Gold Glitter Nails

All week long I've been posting about my new found love of gold... so couldn't you have guessed this is what my nails looked like?! My other newest obsession are these Sally Hansen nails strips. If you haven't tried them, you must! They have no drying time, have already lasted a week w/o chipping and are easy peasy to apply! Seriously, do it!

Gold that Glitters

As I said yesterday, I'm all of a sudden unreasonably obsessed with anything gold - and don't get me started on gold and glittery.

And in case you haven't noticed... this week is going to be all about GOLD. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Railroad Revival Tour

Tonight we are going to the Railroad Revival Tour in Oakland. I simply can't wait for this collection of good music from bands I've been loving and listening to all year long!

Little known fact: I once took the train with my family all the way from California to Iowa and back.  What an adventure that was!

Is it possible to be in love with a website?

This last weekend I met the founder of 8tracks - an online radio website where artists, dj's, and otherwise muscially inclined people can create and upload "8 track" long playlists. 

I was at the end of my rope with pandora with its frequent song repeats and totally ridiculous follow-ups ... this happy hour run-in could not have happened at a better time. And while the appreciation for the reference to an eight-track is a little before my time, it has a nice nod to the lost art of the mix tape. 

No really, I am in LOVE. And if you like discovering new music and enjoy a musical journey throughout the day, you will be too!

Local Eateries {El Metate}

When people ask what my favorite part of living in the city is - the first thing that always comes to mind is getting try new I've decided to share my explorations with everyone here on my blog!

The first restaurant of note is the mexican food of El Metate, located just a mere three minute walk from our apartment, this place has quickly become a go to meal for me - especially when I'm on my own. The bright yellow building will catch your eye from a mile away. And while my most frequent order is a carnitas burrito regular - you'll often find me opting for the steak nachos instead - which are good but definitely not the highest rating on my life long search for the best nacho (currently held by Chanos in LA). Oh, and don't forget to try their classic tortilla chips wrapped in yellow paper with a twist and homemade house salsa - delish!

Stay tuned for more restaurants I try and love coming to you here!

Curiosity Shoppe

I had the random fortune of popping in to the Curiosity Shoppe on Valencia Street last weekend... not remembering that this was where The Collection a Day was being exhibited. This is such a cool collection to see in person! Happy collecting everyone! And happy Monday!

There a very few albums that I know all the words to all the songs - and Paul Simon's Graceland is definitely top on that list. Got ready today listening to all these songs. It's going to be a great day!

There a million different ways to store and organize your jewelry, but lately I've been dreaming of wonderful ways you can also put it on display, as seen in these photos! Using jewelry as decoration or art for your home is such a lovely way to enjoy your it everyday!

Fireworks & Fools

Today is our third year anniversary, of what you might ask, nothing specific. Roughly three years ago today we knew we were more than just friends. And while April Fools Day may be a weird choice to some, it felt just right to me... what a fun day to celebrate filled with pranks, laughter, and fun. To head into the weekend, as the Giants season gets underway, I give you a photo we took at a game last summer. Happy April Fools everyone!
