january life lately

hello from SA!!!!
because i'll be here for the rest of this month, i'm posting
a few memories from january before all of the south africa 
posts come along. what a month it's already been!
i'll say it a thousand times ... this never gets old ^^
^^ pretty blue sky january days, and chase's last day
working at mountain view google headquarters. now
he is in the SF google office with his new job and loving
it, but missing his best work bud tom...and me :)
a definite highlight of january ^^
january blooms at the ferry building farmers market ^^
^^ honestly, california? you win january. 
love running along the bay trail.
clear blue days and pretty views ^^
^^ pears and pretty views. i like january in SF.
post-holiday shopping sales with chase 
= j.crew + zara finds ^^

my favorite blue building to run by, 
and where i keep my key on runs ^^

 january included an in-apartment massage
+ getting organized with these cute post-its ^^

also - framing favorite prints + SA packing ^^

^^ the best part of january is a new calendar on the wall! //
this inscription on my kate spade bracelet is my favorite.
 boat harbors and bike rides ^^
 we discovered that one of our FAVORITE stores 
{vineyard vines} came in across the bay...uh oh! ^^
two of my favorite spots to be ^^
 the best reminder. 
 we made our chatbook of india, it was so easy and simple!
use my code WELLTW for your first book free in a series!
^^ we made a custom book instead of one just off instagram,
so that i could include all the india pictures i wanted..
i love that they have this option as well as instagram photos!
^^ a ferry building favorite. two words: morning bun.
 we took a quick dinner to our cute friends who just had
a baby and it made me think...i want some ideas for 
anyone's go-to meals to take others! tell me! ^^
 packing for SA ^^
my new laptop keyboard thanks to mindy! ^^

breakfast sandwich dates..worth the line! ^^
 rainy ferry rides ^^
^^ we loved spending time with the baucom's who 
came in town from LA for a visit...and some bob's!

^^ the best steak dinner to bring in january at
bobo's lounge...mouth watering and a fun location!
card nights with friends = i won hearts!
for christmas chase made his best friend sam a website
called mostly as a joke, but kind of serious..
haha oh chase, what a friend! sam really is the best
guy, so if you know any interested girls send them to for a laugh - and potentially their soulmate :) 
 i found this picture of my grandma ginny and love it
so much! pretty sure she is the cutest person alive. ^^
another cutest person alive = my sweetest friend ash.
she mailed me a care package for my long flights
complete with treats, notes, magazines, and talks! ^^
^^ veryyyy long flights, but scored with a 
row to MYSELF for all 12 hours!
^^ i flew SFO--> london on a 747 and so chase
made me take pictures of everything...they are 
double decker so here is the staircase going up!
i LOVED flying virgin atlantic and can't say 
enough good things about this hip airline 
with some of the best customer service. ^^
 my airplane read...loving it ^^
 so fun to land back in london!! ^^
^^ i BETTER be back here with chase in 2015.
i can't believe he has never been here!!!!
 hello, old favorites ^^
 stocked up on the best european candies that i miss ^^
^^ and last but not least, i'm missing this cute boy 
as i'm in south africa and he had to stay to start his 
new job! he does get to ride the trolley through SF to 
work though, so let's not feel too bad for him :)
plus, we'll be back in johannesburg together!

cheers to january. i am so excited to share the
adventure of south africa soon! it is heaven!



  1. two things! where is that keyboard cover from?? I LOVE! and secondly that website is hilarious! I'll date sam! :) (but seriously!)

    1. hi! it's from h&m! haha yay --- apply!!!!!

  2. San fran is just the best city! How amazing would that be to ride the trolley to work everyday!

  3. first of all, those ladies bums in your grandma's picture = major lol.
    also please let me know how you like the scrub!
    also i'm obsessed with those flowers.

    1. LOL GOOD find. i was wondering if anyone would notice that in the background-- hehe!

  4. I love that quote you shared - such a great reminder!!

  5. What a fun month so far! I think I need to start flying Virgin for our long haul flights- I'm officially over United. I can't wait to read about your South Africa adventure!

  6. those double decker planes are pretty sweet. jae did the same thing when we got to fly on one to tokyo...walked all around checking everything out and finding the staircase to the top level ;) silly boys. can't wait to read more about SA!

  7. Your entire life seems to burst off the page when you do these amazing monthly recaps. Your keyboard is TO DIE FOR! Have a wonderful time in SA! Can't wait to read about i!

  8. I have so many things to say about this post! Firstly, tying your key to your shoe laces is genius! I will definitely be trying that on my next run. Secondly, definitely agree with you about Virgin. They are definitely one of the best airlines I have flown with. FINALLY, if you come to England again you should definitely think about doing a meet and greet! P.S Daim's are the best!

  9. You won't be able to find more for your money. Trust me; this place for wedding reception is really suitable for any size of gathering. By the way, they offer a day care room with lots of toys for children.


leave us some love! ♥♥
