Put aside my list of favorite wineries and decided to try a new one: Whetstone Wine Cellars. Verdict? Very positive!
Been wearing my new Gucci loafers all day, every day. Seriously.
The views of the Golden Gate Bridge from Kirby Cove cannot be beat.
I love most homes in San Francisco, but this one may be my favorite.
The donuts from Grand Lake Kitchen are the weekend brunch treat.
Still so inspired by our trip to Thailand, which you can clearly see in our bedroom.
This new-ish spot in Hayes Valley is my dream happy hour venue.

So happy I treated myself to new sunglasses for my birthday. I’m in love!
The past couple of years, I’ve gone all out and hosted my birthday at my home (see my tea party and picnic), but this year I decided to do things differently. While I love entertaining, there’s no denying that it is a ton of work and I wanted to take things a little easier this year. The best part? Even though I didn’t go all out and host a fête at home, I still had one of the best birthdays ever.
Since my actual birthday fell on a Wednesday, my boyfriend and I celebrated it by going to dinner at the stunning Tartine Manufactory. This place was everything I could have asked for and more. I mean, just look at the photos!
That Friday, we took the day off work, packed the car, and headed to Napa County. While we had originally planned to spend the entire day in Yountville–a quaint little town in the North Bay–we ended up making our way to St. Helena and Calistoga, too. Just driving from town to town is breathtaking, let alone walking around each neighborhood and breathing in the fresh, warm air. Needless to say, it was a really good day.
I ended my birthday weekend with a brunch at Serpentine, surrounded by my closest friends. It was such a lovely morning filled with lots of mimosas, conversation, and celebration.
The ambiance at Gather is not to be beat.
Couldn’t ask for a prettier place to eat lunch.
Reminiscing on my Tulum trip thanks to my desktop background.
So inspired by the mint green details of this bar.
Sometimes you just need to treat yourself at Blue Bottle.
My living room is officially ready for Spring.
Toby’s Feed Barn in Point Reyes may very well be my utopia.
Stinston right before sunset.
Obsessing over the muted gray tiles in Tlaloc.
Dinner at Pizzaiolo is always a good idea.
Crisp white hydrangeas in my bedroom to brighten up these gloomy Winter days.
My 2017 essentials.
The most beautiful sunset from a weekend getaway to Monterey.
Clear blue skies just outside the San Francisco Ferry Building.
My sister’s dog is on top of the leopard trend.
Ahh, I love a good weekend spent in Los Angeles with friends and family. The combination of sleeping in my old bedroom in my parents’ house, eating at all of my favorite spots, and baking in the warm sun always seems to do it for me. Here are a just a few of the highlights from my extended weekend.
Echo Park lake looking extra beautiful with (almost) clear blue skies.
Finally endured the hour-long line for EggSlut, and it was definitely worth it.
While I was downtown, I had to pop in The Broad for a second look.
I basically live at the Ace Hotel and I’m totally ok with it.
Trying out the new coffee shop near my parents’ house: Alfred Coffee.
