We only spent one night and day in San Francisco, but it was completely heavenly. At night we celebrated James' 30th and durring the day we just drove around the city, stopping when we felt inclined. We ate lunch at Tartine and then took a walk through Buena Vista Park. If you've never been, it's insanely beautiful and perched on a hill looking over the city. We ended the evening sipping hot cider and watching the sun set behind the Golden Gate Bridge. I do hope to make it back there this year, and hopefully for longer then one night.

Since the year is coming to a close, I thought I would leave you with one last post. These past few weeks have been exactly what I needed. I have barely turned on my computer and I kind of love it. Although I must admit, I haven't been completely disconnected. I've been busy taking and sharing photos of our holiday on Instagram. All of these photos above were taken with my iPhone 4s. Isn't it amazing what an iPhone can do? It has really made photography accessible to so many. These were all taken in San Francisco and Marin, where we spent Christmas. I have yet to look through the photographs from my camera, but I am sure there will be a few worth sharing. 

Any fun plans for New Years Eve? We are still trying to decide. Neither one of us are feeling like getting fancy this year. The more I think about it, staying in with some delicious food and champagne sounds just perfect. I will be back to regular posting after the new year. I adore all of my sweet readers! Thank your for making this past year so incredible! Happy New Year!  xo


Our first day in San Francisco was cloudy and cold. It felt more like winter then summer, but we were so happy to be there, it didn't seem to matter. Afton took me to Dottie's True Blue Cafe for brunch, obviously a popular spot since we waited in line for an hour {totally worth the wait}. After our bellies were full, we walked around the city. My love affair with typography came out as I couldn't stop photographing the vintage signage of San Fran. 

On day two the sun came out along with a slight breeze. We headed to Tartine for what was the best sandwich {spicy turkey} and banana cream tart of my life. I guess I shouldn't expect anything less from a James Beard award winning pastry chef. I now feel jealous of all you San Franciscans that get to eat at Tartine whenever you like. It will forever be on my list of musts when I visit. After lunch we walked to Dolores Park, went vintage shopping in The Haight and then ended our last evening at The Buena Vista for Irish coffees. Sounds pretty great right? It was such a fun trip thanks to Afton, who knows and loves the city so well.


I am off to San Francisco bright and early this morning with one of my favorite girls- Miss Afton for the Glitter Guide launch party. We decided to make it into a two-day girls adventure and I couldn't be more excited. Not only am I excited for the launch party soirée, but I can't wait to wonder the city, do a little shopping and eat delicious food. I leave Friday morning SUPER early, so I hope I can fit it all in. Do you have any favorite SF spots?

I hope to see you at the launch party tonight! xx
