On the weekends I try to rejuvenate myself by being out in nature. One of my favorite places to go is the Presidio Trails. Every time I go to the Ecology Trail, I instantly feel swept away into the country. Stunning California poppies and the eucalyptus trees put me in a good mood. The grasslands and chirping birds are so relaxing and well worth a visit, especially on a sunny day. What do you do to feel refreshed? Have a great long weekend!!

Heirloom CafĂ© is my favorite restaurant, I often come here for my birthday. I love everything about it; the interior is so simple and so chic, the food is deliciously sophisticated, the wine selection is outstanding. If you are in the mood for elegance, quality, and refinement- Heirloom takes the cake. Every time I come here I leave with a smile, and exclaim “that was perfect!”.

I had my apartment feng shuied once and was told that my back porch represented my love life. Ever since a little part of me cringes when a plant dies and I won’t let this lemon tree go– even though it hasn’t produced lemons in years. I don’t even want to know what that means and I don’t really believe any of it. I do know my porch could use a little love. I hate to admit it but I had my vacuum cleaner out there. Since I don’t really have a yard or a garage, my porch has been a hold-all for my bike, backpack, and random storage items. I finally said enough, the vacuum has to find a new home. A good clean-out of this little space made it a space I enjoy hanging out in and I am hoping to spruce it up a little more, for now this is where it’s at. If you want to see more of my place: click here.

B. Patisserie is the place to go for perfect pastries reminiscent of the streets of Paris. The owners, Belinda Leong and Michel Suas, are both experts in French pastries and well known in their industry. They can create the perfect croissant, tart, or macaron with that subtle, delicate touch of perfection. The Plum Almond Financier is not to be missed- I am smitten.

Oliver Nisch owns Iron & Steam Espresso Bar which is operated out of his wife Lori’s bar the Hi-Lo Club. I had the pleasure of visiting their well designed San Francisco apartment. Oliver told me about his many travels and how he learned to live with less. You don’t need much to live a beautiful life– just some really great vintage biker jackets, which he collects. Oliver is a furniture designer and he made all of his furniture, you can check him out at Form Bureau. There is so much natural light in their apartment which makes painting the walls gray a great choice. I love how the light reflects on their walls. Of course they have an amazing vintage espresso machine in their kitchen. Coffee and design– I’m loving their lifestyle.
