Guide to San Francisco

San Francisco “City by the Bay” is one of the most eclectic cities in America. It has so much to offer that you will immediately fall in love it. There are so many great food spots, shopping center and places to just wind down and relax . Here are a list of things to see/do while in San Fran!!

Lombard Street - known as the Crooked Street is a must when in San Francisco. The street is surrounded by beautiful homes and always crowded with tourist taking pictures.

Union Square- Central for all shopping, hotels and theater districts. Perfect area to stay as everything is walking distance.

Places to Eat: There are endless options . Places I tried: Dotties, Honey Honey Cafe, Pakwan, Urban Tavern, Halal Guys

Fisherman’s Wharf, Pier 39 - This area covers numerous blocks surrounding the water with boat rides, sailing, ferry to Alcatraz, and amazing spots for food especially seafoods.

Places to Eat: Grotto, Bistro Boudin, Cioppinos,

Cable Car - Riding the cable car is an excellent way to tour the city. It stops at all major spots like Union Square, Market Street, Fishermans Wharf etc (there’s usually a long line to ride the cable car but totally worth the experience) Make sure to hang on tight while hanging off the cable cars.

Wine Tour Napa & Sonoma - Don’t forget to spend a day in the wineries exploring different types of wine from the local vineyards. There are a lot of tour guides available to cater to your needs (private tours, small group tours, big group tours) We did our tour through Green Dream Tours and had a great time.

Golden Gate Bridge - the iconic bridge that is seen in every move is definitely worth seeing. It was a bit foggy the day we were there so was not able to capture the whole bridge. The best place to take the picture is from Battery Spencer to get the iconic look but other places like Torpedo Wharf, Baker Beach and Fort Point are also good spots

Work Flow: Blazers All The Way

Blazers all the way

I have learned so much from being a wedding planner and launching my own business. One of the things I enjoy the most about my job is meeting couples with different backgrounds and learning about different culture and traditions. I love being able to bounce off creative ideas  with the couple and able to see their ideas come into life. As we are getting ready to kick off 2018 wedding season, I just wanted to say how grateful I am to all of my clients, family and friends for supporting me through this journey. Hope you enjoy this look!!!

Happy New Year Everyone. Hope everyone have an amazing 2018 filled with laughter, joy and happiness. Everyone needs a little sparkle for NYE and this outfit with the statement necklace is perfect.

Hope you enjoy this look

Casual White & Grey Look

 

Grey and white combination is one of my favorite color combination!  This was one of my looks from our Paris trip this summer. Even though it was summer, the weather was a little chilly in the mornings. Coming from Florida, anything below 70 degrees is considered cold. I absolutely love this ruffle top with this distressed jeans from Express.  You can always dress it up with some nice boots or be casual with some flats. #livelaughtravel Enjoy!!!
