Travel: What’s Got Me Yearning

Restaurants In Unexpected Places I’d like to see
50 small town in the US with the best Fall Foliage – On my bucket list
Top ten must destinations from the list I’ve been to five. Glad to know I’ve got five more plus of course next year’s list of places I may not have been already. So I guess I will be travelling for the rest of my life.
Sanctuary in Colombia to check out among other places some of us have never heard of according to BBC Travel .

Oh…The Sensuality of Shoes

I really do wish I could pull a Carrie Bradshaw here in San Francisco and walk in to work every day wearing shoes-extraordinaire. But unfortunately, and although I consider myself to be different from all the norm, these shoes don’t fly in a techy city.

Anyway, a girl is always entitled to dream:









What’s Kept Me Interested Online On A Sunday

Sundays I usually stay away from the internet. It’s my way of trying to stay stress-free for at least one day a week if possible by avoiding al news about anything and everything. Sunday is my day to go for long walks, have lunch somewhere preferably an outdoor cafe or a picnic and then hang out in a touristy part of the city. I suppose seeking inspiration every way I can organically, rather than sitting in front of a computer screen.

This Sunday and the coming week  however, I volunteered to watch two dogs for someone who lives out in the country-I laugh, and so my day is a little mixed up, having nothing to do but sit in front of the computer in a house cooled down by AC. Not at all interested in going outside in the hundred plus degree temperatures.

So this is what I found interesting:

Every Girls Beauty Bucket List – Which I plan to make happen in the next six months.
A place I wish I could spend the holidays, or maybe I just have to watch the film THE HOLIDAY – either way this bit of article put a smile on my face.
Thinking FALL/Autumn already
Sky pool in London – I don’t think is for me. But the idea of is amazing.
Ideas for the bedroom remodel I have planned for the beginning of next year.

Wedding Cakes After A Taste Test

I went along with someone dear to me for a wedding cake taste test, mostly because her wedding is a destination wedding and I wanted to get away for the weekend, and eat cake.

I’ve never been to one of these things, and so the experience was fun-discussing cake and eating them. Minus of course the sugar rush right after. I was wondering why the cake designer poured us each a tall glass of water just as we sat down around the table.

Anyway, he wanted the bride to be to express her style so he could design the perfect cake for her October wedding. And so here we are searching for unique cakes, some of which I have included below, knowing in a week or two this will all change. (I say that with a smile)

The City – My City, San Francisco

I’ve lived in San Francisco most of my life. Meaning, I left for about eight years and then came back, and I have no plan on moving to anywhere else anytime soon.

The city has definitely progressed and will probably continue to evolve for decades more, if the techy industry continues trending the way that it is – in the bay area. Until of course someone exploits Austin,  Texas.  Shhh.

Until then there is so much to the city and in reality I can’t get enough of discovering something new every time I turn around or even rediscovering something I’ve known most of my life.

There is a list someone came up with here with a handful of eateries he considers the reason San Francisco is so delicious right now.  What I’d like to add to that is, these are only a few of the reasons the city is so delicious right now.  There is more, much more…and the only way to find out is to pay us a visit and see for yourself, or send me an email and I will be more than happy to recommend.

fashion: forever chanel haute couture

I have nothing more to say…except pure sophistication, elegance, and a certain flair I often dream about in fashion.


shoes: boot-sandals I adore

After many years of wearing high heels, three inches to be exact, to accessorize my business attire while working in the financial district ions ago (not that many ions ago), and now being able to wear flats on most days to work, I’ve come to adore the boot-sandal, which probably is the best thing that ever happened to fashion. The shoes are versatile enough to compliment any outfit, particularly if paired tastefully. (which I will talk about in another blog).

healthy recipe with fish and yogurt and and and…

I take great pride in food presentation, even if I am making dinner for two, which is most nights. I still organize the food groups on a plate as if we were eating in a fancy restaurant trumping in food design.  So, naturally, I choose recipes to try based on how well the presentation in a blog, or website. Crazy I know, but that is reality in my household.

Here’s one I couldn’t resist to include-market fish and charred greens with citrus honey yogurt-oh my god how delicious!




fashion: everything but the holey jeans

For me that is. I am not a fan of holey jeans, although it does add a certain look to an ensemble, I just can’t see myself wearing them. Maybe when I was in high school, but now I borderline between sophistication and a bit of tom-boy. (I laugh)

Anyway, here’s one of my favorite blogger/fashionista/icon and her style  I’ve come to admire over the last year or so when I stumbled upon her blog. Check out some of  my favorites.
