Your Weekly Portland Club Update: May 8, 2023

Dear Member,


Monthly Mentions

T-Minus 6 Days – Mother’s Day (or Special Women in Your Life Day) is right around the corner. If you are that special lady, please stop reading now! You want to be surprised, don’t you? We have rounded up some of our favorite recommendations for the perfect gift. Let’s start out with Quince; all the luxe without the scary price tag.  Our favorite is their Mongolian Cashmere Crewneck–literal perfection. Or if you want to elevate mom’s summer sandal game, give Beek a go! Of course, flowers and a day at the spa are always appreciated too!

Summer Parties – our way of thanking our members. Our Summer Parties are kicking off this month! See the full line up here. Make sure you RSVP and bring a friend–we promise to deliver the fun.

Welcome to Wrexhamif you need something to watch, this is it! This sports documentary, which debuted in August 2022, follows Rob McElhenney and Ryan Reynolds as they learn to run the third oldest professional football club in the world. And if you are following the happenings in real time, this is as good as it gets! Check out the trailer.

A Little T.L.C.

This week, we wanted to share a super heathy and super easy breakfast recipe. It’s so easy and so good…we think anyone can make it (hint hint: NOT mom). It’s a grain-free Dutch Baby (or puffy pancake to you and I). It not only looks impressive, but every bite is delightful! The full recipe is attached. We prefer the original version and like to serve it with some organic maple syrup, and some sliced up bananas or blueberries. Enjoy! See the recipe here.


Things We’re Loving

Replica – an exact copy of an object. Ok, you already knew that. But have you tried Replica fragrances by Maison Margiela Paris? They literally replicate smells that you love and transport you right back to that time or place. Some of their best sellers…Beach Walk or Whispers in the Library. Or perhaps you want to be transported to another era–1967 Dublin is awaiting you. Buy direct or find at Nordstrom or Sephora.


Ponder This

Life changes. You lose love. You lose friends. You lose pieces of yourself that you never imagined would be gone. And then, without you even realizing it, these pieces come back. New love enters. Better friends come along. And a stronger, wiser you is staring back in the mirror. No matter how bad it gets, better days are always waiting, hoping you’ll make it there to accept the smiles and joy that they’re offering.  – Tiny Buddha
