Outfit Shots from San Francisco Travel Diary

I've been told that the weather in San Francisco is anything but commendable, windy, chilly, and very uncalifornia like. I have to say SF really outdid itself the extended weekend we visited because we experienced none of that. Pure sunshine and warm breezy weather for us :-)

I'm doing a seperate post just for outfits cause I had a lot of fun packing for this trip! As usual you'll see a lot of color and recently I've been lusting over prints. So lots of those! 

I love this moment!

Lemon on My Mind

Sadly all things sunny are starting to fade with the end of the summer, I have been obsessed with all things flavored lemon! Lemon bars, lemon ices, lemon fashion :-), lemon scents! It's a fresh twist especially for desserts that makes tasty treats not unbearably sweet! This obsession is definitely reminiscent of my temporary love with grapefruit . . .


Love love Lily!!

And lastly my take on the lemon color and flavor

Color, Color, Color

Homemade Lemon Bars mmmmm

Recipe for Lemon Bars
adapted from Rita May's Blog

3/4 C sugar
1/4 t salt
1 stick butter, soft
2 eggs
juice from 1/2 lemon (about 1T)
zest from 1/2 lemon (about 1t)

Travel Diaries: Scoping out San Francisco

Hope you enjoyed your Fourth of July! I did ;-)

A lot of the trips I go on are for vacationing or to spend time with family. Most recently, I just got back from San Francisco for a business trip. I have never been to San Francisco so aside from chauffeuring the husband to his meetings it was a sight seeing running around seeing the city type of trip. I love those kinds of trips but at the risk of sounding like a senior citizen,  man are they tiring. It's safe to say I fell asleep every  night the second my head hit the pillow.

We stayed at the Hilton, a beautiful hotel in the Financial District near the piers and Union Square. We did the major things like cross the Golden Gate Bridge (which is burnt orange), eyed Lombard the crookedest street (aside from Wall St. ;-) visited Alcatraz which I like to call Azkaban, took pictures of the sea lions at Pier 39, watched the Pride Parade, hugged a redwood tree in Muir Woods, and drank wine at a winery in Napa Valley. I was quite the busy bee :)

If you've visited San Francisco before what did you enjoy during your visit?

Outfit of the Moment Posts will follow with more details of my crazy outfits

Anthem of the trip

Some libations to start our trip off with :)

A much nicer boat than what Alcatraz prisoners probably rode in on

Despite the depressing ruins this island has a beautiful view! And some crazy ass wind!

the moment where you think your husband
is talking on the phone but actually snapping a pic

Pretty details of my shirt and necklaces which i call double decker necklacing

Outfit of the Moment: Coool Blue and (Vegan) Leather

I love leather. Vegan (faux), real, black, purple, for my feet, for my butt! It adds just the right edge to an outfit. Just be careful about using too much at once :) I have been lucky enough to find all of my leather pieces at my fave consignment shop. This purple leather skirt, the skirt in this post, and most recently a rad leather vest that you'll be seeing soon that makes me feel like popping a wheely.

How do you incorporate (vegan) leather into your wardrobe? Are you a lover or a hater?

Shirt and Tank: Target, Skirt: Thrifted, Shoes: Tahari
Shades: F21, Necklace: John Hardy, Lip Color: Maybelline Color Whisper Petal Rebel

The Prettiest Eggs You'll Evah See

Deviled eggs are popular in my house. 
         Really popular. Like fly off the table as soon as I set it down popular. 

They are a pretty standard dish so when I hosted a grad party for my mother I thought "let's serve it with a twist - a pretty twist." I'm a sucker for presentation and pretty food especially pretty food that tastes good so when I found this version on Cupcakes and Cashmere I was like der! 

For all you crunchies out there no worries these eggs are 
colored from beets not - gasp - artificial coloring :-)

Inspired by CupcakesandCashmere and Source Here

Heads up for this Recipe there is sugar in the pickling mixture if you don't want your eggs to have a slightly sweet taste ditch the sugar or make the eggs a little but spicer ;-)

3 cups water
1 cup distilled white vinegar
1 small beet, peeled and sliced
1 small shallot, sliced
1 teaspoon sugar
1 bay leaf
12 hard-boiled large eggs, peeled
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon grainy mustard
1 teaspoon Hot Sauce
Sweet Paprika, to taste (I used chives)

Bring water, vinegar, beet, shallot, sugar, bay leaf, and 1/2 teaspoon salt to a boil in a 2-quart saucepan, then simmer, covered, until beet is tender, about 20 minutes. Cool completely, uncovered. Put beet mixture in a container with eggs and marinate, chilled, gently stirring once or twice, for 2-6 hours.

Remove eggs from beet mixture and pat dry (discard beet mixture). Cut in half lengthwise and remove yolks. Mash yolks with mayonnaise, mustard, and Siracha sauce. Season with salt and pepper, then divide among egg whites and sprinkle with paprika.

Travel Diaries: NYC for Ta's 60th

For better or worse I feel like I'm on the road more than I am at home. I am so lucky I get to travel as much as I do but is it terrible of me to say that sometime all I really want to do is sleep in my king size bed, 1000 thread count sheets, and lush down comforter?

Back in May I went to visit my father in NYC to celebrate his 60th birthday. It was really special because most of my many family members traveled to New York for it! I love my Krazy Kamensky family!! 


Starting the weekend off right :)
