Guess what? I made a new blog on WordPress with my friends.
The blog will be photography based with a mix of our life, food, scenery, and the places we will go. We will be posting about tutorials about the cameras we own, how to use them and on and on. We will be doing plenty of photo shoots this summer.
I hope to print our work and sell it to friends, building up our clients and to do well as a photographer. I also know of a ton of places that we can venture to and do different types of working the angles, lighting and making great photographs.
Here is the link; LA Snapshots Photography There will be new posts there as soon as we do photo shoots!
Don’t worry, I will be still working on my blog; tribeccarandomthoughts. It’s still my main priority but I do want to make sure both blogs excel!
From the previous post, I had gone inside a super cute café which has a tea party inspired décor. Their main sell is cookies. They also have ice cream as a menu item. They serve coffee and hot tea, hot cocoa, quart bottles of milk and lemonade. Below are two collages I made. The first post is of the many flavors of cookies they had in store. Plus, they make them fresh there, their back part of the store was like a mini bakery. The fun thing I liked was that we were sitting next to the merchandise. They had hats and shirts there, with their logo on it.
Each display case with cookies had a little tag telling customers what they were looking at. On the first row on top was cinnamon sugar, mint chocolate and oatmeal chocolate chip. The lower row has rocky road, gluten free chocolate chip, and gluten free lemon sugar. The right hand side has oatmeal raisin, banana spilt, and lemon blueberry.
In the top left corner of this collage, it was my order with my friend. Our order was a banana spilt and mint chocolate. The banana spilt ingredient’s are complete with banana dough, butterscotch, chocolate, walnuts, and topped with fresh strawberries. The mint chocolate ingredient’s are Andes mints wrapped in chocolate dough. The iced mocha was a bit watered down with the included ice but my friend like the drink more than I did.
The feature image was taken by me using my phone. The image is a picture of a picture. I took a picture with my phone of my camera on the table of our dessert. They had old tables and chair inside, like a dessert bar going back to the past. It was one of the prettiest café I have been to. Have you been here before? It’s in Los Angeles. It’s address is 5466 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles 90036. Their website is: Milk Jar Cookies website
Next to one of my favorite soon to be gone fandom stores, there was a desserts place I found. That place’s name is Milk Jar Cookies. Their website is; Milk Jar Cookies .
The exterior was really pretty. The interior was welcoming and very nice. Outside there is a standing chalkboard that tells you of their specials. Once you go inside, you look up to see the menu and prices for cookies and ice cream. Also as soon as you enter, there is a refrigerator that has beverages like milk, tea and lemonade. They also serve coffee. They have tables and chairs if you choose to order and enjoy it there.
The cookies are on full display. Some of the flavors I saw and made a collage above these words are; peanut butter, gluten free chocolate chip, white chocolate raspberry, chocolate pecan caramel, and mint chocolate. There are more flavors there but customers present near the display and cashier probably wouldn’t have wanted to move out of my way. But, I’m going to be near this place tomorrow so I can add more pictures to this post.
Have you heard of the company Lush before?
I went to a store location in the Glendale Galleria. It is a pretty store. I managed to take plenty of photos inside. I’ve heard they are known for their bath bombs. They had them on display near the windows and on some of the shelves. There were different sections for skincare, makeup testers, treatments and conditions, get hands on, and hair products.
I saw the display of makeup products and it was amazing! Many of their products were smaller than I assumed but I did like the impact they had. They may be small in size but they had beautiful colors. I’d have to look up their products on their website before I would decide to try them out myself. I have heard their bath bombs are colorful and are pretty cool to use. Have you been to a LUSH store? Here is the website; LUSH .
As for me, I’ve had this blog in my life for about 2 years coming this August. Since I am still venturing the world as a amateur blogger, trying to be a better writer and hoping to be a published author in the future years, and a junior college student who needs to move on to further my education. I’m also somebody who should be learning to drive; which should probably happen later this fall.
I started to think back to when I started school and became a part of the college life. I have grown to be tired of hearing everyone around me asking when I’ll get a job and start earning money.
I am in the beginning process of starting a company/brand with two friends from school, our medium will be photography and our story will be represented by the three of us. We are still working on the name, making a blog to be the base of our website for now, the sizes and prices we can sell our prints, etc.
I’m hoping with the summer months coming up, we can do an arts & craft fair, at least one. I want this to start off as my hobby turned new job venture and then hopefully, it will become something I can make it successful.
This summer, we will be trying to do small photo shoots with various cameras, printing the good results out and selling them to family & friends.
Here’s to new adventures!
I had the greatest pleasure going to the Voodoo Doughnuts! This location is below the food court of the Universal Citywalk, across from the guitar. It will become a popular attraction since I believe most of their other locations are not in California but elsewhere.
Below is the first collage of the interior which to me was the best ever. I didn’t have enough money to buy any merchandise. I would have wanted to buy a t-shirt. I did end up taking a lot of pictures of the interior as well as the selection of the donuts. They had cups, car stickers, travel bottles, a large coffin box that could have over 3 dozen donuts inside, coffee, art, and so much more.
The doughnuts was so good! Although the cereal did taste a little stale, the donut itself was delicious. They had a big variety and if you can’t decide what to choose; you have the option to let them choose the doughnuts for you! In this 2nd collage, I love the box they put the doughnuts in. They even have their own coffee Stumptown brand inside.
Have you had the chance to visit this place? The prices vary per what doughnut you prefer or want. Enjoy this post!
Have you ever been to Universal Studios Citywalk in Hollywood?
It’s breathtaking to say the least.
This is a collage of some of the stores and the eateries of me going around and about of Universal Citywalk.
There was Popcornopolis, Ludo Bird, Sparky’s, Dodgers, Crepe Café, Socks, and Jamba Juice. There was It ‘Sugar past most of these stores in the collage and the food court (not pictured) was really good; it had Smash Burger, Panda Express, KFC, Pizza Hut, Pink’s Hot Dogs, and more!
