Before Kevin and I started dating I lived in a tiny little apartment in San Francisco’s Marina disctrict, which happened to be situated right next to an Urban Outfitters.  It was dangerous as I had to walk past their windowfront every day to get to my doorstep.  What I loved about Urban Outfitters is that I was always able to find a piece for every …

CH Wedding: Bridal Party Boxes

Processed with VSCOcam with hb2 preset

Being asked to be a bridesmaid in the past has always been such an honor, but as we all know, depending on your role being a bridesmaid comes with responsibilities and often a pretty hefty price tag.  With that being said, I knew when I asked my girls to be a part of our wedding I wanted to go the extra mile so they knew from …

Hi friends!  Spring is SO close I can just feel it!  I am gearing up for some work travel in Florida so I have been dusting off all of my warm weather clothes and transitioning out of winter wear. I get asked all the time when I find it appropriate to wear white pants since I tend to wear them year-round.  I obviously am not keen to …

I have been meaning to post the last leg of our Italy trip for some time and with how busy life has been lately, I have really been missing la dolce vita (the good life)!  After almost 15 days in Italy, ending our trip sunbathing on the Amalfi Coast was a brilliant idea and I applaud Kevin and I for planning it so. With all of …

My favorite thing about Sunday night is getting to regroup and relax from the weekend and mentally prep for Monday.  This was one of those weekends where we had friends visit both Saturday AND Sunday so I was looking forward to unwinding from hostess mode. One of my fondest memories from this weekend was going downtown with friends for dinner at Salt House (so good if …

Hi friends!  After a month of rain, we have been totally blessed with a HOT streak in the city.  I’m all over any chance to wear shorts since it’s a pretty rare occasion here in San Francisco.  It’s been such a busy time of year with work and wedding planning and have found myself indoors behind a computer more than usual.  I was so excited to …

Winter Wonderland

It’s been a cozy weekend staying in and watching the rain cover San Francisco!   It brought me back to our trip to Lake Tahoe a few weeks ago and I’m already itching to go back and get another day of skiing in.  There’s so much to explore around the lake and I always look forward to our trips there- it’s such a treat to …

Cozy New Year’s Eve

IMG_4048

  This year we were looking for a low-key New Year’s Eve celebration since December was so busy!  One of my girlfriends sprung the idea to celebrate her birthday, which happens to fall on New Year’s Eve, in Lake Tahoe.  It couldn’t have been a more perfect idea.  We decided to stay at the Cedar House Sport Hotel in Truckee, CA and it was like living …

Half Moon Bay

A few weeks before we left to Italy, Kevin and I attended a housewarming party for our friends in Half Moon Bay.  It’s such a charming coastal city right outside of San Francisco filled with beaches, restaurants, and local shops.  We really don’t visit enough!  The Ritz Carlton in Half Moon Bay is famous for their hot chocolates and spectacular coastal views, so after the housewarming …
