Shopping in SF with May

Last month after I came back from vacation in Las Vegas, I went to SF to visit May because we had both wanted to meet up and also exchange birthday presents for each other!  (we are both April babies).

We had so much fun catching up and shopping together!

Look at our Hello Kitty wallets! I dragged May into Metro Park to look at the Hello Kitty wallet (bottom) I bought from Las Vegas, they didn't have the one I have, but May spotted a cute pink one (top) and bought it for herself. So cute!

I don't think we can ever resist buying Hello Kitty items when we meet up as we are both HK lovers :) This time we both bought a HK birthday plush for ourselves. These are really cool, first you choose the doll that has your birth month embroidered on it, then you pick out your birth date tag and attach that onto HK's necklace, and viola, April 17 :)

We grabbed some spring cardigans and sweaters for ourselves at Old Navy.

We each got a Clinique All About Eyes Serum to try out. I've been using mine twice daily since I got it last month, not sure if it helps with any dark circle/fine line issues that I have, but I do like how easy it is to apply -- it comes with a metal roller ball at the dispenser and all you have to do it roll it around your eyes a few times to dispense the product. The metal ball also helps to cool and soothe the eye area during application. Since it is a serum, I always follow up with a more concentrated eye cream to make sure my delicate eye area is protected.

At Bath and Body Works, I picked up this watermelon scented candle and their newest product -- a body mist in Sweet Pea, which is also my favorite scent from BBW. I thought the body mist would be a great way to cool down on a hot summer day. So I'll be trying that out once summer comes.

Look at how cute the watermelon candle is! It also smells exactly like watermelon, so yummy!

Enough about hauls, now I will share with you part 1 of birthday presents from May: 

A set of super adorable Hello Kitty PJ! 

Some stuff that I asked May to help me order from Sasa. But I definitely did not order THIS much! May is such a sweetie!

The face epilator spring thing that actually really works to pull out fine hairs on the face!
A Kevin BeautyMaker Love Pu Pu Cheek blush in Orange (I've wanted this for so long, and I can't believe May got it for me!!!). Isn't this the most adorable packaging ever!
As if that wasn't enough, she got me 4 lippies! May is officially my lippies girl, she always find me new lipsticks/lip glosses to try out.

 The Love Pu Pu Cheek blush comes with a super adorable puff. My heart just melted upon opening that package.

The lippies she got me were all the ones we've talked about and that I've been lemming. She took notice of all of them and got them for me, she's just such a sweetheart!

- Revlon Color Burst lipstick in Soft Nude
-MAC lipstick in Myself
-MAC lipstick in Viva Glam Cindi
-NARS lip gloss in Turkish Delight (I've never told her about this one, but it was actually one of my earliest lemmings ever since I got addicted to makeup, I think she just read my mind! :p)

Matcha green teas! *love*
