loft life / year 2

Since we decided we’re going to be staying in our small & cozy artist loft for a couple of months, Fino and I are looking to spruce up the space a bit. We’re thinking of making it a little less industrial and a lot more simple. With the amount of stuff we’ve accumulated over the years, we thought it be a great time to minimize & have our space looking like these photos down below:

for the bed: moroccan pom pom wool blanket

image

for the common area: white couch with some wooden tables

image

for the kitchen: a small cart to use for essentials

image

for the dining area: two small stools and a table

let’s escape for 24

In less than a month, I’ll be exploring parts of New York with one of my best friends, Tamerra, who’s been living there for 2 years now! Its going to be a celebration for my 24th birthday. The last time I went to New York, it was about four years ago and Tamerra didn’t even live there. We were literally just scoping it out!

I’m doing tons of research on places to go in Brooklyn (that’s where she lives)! Looking at a map has been somewhat confusing but I’m jotting down vegan restaurants, coffee shops and bars as I go. Comment below if you have any suggestions or recommendations on places to visit in both Brooklyn & Manhattan!

cheers,

screen printing for lululemon

For the past two months, we’ve been doing complimentary screen printing here at lululemon Grant Ave in SF. My friend, Kiri, and I created a couple of designs and decided to do a pop-up print shop every now in then in the store.

Making these for the store was a goal of ours and it’s been such a success ever since we started! It’s so exciting to see your design on someone!

gotta keep the good ones

My style hasn’t changed a bit from where it was a year ago. But lately, it’s constantly been on the go from all of this traveling. I have to admit that ever since I got back from vacation, I’ve been finding myself a little bit all over the place lately and a little bit unorganized.

So, I decided to get rid of a couple of my clothes and came to the conclusion that Fino and I are going to stay in our loft for a couple more months even though our lease is up soon. It’s all about appreciating the moment and keeping what matters to you the most, right? Here are my favorite pieces of my wardrobe I decided to keep:

lululemon athletica: ok hi tee / seize the day jacket / high times crop *shine / madewell: the transport tote 

active / style 03

Had a chance to style, photograph & interview athlete and runner Annie Mai! She’s done a couple of Fitness & Figure competitions and is one of the strongest women I know.

image

Name: Annie Mai

Occupation: Sr. Account Manager for Conversant Media (digital advertising)

What are you wearing? Weightless Crew + Run for Fun Crop

Favorite Feature? Ribbing on waistband, pockets, and bottoms for the crop, softness of the crew, both feel like butter!

image image

Where would you most likely wear this to? Lululemon Grant Ave Run Club! I would also wear the crops to my group exercise classes (Spin, Bodypump, kickboxing, bootcamp) and the crew to-and-from.

What’s usually in your bag? Too much stuff- wallet, glasses, sunglasses, water bottle, ipad, iphone, 2 sets of keys, kleenex, vaseline, chapstick, tide stick, hair tie, gum, lotion, etc.

image

Top 3 summer fashion essentials? cross-body bag (Rebecca Minkoff- mini 5 zip or mini mac), sunglasses (Ray-Ban- I have 4 pairs- wayfarers or aviators), sweater (Lululemon, for those cool, summer nights! universal wrap, transformation wrap, post practice cardi, )

Favorite spot in SF where the locals go: Too many to count- but growing up in San Francisco- I  have fond memories of going to Stow Lake with my family and renting the boats and buying popcorn!

get styled / lululemon + lookmazing

Last month, I threw a styling event for lululemon athletica Grant Avenue. It was one of my goals all summer to get people inspired on styling to-and-from pieces! We partnered with LookMazing (www.lookmazing.com), a fashion and beauty social network for individuals to showcase their personal style through photo ‘looks’ that can be easily shopped and shared.

image

The lululemon colab noir collection was featured throughout the event and a couple of my co-workers and I had a chance to style some looks!

image

LookMazing set up an awesome photo booth for event attendees to get photographed in their styled look.

image

I had a great time meeting fellow bloggers and getting to know some people who sweat in our community. Thank you to all who made this event happen!
