Weekend Snapshots

December 28, 2012

hope you all had a lovely christmas – i spent it back at home in atlanta with my friends and family. of course there was lots of food involved, especially since it was my birthday i didn't hold back (time to get back to my healthy eating habits!) i can't believe we are only a few days away from ringing in the new year! i wanted to say thank you to everyone who has contributed to my feeding american food drive, i am so close to reaching my $1,000 goal and couldn't be so close without your help – only $175 left!


on another note i'll be featured in one of my favorite newsletters, i heart luxe, in 2013! i am really excited to be apart of it and if you haven't joined the newsletter yet please go sign up now! it's a great way to discover everything from fashion and decor to food and travel, you won't be disappointed.

Kyoto, Japan [Part Two]

December 21, 2012


we had some tasty udon right before we visited the kiyomizu-dera temple – the temple was heavily crowded (on a thursday), which was a bit of a disappointment, but it was a great view of the city. i know people love kyoto for the temples and shrines but my favorite part was nishiki market! lots and lots of food, more so groceries than a street food type of market. some of the vendors let you sample their food which was a nice little perk to help us decide if we wanted to buy!

Kyoto, Japan [Part One]

kyoto was a beautiful city, i had heard so many great things about it from friends and got some awesome travel tips from jeanine. i really enjoyed the contrast of roaming around kyoto versus the crowded streets of tokyo. there are so many temples and shrines in kyoto it was impossible to see them all while we were there. here are some pictures from our visit to the fushimi inari-taisha shrine and walking around the streets of kyoto.

Happy Weekend!

Osaka, Japan | Yamazaki Distillery

December 12, 2012


if you know me personally you'll know that i don't drink, but when all your travel buddies are excited about yamazaki whisky we had to make a trip to the distillery. while the tour itself wasn't that exciting (they provided english translator headsets but the audio was much longer than the physical tour itself) it was a beautiful space that i loved photographing.

you can't be a food lover and not visit the tsukiji fish market right? my friends and i woke up at 4am to check this out, although i have to admit i was a little disappointed because you don't get a whole lot of information from the tuna auction. however it was still a sight to see.

i can't believe its been over a month since i left for japan and taiwan. it was such an amazing trip, i don't even know where to begin! japan was absolutely amazing, i really wish i was able to spend more time there, note to future japan travelers 10 days is not enough! i was drawn to the people, the food (not surprisingly) and their efficiency. i'll be sharing a few pictures from my trip over the next few weeks – i hope you enjoy them!

one of my favorite meals in tokyo was from a little hole in the wall ramen place. you ordered the ramen at a vending machine and it disposed a ticket that you gave to a waiter standing by. it was the most delicious ramen – and the egg was so amazing.

A Birthday + Holiday Wish

December 04, 2012

it's hard to believe another year is passing and my birthday is approaching in 16 days! since it's around the holidays most people tend to be traveling or with their families. but luckily i don't need much i just want good company and delicious food and that pretty much makes my birthday complete. this year, i want something a little different. together with the support of you, my friends and family – i want to raise $1,000 for feeding america.

you all know how much i love my food and i've been fortunate enough to never have to worry about food on the table. millions of americans are struggling with hunger everyday. did you know that most individuals struggling with hunger aren't homeless or in poverty? feeding america is the nation's leading domestic hunger-relief charity. they help feed america's hungry through food banks and engaging our country in the fight to end hunger. you can read more about feeding america's mission here.

my hope is that with your help we can feed those in need this holiday season and throughout the year. please join me and help me make my birthday complete by donating to my virtual food drive. i really appreciate your help in supporting this cause – thanks!
