Christina Recommends


Blundstone Ankle Boot
Once fall hits, I live in my Blundstone Boots. Blundstones are super comfortable, light weight and durable, making them the perfect shoe to walk to the office or trek around town in. The foot bed molds to the shape of your feet, making them even comfier each time you slip them on. These are my favorite boots for any occasion!
G2 Firebox Stove
Camping Equipment
This stove has been a game changer for cooking on fishing trips and overnight backpacking trips when dehydrated meals just won’t do. The stove is easy to light, stays lit, and cooks food evenly. While it is a bit heavy for longer trips, it offers durability that other stoves often lack.
Glossier Futuredew Oil Serum Hybrid
This product has become my go-to for making my dry skin look bright and dewy even during the winter. I normally mix a pump with my foundation when I want a natural looking glow, but I also find that it looks beautiful on bare skin. It quickly sinks into the skin without leaving an oily residue. A serious game changer!
Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask
Face Mask
Every year, I dread winter because I know it means dry, cracked, painful lips. I've tried balms, salves, oils, and glosses, but nothing has ever done my lips any justice--until I tried the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask. I put this stuff on every night before I go to sleep, and I'm always impressed by how hydrated my lips are when I wake up in the morning. A little goes a long way! I love it so much that I even carry a tub in my bag so I can apply it throughout the day.
Makeup Eraser
The Makeup Eraser has completely eliminated single-use makeup remover wipes from my night time routine. The super soft cloth has one side with short fibers that is perfect for removing makeup, while the other side with longer fibers provides a gentle exfoliation. The best part? The wash cloth can remove an entire face of makeup (even waterproof mascara) with nothing but warm water!
Patagonia Los Gatos 1/4 Zip Fleece
This jacket is my go-to when I want to feel extra cozy. The exterior is made of ultra soft and 100% recycled polyester fleece with a durable water repellent that keeps you dry in light rain. This jacket always comes with me on camping trips, long car rides, and extended vacations. Cute and comfy, my favorite combination!
I love taking hand written notes, but I absolutely hate flipping through the pages of my journal to find what I need months later. Luckily, I found Rocketbook--a resuable(!) notebook that sends my handwritten notes straight to Google Drive so I can easily find what I need. The synthetic blend paper wipes clean with a damp cloth so you don't have to keep stocking up on notepads. Environmentally friendly and easy to use? That's a win in my book!
Static Nails Reusable Pop-On Manicure
When nail salons closed due to COVID, I immediately jumped on the press-on nails bandwagon and I'm so happy I did! Static Nails Round nails have by far been my favorite on my search for the perfect set. These press ons come in a wide variety of fun shades and shapes so you can get the look you want. They typically last on my nails for 3 weeks without falling off when I use their brush on nail glue. Love that!
Vegancuts Monthly Subscription Box
Beauty Subscription Box
I love Vegancuts monthly subscription boxes! Every month, they deliver a variety of vegan and cruelty-free items that I never would've discovered otherwise. Awesome as a gift for a friend, or a treat for yourself.

Leavenworth, WA
A Matter of Taste has every kind of mustard, honey, and salad dressing you could dream of. Stop here if you want to sample 1,000 delicious items, or buy everything online and have it shipped to you.

Best biscuits and gravy in North End Tacoma.

Corina Bakery is the best spot in Tacoma to stop for a slice of rhubarb pie and a latte. Gluten-free and vegan options too!
Craft 19
I bought a dozen of these delicious cookies as a gift for my boyfriend's family, and they did not disappoint! Fantastic delivery, a wonderful team, and knockout flavor combos.
Farm 12
Fiesta Taqueria
Fiesta Taqueria has been my go-to place for street tacos since they opened. The restaurant is small (previously an old Shell gas station) so it might take a decent amount of time to find a seat. But the salsa bar and bean dip are well worth the wait.
Frying Pan Vancouver
Best quick meal in Vancouver! Grab a chicken and rice bowl and take a walk around Stanley Park.
G-Men Ramen
Vancouver is known to have some of the best ramen in general, but G-men is my go-to! Get their spicy ramen on a cold day, and it will keep you warm and happy.
Galanga Thai
Gateway to India
Gray Olive
For those who love a good brunch, Gray Olive is the perfect week day spot. Grab the Kitchen Sink if you like a little bit of everything...eggs, veggies, green onions, sausage, bacon, cheese, AND potatoes included!
Happy Donuts
Heritage Asian Eatery
Indo Asian Street Eatery
Infinite Soups
The possibilities are truly "infinite" with a new menu of fresh soups available every day. One of my favorite spots to grab a hot lunch to enjoy in Wright Park.
I was on the search for the best macarons in the greater Seattle area and hit the jackpot with Macadons. I ordered a dozen and had them delivered straight to my door. The list of flavors and cute holiday prints made it tough to only choose 12! If you're like me and are struggling to make a decision, opt for fruity pebbles, salted caramel, and ube.
Meet in Gastown
Whether you're vegan, or just looking to have a meal you won't feel guilty about, MeeT delivers! Every time I'm in Vancouver, I have to get their sweet chili cauliflower.
Mexico Magico

Thyme Well Spent

Wanna Cupcake
Wigan Pier Restaurant
If you are a lover of beautiful scenery and fish n chips, this is your place! The fish in this fish n chips is the size of a small canoe, and richly flavored. Big portions of good food? Highly recommend!

Yolk's Breakfast
The smoked salmon eggs benedict is to die for! Get it with the truffle lemon potatoes and hollandaise sauce.









Anthem Coffee & Tea
Anthem opened in Puyallup quite a few years back, and has grown into a South Sound staple. This is a great spot to get work done with a black and white mocha.
Bean Tree
If I'm running late to work and NEED to stop for coffee, this place is my go-to. The baristas are fast, the coffee is to die for, and any bad morning can be fixed with pumpkin cheesecake bread.
Skateboard Shop
Bluebeard Coffee Roasters
Truly the best coffee I have had in Tacoma. The indie vibe and excellent coffee makes this the best place in Tacoma to dial down and get work done.
Bubble Tea
Bubble tea fans in the South Sound--stop by Bubbles! Fully customizable bubble teas whether you like hot or iced, milk tea or black tea, fruity or sweet, or tapioca or bobas.
Give Back Box
Donation Center
Los Angeles
I started using Give Back Box during the first wave of COVID so that I could get rid of the growing give away pile in my living room, and I’m so glad that I did. Give Back Box makes it so much easier to donate items to local charitable organizations while repurposing my empty Amazon boxes that would otherwise end up in the recycle.
Bubble Tea
Incredible brown sugar milk tea. They even ask you to customize your drink by amount of sweetness and amount of ice. Get here early in the day to avoid the lines.
Jewel Box Cafe
Metro Coffee
Parkway Tavern
Playback Sports
