The Palace of Fine Arts located in the Marina District of San Francisco is definitely worth braving the wind for! Can you tell from these pictures how windy it was? Thank goodness for this Lim biker jacket which I’ve deemed my all-purpose. Totally did not plan to match the columns, by the way.

Third time up north this year and already planning a few more for the summer months.

My niece turned 1 year-old! How time flies! Isn’t she precious? My sister planned a Hello Kitty themed birthday party.  The color theme was of course pink and white.  There were plenty of finger foods, desserts, and games for the kids. So fun!

 

Linzer Cookies for Mother’s Day

I usually like to hand make something when it comes giving gifts.  This year for Mother’s Day, I baked some linzer cookies for my mom.  Linzer cookies are festive and they can work for a variety of occasions.  Sur La Table sells mini cookie cutters that you can use to mix and match shapes.  I made these into a “heart within a heart” shape that’s also very valentine’s day-like.  I used this recipe and basically had all the ingredients already.  The cookie turned out slightly crisp and crumbly.  I would suggest baking and assembling the day you plan to serve the cookies.

Turned the harness around from a suspender type accessory to more a necklace type accessory.  And here’s another way to wear this Spring must-have.

When I saw BCBG models strutted down the runway in a combination of harness, lace, and grunge back in September for the S/S13 collection, I knew I had to get my hands on the leather harness belt.  I first got one in white and have worn it with 5 different outfits already.  Then went back and got a black version.  It’s one of those effortless items that you’ll keep reaching for in your closet.
