Jennifer Herrema

1 Nov

I have a long standing crush on Jennifer Herrema. So it makes me happy to see her all partnered up with lovely babe Kurt Vile for this “Before They Make Me Run” Stones’ cover. Give a listen on Pitchfork.

I haven’t given her new project, Black Bananas, much attention yet – but you should right here.


Portland Garment Factory

26 Oct

I had the honor of being asked to model for Portland Garment Factory‘s launch of HouseLine. Britt Howard and Rosemary Robinson know how to produce a quality crafted garment from start to finish. Pair this with their killer sense of style and you have a HouseLine, woman’s basics (aka the must haves) with a splash of trendsetting pieces.  

Photographer Amanda Smith was on the scene and caught some great backstage moments (the legs!) and the runway show from start to finish. Check out her pictures here!

Sean Spellman

23 Oct

In addition to being such a sweet dude, Sean Spellman of Quiet Life is really great to listen to.

Check out this video from Natural Beardy and then catch them on tour with Dr. Dog through November.


Happy Birthday Heart Roasters!

20 Oct

Being a NE-ster who enjoys the company of many SE-sters, Heart is the perfect meeting place. Delicious coffee, roasted in house, delightful staff (truly, I love them all!), great music selections, appealing and comfortable atmosphere… and gluten free baklava muffins! Today is Hearts 2 year anniversary and to celebrate they are throwing an all day party! Come and enjoy celebratory beverages (hint hint), killer jams from in house DJ Katherine Zimmer, and the company of your fellow lovers of Heart!!

Whiskey Wednesdays

6 Oct

So it appears we have a crush on Jake Ray. Who wouldn’t. Get down to the Landmark Saloon on Wednesdays already – and make Portland feel like a night at the Redder (aka The Red Rock –  my hometown Iowa bar).

So according to this Portland is one of the most “oversexed” cities in America. Damn! Because last I heard Portland was more buttoned up than bottoms up.

Anyone get surveyed for this one? Anyone agree?

ps. i love nicki. xo
