You belong to the
loneliness of filling every need. 

I'm not a fool, I'm just lifeless too. The Weeknd and his music is haunting me. I am SO upset I was sleeping during his performance at Coachella. I was so exhausted, and I didn't know Abel and his music that well yet, so I made the wrong choice. So now every time I listen to his tracks, I think about how I was sleeping just a ear-shot away from his amazing show, and had every chance I needed to go. Above are some snapshots from my first week back at school, some boutiques around town and a new sweater dress I got. Eric isn't quite a fan of the look, but there's something so cozy and comforting about an oversized sweater and scarf, some apple cider and candles. I am really a sucker for autumn-- it truly is my favorite season-- and I can't help but decorate my house and go ham in planning festivities for the fall. I even had a back-to-school autumn tea party, with tons of cookies and treats for the girls. So far, my senior year at University has been a blast, and I have never felt closer to all my friends. I hope halloween weekend is also incredible!! There is always so little to do around town, so I'm crossing my finger something epic pops up! :) Song recommendation: "Belong to the World" The Weeknd. 

You belong to the 
temporary moments of a dream. 

Don't be shy, I got it. Outsidelands weekend was one for the books. Even though it was over a month ago, possibly even approaching two months ago, those three days resonate with me and my memory more than any other day this summer. So, instead of doing homework like I'm suppose to be right now, I'm writing about the few days off I had from work to explore the beautiful San Francisco Golden Gate park. Listening to talented acts like Glass Animals, Tame Impala, Mumford & Sons, Angus & Julia Stone, The Black Keys, and even a surprisingly good performance from Axwell & Ingrosso, I was delighted by the musical choices for the weekend. The food was incredibly good as well, and I snacked on treats such as porchini doughnuts, citrus poki, breaded chicken sandwiches, cupcakes, maple syrup waffles, and more. Okay-- I may have gone a little over the top with the food, but who can blame me with so many good choices? Not to forget, a wonderful comedy act from Ron Funches (whom I first watched on @Midnight), and a hilarious "Food Fight" gameshow-style event with Pete Holmes. Overall, it was an incredible weekend. Song Recommendation: "The Party and The After Party" The Weeknd.

I know that you're hiding,
I know there's a part of you that I just can not reach. 

You don't have to let me in. I started my new job at PTC downtown and I absolutely love it. It's a speciality store that carries brands like Lucky Brand, Free People, Michael Stars, Charlie Jade, Sanctuary, Splendid, Ella Moss, Mystree, Uno de 50, Dogeared, Alix & Ani, and more! Not to mention they have amazing denim from Paige, Goldsign, Mother, Citizens of Humanity, and a bunch of other great denim lines. When I say I am obsessed with the store, brands, people I work with and the whole vibe I can not even begin to encompass how grateful and excited I am to be working there. It is such a pleasure! The buyers, visual managers, team members and everyone are so kind, I love everyone, the customers, and atmosphere, it is so wonderful. The photos above are from the end of the year graduation party with my closest friends (definitely missing a key few!) as well as a lovely stop at Verve Coffee with Adriana below. As for the bottom two photos, those are of the lovely ring Eric got me for our 7 year anniversary. A "promise" ring of sorts, we still feel MUCH too young to get engaged, and it was such such a beautiful gesture. He saved up a lot for it, and worked so hard at finding the perfect one. He is such a gentleman, and so kindhearted. We never go super all-out on gifts (we do save to spend for each other on special occasions though, of course) but this was just stunning. He really went the extra mile and blew me away. While he knows he doesn't have to spend that much on me ever, knowing he did was a landmark statement for him. Our love will always transcend the silly pricetags on things, but I will not fail to notice how kind he was to go above and beyond this year as a special circumstance. It is something to be recognized and appreciated. Outsidelands is also just a few short weeks away, I am SOOOO EXCITED!!!!!! I can NOT WAIT. It's going to be such a blast :) On my playlist: "Hiding" Florence + The Machine, "Flip" Glass Animals "JDNT" Glass Animals, "It's Only" Odesza.
