Put a flower in your hair...
I was in lovely San Francisco all last week for work. I definitely got to see many different parts of the city thanks to my local friends and coworkers who gave me rides everywhere!
The first night I was there, I poked around downtown Burlingame - my home base for the week. I found this great shop with unique (but affordable) clothing called Therapy. They have several locations, so you should check them out if you're in Cali.
The next night, I went to a Giants game. I made it a point to ride The Guzzler (a Coca-Cola slide usually reserved for children). It was totally worth it! They also had a Fist Pump Cam that I thought was pretty genius. Everyone got really into it! Please notice the brilliant graphic...
I had the wonderful chance to hang out in beautiful Sausalito! We had the most delicious meal at Fish, a seafood restaurant right on the water dedicated to serving sustainable fish. The crab roll was absolutely splendid. It melted in my mouth... like butta'.
After spending the afternoon in Sausalito, I spent my evening in the Marina District. There was some great shopping - including a whole Benefit store. A WHOLE STORE of the stuff!! If you know me, you know my love for Benetint (see here and here). I stopped in and fell in love with their new lipstick shade for Fall called No Competition. It's a nice berry color, but not toooo dark that it scares me.
Mamacita. It was wonderful! I had the fish tacos (I couldn't get enough seafood on this trip), and my friend raved about her carne asada tacos. Here's a cute pic her husband took of us outside the restaurant (notice all the shopping bags I'm holding. Oopsies!).
All in all, it was a fun trip! It reminded me how much I love true urban life. Can't wait for the next time I'm back in this blissfully foggy metropolis - hopefully, I can bring the hubby along (he was super jealous of all the amazing asian food and seafood I was having). There's just so much more to do and see! Alcatraz, anyone?!
