Do You Believe in Ghosts?

I was provided with complimentary tickets for this experience. The thoughts and opinions expressed below are 100% honest and authentic!

Do you believe in ghosts?

Smorgasburg LA: Is It Worth the Hype?

I went, I ate, I conquered.

Every  Sunday from 10am-4pm (winter hours) you can enjoy Smorgasburg, an outdoor LA market filled with food, craft, and beverage vendors.

MUST EAT: Pine State Biscuits – Portland, Oregon

pine-state-biscuits-tasting

Pine State Biscuits was recommended to me by a couple of people (including my new foodie blogger friend!) and it popped up several times while I was researching places to eat in Portland.

Rumor has it that the line is usually hours long but it only took us a few minutes to reach the counter. We also chose one of the locations outside of downtown (don’t worry, it’s still highly rated!). Continue Reading
