Fun, Food & Drinks in San Francisco: The Kabuki Theater & Humphry Slocombe Ice-Cream

  I finally made it to the Kabuki Theater in Japantown! I always end up going to the Metreon in SoMa as it’s close to my place and it’s always a good experience, but the Kabuki brings something special to the table that the Metreon does not.

Chocolate Fondant Recipe with Optional Raspberries

  This chocolate fondant recipe is unbelievably easy and will assuredly blow your mind. Adapted from a French website, it is originally referred to as ‘Mother Anne’s Giant Truffle’.

Selfies & Instanimals: The Accounts You Should Actually Follow

Social media may represent a big part of my job and life (cough cough huge part cough), but I have to say… some days as I scroll through feeds, especially on Instagram, I can’t help but feel irritation and sorrow… I genuinely find it painful to see the mind-boggling effects it has had on youth, society, people, self-worth, body image… etc. Between selfies of people at … Continue reading Selfies & Instanimals: The Accounts You Should Actually Follow
