Super Duper 2016 Holiday Gift Guide

Catchy  name, right?! My plan was to do individual post for bloggers, for travelers, for foodies, but then I thought, "hey, I'm all those things" and I believe it's likely that you are too, or that you know people who are, so I decided to combine all my gift guides into one super duper guide with everything. You're welcome! I know, I know...who writes a 2700+ word gift guide? You're … [Read more...]

7 Years

Let the good times roll! Apparently I can't do math.  But I think you knew that about me.  In last month's Currently I said that I was going to be celebrating my eighth anniversary. Wrong. I am celebrating my 7th! I continue to love blogging but a lot of things have change since I started Misadventures with Andi in 2008. This blog is a creative outlet for me, a way to express and … [Read more...]

Saturday Six #129

It's that time. Grab a cup of coffee or tea...or depending on the time of day, a glass of wine and take a moment to check these six bloggers and the good work they're putting out into the blogosphere. [1] As a travel and food blogger based in the San Francisco Bay Area I get my fair share of invitations to amazing events, I am extremely lucky.  So it is very rare that the jealousy fairy visits, … [Read more...]

Saturday Six #127

It's been a long time. Too long. The Saturday Six series was one of my favorites. I love highlighting other blogger's work.  Life just got crazy and I wasn't reading as many blogs as consistently as I used to, so I let Saturday Six die a slow death. Saturday Six also allowed me to insert more of the personal day-to-day of what is going on in my life, something a few people have asked for from … [Read more...]

Paris Profiles – 10th Arrondissement with Daisy

I am having so much fun with my San Francisco Profiles series (and there are more of them to come!) that I decided to create a slightly different version for Paris. With the help of some my very favorite (and all incredibly talented and beautiful) friends in Paris, I will be exploring the various arrondissements of Paris, the little neighborhoods my friends live in and explore every day. First … [Read more...]

Saturday Six #125 on Sunday

What is that expression, a watched pot never boils? The more I think about how much I am not blogging the more blogging posts resonate with me!  Life is full of cycles with focuses fading in and out. I am seeing out inspiration when I am very acutely aware that it must come from within. I am really hoping that my upcoming trip to Paris will be just what the doctor ordered.  In the meantime, … [Read more...]

I adore her. Admire her photography and enjoy her Paris adventures … [Read more...]

Saturday Six #123

I know. I know.  It been more than a month since the last Saturday Six.  The only thing I can say is February kicked my ass and I am a little burnt out. It started with a work event on the Fox Studios lot, then the GRAMMYs, then the Wave, then the Patron Project, then the month culminating with the Oscars. I barely did any blog reading but I spent several hours catching up this week.  I made … [Read more...]

Saturday Six #122

I continue to love putting together this series which gives me an opportunity to highlight bloggers/writers/chefs who are putting out content that appeals to me.  I hope that if you are a fan of Misadventures with Andi, that we might have some things in common and you'll appreciate my Saturday Six picks as well :-) [1] I know I have said it a million times, but I love connecting with new blogs! … [Read more...]

Saturday Six #120

I am not going to tell you I am busy anymore, it is boring and seriously right now there is no end in sight, so maybe this is just my new state of being! I just have to figure out a better routine as my blogging is suffering.  I feel worn down (due to all that being busy I am not going to tell you about) and it saps my creative energy, again boring! So how are you?  From the blog reading I got … [Read more...]
