Great Store in San Pedro Square Market!


I found the coolest store in San Pedro Square Market this weekend: Ay Dios Mio!

San Pedro Square Market

Ay Dios Mio!

The owner, Rose, is really sweet and gets tons of cool stuff from all over the world! Right now the theme is el dio de los muertos — check it out!!

She’s also got some great artwork!

Last, but not least, there are some great accessories! And yes, if you want me to ship you something I’ll help you O=]

Gotta end on a sweet note ;D

Rose is hosting a Girls’ Night with Crafty Chica Kathy Murillo this Saturday — the perfect opportunity to stop by ❤

French Café de la Presse & SF Chinatown


One of my sisters from Kappa Delta, Britney, wanted me to introduce her to authentic French restaurants in the Bay Area, and since I only know of 3 and they’re all in San Francisco, we decided to take a little trip!

I decided to take her to Café de la Presse since it’s right next to Chinatown ^^

 

 

Unfortunately the pictures came out a little dark since we were right next to a window, but here’s the yummy food we had =3

Started off with mimosas and bellinis (like a peach mimosa)

 

I ordered a quiche lorraine and Britney had a croque madame =3 (and mystery friend hidden in the corner had pan bagna)

 

We then went on a nice stroll around Chinatown ^^

The entrance to San Francisco’s Chinatown is right next to Café de la Presse!

 

 

It was decorated with pretty red lanterns =D I think they were probably left over from a festival —  don’t know what Chinese festival there was in the last month though….

 

 

Found some great street art too!

 

 

Cool huh? ^^

 

 

We were pretty full from lunch but had to stop for a free tea tasting. Make sure you stop at one of their 3 locations in SF Chinatown. The tea is great, the people are very knowledgeable and helpful, and they give you tons of extra stuff ^^ I ordered black tea and the guy gave me some chrysanthemum tea to mix in with it for free =D

 

Last but not least, we did “a little” shopping O=]

 

That’s it for now folks!

Stay tuned for Part 2: Berkeley (yeah, it was a hell of a day =] )

A Pre-Summer Night’s Adventure


It’s not spring yet, but the weather has been heavenly these evenings in Paris, and what better way to celebrate those glorious nights than with a nice, long walk and a tasty Japanese dinner?

Throughout the night, I somehow managed to meet Luigi…

Oh yes, he's real!

… and discover that even famous French macaron-master Ladurée can’t resist Hello Kitty’s charm.

If you've never had a macaroon, I highly recommend you do; they're delicious!! Especially the ones at Ladurée ❤

See, she agrees!

Project Happy: it felt amazing to quit my job today (more details to come later.) I had no idea I would feel THIS relieved, happy and free =]
