Urban Girl Almanac: Nippy

Urban Girl Almanac: Nippy

Brrr. It’s a cold day in San Francisco, in the 40’s on my walk to work this morning. It really feels like Christmas now. Here’s what I’ve learned this week:

  • I’d rather never go through a series of business meetings like this week’s ever again.
  • Gordon Biersch has good garlic fries.
  • When needed, it’s important to just let go of all those holiday “to-dos” and relax.
  • I like shopping at Flax, but it’s a little infuriating that the cards and envelopes aren’t better organized or matched. It felt a bit like a reality show competition trying to pick out our set.
  • The fig and tobacco leaf Botanicus candles my hairstylist gave me for Christmas smell nice.
  • Loving my new Voyager phone.
  • I’m against this new trend of automatically printed, addressed and drop-shipped holiday cards. There should be some sort of hand-done gesture in there.
  • 30 Rock’s brilliant Christmas episode last night made me briefly forget the writer’s strike.
  • Guilty pleasure: methodically chipping off all my nail polish.
  • I’m copying Nicole Richie’s pashmina-around-coat-collar look today.
  • Hooray for fat babies! My co-worker’s son has these glorious creased wrists.

This is holiday party weekend for Rob and me. We’ve got an office event tonight, two parties tomorrow and another on Sunday. How fun!

    I love the pashmina-around-coat-collar look as well. I might copy that too!
