Two Whole Weeks

8/23/2017

This Friday is my last day at my agency after three plus years. I'm starting at a new agency across town mid-September (more on that later), but before that I have TWO WEEKS OFF. I have never had more than a week between jobs, and that was one time, when we moved from San Diego to San Francisco, so it wasn't exactly a chill week. 

Instead of traveling, I'm staying put in San Francisco and cannot wait. I have a few things on my to-do list, like framing some art, taking a bunch of things to the tailor, and finally enrolling in some sort of password site so I can stop getting locked out of an app or site daily (seriously). There are also a few "San Francisco things" I'd love to finally do - like brunch at Plow, lunch at Swan Oyster Depot, and yoga at Grace Cathedral. I'm also planning on some serious relaxation, like watch movies all day, see a midday matinee, get a massage, relaxation. Do I sound excited?

The Trend I'm Surprisingly Into

8/09/2017

Even though our summer weather really starts in September in San Francisco, I’m already excited to start shopping for real fall weather. One trend that I’m starting to see more and more of, and that I’m surprising myself in liking, is camouflage print. I have a few army green jackets on heavy rotation in my closet since they’re perfect for when the fog rolls in - and the green acts as a neutral and goes with everything - but this fall I may need to pick up a camo version. Here are a few on my wish list.

If you follow me on Instagram, and watch my Stories, you know that I run through the Panhandle and Inner Richmond to Golden Gate Park most mornings. 

Over the past year, I’ve noticed more and more stenciled honey bears popping up around the city. Then it was a lady bug when I stopped to tie my shoes, and later a bright blue butterfly. After some research I learned that it’s the work of street artist fnnch. 

Since it’s a particularly dreary Thursday morning and I’m about to go for a run in the San Francisco fog, I thought I’d share some of my favorite fnnch street art. 

You literally can’t help but smile when you pass a honey bear or sunny side up egg. The majority of his work is done on styrofoam panels so there’s no permanent damage done to the places he paints, they simply bring a little more beauty to this pretty city. 

And in case you’re interested, you can get your very own honey bear here (he also recently created a La Croix collection that’s reminiscent of Warhol’ Campbell's Soup Cans).

My Girls

7/30/2017


I’m currently on a flight heading back to San Francisco after spending the weekend in Santa Barbara for a reunion with my five best girlfriends from college. In the blink of an eye, we’ve gone nearly two years without seeing each other, so to say I was looking forward to this weekend is an understatement. I’m heading home slightly sunburnt, with a stomach ache from laughing, and feeling like the luckiest girl in the world for these friendships. It was one of those weekends where you realize "these are the days."

Weekend Links

7/21/2017

Friday. This week was one of those weeks that felt fast and slow at the same time. I managed to get in a few long runs in Golden Gate Park and last night we spent a few hours with friends and their new baby, but I’m so looking forward to a few free days. This morning I’m meeting a girlfriend for coffee before work but before that I wanted to share a few recent links that I’ve enjoyed the past few weeks. Have a good weekend, lovelies. 

Victoria shared this article and I found it fascinating. Everything you need to know about the now-infamous Fyre Festival. 

I’m not going to post about the Nordstrom sale because I know it’s all you’ve been seeing this week. I did pick up this white eyelet shirt at the Madewell sale and this silk floral top is currently in my shopping cart (both on sale!).

Have you thought about getting the Dyson hair dryer? Read this first.

Speaking of other random things I found interesting: 25 famous women and their guilty pleasures.

Joanna’s Italy vacation looked so dreamy. It made me look back at photos from our trip last summer.



And in case you missed it: some apartment updates we’re making this summer.
