I always admire women who rock chunky jewelry or generally giant accessories, but that's not my everyday jam. I prefer to drape on a few minimalist pieces instead, e.g. thin gold rings and delicate necklaces! So, one night I was browsing Amazon (as my account will show I do all too often) and found this Mini Moons Phase necklace that was dreamy and totally affordable. That necklace introduced me to a brand I am completely smitten with called HONEYCAT, started by two rad gals in California. Below are some of my favorite pieces -- and my collection just keeps growing, because... I mean, look at them! Read More
Oh, Napa. There's much to love, what with its acres of rolling grape vines and seemingly endless supply of fine wine and soft cheeses. Somehow despite being born in California (and residing in Northern California for most my life), I've yet to make the journey out to wine country -- until last weekend that is! While the weekend went by fairly quick, I'm already itching to plan another wine country trip (next time: Sonoma!) because it was a perfect mix of relaxation and exploration. I shared a video of my trip earlier, but wanted to break down some of my favorite stops I made while venturing around:
Oxbow Public Market
This lovely market is open 7 days a week and is a mecca for great food and local shopping. I especially loved that they had bikes for rent outside! Plus, it's just a quick cross on a bridge to old town, making it an easy area for exploration. I visited Oxbow Public Market twice on my trip, filling up on Ritual coffee and breakfast tacos from Casa, while snagging a new book and a couple unique culinary delights. From produce to gifts to beer and wine, they've got a little bit of everything to enjoy. Highly recommend at least a pit stop here during Napa to get a taste of some local items to bring back home with you. Read More
In the spirit of savoring the little things, I’ll be sharing a few things “worth noting” to me every other Friday. I love sharing a great book, show, product or even just a memorable moment from the week. "The little things? The little moments? They aren't little." - Jon Kabat Zinn.
I have a quote near my desk written in small type that reads "Life is not a dress rehearsal. Every day, you should have at least one exquisite moment." - Sally Karioth. While I was probably drawn to it because I grew up in theatre, I find it to be a lovely reminder to find joy in something every single day -- even if it's trying a new coffee or taking a different path to work on my bike to explore. The past couple weeks have contained full work days, good reads, an interesting talk by Michael Loop, and extra time with some of my favorite people. Here's some worth noting moments and favorite discoveries:
