Point the Finger: Butter London Polishes

Some people smoke. Others turn to sweets. My version of stress-induced therapy? A mani-pedi. And I’m talking any mani-pedi. Whether it’s a mid-day break at the salon, or a leisurely DIY at-home session, I’m addicted to changing my polish. Although I’ve been hoarding every color under the sun since freshman year of college (yes, there is a difference between Essie’s Mademoiselle pink and Mistique Pink, thank you), I’ve only recently started paying attention to what toxins I might be inhaling each time I paint my digits.

Crepe O Chocolate: Food for Shop

Shopping at Barneys always leaves me full of want, yet unfulfilled. There are so many beautiful things there. So many beautiful things that I can’t afford. (This is not to say that I don’t go back often, like some sort of shopping masochist.)

Junior League of San Francisco’s Fashion Show

On Saturday, April 5 the Junior League of San Francisco held their 82nd Annual Fashion Show Gala at the Fairmont Hotel. The fundraising event, which was co-sponsored by Macy’s, featured two different parties, a champagne luncheon and a black-tie dinner gala, both with a silent and live auction and a breathtaking fashion  show.

Antique Ice Crusher: My New Favorite Toy



If you see something like this, buy it. My friend Lisa found this in some of her old stuff and knew that it was some sort of bar or culinary implement, but she didn't know exactly what it was. I instantly recognized it as an old-fashioned ice crusher and gladly took it in. The thing works wonderfully, in seconds pulverizing dozens of hard cubes into a finely crushed texture. I've seen them in antique stores all over, for cheap.

Doug Washington Talks Anchor & Hope




The dynamic trio behind Salt House and Town Hall (Doug Washington and Mitchell and Steve Rosenthal) are at it again. Their latest venture, Anchor & Hope, is an oyster and fish house with a San Francisco sensibility—it’s opening April 21 (83 Minna St., 415-501-9100). Here, Doug Washington (the front-of-the-house man) dishes on the new spot.

How did you come up with the name?

Anchor and Hope is the name of an old tavern in London that we absolutely love.

Did you try to evoke that pub in any other way?
