This was my first Memorial Day weekend as a working girl. For the past oh 18+ years of my life as a student, Memorial Day was just part of the summer vacation and felt nothing that special to me. But this year, it meant a 3-day weekend, woohoo! :)
On Saturday, Fiance and I visited San Francisco. He went to his best friend's house warming party, and me...of course I had to call up May and do another fun girl's day out! May brought me goodie bag :) In it was the cutest Snoopy with a pink polka dotted bow tie. She also got me a Shiseido toner sample, and a MUFE Glossy Full gloss in #7 Pale Pink.
We have frequently requested May to take us to her favorite dim sum place in SF China Town. Boy did we have our dim sum craving satisfied! I didn't take too many pictures though, fiance's chopsticks always got to the food before I realized to take a photo :p
After some yummy dim sum, May and I said bye to fiance and we shopped around Union Square for a little bit. At Forever 21, I found my new favorite bracelet:
We also went to Japan Town.
I hopped into my favorite Japanese sweets store, and got:
White chocolate covered freeze dried strawberries (hmm so good! Such a smart idea to extend the life of chocolate covered strawberries)
Banana milk chocolate mochi (omg my favorite! I go bananas over banana flavored candies/sweets and this is no exception)
Tansy and black sugar dumplings (tansy? hmm these are like red bean filled mochis, so good!)
After Japan Town, we had dinner at My Tofu House, it is also a restaurant that I've wanted to try out for a long time. May and I ordered so much food -- tofu soup for each of us, ribs, and bibimbap.
Thanks for such a fun day out in San Francisco, May!
On Sunday, fiance's bestie came to visit us from Santa Cruz. We went to Costco and bought so much food for BBQ. I didn't take any pictures of our food, the boys got to them before I could have a chance :p
On Monday, I actually had to finish some work at home. But it was pretty exciting too, because I finalized and ordered my wedding favors. I am so excited about my wedding favors, I think our guests will really like the idea! I will share with you with more details later :p
I also decided to try on these glue-on nails from Revlon. I've never had any luck with glue-on nails and the last time I played with them was in high school. I remember it was impossible to not leave any air bubbles when I press them on. My natural nails have not been behaving well lately, the tips were getting really weak and peeled easily, so I trimmed all my nails really short, and decided to give these glue-on nails a try again. I've heard good reviews about these Revlon ones. They turned out pretty well, and to my surprise, almost no air bubbles!
I totally wouldn't mind using these again for a special event or a girl's night out in the future. They look pretty natural too, no?
I only kept these on for two days though, and removed them all last night. To remove them, I tried the Kiss All or 1 Artificial Nail Remover. It was really easy to use and all the nails/glue dissolved within about 10 minutes of dipping. No pulling or tugging needed, therefore minimal damage to the natural nails. Amazing!
