Saturdays in Seattle

Hello my lovely blogger friends! I know, I know; I have been horribly absent from blogging lately, & I'm truly sorry for my lack of posts! Just so you know, there have been serious issues/changes happening in my personal life and I have really needed to focus on my family and myself, which I am sure we can all relate to at times. That being said, I have missed staying up to date with all of the blogs I read, and with writing as well! To get back into the swing of things, I wanted to share with you all my trip to Seattle this past Saturday.

My sister & I were in need of an escape from our home town, we simply wanted to get away and spend some time just having FUN. We decided it was time to get our rear ends into the city, go to the zoo, and do some shopping. I must say, it was much needed, and very much so enjoyed!

We of course went to the Woodland Park Zoo and all in all it was an amazing day to see the animals. They were all pretty full of life and mobile that day so we got to see lots of fun things. Here's a few pictures I'd like to share...

I highly recommend that if you're ever doing any shopping in Seattle you check out University Village. We live about an hour outside the city, and it really is the closest place for decent shopping. We stopped by some really cool stores, such as Pottery Barn, Restoration Hardware, Lululemon Athletica, Barnes & Noble, TheNorthFace, the Apple Store, Crate & Barrel, Storables, and of course Sephora, not to mention a few other really neat and fun places.

I have never actually been into a Sephora store, I tend to do most of my shopping online as shipping costs are lower than gas prices, but my sister was in need of a good foundation and that's something that you want to make sure you get the proper shade in. All in all, it was an extremely fun experience. I don't think we've spoiled ourselves like that quite possibly ever, so it really felt great to get away and just have fun for the day. Here's a couple of the things I am most excited about that I picked up while we were shopping...

A book from B&N that looks like a promising read: Shine by Lauren Myracle.
I also snagged 2 Tarte Lip Tints, the colors I chose were Charmed & Peaceful.
I caved & picked up the NARS Orgasm & Laguna combo.
And I finally bought my first yoga mat, I saw this one at lululemon & I had to have it!

Anyways, I hope to be able to say that I am back into the swing of things with blogging and I hope you've all been doing great lately!

Much Love,
Heather Lee

  2. Thanks Miranda, it feels good to be writing again, lol. The zoo is definitely a great place for a fam, I've also heard that the Point Defiance Zoo is pretty good but I've never been out to that one. :)
