Flora Recommends


Archer & Olive
If you're into Bullet Journaling, highly recommend Archer and Olive notebooks. The pages are thick, so if you want to get super creative, it allows for all types of ink with no bleed-through. Pic: page from my bujo (using Archer and Olive acrylic pens)
CHI Ceramic Flat Iron
Hair Straightener
Best straightener ever! I've had mine for a decade. I should probably upgrade, but it still works perfectly. When it dies, I'll replace it with another CHI.
Cuchen Rice Cooker
Rice Cooker
I was gifted model WHA-LX1000IDUS - love it! All types of rice cooking setting, including how sticky you want it. It cooks my rice perfectly every time. The only negative is that it's huge and takes up a lot of space in my small apartment.
Dyson Airwrap Styler
Hair Styling Tool
Love this set! Curls nicely with minimal damage to your hair. Comes with a couple brushes as well.
Love my standing desk from Flexispot. I have the EC1 model (48"). Relatively easy to assemble, works super well. It is quite heavy though, so I'd suggest enlisting some help if you can.
Glossier Brow Flick
Eyebrow Color
My favorite brow product ever! You'll need some patience at first because it's a fine tip brush and you'll need to fill in individual faux brow hairs to give you a more natural look. Stays on all day long, through oily skin + sweaty workouts. Game changer!
Gourmia Digital Air Fryer
Air Fryer
If you don't have an air fryer in your kitchen, you are missing out. It is a total time saver and perfectly cooks just about everything. I've thrown in potatoes, fish, chicken, asparagus, broccoli, and more. Pro tip: opt for one that's easy to clean! (The one linked here is not.)
Humanscale Ballo
Office Chair
I've been using this Humanscale Ballo stool for 4-5 years now. Since switching to it, my lower back has not had any pain due to sitting too long. It's the perfect height for me (5' 2") and keeps me sitting up straight most of the day.
Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask
Lip Balm
There's already so many great reviews about this product. Just came to also sing praises about how soft and hydrated it makes my lips!
Password Manager
LastPass is great for the most part! Keeps my passwords and secure notes in order. Easy to use on mobile. Customer service responds quickly as well. On two occasions, however, the websites on all of my passwords disappeared and then randomly showed up again. Not sure what happened there.
Absolutely LOVE MUJI gel pens. They glide smoothly and cleanly over paper and come in a bunch of colors and a couple of tip sizes. Love the minimalistic and clear design too! If you're a bullet journal-er, look no further for pens!
Nuun Hydration
Supplement Bar
This electrolyte sports/hydration drink seriously does wonders. I'm pretty sure this was made for athletes but it sure works for any occasion where you need a little extra hydration... like when I've imbibed one too many glasses of wine. Pop one of these babies into a glass of water and voila, you have yourself an effervescent delicious drink to help curb those hangovers LOL. Also fun to know it's Seattle made!
Smith I/O Mag
Ski Goggles
Recently used my Smith I/O MAG goggles on a trip to Steven's Pass and love them! Kept the reflection of the sun in the snow out of my eyes and didn't fog up. Fits comfortably on my face (I specifically have the Asia/low bridge fit) and stays put on my helmet. Comes with 2 different lenses (low light and everyday).
So Phresh Grass Seed Cat Litter
Cat Litter
Pros: clumps well, to no dust, eco-friendly, good odor control (for #1, not so much #2) Cons: pricy, lightweight so it tends to track more but a litter mat has been helping Grass seed litter is definitely on the more expensive side but it's totally worth it for the pros listed above.
Sony WH-1000XM4 Noise Canceling Headphones
Great quality noise-canceling headphones that are super comfortable. Lots of features that include speak-to-chat (when you start talking, the music stops playing), touch control and more. Perfect for drowning out sounds within your home when you're WFH!
Tech21 Case
Phone Case
I am notorious for breaking my phones because I drop them so often. So far this case has been a lifesaver.
Vuori Joggers
Do yourself a favor and buy a pair of joggers!! My softest and comfiest pair of pants.
IDK what I would do without my Waterpik. It was a lifesaver when I had braces and is still a lifesaver to this day. Even after I've flossed, the Waterpik will get all the food I thought I'd already flossed out (yes I do both every night). Always get compliments on my teeth from my dentist and hygienist!

Special Occasions

Cameron Catering
I've worked with Cameron Catering for several years and they've always delivered! Loved working with Suzanne and Amy M.!
Elm Candle Bar
Such a cute candle store! You get to pick out your own scents (there are a ton!) and make your own candle in store. They now also have DIY kits to take home or gift!
Farestart Catering
Used FS a few times now for events--they're most of the time on top of things! I'm giving them a pass though because of how awesome their organization is and it's their students that prepare the food!
Flowers Just 4 U Florals and Gifts
First off, this is a black and woman-owned business, so you know I had to support! Ms. Mary and her team are amazing. I requested a last minute bouquet and boutonniere for a not-wedding mini quarantine ceremony and they had it ready within a couple of hours. They were beautiful!
Gourmondo Catering
Great options, easy checkout, on time delivery!
Hot Mama's Pizza
Go to spot for pizza! Probably best known for their pesto pizza, but in all honesty, everything is so good here. We usually order an 18" pie - all for $20! Customer service is also great.
Kaspars Special Events and Catering
I organized an event at MOHAI and Kaspars was one of their preferred caterers. They were easy to work with, responsive, and pulled off an amazing 300+ person event. Their private tasting was what sold us ;)
La Cocina Oaxaquena
BEST mole in town. My other favorite is the ceviche.
Madres Kitchen
Kristen and Heather are the dynamic duo who run Madres Kitchen. I worked with them along with their amazing sales/events team for 8 years at my old job. Amazing, quality food that's sourced sustainably.
Museum of History & Industry
I love MOHAI. So many interesting factoids about Seattle and its history. I've also run a banquet dinner event here. It's a beautiful space. Only downside is you can't start setting up for an event until after they've closed.
Seattle Cucina
Cooking Class
Seattle Cucina hosts cooking classes, parties, and camps primarily for kids but we recently reached out to see if they'd host a private company class and they were more than willing! It was super fun and the gnocchi alla romana we created was delish. They were quick to respond, easily accommodated our needs, and were really affordable! If not for a company activity, definitely check them out for your kiddos or yourself (if you can't cook/don't like to cook like me)! It's more fun when someone walks you through it! 😅
