Today I got a chance to meet Shiro Kashiba from Shiro Sushi. Shiro Kashiba is known for awing Seattle sushi enthusiasts with his sushi mastering skills. Although he’s recently retired, Shiro demonstrated his sushi preparation and technique at the Pike Place Market’s Atrium Kitchen. During the demonstration I also received a signed copy of his book. If you’re into sushi like I am you should check it out. The book contains recipes, images and illustrations of Shiro throughout his life. Shiro: Wit, Wisdom & Recipes from a Sushi Pioneer

Seattle’s new foodie hub

October 30, 2014
Pioneer square

Pioneer Square has always been a tourist hot spot for t-shirts, magnets and other Seattle souvenirs but recently the area has been getting some noticeable upgrades. Dubded Seattle’s new foodie hub, PSQ restaurants like London Plane, Pizzeria Gabbiano, Quality Athletics and Caffe Umbria are really making some waves. Although I couldn’t eat everywhere, I did try out a few spots.

Macklesmores

If you love sweets like I do you then Seattle’s Hello Robin is the place to go. Not only does Hello Robin serve fresh, warm and soft baked cookies but they also serve Seattle’s very own Molly Moons Ice Cream. Robin and Moons become a wonderful combination when you order the Hello Robin ice cream sandwich pictured above. I was lucky enough to grab one of the legendary Mackles’more (Named after Seattle rapper Macklemore) cookies right as they were coming out of the oven. The Mackles’more cookie is made with chocolate chip cookie, graham cracker, and marshmallows. So Good!

Get oversized! The Oversized Blazer is a good look for fall. Paired it with a skinny jean to accentuate blazer size and you have a look with attitude and style.

The Nautical look

September 28, 2014

I love to squeeze out the last bit out of summer before it runs into fall. Today a group of friends and I went out on the docks to cruise the Pacific and enjoy the sun. I’m lucky to have friends with boats so I don’t have to spend the money on one. Here’s one way to get “the Nautical Look” without dropping anchor on a new boat or tons of money in department stores.

Kayaking in the Puget Sound

September 11, 2014

Ballard Kayak invited me out to enjoy their Discovery Point Kayak & Hiking Tour. As this was my first time Kayaking, I was a bit nervous. My guide gave me a brief training lesson on the beach and afterwards we were off! The 3.5 hr tour starts at Golden Gardens and continues on to Discovery Point. Once at Discovery Point, we went on a short hike to Discovery Bluff to get a view of the Olympic Mountains. Before heading back to Golden Gardens we enjoyed a gourmet lunch and paddled through Shilshole Marina. During the trek back I got to see a few animals like eagles and sleepy floating seals. My experience with Ballard Kayak was fantastic and I recommend it to any one who enjoys being out on the water.

I took my GoPro along with me so you can experience the tour as I did. I hope you enjoy it!

Moore Coffee – Seattle

August 14, 2014

If you’re traveling through Seattle and looking for one of those not so secret but cool spots that most know about but few have been, then you should check out Moore Coffee located in the heart of downtown Seattle. What I like about Moore is the intimate atmosphere and relaxing décor.

Not only does Moore produce an assortment of delicious hot and cold caffeinated beverages but they also have a small kitchen that creates Instagram worthy breakfast waffles and sandwiches. My favorite choice to order is the Strawberry Shortcake waffle, which has fresh strawberries that are smothered in whipped cream and hot Matcha green tea latte.

Seattle weather has been so nice lately I felt like taking a cruise on the beach with my new Longboard (Dusters)I’m trying to get as much in boarding before the end of the season. Summer is definitely becoming my favorite season of all. I hope this warm weather lasts forever! My outfit: Shirt/Workshop Tank/Express Shorts/Levis Shoes/Converse
