I traveled to India and Singapore last fall. Before I left, I decided to attempt street photography for the first time. I wanted to capture images of how women and girls, halfway around the world, lived their lives. Here are some of those photos.
I’m really loving the architecture here in Boston. I have never seen anything like it in California. The old style buildings are really beautiful and instantly transport you back to an earlier time.
The forecast for this weekend was rain, rain, and more rain. But this time I didn’t do what I usually do when it rains.
Instead I went to San Francisco, enjoyed a Thai lunch, and spent the rest of the rainy afternoon in a cozy wine bar. If you had to be out and about in the rain, that was the place to do be. I was obsessed with the sheep-shaped artwork on the walls. So cute, right? I also saw The Hunger Games. I had been waiting for the movie for what seems like the longest time and I plan to share my thoughts in a separate post!
So yes, it was a great weekend despite the weather not cooperating. How was your weekend?
I can’t believe that was my life a mere few days ago. Now I’m back home in cloudy, rainy weather. I’ll be looking through my vacation pictures this weekend, as it pours, so that I can look forward to days of wearing dresses, flip flops, and soaking in the sun again. I hope it comes soon!
How was your week? Hope you all have a lovely weekend!
A breath of fresh air after been cooped up inside for far too long.
And when that air happens to be San Francisco and 70 degrees…well, that’s just the icing on the cake.

What’s been making you happy lately?
I love cities. I do enjoy nature, but at heart I am a total city girl. I love the skyscrapers, the bustling energy, the massive amounts of people, and of course all the amazing things to do/eat. I have to say that San Francisco is one of my favorite cities. I may be a bit partial considering I’m from the Bay Area, but I’ve been to NYC, London, Mumbai..I enjoyed them all, but felt that they were too busy.
I know that you are thinking – aren’t cities supposed to be too busy? Maybe they are. But I love San Francisco for its mix of busyness, yet still maintaining that casual, relaxed vibe about the Bay Area that I love so much.

What is your favorite city? Why do you like it so much?
The holidays are now officially over and starting today, it’s back to reality. I spent part of the break in the Bay Area and part of it in LA.
Here are some pictures of the past few days:
Edible holiday decorations in the Fairmont Hotel
My new Kate Spade iPhone case that I wanted
Watching my ice cream being made in front of my eyes at Smitten

Currently on my nails: Essie’s Bangle Jangle
My winter attire in LA: tights, a dress, and sandals. Can’t beat 80 degrees in December/January!
How did you spend your holidays?
Here’s hoping that 2012 is an amazing year for us all!
