Helllooo and welcome to my second Month in Review!
How was your guys’ September? I can’t believe fall is already here: even though I live in the Bay Area, it almost looks like a scene straight out of New England. There are so many different orange, yellow, and brown leaves falling in my neighborhood… but it’s still so freaking hot in San Francisco!
(Our summers are reversed: it’s cold in August and hot in September, wtf 😭)
Anyway, I’m not complaining at all. I can’t wait to pull out all of the scarves and coats from my closet and finally put them to good use – and go on all sorts of fall adventures in California.
Ready to see what else I did this month? Let’s check out what happened in September!
Helllloooo and welcome to my first Month in Review!
I’ve been meaning to do a blog post series like this for a while now, and finally got around to doing it. Since I don’t post as frequently as I would like to, hopefully these monthly reviews will give you a better glimpse into my life.
(and in the meantime, guilt me into actually posting more often)
This series is going to be very casual and similar to what I would normally write as a WhatsApp message
or a long wall of text to a friend. Also don’t be surprised if you see more emojis than you were expecting to, I can finally let loose 😛
Ready? Let’s check out what happened in August!
Paris may have the Louvre and New York may have the MoMA, but San Francisco has something even better – The Color Factory. 😉
The Color Factory is a pop-up exhibit that’s going on for two months in downtown San Francisco. It includes over 10,000 colored ribbons, a giant yellow ball pit, and about a dozen rooms full of color – plus, there are even a few sweet treats!
Sounds awesome, right? The demand for tickets was so high, that they sold out in the first week – and everything for August and September are totally booked. I was lucky enough to get a few tickets for my friends and I – including you guys!
Are you ready to (virtually) see what’s on the other side of the rainbow? Let’s go! Continue reading
Are you stuck in Cuba, tired of all those retro cars and have nothing to do? Do you want to visit the USSR but don’t have an intergalactic space machine? No te preocupes, amigo, I have just the place for you. Follow me and let’s eat…
Nikita Khrushchev called it the most beautiful city in the United States, while Ashleigh Brilliant noted that “there may not be a heaven, but there is San Francisco.” Anthony Bourdain said that anyone who doesn’t have a great time in San Francisco is pretty much dead to him.
But the best way to sum it up is through Rudyard Kipling’s quote: “San Francisco has only one drawback – it’s hard to leave.” And it’s true!
One of my favorite ways to ‘travel’ without actually buying a plane ticket is to read books about that place. Get wrapped up in a juicy fiction novel, flip through the photos of a coffee table book … heck, you can even get lost on the streets of a tourist guide (hey there, Lonely Planet!) or fill in the blanks of a coloring book.
