Happy Thanksgiving!  I’m so excited to be able to spend some much needed downtime with my family and friends this Thursday–it will be nice to take a break, catch up, and enjoy good company and good food!  I didn’t plan it this way, but it seems I wore this exact same skirt last Thanksgiving so it’s clearly a favorite of mine!  When dressing for Thanksgiving, I like to keep things festive while comfortable at the same time.  This skirt is a nice pop of color on a cold November day!  Happy Thanksgiving–thank you for following along and have a great holiday!

The holiday shopping season has almost kicked off with Black Friday this week…it’s so soon!  When gift giving, I like to focus on one great gift instead of a handful of random things–I really like to think about the gift I’m giving to someone and want them to be happy with it.  Cuyana told me about their ‘little hints’ campaign based around the concept of giving fewer, better gifts–and I couldn’t agree more.  It’s always helpful to give a little hint here and there about something you’ve had your eye on and what better way than with a local San Francisco based brand that promotes high quality craftsmanship.  I try to choose quality over quantity in my own closet, and the same goes for the gifts I’m giving this holiday season to family and friends.

I’ve been on the hunt for a throw-it-all-in tote and this leather tote is exactly what I’ve been needing to carry my laptop and notebook, groceries, gym gear, and everything in between.  And the gold monogram is the perfect touch of personalization!  I hope my mom isn’t reading this because I’m getting one for her too! Shhh!

my current beauty bag

P&G Beauty Collective Continue reading

It’s no secret that I’ve shared my affinity for trying out different hair and beauty products–like in this post here and here. I’ve found that my hair and skin have different needs as the seasons and weather changes—which is daily in San Francisco, one day its sunny, the next day its foggy and pouring rain! With that being said, I’m always on the lookout to find the next product that will help me put my best face forward.

P&G Beauty Collective

Exciting news guys! As a member of the P&G Beauty Collective representing San Francisco, I’ll be trying out tons of hair and beauty products to share with you my absolute favorites from creamiest moisturizers to split-end repairing hair serums, va-va-volume mascaras and everything in between! I, along with ten other bloggers across the US, will be trying out various hair and beauty products from Aussie, Clairol, CoverGirl, Head & Shoulders, Herbal Essences, Olay, Pantene, Secret, and Vidal Sassoon (these will all be linked per the links you provided) to pick my personal favorites to share with you. I’ve got a lot of work cut out for me—haha!

As for my current beauty bag—these are some of the first products I’ll be testing out…look out for my next post sharing my thoughts on them!

P&G Beauty Collective

A handful of other bloggers will be product testing with me (listed below) so be sure to check out their picks too.  I’ll be tagging my favorites on social media with #PGBeautyCollective so be sure to follow along!

dream shoe closet

dream shoe closetshoes dsirealaia heelsdream shoe closetI recently designed and completed a home improvement project to build out my shoe closet with some help from The Container Store.  I previously had three of these chrome shoe racks and it was starting to take over my apartment–haha–so I needed a better solution!  I had a corner of my space between a support beam and a wall that was not being used and suddenly I thought, “Hmm how about building my dream shoe closet here?”  I loved the idea of floor to ceiling shelves and started drawing out a blueprint with measurements, dimensions, and materials needed.  I’m really impressed with how easy it was to get these pieces custom cut to size and installed–as long as you can use a power drill, you can do this too–and I love how it turned out.  Yay for a happy home for my shoes!  If you guys are interested, maybe I can share more details of the project in a future post?

On the topic of shoes (is there a better topic? I think not.), I recently shared that I’m an ambassador for the fashion app Shoes Dsire!  Being a San Francisco native and working in the tech space, I’m always looking out for new apps that intersect fashion and technology, and Shoes Dsire is my latest discovery to share with my friends.  The app allows you to snap shoes (from that girl at the coffee shop with the must have boots!), find similar styles based on the image, and shop right from your phone.  I’ve been curating my shoe closet through the app for more boots, heels, and flats that I have on my wishlist–to eventually get them into my shoe closet at home.  Check out the app here to snap, find, and shop too!

how to wear: oversized scarf

Okay…it’s officially starting to get chilly out!  One of my favorite fall / winter accessories is a big, giant, oversized scarf and I’m excited to pull these guys out of my closet.  A big scarf is the sartorial equivalent of being able to go outside wrapped up in a blanket–am I right?  They are super cozy and I love the look of choosing a scarf with a similar color palette to the rest of your look–in this case bright red and espresso brown.  Cheers to functional fashion that keeps you super warm while being a great statement piece!
