Summer Time + 12 Things

A lot has happened since spring’s 12 things, so today’s post will be a pretty good update on what’s going on. It’s finally the first day of summer, but really it has been feeling like summer for quite some time. Warmer weather always means more sun dresses to wear. And I have a closet full of the for the season! I recently scored this sweet little number from…

Emerald Bay

As mentioned in my last post, I was in Tahoe for Labor Day weekend. However, a weekend in Tahoe wouldn’t be complete without hiking. My favorite place for an easy hike with incredible views would be Emerald Bay. Last time I went up to Emerald Bay, the roads were closed because of the snow as … Continue Reading

Lakeside Proper

One of my favorite things to do in the summer is to head up to Lake Tahoe.  I just love breathing in the cool crisp air by the lake. It completely rejuvenates you after a long hard week of hustling in the city. Tahoe is a classic summer destination for us in California. There are … Continue Reading

Summer Stroll

In a month, summer will come to an end. I have been doing my best to take advantage of the weather before the fall season approaches. I took a quick stroll around on one of my favorite trails in the neighborhood. I usually come out here in the mornings for runs before it gets too … Continue Reading

The Minimalist

As much as I love bold and beautiful dresses, when it comes to accessories, I tend to gravitate towards something simple and delicate. Bulky jewelry feels, well, bulky to me.

Polka Dot Dress

It has been hot in the East Bay lately so I have been taking trips out by the bay to beat the heat. This weekend I decided on Sausalito. It’s a little town right outside of San Francisco on the Marin side of the bay. The landscape is reminiscent of the Amalfi Coast in Italy. … Continue Reading

Wildest Dreams

While this week is my anniversary with my boyfriend, we celebrated it early with a trip to the central coast. I anticipated a pretty low key anniversary this year, but I was thoroughly surprised that my boyfriend booked a wonderful oceanview room at the Hyatt Carmel Highlands last weekend. Carmel is our little spot when … Continue Reading

Florence, Italy

Florence is the place to dedicate the most of your stay while traveling in Italy. You cannot fit it into a cookie cutter space and pack it away as a segment of your travels. It is simply eternal and there is no way nail it down within a few short days. I had the best food, … Continue Reading

Getty Villa

While I may have grown up in the Bay Area, I absolutely love going down to Los Angeles. I love the city, I love the vibe, I love all the beautiful beaches and I love the Lakers. I am definitely a California girl through and through. Last month I was in LA for work and on … Continue Reading
