i am very busy.

So, about today’s blog post… yeah, I definitely forgot to write one today. Oops. I leave for vacation tomorrow and it’s becoming all too clear that my mind is… elsewhere already. There’s something about this trip that has me feeling flustered. Maybe it’s the impending 11 hour flight, maybe it’s the fact that I haven’t packed yet or that I’m absolutely exhausted from a relentless schedule and zero days off since I have no idea when. I don’t think I’ve ever been this disorganized before a trip. Usually I am a calm, cool, collected traveler. Does this happen to everyone?

While I’m away, some of my amazing friends will be guest posting here. They’ve delicious recipes, crafty DIYs, inspirational travel journals, and much, much more. Stay tuned and I’ll be back November 4!

must shop // Schatzi in San Francisco

I consider myself to be a vintage shopping aficionado, especially in the way of home decor, which is probably why I’m so excited to share the news of Schatzi. Located in the Mission, here in San Francisco, Schatzi is truly my new favorite place to shop for quirky-cool accents for my home. Shopkeepers/owners Charles and Kelvin have the best aesthetic, self labeled as “rustic to refined – mid-century modern abuts folky primitive next to 1970s glamour.” The fact is that no matter your taste, I strongly believe you’ll find exactly what you need (read: want) at this gorgeous little boutique.
rustic and refined home decorFor me, vintage shopping is all about the details, something that positively abounds at Schatzi. I planned to spend about 30-45 minutes in the store… and ended up being there for 2 hours. I just kept discovering more and more the longer I looked. Charles and Kevin did a really great job of curating vignettes on their shelves, so it’s the perfect inspiration to re-create the looks in your own home. vintage glass and brass quirky vintage finds

I love classics like popcorn, but I also love to put a twist on traditional treats! Popcorn is a great base for all kinds of flavors, plus it’s the perfect treat to bring to a party, or just to have at home as a snack. During the holidays I like to gather my best girlfriends around the TV with a giant bowl of popcorn to watch sappy holiday movies. This year I plan to surprise my ladies with these 3 delicious fancy popcorn recipes.

all ears // october // a spotify playlist inspired by the moon and night sky. give it a listen on

This month’s playlist is dedicated to my beacon in the night, the moon. Whenever I feel the pull of the ocean or unsettling thanks to Mercury, it’s hard for me deny the impact the moon has on my being. On nights when I find myself riddled with insomnia (often), I lay flat and glimpse the moon through the window above my bed — ever calming, tranquil, and the greatest reminder to be present. While I currently live in a city entirely too bright to see the stars, at times I drive far, far out of my way to catch a peek of them, too. There’s something about the night sky that’s also just a bit romantic, too. I envision nights spent in a field, laying in the bed of an old pickup, holding hands with the one you love. This is what I’d play.

You can play via this widget or add the playlist via Spotify:

FriedaSophie Jewelry

There’s no denying that crystals, geodes, and minerals (ok, Hank) are all having a moment. So you can imagine my excitement when I discovered SF-based FriedaSophie Jewelry on Etsy. Each piece of jewelry is hand-crafted using one-of-a-kind gemstones, minerals, and natural specimens. Furthermore, FriedaSophie hand selects each stone and ensures that all pieces are made using ethnical business practices. Then she combines them with 14k gold fill metals for these truly gorgeous pieces.

FriedaSophie Jewelry FriedaSophie JewelryFriedaSophie JewelryThese pieces really speak to FriedaSophie’s love of traveling her lust for the beauty of the natural world. It is hard to pick a favorite — like, really, really hard.
