I have a huge HUGE announcement friends! For the next six months, I’m going to be working with Macy’s as a Macy’s ambassador! It all started with me hosting a cooking demo at Macy’s Union Square last year. I had so much fun with that event that we decided to make things official!
I can’t even tell you how excited I am. One of the most important parts of this collaboration is to share the fun events going on at my local Macy’s’ Union Square in San Francisco. Talk about a dream job? I’ll even be hosting a few events too! I also hope this will give me the chance to meet many of you who are based in the Bay Area in real life.

Looking for the best views of Golden Gate Bridge? Slacker Hill in the Marin Headlands has stunning aerial views of the bridge and the San Francisco skyline!
It’s hard to plan a trip to San Francisco without a visit to admire the Golden Gate Bridge. I live here, and the bridge still takes my breath away when we drive over it. Some of the best views of the bridge are from the opposite side of bridge in the Marin Headlands. You get not only the view of the bridge, but also of the San Francisco skyline. Most of the stops along the coast are packed with tourists. The road often gets backed up with people looking for parking spots.
Did you know if you drive just a bit further up there’s a secret spot that boasts the best views of the bridge? You can stare down at all the cars crammed along the viewpoints dotting Conzelman Road and feel smug about this secret spot that is off the beaten path. High up on Slacker Hill, you’ll get the best aerial views of the Golden Gate Bridge aside from renting a helicopter. You’ll also be spared sharing the view with a dozen selfie sticks and the noise of the road and all the other tourists.
You’ll be rewarded with these views:
