Final touch-ups on the house sale: painting the common area, washing the graffiti off the garage door, sweeping and cleaning all common areas.

Strolled around North Beach. Loved this vintage Philippine Airlines poster that we saw at a map boutique for $275. Went online, found it on eBay, and bought it for $19.

San Francisco Service Recommendations

Since I spent part of my holiday getting primped, I thought I’d do a post on all my favorite services.

 

Hair

I’ve been on the hunt for someone skilled in cutting Asian hair because mine’s so thin and limp. I came across the Japan Center Beauty Clinic in Japan Town which averages 4.5 stars out of a whopping 253 reviews on Yelp. Can’t beat the convenience of a daily operation from 10am – 8pm. I figured I’d take my chances on any stylist, especially with such high reviews. The guy I got was very meticulous; I felt like I was going to be there forever, but he worked on me for exactly one hour and did a perfect job. I love what he did. Ask for Ricky (charges $53) or anyone who’s available.

Japan Center Beauty Clinic

1825 Post St, first floor, suite 160

San Francisco, CA 94115

 

Nails

The best mani/pedi is at Cocoon Urban Day Spa. It’s super expensive, super luxe which is why I’m always on the lookout for a Groupon deal. It’s the best: champagne, chocolate, cookies, crackers, cheese, rose petals in the bath water. Perfect for catching up with a friend and relaxing for 90 minutes.

Facial

I spent $29 for a Groupon facial at ModVellum. I don’t need to spend tons of money for someone to wash my face. I can do that myself. I need a facial for the extractions and ModVellum delivered. Can’t beat this price.

1628 Union St

Optometrist

I’ve never been to an optometrist I didn’t like. They’re all good. They’re all Asian. For a couple years, I went to the optometrist at the SF Costco. He was fine.

 

Dentist

This referral is from Lizzie who got the referral from Sandra. Love the GSB connections. Thanks girls! Best dentist ever.

Handyman

Oscar is your man. He’s 24/7. He does it ALL.

Car

An honest car repair shop. They only work on Asian cars.

Cleaner

I think my cleaner is ok.  Anyone have a good one?

 

I’m sure I forgot a bunch of other people I see. Others that people want to comment on or share? Please do!
