IfOnly, Extraordinary Experiences for Good

Established in the heart of San Francisco, CA IfOnly continues to prove why they are one of the best destinations, for only the best experiences. IfOnly not only works with global industry leaders, they search the planet for only the best memory breeding experiences.


And if that isn't priceless enough, IfOnly believes in seizing the moment, rather than living day-to-day. IfOnly infuses an inspiration into every experience. Every item and/or experience goes towards helping various charities and causes. And every luminary's proceeds go towards a different charity. For instance; Joseph Gordon-Levitt's proceeds go towards Stand Up 2 Cancer whereas; Miley Cyrus's proceeds go towards the Ronald McDonald House.

Individual luminaries (or individuals who inspire) range from celebrities to people like you and me. Some of them include: Miley Cyrus, One Direction, Mike Tyson, Bruno Mars, Kobe Bryant, Shakira, Fall Out Boy, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Chris Cornell, Demi Lovato, Joe Montana, Justin Bieber, Amitabh Bachchan, Michael Chiarello, Tyler Florence, Brian Boitano, Dan Jansen, Salman Khan, Justin Tuck, Summer Sanders, Andrea Agassi, Ray Lewis, Jerry Rice, Stefanie Graf, Bonnie Blair, Greg Norman, Rajat Parr, and much more.

Don't miss out on this year's
Meet Demi Lovato with
VIP Jingle Ball Package which
will benefit the Ryan Seacrest
Foundation.
With experiences such as Pasta Making Class + Dinner for 2 with luminary Thomas McNaughton to a meet-n-greet with luminary Kobe Bryant to the Greenmarket Tour with luminary April Bloomfield to a VIP experience with luminary Mike Tyson to a meet-n-greet with luminary Justin Bieber to a recipe showcase with luminary Tyler Florence to a 1 hour figure skating instruction with luminary Brian Boitano to a weekend tennis getaway with luminary Andre Agassi to a private workout on the hill with luminary Jerry Rice, and more; you can make someone's life brighter with just the click of a mouse.

IfOnly also offers last minute gifts that range from personalized gifts from your favorite luminary to individual gift sets put together by your favorite luminary to signed memorabilia that is actually owned (or was once owned) by your favorite luminary, and much more.

And when you become a member, you have additional access to all of the categories that you can't see if you were lurking IfOnly.

You can contact IfOnly directly where they offer Concierge via telephone from 9 AM to 6 PM PST and email. Whether you want to inquire about an experience or even suggest one to a specific luminary, you can. For instance, if you want to hang out with luminary One Direction, you can suggest this to the staff of IfOnly.

Would I recommend IfOnly to a friend? Absolutely. Especially to those that are interested in engaging in an experience they will remember forever. And the best part is, the proceeds go directly to charity. There are simply no words to describe the experiences you will have, as they will be something you will remember and cherish for the rest of your life.

Starbucks Saturday

I have a confession to make, I think I am in love with Starbucks. I find myself there before work, after work, and sometimes during work. Since I am a huge foodie and find myself always snapping pictures of food, I decided to dedicate a blog post to Starbucks.
