aya visits!!

*picture heavy!!

I am FINALLY blogging about Aya's visit...which was a few weeks ago lol.  I got to meet
Irodori since she was here on a little vacation.  She was staying REALLY close by..and I mean like...10-15 minutes so you know we had to meet up!!  I always imagined her to be taller, but she was this cute, little Japanese girl with a HUGE personality!  I absoulutely love her!!

Andy and I took her around and first we hit up Melody's Makeup Outlet store since the CCO was out of the way.  She did DAMAGE to that store!!
Andy was our personal photographer for the day :]
Swatching...
more swatching..
Yes...she IS holding a basket for all her goodies!

Then we hit up Santa Monica.  We had to grab some food since we were hungry and we ate at this cute Italian restaurant on 3rd St. Promenade.  This sweetie treated us to lunch...and we all ordered the same Chicken pasta plate! LOL!!  It was freaken good!!

Then we hit up Sephora...which was pretty big compared to some other ones I've been to.  My hauls will be posted soon!!

Here she is getting foundation tested!

This is me trying to find ANOTHER black eye pencil...the MUA suggested their Sephora Kohl pencils, and I've heard some good things so I was interested...and for the price I was in love!  More about that laterrrrr

It was getting chilly, and before we went to Venice Beach [about 5 mins down PCH], we ran into Forever21 and she grabbed a jacket :]  and some other cute things of course :]

It was chilly!!  There were potheads everywhere!!  It smelled of pot and hippies...yum.

Look as this crazy guy on roller blades playing a guitar!!  He wanted a tip from Andy since he got snapped but we had no cash :p

How cute is this?!  Her very own store at Venice Beach!

There were tattoo parlors galore!  I really want one, and Aya has some really cool ones!!  But still...I'm too scared!  

I am so very glad that I got to meet this crazy, fun gal!!  I can't wait for her to come back and when I come to Japan we are going to rock the streets!!  I hope you had as much fun as I did!!  Thanks for the goodies that I absolutely loveeee!!!

I'll post next on my small haul at Sephora and the goodies Aya brought from Japan just for me!!  This was before I said I would haul anymore before hitting pan on five products!!  Yes..I am going to take that challenge with you Katie!!  Hopefully I can do it...LOL!!  Are there any rules on what is included/excluded? :p
