I am spending Thanksgiving with my sister and her family in San Fran this year. The last time I was in San Fran was summer after freshmen year of college!We have lots on tap for turkey day including abalone diving and dinner in an airplane hanger. The rest of the weekend will be devoted to exploring this city, shopping and football! War Damn Eagle! Saturday night I am going to my first show at the famous Bill Graham to see Pretty Lights with my roommate and some college friends. Lots of pictures to come next week!
I hope you have a happy and fun thanksgiving! So many things to be thankful for and lots to reflect on this time of year. Cheers to all those who can’t be with us but are up in heaven smiling down on us.
I saw this photo floating around on Pinterest a few years ago. I always thought the vest in the image was old school Patagonia. Recently, I discovered the company behind this awesome vest, Penfield. Penfield, founded in 1975 is modeled after classic “New England Style”. Company founder Harvey Gross manufactured his own textiles in Massachusetts with a focus on down insulated outerwear. The brand is well known in the outwear industry both for its style and quality. Penfield also sells great men’s jackets and flannel shirts. You can purchase these jackets and more online at ASOS, Revolve, and Shopbop. Happy Shopping!
Thanksgiving is only a few days away! My family does a very simple and traditional Thanksgiving meal. Just turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing and cranberry sauce. I love to pile them all on in one big bite, it is a delicious combination.
– Headed to a friends for Thanksgiving here are some great hostess gift ideas.
– If you’re in need of last-minute cookware, serveware or holiday decor check out West Elm and World Market, they have a great selection at reasonable prices, plus they are always running discounts like 10% of with email sign up!
Thanksgiving also means SHOPPING – check in on Thursday for all the best black friday deals that start early. Friday I will have all the best black Friday Deals and don’t forget about cyber monday! Happy Monday!
This week has seemed extra long but also extra productive, which is great! We finally got a microwave this week – yay popcorn!! Moving on up in the world! This weekend is going to be heavy on the food with 2 Friendsgivings and I am in charge of veggies! I’m thinking roasted brussels sprouts with bacon or these marinated mushrooms.

I discovered Margaret Elizabeth jewelry via pinterest a few weeks ago. Her jewelry is stunning. I love all of the opal pieces, anything blue… yes please! But the opal is truly stunning. Meg Galligan, the designer behind this beautiful line, left her job at Google to pursue her dreams of jewelry design. I’m very jealous she got to work at Google, but happy she left so she could create this beautiful jewelry. I think the lamp topper would make for a great house warming gift too!
