Our New Year’s resolution to relax isn’t going so well. Our job is driving us crazy and the kids are still, well, kids. We need some Zen ASAP! Thankfully we know just the place.
The Yoga Tree on Fremont is the perfect spot to find the light on any gray Seattle day. Classes explore a range of approaches and practices (from Hatha and Vinyasa to Nidra), and the studio invites participants of all levels to test their strength—both physical and mental. Special workshops often spice up the curriculum, too, with topics like “The Paradox of Practice – Focus on Balance Poses,” “Advancing Your Practice: At the Edge of Evolution” and “Vibrant Body, Warm Heart.” Students can purchase sessions as part of a series (for example, through an unlimited monthly pass), or they can drop in for individual classes.
So if you’re feeling the need to stretch your body and mind, Yoga Tree is just the place to come back to your center. In this harried world, couldn’t we all use some time on the mat?

Even though we graduated from college with a degree in art history, we definitely have an inner business power-house. Had it not been for the unadulterated idealism of our early 20’s, we probably would have a corner office in some high-rise downtown. And despite our arty side, we’re still pretty pragmatic decision-makers when it comes to beauty. We look for products that are effective and healthy—no fluff.
Skincare 300 in Ballard is our destination for relaxing, yet results-driven facials, skincare treatments and waxing. They use Cell Renewal Systems, a paraben-free botanical product line formulated for effective wrinkle-reduction and smooth, radiant skin (don’t miss the deep-exfoliating pineapple enzyme peel and the nurturing honey toner). The process includes a cleanse and scrub, enzyme peel, aromatherapy scalp massage, complete upper-body massage, a masque with infrared light or calming cold globes, and a final hydration with serum and moisturizer for décolletage, face, lips and eyes.
So here’s the bottom line, Suite 300 Skin Care is all about immediate results… And we don’t need a business degree to figure that out.

A least once a year we dog-sit for our best friend’s best four-legged friend. The dog is a bit Lassie meets Cujo—loyal and precious in the daytime, but startle her during a midnight potty run and she will try to kill you.
We love this dog, but every time we’re alone together chaos ensues. Our latest adventure resulted in her snapping her leash and running straight into the water at Lincoln Park. After her swim, we needed to clean her up stat! Thank goodness for the Wash Dog in West Seattle. It’s a complete spa for pets, offering everything from a basic wash and dry to pet perfumes and nail appliqués—too fun! The space is a chic as “people” spas. You can clean your own pet or hand her over to the professionals.
Since we’d had enough alone time for the day, we let the pros tackle our furry friend. In no time she was washed, dried, combed, and ready for the next adventure!

Weird things have been happening lately – it’s been a strange time. Mercury in retrograde? Are our chakras out of alignment? We can’t figure it out and we need a major fix!
Luckily (or is it fate?) we found Erika Lynn of Authentic Path, a rare alternative healer who does life changing energetic programming. She is a healer that deals with cancer, money issues, relationship changes and are just the folks we need to fix our tilt-o-whirl energy and put us back on the right positive path.
Sure, we love Fashion Week, and we love the Oscars – but mostly we love our local boutiques! Which is why we really lurve SeattleBoutiqueBlogspot.com. It totally dials us in to our local shopping scene.
Like us, since 2008 Seattle Boutique Blogspot has been supporting and promoting independent designers, boutiques and businesses. Featuring designer spotlights, shopping tips, fashion news and a current Seattle Fashion Directory, Seattle Boutique Blogspot is a must-read Seattle style blog.
Our best friend is on a mission. In 2013 she’s upgrading and redesigning everything about herself — from her hair style to her nail polish to her website, including her branding on social media, blogs and everything online. It’s a new year and total new look! She is going to be personally and virtually savvy.
Her secret? Katie Kay of Virtually Savvy and she can assist you too as your techy virtual assistant and/or meet with you and provide consultation and training. Hooray!
