#WWIM8

You guys, I am so late at life. Here are some snaps from the WorldWide InstaMeet #8 from January! A big thanks again to @mrbrock21 and @barce for hosting. There was a huge turnout, and I finally got to meet some amazing folks that I’ve been following on Instagram for a while. (Looking at you, @elizabethgilmore and @thereallukes!) 

I got some wonderful shots of the Golden Gate Bridge- a feat I’m particularly ecstatic about, but if you’ve seen any Instagram belonging to a San Franciscan, you’ve already seen it on your feed a million times over… Let me revel in my own mini-victories, guys.) 

I’m looking to launch a bigger project soon which is perhaps why the blog has hit a bit of a slow patch. Enjoy!










Checked

I never actually let go of all my button-ups and booties throughout the summer, but hey, now that the mercury’s dropping, it finally looks seasonally appropriate. I will be eternally envious of those who can seamlessly oscillate between the bright hues and pastel florals in summer and spring to the muted and warm tones in the chillier autumn and winter seasons. 

The item of this whole ensemble that got the most props at last week’s #SFAdventureMeet? Ten dollar sunglasses from ZeroUV. Rachel Comey who? 

Huge thanks to Simone Anne for some of these awesome shots! She’s a wonderful photographer I met at the instameet; for more of her work, check out her gallery, blog, and instagramThe other shots are taken by Nino (pretty much the culprit behind all shots of me) and I’m always in awe of his photography and its constant improvement over time. Check out more on his instagram!

Fall weather, I’m ready.







Photo Excursions

Outings with Nino are always multifaceted and exciting, and this time I think we’ve outdone ourselves. Since the Instameet, we’ve been following some serious Instagram heavy-hitters and getting huge photo inspiration all week. The result? Shooting at several different locations within the span of six hours (and even skipping lunch to do so). Locations include: abandoned schools, Berkeley Marina, Treasure Island views of San Francisco, Sutro Bath Ruins, and the Marin headlands. We don’t like to stay still for too long.

Here are some of my shots from that day. 









Silk, Leather, & Beanie Weather

Parting with any item you’ve held on to for years can be bittersweet.

But perhaps the hurt can be healed quicker when replaced with something shiny and new. Cue: a new leather jacket. I’ve held onto my previous leather jacket before this one for at least 5 years. Yes, I have managed to stubbornly hang on to a less-than-spectacular jacket since my high school days.  I rationalized for years to not buy myself a new one. Although it was beat up and cheaply made, I went with the mantra “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” While I realize that a new jacket is a triumphant moment for solely me, I’m finally coming around to putting in a little more time and research into purchases to avoid ill-fitting jackets, especially if I intend to hold onto it for a while. It seems like 5 years is the length to beat now? Game on.

Wearing: Zara jacket   -   Everlane Shirt   -   Club Monaco jeans   -   Rachel Comey boots (similar here)   -   Muji beanie   -   Daniel Wellington watch   -   Whistles bag   -   Grandpa’s old Ray Ban “Clubmaster” Sunglasses   -   J.Crew chain bracelet   -   Bangles from a flea market in Oahu








Huge thanks (as usual) to Nino for these shots!

Recipe: Roasted Peaches


Summers in Davis are hot and dry, making the bi-weekly trip to the Farmer’s Market that much more grueling. In spite of the sweltering heat, there are popsicles, tubs of kettle korn, and fresh fruits that make the trek all worth the while. With September coming around the corner, I’m finding myself stocking up on summer fruits much more frequently than I have in June and July. Favorites being yellow peaches and nectarines.   I’m always taking them on the go to work, putting them in smoothies, making cobblers or galettes, or my recent favorite - roasted peaches.  

Ingredients

  • One peach, cut in half
  • 1/2 tbs butter
  • 1 tbs honey or brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Melt the butter, then mix in the sweetener of choice and cinnamon. 
  3. In a glass pan, place the peaches cut side down and drizzle the butter mixture over the peaches. Make sure it’s evenly coated over peaches.
  4. Bake for 10-15 minutes and cool on a wire rack.

I usually eat them with a scoop of greek yogurt and chopped almonds as a snack, but on days when I’m feeling indulgent, vanilla ice cream becomes my pairing of choice.

Kinfolk Honey Harvest

Mason jars, mismatched plates, good vibes, and a myriad of honey flavors to consume off of tiny plastic spoons. This was the basis of the Kinfolk event that Nino and I attended this past weekend. Kinfolk Magazine concocted the concept and with the help of local honey farms and several event coordinators, successfully created a chain of international honey events. I was excited to finally meet follow Kinfolk fans; I adore the magazine’s engaging stories which are accompanied by aesthetically perfect photographs. I’ve been following them for quite a while, but this was my first event.

Despite the expansive trip that lay ahead of us, we were jittery and excited as we headed north to Marshall Honey Farm. Although we were given no specific details of the event, we had our own personal agendas: Nino insisted that we played with bees in bee suits, I wanted to meet other Kinfolk kinfolk (ha), and we craved some amazing shots of the whole ordeal.




With cameras slung along our necks and empty stomachs, we were ready. We watched a slightly dated yet cheeky video about bees, listened to Mr. and Mrs. Marshall tell the story behind their farm while sampling their wide array of honeys, suited up to see the bees at work, and infused our own honey to take home while snacking and meeting new people.






The jar on the left, a orange and lavender infused honey. The jar on the right, a lemon, ginger, and mint concoction.

The Marshalls were entertaining and hospitable. They joked and playfully bantered back and forth. While giving a rundown of their “country boy meets city girl” story, their passion and knowledge of their craft was obvious. They prided themselves on making honey in an honest fashion; looking around the farm, the resources were modest and lacking in any fancy machinery.

Favorite quote of the day comes from Mr. Marshall- “You can do whatever you want as long as you work like a fool.”

 









Of course, ,some extra honey for the road. I got a jar of the Fairmont honey, Nino got a block of a honeycomb. 




Goodbye, Diet

After a calming train ride to Emeryville, I was well on my way to a much needed retreat   from the inferno that is known as Davis, California. After making rounds to Asha tea house for boba, Kingpin for fresh doughnut holes, Angeline’s for Southern Creole food, and Jupiter for drinks, I’m left uncomfortably full but extremely content. But it’s sooo worth it; welcome back to the bay.




No trip is complete without random wanderings too.

Event pics & blog post up on my website :) 

Yes, this is me debuting it for the first time.

I’ll be posting on there more often now.
