Carnaval no Rio!

Hey lovely peeps!

Shelly sent this to me while we were supposed to be studying a few days ago and it is really amazing! I might be going to Rio de Janeiro sometime soon, so I have a particular HUGE interest in it.

Check it!

This weekend was good to me.

movin' too fast ;)
 YUMmy Indian food... curry and a dosa.  It's a rice flour crepe filled with yummy roasted veggies and chutney and the two sauces were delicious.  The white definitely had some coconut in it.  I had the left-overs today for lunch :).
 My beautiful partner in crime, Shelly.
 Shelly's tasty shrimp mmmm

Lake Berryessa

These are some pictures I took this weekend.  The first is what I wore to go out in Friday night.  I just got those Betsy Johnson wedges & I love them.  The foody pictures are from dinner with Shelly on Saturday after we had tired ourselves out frolicking and capturing it on film (or digitally I suppose).  And the last two pictures are from a hike some of my roommates and I went on Friday morning.  It was so hot!  The back of my neck even got a little sunburnt!  It's such a beautiful lake and a really fun climb.  My booty is still sore from all the uphill haha.

Cheers to a great weekend, cheers to a good school week, and cheers to me getting to see Tyson next weekend.  Life is good :)

How were your weekends?

I love DANCE!

Just taking a bit of a study break to be inspired by this amazing dance piece.  I have my hip-hop class tonight and this makes me so so so excited for it!  I can't wait to dance my yayas out!  I have been studying all day! 

Its long, but it's worth watching the whole thing.

Beautiful Bride








These are pictures I took of my beautiful friend Jahlelah before her wedding.  I didn't want to post them before the wedding because her dress was being kept a secret from the groom.  She looks absolutely gorgeous!  CONGRATULATIONS LOVE!

Jahlelah and Lance's Wedding!!!



Getting ready!

 Check yourself :)

 A few of the bridesmaids and the bride:  Dani, Jahlelah, Ada, and Aleah
 The LOVELY bride-to-be

 This one is my favorite.  The henna on her hands was supposed to look like gloves.  It was sooo beautiful!








 Bridesmaid... cheerleaders?  haha, we were just being silly

 Vows





It was such a fun wedding. It was half Western themed, half Carnival themed.  Tyson was my date and he even danced with me!  We did square dancing and ate pizza and cotton-candy.  And it was so special to be standing up there with all the other bridesmaids, supporting one of my best friends on her big day!  I have known the groom for even longer than the bride because I grew up with his younger sister so it was a very homey wedding. 

I hope you enjoy the pictures!  I still have to post some of Jahlelah's wedding dress that I took last weekend.
