Infusing grandeur into otherwise drab Monday mornings with five things/ideas/events for the week:
I. Yesterday I hosted a baby shower for one of my closest girlfriends. I signed up to bring cupcakes to the party, but ran out of time to actually make them - and it was too late to place an order at my favorite bakery. In a bind, I found myself perusing the cupcakes at Safeway… I decided that they were better than no cupcakes, and swapped the plastic decorations for fresh raspberries. No one new the difference! This is a great option in a pinch.
II. Get your tickets to the Junior League Fashion Showcase before they sell-out!! The three-day event is not to be missed. Shop with 26 curated vendors, including Kirabella, Toss, Ports 1961, Trina Turk, and Westward Leaning - party the evening away with DJ Chris Clouse at White Nights on the Water - and catch the fashion show featuring Brooks Brothers and Jin Wang with a performance by Pop Rocks!
III. San Francisco is facing another cold spell this week, and I plan to keep warm by making a batch of my favorite mushroom bisque with truffle foam! The earthy flavor combined with perfumed froth is the perfect antidote to the winter chill.
V. While vacationing in San Diego over the weekend, I had the opportunity to check out a medical helicopter with a friend who is a flight physician. While slightly terrifying, it was an incredible experience to see the air-ambulance firsthand.
Have a wonderful week!! xx tt
