7 Bridges, Diner/Drive-In/Dive, and a Nap

San Diego 7 Bridges Walk

A lovely way to see some of the San Diego neighborhoods is to walk the 7 Bridges Urban Walk – passing the Zoo, Balboa Park,  the LGBT+ community, etc. dievca’s watch logged 5.68 miles.  With a short drive to Hob Knob Hill for brunch, the restaurant was featured on Diner, Drive-In and Dives with Guy Fieri. dievca just had a normal breakfast (eggs, bacon, waffle) and it was a like a normal diner in NYC.

Afterward, dievca passed out on the Coronado Beach for two hours – sunscreen was applied!


A West Coast Brand of Cool – XiRENA

Our founder and creative director Dierdre Roffoni is a California native with an insatiable sense of wanderlust. It was on a trip to Formentera, Spain that she was inspired to create XÍRENA (pronounced SUH-REN-UH).

While every season features something new, XÍRENA is timeless, effortless, and to those in the know, easily recognizable by the iconic red bar tack.

The brand will continue to evolve, but the promise is always the same: we choose the softest fabrics in the most comfortable shapes.

We are Designed in LA and Made to Live In.


Coffee before the drive

Good Morning! Maybe a little late for the East Coast. XO
A little coffee before driving inland for phase two.
Enjoy your week!

dievca finally got her Disney-style Dole Whip!


June Gloom… (and what is really happening)

June Gloom is a Southern California term for a weather pattern that results in cloudy, overcast skies with cool temperatures during the late spring and early summer. … On a strong June Gloom day, the clouds and fog may extend inland to the valleys and Inland Empire and may persist into the mid-afternoon or evening.

Go figure~ this is the time dievca can take a quick jaunt to visit friends in CA. she wanted to park it on the beach….but she’s been told it isn’t the best time.

This is quite annoying since the weather in NYC has been heavily gloomy, too. With dievca’s luck, NYC weather will be gorgeous and CA a mess.  Ah, well. At least she is out of the City.

HAH! dievca’s plane arrived 45 minutes early,
her luggage was the first off the plane
and the WEATHER IS AWESOME!
