An Interesting Park Transforming From An Industrial Sludge To Family Fun!
I reckon the Gas Works Park is one of the very best things to do in Seattle, mainly due to its unusual history of transformation. Located on the north end of lake union, you will find one of the unique parks in Seattle. Gas Works Park was once a 21-acre industrial area that was then transformed into a recreational complex in 1975. The park features an industrial plant-turned kiddy area, an aesthetic lake, and a sublime picnic area.Read full story

Learn Professional Coffee Making With The Best In The Bussiness In Just 3 Hours!
I am a huge coffee lover who roughly consumes coffee 2-3 times a day. Since I am such a heavy coffee consumer, I visit many cafes, which gets too costly at times.

A Once In a Lifetime Experience Getting Up-Close With the Majestic Orcas
Hands-down it was one of the most exciting yet pleasurably peaceful experiences. My husband and I had an adventurous boat ride and were so fortunate that we even got a chance to see these magnificent creatures in all their glory. Our captain was a charming guy and was one of the main reasons why our boat tour turned out to be an entertaining yet very informative tour. I had never been on tour like this before and was naturally anxious to book one with any touring company, but choosing The Seattle Orca Whale Watching touring services was the best decision. Getting to watch these giant sea creatures in their natural habitat was such a breathtakingly beautiful experience. Believe me; it was a billion times better than watching orcas perform a few tricks while being held captive in a small pool at sea world. It was a spectacular sight watching the orcas in their habitat where they belong, free from trainers and instructors in their natural charisma. The Seattle orca whale watching made this already fantastic tour even better. Their incredibly informative guide kept us amused with all the other marine life and shared some astonishing facts about them even when we couldn’t spot the orcas. Even during the hard times of Covid-19, they managed to give us a safe experience by implementing the CDC guidelines. In short, exceptional tour services, highly qualified staff, and an unmatchable experience.Read full story
Get Your Hands On A Scintillating Customized Cup!
My sister is a hardcore fan of the Friends show, and when she got a new house, I wanted to give her a Friends-themed gift so that it would be a fun way to remember the show and, of course, me. In search of such a gift, I got to the only reliable place I knew, and that was Etsy. They're a huge online shopping store with an extensive collection of various items, so I was sure that I'd be able to find my dream gift here, and it turned out I was right. The moment my eyes landed on this Cup while scrolling through many others, I knew right away that this is what I want. It's a comical way to tribute the Friends show and an even better souvenir. The text on the mug was a sweet way to tribute the show's legacy in a fun way. Like the title of all the show episodes, this mug supports the same text but with a little fun twist, and the best thing that it's printed on both sides. I received the package on time and in secure packaging. The best part I got the same reaction from my sister as I was hoping for when I gave this House owner mug to her. She loved it and has been using this mug daily now.Read full story

Check Out The Aesthetic Hummingbird Flower Metal Wall Art At Etsy!!
As my husband and I bought our first house together, I couldn’t resist the urge to decorate our home, but with the current Coronavirus pandemic, that goal nearly seemed unattainable. With the stores closed and markets shut down as per lockdown orders, I lost all hope in decorating our house until I stumbled upon ETSY’s website. I was thrilled to finally found a one-stop shop to decorate my house as per my taste. Etsy is a huge online marketplace with products ranging from furniture to art supplies and from home décor to clothing, but the piece that captured my attention was this elegant Hummingbird Flower wall art. Its rustic color and extra-durable metal structure just seemed perfect for our front door. The moment my eyes landed on this piece, I wanted it right away, so I ordered it from the website.

