City Guide: Where to eat, drink, and shop in San FranciscoSan Francisco will forever be one of my favorite cities. I was living there at the time when I decided to take this blog full time (which OMG was over four years ago now). It also helped me understand the true possibility of decorating with pink, which pro tip here, you can never have enough. For those reasons alone it will always have a special place in my heart. Revisiting it on the book tour definitely rekindled my love for my former home. Ryan and I got to explore the city in a car this time (thanks Enterprise for making that happen), and see some of my favorite spots which lead me thinking… it’s about time that I share my favorite places with you! I’m sure a lot has changed since I lived there, so if you have any other reccomendations let me know so I can add them to my list for my next visit. But for now, here are my favorite places to eat, drink, shop, and see in San Francisco!  Continue reading…

First Year in San Francisco

Well I’m not sure how it’s happened already, but we’ve been in San Francisco for a year now! It seems like just yesterday we we’re in Portland floating down rivers and paying next to nothing for rent. Believe me, I miss that sometimes, but it didn’t take me long to fall in love with SF. The city is buzzing with so many creatives, entrepreneurs, and startups that it’s hard not to be inspired. First Year in SF | The Crafted Life

Instead of gushing further about how great San Francisco is, I thought I’d share my top 5 neighborhood (North Beach) places!

In no particular order

1. Tony’s Pizza– if you want delicious pizza, look no further. Their menu is divided by temperature and what type of oven the pizzas are cooked in, so  you know they take their craft seriously.

2. Stella Bakery– cutest little bakery with the best eclairs in town. They’re also open until midnight on the weekends.

3. Molinari Deli– an authentic italian deli with the best meat I’ve ever tasted. They also make sandwiches which are out of this world.

4. Naked Lunch– Great bar with outdoor seating, pool tables and a basketball machine. They also serve food and have an excellent happy hour.

5. Dell’Uva– my love for this place all started with bottomless mimosas on the weekend. You can also grab some food, a glass of wine and sit outside.
