Valentine’s Day

San Francisco is full of great things to do. With so many options to choose from, we opted for a favorite–Ghirardelli Square. The desserts are decadent, and the scenery is unbeatable.

Valentine’s day is the perfect excuse to play tourist!

Pretty Little Things


I recently cut my own hair (not the first time…)! And then I went to the most amazing salon to get it fixed…and here is the finished product! I had one of the best salon experiences at Cetana Salon down on the Embarcadero.

Cetana Salon1. The treatment: like a queen

2. The quality: incomparable

3. Learning experience: off the charts

Adrian was my hair stylist (I hope I spelled her name right!). She listened and really understood what I hated about my hair and what I wanted the outcome to be. She fixed my fringe, recommended an amazing new product, and taught me a new way to dry my hair (which I will do a separate post on). I finally feel like my hair will begin to grow out in a style that I’m happy with.



This is the product Adrian picked out for me! Over time, it will tame my hair in a way that makes it much more manageable–especially when natural. Oh, and did I mention they offer a complimentary bang trim between my next cut?!

Benefit Fake up

Aside from my hair dreams…this is another pretty little thing to add to the list! Benefit Fake Up isn’t just an under eye concealer, but also a much needed hydrator (especially during finals week). 😦

Sally Hansen

Navy Fleet by Sally Hansen is my latest nail color obsession. It goes with everything. I swear.

Harper Lee

This is number one on my summer reading list! Very excited.

Gap quilt bomber

And last but certainly not least, my new favorite quilted bomber by Gap. I simply cannot take it off…

Day Party

Most of us picture holiday parties happening at night. However, many parties do occur in the day time. But what is appropriate to wear during the day?! I mean, it’s so easy to OVER DO IT.

Here is what I advise:

Day Party

Holiday dresses can scream formal. Switching it up with a skirt and an eye catching top is a great alternative.

Day Party

Velvet is a perfect material for the season. All you have to do is commit to a color scheme, and the outfit will appear as just the right amount of fancy and understated. 

Day Party

Wear heels, but something a little more casual– open toes to show off your fun holiday nails will do the trick! Don’t hold back on your accessories. Classy jewelry will keep your look whole.

Day Party

If you’re every worried about what to do with your hair, just wear it down. It’s effortless, yet beautiful. Keep your make-up refined. A deep lip that matches the color scheme, and lots of mascara will be just enough.

Driving by was not enough. I decided this beautiful apple orchard was the perfect place to pose for a few photos in today’s outfit.

I always try to wear something comfortable when I know I’ll be spending most of the day in the car. Comfortable still means cute, and American Apparel has the best comfy, cotton, collared shirts around.

Pair the peach button down with your favorite boyfriend style Lucky Brand Jeans and you’re set!

The best types of outfits are the ones that can be dressed up or down, depending on your mood or the occasion. To make the outfit even more casual I would have traded my heels in for these flats.

Switching up your hairstyle can also help upgrade or downgrade any look! With dangle earrings, a low bun off to the side adds a touch of maturity. Pull down a few strands around your face to keep the style soft and sensual.

Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy is my new obsession! I used the shade called High Roller, and for those of you who don’t like to paint your finger nails because it chips off the next day– SAY NO MORE. This polish lasts AT LEAST a week without a topcoat, something that is unheard of in the world of nail polish.

A great look for a great day.
