There is a sense of celebration in the air, with Christmas around the corner. The most festive (and delicious!) time of the year is almost here. It’s time to catch up with friends and family over lingering feasts and conversations. Good food and wine are synonymous with Christmas parties. While most of us plan the food way in advance, picking out the wines is often a last-minute stressor. It doesn’t have to be that way!

Sophisticated, high quality urban wear.


New Constitution Clothing (NCC) is a Bellevue-based company featuring unisex clothing designed to provide a longer, slimmer, tailored fit. It gives a sophisticated look, complementing your frame no matter your size. The logo is subtle, and the fit, look, and feel of the designs speak for themselves. NCC uses high-quality Peruvian cotton and you can feel the difference. We had the chance to sit down with owner, Brandon Harkless, to talk about his company.

Local farm fresh foods delivered to your door.

In 2011, two busy moms started Acme Farms + Kitchen to make accessing local food easier. They realized that buying seasonal, local food changed the way we were cooking and eating, but we needed guidance on how to prepare them. The Locavore Box provides an array of delicious, fresh vegetables and cuts of meat along with recipes, meal plans, and kitchen tips. A “locavore” is a person interested in eating food that is locally produced, not moved long distances to market (often within 100 miles).
