Retail Therapy for Luxury Shoppers at Stonestown Galleria, San Francisco

Yesterday was a Saturday and it included some retail therapy at the closest mall on the West side of our City. Although San Francisco Real Estate requires a real devotion of time and energy,  I got lucky and took a moment to “get a little early holiday shopping in”.

Convenient to West Portal, St. Francis Woods, Lake Merced, The Sunset, Forest Knolls and Twin Peaks.  Stonestown Galleria Shopping Mall is located on 19th Avenue near UCSF and the entrance to the 280 FWY. Besides the traditional shops like Macy’

s, Victoria’s Secret, Williams-Sonoma, L’Occitane, Godiva Chocolate, See’s Candies and more, there are several restaurants outside of the food court, Chevy’s and Olive Garden (both great for kids). The food court has wonderful choices, its’ true, like Sushi, a juice bar and so forth.  Trader Joes is located in front of Nordstrom with street access and plenty of parking too. Continue reading

Jurlique – Natural Beauty


I ventured into the Jurlique store today on Fillmore in San Francisco. Years ago I was in the beauty business and I spent many hours getting ‘Jurlique’ facials. What you may not know is that it is an organic, alternative skincare brand and line that’s been around for over 20 years. I particularly remember the natural elements in the creams, they smelled so good, you felt like you could eat them, and they had texture too, like oatmeal in one of the face washes. Now, I don’t know if this is a contributing factor, but people tell me I look young all the time, and often I wonder if it’s from those lovely facials I received for so many consecutive years back then.

Any hoo – these days, I make sure to use up every little bit of cream and product I have before re-investing in another…waste not want not (I am my mother).  I am so excited to have found Jurlique again and to know that they tend the earth on their certified organic and bio dynamic farms, by growing the herbs and flowers used in their products. I’ll definitely head in there to purchase the regimen that’s right for my skin and feel darn good about it, knowing that I’m supporting a truly organic organization. Also, they give free mini facials, though you have to call to schedule. The San Francisco store is at 2136 Fillmore St., PH: 415-346-7881. Jurlique is hot, you’ve got to smell it and try it to believe it…this is a vital and vibrant product line, that’s been around for a while and has worked out all the wrinkles “Get it?”, kinda like me…  www.Jurlique.com
