Last weekend, one of my good college buddies came back to the Bay Area for a visit and stayed over at my house. It's been a few years since I've seen her and we had so much fun catching up. She is a newly wed and when I asked about her wedding and her hubby, her face literally lit up with excitement. I am really happy for her, and hearing about her stories also reminded me about how close my own wedding is. Part of me is really excited about it, but part of me is so nervous because of the preparations we still have. eeeek!
We went shopping together. At Forever 21, I spotted the cutest Hello Kitty tank and immediately declared it to be mine!
Being the bow lover that I am, I also had to grab these socks:
I really love Forever 21 for their jewelries. This kitty necklace has a long chain, it'd be perfect for the fall.
My friend also gave me a pair of earrings she picked out for me from India. I never owned any earrings that looks like this, I love it!
After a yummy and filling brunch with her, we took a stroll along an arts and crafts fair. When I passed by the booth that sold these adorable kitty grass (reminds me of Chia Pet), I just had to get them for Mia. It is actually really easy to maintain, all you have to do is remember to water everyday. Look at how much it grew within a week :)
I also grabbed these Goody Spin Pin and Modern Updo clip. I've seen Youtube videos of girls doing awesome hair styles with these accessories and decided to try them out myself.
The Modern Updo clip was a bit harder for me to manage. I loved the look of the model on the packaging though. Maybe I just don't have enough hair to achieve that look yet? Anyone that used it and have tips for me, please let me know.
This weekend, fiance and I went shopping on Saturday, and got him the shirt and tie for the Big Day. We decided to try out a new pho place near home and really loved it. Don't you like their presentation of the basil? hehehe. It's been a while since we've had pho so we really enjoyed our dishes. Pho holds a special place in our heart because the first dinner we ever had together was to a pho restaurant. And prior to that, I didn't even know what pho was! But as soon as I tried it that day, I fell in love with the dish :p
I also grabbed more jewelries :)
