{One last jump for good measure!}

Hello, Lovelies! I’ve just returned from a few beautiful days in the sun on the Island of Jamaica. What a beautiful place!! It was a fun Girl’s trip, filled with lots of R&R, time spent in the sun and floating in the ocean…cocktails, too much food & laughter. I brought along this flowy maxi dress from Atelier Azza – one of Chicago’s most amazing designers. It provided to be a perfect dress for a little sunset beach stroll. I hope I can return to this Island and its relaxed vibe & sweet people again soon!

Miss Renaissance Chocolate hazelnut Tart

{Today, after driving into San Francisco, my first stop was at Tartine Bakery. This INCREDIBLE chocolate & hazelnut tart was absolute heaven…perfectly deep, rich chocolate and crunchy roasted hazelnuts on top. Gimme, gimme!}

I hope you all have a fun and sunny weekend ahead of you! I’ll be spending the next few days exploring San Francisco (i.e. eating, eating, shopping, taking pictures, more eating, shopping….you get the idea!)
