Feast Your Eyes: Leopald's

It's the return of FYE! As I always say, please don't worry about me starving myself-- that will never happen. It's just that I've been really trying to eat clean and whenever I find a chance to eat out, I tend to devour it before I get a chance to snap a pic. Yikes!

Fear not, I've been a much better blogger lately and have been frivolously snapping away great pics for you guys. 

A few weeks ago, the gang and I dined at Leopald's, a charming little German spot. We had an abundance of weiners, beer and sauerkraut. See for yourself!

 Isn't the little piggy wooden block totally adorbs?!

Yums! And what's a German meal without some good 'ol Das Boot?

Happy Monday!

Just Doing Me

From the wild wild summer of yolo to the stress of a new job, somehow, I managed to survive.  Hands down, this summer has been one of the best summer EVER but all good things come to an end. It's time to simmer down and...

Somewhere along the line, I went a little out of control and stopped focusing on taking good care myself and doing things that I love. You know, taking care of my body, skin, going shopping, doing my own nails, etc. I know this may all sound a little superficial but trust that it's more about feeding my soul than my outwards appearance. Now that my job is no longer "new" and summer is not longer full of "yolo's",

I need to step up my game and learn to juggle fitness, work, fun and a little me-time.

Story of a Purse #NSale

In the spirit of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, I'd like to share not only my picks but the story of how I fought for my Rebecca Minkoff 5-zip purse.

They say hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, throw a purse in the mix and boy you know you're in trouble. 

The story goes like this, I ordered this lovely purse, in-store, during the pre-sale.

I was told to expect my purse to be delivered within the next 3-6 business days. Patiently, I waited. After two days without any shipping confirmation, I decided to hit up Nordies via live chat for the status. I was then told that my order was "stuck in the system" and would likely be canceled due to low inventory. What?! You mean to tell me that I won't be getting my hands on the purse I've been mentally pairing with every single outfit? Unacceptable! I was promised a purse and a purse I will get! So I did what every smart consumer would do. I went on Twitter and Facebook and expressed my disappointment. Within 5 hours, I received a call from the SF Center manager to let me know that she found me a purse. I must give credit where credit's due-- the Nordie's social team was on it! They responded within minutes and turned the whole situation from bad to fabulous. 

Moral of the story? Social media is a consumer's best friend and Nordies really care about their customers!

In other news, here are the other things I picked up during the sale. The Anniversary sale is the one sale I look forward to every year, surely I get a pass for going a little overboard!
