I hope you all had a safe, joyous, and loving Thanksgiving! One childhood holiday memory that always makes me smile is the family sitting around the table after dinner looking at the paper. We would make our plan of attack for Black Friday. Who would make the run for the televisions? Who would get the lawn furniture? Which refrigerator or washer and dryer would mom get this year? What stores had the latest boot style on sale? It was all so invigorating.
Twirling in Tech
Joey Rodolfo is the man behind Buki. His vision was to create a sportswear line that works with your body. The definition of “modern lifestyle” has evolved to a hustle and ever-changing. It would make sense for our clothes to enhance our capabilities, not weigh us down.

Umber & Ochre: The full circle
100% cotton and the beach seem like a blissful combination. The light and soft plant is happiness, breezy, easy, and serene. Umber & Ochre has managed to morph a brand image from their material’s connotation all while being environmentally conscious.
Miniest of Mini’s
Never be afraid to venture to other departments while shopping. Sometimes I can’t find exactly what I’m looking for, so I search the men’s or plus size section. This button down mini is a 1X and lightly sewn to fit my body better.
Back to a beautiful reality
I am finally back in San Francisco. As much as I loved seeing my family, being in the middle of nowhere makes your brain go numb. Baker Beach is definitely a spot that I will race to on my down time.
Wind is either a nuisance or a welcomed addition while you are on set. During my blog photoshoots, there is only me and the photographer. We do not have help setting up the shot, and it is all organic. The wind was a bit strong, but it captured the raw beauty of this place.
