pop-up shop at Westlake Center June 20 and 21 – Father’s Day Weekend

I’m a big fan of – great prices and totally convenient. On June 20 and 21, they’re bringing some products to their “Pop Up Pop Shop” at Westlake Center in Downtown Seattle.

Swing by 11am – 6pm both days to shop for Father’s Day inspired gifts, enjoy hot dogs from Dante’s Inferno food truck, a social photo activation, putting green (with golf-pros that can help give you tips) and the chance to win tickets to the big golf match on Sunday. Based on my score from mini-golf with friends this last weekend, I better take some notes!

Check out some men’s fashion on their Pinterest board.

A North Face coat changed my social life this winter

I was given a North Face coat to review! SO Seattle! When the days are short and the rain is heavy, it’s hard to get motivated to get out of the house on winter nights in Seattle.  Going out on a cold and rainy night just got a lot easier for me, since I was gifted this North Face coat. Seriously.  You know the nights – it’s rainy, it’s cold, it’s gross out. Suddenly that Netflix instant queue starts looking a lot more appealing than trudging outside in the weather. No more deciding not to do something because I didn’t want to get cold or wet. I know I’m going to stay warm and dry with this coat.
Owning this coat has made me realize how many of my coats really fall short in keeping me warm! The lining of the pockets are soft (in mint color matching the coat lining which I love!) so keep my hands warm and cozy. The zipper zips all the way up to your chin – great coverage on the coldest moments. This jacket makes me want to get out hiking soon, but is cute enough to wear in the city.  I’m planning on taking it to the coast this weekend!

North Face coats and accessories available at Macy’s.

Disclaimer: Gigasavvy gifted me with this coat but all opinions are my own.  I’m definitely buying North Face in the future! I love this coat!


More photos coming soon.

Keridwyn’s Waffle: New Scarf

My friend Molly M started a FUN blog called The Waffler – you send her things you’re debating between and she posts to her fans to vote what they like the most. I’m featured today – will you take a minute and vote?

The Waffler

Keridwyn is a busy girl. Not only does she run her own social media marketing business, but she recently created Seattle Pockets, a blog devoted to sharing cool Seattle events and activities.  And now she needs our help.  Keridwyn loves these fun (and affordable!) scarves from DIDUCI, but is waffling about which color to get.   Here are Keridwyn’s options:


diduci-turquoise-scarf, turquoise-scarf, etsy-scarf, pretty-scarf, inexpensive-scarf, fun-scarf


diduci-white-scarf, scarf, white-scarf, etsy-scarf


green-DIDUCI-scarf, pretty-scarf, pretty-cotton-scarf, etsy-scarf


yellow-DIDUCI-scarf, pretty-scarf, etsy-scarf


Keeping Keridwyn’s coloring in mind, which scarf do you think would suit her best?
