Hey guys! Haven't posted in a while sorry! I was in the 311 class aka super busy freaking photo class! It is break now and I am at my Aunts house in San Clemente. It's my favorite place to be =) My favorite little cousin Hannah is here and she is so adorable. and my aunt and uncle are the coolest ever.
I woke up this morning to a super loud siren going off. Turns out it was a Tsunami warning! For those who don't watch the news or know of this.. There was a HUGE earthquake in Chile Early this morning. It was an 8.8. It was 500 times worse than Haiti. And from that, there is an Tsunami warning all of the pacfic coast. From Mexico to California all the way to Alaska! So Crazy. I think the Earth is mad at all haha. So, my heart goes out to all those who were affected by this. As for you californians like me, the Tsunami is going to hit around 1pm today( feb 27th) but its only going to be around 2-4 feet more of waves than usual. So definitely nothing to be worried about.

I found an awesome recipe for a cookie called " early grey tea cookie". I've yet to make it, but i definitely will soon. It seems so yummy. It's a martha stewart recipe! haha

Here's the recipe! if anyone makes them before I do let me know how it tastes!

12.15am on valentines day.

The day is coming to a close,and i can already feel my eyes shutting! Today was super fun. As said in my previous post, i went to the movies A LOT today. I went to see Valentines day at 10am, then Percy Jackson, the lighting theif at 2.20pm. and then Wolf Man at 9.20pm ! So here are my critiques:

Valentines day- Cute. Realistic. Definitely nothing too hollywood. A good cast, but it wasn't something to die for. I would give it like 5.5 stars

Percy Jackson- Loved it! It was of course, my kind of movie. Action, suspense, a tad bit of romance, and a fun(kid)- packed movie. I'd give it a 7.5.

Wolf man- Okay. So kevin absolutely loved it. it was super gory. Benico Del Toro did a wonderful job. BUT it was so freaking gory that I pretty much closed my eyes fr the most part. For example: a man was run over my a cart and his spin was made into a V shape and you could hear every crack. Another example: the Werewolf's nails tearing apart faces and cutting necks open. So if you're into that ( in which case kevin must be) then its you're kinda movie! For acting,scenes, make-up, plot and so forth i'd give it an 7.5-8. but for my liking..lets just say i'd never see it again haha

Also! Kevin and I went to an awesome little Tapas bar where we got WAYY too much food.

Some of the food we ordered:

-Steamed mussels in a white wine garlic broth
- dates stuffed with almonds and bleu cheese wrapped in bacon
-speck and toast ( proscuitto wrapped garlic with a tomato-like paste on top of toasty cracker)
- Sauteed mushrooms with roasted hazelnuts
-Patatas bravas ( Crisp potato pieces fried with paprika, dipping sauce aioli)
-Risotto with fresh parsley, saffron, and Parmesan cheese.

SO GOOD. the Place is called Cobras Y Matadors. The food is awesome. Our bill was $83.00 total which isn't too bad considering all the food we got. It was a little too LA for me, since i'm used to wooden taverns in spain with loud spanish dancers, but all in all it was a great place to go for tapas and a great day!

So, in 311 it's food week, AKA shot awesome pretty food. I came down to stay with my boyfriend kevin for the weekend, and i know this amazing bakery right down the street from him, so it was perfect! I slept in, which was amazing, and then walked to the bakery to get an iced vanilla latte, cream cheese puff pastry ( so good it should be illegal) and a fruit cream tart in a chocolate heart. I have no lighting equipment whatsoever, but kevin has beautiful window light in his rom about 1pm. So i set up the cute little tart thing on a black reflective plate and started shooting with my 100mm macro lens. I really like how the came out! Super simple but nice ( in my opinion).

So let me know what you think and which one you like better!!

ps. the color might be a little off, but will be fixed!

It's another rainy day in Santa Barbara. A day where I want to lay on the couch all day and read next to a fire or watch House reruns.Sitting with a cup of real hot chocolate and the boyfran. That would be nice. This morning I was stuck in traffic from LA to SB (stayed at kevins) and then had class. Now im sitting in the computer lab printing for a portfolio.

I'm excited for Valentines day =) Kevin and I are going to have a lovely day together. We are going to sleep in ( which is the best gift in itself) make breakfast, and go to the movies all day! Then once we are hungry we will go out to eat somewhere awesome in LA.

YAY! I'm thinking this place called Bangcok West Thai.. any suggestions?
