Beautiful Edibles

There seems to be a lot of buzz about a very talented event planner based in NYC. Her name is Amy Atlas and she is creating absolutely gorgeous arrangements of desserts for events. Her work is typically mono-color, although she does work in multi-color themes as well. But the simplicity of her work is intriging.

Homesick

Sometimes Heroes Disappoint You

Anyone who knows me, knows I am a HUGE movie fan. It was my family's "thing" growing up and it is a habit that has stuck.

Ladies Who Launch

On a whim while on Facebook a few weeks ago I clicked on an ad for Ladies Who Launch - the name intrigued me. They were advertising an event that is right around the corner from my work at the San Francisco Design Center. An all-day event dedicated to women starting businesses, the resources available to them, and success stories. I thought that the event price was reasonable, so I decided to … [Read more...]

Reading like crazy…what's my stop again?

I have found myself reading voraciously since I started working at my new job. With the BART ride I get a full hour's worth of reading every day, it is like a little present that was completely unexpected. This can be a problem when I am so engrossed in a book that I missed my BART stop! The whole morning was a comedy of errors. Monday morning, my husband was on his way to drive me to work, we … [Read more...]
