A visit to the San Diego Zoo

The San Diego Zoo is probably (definitely?) the most popular tourist destination in San Diego, so as new residents of America’s Finest City: we had to check it out! It’s located in the heart of Balboa Park: we live a short walk from the northeast corner of the park, so we decided to ride our […]

A few early faves from life in San Diego

Although we’ve been spending a lot of time, mental energy and money getting settled into our new apartment (currently taking recommendations on affordable sources for extra-large prints, throw pillows and pretty planters), we’ve still been trying to get out and explore a bit more of America’s finest city.

A weekend in San Diego

I wasn’t really expecting to fall in love with San Diego.

Laguna Beach: on video!

I’m back in New York City after such a fun weekend in Southern California, feeling so rejuvenated for the week and winter ahead. It started off on an epic note: when my best friend picked me up at LAX, she surprised me with VIP Kanye West tickets (she’s kind of a big deal). We went […]

A weekend in Sacramento

For the past three years that I’ve been living in New York City, I’ve gone home to Sacramento every September. It’s my favorite time of year to visit: not only are flight tickets so much cheaper than around the holidays or in summer, but it’s also perfect weather to read paperbacks by the pool and go […]
