George Balanchine's The Nutcracker at the Pacific Northwest Ballet

PNB Nutcracker Outfit

What a fun, wholesome hearted evening, friends! Such a joy and privilege to be able to see George Balanchine's The Nutcracker last Saturday night. If you get the opportunity, you should definitely try to get your tickets while you can. I had the honor of hosting a group of ladies for the non-profit organization I am a part of in Seattle. Tickets are considerably more affordable if you decide to go in a group of 10 or more. The more people, the less per ticket. We were able to get a very special and exclusive backstage tour before the performance began. Going backstage was incredible but being able to make one little girl's dream come true was another. She not only met one but two of the ballerinas before the show began. Her face was lit up for the rest of the night!

Shopping for coats can not only be costly but exhausting. There are many different types of coats/jackets and finding a nice one for a good price can be daunting. Especially if you're on a budget. Which is why many of my coats from the thrift store.

Holiday Gift Guide for Stocking Stuffers

Gift Guide

Hi Friends! One of my favorite Holiday Gift Guides is coming in hot today for you. This guide is terrific not just for Stocking Stuffers but also for mini gifts to treat friends, co-workers or staff members. Personally, I'm grabbing a few of these for members of the non-profit I'm apart of. I know my favorite volunteers always need hair ties for when they're getting dirty or lotion to moisturize after wearing gloves all day. Check out my favorites below!

Favorite Pecan Pie

Pecan Pie

Hello Friends! I sincerely hope you had an amazing Thanksgiving and you were able to share it with family and/or friends. Thanksgiving is always a fun time for my family but this year I was having some stomach issues and was almost completely out of commission. I saved some strength for a quick pie and the main meal but I ended up coming home an entire day early and missing out on some awesome shopping opportunities in Portland due to some pain.

In short - please excuse the pictures. They're not my best work but it's what I could do with what I had. However, despite my pictures this recipe is amazing.

Holiday Gift Guide for the Traveler

Holiday Travel Gift Guide 2018
Hello friends, I hope you had an amazing Thanksgiving yesterday. I hope you were able to celebrate with friends and family. I truly hope you were able to make new memories with one another this year. I have a Thanksgiving post coming up. I wasn't able to work ahead this year due to other commitments from the non-profit I'm apart of and work. So, my pie recipe will have to wait til either Saturday or Sunday.

I'm reallllly excited to continue making these vision boards for you guys. When I make these, I tend to have a person in mind. For this one, this has my youngest sister, S, all over it. She's definitely our little traveller. She's been more places than me and is always up for a new and fun adventure. If that sounds like someone in your life, this is the post for you!
