degree days last weekend, and the entire city was out and about, hiking up trails, brunching on rooftops, and boating around the Puget Sound. I rounded up a list [...]

L.A. Weekend

los angeles weekend 25

Last weekend I went to California to visit a few girlfriends who I lived with in college and still consider among my closest friends to this day. We played on the beach, hiked in the hills, dined at our favorite restaurants, and lounged on the couch, catching up over wine and surplus Valentine's Day chocolates. [...]

One New Thing: Seaplane Ride Over Seattle

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

Sunday morning was quite possibly one of my favorite experiences to date  -- a seaplane ride over the city of Seattle. Early that morning, a few friends and I grabbed brisk-morning coffees and drove north of the city, where we boarded a little yellow seaplane and ventured out into the water. I have to say, [...]

New Seattle Bar: Pennyroyal in Belltown

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

Last night, a few girlfriends and I shared happy hour at Pennyroyal, a new Seattle bar in the brand new Palladian Hotel in Belltown. We talked for hours over a few cocktails and appetizers, then toured a few guest rooms. It's such a unique and creatively designed hotel. We loved the stoic, seemingly hand-painted, gold-framed photos [...]

New York City Minute

Although Seattle is giving NYC a run for its money these days, NYC will always have a piece (slash entire half) of my heart. So I was mesmerized by this video, titled A New York City Minute, Frozen in Time. I love the diversity of each neighborhood; the hustle and bustle of the many different [...]

Winter Activities

Now that the holiday rush is over, I've been thinking about ways to make the most of the remaining (months!) of winter. We've still got until March 20th for the first day of spring, and there are plenty of things to do in Seattle in winter, even without much snow. Until the weather warms up, [...]

Views from New York City Apartments

views from nyc apartments 2

When I lived in New York City, my apartment was a tiny studio walk-up on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. I had two windows; one from my living area that looked directly into a brick wall, and one from my kitchen that looked into a courtyard... a concrete courtyard. The views didn’t exactly make [...]

One New Thing: Sitting at a Bar (Alone)

cocktail bar

Wow, does the title of this post make me sound cool or what, ha. (: A few weekends ago, I was in Scottsdale for work. Typically these trips are filled with colleague or client dinners, but this time I was holding down the fort on my own on a Saturday night. And so, I decided [...]

Autumn Colors

fall green lake park seattle 6

I posted a year ago about my love for Green Lake Park, and hadn’t really anticipated ever posting much on it again. But you guys. I went there the other weekend, and could not *help* but feel overwhelmed by fall in full force. I had a lot on my mind that morning, and as I [...]
