I try to win you back, that is the point of the writing, but you are gone forever

Woot just wrapped up my first quarter! I have two weeks of break and then summer session starts. The first thing I did after my last class was meet up with Shi-an and eat at this place called Onigilly located downtown Palo Alto. The rice balls were good, but it was a bit pricey for 3. I would have liked either another rice ball or a side item.

Thoughts of my 1st quarter:

Snip, Snip

With fall about to roll in, and the feeling of wanting to wear something flowy, I pulled out my maxi dress with bright pink flowers. This is actually the only maxi dress I own. I’m 5’2, so I’m pretty short, and most maxi dresses are overflowing and I look like I’m drowning in them.  But I got this from Macy’s INC’s petite section. Even though it’s petite, it’s still pretty long and I actually wearing my wedges to not let the dress hit the floor.

Also, Tyler got a good photo of me as I was on the phone talking to my mother. Thank you, Tyler!

But new update: I decided to dye my hair in a light shade of brown. I didn’t bleach my hair, so it doesn’t look like it too much, but I also got straight bangs again.

The last time I bleached my hair was back in high school. But back then, because I dyed my hair quite often ~ half of college, I was confident in bleaching and dying my hair myself. I really like my hair being in a chesnut shade, but the shade I really want to try once is a pastel color. The upkeep for pastel hair is difficult, and that’s probably why I haven’t tried.

Anyways, why do I have my hair in buns in the first two photos? I wanted to curl my hair, but I knew I didn’t have time during the day to do so before dinner/movie night last Friday. Instead, due to the lack of time, I wrapped them into these two buns after I showered from the night before and left them there all day until after work. The hardest thing about these buns is making sure you split your hair evenly.

The final result is no-heat curled hair! My curled hair lasted all night, so I was pretty happy with the result.

I was looking for some more maxi dresses, and since it’s almost fall most of these dresses are starting to go on sale. Here’s some of my picks (the last one on this widget is my dress but in a different pattern):

Do you guys have any no-heat methods that you do? I have heard people tie their hair in leggings, and it lasts for a couple of days. I haven’t tired that out myself, but it’s nice to have a change in your hair.

Let’s Meat

By on June 26, 2017

I started off this summer with my boyfriend’s graduation. His family came from Texas and SoCal to see him walk, so the leading days to his graduation we traveled with his family meeting old friends and doing some sight-seeing.

But the following week, I went to eat at House of Prime Rib! I don’t think I have eaten here for over a year or so. Every time there’s an occasion, I am out-of-town. Regardless, I never have had a disappointing dinner here. The past couple of years, this place has been really busy (not that it wasn’t busy before). The Food Network featured them, and then a huge fluctuation of people started coming. Before, I believe I could walk in and wait maybe 30~45 minutes. Now, I don’t think walking in is a wise decision.

House a Prime Rib is a classic staple in San Francisco. Though it is a nice restaurant, it has an inviting casual ambiance. I would definitely recommend going here if you’re in the city!
