Diane: Direct Vlog
In my latest vlog episode, join me (and Scott and our fur-kids!) for a typical Friday “date day” around San Francisco. Fridays are great mix of routine things, like going to the gym and making breakfast, and special fun things, like having a lunch date with my husband.
In this episode, we head to one of our favorite restaurants, Blue Barn, and even stop by Trader Joe's for some groceries, before settling in for a relaxed evening with #TheDailyMason and #HarperMills.
Lots of you asked to see a typical day in this vlog series, so hopefully you enjoy this one! (Trust me, a typical Monday isn't as much fun to watch – it's a lot of calls and meetings!)

CHOP CHOP. // Took off about 3-4″ and that's as short as I'm willing to go right now. Got a root touch up as well because 39, but this balyage is from months ago. . Also, IMHO balayage is the best thing to happen to hair color ever bc omg maintaining foiled highlights used to suck. . For fresh cuts and color in SF, see @whitneywarfield. She'll make it nice. . The curling iron I use to style my hair is linked from my LinkTree in my bio (also anytime via my Favorites page on the blog). It is *not* cheap, but it's given me the hair I always wanted, which is priceless to me.🤣 . #newhairselfie #obligatory #RHONYref #balayage #freshcut Brows Microbladed by @browistry Lashes by @backstageglamourstudios #ittakesavillage
PERSPECTIVE // I don't always bake scones, but when I do, it's because I was trying to bake cookies. . Seriously, I am such a BAD baker. I was attempting cookies last night with @bobsredmill 1 to 1 #glutenfree flour last night, but it's really more of a blend to use for biscuits and pancakes I think. . Then I realized that the cookies actually turned out tasting more like scones. So I made scones with the rest of the dough and I felt like I was much more successful. . I really think the key to a happy life is all in the way you look at things – and how you respond and adapt when your cookies turn out like scones. Obviously just rolling with it and making scones is a better solution than sulking over your sucky cookies. 🤣 . More on this in my IG story. Always. . #notpaleo #dianedirect #awhoneyyoubaked #scones #chocolatechunks @theochocolate @tinstarfoods #entrepreneurialinsightsonbaking
THIS GUY (@fullbodyfix) // He's my best friend and my partner in life. We work together and we play together. We spend nearly 24/7 together save for his in-office hours with patients 3 days a week. He patiently edits the @balancedbitespodcast every single week. He's just the best and he's my favorite. ❤️ #husband #mcm #docandflips #myguy #sanfrancisco #qualitytime
