Seattle’s Best Eats

For those who don’t know me, I love to try out new restaurants + hole in the wall places for food. With Seattle only being a couple of hours away, it’s always a convenient + cheap weekend getaway destination. My friend’s sister used to live in Seattle and she has HIGHLY recommended the following places:

1) Fort. St. George in the International Village close to downtown Seattle. They serve Japanese comfort food: Japanese curry, Fried Spicy Chicken, croquette, etc.

We had the croquette, spaghetti with Meat Sauce and Garlic Mayo; Japanses Curry with hamburger meat. Simple ideas but really delicious! I gonna try making this at home:

2) Molly Moon’s Homemade Icecream in Capitol Hill. Look at how beautiful their store is. Everything from the counter tops to chairs and tables are made from birch. They serve traditional homemade icecream, which reminds me of Bi-Rite in San Francisco. I liked their icecream, but found it a little too sweet. Hence I still prefer Bi-Rite and would love to go back to San Francisco for that :) mmmmmmmm nevertheless, Molly Moon satisfied my sweet tooth and their portions were huge.

I wish I bought these ice-cream flavoured lip balms home. Look at the cute packaging.


This is a single scoop. see what I am talking about in terms of portions?

3) Tacos El Asaderos

This has got to be my favourite food spot in Seattle, authentic Mexican food and not to mention the experience of eating in a beat up bus/ truck with a kitchen and stools. It was COOL!

We ordered tacos, ceviche and a burrito to share. All made with fresh ingredients + authentic taste. I would love to go RIGHT NOW.

This or that

George St. Pierre's Rushfit

Try to reach up to da sky
I have to say, GSP's workout routines look really intimidating.


(lol!) Mike "The Situation" Sorrention's The Situation Workout

No I do not want that jiggle behind my arms.
And I counted, the word 'situation' comes up 19 times.

If you havent heard, Target is coming to Canada and the first wave of Zellers locations they will take over has been revealed! Of the 105 retail sites opening in Canada, 15 will reside in BC while Ontario will possess 45. Second wave to be revealed in September.

Target is known for its collaborations with high-end brands like Zac Posen, Mulberry, and of course McQueen, producing trendy yet affordable products. Now who doesn't get excited about that? On top of that, you gotta love their vast selection of cute shoes, home decor, and snacks.

If you reside in Canada, Target stores will be popping up in a neighbourhood near you early 2013. Oakridge Mall will be that much cooler in 2 years.

Full list of locations here.

DIY studded top

I thought it was funny when I showed my mom this DIY top, she said it reminded her of Elvis. Then I took a second look at it and thought to myself "heh, she's right." haha. Studding is probably one of the easiest forms of DIYs and not to mention the endless possibilities our creativity could bring us. When I first saw this blouse, I knew that it would be the perfect 'stud it yourself' project. I always feel that studs automatically put the cool factor to any garment. There's really nothing fancy needed here, just a plain top, vast amount of studs, and a sprinkle of imagination :) Vision the pattern before starting because there's no room for mistakes [the teeth of the studs will leave holes]! Read my previous DIY post for more ideas.

tip: Studs could get really heavy, especially with the 200+ I've used, so make sure to pick a thicker fabric to avoid it from scrunching.

I just can’t get you out of my head…


Here we go again
We're sick like animals
We play pretend
You're just a cannibal
And I'm afraid I wont get out alive
No I won't sleep tonight

October weather in Vancouver has been surprisingly and unusually nice to us this year, allowing me to wear these shoes I bought last month a few more times before it gets too cold. I often find myself caught in seasonal footwear dilemmas: inappropriately wanting to wear knee-high boots on warm sunny days and sandals in the freezing winter. I guess we always want what we can't have :) I'm currently working on a DIY project so stay tuned for my next post [hint: studs and a lot of it].
