Hello, friends! I've been in NYC for the past week and even though I am sad to not be in one of the greatest cities in the world, I am happy to be back in my own city, especially since that means that I get to show off yet another amazing Veronica Beard piece. I know I've gushed about my great love for Veronica Beard many times on my blog, but it's because I truly love this company. With the many designers and companies I've had the pleasure of working with over the years, Veronica Beard has been one of my favorites. Not only are their pieces INCREDIBLE but the whole company is like one big family. When I was in New York, my Veronica Beard contact who is the Associate Director of Digital Content & Social Media, Alex, reached out and wanted to get together so that we could finally meet in person. I was touched. Usually people who work for famous designers don't reach out let alone follow my content closely to even recognize when I visit their cities. However, Alex was so kind and genuinely wanted to to hang out with me and my sister! She met us at the cutest coffee shop and we all just talked for an hour. Alex was so kind and easy to talk to. She made the entire experience so incredible and I fell in love with brand even more after meeting her!
When Glossier announced that they were going to be hosting a limited time pop-up right here in my beloved city of San Francisco, I just about lost my mind...and so did the rest of SF. As you all know, Glossier is my makeup go to. I've literally switched out all of my makeup to Glossier products and my skin has never been better and my makeup confidence is through the roof. I have never been one to wear a ton of makeup and there's nothing I hate more than when my skin looks like it's slathered in a ton of it. Since I am definitely more about the more natural makeup look, it seemed like a match made in heaven once I started using Glossier products. I just love their "skin first, make up second" motto because that's truly how I approach my beauty routine, especially now that I'm in my 30's. Instead of covering up myself, I just enhance my features! I mean, don't get me wrong. Glossier's stretch concealer is a life saver for covering up unwanted pimples and late night/early morning sleepiness, but I love that their products never make me feel like I'm covered in makeup.
I'm sure seeing another Ganni dress on WFB does not surprise you one bit since you how how obsessed I am with this designer. I honestly cannot get enough! My closet is rapidly filling up with multiple pieces from Ganni's spring line and I'm not one bit mad about it. When I first saw this dress, I knew it would eventually make it's way into my wardrobe because A.) It's Ganni so it's made impeccably well and B.) I am always down for a moody floral print that stands out from the rest of the brighter and lighter aesthetics you usually see in the spring time. So, when my friend's at Le Point told me that they had this dress in stock, I rushed over to buy it as soon as I could. I was a little concerned with how it would fit because it's SO much dress but Ganni tends to make pieces that fit perfectly so when I put it on, I knew it was coming home with me.
It's not every weekend that you get to have an epic overnight with some of my amazing blogger friends at The Palace Hotel. A few weeks ago, Sarah of Sassy Red Lipstick organized our entire stay with The Palace Hotel team and it was incredible. Before I begin to gush about our stay, let me tell you that The Palace Hotel is one of my favorite hotels in San Francisco. It's history speaks for itself (built in the late 1800's) and as San Francisco becomes more and more modernized, classic places like The Palace Hotel hold a very special place in my heart because they are becoming more and more rare. Also, spending time with some truly beautiful humans (hey Sarah, Veronica, Camilla, LaTisha, and Shannon!) was pretty damn special, too.
Veronica Beard continues to be one of my favorite designers to work with. Every season, Veronica Beard makes me covet their entire collection. From the on point seasonal editions to the dickey and dickey jacket selection to their incredible prints, Veronica Beard truly inspires me as an influencer. After meeting the two Veronica Beard sisters-in-law last summer at a Nordstrom event, I was blown away by not only how humble these two power house designers are but how inspirational it felt to be around them. You could just tell how REAL women inspire them to continue creating and I am proud to be one of those women who can't shut up about how much I adore their voice and their designs.
