Breakfast at Boudin SF

Posted by simplyvivi at 1:52 AM 1 comments

Last Saturday morning, my best friend took me to breakfast at Boudin SF in Costa Mesa. It was a small cozy restaurant/bakery that offers breakfast , lunch, dinner menu with on site bakery that baked fresh bread all day. Their menu offers fast-grab food from salad, sandwiches, soup, and fresh bakery. We had their famous Clam Chowder Soup in the Bread Bowl. It was a delightful experience with warm tasty soup, friendly service, and cozy feeling. I would definitely come back to try their sandwiches menu.

the soup texture was firm enough with chunky clams
, that's exactly how i like my Clam Chowder to be..
need to mention my rings that I just bought from Forever21: Pearl mix with gold & rhinstones, so cute !!

Pinkberry is one of my favorite treat ; they have the best yogurt taste and freshest fruits. It's such a healthy snack with 0 calories :). Pinkberry was having special promo buy 1 get 1 free from 2/14- 2/19, so I treat myself & my friends 5 times this week :) . It was one of those non-guilty pleasures I've done this week ^-*

Get to know Snowy & Tobey

Posted by simplyvivi at 12:43 AM 0 comments
I love my 2 dogs Snowy & Tobey dearly. Snowy is a 8 years old Maltese mixed with Pomeranian. He's very grumpy, yet very handsome. Everyone, even other dogs, would turned heads when they passed by Snowy. Though he is grumpy, but he is a very sentimental guy that like kisses, hugs, and bones :). Tobey is a super hyper 3 years old Pomeranian. He is the cutest thing, he likes to smile on camera, love to eat a lot of anything, and he makes pig noise when he eats. They're the cutest thing that I own, and would never get tired of.
isn't Snowy handsome ??

Smile Tobey :)

step 2: 2 layer of Sally Hansen "GreenWith Envy"
step 3: while the polish is still wet, apply the Fruit art on ( I bought from ebay)
there's all kinds: strawberry, kiwi, apple, banana, lime, watermelon..

Happy Lunar New Year! 2010

Posted by simplyvivi at 8:24 PM 0 comments
My name is Vivienne, I started this blog because of my long lived passion for fashion, creative art, beauty, photography, and food :). I wanted to share this devotion from my day to day routines. Hope you will find mere joy & inspiration to enjoy simple things in life from my blog. Thanks for stopping by :)

It was a nice sunny day to celebrate Lunar New Year with my loved ones. We enjoyed great food, warm air, fun atmosphere, and familiar faces. We filled our stomach with all the good Vietnamese food like Grilled Corn of the Cob, Grilled Squid ( very chewy, you would need strong tooth for this), spicy Papaya Beef Salad, Egg roll, Meatballs. We quenched our thirst with Sugar Cane Juice, Lemonade, Strawberry Banana Smoothie, and completed our trips with Green Tea Red Bean Crepe. We had a fun time enjoying the New Year atmosphere, from everyone's smiley faces, delicious food, fun games, and traditional scenery. I found a culture touch of where I'm coming from, and looking forward to start another adventurous year of the TIGER- Rawh!!!
