I took a quick trip to Victoria, B.C. the weekend before last and I needed some comfy travel style to get me through the trip. We left at 8 am on Saturday and started sightseeing immediately upon arrival. Since we were sitting for about three hours, I needed something that would let me relax but also wouldn’t make me look like a total slob when we landed.
This is the look I decided on: a lot of lounge with a little bit of class.
I’m going to Victoria, B.C. this weekend and am super bummed because I’m missing some great events. One of the best foodie events of the year is happening this weekend. Two of my favorite Seattle bloggers are hosting a popup. My favorite craft fair opened up a permanent storefront.
Luckily, me missing these events doesn’t mean you have to. Here are the three best events going on this weekend in Seattle.
I’m embarrassed to admit this, but I lived with a bare balcony for two years. I only started slowly creating my balcony’s urban garden last year. I started with an outdoor rug and Adirondack chair. Then I tested growing basil, mint, and thyme on a covered balcony with little direct sunlight (which met with varied success).
Though small, my investments made me realize just how rejuvenating it is to sit on your balcony during a Seattle summer. Now that the blooms are budding and the weather is getting warmer, I’m itching to finish what I started and create the urban garden oasis I’ve been envisioning for a few years. Read on for my plans and the items I need to make it happen.
What I love about the events going on this weekend in Seattle is that they celebrate some of the best-but-less-talked-about neighborhoods in the city. Get out and explore SODO, Georgetown, and Rainier Valley in the best way there is: through the eyes of local restaurants and businesses in the area.
We all sigh at a good love story. But what really gets our hearts racing is when a couple builds each other up and supports the other’s talents. And if it ends in a success story – the best happily ever after there is – we can’t help but turn into a puddle of feels.
I have that kind of story for you today. It’s the tale of an artist and how her boyfriend spotted an opportunity to turn her passion into a business. You’ll learn how a Seattle-based lifestyle brand was born and witness just how much its founders still admire each other…even after going in business together.
