More pics from Japan!

This is a continuation of my previous Japan post

SF trip

Nothing excites me more than an impromptu trip out of Los Angeles, especially if it’s a trip up to the bay! I usually tend to hit up San Francisco at least once a year, it’s one of my most favorite cities to visit…

It was a refreshing and stress-free adventure to SF, can’t wait to go back.

Baycities 10/7/09

Today I decided to take my new cam out to lunch with me in Santa Monica. I wanted to test it out because I wasn’t too sure if I liked it(compared to my Nikon), but the only shooting I did was in my room. So I ended up meeting my to homies, Steph and Erica. We met up at Baycities for some much needed sandwiches.



Anyone who hasn’t been to Baycities, must go! So good…






Is it me, or do all chicks always hold their BBs like this?


Delish.


Little boots.


BB addict.




Lunch was definitely satisfying(always is at Baycities).


After playing around with my Canon outside for a bit, I’ve decided that I <3 it waaaay more than my Nikon :D. Back to the cave I go. Wrd.

Jazzi & m83 11/29/08

So my Saturday started off with me meeting up with my friend Jazzi at her new pad. Jazzi just moved back to L.A. from N.Y. two days ago and was just getting settled in.


Jazzi was choosing some new furniture with her roomate since their place is a bit empty.

While they did that, I browsed through Planet Mag, one of the companies Jazzi works for.




The original plan was for us to go to Pinks, but like always, there was a super long line. So we got hot dogs from Carneys.

After stuffing our faces, we went back to the pad to chill.

Unfortunately, Jazzi was still suffering from jet lag and was ready to crash. So I decided to head out to the Henry Fonda to see M83.



School of Seven Bells opened for M83. I was actually astonished how well they performed. I’m so use to crappy openers. *coughGIRLTALKOPENERScough*

Chill crowd.








M83 was definitely a mellow show for me. Instead of being surrounded with the usual teens(like myself) that bounce around pushing/crashing/shoving/hitting/fighting…etc, I was actually surrounded by a more mature audience that stood and nodded their heads to the music. Overall, I enjoyed M83 a lot.

I had to leave the show early since it was 12 something and I had no idea how I was going to get home.

$35.
