The Best Rooftop Bars in San Francisco

First off, I am so excited that the holiday weekend is finally here!  We are set to head out of town today for some lake time.  With the weather warming up Kevin and I have been stopping by some of our favorite roof top and outdoor spaces in SF and I wanted to share them with you guys.  For those who live here or are visiting I'll be listing our top 5 favorite rooftop bars in the city.

La Dolce Vita: Positano Beach Day

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 the moving around from city to city we decided to spend an entire day in Positano beaching it up (life was really rough back then)… read more

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 unplug for a few days and take in the fresh air.  We spent our first day walking around the snow covered resort at the Cedar House Sport checking out all that the property has to offer.  The resort is so beautiful and we loved how they focused on utilizing natural resources.  You can check out my earlier review of our visit here! read more

Cozy New Year’s Eve

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 in a snow globe.  The snowfall in Lake Tahoe this year has been amazing and all of us enjoyed the change of scenery from the city.  Truckee is such a sweet little town and Cedar House Sport Hotel couldn’t encompass that more.  We were pampered with fresh baked cookies and hot chocolate every day while we watched the snowfall.  As much as I love dressing up, it was nice to relax and bundle up. read more

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 party we decided to venture over for exactly that and some people watching of course. read more
