“To me… San Francisco is an ideal city, intellectually stimulating and naturally beautiful. The oceans and forests are close enough to refresh the spirit; the architecture is always exciting.” ~ Ruth Bernhard Fascination I admit it is a total cliche.

“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 ….
“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 […]

“All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.” ~ Charles M. Schulz I know you are all thinking I left something epic out on Day Three right? I mean after all that mermaid fun a girl has got to be hungry, right? You would be right! For the sake of lengthy posts and the ….
