my fav birthday present from colette prime!

{ the most insane carrot hummus at Greens SF }

We are back in the city {though my instagram feed will show otherwise for a bit!} & back to the SF grind. Today, we had a belated birthday brunch with our close friends, Colette {who runs the raddest of the raddest blog} & her boyfriend, Alex at Green’s in the Marina.

I canNOT reccomend Greens enough. It’s a vegetarian restaurant in Fort Mason with the best views of SF. It’s so good, you won’t even miss the meat. Erik & I shared pupusas & a grilled cheese but I also LOVE their green garlic asparagus pizza. Fun fact: Steve Jobs used to frequent it.

I know I rave about Colette all the time but she’s seriously the best. I seriously love hanging with her & Alex. She’s such a gem & one of the gifts she gave me, I HAVE to share here. I loved it and it’s a super easy thing to give!

She also brought her instax! They brought it with the intention to take polaroids of us for me to keep.

It’s one of those “free” gifts that mean so much & a fun way to capture the moment. I love the idea of capturing fun moments {phone free} to always have on hand.

Kind of like an off-line instagram? Anyways, I dug it in a major way & it’s a fun “party favour” to take home to remember our time together. BIG FAN of party favours, it’s one of my fav entertaining tips!

Also, I totally forgot to take a photo of my outfit so I had Erik take a quick shot when we got home! Happy Sunday <3
