YES TO Day 2

This is day 2 of my trip to San Francisco as the Yes To Stylista! For day 1, click here!

Tuesday morning, my internal mountain-time clock woke me up at about 7:00 am pacific time. I didn't complain a bit! I started my morning off with a crossword (one of my favorite things to do), headed over to Starbucks to write a little post and answer some emails, and then explored the city! I didn't need to be at the Yes To office until close to noon, so I had lots of time to just hang out.

To see the rest of the photos, just click the jump below! There are captions underneath the photos so you get all the details ♥

The awesome lavender staircase in the Clift. All the walls above floor 1 are lavender!
A carousel I found on 4th street.
Made it to the office just in time for pizza lunch!
The entire Yes To team.
At 2:00 pm, the Marketing Team took me to get a blowout at Dry Bar.
My "before" shots!
More "before" : I had my very naturally straight hair done back in a boho braid... but not for long!
My "after" shot! I got the Cosmo-Tai.
My amazing stylist, Robby.
Curly ladies!
A couple "San-Fran-Style" homes in the Fillmore area. I'm in love!
We stopped by Sift for a treat. Sift won Cupcake Wars... and I didn't try a cupcake, but their Snickerdoodle Cookie was to-die-for!
Dinner with the Marketing Team at Out The Door in Fillmore.
We stopped at Buena Vista for Irish coffees.
The Golden Gate Bridge, all lit up at night!

Day 2. What a day. It was packed with fun, beautiful sights, an awesome tour of the city, and lots of memories.

I'm so thankful for this entire Yes To Stylista contest, the chance to hang out with my amazing new Yes To friends, and this once-in-a-lifetime trip.

My advice? Take chances, enter contests, put yourself out there. You never know what may happen! I almost didn't enter the Yes To Stylista contest out of fear of making a video... and now, looking ahead, 2013 is going to be an amazing year because I took that one little chance and just did it. Make this your year of trying something new! Say yes to taking chances!

This looks like so much fun :) because you won, what do you receive now? :) && the houses remind me of Full House! Love that show. Also, your hair is gorgeous curled like that. This might be a dumb question but what's a dry bar?

Raeven said...
