Part 3 San Francisco

Part 3 San Francisco

Final day! Sorry for such a long wait, I have been a busy busy bee.

We started our day going to Home, a nice little coffee shop. For my non-coffee lovers, the coffee did not really resemble coffee to me it was sooo sweet, so it is worth a try. They do not have a hardy breakfast, but they have toast, but not normal toast… extraordinary toast! I do not think I can describe it properly, so I will include a picture and a link to the menu below, you have to check it out. They also have cute little signs everywhere that say no laptops, it is my favorite coffee shop I have been to so far.

Finally, the iconic Golden Gate Bridge. This was so exhilarating while also being nerve wracking. I am slightly afraid of heights, I found myself attempting to stay closer to the cars than the edge. This got me thinking and even inspired me to research the issues about the Golden Gate Bridge suicide rate. I was more than thrilled to hear that the city of San Francisco is currently working on installing a net to catch people attempting to end their life on this terrifyingly powerful bridge. There is still more progress to go, and I would love to hear your guys opinions on how we as people can help more with this prevention if you have any ideas for me.

We also went to this cool little park known as Billy Goat Hill. It had a beautiful view, one of the prettiest I have seen, but it was super cold and windy, so we could not stay too long. I want to go back there one day and have a nice little picnic.

To continue the park trend, we went to Mission Dolores park which was super fun for people watching and a great way to end the weekend getaway. After that it was sadly time to head home. I am still sad to be home honestly. I cannot wait to go back to San Francisco. Any tips for me and my next trip? Let me know!

Okay! Back again with San Francisco. If you have not read part 1, here is the link, San Francisco Part 1. I am still daydreaming about the weekend we had honestly. On Saturday of our weekend trip, we started the day off by going to my favorite place in San Francisco, the tile steps! I think I love it here so much because of the artistry behind the steps, and the beauty that they hold. Anyone who knows me knows that I am a sucker for art. I am in love with the colors, and the view from the top is like nothing else I have you to see in San Francisco. Also, how cool is it that it is just smack dab in the middle of a neighborhood! Could you imagine living a short walk from such a unique and breathtaking attraction? For being a well-known place, I was surprised that it was not crowded at all, and we had the stairs to ourselves for a while. If, and when I go back, I want to just take a good book up to the top of the stairs and hang with a sandwich. Soaking in the surrounding and basking in the sun on these steps would be a dream come true right now with the weather I have had the last two weeks.

After that we took a stroll down to a local, phenomenal breakfast place called Zazies! It was the best breakfast I have had since Australia and the best eggs benedict I have ever had. It is a cute but small place and super busy, so you have to be willing to wait (I promise it is worth it). Our table also shared a Carmel French Toast which was soooo sweet I could only have a couple bites but… Wow.

This was our big walking day, after breakfast we had to walk off all that food, so we went to Haight Street. This is my best friend Kayleigh’s favorite place. It is so hippie and fun I felt like I was stepping into another era. There is a lot of shopping, from vintage shops, to modern boutiques, and a lot of intriguing people. Although there are some wackos running around, I never felt unsafe and honestly found their presence kind of entertaining.

Our final stop before dinner was Ashbury. This is known for the Full House show with all the famous houses and park. This was a fulfillment of one of my childhood dream, like most my 20 something readers we grew up on this show, and my obsession surely has not faded with age. The park itself is beautiful as well to just stroll through on an overcast afternoon.

After all the pictures and walking we grabbed a coffee from The Mill, for my coffee drinkers, I am not a huge coffee girl unless it is loaded up with sugar but my friend Brena got a normal coffee but on nitro. I had a taste of it and it was soooo smooth it was something new to try and I liked it surprisingly. From there we went to another personal favorite… Sausalito.

Sausalito feels somewhat separate from the city, and honestly driving through it made me think I was driving through the hilly coasts of Southern Italy. We got dinner at The Trident, where we sat right on the water at sunset. I am hopelessly in love with Sausalito. The dinner was fantastic, I got a steak and I was having extreme nostalgia from Australia. There were just beautiful hints of those feelings as if I were back in Australia. This place is to die for. It was the perfect close to the night!

On to… Sunday! My final day in San Francisco!

Hello my lovelies!

I am going to do a series on my recent trip to San Francisco, since we just did so many fun things! I always kind of like to space stuff out on the blog so anyone that is interested in one aspect of my trips can maybe get a more in-depth look at specific pieces instead of a big picture kind of post! So, keep an eye out for my other posts on San Francisco coming later this month!

