Sushi Snapshots




Had to show off the quality of my new Samsung “smart camera” (wi-fi compatible, pretty nifty). In a previous post I mentioned choosing between Nikon and canon, but as you can see I didn’t go with either.
Anyways, mixed it up a little for Christmas dinner with sushi (homemade, thanks Pops!)..No raw fish for me though! These babies are filled with avocado, bell pepper, carrot, green onion, and pickled ginger. ๐Ÿ’ฎ

And then here’s me Christmas afternoon, playing around with the new cam (makeup free, might I add).. Thank goodness for a mini tripod and timer!



Poppin’ tagz


Sorry Macklemore, but I liked thrift shopping before it was cool. First of all I love the cheap prices (no reason to go broke in order to look fab!), and second of all, you never know what you may find! The fact that 90% of the store items are hideous make a great find that much more exciting. Plus, UO (Urban Outfitters, duh!)/ D.I. (Deseret Industries.. Not so duh).. Once the outfit is on, can anyone really tell a difference? Happy shoppen.. Goood luckkk! โœจ

Ethnic Eats

Contrary to popular belief, I go to a school with a pretty diverse student body (especially considering the area!), which I think is so great. ๐ŸŒ I’m sure the fact that I spent my younger years in some pretty neat places has something to do with my enthusiasm at meeting friends of different cultures, and I am just fascinated by some of the people I have been lucky enough to get to know! Anyways, a perk of having all kinds of friends is the chance to try all kinds of new foods, I mean that’s the best part, right?!

Here’s a picture of some pretty bomb curry I made with an Asian friend of mine (he’s actually from NYC.. That’s as exotic as it gets right?!)
Not only did this provide me with a delicious, hot, restaurant- style meal, but I was able to use up a bunch of perishable groceries as well, it being the end of the semester and all. Can I get a, “win-win”?! ๐Ÿ˜‰



And, speaking of different kinds of foods.. Vegan food counts as a different culture right, I mean that’s as weird as it gets..?! ๐Ÿ˜›




Shoutout to the Christmas lights at temple square! Forgot how beautiful Salt Lake City is this time of year. I love to see the temple, and I love having the gospel in my life to keep me in track with prioritizing/ decision- making and simply trying my hardest to be the best that I can be!

PS~ and I love reuniting with friends (as seen in pic #2). Having moved way more than the average bear (haha who says that๐Ÿป) I get plenty of opportunities to catch up with- and miss- dear friends of mine. Yay!
