Modern Monday

30 Apr

After my typical peruse of Architectural Digest online, I always find some inspiring spaces.  Recently, they’ve featured interesting restaurants and other modern kinds.  There’s something so exciting about the next cutting edge of an industry and I love the architecture of things.  I think I pick this up from my father who would always have Architectural Digest laying around the house.  I always loved the photos in these magazines.  All photos in this post are directly from the Architectural Digest link above.  It would be a dream to learn how to shoot some of these incredible photos, maybe I’ll put it on my bucket list 🙂

Mexico City – Tori Tori

Paris – Sur Mesure

Hong Kong – Ozone

Brooklyn – Isa

There are so many great aspects of architecture that I just am awe-struck by on this site.  I always gravitate towards the 10 greatest spans post on their site as well.  Here are some of my favorites.

Big Sur, CA

Fayetteville, VA

(near) Boulder City, NV

I could post pictures from this site all day.  It’s really amazing the things that can be created with a talented eye for design.  I hope everyone had a great weekend!

Lovely Litter!

While watching one of my absolute favorite shows, Shark Tank (thanks to my dad and Vicki for showing me this awesome show), I fell in love with one of the contestants products and the creators/designers are from San Francisco!!  I had to blog about the amazing-ness of these women.  They create unique body jewelry made from scrap chain pieces and the company is called Litter.  (All images below are from their website)

They are so creative and make some of the most unique pieces I’ve ever seen.  I’m so proud to say that such awesome designers are from right here in San Francisco!

Here are some of my favorite pieces from their collections:

So elegant and beautiful.

Also, I’m trying to win some of their AMAZING jewelry and need your help.  I’ve posted a photo on their Facebook page with an outfit and the piece I want to wear to Coachella.  If it gets enough ‘likes’ they will send some of their amazing pieces my way!  Can you help me get likes?  Thank you so much and definitely check out their AMAZING jewelry!  You can also become my friend on facebook as well : )  I haven’t had time to add the widgets yet to my home page but I’ll try to do so soon.  Have a great day!

This place brought me back to Europe

28 Mar

I’d always seen pictures of the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco but had never actually been.  While I was out exploring with my friend over the weekend, we ended up right near the Palace of Fine Arts so I snapped some photos.  I’m sure many of you have been here before but if you haven’t it’s such a beautiful place to see.  The tall columns reminded me so much of Europe and the exquisite buildings that still stand.

The extremely large columns.

It’s this large, outdoor standing area.  It’s beautiful.

Gigantic.

I love the reflection on the water.

The inside of the roof of the main dome.

You know how I love curved arches.

There were tons of people cruising around this area and lots of photographers shooting engagement photos and other shoots.  There was also a group of break dancers performing right in the middle of the main dome which was so cool to see.  I was trying to snap some photos of it but by the time we got close enough they decided to leave.  I’d definitely recommend checking it out on a nice day!
