few weeks left in seattle

Aug 14, 2014


I've been pretty busy these past several weeks, visiting lots of places, and eating tons of food! I have so many photos to share with you all. I have about two weeks left here in Seattle which makes me so sad, but I will be visiting again very soon! Be sure to follow along on instagram for daily photos of my trip!   — Minna

lady yum macarons

Jul 21, 2014


Last week, I attended the pre-opening of Lady Yum in Kirkland, located right near the waterfront. I have never really tried macarons before, and I must say, they were delicious! They are like crispy pillows of goodness with sweet cream inside, mmm. Lady Yum offers a wide variety of unique flavors like mango habanero and maple bacon, and some classic ones as well which includes my favorite, salted caramel! The shop also features various wine selections and local artisan food products. The doors officially opened last friday, so if you are in the area, I highly recommend you stop by!   — Minna

I really want to try these homemade recipes for basic sauces! I never knew some of them were so easy to make! I'm definitely going to try the barbecue sauce and the chimichurri sauce. Yummm!   — Minna

I was in awe when I saw this creative project by Alice Mourou, Dmitriy Petrov, Olesya Korsak, and Nikita Schukin. All I can think of is how long this must of taken! The end result is just beautiful!

around town

Jul 15, 2014


I've been eating a lot these days... haha I won't be surprised if I gain a lot of weight by the time I get home! Going around downtown and visiting little shops has been so much fun! Be sure to follow me on instagram to see where i'm going!   — Minna  

summer hair

Jul 14, 2014


My hair has gotten very long, so lately i've been trying to find ways to creatively tie up my hair when I am feeling too lazy. I am contemplating whether or not I want to chop all my hair off, but like always, I tend to regret it afterwards... What is your favorite hairstyle at the moment?   — Minna

It is friday! I'm sure many of you are excited for the weekend to enjoy the sunshine!   — Minna 

time for coffee

Jul 10, 2014


It's no surprise that there's a Starbucks in every corner here in Seattle, so it's nice to discover other small coffee shops around town. I found Storyville Coffee Co. located right in front of Pike Place, and I can't believe i've never been there before because I had the best caramel latte ever! I definitely want to go back and have another.   — Minna

what i learned

Jul 3, 2014


Here is a little statement that I found that is so nice. It really makes me think about life and all the things that i've been through. There are many unexpected moments in life and there is always an opportunity to learn and become better...

Tomorrow is the Fourth of July! Hooray! I am so excited because I will be driving up to Canada early in the morning for a nice weekend trip. I will be eating lots of food, and will be going to the Richmond Night Market for the first time! Hope everyone has a fun and safe weekend!    — Minna
