After 6 years away Sam and I finally made our way up to San Francisco. On our first day we decided to visit our old haunts. We visited our favorite restaurants like Cafe de la Presse, our old apartments, and walked through our old neighborhoods. So much has changed and yet so much has stayed exactly the same.  I always say I left my heart in San Francisco. The two years we spent living in the city will always be some of my favorite memories. I hope to one day find my way back to this beautiful, vibrant city.

A spring inspired outfit for a day of exploring Carmel. As I mentioned a few posts ago, I’m loving wide leg trousers at the moment. I’ve been wearing this particular pair almost exclusively for the last two weeks. They pair well with almost everything and work for a variety of occasions. I’ve worn them for lunch by the beach, date night with Sam, and work events. They proven to be a worth while investment piece.

Sunday brunch is my favorite weekend tradition. Whether we’re at home or traveling, Sam and I take our Sunday Funday very seriously. My favorite brunch indulgence is lemon ricotta pancakes paired with a healthy fruit smoothie. Sam loves breakfast tacos and waffles.  Together we end up with way too much food and have to invite friends to join in on our feast. Below I’ve linked a few of my favorite recipes to make for brunch.

Acai Berry Smoothies 

Ricotta Pancakes – I add lemon zest and blueberries to this recipe.

Breakfast Tacos

Homemade Waffles – The perfect recipe to use as a  jumping off point.

Hope everyone has a fantastic Sunday!

Sharing a few of my current skin care favorites. These 4 products are always with me when I travel to help keep my skin clean and moisturized.

  1. GlamGlow – This mask is my favorite for when I feel a breakout is coming on. I use it at night and by the next morning any evidence of clogged pores is gone.

2.  La Mer The Concentrate – An absolute must when I travel.

3. La Mer Revitalizing Hydrating Serum – This is a really great  serum when I’ve been in the sun all day and need extra hydration.

4. La Mer Eye Concentrate – I don’t leave home without at least 3 under eye creams in my makeup bag. This one is my current favorite.

Here is a little roundup of photos of a few of our favorite places we visited in the Tulum. I highly suggest Azulik as a hotel worth splurging on even for just one night. It is one of the most stunning hotels I’ve ever had the pleasure of visiting. Our room was right on top of the cliff with an unobstructed view of the crystal clear Caribbean. The rooms are all free of wifi and lit by candlelight. It also has a new restaurant called Kin Toh.  It has Mexican and Mayan inspired cuisine, an open air atmosphere and breathtaking view of the jungle below. We also stayed at Hotel Tiki Tiki, a stylish boutique hotel located about 10 minutes from the strip. It’s nice to be a little removed from the scene sometimes and the sleek 50’s art deco hotel is the perfect place to unwind after a long day in the sun. A few of the other places in Tulum we loved were Papaya Playa for the tacos, beachfront party, and the full moon party. Gitano is a great choice for a more elevated dinner in Tulum. Antojitos La Chiapaneca was our favorite spot for late night tacos. Pro tip : try the salsa first before dumping it all over your tacos. Some are next level spicy. There are also a ton of cute clothing shops on the Tulum Beach strip. I particularly enjoyed a lovely concept shop from the designer Miguelina who has a beautiful collection of locally made pieces perfect for wandering around Tulum. Also a must is Gran Cenote, it is a limestone cave with fresh water and it is absolutely beautiful. Make sure to go early as it can get crowded.
