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.

The good, the bad and the positivity

Hi! It has been a while since I updated a new post on my blog and Happy Late New Year!

To be honest I’ve been feeling sort of uninspired due to the coldness in PNW. *cough cough* (me as a summer girl.) Having the advantage of living in Seattle and only two hours away from BC and Portland, I decided to head down to Oregon for a short ‘end of the year’ trip (tax free is heavenly)! ❄️❄️

First thing I want to bring up is, I’m very impressed by Portland’s infrastructure. There are tons of industrial buildings around the city and a lot of them happened to be cool restaurants and bars. The place above instantly became one of my favorite bars!

The vibe in Victoria though! Needless to say, candle lights and that drink display decor wall won my heart. Staff was very friendly and their cocktails were so unique and refreshing. I ordered same drinks 3 times in a row…. you know what i mean 🍹🤣

Location wise it’s a quiet neighborhood area, so parking is not a problem. It also has an old time photo booth available inside the bar, don’t forget to capture moments! ❣️

I went into this minimalistic Tea Bar spot and bumped into this Insta famous golden baby!😍💋😍 He was soooo fluffy and friendly (kept licking me i know). I felt so bad that I had to leave my doggies in the car because they would go crazy mingling. Lol!

I know, my cheeks are getting chubby in winter. All these fat and carbs are filling me in to withhold this winter. LOL. I still failed because I’m turning on two heaters in my home right now…😂🔥 transforming it into a sauna.

To have a little reflection right here. 2016 has been though a lot of ups and downs, including major changes in my life. I started my first ever lifestyle blog without a route; I graduated college and ended my 21 years of school life; I moved out from that lovely apartment with my bestie and began a new journey; Cars hated me (lol); Work permit was delayed etc.

Many more events and I gotta say.. life happens FOR you, not TO you. Despite a lot of things that could happen, which might drain and sucking the life outta you, It’s all about how you make meanings to these event. If bad things happen, alright take it as you could’ve handled it better or something better will happen for you in the future. Everyone have their stuff to deal with and only the strong ones could restrain and push through the boundaries, be genuinely HAPPY. It’s all about making positive meanings in your head. 😘🌻

Saint Helen’s vibe matches mine

Happy Blackfriday ladies and gen! I hope all of you had a wondering gathering dinner with fam and caught some great deals shopping. For me, big sale doesn’t excite me as much as before because when you want that thing so much, you’ll buy it no matter what price.. right? 😎 #moneyspender #bigsaleisstillcool

Last weekend I paid a visit to Saint Helen’s Cafe near UW Village, I have been longing to try this cute cafe out for a long time! 😉 It’s surprising that I used to hang out at UW Village all the time and never noticed this place… it was right across the village. Weather was pretty bad so I forgot to take a picture at the outside hehe.

This cheese plate definitely deserves a close up shot. See how beautiful it looks? The jam, the apricot, the cheese…. Everything combined as a perfect picture. 😋 And of course, this tasted so good too. Blue cheese always has my heart.

This little marble table on the side tho. Server knew I was going non-stop photo shooting.. so she gave me this beautiful marble side table to put my camera on the big table. How accommodating ? 💋 Should I get this for my room?
