Lookbook Love: Wildfang's #EvanRachelWould

My favorite PDX ladies, Emma & the team at WILDFANG are still slaying, and this time around they've enlisted the likes of Evan Rachel Wood, Beth Ditto and Kim Gordon for some fun in Rip City. In this sweet little vid,  Evan finds out the answers to the question, “What if yes was the right answer instead of no...?”

Magic Hour is In at Pop-In @Nordstrom

Pop-In@Nordstrom strikes again with Magic Hour, a shop inspired by that pause-point right before the last shred of daylight is gone – where the night is young and anything can happen.
The shop is chock full of gear and other goodies to prepare you for festival season and other forms of dusk-time mischief. Expect everything from technicolor treats courtesy of Dylan’s Candy Bar, an exclusive capsule collection of tees, a hoodie, bandanas and a tote from Major Lazer, men’s and women’s apparel from Denmark’s Wood Wood, custom painted Rialto jeans, Rodarte’s Spring 2015 jewelry collection, Saint Chic paparazzi visors, Lomo Instant Cameras, TOMS Traveler Collection of shades, FCTRY squeezable gummy lights and so, so much more.

Peep all my faves and hover over the images for more info on each piece!

The Year of Simplify: My March Email Challenge

In this year of simplifying, I'm focusing in on cutting down on my inputs so I can increase my output. One of those inputs, however, is a necessary evil and though sometimes I wish I could cut email out completely, I can't.

Just like note-taking and to-do lists, I've never been able to stick to an email processing system that works for me. I check it when I don't have the time to properly answer (hey smartphone addiction), and then I let them pile up, making a digital mountain out of a molehill.

In the Spark Notebook is space for a 30-day challenge. Why not make my first monthly challenge to tackle this email issue once and for all?

How I Glow: Bella Fiore Organic Med Spa

A good facial should be part of every skin routine, as both an occasional indulgence and an essential part of maintaining that glow. I had the chance to check out Bella Fiore™ Organic Med Spa™ in upper Queen Anne last weekend, and it's every bit as nourishing and relaxing as it is beautiful.

Seriously. Most spas are dark and many are sectioned off into lots of private rooms, but Bella Fiore looks like it could be the apartment of one of your girls - the one with impeccable taste in home decor. I fell asleep during my facial staring up at the beautiful moulding of the ceiling tiles.

I had Bella Fiore's signature naturopathic facial, in which my esthetician Nicole used all ISUN products. ISUN is an organic, natural, 'wild-crafted' bioactive ('sup plants) skin care line out of Colorado. I especially loved the Intense Exfoliant - like honey with bee stings that tingle instead of hurt - and the Vegan Moisturizing Mask, which is basically a superfood acai bowl for your face. Not only did my skin feel good, but I felt good about what was going into it.


Bella Fiore is passionately committed to providing results-oriented 100% organic skin care. In addition to the Med Spa, they've also got the Klinik, which specializes in European Biological Medicine and utilizes a whole systems approach to the treatment of chronic disease. Board-certified Naturopathic physicians design individualized treatment protocols for each patient.

Check out the Bella Fiore Spa Menu, and the Bella Fiore Klinik menu. They've also got a Wellness Club with monthly facials and other really great discounts and perks that are handy if you're looking for a regular skin maintenance routine.

Thanks for having me!

Here are some of my favorite events, deals and other things to do in Seattle this weekend & the coming week!

Today through Sunday, University Village hosts its annual Shop & Dine to Make a Difference promotion. During these three days, customers are encouraged to purchase a Cure Card for $30. The Cure Card entitles the shopper to a 20% discount at participating stores and restaurants. All of the proceeds from the sale of the cards benefit women's cancer research at Fred Hutch.

Fresh Style: Neon Decade

80s babies wassup!


My friends at Bainbridge Island-based Neon Decade sent me some gear to wear recently, and the various pieces have found their way into my everyday rotation. This grey pullover is light and perfect to throw on after a workout (or in this case, a good sauna session at City Sweats.) I've been wearing this tank top to work out in, and the simple racerback fit makes it a great neutral to balance out the color and prints of all my other stuff.

Neon Decade is the fruit of a lifelong creative partnership. Working together for 30+ years on various projects from action sports to community arts, they're here now to bring you this line of clothing inspired by a decade of things we all loved.


Shop Neon Decade online & follow them on Instagram or Facebook.
