I’ve been brainstorming costume ideas for Halloween this year. I’ve compiled some of my favorite ideas below.

I’ve always wanted to do a Flapper or Holly Golightly, but that Mary Poppins costume is quite cute!


Mary Poppins / Flapper / Holly Golightly / Cat Burglar / Bank Robber / Rosie The Riveter

What are you wearing for Halloween this year? Let me know in the comment section below.

I tried to double-up on the links today since I missed the series last week. It’s a tough job hustling. Which, by the way, I might have an update on the job front soon (that I’m really excited about!).

Until then, enjoy some of the favorite links from the past two weeks. I know I have!

Instead of asking “What’s my life’s purpose?”, ask these questions instead.

Make espresso anywhere!

Dainty gold necklace with an unbeatable price.

Remember that your #FriendsAreWaiting (pulls on the heartstrings).

Gosh, I never want to have a relationship based on ease and dependability. But maybe that happens?

Yikes, I need to start thinking about a Halloween costume! What are you guys dressing up as this year?


It was a bitter sweet moment when I placed my keys onto the counter at my first apartment in San Francisco, walking out the door one last time.

The Pacific Heights neighborhood is really beautiful. All the houses are lovely, manicured, & full of wealthy families. A very nice & safe neighborhood, right in the middle of some of my favorite streets (Fillmore, Union and Polk).

But, if you’ve read this post, you know that it was time for me to move on.

Wow, today is a big day. Not only am I moving into my new place (thank goodness!), but my little sister is in town from Seattle!

We’ll be enjoying a proper San Francisco brunch at Sweet Maple, and then happily wandering up Fillmore (one of my favorite streets in San Francisco) to do a little window shopping.

I’ll promise to post pictures soon! In the meantime, enjoy some of my favorite links from this past week:

How bee-utiful are these gold stacking rings.

I’m usually not into animal print, but these flats are pretty cute.

I need to make this dish soon.

Made me laugh. Get it together, guys!

Can you guess the most popular honeymoon destination? The answer surprised me!

If you’re in San Francisco, be sure to check out the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival. It’s free!

Have a lovely weekend! Be on the lookout for pics of my new place. Coming soon!

The last couple of months for me have been… challenging, frustrating, and disappointing, to name a few. Essentially, it’s been the worst couple of months I’ve experienced in a long time.

What are you up to this weekend?

Most of my Saturday and Sunday will be spent packing (yep, I’m moving to a new location in San Francisco). But tonight, I’m going to a yoga charity event in Berkeley to help out dogs in need. I’m sure I’ll fall in love with some little rascal that I can’t adopt, but at least I can give my love in a different way.

I’ll update you on life changes soon (there are a lot!), but until then, enjoy some of my favorite links from the past week:

Little things that make someone instantly attractive.

I’ve known about this blog for awhile, but just recently started crushing on it. I relate to Emily in a lot of ways that I hadn’t been aware of before.

I’ll take this twill tote in navy, please.

Zola is the Pinterest for wedding registries.

Loving J.Crew’s collection of fall sweaters.

If you’re like me in the kitchen, these cutting techniques are very important to learn. Still trying to perfect dicing.

A wearable for your beloved pup.

I don’t care what anyone says. I still love a cozy turtleneck.

Hiking makes your happier.

This Monday (Sept 29) is National Coffee Day. Be on the lookout for free coffee to be had.

Have a lovely weekend!


It looks so peaceful, doesn’t it?

(via anicelittle)

It’s a practice to let the people who don’t treat us right go.

A friend said this to me the other day as we chatted about our struggles to let go of people in our lives that have disappointed us.

I like the saying because it makes me feel human; that it’s not easy to shut off feelings for someone that you cared about. That it takes time, patience, forgiveness and self-love to help you overcome those feelings of being hurt, and realizing that you deserve better.

You guys, I’ve fallen in love with these pretty gold accents from the Mr. Kate BeautyMarks collection.

These foil tattoos (faux tattoos, mind you) come in gold, silver, black and a variety pack. Enjoy.
