This past weekend, I went up to Oakland for the day with my girls. Our first stop was Temescal Alley. It’s so small you’ll almost miss it, but definitely worth strolling through. In this little alley way, you’ll find a handful of unique, local artisan shops – a cafe and the Temescal Alley Barber Shop. Who knew Oakland had so much character?! 15 minutes later, I walked out with a small indoor plant for my bookshelves and some sweet dreams tea.
