About Author

This summer, the one thing I absolutely, positively cannot live without is...
"This season, I’ve been downright obsessed with anything that has a palm tree, pineapple, or flamingo on it. They all scream summer fun to me, and in this fog-filled S.F. weather, seeing them is like an instant dose of Vitamin D. So, obviously this super-cute cell phone case is on my shopping list!"

Current food obsession...
“Not to sound like a total alchie, but ever since Jasper’s Kevin Diedrich showed us how to whip up spicy cocktails, drinks with a bite have been all I want to sip down these days. I’m especially partial to the Rodriguez Sour.”

Next up on my Netflix is...
"I just finished the new episodes of Arrested Development that had me rolling, which is a pretty tough act to follow! A friend of mine recommended Cabin in The Woods so I’m working up the nerve to watch all that gore.”

Latest guilty pleasure…
“For being a total California girl, my tongue goes wagging for southern comfort dishes all the time. My guiltiest of pleasures is fried pickles, and the Mission’s South Paw whips up a batch of smoky cornmeal pickle chips that I could crunch and munch on all day.”

The one song I can listen to over and over...and over to is...
"Down by The Water by The Drums."

My must-have cheap thrill...
"I’d rather go naked than not wear L’Oréal Paris’ Lineur Intense Felt Tip Liquid Eyeliner. It glides on so easily!"
