SF Vacay

Hi from one of my favorite cities: San Francisco 🙂

Lombard  1 of 1

(The famous windy Lombard street. The hills here are insane! Props to all the SF runners out there)

I was invited along with some blogging friends for a Stitch Fix and LUNA vacay, including visits to the Stitch Fix headquarters, the warehouse (aka The Hizzy) and some fun surprise adventures.

Headquarters  1 of 1

If you haven’t heard of Stitch Fix, check out my intro post here! I’ve been getting fixes for almost two years now and it’s been amazing to watch the company grow exponentially in such a short amount of time. I was able to check out the headquarters over the holiday season, and just like last time, they’re taking amazing care of us. The definitely know how to wine, dine, and gift a girl 😉 (I almost said “swag a girl” but no. That just sounds… weird.)

We’re staying in a beautiful historic house

and arrived to find it stashed with healthy snacks, wine,

The morning’s events started off bright and early with a beautiful outdoor yoga class, led by Yogi Sadie. We did an invigorating practice, which emphasized posture and alignment in the poses. She gave us some valuable tips for our warrior postures, and I felt like in a short amount of time, I learned valuable tips that I can use from now on. Even though it’s been a little chilly, the sun beat down on us during savasana, and it was glorious.

Next was a visit to check out the headquarters.

I always feel like this would be such an amazing place to work. The environment is fun and laid-back, with lots of cool touches, like the “best of” Stitch Fix feedback quotes framed around the facility:

We also got the chance to see the current bestsellers, including the jewelry client faves.

(A little tip we learned: if you have a Stitch Fix account, be sure to link to your Pinterest style board. This way the stylist can see samples of things you like and can base your fix off things you pin.)

Lunch was from Heyday and enjoyed outside in picnic-style in the park.

A variety of salads:

This afternoon, we had a scavenger hunt focused on some of San Francisco’s famous sights.

You can check out out scavenger hunt pics on Instagram (#stitchfixlunavacay) with my teammates Julie and Nicole. I’m pretty sure we won. 😉

The best part was the Irish coffee at the Buena Vista when we were finished! If anyone knows how to recreate these, please let me know.

Hope you’re all having a wonderful week <3

See you soon with some more adventures 🙂

    What an awesome company and vacation! My British friend always gets an Irish coffee after lunch. She says it “warms the cockles of the heart”. I love her 🙂 haha

    • Fitnessista on June 12, 2014 at 11:30 am

      hahah i love that!

  8. Tara | Treble in the Kitchen on June 12, 2014 at 8:31 am

    This looks so fun! Can’t wait to read more about your trip 🙂

  9. Maggie on June 12, 2014 at 9:03 am

    I DO know how to make Irish coffees a la Buena Vista! You take your coffee mug and put in two sugar cubes and then you pour your coffee over. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Then you add your shot of Irish whiskey and top with heavy cream, lightly whipped. I think they add the whipped cream by pouring it over a spoon first. Anyways, that’s at least how my folks were taught to make it and they were Buena Vista regulars. 🙂

    • Fitnessista on June 12, 2014 at 11:30 am

      you are an angel. 🙂

    • Jaime M on June 13, 2014 at 10:23 am

      Awesome! I love those!

  15. Ashley @ A Lady Goes West on June 12, 2014 at 10:32 am

    Hi Gina! I live here in San Francisco and love that you guys are here seeing the beautiful city. StitchFix is awesome, I haven’t signed up yet, but have been thinking about it.

    Have you had a chance to visit the Ferry Building? There’s an awesome Farmer’s Market there a few days a week. Enjoy the rest of your trip. You’re lucky, because we’re having warmer weather these days. 🙂

    • Fitnessista on June 12, 2014 at 11:29 am

      no, but i love the ferry building! i hope i get to see it before we go 🙂

      • Ashley @ A Lady Goes West on June 12, 2014 at 11:33 am

        Are you here on Saturday morning? If so, I’d love you to come to my BODYATTACK class in the city. It’s at 10 a.m.! Let me know 🙂

  16. Sam on June 12, 2014 at 10:36 am

  21. Tracy on June 12, 2014 at 12:07 pm

    Ha, Gina! “swag a girl” – you are TOO funny!! This looks amazeballs and I’m so glad you are there, live it up! A gal’s dream.

  24. Jacki on June 12, 2014 at 12:38 pm

    I’d like to know if my StitchFix feedback quote is up on the wall – “This dress makes me look like a Republican politician’s wife.” 🙂

  25. Danielle on June 12, 2014 at 12:55 pm

    Gina! I love love love your blog. I’m starting my own and was wondering if you could offer any tips on how you got started and built up your blog. Thanks again, the trip looks amazinggg!

  26. Julie on June 12, 2014 at 1:18 pm

    Have a great time! SF is my fave city, too. So jealous!

  27. Jay on June 12, 2014 at 1:57 pm

    My favorite city. Enjoy!

  28. Theresa on June 12, 2014 at 2:48 pm

    How fun!! I am so envious of your trip and hanging out with some of my other favorite bloggers! You girls deserve to be pampered! I hope you’re having the best time in our city 🙂 I did a post on how to make those Irish Coffee’s from the Buena Vista if you want to check it out! xo

  29. Laura B @ FitMamaLove on June 12, 2014 at 3:07 pm

    Looks like so much fun! I think I’d be intimidated about going to something like this because I’d want to make sure all the outfits I brought with me were perfect. 🙂

  30. Cassie on June 12, 2014 at 6:40 pm

    Glad you’re loving SF!

  31. Stephanie O on June 12, 2014 at 8:44 pm

    Looks like so much fun! Where are your black flats from? They’re adorable!

    • Fitnessista on June 13, 2014 at 2:27 am

      thank you! they’re from white plum 🙂

  32. Tia on June 12, 2014 at 11:06 pm

    I tried Stitchfix once last spring and they sent me the strangest stuff when I requested “business casual” items for the office. I got a terry cloth blazer, a bright green bracelet with anchors on it, a black sweater with see through sleeves, an army green very loose bohemian top, and a zebra striped skirt. It was so random. Haha, maybe I need to be more specific.

    • Fitnessista on June 13, 2014 at 2:26 am

      leave very thorough feedback, too! they read everything 🙂

  33. Becca on June 13, 2014 at 10:54 am

    I just went to SF for the first time last month and was blown away by how beautiful it is! I ran the two days that I was there and thought the same as you– the runners there must be really in shape!!

    It looks like you had a great time!

  34. Jess on June 13, 2014 at 1:00 pm

    I love the concept. Wish they shipped to Canada!! 🙁

  35. Nicole @ Pumps & Iron on June 13, 2014 at 3:03 pm

    Pffff such BS we didn’t win the scavenger hunt. I think we should have gotten bonus points for each minute we were late. 🙂

  36. Cristina L. on June 14, 2014 at 5:01 pm

    This trip sounds amazing. I just moved from the SF area to North Carolina about a year ago and I miss it so much! Hope you loved it as much as I do 🙂
