So You Want to Try Whole30?

November 22, 2016

whole-30-6With Thanksgiving just a few days away, food is at the tippy top of mind. As you may have seen on Instagram, I’ve just recently completed the Whole30! I did it for the entire month of October, ending 10/30 – just in time for Halloween candy, our 9-year anniversary dinner, and all of the delicious holiday food coming up. This is actually my third time around completing the Whole30 (or other type of elimination diet) and I’d classify it as a success.

Why I Quit Drinking Coffee

October 24, 2016

img_8299Coffee is a staple in many people’s diets, some needing to simply function like a normal human in the mornings. It’s become part of the social routine, with “coffee dates” acting as a placeholder for simply hanging out. I mean, there’s a reason that those latte flatlays on Instagram get so many likes. Wondering why I quit drinking coffee?

After making the big move across the country to San Francisco almost three years ago, I’m frequently asked what I like most about living in here. San Francisco is a fabulous city, with tons of amazing things to do and see. The culture here is vibrant and the energy effervescent. However, whenever people ask about my favorite aspect about SF, my first answer is always a bit surprising. Can you guess?

6 Ways to Get Your Best Beauty Sleep

August 26, 2016

beauty-sleep-3There is very little in this life that’s more important to me than sleep, and I would sacrifice most things for a tight 8 hours. There’s just something about luxuriating in bed that feels so unbelievably indulgent to me. In the morning, I stay in bed until the last possible minute, giving myself juuuust enough time to take a quick shower, brush my teeth, and give my hair a quick zhuzz with some dry shampoo. At night, I’m rarely in bed past 10:30 PM. I’m a light sleeper and sensitive to light and noise, so I’ve picked up my fair share of tricks over the years to optimize my sleep time and prevent tossing and turning.

A Valentine’s Vlog!

February 16, 2016

Happy Valentine’s Day! I’ve been having a lot of fun putting together these little vlogs the past few weeks (if you haven’t noticed, haha!). Since we both had the day off yesterday, my valentine and I swapped gifts and stayed in for a cozy breakfast, ventured out for an afternoon movie, did some shopping, and ended the day with deep-dish pizza. I’m sure I don’t say this enough but if you ever see beautiful photos or videos on this blog, it is because of this man! He is always a good sport and sometimes even lets me film him with the camera once in a while ;).

This Weekend: Manis + Mimosas!

February 8, 2016

manis-and-mimosasHappy Monday! This weekend seemed to go by in the blink of an eye, but I had so much fun hanging with my girl, Mel, and venturing into SF! We stopped by our girl Aimee‘s event and sipped mimosas while getting our nails done. It was such a nice treat and it was so great to meet some other fellow SF bloggers. The event was sponsored by Yes To, a brand that I’ve used and loved for years. We took home some goodies, including some products for our guys. When I got home, I told Sawyer that I brought him back some swag from the event and he said, “Can I eat it?”. LOL! Honestly, you probably could, but I don’t think it would taste very good!
