Food Friday: Mason Pacific

Mason Pacific 1358 Mason Street

Mason Pacific, a quaint bistro located on the corner of Mason and Pacific, is unassuming to the eye, but filled with delicious bites and an extraordinary collection of wine. Once inside, your eye can't help but take you to the beautiful large glass windows, as classic San Francisco cable cars roll by. Chef Max Mickinnon crafted the menu, while sommeliers Dustin Wilson and Eric Railsback have curated the wine list. Mason Pacific recently reopened and I was thrilled to experience the restaurants brand-spanking-new dinner menu.

Beauty Bites: #zeninthebu with derma e

Ah, summer, you sweet, sweet thing. To say it's been a chill summer would be somewhat of a stretch. I've been putting in several hours at the office and all of my vacation time has been saved up for the last quarter of the year. Luckily for me, I was able to skip town for a few days to join derma e for their #zeninthebu Malibu escape. If you know me, then you know I love the sun - combine that with hours of yoga, beach time, poolside tanning, swimming, delicious (and healthy!) eats, massages and flower crowns, and you've got yourself a very, very happy girl.

Food Friday: Durant and Booth

Durant and Booth 7856 St. Helena Highway, Durant House, Oakville, CA 94562

I've been fortunate enough to make several trips to wine country this year. But, in complete honesty, I've never been much of a wine-o. That is - until this year. I'm far, far, far from being a wine connoisseur, despite how many wine tastings I've been to. Though, I'd like to think the more tastings I take part in, the closer I get to figuring out what I like in a fine wine. My last wine tasting this summer season was at Durant and Booth, a new wine house located in Oakville in Napa Valley. Ever since my visit at the end of July, I have been dreaming about my next visit. After the jump, you'll see why.

Stacker Style: Outside Lands 2016 - Day 3

We made it! The final day of Outside Lands and what do you know... the sun came out to play! Which couldn't have worked out better because I saved this pretty set for last in hopes that it'd be warm enough to wear. Luckily for me, it was. You know from posts past that I love me a good maxi. What do I love more than a good maxi? A good maxi set. Tobi, you sure came through for your girl.

Stacker Style: Outside Lands 2016 - Day 2

Day two was colder than the first, which surprisingly enough, wasn't something I prepared for. Yeah, yeah - I went on and on about how prepared I was for day one, but couldn't get it together for day two? Well, let me just tell you that everyone I was with was equally as surprised by how much colder it was on Saturday. Thanks a lot, weather app! But, in all seriousness, I didn't do too bad. On day two, I came back in black. At one point I looked like I was from The Craft - I wore this beautiful matte brown lippie that actually made me look super goth, so I had to pull a switcheroo right before stepping out the door to a deeper tone. All in all? I think I nailed it... (come on, I had to!).

Stacker Style: Outside Lands 2016 - Day 1

There's no place that makes me happier than a festival - the music, the food, the good vibes - it's all bliss. Outside Lands is my second festival of 2016 (Coachella being my first of the year), and I still have two more to go (Austin City Limits at the end of next month and Treasure Island in October)! In fact, I think this year marks my sixth year in a row of OSL-ing (check out some of my past OSL years, here). So, yeah, I guess you can say I know a thing or two about that festival life. One of the best things about festivals is the creativity associated with what to wear - I, myself, am much more partial to the warmer festivals, because it seems sort of wrong having to lug around a parka, scarf, beanie, and more, right? Well, OSL is one of the festivals where the cold is just a given (thanks, Karl). Luckily for me, this year Tobi had my back.
