I absolutely could not get enough of this Netflix series last year. Kevin and I would spend so many of our Saturday mornings playing catch up on it and now we’re both pretty excited to see it return shortly. That cliffhanger at the end of last season – I already need to know what’s going to happen.
It was a random weekend evening that I discovered ‘Chrisley Knows Best.’ I didn’t know who Todd Chrisley was or what he did. I thought the show was absolutely ridiculous, but then I found myself watching the second episode, the third episode, the fourth, and then becoming excited that the show had been renewed for a second season. ‘Chrisley Knows Best’ is a 30-minute series airing on both USA and E! and follows the lives of Todd Chrisley, his wife, and their five kids.
I think the most entertaining part of this show is that Todd is the most strict parent I’ve ever witnessed on television. You would think that with all of the money that they have, the family is always striving for perfection and that his kids can get their way with just about anything, but that just isn’t true. His kids mess up. They make mistakes and every episode there seems to be some kind of a heart-wrenching life lesson with each of them and yes, they tug at my heart strings. This family is adorable and Todd Chrisley whatever he does for a living doesn’t really matter because he’s seems like a pretty great father and a family man. I’m looking forward to seeing what the second season will bring.
Most people like to believe that ziplining is something that you can only do in Costa Rica or some other exotic location. Bellevue, WA is squashing that rumor and even moreso because Bellevue in itself is not an exotic location at all. As of last weekend, Bellevue Zip Tours is now open to the public in Eastgate Park.
The area in which this course is located is actually quite beautiful. I’m pretty sure that I’ve done several ropes courses in this area throughout my college years so it wasn’t that much of a surprise to me that they set up the tours here. In fact, I think it’s a great idea and an activity that will see a lot of action especially during the summer. In June, Bellevue Zip Tours will only be available on weekends, but starting July – they will be open every day for business.
Tours are approximately 2.5 hours (depending on how big of a group you go with), and $69 per adult, $44 for kids. While the riding age minimum is 9, riders under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

The angels were excited this morning as they made the announcement that next year’s annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show would be heading to London!
They broke the news during a press conference inside Victoria’s Secret’s Bond Street store in London Tuesday. “We’re pretty excited to be here today because we have this great announcement to make,” Lima said. “The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is the biggest fashion event in the world, for sure, and we’re very proud and honored to announce that we are headed to London this year. Yes!”
“I’d like to invite Prince Harry, if he would like to come,” Lima told reporters. The 32-year-old Brazilian beauty promised he’d get the VIP treatment, of course. “He definitely has a front row seat!” she said.
Previous shows have been held in Los Angeles, New York City, Cannes, and Miami. I remember seeing looks on the runway featuring the Union Jack in previous shows, but I’m so curious as to what the themes will be this year. And as for performers? We hope it will be better than Fall Out Boy and Taylor Swift. My vote is for Sam Smith and Jessie Ware.
I didn’t get to do too much digging around, but yesterday one of my favorite fashion blogs, Fashionista, unveiled their new look and I am absolutely loving it. I don’t think there was anything really wrong with their previous layout, but one of my biggest qualms was having to continue to scroll down to read content. If I ever felt overwhelmed, it was because of that, maybe. With the new layout, photos accompanying the articles are brought right to the front. The text is much easier to read and timestamps – oh my gosh – the timestamps are much more visible! In the previous layout, I was either guessing or squinting my eyes trying to figure out the date. That’s just not a problem with the new layout.
Fashionista.com – we give you a thumbs up! Thanks for making my fashion blog reading so much easier.
When I learned that the partial lineup would be released this morning, I had my laptop in… lap at 8:55 AM ready to go and not willing to miss a thing. The partial lineup isn’t the entirety, but it’s enough to hold us over and give us a tease of what’s to come. By the looks of it, if these are the names they are releasing now, then the rest of the lineup will surely not disappoint. I saw both Chromeo and Matt and Kim at the former Street Scene San Diego Festival years ago and have been itching to catch a performance of theirs ever since. I also was able to catch Beat Connection at Bumbershoot this year as a last minute filler to their lineup and am so excited about all of their new material.
Not bad Capitol Hill… but don’t make us wait too much longer for the rest. We’ll be waiting.
Wow. No words. What an amazing lineup! I’m super excited to be attending my first Outside Lands festival this year!
God, please bless me with a sacred press pass :)
If Kate Moss’s name is on anything, everyone’s ears immediately perk up. Her long lasting relationship with Topshop has brought so much success to the retailer and there’s no doubt that it won’t happen again. Her highly anticipated collection for Topshop has something for everyone from tailored pieces to dresses that you can’t wait to wear out. Each piece is clearly inspired by the pieces from Kate’s own wardrobe. Prices will range from $70-$1,200 and available for purchase online and in stores at Topshop, Nordstrom, Net-a-Porter, and ShopBazaar.com. Here are some pieces that we’re pretty excited about:
The Capitol Hill that I had the opportunity to experience back in college is not the Capitol Hill it is today. When I first learned about the closing of the pizza place in my university’s neighborhood, I was instantly reminded of that Boy Meets World episode where Cory returns to his hometown to find that the restaurant he frequented – Chubbie’s – had undergone a complete renovation. It wasn’t the same and in a weird way it completely turned pirate themed. Piecora’s was a huge part of the Seattle University community. We always worked with them for events and they were so happy to work with us! I could always count on them for a slice of their amazing veggie pizza, salad, and spumoni. I still remember a night in college where I had given up on studying and dragged my then roommate – Anna with me so that I could get my fix.
Piecora’s has decided to sell to a developer – Equity Residential for $10.29 million. It’s interesting because Equity is one of the largest owners of apartments and was my home for two years. Piecora’s has been living at their E Madison location for 30 years and will close for good on Tuesday, April 15th.
I’m really going to miss this place.
Earlier this week, I learned that lifestyle blog DailyCandy will be shuttering in April. While I don’t have all the time in the world these days to keep up with some of my favorite blogs, I am still sad to learn this news. Lifestyle blogs encompass so many topics ranging from health, technology, relationships, life, etc and cover much more ground than your standard fashion blogs. Another reason why I am partial to DailyCandy is because our former guest interviewee Suchin Pak was a correspondent for the lifestyle blog and regularly contributed to the site. Above is one of her segments on gadgets in technology that she was obsessed with at the time.
DailyCandy will surely be missed.
Since the end of the first season for the web series, I’ve been wondering whether or not Nicole Richie would be returning. It was announced on Monday that VH1 has actually picked up the web series to be an actual television series starting Thursday, July 17th. The season will include 8 half-hour episodes and we’re more than thrilled because that is more than triple the time that we used to get with her web series!
In case you forgot about the funny…
This might just be the best news that I’ve read in the last week. After six years, Copeland is reuniting to release their 5th full-length self-titled album. When I was a teenager, I remember that feeling of angst and feeling so connected to the music that I was listening to. I probably listened to Copeland the most when I was driving simultaneously weeping to myself in the car. This reunion album will be nothing short of amazing and words cannot even describe how excited I am.
I’ve actually been listening to States – a band comprised of Mindy White and former Copeland members Bryan and Stephen Laurenson and every now and then I feel like I can hear a bit of their older sound. It’s not completely the same though. Just listening to the song teaser above brings back the memories.
