Cactus land

Hey hey! I am finally back online for new updates on lifedevivi, It has been a super hectic month because I officially moved from WA to TX💁🏻 Long drive? Yes, for someone who has never been to a road trip before, it was an interesting experience lol.

I spent about a week on the road and drove about 6-7 hours per day on average, the first day was unbelievable, 9 hours straight from Seattle, WA to Redding, CA! 🤣 Hahaha I know guys, I’m very greedy and thought I could make it alive, which I barely did…..

We decided to spend a day in Phoenix during this trip since I have been obsessed with cactus and other tropical dessert plants. I knew Phoenix is a hot place but I underestimated the intensity, it was H-A-W-T. The whole day I was looking for shades with my doggies 😂 and crazy crave for water…

Yelp led me to this cute restaurant called ‘The Dressing Room‘. Despite how much I wanted to sit inside with cool AC, we had to sit outside on the patio because of our dogs, gladly the staff was so friendly and did whatever they can to cool us down. Fresh food and cocktails, great happy hour price! 🙌🏻 Check them out if you’re around Phoenix (@thedressingroomphx).

My goal in this town was to take photos with a gigantic cactus 🌵😎 (If I could bring you home to my backyard, I swear I would lol)

Love at first sight at this tropical midi shirt dress from Zara!

☝🏻 aren’t my babes so photogenic?

 

 

 

 

what’s up Georgetown

One of the most unique places in Seattle? Right below downtown and around the industrial area, there’s a cool district called Georgetown. Often I’ll think about the Georgetown in DC or TX, and this one is a very small area but filled with vintage and hipster stores, which kept me exploring around and had lots of fun shooting!

You’ll notice you entered an unfamiliar scene when driving down to Georgetown, there are lots of warehouses, vintage cars, classic looking breweries etc. One place you should check out is Georgetown Trailer Park Mall, this mall is full of vintage trailers and people selling some interesting stuff there, I got freaked out from ‘human head statues’ hanging everywhere lol… yes I’m dead serious, be prepared! 😂

Kind of want a glamping trip while having these little RVs behind me…..

I have gotten a lot of people asking me about this sunnies! They are from zero UV and you can get them on here.

Launderette Austin

Austin is one of the best cities? Yessss you heard that right❤️ In fact I’m soo in love with this place, the people, the food, the fashion and one very crucial factor, the traffic. LOL!

Growing up back in Hong Kong, traffic is no joke and I just take the subway to go everywhere I wanted. While I get to drive in Seattle, it was not so bad for the first year, then I could feel more and more people are moving to work in Seattle, where it gets to a point the traffic is almost comparable to LA. 🤔 Driving in Austin is another story, sure, traffic exists but it’s understandable, you won’t get angry at all, and people DON’T HONK. How nice?

Everywhere is highway since Texas is gigantic but me likey, cuz then I can drive fast all the time🤣 hehehe, speed up speed up. Yelp and IG are definitely my guides to every intagrammable food spots, I was so lucky to come across to Launderette!

Outdoor seatings are already sooo pretty and the interior just wowed me on cloud 9. (left photo is from citygrammag because I decided to sip outside lol)

I know, I know, it looks like Pinterest cafes. The whole vibe of this spot is just inviting and amazing, color combo in the patio is the goal! 😍

What did I order first? Cocktail, because it solves everything. 😚 The food and drink here are worth it too, it’s not just about the looks….. I can be your trustworthy source when it comes to taste. The deviled eggs are so delicious!

Satisfied! 🤗

Waited until everyone’s gone in this patio so I could have some private moment…. muahahah!

I might look things are at ease and chill, deep down I’m sweating in my soul. 😂 it was over 100F and I sat outside, the Texas heat was hitting me real hard. Hate it and love it.

You Dot This

Happy Hump Day guys! 🤘🏻 It’s mid-week and I hope you guys are having a productive week and catch as many sunsets as you can.

When you see a giant flowers background, you stay there, strike poses, take 100 photos then delete 97 of them….. 😹 I’m kidding because my man is getting better at this! I gotta give him an award yeah?

The classic polka dots are heads turning! Felt like I could make a video with Lana Del Ray’s music in this Kimchi Blue’s dress….
