what i’m loving lately

diptyque candle Continue reading

I like to keep my home office a creative and inspiring place and lately I’ve been playing with scented candles to transform my space.  Diptyque recently launched La Collection 34 which smells just like the Paris candle-making workspace at 34 Boulevard Saint Germain (read: smells amazing) so I picked up my own candle to experience that aroma.  Along with the beautiful smelling candle, I picked up this fun printed notebook as well…perfect for my never ending to-do lists!

alternative birthday cake ideasMy mom’s birthday was this past weekend and I was in charge of the birthday cake.  I wanted to do something different and was inspired by the donut-cake concept so I decided to pick up a handful of different delicious sweets from the Whole Foods bakery and assemble.  I picked out a chocolate eclair, cupcakes (one shaped like a dog, obviously.), vegan chocolate donut, banana tart, fruit tart, and various french macarons.  Arranging the different sweets into a ‘cake’ of sorts was really fun and it definitely upped the wow factor when my family saw it.  I think this might just be my new signature ‘birthday cake’!

project juice juice cleanse

But sometimes too much ‘birthday cake’ can be a major sugar load, yikes!  To offset the naughty sugar indulgences I hit the reset button with a Project Juice one-day juice cleanse.  I’ve done Project Juice’s cleanses in the past but this time I was looking for something a bit more hardcore with a focus on the green juices to get in as many vitamins and nutrients as possible.  The Forever Young cleanse definitely isn’t for the faint of heart because its hardcore but I loved it.  The EZ Green juice is my favorite and ending the day with the creamy and sweet Almond Mylk is such a treat.  You guys have to try this!

record store san franciscoAs far as I’m concerned, Sundays are for brunching and exploring.  After brunching with friends this past weekend, we stumbled on this amazing record store in San Francisco’s North Beach district.  It’s always fun to find new-to-you places in your own city!

One of my favorite looks is an A-line skirt that has a lot of movement to it.  I picked this up a few weeks ago and surprisingly haven’t gotten a chance to wear it until now.  To mix up the faux leather, I added a chambray shirt in a grey color wash…definitely different from your typical chambray!  And the finishing touch, some amazing grey suede pumps which may or may not have been an early birthday present to myself…oops! :)  I’ve got my suede shoes on and I’m twirling my skirt all over San Francisco!

Fall weather has me craving soft, blanketed sweaters–and if they are made of cashmere, well that’s just icing on the cake.  I recently stopped into the Calypso St. Barth boutique in my home town of Marin, CA for the first time and immediately thought ‘hello, new fall wardrobe!’  I picked up this soft, camel colored wrap sweater which I know will be a piece I reach for again and again in my closet.  I also found this fun, embellished top and I really liked the way the soft cashmere  juxtaposed against the intricate beading.  I kept the rest of my look simple with a black skirt and boots, and to finish it all off?  A bold red lip!

Guys…I think I’ve found my new fall outfit!  I’m in love!  Thank you Calypso St. Barth for helping me find it!

On the weekends I like mixing a bit of casual with great accessories, and today I paired my new favorite tee with just that.  I found this top–part t-shirt jersey, part fluttery, lux fabric–through Le Tote and I’ve already worn it twice this week.  It’s always so fun to find a new basic piece that you fall in love with and wear over and over.  I popped on these new Manolo Blahniks (early birthday present to myself…yay!) and headed out to brunch.  Happy weekend all!

Ahhh the season of Fall!  Starbucks pumpkin spice lattes come back, we pull out our coats and jackets, and then there’s that little thing called football ;)

Being a San Francisco girl, the 49ers are obviously my team and its fun to dress up a bit to celebrate the games.  It’s such a fun feeling to get together with friends and huddle around the TV–at home, at a bar, or ideally at the new stadium (I’ve been and its amazing!)–and even better to serve up football with a little style!  For game day, I like the idea of incorporating my team’s apparel and then giving it a touch of glam and girly so that it’s ‘me’.  I actually didn’t realize this top was sequinned when I ordered it online but it definitely gives it an extra dose of sparkle, and is a nice addition to my Burberry trench.  Dressing sporty and supporting your team doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your own personal style, and I love that!

I’m honored to announce that I’ve been inducted into the NFL Hall of Fashion (…um, pinch me?) representing the San Francisco 49ers alongside other fans and their respective teams like Jordin Sparks, Erin Heatherton, Gino Smith, and the list goes on.  Pretty cool!

You can follow along all season across social media by checking out @NFLFanStyle and join in on the conversation and share your look too with #NFLFanStyle.

Colin Kaepernick…I’m waiting for you! ;)
