Going Green

This month at Bellevue Lifestyle, we bring you our Eco issue in honor of Earth Day on April 22. It’s almost hard to not be eco-conscious living in Bellevue. Surrounded by natural beauty and immersed in an educated and savvy culture where Teslas are the norm, everywhere you go there are three trash cans to choose from (compost, … Continued

Home Sweet Home

“Home is where the heart is.” It’s a common phrase meaning that our homes are a central place in our lives—where we rest our heads, nourish our bodies and make fond memories with loved ones. It’s the epicenter of our worlds, where we start and end each day, and where we keep our most prized … Continued

Arts + Makers

One of my favorite things about the growth of any city is the natural following of the growth in the arts. This winter, The Stranger, one of Seattle’s most popular alternative newspapers, had a cover story suggesting “Bellevue could be the new Williamsburg.” For those unaware of Williamsburg, it’s Brooklyn’s trendiest neighborhood, buzzing with hip restaurants and chic boutiques that … Continued

Happy 2019!

Happy 2019!  The new year is always a time for new beginnings, new opportunity and new goals. Whether or not you set resolutions, it still seems to be a time for reflection on the past year and hopes for the year to come. January is our “wellness” issue and is full of stories to inspire and motivate … Continued

Thankful

As November rolls around, we’re anxiously awaiting the approach of Thanksgiving, the holiday season and time spent with our loved ones. The winding down of the year always brings about a time of reflection for us—remembering everything we’ve done or accomplished in months past; looking back on turkey disaster stories, mornings watching the Thanksgiving Day … Continued

F Is for Foodie

F is for “foodie,” a person with a particular interest in food. Someone who’s always up for trying new places and has a refined but adventurous palate. And this month at Bellevue Lifestyle, we’re all about feasting with foodies as we just scratch the surface of all the fine eats and drinks Bellevue has to … Continued

Fashion Forward

September tends to be associated with a turning point of the year; and that means something different to just about everyone. For sports enthusiasts, this month is start of anticipation and excitement of a new season.  For families, September means the end of summer and the beginning of back to school shopping.  For fashion lovers, it’s the beginning of … Continued

Celebrating Family

When you think of family, what comes to mind? Maybe it’s the people you share your mornings with: the husband or wife who makes you breakfast, the toddler who wakes you up before sunrise or the drooling pup in the kitchen just itching for a full dish of food. Maybe it’s the people you share … Continued

We Made It!

It’s warm, sunny, and the days are longer — it’s finally summer. Hands down my favorite thing about the Northwest is the long, warm summer nights. For most of us, summer is packed with family vacations, camps, outdoor activities and hopefully a few lazy days in there just to hang out and enjoy. This issue is extra special to me … Continued
