Day one of 365

My best friend Cleo is coming to visit in two weeks and can i just express my overall excitement please. Ahhhhhhhhhh! I need help figuring out what to do with her, i already have a couple things planned but i want to make sure her visit is as special as possible. So, she’s a sophisticated parisian that is super chic. We’re planning on going to the ballet, exploring local cafés, having afternoon tea, cycling in golden gate park, going to the de young, and hiking near the legion of honor. Anything else you’d think she’d find interesting?

Xx,

Sophie

write

January 27, 2016

I love reading and writing, I always have and always will. It really is an art form and I have felt myself drifting away from it. This blog was created to share and give insight and I just can’t do that sometimes. I can’t always make everything perfect-no one can. I want to post, there is a deep feeling that wants to create and provide content but I can’t seem to share it. I want that to change. For however long now I will just write, it might be two sentences or two pages. I know that there are so many creatives that have shared how they post a picture a day and that lets their creative insides run free. So I’ll write everyday.

For all you perfectionists, the best youtube channel with the best insight on how to create

Flowers

January 17, 2016

Flowers, oh flowers. Some people think that flowers are a waste of money and I can happily say that they are wrong. Flowers bring peace and happiness. And they are beautiful…

If you’re ever in San Francisco and in desperate need of cheering up I highly recommend Ampersand. The place is decked out in fairy lights and of course, flowers. You can either make your own bouquet or have the lovely people at Ampersand make them for you (they are really, really great at what they do 🙂 ).

Try and tell me that isn’t beautiful,

Meals // Week 01

January 3, 2016

My number one resolution this year is to create more. Whether that be baking, painting, knitting, blogging, etc. it doesn’t matter, I just need to create things. I love cooking and hopefully spending a half hour each week to plan what I’m going to make in the upcoming week will lead me to creating more meals.

What I wrote on the first page: Here, in this notebook, every week of 2016, I will plan out meals for the upcoming week. I will plan out 2-5ish recipes that I want to make and will grocery shop and create them when time allows. All the recipes will come from cookbooks… not the internet (yes, that includes Pinterest). We’ll see how this goes, cheers! Xx.

Reminder: This is for fun, not work. So, enjoy cooking and planning.
