Shopping & Sunflowers

I've been meaning to put this post up for quite some time, being that the photos featured were taken over a month ago, but nonetheless I am persisting to post them up as I have intended to for multiple weeks.  Anywho, I went to the launch of the Target + Neiman Marcus collaboration collection for CFDA (that I already posted the things I bought here), which was on December 1, 2012.  It was a lovely event, and I'm glad I decided to attend at Neiman Marcus rather than Target, since the experience was quite pleasant...and we got free cookies (which is always a good thing).  I attended this event with my dear cousin Rowena, and we were there super early so we could get all the things we planned to get (and so we didn't have to wait for ages to get inside).  While at the event, we ran into our friend Valerie of the Valerie Joseph Boutique at Ala Moana Center, who had nearly twice as many bags full of things as we did since her primary goal was to purchase gifts.  It turned out to be a very good shopping experience, although some crazy people felt the need to push and shove their way into getting the things they wanted.  Aside from that, after finishing up our morning at the mall, we decided to go for a drive to the countryside and visit the sunflower fields just to keep the day fun and spontaneous.  It was gusty, full of red dirt, and it was hard not to be bombarded with bees while walking amongst the sunflowers, but being out in the sun was nice.  We only ended up spending less than an hour at the sunflower fields, just enough time to explore and snap a couple photos.  I thought I was cool, and jumped around all "Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon" all over the place, but seriously just looked a fool.  All in all, it was a fun filled random day of shopping and sunflowers.  Photos of my day can be seen below, and were taken by Rowena, Zeric, and myself.  =]

We got Neiman Marcus cookies and water...how cool is that.  I got the green ones.

...and Rowena got the pink ones.

Ran into Valerie of the Valerie Joseph Boutique while shopping.  She definitely outdid us in terms of how much she bought.
