Hi there!

Hey, I'm KimikO. Welcome to mY San Francisco life + Style Diary.

Most people know me better as Miko. I'm a Bay Area Native, a plant and dog mom, a bullet journal junkie, and an ENFJ. By day, I'm a woman in tech. By night, you can either find me exploring the city for new spots, or being what my boyfriend likes to call me: "lazy daisy" and indulging in good ol' self care. I guess there really is no in between. 🐨🖤

I'm here to share perfect pairings of my favorite styled looks with all the juicy details of hidden gems in San Francisco: food, fun and shops.

Consider this a local's guide to our very grey city, highlighting it's budding local businesses and brands that deserve your full attention.

The name Kindly, Kimiko was inspired by how I sign my letters and emails. Writing has always been a way for me to connect to others, and this blog does that and more. Thank you for giving me a space to express myself creatively, share my story, and celebrate life with you. I'm so happy you're here. Enjoy!


My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style
