Spent a couple of days in San Francisco with the boyfriend, my brother, and our friend. Ike's Place Fat Bastard sandwich. Union Square. Chinatown. H&M and Zara. Late night Thai food with the boyfriend. Waiting in line for Mama's for an hour and a half for some French Toast and really really really good Monte Cristo Sandwich. Walked to Pier 39 and Fisherman's Wharf. Musee Mecanique. Cable Car rides. Shopping in Union Square. Cheesecake Factory on the 8th floor of Macy's. Berkeley. The Cheese Board Pizza Collective. Picnic on the center divider of Shattuck Ave. Home.

Taking a break from traveling since school starts tomorrow. I'll be going to New York City with my mom, my brother, and Curry dog for Christmas and New Years. I'm super duper excited.

his & hers

hers: zara pants, h&m shoes

Slowly getting into the outfit post scene. My apologies, summer wardrobe isn't my thing. Don't get me wrong, I love the fact that I don't have school but I hate the fact that I'm stuck wearing a summer dress or shorts instead of a layering ensemble. I try to sneak in some black (okay I always sneak in some black). Anyway, I've been trying to limit my spendings. I bought these boots at H&M last week with my gift card and employee discount so I ended up paying about $6. Not bad right?

his: levis jeans, nike air max

My boyfriend really only wears Nikes. I bought this pair for him on his 20th birthday. He was eyeing it for awhile. I tried to surprised him, but I failed. I need to buy him a new pair. Pretty much the 10 pairs he owns are all beat up haha.

oc fair, july 2009

School is just around the corner (3 weeks) and now that I formally resigned from H&M on a good note, I plan on redirecting my focus on projects that I have yet to complete, focus on school, and have fun before the first day of class. Trying to get all of these done before I have to focus on school and the countless work load for geography, history, statistics, information systems, and marketing:
  • Margarita Monday with coworkers
  • OC Fair
  • Barneys Warehouse Sale (still haven't gone)
  • A "whatever I want" shopping spree at H&M with my employee discount before it deactivates.
  • Kayak with the boyfriend
  • Switching out the purple & gold for blue. Go Dodgers!
  • Comedy Fiesta?
  • Hollywood sign
  • Venice Beach
  • Santa Monica
  • San Diego Zoo
  • Walt Disney Concert Hall
  • LA skyline
I'm really really going to miss working at H&M (well mainly my coworkers). Okay, I'll admit it. I will miss the early morning 30 mile commute to work in TRAFFIC and grabbing coffee at Starbucks since I had to wake up extra early to drive to work, running around the store lost as to where everything goes after not working for a week, feeling like its Christmas when we get Trend garments in shipment, pizza for lunch, and Corner Bakery on paydays . Oh man, I'm getting a bit emotional. It still hasn't hit me that I put in my two weeks.
