Fashionable vs Warm Winter Coat.

So I’ve narrowed it down to two possible winter coats.  This is Chicago so a winter coat needs to be taken seriously.

I’m in love with the Nicole Benisti Parka but the specs are nonexistent in comparison to the Canada Goose Trillium Parka.  The Canada Goose is a TEI4 enduring weather up to -15F.

So it’s hard to compare the two for warmth.  Quite an investment but oh that blue and army green is oh soooooo pretty right?

My first Chicago winter so wish me luck! Hopefully I’ll find the right coat soon.

Living in a new city!

Okay so life happens and in my case it was a big move.   I can happily say we are now settled in our new city of Chicago!

What a road trip from San Francisco to Chicago.  I can’t wait to post all the pictures from our road trip adventures.  Antelope Canyon being the highlight.  It’s a must see and we had the most amazing tour guide from Drew Anderson at Adventure Southwest.

It’s currently snowing outside here in Chicago and I am loving living in a snow globe. Although I keep hearing wait until February!


Currently researching winter coats a little late but finding a coat that doesn’t make me look like a marshmellow has not been an easy task.

I am excited about this new adventure and once again looking for sunshine in all things that come my way.

A friend introduced me to the San Francisco Flower Mart just a few months ago. It has now become a regular stop. Strolling through the Flower Mart with a cup of coffee is a perfect dose of sunshine. Another plus easy parking.


Switching it up = sunshine

Okay, what happened to my 3 minute plank?! Maybe it’s all the fun I’ve been having these last few months. Time to focus because I was dying at 30 second planks today and I have less than a month before Cabo (yikes). Best part throwing down the medicine ball as hard as possible(aggression all gone). Jakki has you in constant motion working the entire body. I can’t wait to go back for another round. Trying something new always brings me sunshine (as long as there are no heights involved).

Thanks Presidio Fitness and Tiffany Schade (@JuniorLeagueSF MAC)for organizing this event! #girlpower #sunshine
