Welcome to the first post on my new Blog! Wanted to start with a little bit about me, and what I'll be posting here!
My name is Laken, and I am in my mid-twenties. I moved to Seattle recently with my boyfriend and our dog, an Australian Shepherd. Prior to Seattle, we were living in Colorado, first in the Fort Collins area (northern Colorado) and later on the south side of Denver. Colorado is a beautiful place to live, with so much to do! My boyfriend and I are avid beer drinkers, so days off would often find us trying out a new brewery, or returning to visit one of our favorites. We also really love to hike, and would often go up to the mountains when we had the time. I am excited that Seattle is perfectly poised to have access to not only the mountains, but also the mass of lakes, bays, and the Pacific Ocean itself that are all within a reasonable distance from Seattle. We have never lived directly in a city before, and here in Seattle, we are right downtown. So far, I am enjoying the opportunity to see what city living is like, although it is very different from what we are used to! We sold our cars upon moving here, with the plan to walk or take public transportation to most places. We may rent a car on the weekends when we want to go camping up in the mountains, or take a trip up to Vancouver island.
I will be blogging about our experiences in Seattle, places we travel to, my fashion thoughts and suggestions, and, of course, food! I love to cook, and am always posting photos of the meals I cook on Instagram. I am a vegetarian, so most of the things I cook are without meat. However, my boyfriend still eats meat, and I often cook meat for him.
I have worked in the retail clothing industry for my entire career, which is where my love of fashion has come from. I like to follow other bloggers on Instagram to see what everyone else sees as current fashion trends, and to get outfit ideas from them! I'll be posting links to clothing items I purchase on here as well, so if you like something, you can find it too!
