Christmas Bucket List

By on November 24, 2017

christmas, bucket list, seasonal, to-do list, activities, holiday, spirit

I have always loved lists! Check lists, to-do lists, bucket lists… Growing up, I would ask my mom to write my chores down on an list. I would call it my “Amelia Bedelia List”. Amelia Bedelia was a series of children’s books about a housekeeper that I read while growing up. I would go through each chore on the list and check it off until I was done. There is something so satisfying about completing a list!

As the weather starts getting colder, I like to stay warm in festive holiday pajamas and slipper boots! I think it’s a great way of getting into the holiday spirit. I work from home so I’m usually in lounge wear, but with fun pajamas like these I still feel really cute! I love the idea of wearing matching pajamas with your significant other or family on Christmas morning. Maybe I can get Schyler to wear them with me! ;D

Top 10 Things to Do in Edinburgh

By on November 16, 2017

Edinburgh, Scotland, Europe, United Kingdom, bagpiper, bagpipes, travel, wanderlust

On a recent trip to Europe with my sister, we took a train from London to Edinburgh, Scotland. I really wanted to visit Edinburgh because the author J.K. Rowling lived in Edinburgh while she was writing the Harry Potter series and she drew a lot of her inspiration from the city. My sister and I are both obsessed with Harry Potter and we loved visiting the spots that inspired the books. Edinburgh is such a charming, medieval city that makes you feel like you have stepped back in time. Scotland has been on my travel bucket list for awhile and I am so glad I got to experience it! Here is my list of the top ten things to do in Edinburgh.

My friend McKenzie and I took a trip to the Timberline Lodge on Mt. Hood last week. Neither of us had been to the lodge at this time of the year. We were hoping to get some wintery shots in the snow and evergreens and we were not disappointed! The whole area looked like a winter wonderland. I felt like I was in a scene from “White Christmas”.

Teeth Whitening for Sensitive Teeth

By on November 12, 2017

Growing up, I was really embarrassed of my teeth because I didn’t like what my smile looked like. After going through half of high school in braces, I am extremely proud of my smile today. I was lucky enough to win a teeth whitening giveaway at my dentist’s office but I haven’t had my teeth professionally whitened since then. That was about ten years ago.

I got to do a really fun photo shoot with Corrie Mahr Photography this past summer. I am just now getting around to posting the photos but better late than never right?! Corrie and I went to college together and I’ve always admired her work so it was really exciting to be behind her lens. We met for coffee to brain storm shoot locations and ideas. We both thought a rooftop photo shoot would be really cool and I knew the perfect location! The top of the Pioneer Courthouse Square Smart Park in downtown Portland.

This past weekend I met up with a few local bloggers for brunch at Tusk, a beautiful restaurant in Portland, Oregon. It was so fun to meet other bloggers and make connections. I loved learning about their backgrounds, passions, and goals. I love being able to connect with like minded boss babes like these gals. Thank you to Jacqueline from Brunchinista for organizing the event! I can’t wait for more brunches in the future.

I felt super cute with my denim hat and hiking outfit.

I grew up on a cherry farmed turned apple farm but I haven’t picked apples in years. I asked my friend McKenzie to go apple picking with me this fall. We went to beautiful Douglas Farms on Sauvie Island, a U-pick farm with green and red apples. It was a ton of fun taking pictures, exploring the orchard, and picking some yummy apples.

Schyler and I have gone to the pumpkin patch every fall for the past 3 years to pick out the perfect pumpkins; one for each of us to carve. We always make a day out of it by taking a hay ride, going through a corn maze, and drinking pumpkin spice lattes. Usually, we ask strangers to snap a quick photo of us. This year, my good friend McKenzie came along and took some beautiful pictures of us. She is so talented! I just had to share these.
