Hows your week so far? Good I hope. Well I wanted to share with you all some tidbits from my trip I had two weekends ago when I was up in Portland. As you can probably see I had a great time running around the whole city from the mountains to the nitty gritty downtown venues. I don't even know where to start to tell you about my trip in Neverland, all I know is that I so badly want to move there for certain now. The only question is when which I'll be sure to follow up with updates on that down the road.
So the first few days I was there I stayed in Northwest Portland with my friend Jenna and her partner Eli for two nights. They took me for waffle sandwiches, and on an adventure to see some beautiful waterfalls only a few miles outside the city which was spectacular, you can get a taste of what sights I saw from the pictures above, pretty rad stuff if you ask me. I loved how green and fresh everything was, the tap water was even some of the freshest best tasting water I have ever had in comparison to San Francisco's H2O, random I know but I thought it would be cool to share. I learned that Jenna and Eli are unique creative souls making and selling their handmade laser cut wood jewelry at festivals was how they earned their living up in Portland. You can check out their stuff HERE if you're curious I highly recommend it.
The other two nights I stayed with another old friend of mine Emily Black who is also from San Diego like me. We meet when we used to work together at a cafe back in SF called Cole Valley Cafe several years back and remained buds ever since. A lot has changed and we've definitely grown up quite a bit but man she sure knew how to show a gal a good time. Between brunch at Nord, shopping on 23rd street our evening adventures to Rogue brewery, Sassy's and Rontoms I had a blast. Meeting locals and making new friends from all around as well as a handful of my fellow SF natives like Sara Crane, and Emily's friends she introduced me to Daniel Christopher, Brooke Hunt and Ross Pergiel it was good company all around.
I love it so much up there. I really felt like it's where I'm meant to end up after beauty school. So stick around and continue to follow me and see what the future holds...
More to come from this trip!!! I have a film camera I took pictures with so I'll be getting it developed ASAP and posting the images on here very soon.
Check back in later loves!
