For years, I’ve been listening to all of my favorite LA bloggers raving about the egg sandwich from Eggslut. I’ve seen the pictures. I’ve heard what they had to say. And now, this video. I die. I had my very first egg sandwich when I moved to the Bay Area and I haven’t stopped ordering them since. (BTW the best one to order is from Plow in Potrero Hill) My friend Mandi and I have such a love for egg sandwiches that we have even considered trying every single one at every brunch in SF and rating them for all of you on Yow Yow! We haven’t given up on this idea yet. I can’t wait to try Eggslut the next time I’m in LA!

There are two things in Seattle that just can’t be rivaled in the Bay Area: our oysters and our sushi. Basically, Seattle is killin’ it when it comes to seafood. My days here in the Pacific Northwest are dwindling, but there’s no way that I’ll be okay leaving without having oysters here first. A couple of weeks ago, a new seafood bar opened up near me and while it was “okay” for the Bay Area, something about it just didn’t quite feel like home.

There are plenty of places to snag fresh oysters in Seattle, but my number one pick? Taylor Shellfish! They’ve got multiple locations, but I’ve frequented their Melrose Market and Queen Anne location the most. Locals – where do you go to? I’m pretty curious!

photo cred | A Beautiful Mess

Merry Christmas everyone!!! I hope you all have a wonderful time with your families and friends. I know, I for one, am enjoying my time back in Seattle and I think it’s going to be hard to return back to the Bay after such a lengthy and relaxing vacation.

Today, I was denied from both Starbucks and my favorite Dick’s Drive In because of the “holiday hours,” and while I didn’t get to satisfy my cravings, it meant that these employees got to reap the benefits of being at home with their loved ones just like I had the opportunity to all week. It just means that my hankering for sweets is at an all time high though. We already dug into our container of peppermint bark, but I’ve been without caffeine all day, which is… concerning. It’s a little too late to be drinking caffeine now, but how good does this gingerbread hot chocolate pictured above look? AMAZING.

The Closet: December 2014

Catbird Choupette Necklace – Rose Gold – $298

Typically I publish this list a week or so before Christmas since Kevin has said that he has used it for inspiration when shopping for presents for me in the past, but this year we just went straight to it and told each other what we wanted. This post is extremely accessory/jewelry heavy which is completely new for me, but with 2015 just around the corner, I figured – why not? I’m probably not going to get any of the things on this list, but I’m very much okay with it. Adult me needs to save $$$ anyways.

How to Ring in 2015 Right

Yumi Kim Beaded Elsa Dress – $300

TBH, we could’ve started this post a lot sooner, but lately I’ve been less than a planner than I’ve ever been in my life. You would think that I would have already planned out what I was going to do for New Years Eve already because normally that would’ve been decided weeks ago, but in fact, it’s still up in the air. It’s actually between seeing a DJ set in SF by Mayer Hawthorne or … you know…going to Vegas. So there’s that. Whatever the case – wherever I end up – having an outfit to wear on New Year’s Eve is something that I don’t skimp on. It’s actually one of my favorite holidays to dress up for (even though I don’t care about New Year’s Eve) because it’s the one time where you can look very sparkly and girly and what girl doesn’t love doing that for a night? So sorry for the late notice on this. If you see something you like just bite the bullet and purchase immediately so that it makes it in time for your big event!

Warning: We’ve got feels for the little black dress ahead!

A couple of weeks ago, I had the meal of my life on my day off at Takahashi Market in San Mateo. For weeks, I had been craving Loco Moco and now I’m finding myself in that same situation right now. You know how when you’ve been wanting something for some time and then you eat it and then you want it every week until you decide it’s time to stop? That feeling seems to happen to me a lot. Asian food is my comfort food and there’s nothing like a hot loco moco to make you feel warm and full on a rainy day. Must. Eat. This. Weekend. I think it’s about time that I started introducing Hawaiian food to another someone too so I’ll be rallying the friends soon.

How We Holiday Party 2014

Holiday party season is upon us and we’d be doing a disservice if we didn’t include a guide like we always do! I’ve only attended one work-related holiday party in my time so I don’t have too much experience. All I know is that last year, I wore a black dress with cut-outs and sheer fabric over the cut-outs. There were at least two other women at the party that wore sheer fabric so I felt like I had done right by being in the correct wheelhouse and theme. Having already purchased my holiday party dress for this year back in June and realizing that it is black, leather, and with a cut-out again, I’m noticing that maybe I’m just too much into a comfort zone. A holiday party is the one time out of the year where you get to try something different and even though I have my dress, I am still considering straying away from that. Here are some of my favorite picks for this year so far! Also, we’re doing this post a little bit earlier than last year so that you still have time to snag some dresses if you’d like!

A Giant Birdsnest

I first saw these pieces maybe a couple of years ago on the internet and now it looks like they are being brought back! The giant birdsnest for human looks like the ultimate comfy, but when I envision my future home, I just don’t know if there would ever be a place for it. It does look like it takes up a lot of space, doesn’t it?

The gigantic, cozy nest is made from a foam-padded wooden backwall that’s covered with wooden panels and filled with egg-shaped cushions that allow for ergonomic sitting positions. Designed by the Israel-based design firm OGE Creative Group, the Birdsnest is a “new and inspiring socializing space: a fusion of furniture and playground” where ideas come to get incubated.

The birdsnest is available in four different sizes and range from 2,700 – 7,900 Euros. The largest birdsnest can accommodate up to 16 people! While it may not be the perfect fit for my home, I would strongly advocate it for a friend’s home or even my office.

It is typically the fall/winter time that I find myself craving sweets and desserts the most. I used to just think that it was because it was near the holidays, but there’s something really special about warming up with dessert on a cold and chilly evening. Like a little kid, I’ve been asking lately, “Can we get dessert?” after finishing our meals out. Almost always, the answer is yes! Last night we dined at Uva Enoteca because as some of you know, I’ve been craving pasta. Endless bowls and bowls of pasta. Checking out the menu online before we headed over there, I noticed that  there was a pumpkin cheesecake and I knew by the end of the night it was going to be mine. Knowing that we were going to have a movie night late on that evening, we boxed it up and took it to go. It was the largest slice of pumpkin cheesecake we had ever had, but we couldn’t stop eating into it taking bites in between scenes and I suppose a couple of movies.

For a Sunday night though, I would be okay with a more low key dessert like apple slices with caramel. :)

My Seahawks gave me an anxious-ridden win today, but we pulled through nonetheless! Because of that, I’m currently craving Kukuruza Beast Corn from the Seattle popcorn shop. I’ve never actually tried the lime and blueberry mixture, but I’m completely mesmerized by these colors and the Seattle Seahawks spirit! Unfortunately, this was only available for a limited time, but I’m crossing my fingers that a) it will be back and b) the next time it’s back I’m actually back in Seattle to snag myself a bag of it!

This shop is just my favorite – it’s pretty exciting to see how much they’ve expanded since I last ate their popcorn in college!

Every night, around the same time every night, I do this thing where I start to get a little hungry and like that scene in Hook I start to think about what I would want to be eating if I could just magically make it appear! I know people are two things: a spam person or not a spam person, but I was raised on this stuff and had it for breakfast almost every weekend so I most definitely am a spam eater. When I was in Seattle last weekend, I was upset that I didn’t have time to stop by Kona Kitchen to pick myself up some of these and a side of mac salad! Oh the woes of no longer living in Seattle…

Just constantly hungry.
