Une Petite Ville Qui S'appelle Davis.



I visited the charming city of Davis, California over the weekend with my lovely friend Sheeva and her husband Chris. Since I'm going to school there in the fall, they gave me a tour of the campus and the downtown area. I must say: I have fallen in love with the quaint little stores and the endless rows of bicycles. Did you know that Davis is known as the bicycle capital of America? I believe that the bicycle population in Davis outnumbers that of cars! I haven't gone bicycle-shopping quite yet, but I can't wait! As I was walking along the tree-lined streets, I spotted the most adorable little boutique called Pinkadot. Isn't the name just darling? I ended up purchasing the Lollia perfume that you see above. It's such an enchanting fragrance-- flowering willow and lotus. And I just love the scripty, romantic bottle design.. Ahh, pretty fragrances, pretty boutiques, pretty trees.. All in a pretty town. Oh, I just can't wait for school to start. :)

anh, this is so hard. i thought i was the crazy one trying to explain it. but you understood exactly what i was trying to say. so yes, i would like to put the two together...but how? that is the question now.
and yes, they are the same ones. i like to put flowers in my room but then i always end up bringing them back downstairs because if they are in my room...i forget to water them. haha
