7728 SE 7th Ave, Portland, OR 97202. Offered at $525,000.

This one pulled my heart strings. Lovely garden with a greenhouse, beautiful finishes, and just a really warm feeling overall. The garden was designed by the owner, who was previously the education director of the Portland Japanese Garden. I love the secret storage through the closet. (Contact me for more info, this one is not coming up on our company site.)

Kure Juice

Kure Juice is my favorite juice place! I almost always get the Extra Mile. It’s made with coconut milk yogurt, coconut meat, kale, almond butter, coconut water, honey, and ice. So delicious. Of course there are many other flavors on the menu.

Don’t forget to pick up a card. After you collect 75 points, you get a free juice!

I’ve always gone to their 4409 SE Hawthorne location, but they have other ones as well.

Full menu and location information available on Kure’s web site.

Village Merchants

Village Merchants might be my very favorite second hand shop in Portland. This is mostly because they have a great balance between coolness factor and price. (Cheaper places have a bunch of junk, but lots of places with cool stuff are too expensive for second hand.) They are at the corner of SE Division and 41st. Here’s their page for more info.

Logik the Salon

If you’re in SE Portland and looking for a hot new hairdo, check out Logik the Salon. My friend and stylist Kim Wright is the owner/operator. It’s worth stopping in just to see what color her hair is!

She does a great job with cut and color. I went in the first time with a yellowish bleach job that I had paid way too much for elsewhere. She was able to fix it and hit a gorgeous platinum blonde color for me. Awesome. She’s also not afraid to try something unexpected or new. And, in addition to Kim, there are other talented hair stylists in her salon too.

One of my favorite things is that I can make appointments over a Facebook chat! So easy. Visit Logik’s site.

50 Licks

It’s been so warm in Portland this summer, but luckily we have a lot of delicious ice cream stores to try! 50 Licks is just around the corner from Portland Digs. They have very creative flavors that are a bit more subtle than similar artisanal ice cream shops. I like subtle. I tried jasmine tea ice cream, a coconut saffron vegan flavor, and ended up purchasing Tahitian vanilla with bee pollen as topping. Yum. I got it in a cup out of habit, but then found out that their waffle cones are gluten-free! She gave me one for free since I was so excited about that. Also fun, is the art on the walls. They are common pastoral landscapes that you might find in a second hand store, but someone has painted in giant ice cream cones.
