Exploring Chinatown Like a Local

Chinatown is a confluence of old San Francisco and new. While the neighborhood is one of the most well-known in San Francisco, it's not necessarily the easiest to write about. I live on the edge between Chinatown and Nob Hill and walk through Chinatown on my way to and from work every single day, and I still have trouble with how to tell its story. 

Colorful Doorways

I'm always looking for the inspiration that exists in the world around me. Normally I'm pretty good about noticing and enjoying it, but something about the grey, cold days in January make it really difficult for me. Lately, I've been drawn to doors and doorways. 

Dreamy Weekend at Home

OMG the weather. I know, I know. So cliche to be totally stoked on the absolutely gorgeous summer sunshine SF has been having, but I can't help it. I recently bought a new camera, a Sony a6000, and I dragged this ultra-portable powerful little guy everywhere this weekend.

Weekend Wanderings

We spent the weekend wandering around the neighborhood, running errands, hitting the farmer's market, and watching the Warrior's game. Sunday felt super luxe. I started the day with a barre class at Pop Physique, and then had a decadent brunch at home. Later my friend and I walked down to Union Square for free facials and hand massages at Nordstrom!

3 Perfect Wedding Guest Dresses via ASOS

Have you ever come across a company or store where you want pretty much everything? Have you also been able to afford it all? ASOS was that for me. I discovered the site a couple months ago, and I've ordered quite a few things so far. I love their saved items option, since I'm the kind of person that saves things online forever before doing research and finally ordering. I also love that they offer such a wide variety of looks and brands. Their shipping is fast and everything comes in a small bag.

While the rest of the country frolics in the early summer sunshine, San Francisco is windy, cool and grey. In places, the wind is constant. It howls. It's cold. It will ruin your hair. Clouds and fog show up daily. Some days feel like late fall. It's gloomy and cold. It's summer in San Francisco.
