So as I mentioned, ealier this month, I went to the Bay Area with another friend to meet up our highschool-college buddy (the two knew each other since 7th grade) . Here is all the random phone camera photography I did that I wasn't able to squeeze into my Instagram.
I tried to add a what I hauled part to this post, but I reckon it's better to keep it separate since I bought too much craps there as well.
The Bay Bridge...I forgot about the Golden Gate Bridge *face palm*
A Benefit vending machine at SFO. There is also a Tom Ford counter where every single eyeshadow palette is sold out.
San Fransisco Chinatown was a very relaxing place to walk through and a paradise for bead (semiprecious, jade and pearl!) lovers. Around 90% of the damage was done here.
Cloud above the Golden Gate Park. I miss the flowers there already (and I will have to wait for half a year before we get any bloom here).
Cosmos from neighbor's yard
Butterfly at the Academy of Sciences. People call that glass dome a rainforest? It felt like Houston on a balmy day...
Irvin Cafe - with very reasonable pricing and great bubble tea.
Asian Art Museum - Fairly interesting stuff bottles but could use more painting and textiles.
De Young Museum (didn't have time to go in)
My favorite piece in Asian Art Museum - The Yongzheng single colored porcelain 雍正单色釉. The Palace Museum in Beijing has more of these (fancy plates) in vibrant colors like Granny Smith green and lapis blue...It's on my must see list.
We were in the city for three days (I went to Chinatown twice because...gotta get all the beads) then drove to Yosemite to experience the great outdoor (hiked, was dying).
Artistic log at Yosemites (I wipped out my DSLR for it)
Artistic pinecone near Glacier Point (no I didn't do it)
Now pretending to be a #bbloger - Skincare I bought with me (left my Shiseido cleansers at friend's bathroom and forgot to take out the Josie Maran sunscreen)
1.Andalou Vitamin C Serum
2.Akin Rosehip Oil
3. Jurluque Skin Balancing Face Oil (I mix it with rosehip oil and pad onto damp face).
4. Shiseido lash serum
5.Holysnails El Dorado (I use it on hands and nails)
Two Majolica Majorca palettes which is easy to replace and/or I have (more than 1) backups of (MJ BE-700) . I am actually wearing it today, it goes so much better with the dim lighting of Northeast winter.
Every vacation I take, I end up packing mutiples of the same thing...This time is four sheer red: Coffret D'Or PK 305, RD 214, Lunasol Energy Red and Revlon Wild Watermelon.
On my way back. I guess I sort of saw the Golden Gate Bridge?
Back to Jersey on the 7th
That's all for today, I promise the second part will be more orderly.
