travel, travelblogger, WAState, Pugetsound, Northwest, Poulsbo



Hello friends,

Over the next few weeks in my travel posts- I am featuring a series on small towns in the Puget Sound . The west sound area of Seattle has some of the most beautiful scenery and small town gems.  Even though I get tired of the rain and overcast skies, there is just nothing like Northwest summers.

If you have never explored or visited Kitsap county, then do hurry over and check out some of the breathtaking scenery before summer ends!  The Kitsap Peninsula is home to several scenic towns and landscapes.

If you've never seen the Canadian Rockies, you must put it on your bucket list! Here you will find some of the most beautiful landscape in the world. People come from all over the globe, every season of the year- to explore and enjoy this wilderness paradise.

All the elements of heaven surround Banff National Park in Alberta. I was born just a few hours from here in Medicine Hat. I was raised  in Vancouver, and have drove through here many times. This time I was able to stop and look around more. This is by far some of the most stunning scenery I have ever seen in my life!

Top 3 Beaches in Southern California

Every time I talk about a CA beach I get just a bit excited!  Last month I was able to visit 5 different beaches between Los Angeles and San Diego. I could totally live the beach bum life! I always get sad when I have to leave these spots of paradise behind.

There are so many awesome beaches in southern California,  it would take several weeks to check them all out. Of the 3 beaches I am featuring- Venice was the only one I had not been to before.  They all have many things in common, but at the same time each one is so unique.

If  you love the beach and are making a trip to CA anytime soon these are :

3 Beaches You Must See in Southern California

 Have you ever heard of a designer making 3 dresses in 11 minutes?!? Well it's hard to believe, but I saw it right before my very eyes! A few weeks ago I was at a Networking event in preparation for Seattle Fashion Week.

A the event, I saw Sir. Leaf Latif the Afro fashion designer performing a live clothing construction performance. This model is wearing one of the 3 designs made that night.

It has been quite toasty in my  Pacific Northwest corner of the world. Whose complaining ?! Not this girl,  I love heat! Well to a point, I did complain  a few weeks ago when I was visiting the southwest city of Palm Springs.
