Today, I walked down Hawthorne Blvd. all by my lonesome. While Hawthorne is a major Portland vein with it's definite quirks, I still keep my guard up when venturing alone. I walked with confidence, and a "don't mess with me" look on my face. I walked straight to Sloan Boutique first to purchase a t-shirt for my weekend Valentine's blog plans. I love Sloan Boutique, and I am definitely going to be venturing there more often to find pieces for my wardrobe. I did my confident walk back up Hawthorne Blvd to Harlow Restaurant, probably one of the most chillest restaurants around. It was such a great experience, and I was totally intrigued.
Harlow is a vegetarian/vegan restaurant on Hawthorne Blvd, and they serve beautiful smoothies, healing tonics and elixirs, tasty coffees, and gorgeous salads and tasty (healthy) pastries.
I ordered "Revival," which has apple-lemon-ginger juice, spinach, blueberries, and spirulina. It is amazing! "revival" is spicy, yet refreshing. I feel detoxed just from this one smoothie! I also ordered the carrot protein muffin, and it was such a joy to eat. I could not get over how pretty my muffin was! All the food here, the charm, the feel was pretty.
I felt super confident on my little solo outing on Hawthorne Blvd. I need to get out more, and these two places, Sloan Boutique and Harlow Restaurant on Hawthorne Blvd. will definitely be a part of another solo outing.
Here is a little sneak peak of the T-Shirt that I got from Sloan. I cannot wait to showcase this T-shirt in a fun style post for Valentine's day.
I feel so accomplished today! I needed a good day off after working so much. Super excited about Valentine's day weekend! Who's excited?
