In honor of my summer event at the Woodmark, Yappier Hour held on the northside lawn by Beach Café from 5 pm – 7 pm the third Monday of each month through September, I want you to meet my friends staying with me in downtown Kirkland at this pet friendly hotel. I love having them here because they can enjoy everything this pet friendly hotel near Seattle has to offer.

As Director of Barketing, I have the power to put on these events and make the Woodmark the pet friendly hotel near Seattle that it is. I know what you’re thinking, how can I have such an important job and have so much time to greet the guests? The answer…work-life balance.

Kirkland Uncorked! The Public Sip and Sample of Restaurants in Kirklandphoto

Mark your calendars for July 18-20 for this year’s Kirkland Uncorked! The Kirkland Marina will be taken over by wine restaurants near Seattle for wine tastings and food samplings to go along with them. The event is benefiting a great cause for the Homeward Pet Adoption Center beyond all the festivities. This year I will be representing Beach Café, a waterfront restaurant in Kirkland on the campus of the Woodmark Hotel. We have a wide variety of dishes but that's not all, we've got specialty cocktails and a wide selection of beer to fit any mood. You have fun finding the best wine pairings to pair with my dish of citrus battered shrimp, with yellow curry aioli, and green papaya slaw.

Everyone has their preferences so make sure to come by my table to try my dish and let your taste buds decide what to pair it with. Then come try more of my menu items at Beach Café, waterfront restaurant near Kirkland, and pair with a beer, cocktail, or wine. You may surprise yourself! Don’t forget our neighbors upstairs, Bin on the Lake, a wine themed restaurant in Kirkland when you need to change up your selections. Their wine bar will leave you with more choices than you can imagine. Both restaurants give you beautiful views of Lake Washington while bringing tastes of the sea to your table.

Tips for Glowing and Healthy-looking Skin from Still Spa at the Woodmark

Summer is here and with it gorgeous weather that invites us to bare more and enjoy the sun. Your skin’s health will greatly impact your summer look so if showcasing glowing skin in this and future summers is your goal, there are some great ways to stay protected while still achieving a perfect sun-kissed glow.

Insider Tip #1 - Exfoliate Your Skin
Whether you buy a product for in-home use or you visit Still Spa and get one of our popular sugar scrubs, take time to exfoliate your skin. This will not only help you get rid of surface dry skin cells making it look smoother, it will also allow for your full spectrum sunscreen to be evenly distributed. As a result, you will be better protected and your skin will achieved a uniform tone.

Insider Tip #2- Hydrate and Moisturize
Next time you take a stroll down the Farmer’s Market or local berry farm, pick up some extra goodies for a powerful moisturizing mask. Strawberries, with their natural occurring salicylic acid and vitamin C will leave skin smooth and luminous. Simply puree 1/2 cup ripe strawberries with 1/4 cup cornstarch. Apply and wait 30 minutes and then rinse with rose water. A smooth skin will be serve as the perfect accessory to your bathing suit and will also better allow your sunscreen to do its work.

Insider Tip #3 - Reapply
No spa treatment or home skin care regime will fully compensate for dry and tired looking skin resulting from overexposure to the sun. One-time application in the morning is not going to give you full day protection. The key is to reapply. The sun blocking effects of sunscreen will begin to diminish within the first hour of use. Reapplying every couple of hours is vital to full-day protection.


Keep these tips in mind all summer long and enjoy beautiful and healthy skin in this and future seasons.
