I am currently sitting in my office having a dance party while listening to my latest playlist. Why?
Because it’s Friday and I have a staycation planned this weekend! It’s such a treat to get away
with my husband for the night (but just down the street)... in downtown Sacramento. Sacramento has
really grown on me over the past couple of years since moving here from New York. It has the perks
of a city but with that small town charm and down-to-earth Northern California community that I love.
Fragrance Combining™: I’m wearing
Rose is my all-time favorite scent but I’m
loving this fresh and flirty combination with
Wild Bluebell Cologne for spring. My complete
routine consists of: Red Roses Bath Oil in the
shower. Wood Sage & Sea Salt Body Crème,
layered with the Red Roses Cologne and
Diffusers around our house and the candles
burning constantly. (A spritz of Red Roses
Room Spray is my number one party trick.)
My top five tips for things to do in Sacramento:
1. Midtown Farmers Market
On Saturday morning I like to pick up an almond milk latte at The Mill beforehand and walk over for fresh produce, eggs, and of course, flowers.
Bring a group of friends to share plates at Canon, our newest hot spot in East Sacramento (my neighborhood) that has become my go-to. Order the yellowtail crudo and ribs to start.
Pack running shoes. We have some great trails along the river, or drive a little way out to Auburn for more hiking. My favorite way to spend Sunday afternoons as a family is a picnic or walk along the American River Trail. Now that my 15 month old son is on the move it’s more of an afternoon spent chasing him down the trails rather than a relaxing picnic.
4. Oak Park
Oak Park is one of my favorite neighborhoods to walk around. I like to grab tacos at La Venadita, pop into a few boutiques, coffee at Old Soul, and pick up a new plant (to try to keep alive) from The Plant Foundry.
5. Kechmara Designs
My friend Ali sources the best selection (incredible colors) of Moroccan rugs from his travels and we’re lucky to have his shop, Kechmara Designs, here in Sacramento. While in the WAL Artist Lofts on R Street, grab a cup of coffee at the adorable new Camellia Coffee and browse the vintage selection.
