Living in San Francisco still feels like a dream and even when I have a bad day, all I have to do is go outside, walk for ten minutes and then everything looks and feels better. After all, nothing can bet the big wide blue. These past weeks weren’t the easiest I’ve had with my wisdom teeth surgery and feeling sorry for myself BUT… other then that, life is good and I’ll tell you why.
I discovered a few coffee gems in the past few weeks and you know me, coffee is such an important piece of my everyday routine. One of these spots was The Plant, Organic Cafe. It’s located at Pier 3 and the view, oh the view of the ocean… plus, they make the most beautiful and tasty coffee.
And then, there was the most exciting reunion of the century. After being an online friend of Igor, the energetic face behind the Happy Interior Blog I finally had the absolute pleasure to meet him in person and introduce him to some of my all time favorite SF spots. It was one of those moments, when you meet someone for the first time but feels like you’ve been friends since forever. On the same breath I have to mention that I also fell in love with Philippe along the way. While with these two, I entered chocolate heaven that goes by the name Dandelion Chocolate. It was my first time there, although I passed their door many many times before. The minute we entered the door, a breeze of chocolate filled our bodies and let me tell you, it’s one special feeling. If chocolate is your passion or obsession (like mine and Philippe’s) that is the place for you. AND… don’t forget to order the nutella cookie. It’s a must but then again all their sweets are a must.
With all the excitement, I almost forgot sharing with you, two pretty special events that I attended. The first was the first birthday of MakeShift Society. MakeShift is a special co-working clubhouse that serves as my second home while blogging. It’s also where I’m lucky enough to get to know some of the city’s most creative and friendly people. The other event was the launch of the new Luvocracy App. Have you heard of Luvocracy before? It feels like Pinterest but with Luvocracy, you can actually buy what ever you see or pin (a bit dangerous, I know!). You can follow my Luv Page and witness my wishlists (they are growing by the hour.)
What else… I went with my sweet mister to a mustard workshop. Yep, there is such a thing. It was super fun afternoon but I’ll tell and show you some deets?? in a whole different post. It has nothing to do with mustard but I also discovered Paxton Gate‘s plant garden and I have a feeling that I’ll keep coming back for more green moments. Last but definitely not least, I danced my way to the Maroon5 concert and had a blast. I guess that’s why I don’t have any decent picture to share from that evening.
Anyways, I hope you like my “all over the place” San Francisco Break and I promise to try my best be less hectic in the next episode.
