Hello lovelies! I’ve finally found some time to edit all of the photos I took when I attended the celebration of Hanami (“flower viewing”) aka the Cherry Blossom Festival in San Francisco several weeks ago. There was quite a few so I loafed around…but better late than never, right? The festival itself was so fun! They closed down several blocks to provide for many different cultural and fun booths. It has been so long since I last attended a Cherry Blossom festival, I see a lot of new booths. They even had an Akita and Shiba Inu booth! My personal favorites.
Below is what I wore there. It probably doesn’t look like it, but it was extremely hot that day. – Which was not my favorite. But I stuck through it, and enjoyed the festival very much. Please enjoy these photos I took of some of my favorite things there!Details – crop top: Forever21 | skirt: Forever 21 | bag: Banana Republic | shoes: Converse | watch: Daniel Wellington | necklace: Forever 21, Etsy.In the past, I’ve never had the patience to practice origami, but I’ve always thought they make beautiful decorations, especially when they’re hung. ♡ The Akita stand – IT’S SO FLUFFY, I’M GONNA DIE!!!
We also saw tons of air plants, terrariums, bamboo plants and bonsais there as well! I’m not sure if it’s because I’m an earth sign, or if that has anything to do with it at all, but I’ve always loved greens. I don’t make a good plant mom…but I adore embracing Mother Natures gifts to the world. (✿◠‿◠)
(I realized after taking these that they didn’t allow photos….oopsie! Hehehe!)
A long time obsession of mine…CANDLES. I fell in love with these soy candles are from RX Candles. I couldn’t say no! They had a great deal going on – You got to pick 1 large and 2 small candles for $25! They’re available at their own website, as well as Amazon. They have a wide range of scents that are perfect for Spring and Summer! They smell like a tropical paradise. They are beautiful and unique. The one’s I got were: Fresh Fig, Bora bora, and Plumeria.Some pretty soaps from the Mai Do store in JapanTown. ♡Some homemade bows. ♡ OF COURSE I BOUGHT A SAILOR MOON ONE. If you know me at all, you know that I adore Sailor Moon. Not only because, why not? But because it was the very first anime I ever watched. For the longest time during my childhood I would go by the name Luna, like the cat. It will always hold a special place in my heart.(Above – Me – In my natural habitat – the manga section)Yasssssss! Manga galore!Cute finds. ♡The Saturday that I went was the last day the Hello Kitty truck was going to be there. I’m so glad I caught a glimpse of it! ♡ We didn’t order anything from there because to be truthful, it was hot and all we wanted was ice cold water. But it was cute from afar!
I hope you enjoyed this post about my well-spent day at the Cherry Blossom Festival! I can’t wait to see what next year is like. Until next time ~じゃあね!
