A Time for Celebration

Author: Cory We didn't intend to be silent here for months. What started off as a few weeks of time off to redesign Endlessly Enraptured, turned into a few months. Much needed time off. Our hiatus was necessary for many reasons but we will relate more on that later. Today, we want to celebrate our rejuvenation and relaunch, and what better way to celebrate than with cake. Jade and...

Bakeshop

We love baked goods. If you have followed this space for any amount of time, then this doesn't surprise you in the least. There is very little in this world that we appreciate more than a perfectly crafted croissant or hand pie: they are comforting, heart warming, and are somehow able to make any day better. We are constantly on the search for the best of...

We Love Woodblock Chocolate

Charley and Jessica from Woodblock Chocolate are amazing. Not just because they are making some of the most delicious and inspiring artisan chocolate in Portland recently. Not just because they are genuine, warm and inviting people who aren't afraid to have a conversation about life in general, life as business owners and life as parents. And not just because they let us sample more chocolate than we could...

Bridge & Burn

When I go to interview people, I try to do my research. I have been doing research on people for a long time, probably since I first discovered the internet when I was a kid. It was this whole place of information that I could find out just about whatever I wanted about any famous person I idolized. Then came MySpace and facebook which allowed...

Xtabay, Our Vintage Safe Haven

We have a history with Xtabay Vintage. Jade heard about this cute shop in Southeast Portland around five years ago and told me that I must take her to it. Being the wonderful boyfriend that I was, I was more than happy to indulge her curiosities for new fashion havens. To my surprise when we arrived at the Xtabay's shop front, I absolutely adored everything they...

Moulagerie

We were so incredibly excited to find out that we were chosen to be members of Portland Fashion Week's Style Collective this year. I'm pretty sure both Jade and I squee'd out loud when we found out. Jade's history with fashion has been much longer then my own. I wasn't exposed to real true adult fashion until I met Jade. I thank her everyday for...

Harding & Wilson

I haven't always been the most fashionable of person. I spent the first portion of my life being dressed by my mother like most children under their teenage years. Even when I had the opportunity to begin picking my own clothes as an adolescent I still made some questionable choices at best. Even after meeting Jade some years ago i still was hesitant to change...

Afternoon Tea with Steven Smith

I've never really been a tea drinker. That said, I've been drinking tea all my life. When I was young and lived in a small logging town in the hills of the northwest, my father would get those big boxes of Ice Nestea, fill up a gallon jar with water and plunge about ten sachets in and let it sit in the sun for hours...

A Tasting at Soter Vineyards

Jade and I love to enjoy things together. When we go to the theater, we usually are either holding hands, have our arms wrapped around each other or are practically in the others lap. When we go out to explore our city, we love to take in every little thing and trade thoughts about what's happening in the moment. When we go out to eat,...

A Peek at Sokol Blosser Winery

I have never been much of a wine drinker. I think the reason for that is because I have never had good wine. I have only recently learned that there is a difference between good and bad wine. The wine I had been exposed to in previous years is the kind that comes in boxes from cheap supermarkets or oversize jugs of  it for pennies...
