A day in the City By The Bay is a feast for the senses....the drama of outdoor cafes, shop windows tempting one to come in...seductive smells + mouth watering treats from distant cultures begging to be tasted.
Whether it's Starbucks, Blue Bottle or a nameless street cafe...these caffeine havens are where the stylish gather to sip, work, gossip.
Is a joy FOREVER, unless you are a chocolate stiletto! Window shopping in my adopted town of Saint Helena I came to a dead stop in front of Woodhouse Chocolates. Come in, touch me, try me...these lusciously designed shoes beckoned. Irresistable, as any designer shop on Madison Avenue.
Like all naughty but delicious luxury treats these come handsomely packaged. No worries if you can't get to the Napa Valley. Woodhouse Chocolates, although Made in the Napa Valley, can be ordered online, http://www.woodhousechocolate.com/default.asp
So you can have a net-a-porter thrill for your mouth.
With so much neon screaming for attention, there is something so delightful in the barely there pastels. Mint, yellow, pale pink.... colors like a sweet + sour Grapefruit Granita on a hot summer's day.
Keep it fresh, keep it simple add a pair of pastel jeans and wear it with a simple white or grey t-shirt...not up for pastel jeans go for a barely there pink sneaker.
Different pastels of similiar hues make for a delicate, airy treat.
Pale mint walls clear this room's palate as well. A breathe of fresh air.
