Proud Owner:

We didn’t make a mention of it at the start of the month, but as some of you know, it is my birthday month! This isn’t my first time celebrating it in the Bay Area, but it will be the first time I’m celebrating it as a resident. My friend Spencer and I are just two days apart so we’re having a little bit of a celebrating this year and decided to purchase a pinata.

I’ve always wanted to have one for my adult birthday – and let’s be real, there will probably be one present at my future wedding too. They’re just so cute! We’re excited for little Ralph to arrive to us soon!

A Collection Part 39

Would you believe that it has already been 4 months since our last “A Collection Part” post? I can already hear Veronica’s voice in the back of my head saying, “I can.” Every time I speak to the girl, she’s always asking for another one. Little does she know, constructing these take forever! Good news though, I’ve already started building Part 40 so hopefully we won’t have to wait as long for the next one, but if she had it her way, it would be every week.

Making this post this time around was quite refreshing to me. Veronica once asked me how I choose the pictures that I do for this post and I don’t know if I was ever able to give a great answer. I probably just said that I chose the pictures I liked, but I’d like to elaborate on that a little bit. I used to do a bit of photography back in high school and in the early days of college, I brought my camera with me everywhere I went. I love that these photos are being taken in ways that I never thought of before. They are various shots that spark something in me, but I have no idea what it is and because I can’t explain it or put it into words of some sort, I love it. Maybe that’s not a better explanation than before, but it makes sense to me!

A Collection Part 38

Happy Mid-September everyone!

It’s amazing how quickly this year has flown by. Even though I’m about to embark on my second year out of school, there’s a part of me that still wants to follow suit in that pattern. I started my first job at the start of fall one year ago and now one year later, I’m doing the same thing again. There was something about the new school year that I loved and it wasn’t just that I had a new set of classes, a new wardrobe, or that I was one step closer to starting THIS current life, but it was the idea of starting the year with a fresh slate – wiping everything clean, getting rid of the old and progressing towards the new. That might be one of the reasons why September is considered more of my new year than January. I always like to start Mondays with reflective posts (besides Wedding Mondays!) so here’s A Collection for you :)

I found myself at my favorite book store in Capitol Hill last night and finally got a glimpse of the infamous September Issue by Vogue. Every year, I know that the issue is going to be massive, but I still find myself very curious and in need of holding it in my arms just to see how much bigger it is against my body. It’s amusing to me and as I’m sure – amusing to those around me.

By now,  we know that Jennifer Lawrence is on the cover and looking stunning, but did you also know that the cover is making the rounds on Instagram under the hashtag #voguestagram?! Animals love fashion too, alright?

Puppy Love

Meet Sunny Obama! What a lovely new addition to the family.

Sunny was born in Michigan in June 2012, and arrived at the White House today. Just like Bo, she’s a Portuguese Water Dog, which works great for the Obamas because of allergies in their family.

Oh my goodness, I want her. She seems so precious!

Dog Does Yoga With His Owner

Swoon of the morning. Can we talk about how adorable this video is of a chihuahua named Panchino doing yoga alongside his owner? Can I have a dog like this? A little mini me?

The White House Twitter Gets “Mean Girls”

bo mean girls

I have said from the beginning (more like after President Obama got re-elected for his second term) that his PR team has been on point. Not only do they convey messages that are heartwarming and memorable, but they also like to prove that they are with the times and can throw out modern references every now and then. Today, Obama’s team threw out what will go down in history as one of the best tweets ever by tweeting this “Mean Girls” reference.

This tweet embodies three things that we love – Mean Girls, dogs, and the inner workings of the Oval Office.

A Collection Part 37

I love seeing the difference in A Collection posts between seasons. With summer, there is so much light in these photos, the idea that we have the capacity to do anything, and some weight lifted off our shoulders. I have so much hope for the rest of 2013 and my hope is that it will be better! I hope you all have a lovely weekend and that these photos can do their best to inspire beauty and life into you!

San Francisco Hotels’ Outrageous Amenities

photo cred |  Curbed

Is everything in San Francisco better? It sure seems like it with the amount of posts we’ve been doing on the city lately. One thing is for sure – everything in San Francisco is much more expensive than say…anywhere else. Especially Seattle. I just came across a post this morning outlining some of the most extravagant amenities that their hotels are offering and was surprised to say the least especially because I forgot to take advantage of one amenity when I was at Hotel Monaco last month. Not only is the hotel dog-friendly, but they also offer a program called “Guppy Love” in which they allow their guests to take care of a complimentary goldfish during their stay. The hotel staff is trained to feed and care for the fish  so you don’t have to take the role of its owner yourself, but you can have some company if you’d like. If only I had known this just a few weeks ago…

For more hotels and their amenities, click here for the rest of the article.
