while i was in san francisco a few weeks ago a few friends and i had brunch at plow (thanks for the recommendation aaron!). tiny but beautiful space. definitely recommend it for brunch, and i would recommend going in a smaller group so you don't have to wait as long. i ordered the plow breakfast, jon's fried egg sandwich is pictured below and oh man the fried potatoes are so delicious.
a few months ago i had the pleasure of meeting jonathan lo of j3 productions. he introduced me to this beautiful zine he and his team have created called at your leisure. it's packed with visual inspiration – all styled perfectly. i've loved flipping through all of the past issues and they've just released their final issue: flow. you can order this issue as well as some of the past issues at j3productions.com/zine. hurry as they are only produced in small quantities!
remember a couple weeks ago i posted about 31 bits? i'm excited to share some photos from their newest line for fall. how gorgeous are these? i am currently wearing sunday frill, love the pop of color!
to celebrate their new line – 31 bits was kind enough to offer you a special 20% discount today through october 1st on anything in their shop. enter the code JCHONG20 at check out!
well technically canvas shop is located in seal beach not long beach, but i am in love with this store. i stumbled upon this gem a few weeks ago while i was shopping at the adjacent floral shop. at first the name and surf boards in the front of the store threw me off – but once i was inside i was so thrilled to find so many of my favorite things.
they carry clothes, home goods, magazines, books and more. plus they have an art studio in the back of the shop where they offer drawing classes for both adults and children as well as other awesome events. im so glad i discovered canvas shop, and i know it will be handy during the holidays!

have you heard of mud australia? they just opened a new store in nyc, the store looks amazing and i am pretty sure i need to add every single item to my wishlist. these would make pretty additions to any home, wouldn't you agree?
i spent the weekend in san francisco for a few meetings and events. in between meetings i was fortunate to be able to catch up with a few san francisco friends as well. pictured here are jeanne from shop sweet things and jonathan from happy mundane (who actually lives in los angeles). it was a productive weekend with some amazing folks. this week i am off to vegas for more work meetings – hope you're week is splendid!

last week i mentioned that i was guest curating over on anthropologie's pinterest page. i can't explain how thrilled and excited i was to collaborate with them (i may or may not have done a little dance when it became official!) – they are one of my favorite go-to stores for inspiration. here is a round up of some of my favorite things i've been pinning this month. please be sure to follow the board here.
