Month in Review : August 2017 – My First Month & Third Wonder of the World

Helllloooo and welcome to my first Month in Review!

I’ve been meaning to do a blog post series like this for a while now, and finally got around to doing it. Since I don’t post as frequently as I would like to, hopefully these monthly reviews will give you a better glimpse into my life.
(and in the meantime, guilt me into actually posting more often)

This series is going to be very casual and similar to what I would normally write as a WhatsApp message or a long wall of text to a friend. Also don’t be surprised if you see more emojis than you were expecting to, I can finally let loose 😛

Ready? Let’s check out what happened in August!

Life in Technicolor: Visiting San Francisco’s Color Factory

Paris may have the Louvre and New York may have the MoMA, but San Francisco has something even better – The Color Factory. 😉 

The Color Factory is a pop-up exhibit that’s going on for two months in downtown San Francisco. It includes over 10,000 colored ribbons, a giant yellow ball pit, and about a dozen rooms full of color – plus, there are even a few sweet treats! 

Sounds awesome, right? The demand for tickets was so high, that they sold out in the first week – and everything for August and September are totally booked. I was lucky enough to get a few tickets for my friends and I – including you guys! 

Are you ready to (virtually) see what’s on the other side of the rainbow? Let’s go! Continue reading

95 BEST Books About San Francisco – Must Read Books if you Love SF

95 must read books about san francisco

Nikita Khrushchev called it the most beautiful city in the United States, while Ashleigh Brilliant noted that “there may not be a heaven, but there is San Francisco.” Anthony Bourdain said that anyone who doesn’t have a great time in San Francisco is pretty much dead to him.

But the best way to sum it up is through Rudyard Kipling’s quote: “San Francisco has only one drawback – it’s hard to leave.” And it’s true!

One of my favorite ways to ‘travel’ without actually buying a plane ticket is to read books about that place. Get wrapped up in a juicy fiction novel, flip through the photos of a coffee table book … heck, you can even get lost on the streets of a tourist guide (hey there, Lonely Planet!) or fill in the blanks of a coloring book.

My 2017 Goals & What I learned in 2016

Happy 2017, guys!

I haven’t been making “resolutions” for the past few years because I figured my problems would work themselves out on their own (lol), but there’s something about 2017 that made me want to write up some goals for the new year. Plus, 17 has always been my lucky number – maybe 2017 will be my lucky year?

If you haven’t read my 2016 Year In Review, there’s the link. Let’s see what’s in store for 2017 :)
