What DO I Wear?!?! The Denim Jacket

“I wish I had invented blue jeans. They have expression, modesty, sex appeal, simplicity – all I hope for in my clothes.” ~ Yves Saint Laurent Denim has made a big comeback in the last year. And nothing screams classic more (except maybe jeans) then a denim jacket. EVERYONE needs to own a denim jacket. Heck everyone probably has at some ….

Peet’s Coffee

“I am a coffee fanatic. Once you go to proper coffee, you can’t go back. You cannot go back.” ~ Hugh Laurie If you have read my blog you know what a coffee fiend I am. From Starbucks, to Frontside in NoCo to Cafe Jax in the Concrete Jungle. Coffee is a language I not only speak, but I have ….

Amelie: A Broadway Review

“Little boat, big ocean I’m the girl with the copper spyglass Who prays that today she will spot her shore All at once a lighthouse All at once through the copper spyglass A light telling me to lean in on the oar I start to row” Amelie  If you follow Broadway, or are on the Hamilton bandwagon, heck if you watched the ….

Wanderlusting in Montreal

“Own only what you can always carry with you: know languages, know countries, know people. Let your memory be your travel bag.” ~ Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn I have been on the rails and in the skies, working on my frequent mile points. California was only just the beginning or perhaps the middle of my jet setting ways. Only a couple short ….

What DO I Wear?!?! The Trend Alert

“I’ve said this so many times, but I keep coming back to this: Trends come and go. Own them and make them your own. If it doesn’t feel right, then don’t feel like you need to dress a certain way just to be trendy.” ~ Nina Garcia With Spring trying to spring and at times failing miserably for those of ….

I can take the next thing that comes along.’ ” ~ Eleanor Roosevelt I have an unnatural (or perhaps natural?) fear of heights. I have since I was ….

Easter Weekend Recap

“Home is where the heart is.” ~ Pliny the Elder With the Easter Weekend upon us, you know that it wouldn’t be a weekend that this jet setting blonde would take off. Oh no. Not me! Having not been home since Christmas, I was itching to see my family: go hiking with my brother, do mani-pedis with my mom (as well ….

Drybar Hair Heaven

“For me, hair is an accoutrement. Hair is jewelry. It’s an accessory.” ~ Jill Scott When my friend suggested going to a Drybar in San Francisco, I thought why not? It was something to do on a rainy day. It had a cult following in New York City, but I had yet to jump on […]

Anastasia: The Musical

“Yes, let this be a sign! Let this road be mine! Let it lead me to my past And bring me home… At last!” ~ Journey To The Past It is no joke when I say I have been waiting years for this show. This show has been in the works for a long while, taking its sweet time to ….

Happy Birthday Sugar

“Our birthdays are feathers in the broad wing of time.” ~ Jean Paul My sister and I had a knack of spoiling each other on our birthdays. We never had huge parties. Just family dinner and cake, yet we always went all out with each other. Whether it was spa days, beach days, or going out to eat with a rom-com ….
