On Saturday Zoe and I hung out with our friend Stephanie in Little Tokyo in L.A.. it ended up being a beautiful day with great weather which made the outing better.
I have to say one of the best things about L.A. is that there is a variety of cool neighborhoods to go explore in; and Little Tokyo is definitely on my top favorites!
It was nice to get some much needed girlfriend hang time for the both of us. Zoe, Stephanie and I could not be bigger weirdos together. yeah, we are full of silly!
It's pretty neat when my friends are also Zoe's friends I can't be blessed with a better array of girls like this in our lives! it's sooo great to go have fun time with them.
Stephanie is also an amazing voice teacher and is Zoe's voice teacher. Zoe soon will have some great pipes, although she had some pretty good ones to begin with. so if any of you are in need of a good voice teacher in L.A. let me know, I highly recommend her!
i love this picture it's so funny and telling at the same time, i am so petite next to this beautiful 6"1 woman. i look like a little girl next to her, she can crush me!
Pop Killer is a cool shop full of kitschy items, oddities, vintage and local designers.

I'm sure the decor is nothing like Japan, but it's very pretty and full of great treasure seeking shops.
We were on the hunt for cute kawaii stickers, which we all love; your never to old for kawaii stickers! we also found new panda snack flavors, "double chocolate" mmm. and cappuccino sticks! we heart Japanese snacks, they are the best!
I love all the cuteness around. i wanted to take pictures inside some of the shops but sometimes the shop owners get a little crazy paranoid with the picture taking. next time i'll have to just take the risk getting yelled at.
Of course there has to be a Sanrio shop! the items here "seemed" better priced here then in the malls. f.y.i. if you live here or are in town.
Like i said, cuteness even on food machines!
We stepped into what was "makeup heaven" to me. Steph was telling me how great these NYX Cosmetics products are. they are professional quality at a fraction of department store brands price. she knew of no other place around that carried it but here. before she would have to order it on-line.
i am not a big makeup person but when i saw all the amazing colors and different types of makeup you can play around with at BARGAIN prices, i was officially sold on having some fun with it now!
Look at all the pretty eye shadow colors, sigh*. can't wait to come back and buy some.
I ended up getting a rose color lipstick for $3. it went on smooth and matte, great for $3 in my opinion!
We had so much fun!
