San Fran here I come

I will be traveling to the west coast this weekend for the international Fancy Food Show in San Francisco, CA. I will be working for my employer, Hippie Chow, who will have a booth at the show. I can’t wait to spend a foodie filled trip and meet some awesome culinary entrepreneurs. A few places I also hope to hit up include the famous Tartine Bakery, Blue Bottle Coffee, and The Slanted Door. Yummy food in my future!


No longer a virgin…

… a Frye virgin that is! I have been drooling over Frye boots for the past few years, enough to alert the sales associates as Nordstrom to keep an extra eye on me as I contemplate stealing them or robbing a bank to afford them. Kidding of course! Well, I have officially broken the ice with a new pair of Frye carson oxfords. I am in love! These will normally cost you $178 but I scored a pair at the Rack that brought them down to $69! Hollaaaa (I think I may have actually said that when I saw them and scared a little girl, but that’s beside the point.) I am on a low wardrobe budget and would definitely not consider myself to be a fashionista, rather someone who values well made items. The verdict? LOVE THEM. Seriously, I am already searching like crazy for Frye sales on the internet to get another pair. They look great with jeans, cords, trousers, tights + skirts, and dresses.

Well done, Frye, well done.

a lazy weekend deserves a post

I didn’t necessarily grab life by the horn this weekend, but it was still a good weekend. I ate, I drank, and watched The Bourne Identity for what might be the 1,000th time. I can’t get enough of Jason Bourne. Let’s just say if I get kidnapped by a hot assasin, I would be perfectly content. Anyways, here are some iPhone pics of the weekend.

Highlights: Finding a pair of Frye oxfords on sale at Nordstrom Rack!

Low point: Getting outbid on a fantastic antique arm chair. C’est la vie!

Clear glasses

There is something about clear glasses for lattes that make me swoon. I mean, just look at this beauty. How could you resist?

This was my regular order when I lived in Geneva, Switzerland for 5 months. I can’t speak french very well, despite 10+ years of study, but those baristas saved me the embarrassment by memorizing my order. Merci Beaucoup! The milk in Switzerland is so creamy and rich, I swear it is just creamer in a milk carton. At first I was a little apprehensive about this, but eventually learned to embrace dairy. If you ever get to go to Switzerland (the most underrated country in my opinion) try every piece of dairy you can get your hands on – cheese, milk, yogurt, ice cream – trust me, you will not regret it!
