SATURDAY: Photo shoot in the Berkeley Hills wraps with a toast: St. Germain, sparkling rose, and a splash of Pellegrino. Want to know a secret? It tastes like candy.
SATURDAY NIGHT: My birthday celebration at Bin 38. The gals surprised me with tasty cupcakes and the yellow ban.do I've been eyeing!
SUNDAY: After an afternoon of shopping in San Francisco's Pacific Heights neighborhood, we journeyed across the bridge for our launch party at the Kate Spade store in Marin County.
SUNDAY NIGHT: West Coast Launch Party! Here's another secret: Kate Spade stores = toy store for grown-ups. Saturated colors, luxe fabrics, sparkles galore - what's not to love?
As soon as I walked in, I spotted the much debated and adored saucers.
Katie Armour of The Neotraditionalist attended. Love her blog. Love her outfit. Love her.
MONDAY: I went back to Fillmore Street for some more shopping. I spent at least 20 minutes in my new favorite home store, Nest. The merchandise included darling ceramic accents for entertaining, collage art, French scented candles, John Robshaw quilts, and so much more. I highly recommend stopping in if you're in the neighborhood.
