Pregnant and Pampered

Posted by Megan Brandt on Mon, May 19, 2014 @ 08:48 AM

pregnant and pampered san franciscoYou're sporting a gorgeous pregnancy glow and a beautiful baby bump, so why not give yourself the pampering you deserve? After all, we know that carving out "me" time will be harder to do after the little one arrives. Whether you're a local or just visiting, San Francisco offers plenty of relaxing things to do. Here's a list of 5 that we think will leave you feeling pampered! 

1. Have a picnic at the Palace of Fine Arts, Yerba Buena Gardens or Washington Square Park. (On Sunday's check out Off the Grid: Picnic at the Presidio - food truck heaven).

2. Rent a rowboat at Stow Lake in Golden Gate Park (make sure to bring someone with upper arm strength).

3. Enjoy afternoon tea at The Rotunda at Neiman Marcus.

4. Get your make-up done. We love Benefit, Bobby Brown (Kimberly at Neiman Marcus is awesome) and Mac's new Powell Street flagship store.

5. Book the Pregnant & Pampered SF Hotel Package at Personality Hotels. We'll keep you comfortable and happy with a Ghirardelli sundae, spa treatment coupon, sparkling cider, a body pillow, Tums, and much more!

San Francisco Packing Tips

Posted by Megan Brandt on Thu, Jan 09, 2014 @ 10:07 AM

Packing anxiety is a thing, it's a real problem, right? You're so excited for your trip to SF and want to look absolutely fabulous the entire time - then, suddenly you feel completely overwhelmed. Sound familiar? Well don't worry, we're here to coach you through this...

Let's get one thing clear first. San Francisco weather is highly unpredictable, no matter what season it is. Even the different districts and neighborhoods have their own microclimates. In just 7 miles, from one end of the city to the other, San Francisco can surprise you with thick fog, patches of sun, wind tunnels, and possible areas of rain. 

So, for winter, we have a few tips to ease your packing anxiety. (Chances are these tips will be appropriate no matter when you visit, thanks to SF's ever-changing conditions).

  •  Layers are key - both lightweight and heavier layers: t-shirts, warm sweaters, leggings, scarves, hoodies, maybe even gloves. The point is to bring anything that is easy to remove if the sun peeks out and it suddenly becomes warm, but easy to carry and put back on when the clouds roll in.

  • A warm coat, especially for walking around the city.

  • Comfy closed toed shoes. (No flip flops - save those for September/October)

We are a fairly casual city. Remember to choose comfort first, then add layers. For example...
