city living.

Hello loves,

I think I blinked and a whole MONTH of the year went by! So happy 2016 and I hope your month was just the greatest ever. Getting back into the swing of things has taken about this long to work off all the good food and sights I took in while in SF.   

I’m not sure what else to say, except every place I got to go screamed “ME” so loud. The saddest part of being there during the holidays is that sooo many places I wanted to see were closed! I didn’t resist taking snapshots from the outside, though.   

I spent a lot of time in the Sunset district this time around. This was a first for me, as I had never really spent all that much time here. Let me tell you, nothing was missed by brunching at Outerlands or feasting at Nopalito.
Funny fact.. Coffee is an extremely serious sport here. I definitely forgot how snobby the baristas are in this city. For someone who frequents coffee shops as much as I do, yay for still getting put back in my coffee newb place!   

I am pretty sure I went to heaven when I got to go back to my favorite sports and DEVOUR! Salted caramel can never ever be beaten by Bi-Rite. I repeat, NEVER!  

Parting was such sweet sorrow, but I will be back. And now I have such a renewed thirst for adventure. This year will be a year of embracing the present day, and soaking up every single moment.

I promise to take you along to only the very best spots this year. 




fair food is the best food. 

Hello wonderfuls,

Now I don’t know about you, but a fair is like a big kid’s playground. Yes, I am a big kid. From young to old, there are things to do and of course there is the universal item that binds all together: FOOD! I’m all about that foodie life and there are so many years worth of delectable items that I could eat every year until death… Or a heart attack from all those fried foods. Regardless, let me just name a few of my top items I need to try next year. 

A) Fried cheesecake 

B) Fried klondike bar (I mean, I’m already obsessed with the normal ones as it is, and fried icecream is amazing so I can only imagine what melty chocolatey goodness this could be!)

C) Smores covered caramel apple  

Oh hey, are your mouths watering yet?! I’m a little disappointed in myself for staying semi-healthy with the classic buttery corn. Anyhow, the fair is always a blast and I am oh so thankful to have gotten to go before it closed for the year! 
Now, if you’re anything like me (around 5’9… Aka freakishly tall for a girl…), dress shopping can be a nightmare. Dresses? You mean those things that seem to be long enough for everyone else but barely covers your behind and actually just looks like a t-shirt? Yeah, those things. Where do tall girls find a dress that is actually appropriately long enough? Never to fear, eShakti is here! This site allows you to purchase fully customizable clothing. All I did was enter in my height and size, and…. 
TA-DA! A dress that actually touches my knees! Uh… What is life right now?

  I hope you all are having the most delightful of weeks!
