85c Degrees Bakery + Blogger Meetup

On our way to San Antonio from San Francisco we made a pit stop in Southern California.  One of the reasons I love blogging is because it's given me the opportunity to connect with and befriend so many people around the world.  

Interestingly enough blogging has also allowed me to RE-connect with some friends from Hawaii that I made nearly 10 years ago!  Four Carats is a blog made up of four fabulous BFF's from Hawaii.  Lucky for me two of the sparkly four carats now live in Southern California and were able to meet me for a quickie group meet up before we continued on our journey to San Antonio.

One of my all time favorite places to eat in Taiwan is 85 degree's bakery.  It's the Taipei version of Starbucks.  When I heard there was an 85 degree's in SoCal I flipped a lid! 

This by the way was the line on a totally random Thursday night at 8pm.  WHAT?!  Have you ever seen a line at a bakery at 8pm on a random Thurs??  Crazy right?

Two of the four gorgeous girls that make up Four Carats

There was actually a "bakery bouncer" who let a few people in at a time.  Hahaha.  It was like standing outside of a club bahaha.

Poki the superstar!!  So adorable :)

Step 1 - Grab a tray
Step 2 - Grab a tong
Step 3 - Grab everything!

*Drool*  So many yummy baked goodies.  

P.S. - I actually got yelled at NOT once but twice for taking these pictures bahahah.  
I suffer for this blog. HAHAHA. jkjkjkjk!

P.S.S. - The square toast you see above has this butter/sugar/condescend milk coating on top.

OOTD: Lace & Python Chanel

I have a confession to make I almost didn't post these OOTD photos. 

Why you ask?

They're pretty much awful.

The lighting's bad,  I think there's a TV glare on my face,  my "Aunt" was visiting me and between Seattle, Vegas and life I've sadly gained a lot of weight :(

UGH!!!!  But I sucked it up and decided to post anyways because that's what bloggings all about right? 

Here I am in my bloated, fatty, bad lighting glory.

I'm fairly certain this lace dress/tunic/top on me since I'm such a chubba wubba :(  needs no introduction since practically every blogger has blogged about this particular forever 21 item.

I'm wearing both of my Vegas purchases - my holy grail Chanel blue metallic láme python reissue and the purple suede Miu Miu's which are kind of hard to see in the pictures.  I think because the room was so dim it's turning up black in these OOTD photos.


Top - Forever 21
Bottem - Hue
Jewelry - Jewelmint earrings, Ann Taylor Necklace
Shoes - Miu Miu
Handbag - Chanel

I promise future posts won't be so whiny hahaha.

Every goodbye makes the next hello closer

San Francisco has been a really wonderful to me.

I've made some really fantastic and wonderful friends. 

I cultivated my love of good food here as well. 

I met and married my better half - the hubs here as well. 

San Francisco this is not good bye but see you later!


A big shoutout to Shirley for planning such a wonderful going away. 

A big shoutout and thank you to everyone for coming out and sending us off.  

It really warmed our hearts!  Thank you so much!

You guys will be missed and we would love for you to visit us in Germany! :p
