Kinky Boots struts into Spokane

About last night:  So thrilled to have attended the opening night for Kinky Boots - Spokane at the INB Performing Arts Center

All I can say is, Ohh Lola! Timothy Ware-Hill strutted into the role of coveted role last night and SLAYED it. No real surprise that Ware-Hill was quite comfortable in the fierce footwear as he's been the understudy for the role on Broadway, performing it 163 times.  

We need to alll thank our lucky stars that WestCoast Entertainment delivered this to us in #Spokane, Washington. Seriously, the line up year after year is remarkable. Ahh, this is a must see show. Kinky Boots on Broadway is winner of every major BEST MUSICAL award, including The Tony, the Grammy and London’s Olivier Award. There is no shortage of talent on the national tour. 

The story is about two young men, both with daddy issues that realize they are more alike than their obvious differences would lead one to believe. Isn't that the truth. As the story goes, these unlikely friends find common ground that leads them to collaborate by making fabulous footwear for a niche clientele: drag queens! The show was highly entertaining with cheeky dancing and original music by iconic Cyndi Lauper. The happily-ever-after is that the entire cast learns the meaning of love and acceptance ❤️ 

Of course, Lola and her band of drag queen angels wore it best. #wcebtoadway #kinkyboots

Marys & Mimosas - Booze for Breakfast

Bringing Back The Breakfast Drink                  Marys and Mimosas

Both the Bloody Mary and Mimosa make it socially acceptable to drink before noon.  While this can be a problem if the drinking continues all day, on its own, a Mary or a Mimosa is a beautiful thing.
The Bloody Mary can be a meal in itself - a healthy sounding one at that with a slightly morbid name. Bloody Marys traditionally are made with vodka and tomato juice which is then heavily spiced and garnished. Some say this drink was conceived in Paris in the roaring 20's.  Others trace it back to the 30's as a cure to the dreaded hangover. Either way, this breakfast cocktail has evolved with many twists being added along the way.
The Mimosa, on the other hand, is a mainstay of the classy champagne brunch with a straightforward recipe: champagne or sparkling wine and orange juice. Yes, this is a drink you can make yourself. It was supposedly invented in back in 1925 at a Parisian Hotel. As with most cocktails, there a…

Urban Living - Spokane Style 

This was fun! Our story and loft was featured in the Inlander Health & Home magazine. Thank you to Blythe Thimsen, writer and Young Kwak, photographer. We are also very grateful to Heather Hanley of the Tin Roof for helping us design our space. Our ensuite coffee lounge even made the cover. Additionally, the other featured urban space was one of my downtown listings. ♥️

Laurie and James Allen’s new home in Kendall Yards offers lots of light and quick access to all that downtown Spokane has to offer.

A Vibrant Downtown Lifestyle is Luring Residents Back to Spokane's City Center.
"A chicken in every pot and a car in every garage!" Used in the 1928 presidential campaign, and attributed to President Herbert Hoover, the idea of a car in every garage planted a seed that took root. Over the years, along with it came the idea of the spacious house with a yard, the white picket fence and the happy, quiet life in suburban America.
Fast forward to 2018, and nowadays trading in th…

Art Matters...

Collecting ART is addictive but never regrettable. With ART, the regret I do have is from the pieces I talked myself out of. I have a few sad stories of inexpensive ART I passed on and now the artist's work is spendy. Buying ART is not extravagant or reserved for the wealthy. For me, it's just I have my priorities straight. Think about how much ART you could own if you didn't have cable, that unused landline and you limited the times a barista made your coffee.

When embarking on collecting art - start small. Buying student art is an inexpensive way to get original art. Its like listening to a talented yet unsigned musician in a dive bar prior to making it it big. You very well could be investing in and therefore encouraging the ART world's next big thing. Buying local art enriches your community and supports the local ART scene. Incorporating original ART in your home adds an unmatched warmth, texture and depth to your space.

ART MATTERS. I know my life is richer bec…
