I have always wanted to visit Malibu, since I was a teenager. I finally made It there, this past June. It was everything I've seen in pictures and more!  Malibu  is just 3o minutes west of Los Angeles. The city is known as "21 Miles of Scenic Beauty. It is situated along the Pacific coast highway, a long stretch of dreamy beach scenery.

Pt. Ruston: Visit Tacoma's Trendiest New Neighborhood

Happy Wednesday!

One of  the best parts of exploring the Northwest, is checking out new areas that are close to home. Last summer I was reading  a local magazine, and saw Point Ruston. It's the trendiest, up and coming neighborhood in Tacoma.

I didn't waste any time making a visit. When I went, the community was just in the beginning stages. Since then, a lot of construction has taken place.The area is booming with new eateries, shops and condos. It is just so beautiful!
Point Ruston is in North Tacoma, and located down on the waterfront. It is my new and fav GO TO spot, I absolutely love it! We've had one of the warmest summers ever and so I spent many hours outside, hanging out here. 

There are so many reasons why you should visit, but I narrowed it to a few - you will just have to go check it out for yourself!

PARADISE VIEWS OF MT. RAINIER

I've lived in the Seattle area for 30 years, and have taken in many views of Rainier from around the area. In my opinion, this is the spot to see the stunning mountain scene.

Of course : we all know it rains cats and dogs in Seattle, ha,  so your window of opportunity to get a clear view is limited. This month is still a great time to catch it.

What to Wear to a Late Summer Wedding



Hello Pretties!

It's the end of summer, which means several love birds have taken advantage of the good weather and already tied the knot. I'm sure there are more weddings planned for September and beyond. I don't usually write  about weddings, but thought it'd be fun to share what I wore.

Grand Opening Of Thrift Culture In Belleuve WA: Look Good-Do Good

* This post is in collaboration with  Bellevue Life Spring. I was given a merchandise credit to shop in the store in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

Happy Midweek Friends,

Last Wednesday I was invited to preview the grand reopening of Bellevue Life Spring's thrift store:
" Thrift Culture " at Bellevue Square.  I was really excited to attend this event, and to hear about the mission of this awesome organization, that gives back all proceeds to the community.

A Culture of Giving 

The Lifespring thrift store, was formerly located on the 1st floor of the Bellevue Square Mall.  It has been a mainstay in the community for several decades, and a hub for giving to help less fortunate
children in the area. The named was changed to reflect  the culture of of giving and neighbors helping each other.
