Went to a local Japanese grocery store and we picked out the sodas with the cutest bottles, and candy with the coolest packaging. The peach soda was actually pretty good, but we can't figure out what the lucky cat soda is supposed to be. It's a little sour, seems like something I know, but I can't put my finger on it. The Super Soda has a very very very sour powder coating, but after that it was sweet and then a powder filling that was a little fizzy. It's very hard to describe, but its definitely an experience. The other bag was other flavors of soda, coke, grape, melon, lemon and ramune. This one was sweet and also had that fizzy quality. It was a lot of fun picking out drinks and candy that we had no idea what would taste like and even more exciting trying them.

tried a tutorial from Amber at Barefoot Blonde
Love her hair tutorials, wish I had as beautiful and long hair as her. But I can never get my hair to stay very long in loose braids, it just slips right out. I love this hair style because there is so much texture and I think even as it slips out it still looks beautiful. All those braids were quite a work out for my arms though!
I miss this coffee so much when I'm in NY. Philz Coffee is a chain in California that serves a wide variety of blends of coffee, haven't tried a single one I didn't like. The Mint Mojito might be their most photographed and famous cup. It's sweet and creamy, and they stuff the cup full of fresh mint. It is a light coffee that is very refreshing. Also tried the Anesthesia to the Upside with cream and sugar today, I really enjoyed it. Had a very full coffee flavor without being overwhelming with just a little bit of sweetness. Would definitely recommend both of these cups.

|our finished bun & the cookbook|
We bought frozen plain buns so we only had to take on one challenge at a time and then we have the pork belly after cooking it for two hours, some greens and lightly pickled cucumber I think next time we'll try making our own buns and cutting the cucumber a little thicker so they hold their crunch for longer. The only seasoning we used in the whole dish was salt and sugar and hoisin sauce and it turned out really good!

I mostly enjoyed looking at the old posters and advertisements, a lot of the graphic design I really liked, you could really see how they used the grid. I wish I could have gotten better pictures of the posters, but the lim was so dim and the spotlights added a lot of glare. These are just two photos to give you an idea of what I was looking at.

|Two of Urban Outfitters most popular bralettes.|
I love bralettes for layering because they add just a tiny little peak of texture or color and they're super comfortable. :)

Bought lunch at Gayle's Bakery and then brought it to Seacliff State Beach for a picnic. Every time we go to this beach we stop at Gayle's to pick up food for our lunch. Huge selection of food, we got sandwiches, pasta, pastries, bread and shrimp that were all delicious.

Virgil's is my boyfriend's favorite root beer, and we finally found it at Whole Foods. There were quite a few brands and drinks that we've never heard of before so we also picked up Fentimans Cherry Tree Cola that had a very cute dog logo.
Virgil's root beer tastes like black licorice &
Fentimans cherry tree cola tastes like sour cherry
I also had to try this wild poppy because the bottle is too cute.
I love the little poppy.
I actually really like this one! It really does taste like peach and the light vanilla makes it very sweet.

meat combination & ye doro tibs
I love Ethiopian food and this is probably my favorite place. The flavors are so bold and buttery with a little bit of spice. The cheese and the salad add a nice refreshing touch, especially good on very hot days. This restaurant has won tons of awards, and I highly recommend it!
