Happy 2nd week of 2015!  Anybody sticking to their resolutions so far?  I decided to continue a positive attitude and work on things with more focus this year…. plus, travel and explore more.  I also do want to attempt to blog more often.  I know I always fall off the band wagon, but I def want to carve out more time for this in 2015!

Anyhoo, there’s nothing more beautiful than artsy mosaic steps and an awesome view of the city during a radiant sunset. A couple unconventional spots you can check out whenever you are in San Francisco are the Moraga Steps and Turtle Hill.  Turtle Hill is right up the hill from the artsy Moraga Steps.  For all you looking for a great photo op, this is the place to be.

Located on 16th Avenue (between Noriega St & Moraga St) in the southern part of San Francisco, this area draws a crowd all day long and depicts a good picture of the artistic community that San Francisco creates. Inspired by the famous stairs in Rio De Janero, these steps were meticulously created to build a beautiful walkway for the whole city to enjoy.

Conveniently up the hill is Turtle Hill. A great spot to just get away from the hustle and bustle, to clear your mind, or enjoy a scenic view of the city. I personally can never get tired of a sunset. You never know what new colors the skies will illuminate everyday.   They are also daily reminders of how beautiful the world can be. #itsthelittethings

Hope you all have a great week!

I spent the holidays in San Francisco and got the opportunity to explore areas that I always wanted to check out, but never had the time to.  Since I was in the Bay Area for over a week, it was the perfect time to hit up Muir Woods National Park.   I love to explore new areas, go on hikes, and be outdoors.   The crisp and sunny weather also permitted my friends and I to have a beautiful hike around the red woods.  Muir Woods holds lots of history that stems back to 1945.  The redwoods themselves dominate the scene, but there are also various plants all over the forest floor and the canopy above our heads.

The redwood trees are over 200 years old.  At the park, you could choose from various trails that range in distance.  Being engulfed around so many skyscraper-high trees felt extremely calm and serene.  There’s something about natures natural beauty that rejuvenates me.  The hike at Muir Woods was not too long and not too short.  Perfect for a Saturday stroll.  If you are ever in the San Francisco area for a short trip, here are:

Five places to visit in San Francisco:

1) Muir Woods – For the outdoor, adventurous side in you.

2) Moraga Steps – For the colorful mosaic steps. Will have a blog post about my time here soon!

3) Twin Peaks – For a clear view of the city.

4) Golden Gate Bridge – For what San Francisco is known for all over the world.

5) Dolores Park – For the chill, laid-back side in you that wants to have a picnic and people watch.

There is so much more this city can offer.  It’s def my second home!

My sister and I are finally back from our east coast trip and back to our daily grind.  I will post pics of our amazing trip soon.  But first, every year my girls and I get together for an annual Christmas Exchange, and with all our busy schedules, we just barely did it two weeks ago in San Francisco.  I know it’s already February and we are super late, but better late than never!  It’s always a blast and good freakin times when we all reunite.  This trip was especially special because one my girlfriends got engaged!  I’m so happy we got to share that epic moment with her.  Plus, it gave us another reason to celebrate!

Some of the gorgeous scenic pictures above are from Twin Peaks.  San Francisco has always been a city that I fall in love with every time I visit.  It was such a beautiful day to just hang out with friends and enjoy the SF view.  That day was also the first time I wore my leopard pants, and I love them!  Such a great and cheap buy.

P.S. My sister finally decided to share some of her pics on the blog! haha

Happy Tuesday everyone!
