The MK Team jet setted out to Portland, Oregon to be a part of the Blush Beauty Bar holiday shopping event, a private shopping experience full of luxe items and non-stop goodies! And while we’ve been to a variety of other locations on the globe, this one would be a first! So what’s so cool about the acclaimed “city of roses” that we were not aware of?
We made a short list of some the things we are hoping to come across during our mini business trip:
1) International Rose Test Garden. Located in Washington Park, this 4.5 acre landscape houses over 7,000 rose plants of approximately 550 varieties.
2). Mt. Hood. What’s to say about this flawless natural highlight, only that it is definitely a sight to see and a great place to try on your hiking boots.
3). Powell’s City of Books. Haven’t really heard this name before but it is supposed to be the largest independant chain of bookstores in the world, with the flagship store being located in good ol’ Portland.
4). Voodoo Donuts. Definitely not on our healthy food list, but this location attracts a lot of people for their unique flavorings and in-store wedding ceremonies.
5.) Movie Brewpubs. Lately, going to the movies seems to be a pretty expensive venture, but in Portland, several of these movie brewpubs offer couches for seating, food and house-brewed beer on tap and it only costs about $3 to see a movie!
Portland is also known for being one of the greenest cities in America and for an amazing selection of Indie music and breweries. We can’t wait to explore this beautiful city. If you are in the area, make sure to stop by Blush Beauty Bar, say hello and indulge in a few shopping treats.
