Lovely little gift from my friend! She wasn't sure when she would see me again and put together this little bag of goodies. She also included 3 chocolates from her trip to Korea. Very sweet of her, figuratively and literally :)
Adorable pocket soap! Little sheets of soap in the shape of roses! I had to get it.....I am weak when it comes to cute things T_T
Piggy i love you...I had to buy this too T_T
My new Hello Kitty stamp ring! :D
Finn headphones! Quality: Meh lol. Cuteness: 10/10 (again, I am weak when it comes to cute things T_T)
Bwaaaahhhh I HAD to get this! I am so happy that my best friend saw this little guy! He's so cute, I had to take him home...We both did lol.  
And he glows! The light fades from light to dark :) He can float in bath water or in a fish bowl as decoration (If you'd like) Just too awesome!
First attempt at watercolor... What I learned: Watercolor. is. hard. lol.
Just bought this today! Seems like most artists I follow like to use moleskine products. I'm curious about the quality... I guess I'll find out! 
It was a beautiful day today, why not paint something! I also wanted to test out my new watercolor sketch book. Hehe, I think you can guess who I painted :)

Well, that pretty much sums up my week! I hope you enjoyed my photos as much as I enjoyed taking them!

A Perfect Day for an Oyster Outing

After weeks of craving raw oysters, my lovely friends and I made a trip to Hog Island Oyster Bar for an early dinner during their happy hour. It was nothing short of amazing! On average, the oysters run about $2.75 per oyster, but select oysters are half off during the 5-7pm happy hour! A bit pricey still, but so worth it! I've never had better oysters before. They're incredibly fresh (no taste of the sea whatsoever) and they just melt in your mouth! Talking about it makes me want more lol. I am certain that we will be back again in the near future! :)

Best Clam Chowder ever! 
Grilled Cheese
The Oysters!!! *drool*
Lovely View of the Bay Bridge
Despite our smiles, it was quite cold out! lol

After dinner, we explored the little shops in the Marketplace.

No trip to the Ferry Building Marketplace is complete without picking up a few goodies from Miette! 
So pretty! I love mint green :)
Such an adorable little shop!
Soooo good! They're not the prettiest, but they taste amazing!

After dessert, we traveled back to our hometown. It was still quite early. The night was young, and so were we...So why not end the night with a couple of drinks! :)

Mango Margaritas
My lovelies :)
Bartender making B52s, one for each of us, and one for him!

Seriously, he made the best drinks I've ever had! Such a friendly guy too! If you happen to be at Lucky 13, look for Patrick!

So that concludes my trip! The day was absolutely perfect with great food and great company! I'm a little sad that it had to end. However, I'm sure there will be many more days like it! Now that school has started, updating my blog may be difficult, but I'll definitely try! I hope you enjoyed my little adventure :) and I hope to post again soon!
