Dining Out in Cow Hollow: Palm House Restaurant

San Francisco's foodie scene is full of hidden gems, especially because residents often hole up in their base neighborhoods and seldom venture out. If you haven't made Cow Hollow a destination for a girls' night out or a date night, get there as soon as you can. And land at Palm House on 2032 Union Street.

Mindful Consumption: The 2015 8 for 4 Challenge

It's May and that means it time once again for the Spring Mindful Consumption Challenge. The 8 for 4 Challenge: 8 items of clothing for four weeks.
 

Wooden Hangers

 

Last May I set out to see if I could wear six items of clothing for four weeks (a creative challenge initially raised in 2010 by a now offline website, SixItemsorLess). My goals? To examine how I was spending my fashion dollars. To go through my closet and donate any items that still had yet to be tailored or still had tags still on them.
 

Could you wear just eight (or six) pieces of clothing for four weeks?

Having It All - A Myth or Obtainable Reality

Later this month new literature, The Art of Having It All: A Woman's Guide to Unlimited Abundance, will be adding to the Having It All debate. And from its dust jacket, I'm realistic that this will be just one more source exhorting women of the evils of choosing parenthood over a path to an executive office.

How do you manage to "have it all"?
 

Why is Having It All so enticing? Because no one wants to have to chose. We all want to believe everything and anything is possible. What follows are my thoughts on whether Having It All is a myth or an obtainable reality.

A Romantic Glamping Retreat for Valentine's Day

Courtship is thrilling. Every day takes a back seat to romance, to the thrill you feel when you see each other. You plan trips to get away, to escape the ordinary and just be together. And then the newness wears off or schedules get in the way.

Things I Learned at Alt Summit Winter 2015

I always feel that my year doesn't really start until I'm back from Salt Lake City. This year, for the third year, I headed to Salt Lake City for Alt Summit. Alt Summit is a business conference for creatives and bloggers. There are sessions on entrepreneurship, using your business to do good, social media promotion, and more.
