We’re Moving to Austin!

Welcome to a new year at Linen and Lavender. New year, new adventures and our next one is gonna be good. We have decided to move to Austin! When I left seven years ago, it was the student life I left behind. A city for schoolwork, dorm rooms, free buses, the student union. The next time around I hope to take full advantage of what the city has to offer: excellent food, walking trails, dog-friendly culture, and hopefully a beautiful texas hill country home (fingers crossed).

Cold, Gray, Rainy, Seattle… and Sushi!

Returning to Seattle in October was bittersweet for me. Sweet because I got to catch up with old friends, celebrate my husband’s birthday with world class sushi, and attend a beautiful wedding. But how could I forget the bitterly cold, wet and gray fall season. It’s like when you forget to take your sunglasses off as the sun goes down. But in fall in Seattle, that’s just what normal looks like. Everything is stripped of color and a dark haze makes you want to curl up in bed and do absolutely nothing.

Prequel to London: A Walking Tour

London is my favorite city in the world. It’s really important to me that I include London in my blog and that I represent it with the love that I have for it. I spent 6 months of my life there. I met my husband there. It was practically the most important time in my adult life, so it’s an important part of me. It’s because of this that I have decided that I must write my guide to London. It’s never going to be THE guide to London, and it’s not so much for anyone else as it is for me. It will be my love letter to my favorite place on earth.

Tulum’s Hartwood: a sumptous jungle escape

Ah Hartwood. The little gem in the jungle. Smoke rising from the wood burning oven. Trees hanging over rustic tables. People chattering about their good fortune to snag a reservation. The name Hartwood is only one that I heard recently through Camille Styles blog. My husband and I so happened to be traveling to Tulum to shoot a wedding video, and so I read about this restaurant, lovingly owned by an expat couple living in Mexico. A celebration of local ingredients and culture.

From my experience, there are two different ways to do Tulum. One, the vegan, boho experience where you stay in an outdoor cabana, do yoga in the morning, and reflect on the universe. And two, the luxury experience where you stay indoors, shop for expensive linen shirts, and eat at Hartwood.
