Here it is, my San Francisco photo diary. I was seriously overwhelmed by the amount of photos I took this trip. I narrowed it down to a few that would explain it the best. I spent four days in the Bay Area and I loved every second of it. After my flight was delayed it was nice to end up at the Cliff House for an early dinner. The perfect way to start my trip was overlooking the water while chowing down some clam chowder. Mornings were started at Peet's coffee where I either enjoyed an iced mocha or matcha green tea latte. The first "official" day started out in Union Square. Super touristy but totally worth it when there is a Barney's New York. After a quick walk from my hotel (The Opal) I excitedly walked into Barney's hoping to find a Balenciaga bag on sale (kidding). Am I the only one who gets all flustered when I am around designer handbags? Embarrassing I know. After picking out all the future handbags I would like to purchase I found myself trying on a few Balenciaga and Saint Laurent bracelets. I had seen the Balenciaga leather wrap bracelets before but was not convinced. It wasn't until I tried it on that I got it. And I had to have it. That being said I picked up a Balenciaga bracelet and a Helmut Lang Wrap Skirt (separate posts for both). Moving on I made my way to Fisherman's Wharf where I enjoyed a relaxing lunch at "Hard Water". How cool is that name. Hard Water is primary a bar that specializes in whiskey and they happen to serve food there too. The rest of the day finished off with riding the cable car to Lombard street and dinner at Ruth's Chris Steak House. If you are a fan of meat, like a nice New York steak then add Ruth's Chris Steak House to your bucket list before you die. I am telling... just do it. Next day started out in Haight Ashbury. I think Haight Ashbury is one of the coolest places you can visit. I loved going in all the shops. There is a mix of forward thinking fashion, skate, vintage, and just plain weird. I also went in a really great bookstore and local market. After strolling down Haight Ashbury I went over to the Japanese Tea Garden to cool off. On the way to the Japanese Tea Garden I went through Presidio and Pacific Heights. Some of the nicest real-estate in California. I have a fetish when it comes to beautiful homes. Later that day, I met a friend who showed me the view of the Golden Gate Bridge from the North-west side. We also went to Fort Barry, saw rescued seals, went to Muir Beach, and finished the night off with dinner in Sausalito. The last day ended in lunch near Fisherman's Wharf and more driving through the city. This was not the first time I have been to San Francisco but it was the first time I really saw the city for what it was. Full of life. I could definitely see myself living in San Francisco.

New in: Balenciaga Giant Gold Bracelet "Triple Tour Anthracite". I have always found these Balenciaga bracelets interesting. It wasn't until I tried it on at the Barney's in San Francisco that I decided it was worth getting. This is my first leather wrap bracelet (don't think a Chan Luu counts). I think this bracelet is a really nice addition to my jewelry collection considering it is easy to match with other jewelry. I also don't have any statement bracelets and I think this Balenciaga bracelet will hold up just fine on it's own. The hard part was choosing which color to get but knowing me... I always get black.

New in: Diptyque Candle

I told myself I wouldn't buy another candle until I used a few up but my plans never go accordingly. Whoops... As usual I cave into buying a candle every time I am in Anthropologie. I can't help it... everything is so perfect in there. Anthropologie stores makes me wish I lived in a huge home in the wine country of France or Italy. If you are a fan of mokara orchid, white lily, and spring moss scents then this is the candle for you. You don't even need to burn it. The scent is so nice it acts as an air freshener. Only kidding. Plus the container the candle sits in was too cute to pass up. Behind the Voluspa candle is a little bowl I also picked up from Anthropologie. I have been looking for the perfect little bowl to put jewelry in but then I found a use to put my sticky notes in it instead. I like that the bowl has some detail and style to it but still remains cohesive with the rest of the decor in my room.
