I was lucky enough to spend the Fourth of July in Lake Tahoe with some of my favorite people. It was so wonderful to spend some time out of the city – it’s always nice to slow down a little bit and remember that there’s more to life than our 9-5’s.
Today is also my one year anniversary of living in SF, and what a wild and crazy ride it’s been. If the next year is anything like this past one has been, I’m one lucky girl. Thanks for having me, San Francisco – I love ya!
Last week, Refinery29 S.F. posted about paper illustrator Chloe Fleury, and I just had to share the love!
First of all, her studio is amazing — particulary her use of a wooden dowel to keep her washi tape and ribbon in an easy-to-access place, and how saturated with color and textures it is. Not to mention, Chloe is adorable, and her work is so detailed and unique. Head over to Refinery29 to see the full tour!
Make sure to check out Chloe’s studio, hopscotch design — her commissioned pieces are seriously jaw-dropping.
My favorite pieces are her S.F. neighborhood posters (I’m so curious about what North Beach would look like…)
I think I may need to treat myself to the DIY Paper Rabbit Bust kit…

This week, I finally got to see Golden Gate bridge from the Marin Headlands, and let me tell you — it is AMAZING. Every viewpoint was packed with people, and you couldn’t blame ’em. The sun was shining, the Bay was a deep turquoise and there wasn’t a cloud in the sky. We eventually made our way over to Point Bonita to see the lighthouse (G’s grandpa’s panoramic photographs hang inside!), and it was a perfect day for a little hike.
I was thinking about how many times I’ve seen the the bridge since I’ve been in San Francisco and how different it looks every time. I looked back through the photos I’ve taken and decided to make a little collage of my favorite lady in the city.
