Weekend Activities.

January 28, 2014

This past weekend was a laid back one. I had a wonderful four days in San Francisco prior so I wasn't looking to do something major. It was my typical outing. There was dinner and a movie and a little retail therapy. Not too shabby!

The morning was spent running errands... Later in the afternoon I found myself in a nearby shopping center (Irvine Spectrum). I went to Barnes and Noble and purchased issue 56 of Frankie Magazine and that was about it. I bought a dozen books while in San Francisco and definitely didn't need anymore. My to-read list is miles long and I've yet to dent it, shame on me, it's been a slow month for reading.

Dinner was had at California Pizza Kitchen, I had their Quinoa + Arugula Salad (low lighting didn't make for an apetizing picture) and their Five Cheese and fresh tomato pizza. Absolutely no complaints everything was delicious. I have this new thing where I MUST have dessert after meals.. be it granola with honey, fruit, ice cream just something sweet.. and I was needing my fix, my luck, the CPK has a Casey's Cupcakes in-front so I went in and scarfed down a scrumptious Red Velvet cupcake. If you didn't know, these are my absolute favorite cupcakes they're better than Sprinkles in my opinion.

Anthropologie was next. I love that store! It's one of my favorites their clothes are just so soft and have that worn in feel. A little expensive but good quality stuff typically is and they have a big clearance selection so you're bound to find something affordable. I liked this sweater from their website but I didn't see it in store. But I did see these purrfect cups!.. I resisted though..

Lunch at a Mexican place called El Pescador (I think). There was a forty minute wait so it must be good, right? I didn't take any picture's inside but I took a picture of the pretty fountain while we waited..

I had packed my camera in my tote (I'm still using the Everlane tote!) but it was looking gloomy. I knew there'd be nothing to take pictures of if it rained. Camera not being waterproof and all..Made our way over to this private (aka, you pay to get in..) park.. trails, small beach, picnic areas.. miles long so I guess it's worth it if you make a day of it).. Fed some ducks for a while and took the following pictures with my Nikon.. There were so many and I totally want one now! JK. sort of..  It was extremely relaxing and beautiful.. it'd been a bit more enjoyable had I brought a sweater..  I was effing freezing!

The pictures previous and after the ducks are with my iPhone 5S

I then headed to another open-air mall. I had no plans really but I had shaved my legs and put on my face..  I wanted to take full advantage of it.. I walked into the Apple Store and was checking out the cases when these pink earphones got my attention! I put back the Kate Spade Polka Dot case I was planning on buying and got these urBeats instead. I never really cared to upgrade from the EarPods that come with the iPhone and, yes, they've been a source of pain and discomfort but I bought these Nike ones made for runners and they completely sucked (too big for my ears, broke, and the sound was not great, at least not for the price) so I decided to stick with the Apple ones 'cause if it ain't broke... But I love the tangle free chord in these the sound is superb and significantly better than Apple's EarPods. I'm a very satisfied customer.

Pinkberry because I needed* something sweet and granola with honey and blueberries is my latest obsession, I have it multiple times a day.

Lastly, the night ended with American Hustle. I've been meaning to watch it ever since it came out but I got distracted with my San Francisco vacation...
The movie stars Amy Adams, Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence. It's based on an a 1978 FBI case where they FBI collaborated with a convicted con-man in order to trap public officials into taking bribes on camera. It's very entertaining and it's a combination of thriller, drama, comedy.  A must see.. Plus, Jennifer Lawrence is in it 'nuff said. And who doesn't feel this way about her.

It was a pretty good weekend wouldn't you say?

I have nearly 500 pictures of my vacation to go through and edit hence why no San Francisco post yet.. It seems I'll have to divide it into two posts as well.. but I'm working on that and those posts are coming later this week!
