Have a blast while making memories of your trip to San Francisco at the Museum of 3D Illusions. Located in the heart of Fisherman’s Wharf right next to Pier 39 is the Museum of 3D Illusions where hand painted 3D wall murals feature several iconic San Francisco landmarks and hot-spots along with a variety of additional murals that await your poses. Get ready for an incredible experience!!
It was on July 20, 1969 when the first moon landing happened with astronauts Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins on the Apollo 11 and it was the most thrilling time for space exploration in our nations history and the world. I wasn’t born yet, but outer space travel, discovering new planets and galaxies, and that question of are there aliens or Martians and just the fascination of what would it be like one day for humans to live in space have always fascinated me.
As a woman in tech in San Francisco it’s easy to fall into the world of free conference t-shirts and hoodies but I prefer colorful outfits that embrace my personality and I describe my style as classic with a retro twist.
My wardrobe staples are dresses and skirts that nip you in at the waist, cardigans and colorful accessories like vintage purses, shoes and jewelry. I add a brooch to tops and dresses so my cleavage is office appropriate and my outfits are generally very comfortable and effortless so dressing as a curvy women is easy with these wardrobe staples and I am ready for meetings and working with my global team.
Hello from San Francisco!! I get asked a lot what the must do things are in San Francisco so for this post I am keeping it to the top 5 things to do in San Francisco’s Fisherman’s Wharf. First stop is always lunch at In-n-Out Burger right on the Wharf. Hubby and I always get the Double-Double with fries and a drink.
Next stop is the iconic Fisherman’s Wharf sign and it is right in the center surrounded by restaurants, shops, and of course the San Francisco bay with Alcatraz right there in background. I have written another post all about our fun times in the city and you can read more here.
We are taking a day trip into San Francisco today. Hubby and I both needed a little adventure with yummy food and lots of sights to see. I knew we would be doing a good amount of walking but I still wanted my pinup style to shine so I opted for my Cherry Velvet dress that’s a great turquoise blue color with lots of lush red cherries, my red cardigan and pair of Betsey Johnson tennis shoes. I received so many compliments on my dress!!
The drive down from wine country was pretty with lots of sunshine. Even after all these years of driving across the iconic Golden Gate Bridge, I still get a thrill. The day was super clear and there were lots of sailboats in the bay and you could see Alcatraz clearly. We headed up to North Beach, San Francisco’s Little Italy for lunch. We stopped by Calzones, one of our favorite restaurants that has lots of tables and chairs out front and excellent people watching. Hubby ordered the pepperoni pizza made with a sauce of the best San Marzano tomatoes and artisan pepperoni. I ordered the lasagna. Calzone’s makes delicious food and their portions are big. My lasagna was loaded with meat sauce and a perfect amount of filling to pasta ratio, it was absolutely delicious.
After a hearty lunch we stopped next door at Biordi for their amazing hand-painted Italian pottery. The vast amount of styles and colors the majolica comes in is breathtaking. From dish sets and place settings, to vases, urns and tables and more, there is so much to look at and take in. Biorid’s is a must for anyone that loves Italian pottery.
I wanted to share some pics with you all from my weekend in wine country. We are so fortunate to live in beautiful wine country California and have really great weather pretty much all year. This past weekend was so lovely, sunny, and cool with a little wind. Hubby and I headed to the quaint towns of Windsor and Healdsburg about 70 miles North of San Francisco.
I had a completely different outfit planned for this excursion but it didn’t work out well for my curves…. we will save that story for another time and another curvy blog post. I had seen this polka dot top in a magazine and being the lover of polka dots that I am, I had to have it. I was so happy to see the blouse come in plus size as it would need to fit my curves and it is a wrap top so I knew it would fit my bust and I was not disappointed when it arrived. The blouse had such a luxurious feel to it and it was made really well. Usually plus size curvy clothing from department stores are not all that well made and do not usually have a shape so I was pleasantly surprised what fast fashion from Macy’s delivered.
