The 30 Degree Weather



 






It's 30 degree C outside! I was so cold last week and it is super hot today! It makes me feel like I'm at home.
I don't have any class on Wednesday so my roommate and I went exploring. We walked from our dorm all the way to Russian Hill, one of the highest points of San Francisco and we took in the beautiful view of the Bay Bridge. Then we walked to the Fisherman's Wharf all the way to the Ferry building, passing Pier 39 on our way, letting our (by our I meant me) inner tourist out.
It's a beautiful day!

Maiden Lane




I noticed this small alley along Stockton st. at Union Square and I've always wanted to walk along the alley but never did, until yesterday that is.
I went to buy fabric for my final project and the fabric store has a back door to this alley. The name of this alley is "Maiden Lane". It's not a long alley or anything, it only goes on for 2 blocks. Walking along the alley made me feel happy, it has a somewhat European vibe to it and the atmosphere was lovely and I thought I'd share it with you. 
Maiden Lane is filled with upper-middle-end and high-end stores like Chanel, Diptyque, Theory, Marc Jacobs, All Saints, etc. I went in to Diptyque, I've heard so many good things about it and when I saw they have a boutique here in Maiden Lane I was eager to visit. The products are not cheap at all but I went in there nonetheless and I have to say that they have one of the loveliest window display and store set up and the best thing is that the boutique smells magical! 
 Make sure you visit Maiden Lane if you're in San Francisco! I think it would look even better at night when the hanging lights are on!
