It’s been a roller coaster winter this year. In comparison to past years, there’s been more sun and less rain at the expense of a lot of snow. While I personally loved the snow (don’t hate me) I think we’re all more than ready to put that past us, right? As we anxiously await spring and warmer temperatures, here’s a list of our favorite parks for walks (you just might need to bundle up).

When I heard local beauty gurus Herbivore Botanicals was releasing a new skincare product made with cannabis, I wasn’t surprised. That’s so Seattle. Many other beauty companies have been using CBD (Do yourself a favor and get a Kush Queen bath bomb – your welcome) to soothe aches and pains and enhance relaxation for some time, but I love supporting local and was excited to learn why Herbivore decided to dabble with cannabis. 

Flywheel is doing an extensive brand refresh and remodeling of its two Seattle-area locations in South Lake Union and Bellevue. All renovations are scheduled to be completed by Friday, October 26th. Flywheel is the leading boutique fitness brand that pioneered putting technology on an indoor cycling bike and has been providing results-driven classes across the US. 

Fabletics, an athleisure brand by Kate Hudson, opened their first retail location in the Pacific Northwest. The brand opened a flagship store at The Bellevue Collection, located in Bellevue Square on August 30th. The brand will celebrate its 5-year anniversary this October and has enhanced in-store concepts, brand new in-store look, and special collections for this landmark occasion.
