Just catching up from some busy weeks. I was in NYC (which I will tell you about in my next post) and then I went to the UK as well. Here are two pieces for BELLA.
Optimizing Ourselves – It was my research about supplements and vitamin regimes on the market today.
Top 5 Local Must-Do’s in 5 Iconic Cities – Looks at a survey of 5 cities around the world and their Must Do lists as noted by locals.
I spent a few days collecting writing material for my next piece for RESIDENT magazine – a city guide on SF. I stayed at the Hotel Vetta, which was an amazing location. Steps from the train and the cable car without being overly loud.
I checked out the new and improved SFMOMA (coupled with Detour) and SPiN. Eating is never an issue, and I check out really great fare at ATwaterTavern (Seafood) and the Americano (Italian) restaurant.
I forgot just how many hills there are in SF – but walking around definitely helped not being in the gym for a week. Unfortunately, I missed Mr. Holmes Bakehouse, but my cousin introduced me to Blue Bottle Coffee (which was delicious).
The art theme continues with the introduction to Vancouver artist, Tiggy Ross. I have to say – Instagram is perfect for connecting people via hashtag.
I’m intrigued by Tiggy’s use of watercolour combo’s and can’t wait to see what other elements of nature Tiggy uses in her art.
I’ll be waiting along with everyone else for the big reveal of her website on July 30!
Don’t forget to follow her on Instagram: @TiggyRoss and ‘Like’ her page on Facebook.
It wouldn’t be fair to showcase artists and not highlight one of my favourites – Janelle Burger. She does fabulous fashion illustrations, stationery, iPhone cases and even shirts. Check out her online store. I was lucky that she was able to do illustrations and the cover for my own book, The Love List.
Located in Paris, I had the opportunity to meet up with her early this year and visit one of her favourite places, Le Bon Marche. It was fantastic!
