what i’m loving lately

fall floral bouquet

Hi everyone!  I wanted to share with you a few of my favorite mini indulgences.  Before you know it the holiday season will be here and I’m taking the time to share what I love to do for myself to fend of holiday stress and enjoy a bit of ‘me’ time…enjoy!

Who doesn’t love fresh flowers?!  I picked up these flowers last week and they are still just as gorgeous as the first day!  My trick for long lasting flowers? Add a teaspoon of sugar and a couple drops of vodka to the vase water.  Yes, I know this sounds weird but I found it on Pinterest and it works like a charm–who knew?


I recently experienced microdermabrasion for the first time at SkinSpirit.  I love indulging in facials and wanted to take my skin care up a notch to ditch the dull, dry skin I’ve been noticing ever since the weather started to change.  The appointment was quick, relaxing, and I left with my skin feeling completely rejuvenated…I’m hooked!  Soft, smooth skin is the perfect accent to a bold red lip, right?  Have you guys tried microdermabrasion?

yes to carrotsOn the topic of skincare, I’ve been keeping these Yes to Cucumbers facial wipes in my bag so that after a long day I can wipe off my makeup and feel fresh.  I’ve been known to use these facial towelettes while driving sitting in traffic, in the back of a taxi, or as a refreshing way to wipe down my face at the gym.  Love having little travel size facials in my purse!

Timothy Scott SalonWhen I have multiple shoots and events in a week, I like to keep my hair situation manageable but still looking great.  During those busy weeks, I opt for a shampoo and blowout and then use dry shampoo to keep it looking fresh (and fab!) for a few days.  I recently discovered a new San Francisco hidden gem–Timothy Scott Salon–and immediately had to book an appointment.  For being a girl thats always glued to my laptop/iPhone/iPad I really like being able to book and manage my appointment online.  So happy to have found a new go-to blowout salon–great hair for everyone!

And my last favorite this week, a youtube video from photographer Peter Hurley on a tip for taking great photos…the ‘squinch’!
