Season 1 Episode 4

Welcome back for our next series of friendsfavz Web Show. On this episode we will meet Jackie from The Bistro at the Hollywood Schoolhouse in Woodinville Wa.

I came upon this charming little Bistro when I was out wine tasting and needed a place to stop for some nourishment. I was pleasantly surprised by the variety on their menu, but most of all I fell in love with the atmosphere and their friendly staff. I have since brought several different groups of girlfriends to have lunch while out wine tasting, as The Bistro is right in the heart of the Woodinville Wine Country.

The Bistro was the host site to our second live filming with our studio audience and I must say it was a smashing good time. We sampled some of the foods from The Bistro, had wine tastings from Market Vineyards and visited with Cheryl and Cindy from HotFlash Designs.

To top of the evening we had drawings for gifts from each presenter as well as gifts given by The Refinery Salon and Stephanie Richter’s Mary Kay Business. We had many happy ladies who had their name drawn for a gift basket, a gift card to The Bistro, an original art piece by HotFlash Designs and so many more fun gifts.

I hope you will share this with your girlfriends as more likes on Facebook, twitter, and You Tube are always appreciated and creates a lot of excitement.

Look forward to sharing Market Vineyards with you on our next episode of friendsfavz Web Show!

I came upon The Bistro one afternoon while I was out discovering new wineries and needed a bite to eat. I was so happy to see a new spot in Woodinville and was pleased by the variety on their menu. The french onion soup is fantastic and I have been back several times just for the soup!

friendsfavz, Blog Challenge – Passion

friendsfavz, Blog Challenge – Passion

Today Alex Beadon is challenging us to dig deep and explore the reasons why we are blogging. What is our passion and what is our story. I ventured outdoors in the wind and rain for some inspiration!

Everybody has a story and my blogging story starts with a transition in life. It is a  time where I was reevaluating my purpose in life and what my new “job” would be as an empty-nester. I thought my transition from mom to Karen would be easy. As time would tell, it is not so easy.

I had to evaluate what I thought were my strengths: being a mom, having fun, being creative, meeting and empowering new friends,  and helping others feel beautiful. Put this all together and I came up with creating a video blog and web show for women. I am hoping to empower women to feel more beautiful and share our favorites! And to have lots of fun along the way!

Do you have a passion? Would love to hear what you are passionate about in the comments below.

Come Feel Beautiful with us at friendsfavz!
