The Champagne Edit :: New & Improved! {+ some London snaps!}

{ the sunglasses I wish I bought – really into the Matrix & Men in Black aesthetic rn}

{ officially broke from vintage shopping in shoreditch }

It has been quite of the while since I’ve done a Champagne Edit!!

With all the new changes here with the blog & everything, I figured I’d jazz it up a bit.

Every Friday, I’ll continue to post these but they’ll be a bit more personal with some snapshots throughout the week. I’ll keep the champagne links at the bottom of the post on things I am digging.

I’m constantly snapping pics through my days & so many of it just doesn’t end up here or on my channels: facebook, instagram, anywhere SO this will be where you can find some highlights from my week.

It’s kind of a fun, personal look into my iphone & just chatting here and catching up with you guys ๐Ÿ™‚

We got back from London early this week & it’s been my first week in SF not at the office. I’ll def admit, it’s a weird feeling. I’m still taking some time off but a lot of it has really been gauging my days and what calendar makes sense.

Basically, I’m about to completely timeblock my calendar so my days are fully planned. Anyone have any tips for managing your day?

{ a very special hotel in London & where we stay every single time <3 }

ALSO on another note:ย San Francisco has been so weird weather-wise ALL week. I’m talking rain / sleet / wind / hot / cold / cloudy / sunny every single day.

I feel like I have to enjoy it though because once it’s over, it’s done until next year since it hardly rains here.

Anyways, low key weekend planned here. I’m in the middle of spring cleaning & Erik will be golfing. We are off to my favourite place on Earth next week so basically relaxing as much as we can.

I am planning on vlogging while I am there and it will be my first go at it! If you have any blogging tips or equipment needed – let me know.

On another note, anything you ever want to see in a vlog, just holla. would love to know!

On that note, I’m out – what are you doing this weekend?

what I’m digging

Easy Smoky Chili by Annie Garcia :: y’all know I love Annie – her food blog is a staple of mine and I love her approach to cooking. With the rainy / sleety weather {let alone, for a few hours of the day lol}, I’ve been craving this. Easily one of the best chili recipes I’ve read! ps – check the archives for my bacon bourbon chili… I’m thinking I need to update this one for a revamp!


Bloodhound by Goop :: if you know me, one of my all time favourite cocktails is a greyhound. I can drink them like water & they make me kind of nostalgic because when I first moved to SF, our favourite neighborhood bar would make them by putting a grapefruit through a handpress & adding vodka. This has a super fun touch that lends the name Bloodhound. Will def be making!!


The Playboy Interview: Stephen Hawkingย :: this interview from 1980 with Stephen Hawking is a must read. He changed the world with his brilliant mind. RIP.


FILA Disruptor II shoes :: I just bought these sick kicks and they are perfect for next week’s travels – I love the sole of them, they remind me of Sonic the Hedgehog LOL.


Touch Sensitive – Veronica :: Touch Sensitive has the most chill vibe – one of my favourites, not to mention I’m obsessed w his aesthetic. This jam is a lovely blend of 90’s, nu-disco, & house. check it out! I also love Pizza Guy too.






  • that Monday feeling... even tho I spent all day yesterday thinking it was Monday? Hopefully itโ€™s not the theme of this {extremely cray} week! ๐ŸŒŸ #mondayvibes #pineappleexpress #slsootd
  • another Sunday, another puzzle ๐Ÿ•ต๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ•ต๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ #momentswithsunday
  • Did anyone else have a full week of Mondays or was it just me?! Either way, Iโ€™m cheersing HARD to the weekend ๐Ÿ”†  #tgiff
  • After trying all of the natural @skylar fragrances, I settled with CAPRI - sparkling, sweet citrus โœจ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‹๐ŸŒŸ it was a scent that made me instantly happy and transported me to the Mediterranean, beachside, in a belted swimsuit, cat eye sunnies, & a huge hat with a limoncello spritz in hand. ๐Ÿฅ‚ Instant good vibes and I love how it fades to an irresistibly sweet finish on me. Iโ€™ve been layering it with Isle from the sampler pack below and some coconut-vanilla body lotions! I love that they are non-toxic, cruelty fre, & hypoallergenic. Use the code SCENTS10 for 10% off {& be sure to get the sampler pack so you can try them all - the cost of the $20 pack will be applied to the full size}! ๐Ÿ‹ ๐ŸŒŸ #ad #skylarbody #ambskyfull #ambcollab #madeinla
  • my lil urban jungle cat ๐Ÿ’– Last night, @erikschuchard brought home a TON of plants: we now have succulents galore, some small trees, cacti, ferns, & my fave: palms & lots of them ๐ŸŒด now I have to find some chic planters and have no idea where to begin. Any ideas?! #blackcatsofinstagram #ihavethisthingwithplants #cornerofmyhome
  • Tennis, anyone? ๐ŸŽพ skipped the gym today and hit the tennis courts with @erikschuchard instead! โœจ #lovelove #mysf #slsfit
  • Good scents come naturally and Iโ€™m loving @skylar lately. ๐Ÿƒ Itโ€™s a non-toxic, hand crafted perfume from LA. I love that they are all natural and cruelty free not to mention hypoallergenic & both paraben / phthalate free.
Letโ€™s talk the scents - can you guess which full sized one I chose?:
CAPRI: sparkly citrus with notes of musk, dewy rose, & neroli
ARROW: seductive night jasmine with warm vanilla, & patchouli
CORAL: flirty & fruity with grapefruit with apple blossom
ISLE: clean and refreshing with bergamot, sandalwood, & cardamom
MEADOW: elegant and feminine with tuberose & orange blossom.
they are so pretty on their own but they layer very well together. I personally am loving mixing Arrow with Meadow and Capri with Isle.
Whatโ€™s really rad is that you can try all of their 5 scents in the comfort of your home before you commit to a full size! This set is $20 but when you decide which one you want, that $20 goes into the full sized perfume. ~*but wait thereโ€™s more*~ you can use the promo code SCENTS10 for a 10% discount!
OK SO- which are you?: spicy, fruity, clean, floral, or sparkly?! โœจ
