summer soirée / sfgirlbybay

one thing i’ve noticed about living in L.A. — friends drop by unexpectedly just because they’re in your hood — and i love that. the city is so big, you’ve got to make the most of your driving time! spontaneous hang outs can sometimes be the best, and i’m one of those people who likes to keep the fridge stocked with light snacks and drinks just in case. but i’ve also noticed that a lot of us are trying to keep our weight down, eat healthier and drink less wine and beer. when the weather’s warm it’s kind of nice to drink chilled sparkling water, rather than wine in the hot sun — and it can be so much more refreshing to simply pull out the S.Pellegrino water. I’m the girl at the restaurant that always orders the bubbles when they ask ‘sparkling or still?’ because it’s just such a nice step up from the plain old water that i’m constantly reminding myself to drink more of. and besides, their bottles look very european to me, so an afternoon summer soiré with fresh fruits and veggies, delicious cheeses, charcuterie, and S.Pellegrino takes me back to places like rome and venice where long, lingering lunches were the de rigueur. bon appétit!

  1. Victoria, I agree. We’re huge SanPe fans in my house (well, my husband IS Italian, maybe that explains it . . . ). Love these images.

  2. Hello! I find this post way too much sponsored… it makes it hard to believe your content, such sentence for example (quote) “but i’ve also noticed that a lot of us are trying to keep our weight down, eat healthier and drink less wine and beer. when the weather’s warm it’s kind of nice to drink chilled sparkling water, rather than wine in the hot sun — and it can be so much more refreshing to simply pull out the S.Pellegrino water.”

    Also it is *soiréE.

    Have a nice evening in California! Bonne soirée! SG

    • I’m sorry you feel that way, Sylvie. But I do appreciate the spelling correction! I drink S.Pellegrino water all the time, and when they asked me to do a sponsored post I agreed, because I like it, and also because we could have fun shooting a pretty tablescape to share with you. I provide free content 5 days a week, 2 times per day, so a sponsored post here and there is how I’m able to do that, and I fully disclose that. This is my career, so sfgirlbybay requires sponsored posts to keep in business. I hope you will consider that and understand. And what I said about making healthier choices were my very own words and 100% true. My friends and I are trying not to drink as much alcohol, so we can lose weight this summer.