Lucky me, I do not have school on Fridays so three of my close friends and I took off early Friday morning for this trip, so we would have an extra day to explore. We stayed at the Clift Hotel. If you are in need of hotel recommendations this is definitely a great place to stay if you want to be close to everything and in the heart of the city. The Clift is a short walk from Union Square, where all the shopping is, and it is also right around the corner from the famous San Francisco trolley. The trolley was a must do for me just because of the history behind it, and honestly, I am so glad I did ride it because it was so fun and enabled me to get a good look at the city! We took the trolley down to The Warf. This was an interesting environment on the water with tons of restaurants and random shops. There was even a magic shop at Pier 39! Pier 39 is the most populated portion of The Warf and you can see my favorite… Alcatraz from there. This was a life long dream of mine to see the infamous prison. The whole area reminded me a little bit of a carnival or SeaWorld, who knows why but those were the vibes I was collecting. We spent the afternoon at The Warf, got some lunch, and shopped around before making our way down to Ghirardelli (yes, the chocolate) Square. This was a nice day of sight seeing and shopping around. Although the majority of the day was spent in this area we also took a journey over to Lombard Street after visiting the Famous Buena Vista cafe!

Lombard Street was beautiful, I love the curvy road, even if driving down them would make me nauseous, and for February everything was so green and in full bloom. There was the prettiest tree with little purple lilacs all over it. I honestly loved walking the streets of San Francisco, even though they are basically giant mountains!! One suggestion I have is to bring good walking shoes you 100% will need them but the walking is a good workout, and a killer workout (my legs are dead).

For dinner we went to this great place called El Techo. It is kind of family style, or at least my group made it that way. We got a couple of different courses form the menu and shared them all. The Carne Asada tacos were absolutely delicious and my personal favorite. Next door is another restaurant called Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, we did not eat there so I cannot really give you an opinion on it, but it looked super unique and I implore you all to eat there if you are in town and let me know how it is, because I really want to go my next time in town (there will be a next time). They have a movie playing during your nice dinner too which in my mind is a winning idea.

That is pretty much how our first night in the big city went! I will be writing more on this trip and let me know if you have any questions for me and or recommendations for my next trip!

Weedon Island

Weedon Island

My life has been infused with tons of adventure and nature from living so close to the Tampa Bay. For as long as I can remember, my parents would take my younger brother and I out to the Weedon Island Preserve that has been around for thousands of years, in order to experience aquatic and onshore ecosystems. Many people walk the trails, boardwalks, and fishing pier to learn more about this fascinating preserve. It never ceased to amaze me how the city of Tampa would protect the wide range of diverse animals and natural resources located in this area. As a family we would take jet skis out along the banks of the island or paddle board through them to experience close encounters with numerous wild life.

Several years have gone by and I still constantly come to this place spending great weekends with friends that love adventure as much as me. The fishing is incredible throughout the protected mangroves. There is an abundance of fish, the most popular ones in this area tend to be Snook, Red, and Trout. It is so peaceful outdoors on the water, with the Florida sun giving off a strong heat. My Ranch Bucket gives me the perfect shade whenever I am on the boat or at the beach with my friends. Not only does it look great, but the fit feels perfect especially with any type of movement. The only problem was that all my guy friends were stealing it from me saying how good they looked in it…told them to get their own!

That same day we caught about six Trout and four nice sized Snooks. Both fish are great to eat but we decided to let them go back to their aquatic ecosystems to live another day (I feel guilty sometimes because I love animals so much). The sport of fishing has really become a hobby of mine, because of the exhilarating game that is combined with patience and fight on the water. Weedon Island Preserve gives this feeling to those who love to fish, which is why the location gives off a strong attraction. I wish everyone could see this beautiful environment to remind them the damages of air and water pollution.

I cannot wait to come back during my spring break and spend all my time on the water. Now I am back at University of Central Florida located in Orlando, so it is time for me to explore this busy city. So keep up to date with me!

New year, same world so take care of it!

About Our Product

About Our Product

Fall brings my favorite type of hat weather, especially wearing our Belize Orange Trucker and the South Water Key Brown Hemp Snapback. Even though these hats are undeniably cute and work well with all of my fall attire, there are many more reasons I am a big advocate for our hats. I wanted to share a little more about our hats since I am finding many of you who keep up with me and the blog have a lot of questions and do not know nearly enough about our brand. For starters our hats are all organic. We re-purpose our hats out of all recycled material. I am a huge supporter of all things environmental friendly and the mission to save our planet, and our hats really embody this. One of my biggest things when I look into new products for myself is how it effects our environment and specifically the effect it has on animals. The next great thing about our hats is the personality the company brings to it. The photography on the hats is taken by our brands creator and it really adds a special flair to the hats. Lastly, and I think this one is key for you, our customer, they can be personalized! If you ever want something specific out of a hat, send me a personal message and we will work with you to create exactly what you want and expect out of a hat!

Short and sweet for today, but wanted to field through some of the questions I have been receiving. If y’all have more inquiries please do not hesitate to comment below or message me privately!
