Sunday Neutrals

Image

These past few days have been deliciously gluttonous. My wonderful boyfriend, Cole (who took these amazing photos, btw), landed an art directing internship at Butler Shine Stern & Partners in Sausalito! So, to kick off the weekend, I made caramels using this recipe. I’ve got to say, they were worth the extra effort. The flavors were richer than store bought and I intend on making them again.

To continue the celebration, we made reservations for brunch at Magic Flute Risorante. We’d been there for dinner before but didn’t think it was very special. But since they were voted the #1 Best place for brunch in San Francisco, we were curious to see if they lived up to the hype. They did. If you’re in the San Francisco area I highly suggest you take a break and go have some brunch.

We stopped by a park on the way home and snapped up a few pictures of an absolutely gorgeous day.

Brights and polka dots

I love adding a bit of pop to my outfits with either a touch of brights or a fun print. Being a graphic designer, I can swap less conventional office attire for more fun, yet put together looks. I recently picked up these spotted jcrew pants and am considering wearing them to a 2nd (yay!) job interview. I usually incorporate colors and prints into my regular office wardrobe, but I’m a bit on the fence about wearing bold printed pants to an interview (though they did compliment my red-orange pants during my first interview).

Thoughts? Should bright colors and bold prints play a part in trying to land a new design job? Here are some other looks I love. Enjoy!

Aside

I’m a firm believer that people should always share food at the table. Not everyone agrees with me on this (like my super patient boyfriend who always lets me pick at his plate but never touches mine—thanks!), and to be … Continue reading

Hello world!

late night bacon in dessert form

Last night, while Michelle and I were baking these bacon & chocolate chip cookies in our apartment on 23rd st, we had the brilliantly spontaneous idea of starting our own blog. Mostly because it was midnight and we were on a sugar high, but we wanted to share with the world our love of food, fashion, and life. So here you go world! Here are some pictures of our late night bakery from last night.