Revamp Your Garden Courtesy The Plant Store!
I'm in love with the immense variety of plants here at the Plant Store. This neighborhood plant shop may not be that big, but the versatile collection of plants from the floor to the ceiling makes up for that. The Plant Store owner is an absolute gentleman with vast knowledge about plants and always eager to help. I have bought most of the plants for my garden from here, and I can tell you through my experience the store offers one of the most competitive prices and excellent quality plants. I appreciate Miles for taking care of my plants when I left on a trip. He took such good care of my plants that they seemed healthier when I got them back. Miles also offers classes related to gardening and planting, which are helpful for newbies like me. I have attended a couple of classes and have always found Miles energetic, helpful, and eager to share knowledge. I have learned so much about adequately taking care of plants like proper lightning, fertilizers, etc.!Read full story
Here’s How To Deal With Conflicts With Parents! Possibly A Few Things No One Has Ever told you!
Like all other people in the world, I’m also the one who had many conflicts with my parents. Whether they are my choice of clothes, where we spend our vacations, where we should dine out, and my proposals, I’ve had a conflict with them from every tiny to the big thing. But conflicts are the things that get along. So, we must try to put an end, or start accepting or dealing with the conflicts with our parents. The most important thing is respecting their point of view. If they disagree doesn’t mean they are wrong or you are wrong. It’s merely because of the generation gap, your, and their different experiences. First, I think carefully about the reason for conflict and respect their point of view. I always avoid maintaining stubborn silence. I guess if it’s necessary to communicate my concern, I start with respectfully addressing it. I believe the justification and understanding made with respect and politeness helps a lot. Other times I do avoid arguments when it isn’t worth it, accept the conflict, and move on. But, amidst any of the conflicts, I try to be considerate and think about how they might feel or may get hurt. I respect their concerns whether they agree or disagree, and this makes life easier. Lastly, forgiving myself and my parents for any conflict I’ve had is important because this thing helps me move forward and be at peace with myself.Read full story
A Very High-end Shopping Mall With Delicious Foods To Compliment!
I come here mostly with my friends for movies or food and not much for shopping. The reason is that some of the stores are so high-end that you simply can’t afford to go there shopping all the time. If I’m being honest, I have always found this mall empty maybe that’s because it’s too big or maybe because of these over-the-moon expensive brands that only a handful of people can afford. The parking can remain an issue sometimes as we were once stuck in the garage wanting to come out for almost 10 minutes. At present, Pacific Place allows only a limited number of visitors and has strict Covid-19 safety guidelines in place. Most of the shops in Pacific Place offer online shopping, and only a few offer in-store shopping. This shopping mall is usually used for dining out or for movies and not as an actual shopping mall. The reason for that is its costly and expensive up-scale branded stores. I’d recommend Pacific Place as an enjoyable place for a friend’s outing but not as an affordable shopping mall.Read full story
Red Chair salon, the best salon you would ever go to
A few months ago, my sister's engagement was finally planned. Now the first task was to book a salon for my sister and me. I chose Red chair salon and spa because of the reviews and compliments I had heard from people. The atmosphere there was so wonderful. Their exciting feature is the red chairs used in the salon, which complements their name. All the ladies working there were sweethearts listening and doing what we wanted. I expected that it would take a lot of time to get a few services, makeup, and hair, But I was wrong. We got done with all of this in just a few hours. I was glad to know they use sulfate, paraben-free quality products that are a plus. The place had a great vibe that made us feel extremely comfortable. The staff was cooperative as well. My sister and my makeup looked flawless. It stayed till the party was over. I showed them a picture of the hairstyle I wanted, and it turned out the same. My sister was also looking gorgeous, and the staff rightly so made her stand out. It made me look so confident and beautiful. It was such an excellent decision that I still feel delighted to choose the red chair salon for my sister's wedding. We were so satisfied.Read full story
Alki beach, One Of The Best Beaches For You To Chill At!
I love to visit different beaches, so a few weeks ago I thought of visiting Alki beach with my friends. The plan was due for a long but when we finally arrived there, and it stole my heart. It was a bright and sunny day when we visited it. There were a couple of people already present there chilling around. Despite the hot weather, cold breezes were still blowing around. The sandy area was where we had a little picnic enjoying food from the nearby restaurants. Various restaurants were surrounding the beach area, and we also went in to enjoy some drinks and quesadillas, and they were yum. The fresh, blue water was cold enough to step in, and I had a great time. I tried several activities available there, including Paddleboards, bike rentals that we ride up and down the front of the beach while taking in incredible sights. We also experienced sunshine with some different activities and quality food and drink. On our way back, we took a water taxi that was a much easier way of moving from Alki to Seattle, avoiding all traffic. The whole experience was so wonderful.Read full story
Check Out An Exceptional Museum With An Amazing Collection!
The Asian Art Museum has a brilliant collection of art pieces in its permanent gallery. It’s a beautiful celebration of modern-day Seattle and its versatile culture. As an art lover, I love visiting this museum, but last week I was so bummed to find that the museum was shut down temporarily. The management told me that the museum will be opening again in May; until then, I would have to reminisce about my past times at the museum. The last time when I visited the Asian Art Museum, I had a great time looking at the Wyeth Exhibition. It was just fascinating and a treat for my eyes. The building of the museum itself is just an art piece, and the museum staff does a remarkable job at keeping the building perfectly clean. The only problem I face when visiting this museum is parking. On one occasion, I had to take three rounds of the parking lot to find an empty spot for my car, but I guess it’s not their fault because the museum is so famous that everyone wants to visit every once in a while. I can’t wait for the Asian Art Museum to open up to visit it and that’s why I’ve already booked my tickets. Have you?Read full story
Great Food, Awesome Views, And Perfect Ambience At Matt’s In The Market!
My husband and I are a couple of foodies, and one of our most favorite restaurants to fulfill our cravings is Matt’s In the Market. It’s a little Gem of a Pike Place Market in Seattle. We’ve been going to the Matt’s in the MarketMarket for ages and love everything on their menu. The seafood they prepare has no match in the entire MarketMarket. My absolute favorite food out of their menu is Brussels sprouts. They’re delicious and tempting. The staff is always happy, and I cannot recall any dull encounters with the waiters or other staff. It’ll be a lie to say that food is the only thing that persuades me to eat at Matt’s In the Market because the views it offers just fill you up with peace and serenity. Last week we took our friends for dinner at Matt’s in the market and had a blast there with finger-licking food and serene views. We had to make reservations earlier because, as per covid-19 guidelines, the restaurant only allows limited dining. We ordered a Crab Sandwich, Short Rib Special, and my most favorite sprouts. We didn’t have to wait long for our food and got it in no time. Everything was fresh, and the flavors were just oozing out of them. We wrapped up our night with some drinks and sang away the worries. I was so glad to book us a place at Matt’s in the Market though we had to follow the strict Covid-19 guidelines; it was so worth it.Read full story
