Wowza, this week has got the best of me. I feel as though I’ve been completely MIA on twitter – missing out on a whole lot, but work has been busy busy.
By the time you read this I will be on a plane to LA for the opening day of the Maison de Luxe Greystone Mansion opening. The entire Kendall Wilkinson team will be there to see our room in person – the photos I’ve seen are stunning. I can’t wait to see all of the rooms, mingle with bloggers I haven’t seen in awhile, hear a few lectures and then toast to a fabulous team. On Saturday I’m meeting up with Jessica and Fallon for lunch – I can’t wait to meet them both! Then I’ll be back to SF for a dinner party. Phew, it’s going to be a busy little weekend, but it’s going to be a blast!
While I’m away be sure to pop over to these links:
- These book covers have me swooning.
- Erica Tanov is hosting a holiday soiree Saturday at the SF store (if you live here be sure to stop by) and they are participating in the Remodelista Holiday Market at the Marin Country Mart – I’m totally bummed I’m going to be out of town.
- Love this fall look.
- I’ll definitely be making this for lunch next week!
Hope all of you have a lovely weekend ahead.
Happy Monday! I am back from a wonderfully relaxing trip to Palm Springs – it was hot, hot, hot. It was exactly the kind of weekend I needed about 2 months ago. On Friday we explored Palm Springs – did a little shopping, checked out the Ace, and then headed back to our house to cook a delicious meal. The rest of the weekend we stayed at the house for pool time. It was divine!
Here are a few of my favorites from this week . . . my caramel Clare Vivier clutch that I’ve been carrying around all week, a new lip gloss color by Estee Lauder (I love the bright pink), a photo strip from the Ace hotel with Eric, branches from Birch and my signed copy of HUE by Kelly Wearstler. I also went to the Viceroy, Wearstler did a phenomenal job designing it and it is even more gorgeous in person than the pictures I’ve seen! From the architecture, to the furniture, to the paint colors – I was in awe. And last, but not least, my new iPhone – the Apple store in Palm Springs was so incredibly kind to replace it for me. I’ve never had such amazing customer service. I should say that not having a phone for two days was interesting and I realized how much I rely on it. It’s kind of like my third arm and I need to remember to step away and enjoy life without technology.
Hope all of you have a lovely week ahead. Summer has finally arrived in San Francisco, so I’ll be frolicking around the city in sundresses.

This weekend I am off to get away from the madness of the busy work week – I’ll be driving down to Carmel with my mom to spend some quality time with my family. It’s just what the doctor ordered. Plus my aunt and uncle just finished renovating their entire house so I’m excited to see it all finished. I’m looking forward to drives along to ocean (a must with my uncle – he loves showing us what’s new), walking their Beagle Lucy, shopping trips to Carmel by the Sea, tea time with the family and long dinners around the table. So if you’re looking for me – I’ll be in my comfies hanging out with the family!
Hope all of you have a wonderful and relaxing summer weekend. Enjoy every minute of it!
After a whirlwind time hitting the streets of New York and enjoying a lovely day of summer camp at Terrain right outside Philadelphia, I’m excited to be making the journey back home to San Francisco.
This past week has inspired me beyond words – I think that’s what traveling does to people. From exploring New York in the blazing heat with my favorite girls (Erin,Camille, and Lisa), to spending a day with talented bloggers, to making my first terrarium – the entire trip was magnificent and truly inspiring.
Here are a few of my favorites from this trip – a necklace I picked up at the Brooklyn Flea Market in Williamsburg by World Trades Fair, the Standard hotel that was too cool for school, hanging out with my NYC contributor Lauren from Material Lust, delicious chocolate cover honeycomb (yes, it heavenly) and lastly Terrain. Words cannot describe how inspiring it was. Don’t worry, a whole post is coming up tomorrow with details about my time there.
Hope all of you have had a wonderful week thus far.
