Welcome to my home! My baby-proof styling and nursery

Last month, I had the opportunity to share some scenes from my home with the wonderful Camille Styles. Photographed by Maria del Rio, we showed a few areas that are fully styled, and yet fully kid-friendly. I want my daughter to fit into my life, rather than the other way around — in the best possible way. (Keeping [...]

Easter with friends

Fifteen pounds of uncured ham. (Note to self: Chargrilled ham is unbelievably delicious, but a raw ham is not for the faint of heart.) Eight friends, two visiting from Ireland. Two dogs. One baby. Lots of chopping, dicing, scooping, steaming, pouring, peeling, flaming, taste-testing, cheersing, sipping, chatting, playing and love. Lots of love. Easter with [...]

Sunny days in the Bay

Kirby Cove, where have you been all my life? On Saturday some friends and I discovered our new favorite sunny day spot, just a quick drive across the Golden Gate Bridge followed by an easy one-mile hike. It’s one of the most beautiful beaches I’ve ever been to. Incredible views, protection from the wind, lapping waves [...]

Highlights from Renegade

The weekend before last, I spent most of my Sunday at Renegade Craft Fair, and I did not come home empty handed. This was my fourth Renegade (last year I made it to Austin, SF and SF Holiday), and it seemed this time that the selection of sellers was more well-curated than ever, with less [...]

Q&A with Swapaholics founder Amy Chase (plus 25% off Thursday’s San Francisco swap!)

I met Amy Chase this spring in Austin at the Texas Style Council Conference, where we spoke on a panel together and she, appropriately, hosted a clothing swap. She has an excellent perspective on sustainable style, which translates into an equally excellent day job — since co-founding The Swapaholics in 2008, she now makes a living traveling the [...]

Lizzie Fortunato + Bodkin

I spent several hours yesterday on Polk Street in Russian Hill, brunching and browsing with a few awesome friends. I found this Lizzie Fortunato necklace at the lovely Anica and am weighing whether I can justify the price ($173). I’m sleeping on it a night or two! Isn’t it perfect with my Early Jewelry horseshoe necklace? [...]
