Last year San Francisco interior designers Tyler Dawson and Caitlin Moran teamed up to open a hip design shop called Found. Located on San Francisco's popular Union Street, Found offers a well-edited selection of one-of-a-kind vintage pieces that have been updated and reinvented by the stylish duo. Dawson and Moran chronicle their "finds" and other design musings on their blog which I highly recommend checking out by clicking here. And below are some of their recent finds that I think are fabulous!
I'm a big foodie. I'm a passionate cook and I also enjoy dining out so when I learned that my friend Noria Morales (who also happens to be a fashion editor at Lucky Magazine) started a food blog, I knew I'd love it instantly. At First Bite is a must-read blog that celebrates food and chronicles Noria's frequent excursions to some of the most fabulous restaurants in New York City and beyond. From hole in the wall taco joints to top-rated fine dining establishments, Noria will keep you in the loop on what places you should be checking out and why. Whenever I'm stumped on where to go for dinner or drinks, I visit AFB's regularly updated Eat/Drink Here page which features her well-edited list of bar and restaurant recommendations. The blog is also filled with enticing food photos that are sure to make your
mouth water. (I swear, every time I read her blog I get hungry!) You can visit At First Bite by clicking here and below is a sample of some of the tempting photos you'll find while there. Hungry yet?

I'm happy to introduce a new weekly feature here on So Haute: Weekend Bloglovin'. Each weekend I'll be highlighting some of my favorite home-related blogs around the web. This week I bring you Good Bones, Great Pieces, a stylish blog by mother-daughter duo Suzanne and Lauren McGrath. Suzanne is an interior designer and Emmy-award winning former style editor and television producer for Martha Stewart Living Television. Lauren is an editorial assistant at Teen Vogue. A relatively new blog on the scene, Good Bones, Great Pieces takes a fresh approach to style, offering readers everything from Suzanne's DIY decorating tips to Lauren's roundups of her favorite fashion finds. I especially love reading about their weekend excursions to antiques fairs, flea markets and consignment stores all around the New York tri-state area. Suzanne and Lauren are super cute and reading their blog makes me wish my mom lived closer! (She's in Michigan, I'm in New York.) You can check out Good Bones, Great Pieces by clicking here. Happy reading!
