Weekend Moments | Nº35

    Hi hi! I’m excited to get back on track with Weekend Moments, and continue to share with you fun things to try, noteworthy recipes or restaurants to explore, and life updates – because all of the best things happen over the weekend. I took a slight hiatus from this segment (and to be honest, a consistent daily post as of late) because I wanted to step away and think about what I want my cadence to look like. I’ve had the opportunity these past few months since solely focusing on BoC to figure out what I want to do with my time, my content, and would love to know what you want to see on here as well! If there’s anything at all, please don’t hesitate to reach out! Now that I’m back into the groove expect to see more Weekend Notes, Freshly Picked (best style/beauty finds each month), Monthly MoodboardsTravel Notes, and Style Edit.


    In other news, the weekend was lovely. We attempted a park picnic yesterday afternoon, but the sunshine out of our window was a bit deceiving! It’s a little tough to enjoy Blue Barn when the lettuce is flying off of your fork every time you attempt to take a bite. I forgot to read the weather forecast fine print – aka the heavy winds! This was a blessing in disguise though because our apartment needed some attention. Our storage, under our bed, and slowly building up in our kitchen – looked a whole lot like Monica Bings secret locked closet. We probably spent 3-4 hours sifting through everything and de-cluttering complete chaos. It feels so good to wake up on a Monday though, with everything in its place. We shall see how long that lasts. 🙂

    Late last week we also heard some more news about our puppy. The mom ended up not being able to get pregnant, which was a bummer to hear, but we were able to join a new litter, and we’re so excited to finally know a due date so we can start planning accordingly! Our puppy will be born the first week of July, so we should have him/her by end of August or early September. Gahhhh!

    A few other notes from le weekend:

    TO TRY | If you haven’t already, you must try Leo’s Oyster Bar if you’re in San Francisco. I recommend this place for tropical cocktails or rosé (Island Girl is my favorite)
    TO BUY | I just ordered a couple of Levis from Amazon and I’m obsessed, plus they are a bit cheaper than anywhere else I’ve seen them. // I got these and these (I suggest going up a size)
    MORE TO COME | With the new freshly organized apartment, and our couch arriving this week – I will be sharing a whole home tour again soon – a lot has changed since The Everygirl feature, moving in a bit of a new direction, and I look forward to sharing!
    TO LISTEN | Lastly, I have a new playlist to follow along on Spotify called ‘Weekending’ (username is brunchonchestnut), listening to it now!

    I hope you have an inspiring and productive Monday! x
    Follow along on Instagram for daily inspiration.

      I love the balance of content that you have on the site. From sharing bits of your weekend and what you are loving to interior design and style. I’d love a round up of your fave spots around SF sometime. From cute must-visit shops to your favorite places for drinks and brunch. You did something like this in the past that I loved. If there are any new additions to the list, would love to see 🙂 xo

      • Hi Amira! Hope you enjoyed your weekend! Thanks for saying hello and the tip 🙂 I am actually working on Best of Chestnut Street, and from there will definitely start including more of my favorite go-to’s! Thanks, lady! x

      I love what you’ve been doing with the site! Always the most beautiful content. Just subscribed to your Spotify profile and listening to Weekending now – I’ve been needing something new!

      xo, Annie

      • Aw, thanks love! Same to you! If you have any good recommendations to add to Weekending, let me know! xx

    • Ugh everytime I see photos of Leo’s I want to make a trip out that way to visit the restaurant alone! It’s so much fun! Also love your Spotify playlists! I listen often <3

      • It’s darling! The back room just opened up too, I saw a peek when they first opened when it was still under construction and the end results had me in meltdown mode! PURE perfection, the designer in charge!

      Such a great tip to order Levi’s via Amazon! Would not have thought to look there. And we loved your apartment in The Everygirl feature, so we’re excited to see what’s new!

      • Oh my gosh, friend… always check Amazon! I swear they have almost everything. I always double check items on there for the prime shipping and usually cheaper price points! xx

    • YAY for a new puppy! So exciting!
