Hello, welcome to the latest edition of "This Week in Portland". It promises to be another glorious weekend with warm and sunny weather for enjoying the Portland Rose Festival events, or whatever you have in your plans.

Cleaning Tips

Hi Portland,



I thought this would be a great place where I could share some of my basic housekeeping tricks with other Portlanders, and of course, learn some from you as well. When I started my cleaning business, I quickly realized that not everything you buy in the store will get the job done. Additionally, a lot of these chemicals are toxic and obviously bad for us and for the environment. So, let’s learn how to clean simple, smart, and keep Portland GREEN!!!

Portland Blog: TWIP May 23-May 30

What does the Memorial Day holiday weekend bring to Portlander's this year? Well, sun and lots of it to be sure. A million boats on the Willamette.

SIX WEEKS TO A PORTLAND PILATES HABIT at STUDIO BLUE PILATES!

Pilates isn’t a “quick fix” activity. Yes, in only ten sessions, your body will have changed, but Pilates isn’t just about creating long, strong, lean muscles---It’s also about training the mind, and bringing into consciousness the mind body connection. Therefore, to get the most of Pilates, it’s important to see Pilates as a practice—something that is an essential part of every day.



Visiting Studio Blue two to three times a week for a guided work out will produce the best results.… Continue

Hello, welcome to the latest edition of "This Week in Portland", with our weekly snapshot of weekly Portland events and more.

Stahler's Conversation w/ Guerrilla-Media

A Conversation with Stahler

Stahler is one of those prolific artists that produces quality work time and time again. The type of art he creates ranges from painting and music to digital art and even stickers. In our conversation, he explained to me the world of sticker art that I had no idea existed. Stahler hails from Bismarck, North Dakota. After feeling frustrated that he was in a community that did not readily embrace it's art scene, he made the… Continue
