Fashion Friday: Black Mini Crossbody Wishlist

I love handbags but buy them infrequently. I like high quality pieces that make my life easier and prettier. Recently, I've found myself wishing I had a small elegant crossbody bag to wear to dinners and events. Something that will hold my necessities, look nice, and stay out of the way (crossbody or over the shoulder). I've decided it should be black since that's my go to for dressing up. And I prefer gold to silver metal, hands-down. Some of these are pretty extravagant, but my birthday is in a few weeks, so I'm in a happy wishlist dreamland!

Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!

I Left my Foodie Heart in San Francisco

San Francisco Foodie | orange zest morning bun at tartine in the Mission | Luci's Morsels
After living in Los Angeles for almost 11 months, we finally made it back to San Francisco for a vacation. My guy had to work in the city Thursday and Friday, so I tagged along and we made it a weekend trip. And if not taking too many photos is the sign of a good time spent with wonderful people, then you can understand why my photos aren't numerous! Nevertheless, some highlights are definitely in order!

Above is the orange zest morning bun from Tartine and their iced coffee. I took one of my best friends from my days at Berkeley here for her first time. They have tons of other pastries, cakes, and morsels to choose from, but I can't resist this morning bun - as in, I'm kind of speechless about it. So please, for your sake, make your way to Tartine when you're in the city. There is often a line, but it's worth the wait. And a little insider trick? If you are there with one or more friends, have one person head inside to the coffee bar to buy coffees. They are cash only (just at the coffee bar), but then you can sip on something delicious while you wait in line for the morsels!
