Saturday mornings come with their own kind of beauty. If we are up and the weather is fine, we plan to visit the Portland Farmer’s Market. It is one of the greatest treats of our lovely city.

Even though J maybe fussy, it somehow still doesn’t seem as stressful when our whole little family is together.

Even though I love fashion and blogging, the excessive overconsumption and materialism of style blogging does not quite fit with my personal values. It is oh-so-conflicting with my native roots and desire to take care of our planet. However, we do have to wear clothes and why not spice it up a little from time to time by reusing items you already have.Read More
I don’t know about you, but Nordstrom is one of my favorite places to shop. Starting today through the 18th is their Early Access period for Nordstrom card holders for their Anniversary Sale. The sale is open to everyone else from July 19th through August 4th.
Since it is a little more difficult for me to get out of the house nowadays, I searched online for some great deals and items to put on a wishlist. Here are my favorite items going on sale soon!
