My Week in iPhone Pictures (Travels)

As I've mentioned, I haven't been home much and with all the traveling comes a great excuse to take a lot of iPhone pictures this past few weeks. (These pictures here span about two weeks) It's become a fun little travel diary to keep and I thought I'd share with you guys!

The travels started off with a roadtrip to the Oregon coast. It was a 7 hour car ride but our doggies did very well! :)

We spent one of the days at Cannon Beach and the dogs got to run around. We eventually let them off-leash which they loved. (shhh! They aren't supposed to be off leash but they didn't harm anyone :) )

I forgot to take an iPhone pic of the beach and ocean itself so click here and here for pics from my DSLR. It was really beautiful on the coast.

After leaving the coast, J and I spent a few nights in Portland. I love trying out great restaurants whenever we travel so we tried out Pok Pok one night. It was delish and this was the salted plum vodka drink that I got.

Of course we did some tax-free shopping while we were there. I snapped this while in the Pearl District.
98/365: Oregon

And it's now become a regular thing that every time we go to Portland, I buy something from Louis Vuitton. We even got the same sales associate who remembered us from the times before!

Portland, like everywhere else has gone Food Cart crazy but they've stepped it up and have an entire street full of them! In Seattle, you have to chase them down in the different locations and usually it's just one. This was a mecca of food carts! There were so many to choose from but we chose the one with the longest line because, well, that ensures that it's good right?
We were not disappointed with Nong's! They only serve one dish, a Thai "street food" of chicken and rice which is so simple but oh so good! If you are in Portland, I highly recommend stopping by this cart. The wait was worth it! I didn't take a picture of the actual food because this piggy was too hungry and ate it all up before thinking about taking a picture!

Uh, can you tell food is very important to us? haha! We did hot pot the next day. We always do half and half so we can have some relief from the spicy side but dude, gotta love the spicy broth. Doesn't it just look like it's going to burn your mouth?! It's SO good.

After all our yummy eating adventures, I then left hubs at home and began another week on a plane.

Because I am always on an early flight, I need my coffee. I always ask for a coffee and a water.
I travel first class for all my business travel and I must say it has made me quite spoiled. I have been booking flights for our vacations in coach and it makes me cry knowing that I'll be cramped in those tiny seats with no sweet stewardesses that take care of my every need! But we can't afford to fly first class on all of our vacations so I'll just have to deal with it. :)

Breakfast that day was french toast, eggs and sausage. And yes, I do have to say that first class food is better. Maybe because it's served on an actual plate and not in a weird tray?

My entertainment for my flight...

iPod playing Tristan Prettyman

I started "Chasing Harry Winston" on my Nook. I'm not a huge fan of Lauren Weisberger but it was on sale for like $4. So downloaded it before I got on the plane. I use a Prada cosmetic bag to hold my nook. I already had the bag before and one day I was looking for something to protect my nook while it's in my bag and noticed that the cosmetic bag was around the same size. It actually fits perfectly and is now a great Nook protector!

I always take pictures out the window of the plane. I'm fascinated with the mountains and other natural environment that you'd never see from a view like this.

So I finally arrive and what do I do that night? Go bowling! Ack! Not my choice of course :) A company sponsored event but gave it a good try. Still... didn't do too well. oh well!

A quick outfit snap... top and pants by J. Crew, cardi by Marc by Marc Jacobs, boots by Sergio Rossi.
Those black things on the bed behind me are packing cubes. I love them! They keep everything so organized.

Not unexpected but still, I hate waking up to snow. I'm happy to live in Seattle where it doesn't snow very often and when it does, it certainly doesn't snow in April! If you are wondering, I always bring a pair of "snow shoes" to wear outside and then change into my heels at the office.
I'm wearing the Ugg Cardy boots here.

Luckily, the hotel I stayed at brushes off the cars throughout the day/night so when I got to my car it wasn't completely covered.

Even though it's an annoyance, I can't help but admire the beauty of falling snow.

Yay! Back on the plane which means I finally get to go home!

I was on a late night flight (didn't land until midnight) so before it got dark I looked out the window and saw this. It was absolutely gorgeous! I couldn't stop looking at it. I've never seen this exact split/line of sky and clouds.

I'm back home for a couple of days and then back on a plane again. Ah, gotta love my schedule! I'm getting used to living out of a suitcase! ;)

See my first "Week in iPhone pictures" here.

All photos shot by me on the iPhone and edited with the Camera Bag or Hipstamatic App


  1. First thing I have to say is ...YUM shabu shabu. Secondly your pup looks adorable in the back seat on his cozy towel!

    I've never traveled first class and I'm afraid to start. My coworkers echo your sentiments that coach is a horror after one experiences first class.

  2. Such a great photos, I'm Blackberry girl, but I have to admit that iPhone photos are great! Regards!

  3. This is such a lovely post.

  4. Oh! The food alone makes me want to go to Portland now and maybe I can convince J to go and surprise him with a trip to LV too! (He went to school in Oregon and has been gushing about it forever). LOVE that last shot from the plane - I can't believe that was from your iPhone.

  20. PAG - thanks! :) And actually Hot Pot is a bit different than Shabu Shabu. Hot Pot is Chinese/Taiwanese and Shab Shabu is japanese. :)

    Karolinka - you should be able to take the same type of photos on your blackberry too! the iphone camera doesn't have anything too special about it. It's just fun, everyday kind of pictures.

    Mari - Thank you!

    Vivian - yes, you should! I love going to portland every once in awhile. it's such a chill city that it's fun to go and just relax, eat and shop!

    Katie - thank you!

    Bella - i've defaulted to my iPhone camera but I really should get a point and shoot to carry around with me everywhere.

    Allison - thank you so much!

  21. chiclevogueish - haha, it was all very yummy!

    chic n' cheap - i feel lucky to work for a company that allows me to travel first class!

    Jacqueline - yay! glad you got the strap, i think you'll like it a lot!

    WendyB - yup, worked out quite well!

    J - it's fun, you should go!

    holly in heels - soon, i promise!

    April - yay! what did you get? I finished the book and it was pretty good. Not as good as Devil Wears Prada but still a fun read.

    A.Co - thanks girl! Reveal to come as soon as I'm home to take a lookbook picture!

  22. Hey Tiffany! How do you get the Polaroid and/or vintage affect on your photos? Is it an app?

  23. Kelley- it's the "Camera Bag" app that has the polaroid and vintage effects. The "Hipstamatic" app gives the vintage feel + borders. Check them both out, I love them!

  24. how cool! those are really journal/iphone pics!

  25. your dog is beyond adorable! Beautiful pics!!

  26. Hey,
