as we enter fall

It is quickly feeling like fall here in Portland. I usually get up early to have my cup of french press before everyone else wakes up. This morning the air was crisp & chilly and I quickly rummaged about for a cosy sweater & woolly socks. In honor of the changing season, here are some new zipper pouches in fabulous colors & prints.  


Sriracha Strawberry Margarita

As a blender / mixologist, combining new flavors and having it work out makes for a very happy day. With Sriracha always in the studio we've been getting creative. Sriracha Sugar is our new favorite Frankie & Coco PDX Kitchenette product. It's been tested and it tastes damn good.  Check out our new summer drink recipe for your happy hour enjoyment.

I love lists and organizing. These zipper pouches are my favorite right now. They are roomy enough to fit all the essentials (cash, cards, keys, phone..lipstick), but small enough to throw into a larger bag or even your jacket pocket. Here are the latest in our shop, made out of amazing Japanese fabrics (compliments of my dear friend Alison). The colors and prints are so lovely and you better grab yours before they are all gone!
