I am a Spanish girl who came to Portland four years ago following the love of my life. I work in public accounting #CPA, i love my beautiful rescued dog Maui and I am really into fashion. As I am done with my studies and finally starting to discover more places in Portland, I would love to share all my adventures with you. I hope you will like them!

Success occurs when your dreams get bigger than your excuses. For the last four years i had to balance my busy schedule at work with my studies. During that time i sometimes found really hard to find motivation to come back from work and keep myself focused on the books. So one of my motivations was the classic Chanel as a reward for myself whenever i passed my tests. This year it finally happened!! I passed all my exams and my husbands (who suffered with me the long hours of study and weekends in front of the book) surprised me with this beautiful bag. I am really excited because this was always my dream bag and because it represents a big success on my life and my career. As they say – don’t dream about it, work for it and it will happen!

Babes In Portland – An Expansive Lifestyle Experiment
We’re Mari (the Norwegian) & Shelley (the Texan). We’ve left the 9-5 behind. Now we’re full time explorers, micropreneurs and women on a mission – to track our greatest sense of joy and contribution.

How do we use our days when money is not in focus? When all expectations are set aside, where does our energy naturally flow? What does our life look like when we construct it in freedom – with ease and while contributing in ways that make us feel happy and connected?

We’ve just started our ‘expansive lifestyle experiment’ in Portland. We are full time explorers, micropreneurs and women on a mission – to track our greatest sense of joy and contribution.

Everyday Runaway
Everyday Runaway
Everyday Runaway is a travel, wine and lifestyle blog about my adventures in the Pacific Northwest and beyond.

I named my blog Everyday Runaway because I don’t believe you need to quit your job, sell your belongings and live out of a backpack to “runaway” from the mundane, weekly grind of everyday life. Don’t get me wrong, I envy those who have the capability and confidence to take that leap – however, for most of us, that’s not a sustainable lifestyle. So this site caters to the everyday Joe’s and Jane’s who want to make the most of what they have – be it weeks or simply weekends.
