Singapore Promotes Social Distancing Using Bright Tape

Singapore wins the award for the best method of promoting awareness in social distancing. While I’m seeing painted footprints in my neighborhood to signal how far apart people should distance distance themselves, it’s not enough. Sometimes it isn’t even working. Unfortunately, in San Francisco, it feels like people are following the motions, but not as precisely as they could be.

The large dots, pictured above, signify to customers not only where to stand, but also where to wait in line.

Cut’s Awkward Dating

If I didn’t have Cody Ko’s channel, I’d be missing out on a whole section of internet culture. Most of the time, I don’t think I need it, but his channel is full of content that just makes me laugh. While everyone is raving about Netflix’s “Too Hot Too Handle,” I’m trying my hardest to stay away from it for as long as possible. Instead I came across this gem from Cut (not to be confused with The Cut) who has been hosting their own online dating show that is savage.

% Arabica’s Shanghai Renovation

Even though Angel and I have only been to two countries in Asia together, one of the first things we do is scope out the coffee scene once we arrive. Coffee in our daily lives is essential. But I also think how a coffee shop lives in a community or a neighborhood has some significance as well. I love seeing how other countries put their own spin on espresso. Japanese coffee company [% Arabica] just underwent a renovation in their Shanghai spot and it is stunning. From the outside looking in, you can see everything leaving the space completely transparent. Surrounding the shop is also a beautiful concrete courtyard.

Just one look at this and I know that this is definitely a place that we’d stop into. The coffee company has several locations internationally with plans to open in the United States.

Viktor & Rolf

It’s a bit strange to think that what was going to be my heaviest wedding year yet is now non-existent. Today would have been the kickoff to my wedding season and being a bridesmaid for one of my best friend’s wedding. If there’s anything that brings me a bit of solace, it’s knowing that she’s not alone. She isn’t the only bride to be impacted by COVID-19 and she’s got a network of people that are determined to get her married when this is all over. Naturally, this also impacts bridal season. Luckily, Vogue is still highlighting these collections as they come out so we will too!

Home Friends DJ Set

Happy Saturday everyone – this week for me was particularly challenging. Just as I thought I was getting used to shelter-in-place and some days even feeling like I was thriving, I was hit with a pile of bricks with reality. I missed my friends and for the first time, I really did feel lonely and isolated. Each day will ebb and flow into being easier and challenging. Today, we’re going to choose to look on the positive side of things. I threw on one of my favorite Reformation dresses, put on some mascara, and am looking forward to this dance party / DJ set today. For the last two weeks, I’ve been watching Harley Viera-Newton and her husband Ross spin some new releases and classics and it has been bringing up my mood. The set is about two hours, but you’ll want to join from the very start so that you don’t miss anything.
