Mt Hood Lavender Field

Posted on 17

This breathtaking Mt Hood lavender field is a bee’s haven. There were so many busy bees buzzing around  pollinating the flowers to create honey. Needless to say this place smelled amazing.

The Woodlark Hotel In Portland, Oregon

Posted on 16

When you think of the words “boutique hotel” what comes to mind? Is it the charming atmosphere, the friendly staff, or the unique interiors? The Woodlark Hotel has all of the above and more. Every boutique hotel has its quirks, and my favorite characteristics of the Woodlark are the adorable cafe in the lobby, the leaf and plant wall paper, and the modern bathrooms – complete with gold hardware.

I had such an amazing stay at the Woodlark Hotel! This boutique hotel is nestled in the heart of Portland, OR. The location is unbeatable – I was able to go to my favorite restaurants and shops all within walking distance.  The decor is modern and lush. I love how the hotel incorporates plants and flowers into its atmosphere. The Woodlark is such a relaxing and calming escape from a day roaming the city – just what any hotel should be!

Gillespie Dentistry: The Best Dentists in Vancouver, Washington

Posted on 15

In this blog post I am sharing my experience with the best dentists in Vancouver, Washington: Gillespie Dentistry. They are a wonderful team of dentists who are passionate about dental health and who value their patients. This post was created in partnership with Gillespie Dentistry, but all thoughts & opinions shared are my own.

Dental health is something that I have been passionate about my entire life. I have my mother to thank for that one, because when I was growing up she was a dental hygienist. I grew up in dentist office environments, and I even worked at a dentist office as a receptionist temp. After every dental visit I still confide in my mother. You definitely get spoiled when you grow up with your own mother cleaning your teeth. She’s the best hygienist, but this baby bird had to jump out of the nest eventually and find a new practice to take care of my teeth.

I am so grateful to have met Dr. Greg Gillespie. It was pure coincidence, but I am still SO HAPPY! Greg is one of the 3 “Dr. Gillespie’s” at Gillespie Dentistry in Vancouver, Washington. The team is made up of two brothers and their cousin, and the practice was started by their fathers. What an amazing family business! I am so excited about my care plan with Gillespie Dentistry. We started with a teeth whitening treatment. After that Greg fixed up my chipped front tooth via bonding. Bonding is a dental process that uses a tooth-colored composite resin to fix a chip. The bottom photo is my current pretty smile! Up next we have some Invisalign for the crowding I have going on on my bottom teeth. I already have my first set of trays and I can see my teeth getting straighter. I can’t wait to share the finished results!

Golden Hour: Portland Acupuncture

Ever since I moved to the Pacific Northwest I have been practicing many different forms of wellness and self-care. I have been doing things like drinking more water, going on hikes and nature walks, practicing positive affirmations, and I even tried cupping. When I have a stomach ache I reach for my mint oil instead of a bottle of pills. I have been enjoying the holistic approach to health, and I love discovering ways to both enhance life and recover from illness with the help of natural remedies.

I received a chair acupuncture treatment complimentary of Golden Hour in Portland. I heard wonderful things about the location and the practice of acupuncture, and I wanted to share my wellness experience with you all!
