Thoroughly Modern Millie-ish

On Saturday Tim and I had a day-long date in San Francisco where we ate Dynamo Donuts, wandered around Yerba Buena Gradens, Westfield Shopping Centre, Union Square, and ended the day watching Sara Bareilles at Bill Graham Civic Auditorium. HELLA EPIC! Technically we ended it by eating In-N-Out.

Anyhow, I wanted to wear something fancy, but I had a hard time putting outfits together. Everything was either too casual looking or it required my pink slip dress that wasn’t anywhere to be found. Half of my closet found its way on my bed. RUGH! But I settled with my modern flapper girl outfit: my maroon felt bucket hat, cardigan, and pink frilly dress. I ditched my t-strap heels for obvious reasons. Ever since I saw that 100 years of London style video back in August, I’ve been wanting to put together a 1920s inspired ensemble. I think I came up with this outfit in October, but couldn’t think of an appropriate place to wear it until Saturday.

Before I headed out, I threw on my furry paw scarf. Fashionable women in the 20’s wore fur stoles, so I thought it made sense.

And now I’m going to finish off this post with tons of pictures of our day!

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip, Maple Bacon Apple, Passion Fruit Milk Chocolate, and Vanilla Bean
We always eat our donuts at Dynamo Park.
Fancy bear masks at the Zeum store. I ended up getting the horse one pictured in the background.
I'm an Ood!
We stumbled upon an anime meet-up. And there was a dude dressed like the 11th Doctor! I didn't take a picture of him though. His bow tie was all wrong anyway. x__x
When I went to SFSU, I liked going to Yerba Buena Gardens a lot as it was my favorite thinking spot. I showed Tim around since he's never been there.
Union Square! Tim took a picture with this crazy ass looking street performer.
We passed by Tiffany's and I had to stop to take a picture of their window display. I LOVE carousels!

I’ll be putting up my next post later today which will be all about the foul mouthed goddess: Sara Bareilles. 😀

EPICAL EPICNESS: Part 1

I’m tired of these mother effing snakes in my mother effing park! Oh wait… no I’m not.

Yesterday Tim and I went to San Francisco for an UBER EPIC ADVENTURE! First we went to Dynamo Donuts in the Mission, then headed to The Walt Disney Family Museum, and then watched Drive. More on Disney and Drive later. Let’s talk about donuts for a minute, okay? Yeah, that’s right. I’m talkin’ ’bout food again! I’ve always wanted to try a maple bacon donut ever since I saw the Maple Bacon Bar at Voodoo Doughnuts in Portland while watching the Travel Channel (or was it Food Network?). A little while after that, either my sister or my aunts told me about Dynamo Donuts in San Francisco and how they had a maple bacon apple donut and bunch of other fancy schmancy flavors. I drooled over the menu on their site and finally went for the first nearly a year ago with Tim before we watched Broken Bells in Oakland.

This is the face of a very happy man.

I don’t know, there’s just something about these donuts. I’ve only been there a few times since the Mission was a bit of a ways away from my [former] house in Daly City. Tim and I had been talking about our withdrawals from Dynamo for the LONGEST time. And we finally made plans to go yesterday! It was a journey that was long overdue.

Passion Fruit Milk Chocolate is one of my favorite flavors. *drool*

Every time we go, we take our goods to the park next door and run around the giant mosaic snake, which we have named Horatio. There were tons of little kids in the park yesterday, so we couldn’t go ape shit like we normally do. And we also learned that there’s a water fountain that you can run through in the middle of Horatio! Crazyness.

The first time we played there, there were only a couple of kids and one dad went up to us and said, “Are you here with any children?” Tim told him, “No, but we’re kids at heart.” The dad totally didn’t go for it though. He basically tried to kick us out since we were 2 twenty-somethings running around and jumping off of a giant snake. I mean… we were upstaging the kids in the fun factor. They were just sitting there picking their noses. Okay, maybe they weren’t. But they most certainly didn’t look like they were having as much fun as Tim and I.

Sometimes I like to take toys with me to document the places I go.

I pretty much had a food orgasm when I bit into my Apricot Cardamom donut. Why can’t donuts like these be made available everywhere?! F*ck Krispy Kreme and Dunkin’ Donuts! Actually, I’ve never had Dunkin’ Donuts, but I’m willing to bet all the money in my bank account (which isn’t much) that Dynamo Donuts is way better than them.

I don’t know why I’m smiling, my donut is damn near gone!

I wrote a more detailed review of Dynamo Donut for Imaginary Battles, including my favorite flavors and how you need to get yo ass there early! If you want to know a bit more about these holey pieces of awesomeness, you can read my review here.

Part Deux of EPICAL EPICNESS is coming up in a bit, stay tuned…
