TLS Vlog #2: Portland


I’m taking you to Portland in today’s episode!

On day one of this three day trip, you’ll meet Tony and Joe from Team Lively while Dana of the Minimalist Baker cooks up some delicious gluten-free garlic mac and cheese.

On day two, I get my hair and makeup done by Madeline Roosevelt and she offers some great application tips and tricks.

We’ll then head to the Fizzle* interview to meet Chase and Barrett. After the interview, I offer some intuition advice during Fizzle’s ‘Office Hours.’

All that interviewing makes me hungry, so we’ll head to one of Portland’s awesome food cart parks for lunch. Afterwards, we’ll bounce around Portland (and may even get an impromptu serenade)!
