Bon Iver & St. Vincent - Roslyn

Ever since I moved into the city, I have been on a mission to revisit and explore every nook and cranny of it. Truth be told, the first two months I failed miserably at going out and taking advantage of my new surroundings. Now that October is right around the corner, I have trained myself to slowly spend more time out. Shockingly enough, my grandma-self has been seen around town on weeknights even. While it is still difficult for me to go out during the week and stay out past my 10pm bedtime, I've come to the conclusion that there is no point to live in a beautiful city, such as San Francisco, if I'm not going to be a true San Franciscan. This means: going out to grab a bite, enjoying a happy hour after work (even though all I want to do is jump into bed right after I get off), attending events and meeting great people, and revisiting all of the SF sites I haven't been to since I was a child. Luckily for me, I have awesome friends who don't mind spending time with me to do the aforementioned activities. This past Saturday, I spent the day with Alex N. We snapped photos at the Sutro Baths (along with the other 50 people who did the same), enjoyed afternoon lattes and sweets in the Filmore, and had a relaxing sushi dinner in the Mission. Interestingly enough, I actually spend a lot of time driving around the city for my job. But, I have to say it's much nicer when you can spend time driving around the city with a friend.

On a side note, I'm pretty excited about all the upcoming posts I have in store for ya, so definitely don't stray too far away this week. In the meantime, I'm going to figure out why the picture quality on blogger is awful. Might have to consider flickr or photobucket... hmmm...


  1. wow these pictures are gorgeous!! SF has so many great spots that i am just starting to discover as i am old. so many great eats in the Mission!!

    and i love your Toms!

  2. one of the reasons I don't have blogger is because I feel like the picture quality is always so grainy :(

    anyway, that is seriously an amazing backdrop to your pictures! San Francisco is a great city.

  3. Very nice look, Ms Stacker~

    Almost like a day off of sorts, right? :P Any case, it really suits you ^_^

  4. Such a cute outfit. I love your Toms!

  6. "Grandma-self"... uh, you sound like me! Haha. I too want to just sit my arse down on the couch after a long day of work. I'm trying to be better though, but it's so hard! So I can totally relate! What a great background/setting to shoot photos. Was it chilly that day? It looks a bit cold, but you still look great. :) So do you upload photos straight to Blogger? I use photobucket but was actually looking to change! Looked into Flickr but I couldn't figure out the code to paste. Let me know if you end up using a diff. photo upload service!
