Park(ING) Day 2014 in downtown San Francisco. A little foot tour around my work neighborhood and south.

Park(ING) Day, originally dreamed up by local designers at REBAR, is not a DIY replicable event in cities across the globe.

Temporary pop-up installations repurposing public space (for the same time and cost as it takes to store a unused car there!).

Enjoyed finding fun textures and shapes to take photos of in a place I generally underappreciate - downtown SF. Like many cities developed in the past 70 or so years, its just so concreted in and depressing, with shady canyon streets and little visual appeal or greenery. Here are some of the tiny details that make it more appealling!

SOMEBODY’S a little codependent. And yes its the “buddy” model. Imagine them going to work together.  #sf #lunchwalk

DIY: Coconut-Lime Sea Salt Lip Scrub

Lips chapped after a long summer of beaches, sea, sun, sand, and wind? I know mine are after this past weekend hiking at altitude and camping in the desert! Try this recipe for an all natural (edible!) lip scrub that also moisturizes. Read my latest DIY on Inhabitat.
