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!
For someone who doesn’t even own AirPods, it’s surprising to even myself that this is the second time I’ve blogged about AirPod cases. Is it completely wrong that I want to own AirPods just so I can have a cute case? Honestly, does it even matter? This case is a playful way of paying homage to the OG Apple monitor and we love it. I love seeing a timeline of how far Apple products have come over the years and this merger between the two is awesome. If you’re looking to own these and keep your ‘Pods safe, you can buy the case [here] from elago. I don’t know how this fairs in comparison to other cases, but $13.99 doesn’t seem so bad!
Dress – Oak + Fort
In the last couple of years Oak + Fort has become one of my favorite brands. While it is stylish, I think the part that appeals to me the most is the comfort. At first glance, rarely anything looks flattering on me because it is all oversized. Interestingly enough, it’s the thing that I love the most about it. I grew up with much of the clothing around me having to be “tight” and “fitted” as per what was trendy at the time, but it never fit my personal style. I’ve had this oversized brown sweater dress for over a year, but it’s one of my favorite things because I can literally toss it on and go.
Fun fact: It’s also very warm so it’s perfect for a night out in the summer or through the fall and winter seasons.
Kobi Shue – Chasing This Feeling
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!Read more “SF Eats: OMA San Francisco Station”

Everyone here knows that I was introduced to my first Pendleton back in 2012 and I haven’t stopped talking about it since. It was the nicest gift that I ever received from blogging and the warmest thing that I own. I know this Air Jordan with the Pendleton print doesn’t look all that appealing, but that’s not what we’re doing for here. I’m all about the Pacific Northwest pride and as clunky as this sneaker is, we’re all about it. Nike Jordans and Pendleton are the ultimate Pacific Northwest collab coming out of Oregon.
A release of these is slated for November and will be going for $200 USD. Readers, would you wear these? How would you style them with your other Pacific Northwest belongings?
It’s interesting for me to see clips of “Sesame Street” now in 2019 because I have so much context and general life experience, but I often wonder how I would have grasped ideas like this as a kid. Watching this clip now, they graze over the idea of “drug addiction” without actually saying it. Is it because it’s just enough information that viewers will discuss it with their parents afterwards? This leads me to become even more fascinated by the producers and those that create the content of the show. Regardless, these are important things to discuss. Growing up, I did have peers that faced difficult home lives and obviously they weren’t discussed often, but there were subtle clues that you didn’t know how to ask about or you did and had to tread those waters when you got there.
This isn’t the first time I’ve shared “Karli’s” story on Yow Yow! but even through a tough upbringing, she’s such a positive light. I’m loving her story line and appreciate how much it is resonating with viewers.
