Bartfest 2014

When I first read this poster, I thought this said “Barf Fest.” Lol. Spokane is getting their first music festival and you know what? The lineup ain’t bad! Their local acts are amazing – Pickwick, Beat Connection, La Luz. Whoever is running ship on this festival did a wonderful job for a first lineup. This couldn’t have been easy. Enjoy Spokane! This sounds like fun!

Serious FOMO

IMG_8240

It pains me to have to miss Capitol Hill Block Party this year – the first in many years! It used to be the event that I looked forward to the most every summer not only because it was just so much fun, but because it took place in my neighborhood. I’m missing it this year (for a while I thought I was actually going to fly back for it) and while I’m disappointed I won’t be there, I know that the festival won’t disappoint. They’ve got such a great lineup and I wish I were there! My friend from back home, Lucas, sent this photo over to me last week from the Girl Talk set last summer on a flier promoting Capitol Hill Block Party.

Nailing it.

Snaps for A Snapshot

Who: Nicola Peltz

Wearing: Stella McCartney bodysuit w/ a Dolce & Gabbana lace skirt.

Where: “Transformers: Age of Extinction” press tour in Berlin, Germany

We don’t normally feature someone for “Snaps for a Snapshot” nearly twice in one month, but when you dress as well as Nicola Peltz, how could we not?! The 19-year old has definitely caught our eye while on her tour promoting her recent film and while we hear the film isn’t really good, she’s totally nailing it with her outfits on the red carpet. I love how she paired a skirt with this body suit and kept it classy. The cutouts on the side add a little sexiness to this all white outfit.

The Weekend: Lots of Things!

photo 4

It’s been two weeks since we’ve had one of these posts and so much has happened! I didn’t have time to post last weekend’s highlights so I’m combining it with this lovely holiday weekend. Some of my best girl friends from Seattle flew to see Ash and I for the long weekend and like any vacation we jam packed our days from start to finish. It’s interesting how the trips you plan when you are out of college and “more of an adult” shift from the vacation breaks you had when you were in school. Instead of traveling to cities where you plan on drinking constantly and sleeping in because of your hangovers, you’re waking up at 8:00 and getting your morning started. (Sort of like how the five of us would any day!) Instead of drinking, we put our money towards amazing meals and instead of going to bars, we went wine tasting in Sonoma. So there.

- also don’t those fireworks look great?! They went off Wednesday evening in San Francisco after the Giant’s game and they looked a whole lot better than the ones we tried to watch on 4th of July from this view.

I did my first hike with some co-workers at Rancho San Antonio Open Space last weekend! There really are some gorgeous views here in the Bay Area.

On Sunday afternoon, we caught a free concert from Yuna and Allen Stone at Stern Grove. We had never been over to this area before, but we loved how it was just kind of hidden in this park and large enough to hold a concert and fit THIS many people. It’s definitely one of the prettiest venues I’ve ever been to.

We’ve been watching episodes of this on Netflix.

We got athletic and competitive during our pre 4th of July company picnic with Bubble Soccer.

Happy 4th from the Seattle gang!

Visiting our Ash at Stanford

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!

BottleRock Napa 2014

Oh so I really missed the boat on this one. I’m still learning about all the music festivals around here and this one has a pretty interesting lineup filled with a lot of locals and smaller name acts, but a handful that I wouldn’t mind seeing for a first time (or a second time!)

I will never say no to Mayer Hawthorne or Matt & Kim.

Kimye’s Wedding – The First Photos

So E! revealed the first photos of Kim Kardashian and Kanye’s wedding today and yes, they were as gorgeous as you thought they were be. The very fashionable couple both wore Givenchy as they are pretty close friends with Riccardo Tisci. Kim wore a Givenchy Haute Couture gown while Kanye opted for a custom Givenchy suit.

I know I haven’t seen very many photos, but I think I love the look of her third wedding even more than her second!

Now the big question is…will there or will there not be a televised wedding special on E! I really need to know.
