paulette in hayes valley

    paulette

    I get a lot of emails asking me about the best places to find macarons in the Bay Area but I never knew how to answer since I'd only tried the ones that BF buys from Masse's in North Berkeley. A friend and I ventured out to Hayes Valley in San Francisco the other day and the had the opportunity to try these colorful little delights at Paulette! They definitely lived up to the hype and were as delicious as they looked. I'd strongly recommend ordering online if you've always wanted to try them and don't have any in your area.

    macarons!

i'm actually not pigeon-toed by the way

    01-30-1001-30-10
    vintage slip (clothes contact in the mission), vintage duffle coat, vintage oxfords

    Am I the only person who feels self-conscious about being photographed by another person? I don't think I mentioned this before but I finally bought a remote (along with the aforementioned lens) which I thought would facilitate this whole outfit photo process. Unfortunately that involves limiting myself to areas in and outside of my apartment where I can lug around a tripod without being seen by so many people. Okay, I honestly haven't had the time to try it yet but for the most part, due to my inability to focus well enough with self-timer, I've had to ask my friends to take my photos for me. Half of the time they come out but the other half they're just not good enough but I'm afraid to ask for more. I'll take what I can get anyway.

    Even now, however, I can't keep a straight expression when someone else is taking my photo, hence the not-so-fierce goofy expressions that naturally grace my face on a daily basis. You see that second photo on the right? I'd call that a more accurate representation of what the people around me see everyday (rat's nest hair included). What else is there to say? I bought this slip from Clothes Contact in the Mission and layered it over another slip and a crinoline from Anthropologie for a little extra bounce. This remind me of that Rodarte x Target that everyone has, except I wasn't really in love with the original... I don't really know why but I wasn't very motivated to buy anything. I'm really obsessed with mustard at the moment and can't get enough! I love the details at the top, I wish I'd taken a photo without the coat. Today was such a nice day, too.

    eating

    Yogurtland and BF's new hair. Have you guys been to Yogurtland? In my opinion it's a million times better than ripoffs like Pinkberry. It's way better to be able to choose everything that goes in your cup! I'm not too into mixing flavors so I always stick to my classic plain tart, yogurt chips, mango, and mochi combination. Oh, and my new lens came in! Merry Christmas, haha. Thanks for all of the comment in my last post, I'm glad to be back!

thank you everyone

    heart

    I don't think I'd realized how much my readers meant to me until today. On a day when everything that could go wrong happened I found comfort in the strangest of places: the blogosphere. I'm not going to lie, I'd always pictured myself as different from your average fashion blogger: I'd never planned on gaining such a significant number of readers nor did I go out of my way to attain it. It just kind of happened somehow and to be completely honest it really freaked me out for a while since it happened so fast (I forget I didn't actually start posting here until nine months ago.

    I'm still in the process of growing up: I'm not as obsessive compulsive as I used to be and I've grown a lot as a person but old habits are really difficult to shake off when they're so ingrained in your every day being. I'm the type of person who will recopy notes when I make minor mistakes such as writing on the wrong line or incorrectly spacing things, I even write most of my notes on graph paper for optimal control. And don't even get me started on this blog... you have no idea how many unpublished posts I have sitting on my Blogger dashboard at the moment. Somehow, however, it's starting to wear off. Maybe I am ready to post "just anything" now no matter how mundane it may be. Wasn't I the one who called it a "lifestyle" blog? I can easily say I was totally full of shit (hah) since I obviously backed out but hey, I can get a second chance, right?

    You see, I've come to realize that I really have been taking my readers for granted this entire time. As someone who is prone to the almost daily battles with self-doubt, I let my fears get the best of me and found it hard to believe that anyone could like me enough to take an interest in this little hobby of mine, whether it's my style or writing content. Taking a break from blogging really put things into perspective: it's not all about the number of readers you get but rather who's actually willing to stick with you no matter what choices you make concerning your blog. Why should I get freaked out about so many people looking at this when there's a select few who really geniunely care? Today, after a particularly difficult day where nothing seemed to work out, I received so many encouraging comments and emails that reading them actually caused me to tear up a little. I can't thank you guys enough for putting up with me, let's try this again, okay?

    (ps. I didn't mean to look like such a downer in the photo, it was 7:30am and I couldn't help it, haha.)

Egle Tvirbutaite (Elite NY)


    Talking to my friend Egle reminded me of how non-glamorous the travel schedule of a model can sometimes be. After this photo was shot, she was flying that day to Milan, then booked 2 days later to fly to Tokyo. It's almost like you never really know where in the world you will find yourself until the very last minute in time. As a lifestyle, I can see how this could be challenging.

written on the side of a lotion bottle..

    Photobucket

    ..The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate. A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step. Do not worry about the future for it has not yet come. Live each day in the present and make it beautiful. Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you've imagined.

    The purpose of life, after all, is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experiences. Celebrate the happiness that friends are always giving, make every day a holiday and celebrate just living. We are cups, constantly and quietly being filled. The trick is, knowing how to tip ourselves over and let the beautiful stuff out.
