wifi & work spots in san francisco

i recently shared that i went out on my own to launch my own company, lucky collective. it’s been about six weeks or so working by myself, and it’s already learned a lot about myself, both personally and professionally. one of the most challenging things has been being alone all day, as i’m extroverted and feed off the energy of other people. instead of working from my apartment all day, i try to switch it up and work from a coffee shop or cafe in either the morning or afternoon. i’m always on the lookout for good spots with wifi so thought i would share my go-to places to work.

I recently went to an event, hosted by Inforum at the Commonwealth Club, that I want to share about! Inforum produces Bay Area events, where you can listen to and meet “local celebrities” in entertainment, tech, pop culture, politics, etc. The event I went to was a cocktail reception and Q&A with the founders of Future Bars, the guys behind Bourbon and Branch and other popular Bay Area cocktail bars. It was super interesting to hear the stories about how they got started, what the purpose of their bars is all about and more. My *favorite* part (other than sipping their yummy cocktails!) was hearing about how they […]

#sftaste photo recap!

this past thursday, i attended the incredible taste of the nation event and wanted to share some photos! as mentioned in a previous post, the event brings together amazing local chefs who make food for guests to sample and enjoy. the event benefits no kid hungry, a movement that partners with local nonprofits to make sure children are getting the food and nutrition that they need. they are still tallying numbers from the event, but the latest i heard was that the event raised over $250,000 to end child hunger. so amazing! aimee and i went together last year and had a blast, but this year, it […]

Join me for Taste of the Nation in SF!

Join me for Taste of the Nation in SF!

I’m so excited to be partnering with No Kid Hungry for their upcoming Taste of the Nation event in San Francisco THIS THURSDAY! I attended the dinner last year with Aimee and had SO much fun sampling food and drinks from amazing spots in the Bay Area, plus gathering around people who are donating their time, money and resources, striving to end childhood hunger. Did you know that 23% of children in California live in poverty? And 37% of demand for food assistance in San Francisco is unmet. San Francisco is one of the richest cities in terms of cuisine and chef talent and all around amazing places […]

#TREATYOSELF: cinta salon in SF

what are your favorite ways to TREAT YOURSELF? mine typically include: buying myself flowers and/or plants, shopping for something special, an extra glass of champagne or pampering myself. i love going to get my nails done…and get facials…and get massages…and get my hair blown out….okay you get the point. i’m currently hooked on these SEPHORA face & eye masks and can’t stop buying / wearing them. when eric was recently traveling for work and i was feeling particularly bored after work and in a #TREATYOSELF mood (and after going through 3 SEPHORA face masks earlier that week…), i stopped in to get a facial at cinta […]
