Presently stuck on the West Coast. Nightmare details for the flights I managed to book home. As I sipped a margarita at Commuter Comforters-Pier 52 Seattle waiting for my boat back to the Island (sigh), Sixto Rodriguez came on the speakers.

Going on holiday tomorrow! Whilst moaning over the pile of work before me (and procrastinating with this blog post), the following suggestion has been made:
"I have a tip. 1. Put on Eye of the Tiger. 2. Straighten your left arm. 3. Place arm on left side of desk. 4. Sweep arm from left to right. Problem solved."
Segue to Pandora (which I've got tweeked just right). Track 1...
Getting past the epic background image (the tiger really pulls it together! white gloves? done deal!) to We Are the People by Empire of the Sun...doesn't the vibe feel just right?
Pushing through! And looking forward to sharing the Pacific Northwest with you next week with photos and venue reviews!
I'm gonna leave ya now.

From the people who opened the very sexy Bin No. 220, there's a new kid on the block. Keg No. 229 recently opened its doors, taking ownership on the space once occupied by Onda. Housed in a 200 year-old building with the original exposed brick, the space maintains charm and four reclaimed wood tables.

I've always harbored an affection for the classic striped Pendelton Woolen Mills blanket. Apparently, there is a travel mug to fulfill your craving for the functionable design and preppy-chic style.

Check out this fantastic new blog: I Want to Be Her! Andrea Linett, a former creative director of Lucky magazine, stops fashionable New York women on the street to ask them about their style. She uses the style tips she collects to illustrate the ladies and highlight where you can find the pieces.
