Infusing grandeur into otherwise drab Monday mornings with five things/ideas/events for the week:
I. This week, I’m craving Town Hall’s infamous butterscotch pot de creme. Lacking the time to get down to the much lauded restaurant, I will be making my version of the decadent chocolate/caramel combo for dessert tonight instead.
II. I am recently obsessed with the Etsy vendor who creates these stylish nautical-themed cards. The anchor stationary set, hand-embossed with a monogram, caught my attention. I ordered a pack for my favorite sailor as a thank you gift for a jaunt on her boat.
III. Anytime a girl receives flowers at work is cause for celebration - but when said flowers come from In Water the excitement is instantly amplified. The florist combines a signature banana-leaf wrapped vase with exotic floral elements to create the chicest arrangements in San Francisco.
IV. Luxe dishware to help you maintain healthy portions? Yes, please!! Slim & Sage, the masterminds behind this Hermes-esque plate, employed nutrition data from the Mayo Clinic to create an “optimized” (divided into three parts - ¼ whole grains, ¼ lean protein, 1/2 vegetables) 9-inch plate that promises to reduce your calorie-intake by 59%, when compared to traditional 12-inch dinner plates. Sign me up!
V. Unable to sleep yesterday, I decided to walk down to the Embarcadero to watch the sunrise. After taking in the stunning view, I popped into The Plant for breakfast. Tip: they open at 7:30AM, even on the weekends - try their delicious acai bowl!
Have a wonderful week!! xx tt
