I had such a fun time apple picking at the base of Mt. Hood wearing my Billy T plaid pants. An apple a day keeps the doctor away, or so they say!

Portland Arcade: Getting My Game On

Posted on 4

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.

Aphrodite in the Peninsula Park Rose Garden

This park reminded me of the garden of Eden. The hedges were trimmed perfectly, the trees were shaped perfectly round, and the delightful colors of the roses added to the ethereal atmosphere.

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!
