Portlandia

photo-103

Right after the 4th of July, I got on a jet plane to Portland to attend the World Domination Summit (no, it is not an S & M conference…).  This was my first time in Portland and I was really thrilled to visit because it is the hub for clean and conscious brands (beauty included), creative breweries, food trucks, out of this world pinot noir, insanely delicious food, clean air, a plethora of trees, and very, very interesting people.

Remember my gluten + dairy free eating style I committed to last month? Well, I dropped it like a bad habit in the fine state of Oregon. I couldn’t pass up the cheese and baguettes on this self-indulgent venture.  I’m also a bit obsessed with Portlandia, Fred Armisen, and Carrie Brownstein (um, who isn’t?)…so this mini-getaway satiated my curiosity and I’ll be back for more.

After the conference, I got spend the day with the Alima Pure team at their headquarters.  Super special.  They’ve got some new tricks up their sleeve and I can’t wait to carry one of their products that you will be sure to love and have been searching for! Below are a couple photos from my tour.

Extra special thanks to Heather, Stella, Samantha, and Alima Pure for making this an even more colorful trip!

  1. Hey!
    I have been gluten free for awhile, but just started to eat dairy free.
    I eat this way due to allergies, but was wondering how you were getting along with your dairy-free regimen (before the trip)? What did you substitute in recipes that called for butter? What is your favorite milk substitute?
    Sorry for all of the questions! Getting started with dairy-free eating is quite a challenge!
    You can read about my dairy-free mishap here, on my blog:http://reagansoriginals.com/2013/07/07/pecan-milk-a-complete-failure-in-every-way/

    • Reagan,

      Sorry I’m not going to be of much help since the only dairy that I consume is cheese and when I’m dairy free I just avoid all those faux cheeses because they taste sad to me 😉 Oh, but I do LOVE Earth Balance butter…confession: I probably could eat the whole tub.

  2. Your photos are divine! I’m so bummed I had to miss this event at the last minute but you can bet your gluten-free buns I’ll be there next year. xoxo

  3. Girl, love all these pics! Glad you had such a great time. xo

  4. Thanks for the shout, lovely. You made my WDS extra colorful (and heart filled) too. And BTW, PDX is the GF/DF mecca!

  5. I’m moving to Portland this September! I’m so excited! I’ve been to the lovely city once before and adore it. Can’t wait to make our move and explore the city. Loving your blog and your mission to search for healthy beauty products.

    Much love from http://myomlife.com/
