Favourites Friday #75: Prepping for Summer

Links on this page may lead to compensation for blogger.

After a long and miserable winter here in Portland, we’re finally starting to see some sun for more than a few hours. Which is fantastic, considering that the first day of summer is in a month.


To celebrate, I’ve been starting my prep for what products will be my go-to for the hottest months. Between waterfront festivals, patio dinners with friends, and lazy Saturdays in the park, it’s important to look my best and feel comfortable no matter what the heat says.Read More

Inside Wizard Con

Oh my goodness do we have a lot to talk about.

On Saturday, my super awesome, totally great friend Miranda and I attended Wizard World Comic Con in Portland.


We came because Matt Smith (otherwise known as the Eleventh Doctor on Doctor Who) was making an appearance in one of the panels and Miranda needed to see him.

Both of us were Comic Con virgins, and so in the weeks leading up we were both a little nervous in what it would entail. But beside that, I think we both lived up to our true CC potentials.Read More

I Love Family Trips


It’s the end of summer and everyone is returning from holiday to get ready for fall. But if you live in my house, it means vacation season is just starting.
We don’t go anywhere during the summer because it’s my dad’s busiest time of the year. He’s a golf professional. But at the end of the August my dad does some traveling and the family gets to tag along.
Our first trip this year is to Portland, Oregon. I really love Portland. Downtown Portland to be exact. The Indie/Hipster feel of the whole place is really appealing to me. The people are fascinating (since they’re big city people and I’m a small town girl.) And the opportunities are amazing. So many of the artists I love come here to Portland to perform. Ellie Goulding was here only a few months ago.
Taking these trips with my family is fun because we’re bonding. We’re spending time I would otherwise be using at back-to-school parties as time becoming a closer family. Sure, Dad’s working, but we go visit him and we have breakfast and dinner with him.
The base of my point is to value the time you spend with your family. “Friends come and go, but family is forever” as the saying goes.
More on my Portland trip is to come!
