hello! so i know how i said i would do a full week of blogmas for christmas, but that just didn't happen for chirstmas eve and christmas day. whoops! i guess i didn't realize how busy i would be. anyways, i hope you all had an amazing christmas. while christmas definitely gets most of the hype this time of the year, you can't foregt about new years. it's one of the few days in the year where wearing too much sparkle isn't a problem, and everything gets reset so you can have a fresh start on all you want to accomplish in the new year. new year's eve is bound to be a fun night wheter you're going out or spending the evening in. so today i want to share something fun you can do on new year's eve to add even more sparkle to your night, taking cool pics with sparklers! i mean, you could totally do this any time of the year, but i think it would be super cute to do for new years.
it's blogmas day 5 (and tomorrow is christmas eve)!!! now that the week is officially over, christmas is soo close. whether you still have some last minute presents to buy or errands to run, we're definitley in the homestretch. while the build-up to christmas is probably my favorite time of the year, christmas morning is obviously magical in its own way. for my family it's usually a chill day spent at home. we wake up, open presents, then make brunch together and just enjoy the day. one of my fave parts of the morning is having brunch together, so i wanted to share a recipe i just conjured up that i think would be absolutely perfect for christmas morning, eggnog pancakes! everybody loves pancakes, and i think even people that don't like eggnog would like these. give them a try this christmas, and maybe even start a new holiday tradition.
happy blogmas day four! there's few things more festive than baking during christmas time, so today i want to share a recipe that i was super excited to try out. to be completely honest, i was kind of nervous they weren't going to turn out right, but they definitley did! these little cakes are soo good. when you're making them, it seems pretty weird, but in the end you get three amazing layers of goodness. i think i also like them because it's not your traditional christmas recipe, or even traditional cake recipe. try something new this season for your holiday baking and have a go at making these!
it's blogmas day 3! today i want to share some pics from an impromptu day trip i went on with my roomie the day after finals. we had something completley different planned for the day, but those plans changed and we decided to do this instead. although completley spontaneous, i'm glad we did it. it was super festive being in a small town, drinking fresh cider and eating warm pie. the best part was that it was actually cold, which isn't really a thing in san diego. all in all, it was a day well spent after a week of test taking.
welcome to blogmas day 2! today i want to share another one of my photography projects. i have to say this one was my favorite projects out of all the ones i did this past quarter. i think i really liked it because it was more of just a random photo shoot, which is what i like to do, instead of a few images that i had to have planned out and then shot. i also loved it because i got to do it with one of my best friends, keeley. i feel like photo shoots are always way more fun when they're with friends. anyways, for this project i had to choose one model and photograph them in different lighting scenarios. some of the instructions were super specific (like they literally told you what kind of light and from what angle to have it), while some allowed for a lot of freedom, which i really liked. here's how they turned out!
i'm shawndiz, a college student in desperate need of a creative outlet. i love all things design worthy and revel in creating and sharing what i find beautiful and interesting in the world. above all i believe that being a busy college student doesn't mean you should sacrifice style.
