Chicwish Watercolor Dress

Posted on 5

This Chicwish watercolor dress looks so pretty against these recently rained on peonies. Something I heard as a child that has always stuck with me is “rain is a festival of water.” It means that you shouldn’t look at rain as a bad thing, but instead as a celebration.

The Hotel deLuxe in Portland, Oregon

Posted on 21

The hotel is incredibly chic, and it reminds me of a boutique hotel that should exist in Manhattan. The name says it all, Hotel deLuxe is incredibly luxe. From the moment you step inside you are greeted by giant chandeliers, a screen playing rolls of old Hollywood classics, fancy furniture and a lot of welcomes by staff members. I even got to pose in a vintage Rolls Royce for the photo shoot, I mean how much more classy can I get??

While I didn’t stay overnight at the hotel, I can definitely say from the rooms that I saw it is quite the chic hotel. The location is great too – you aren’t directly in the hustle and bustle of Portland, but everything is in walking distance. My favorite part of the hotel was the lobby – there is something so magical and luxurious about it! I could hang out there all day! Some other features of the hotel that I love are the intimate bar called Driftwood Room and the giant dining room restaurant called Gracie’s. With a piano, tall filigree beams and delicious food, Gracie’s is a show-stopper of a restaurant and adds to the old-school Hollywood feel of the hotel’s ambiance.

Portland Arcade: Getting My Game On

Posted on 5

I had a fun time shooting at a Portland Arcade called Electric Castle’s Wunderland. If you have been following my blog and Instagram for a while, you may know by now that I am a huge gamer. I love all types of games, be it sports, board games or video games. I have a competitive nature, and gaming allows me to hyper focus on one task at a time.

My photographer and I also shot at a really cool bar and restaurant called Nerd Out. This bar has comic book clippings all over the walls, and the name says it all – you can come here to nerd out with your friends! Luckily the two locations are across the street from one another, so you can have a fun night of nerding  out with your friends. If you’re ever in the area you need to check out this Portland arcade, it’s a really fun time.

From Space Invaders, to Sonic the Hedgehog, to Spider Man – I am all about the pop and gaming culture. I think a lot of people are confused when I say I am so into gaming, but I have been a gamer my entire life. I currently play on Xbox and sometimes on PC, but I have been playing on console a lot as an adult. As a kid I was a diehard Pokemon fan. My love of gaming stemmed from the classics, such as Nintendo’s Donkey Kong 64, Playstation’s Space Invaders, and World of Warcraft on PC.
