PERFECT 10 PICKS.
Happy Tuesday! Honestly, March is off to a great start and I can't wait to see how the rest of the month unfolds. It is hard to believe that we are already in the third month of the year. It seems like I was just sipping on Martinelli's and eating Funfetti with friends in Bodega Bay as we all tried to make it to midnight! Where has the time gone?
Yesterday I had the fun opportunity to babysit my goddaughter Clementine! She is ten months old and is adorable! We had so much fun playing, laughing, napping, and walking around Noe Valley. If you saw a lady in a leopard baseball hat pushing a stroller- that was me!
Today I wanted to share some fun things that are on my radar (I had to share the fun picture above from my post with Stylelend because I love red roses and just because Valentine's Day is over doesn't mean you can't have roses in your life):
One // My friend Kristen is opening a new restaurant in Noe Valley this weekend! It is called Novy and is located on the corner of 24th and Noe. I walk by it every day and peek in the window to see how the construction is going. If we're in town this weekend, Jesse and I are going to attend the opening. Read more about Kristen and Novy here.
Two // Did you see I curated a sale on Zulily for Pink Blush Maternity? You can shop the sale here! Read my blog post on maternity style for Zulily here! I'm also giving away $100 to Zulily. Find out how to enter on Perfect 10 SF Instagram.
Three // Something I have had on my to-do list for a while has been to get a facial. I am excited to say I finally have one scheduled for next week. I'm looking forward to getting out of the city and heading to SkinSpirit in Mill Valley. Be sure to check back for more on my experience!
Four // I mentioned last week that I am reading "The 5 Love Languages of Children". I'm absolutely loving it and I suggest everyone read "The 5 Love Languages" so you can learn more about yourself and how you receive love. The 5 languages are: words of affirmation, quality time, physical touch, receiving fits, and acts of service. You might think that my love language is receiving gifts (ha!) but it is actually quality time. Growing up, my family spent a lot of time together (we still do) and it's how I feel loved. It's been hard recently because everyone is so busy! So I try and send texts or emails to people that I can't see as often as I'd like to let them know I'm thinking of them. Jesse's love language is touch. I am so curious to see what our little baby's love language is!
Five // When I was in NY for Fashion Week, I bumped into Jeanette and Chloe from Academy of Art and we instantly connected. I am glad they introduced me to Academy of Art NYFW runway show and the yearly AAU student publication 180. I looooved going through the publication. You can view it online here. I can't wait to head up to Sonoma and sit in the sun and go through it in greater detail. It is so visually stunning.
Six // I think everyone knows I am a makeup addict. I am Sephora Beauty Insider and even have VIB Rouge status because I have earned over 2,000 points from purchases , but I have to laugh because every time I go in there I have little /no make up on and the sales people probably think I've stolen someone's account! The products I am trying this week include: Renewed Hope in a Jar from Philosophy // Boscia Under Eye Treatment // Formula X STRENGTHEN- Nail Strengthener // Benefit They're Real Push-up Liner // Make up Forever Rouge Artist Intense
Seven // I used to listen to Pandora One, then Sound Cloud, then iTunes Radio, and now I am back to Pandora. The main reason I re-downloaded Pandora after swearing it off is because it has the best Glee station. The other music services can't even pretend like they have a good Glee station! So now that I'm back on Pandora I've been listening to Baby Einstein radio with Clementine, Fleetwood Mac Station, and of course Today's Hits. I have to laugh because when I'm listening to Today's Hits I hear all of these commercials for dating services for singles. I can't help but wonder what Pandora thinks my demographic is- single nanny who loves to club? Divorced 70s Fleetwood Mac fangirl? Multiple personalities sharing one account? Not sure.
Eight // Yesterday was the very first day that I actually felt pregnant. Maybe because I was with Clementine or maybe because it's just time, but baby Coco was going crazy!! I am definitely bigger (yes, pretty sure that happened over night read my pregnancy update post from yesterday here) and Coco was kicking like crazy. Maybe she didn't like the attention Clem was getting or maybe she just wanted to come out and play. Stay put, Coco! Just for 91 more days!!! Please!
Nine // ALERT! ALERT! SALE ALERT!! My favorite place to shop for Jesse is having a great sale! Have you checked out East Dane recently? Well, today is the day! They are having their spring sale and the savings are just too perfect to pass up!

Ten // Mark your calendars for a PERFECT PERFORMANCE with San Francisco Ballet on Tuesday, March 10! Sensorium sounds like an amazing evening and I'm not just saying that because I used to work at San Francisco Ballet School! From the Ballet website:
Audiences can purchase a quick drink or light dinner at one of the bars located throughout the Opera House before the performance proper which begins at 8:30pm. Once everyone is seated, the evening will open with a welcome and video installation, “Pull the Dawn from the Night” by artist and host James Buckhouse.
90 minutes of exuberant ballet follow: The Vertiginous Thrill of Exactitude by William Forsythe—a thrilling showcase of precision; Christopher Wheeldon’s ethereal Borealis©, set to the music of Gavin Bryars; and Liam Scarlett’s soaring Hummingbird, set to a score by Philip Glass.
An after party follows the performances. Enjoy no-host bites and beverages as you mingle with SF Ballet dancers on the dance floor—DJ Chris Clouse spins in the basement, or go behind the scenes to find out all about tutus, toe shoes, and makeup & hair at pop-ups located throughout the building, or buy an SF Ballet Look Book and get it autographed by a dancer.
