This post was way over due. This was from our summer trip to Paris. Perfect day from denim shorts and sneakers. We roamed around the city all day and and absolutely enjoyed every second from the day we arrived. I hope to go back again soon to refresh my memory of how beautiful the city was.

Since Matt and I moved in together I've been focusing a lot on home improvement. From watching HGTV shows whenever I have a free time to doing some DIY projects with the help of Matt. Decorating has always been one my favorite things to do and now that I have more opportunity doing them in my own home it just gets more exciting. We will be starting a new series for Basics and Gold, Unique finds for your home. We're starting off from the kitchen. Here are the unique items we've been loving. 

1. Paper Towel Holder You'll always need a paper towel holder right? Here's one with the an iron bird to lock the paper towel in place. 
2. Concrete coaster We actually have them at our home. A local store in Truckee CA had sold these cool concrete coaster. Matt fell in love with them and kept saying "its concrete! so cool! we need them!"
3. Salt and pepper shakers I love salt and pepper. It's not good to put salt on your food all the time but I can't help it. Especially when it comes in this cute shakers.
4. Coffee mug I use to not drink coffee. But since I started working with the company I work with now, I had to. Working 11 hours straight will really make you seek for coffee. 
5. Cheese board Who doesn't love cheese? Especially when it's half marble and half wood. It has a great contrast and i think it makes the cheese taste better if its on a beautiful board. 
6. Measuring cups I recently received the Kitchen aid mixer from Matt on Christmas and it just gave me more motivation to bake. I would love to have a cute measuring cup like this to match with my white miser.  
7. Flatware I'm always on a hunt for gold flatware. Here's another one that caught my eye. 

I know this outfit is not appropriate for the weather we are having. This was from summer and I'm trying to catch up on blogging. However, it is summer in a some parts for the world so this is for you. 

Another Hi Neighbor restaurant is here to impress the people of San Francisco. I've always loved every experience I had with any of the Hi Neighbor restaurants. The Corridor was definitely a hit. We were very excited when this one opened. It has a lot more casual vibe than the other restaurant but definitely has the same good food they offer. They've been open for a few months now and by the looks of it people are loving this modern restaurant. We were lucky enough to get invited to try it a few days after they opened. I knew it would be great so I really don't have anything to say. Only thing I guess would be to go and see this unique restaurant and have a great unique experience of atmosphere and food. 

Hi Everyone! Happy New Year! I took a break from blogging due to a very schedule with my full time job. I tried my best to catch up on blogging but I couldn't catch up. I was exhausted as soon as I got home because I drive almost 2 hours to work one way. :( Blogging has always been my passion and I will never let go of it. It is a new year and I have told myself that I need balance in my life. I need to be able to do what I love. 

I am back and ready to write and share my thoughts with my readers.
