Makeup Memories B

I became attached to Bobbi Brown cosmetics before I had my first boyfriend, went to my first prom, or even entered high school. You could say Bobbi has accompanied me on many firsts:) And today I’m still turning to her trusty products. I saw an ad with the below Bobbi Babe back when I was about… View Post »

Say No to Being Sidelined

Recently, I went salsa dancing for the third time and it was mega fun. For those of you who’ve never been to a salsa club, it’s much different than a regular club. Everything is partner-based, and people constantly switch partners as guys ask girls to dance. Bold women do blaze the trail and ask men,… View Post »

Bellevue Farmers Market

Some people think that only mega stars with their armies of stylists can be mega beautiful. But I say, not so! Anyone with a positive outlook and a healthy lifestyle is radiant.

Milly A

Okay Fashion Friends, a while back I stopped counting the amount of Milly dresses I’ve worn on this site. Can that fashionista help it if her creations are so covetous?!

Toronto A

I just emailed Steve, director of the Toronto Independent Film Festival, famously known as “a headline event for micro and no-budget films” running in tandem with TIFF. We became friends when I attended the festivals last year. I passed on my wish to clone myself so I could cover my responsibilities state-side and still hop… View Post »

Garden K

I’m ignoring the fact that this morning I detected a hint of gloomy skies. I’m making the most of every last ray of summer sunshine! Before the summer flowers began to fade, I got to attend a garden party for everyone who volunteered at the Pacific Northwest Flower & Garden Show. I’ve been fascinated by… View Post »
