I had dinner at Outerlands in the Sunset and this has to be one of my favorite places to eat! Such a cute and cozy spot that I'm sure you will catch me here at one point or another. This was one of the fur jackets I bought before I left to the Bahamas. Probably my favorite piece in my closet right now. I always refrained from wearing all black since I wore it almost everyday for 3 years straight. Now, I actually like the monotone look and it compliments well with this furry cover of mine. The best part? It has a hood and pockets! Extra brownie points in my book. And I know, I know.. I can't get enough of these shoes! At 5'1'' I need all the help that I can get! :)
Happy Friday!


baby it's cold outside.

When I visited Japan and Hong Kong, I remembered all the beautiful girls and the parkas they wore to keep warm during the winter. I purchased this one last year and finally made use of it since the weather completely dropped to what it was in just a week. It was the first time in a very long while that it rained so hard and if there is one thing I hate more than anything it's driving in the rain. It's cleared up, though it really feels like fall since the air is much cooler. The jacket keeps me dry and the hood keeps me bundled, the fur reminds me of my untamed mane-- which btw-- pause on that idea of extensions. Oh and the detail inside makes me happy.

stay hungry. stay foolish.

The loss of Steve Jobs really hit home for me. Even though I did not know him personally, Apple products have been such a big part of my everyday life, it almost felt like I did and there is this deep gratitude I hold for everything he has done to contribute to that. I know the heaviness of losing someone so close and I remember my best friend Rod who passed away at such a young age in 2006 and I haven't felt that same weight till now. Things like this makes me very reflective how life is short and Steve Jobs was such an inspiration and made such an impact in this world, I thought I'd share this since it really resonated with me. My thoughts and prayers go out to his close friends and family and for everyone in my life, I am truly thankful.

everything's working perfect

I attended Gilt City's Blogger Brunch at Perbacco in San Francisco earlier today. If you aren't familiar with Gilt Groupe, it's an invite only, online shopping destination to luxury merchandise and experiences at insider prices. It was really cool to meet an impressive group of people in the industry from the Bay, who share the same interest and passion for fashion, food and fun. Aside the great company, the food was delicious and they gave goodie bags filled with cookies from Crumb that I've practically inhaled already-- the Lemon Sunshine is off the hook. This day was definitely full of eating since I later ate at Roses Cafe in the Marina for dinner and am so stuffed. I'm all about dining outdoors, especially at night and the weather we've been having lately has been perfect for that. Special thanks to Simmone and Beth for hosting such a successful event!

let's enjoy this time

October is right around the corner and I've already decided what I'll be for Halloween, my favorite holiday of the year. Busy week ahead to ring in the new month with a few changes.. one being that I'm going to get hair extensions, courtesy of my hairstylist Mola so I'm excited how that'll turn out. Seemed like a fun thing to try and since I'm always up for experimenting with my hair and I can't wait to see the results since I'm a little over with this side braid business I keep doing as a default. Here's to a new look and long hair!

Got this blazer at Liv Boutique in the Marina and fell in love the moment I saw it. If there is a print aside leopard I dig most, stripes would be it. Horizontal seems to be the only thing going on in my closet so I was pretty stoked to discover this. Ate at some new spots recently that I really like so I decided to get back on photographing/reviewing dishes/restaurants I dined at here. Especially since I get a bunch of emails asking good places to eat in San Francisco or things like my diet? It's pretty hard to think on the spot of every place since there's a lot to choose from but my top recent spots are Delfina and Bi-Rite in the Mission- SO good!
