A Major Style Blogger's S.F. Cheat Sheet

Exploring S.F. is one of our favorite pastimes. We're continually impressed by the array of gems that line our curvy streets. But, we'll admit that once we find a favorite establishment or two, we stick to it. We're creatures of comfort, what can we say?

So, to reawaken our inner urban wanderer, we tapped Julia Engel of Gal Meets Glam to help us break old habits and explore some new turf. Julia's blog has exploded over the last few years, but instead of breaking for NYC or L.A., she's stayed firmly planted in the city she loves. Brimming with Bay pride, she uses S.F.'s candy-colored Victorians and murals as her backdrops for photographs and musings.

Ahead, she shares her top spots to grab a heathy bite, sweat it out, and of course, shop. Looking to hit the town? This is THE guide.
