Formulary 55 owner Cory Smith has a creative streak that just cannot be contained. Her popular body care line, Sweet Petula, is going strong and the lines she stocks in her cute Ravenna store are fresh and interesting. She really knows how to keep things feeling new.

Head there this weekend (Friday and Saturday, January 3 and 4) for up to 80 percent off select inventory and pick up a free shea butter crème with purchases of $50 or more.

The holidays sure are fun – but they can also leave you feeling a bit bogged down with all the celebratory eating, drinking and merrymaking. If you’re experiencing a post-holiday drag, may I suggest one of the following beverage cures? These sippers may not be completely work appropriate if you sadly have to head back into the office, but they’ll certainly make your day better.
The shopping is plentiful in Bellevue. Our neighbor to the east has become a primo destination for internationally known designer label boutiques and super high-end stores, many of them in the two major malls that anchor the town.

When I followed up with Dot's owner, Miles James, he told me that the renovation will be a little more involved. In fact, Dot's Delicatessen will close and reopen, becoming Dot’s Charcuterie and Bistrot.
Over the course of a year, Seattle mag editors write countless headlines for stories—hundreds of which are jettisoned for something better during the editing process. But then there are the headlines that we write for imagined stories that haven’t been assigned or written (and perhaps shouldn't be, ever). These usually surface at random during punchy brainstorming meetings. Brangien Davis is still waiting for the chance to use “There Will Be Cud,” on just the right sort of cow story.

I would never turn down a glass of straight Champagne, sparkling wine, prosecco or any of their bubbly relations (well, almost never). If you were to invite me over for New Year’s Eve and serve nothing but bubbles, I’ll happily consume it. However, if you are throwing an end-of-year shindig, and want it to be remembered as the best New Year’s Eve party ever, then you need to take your drink offerings to the next level.
The few days after Christmas is the time when you get to go out and buy something for yourself, guilt-free, with that check from grandma. Go ahead, It's what she wants you to do with it. If it were me, this is what I would get courtesy of Magnolia's White Space.
