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.

Jason’s Wilson’s new restaurant in Bellevue downtown’s Two Lincoln Tower promises “simple, fresh, produce-driven craft cooking, accented with local seafoods and meats, handmade pasta and a house-made larder.” The restaurant features an open kitchen and modern rustic decor. The tables are placed fairly close together and it’s quite loud. Overall, it was an expensive meal to forget. 

Thanksgiving weekend just passed and we’re now in full holiday party and holiday dinner mode! It’s time to add some health and wellness to the mix. Welcome SoulCycle, a premier full-body indoor cycling and lifestyle brand, is opening of its first Pacific Northwest location in Bellevue this January. With studios along the West Coast, SoulCycle will bring the joy of movement into the greater Seattle area with a brand new location in Bellevue’s Lincoln Square Expansion.

I had never taken a spin class before this. Something about it always intimidated me. I’ve halfheartedly biked at the gym for a few minutes a handful of times and I’m an occasional summer bike rider, but that’s it. I’d heard good things from multiple people about Flywheel for a while now. I even signed up for a class three years ago, but ended up ditching last minute. I never got around to going again until a few weeks ago. This is not a sponsored post—opinions are my own.

The Eastside, particularly Bellevue, has a reputation and it’s not a positive one. Many people think of the Eastside as being cultureless with cookie-cutter chain restaurants and snobby, materialistic people driving Range Rovers and Teslas. However, while it may be true in a small way, that isn’t an entirely accurate or fair description. There’s so much more to the Eastside—don’t let a few stereotypes stop you from visiting! There are several great spots that Seattleites should consider crossing the bridge for (and a few places to avoid), you just need a little “In the Know”.

Having great hair can make any day better.

If you’re not familiar, “blowouts” are simple treatments that include a wash and style. Stylists can make your hair wavy, voluminous, or straight. Blow dry bars in Seattle haven’t caught on the way they have in Los Angeles and New York and we’re not sure why—it is a lovely experience having someone wash, dry, and style your hair. At 30% of what a haircut would cost, it leaves you feeling glamorous with event-ready hair that you didn’t have to do yourself!
