Yow Yow x Winc

It has been awhile since I’ve done some regular partnerships, but [Winc] came into my life at just the right time. Over the summer, I had just written a [post] about how a bottle of wine is the easiest gift to give any host. Sure enough, shortly after that I was reached out to by Winc to partner with them and receive my first shipment of four bottles. I don’t often go through bottles of wine quickly, but it’s so useful to have on hand when I’m bringing the small party back to my house or if I’m headed out to another’s home.

We’ll save ourselves the post about partnerships in the next coming months, but since I’m currently working with Winc for their fall campaign, I wanted to extend the opportunity to all of you.

Using this [link] you easily get your own set of 4 wines for a $22 discount and complimentary shipping. Altogether, that brings your total to $39, which is a steal! Get ready for all of your holiday needs and make sure you’ve got your bottles on hand for entertaining this season!

Park Winters Wedding

Dress – Nordstrom / Clutch – Urban Outfitters / Boots – Something Navy

We’ve spent some time talking about Sherwin’s wedding earlier this year, but this is the first time I’m revealing what I wore! When considering a wedding guest dress, I always try to have the couple in mind. It’s fun to get to choose elements of what I think they’re style is and try to re-create that in an outfit. In all honesty though, this dress isn’t quite Anji or Sherwin’s aesthetic at all. Their engagement photos were taken in Everlane and was totally minimalistic.

Some trends that I wanted to incorporate into a wedding outfit this year did include polka dots or pink. This dress just happened to have both. I always wear very standard heels to weddings, but I wanted to try and push it by trying to wear the white boots that I love. I’m not sure if I pulled it off, but I seemed to think that they were working the day of. Since the wedding was early spring, the sleeves were appropriate. In general, it’s a bit of a conservative dress, but the slit adds a little something.

The wedding took place at Park Winters, which has been one of my favorite venues to date. It was perfectly separated into distinct areas for the event: ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, and dance party. Everything flowed so easily and it was such a beautiful evening and celebration.

SF Eats: U Dessert Story

I’ve had my fair share of desserts in life and I was convinced that I’ve tried it all. However, nothing could prepare me for what was [U Dessert Story]. The menu items are complex, extravagant and more than enough for one person. This was shared between myself and two other friends, but I think we could have added a fourth and still been content. Their website states that their desserts are exceptional (truth) and influenced by Korean, Japanese, and Thai passion. You can’t go wrong with anything you order there, but we were highly recommended to try either their Bingsoos or their Toast. Picture above is the Mango Sticky Rice Toast with mango puree and mango ice cream!

SF Eats: OMA San Francisco Station

Earlier this year, I shared a quick snippet of my birthday at McDonald’s which was glorious! However, that wasn’t the only celebrating we did. Before McDonald’s, we headed to my first Omakase ever. I’ve always been intrigued by the idea of it, but never had the occasion to try it. I can get by with some simple sashimi and a few rolls usually! My birthday felt like an opportune time to try this out so I took this recommendation from an Instagram friend of mine and went to [OMA San Francisco Station.] It hadn’t been open for long, but we recommend still making a reservation. They accommodate eight seats and a few times that they serve per day so walk-ins are tough.

It was a different feeling receiving each piece of nigiri one at a time. Since the price is steep and the pieces are minimal, I was worried about being hungry afterwards. Obviously, that quickly diminished as I got to the end of the meal and realized that you can order extra when the Omakase is done. It was nice to be able to savor each piece as it was crafted by our chef and to spend these moments enjoying the meal in a way I hadn’t experienced before.

We had such a great time for my birthday that we actually went back for a second time to celebrate Kevin’s. These photos are from both occasions! It’s important to note that their menu has four different categories which include different price points and amounts of Nigiri. Each time, we chose the Nozomi, which includes 12 pieces of Nigiri and one Temaki for $85. While I haven’t tried other Omakases in the city, I have heard that this price and the quality is a great deal!
