Mango Lassi


My mom brought two mangoes for me to eat while I’m studying. I turned them into mango lassi. Added one cup of plain lowfat yogurt, a tsp of honey, two tbsp sugar, 1/4 tsp cardamom powder, and 1 tsp rosewater.

Michelle gave us the turtles. She got them in Mexico. So cute!!


Last Brunch


Last fancy brunch with my roomies before they go off to California to study for our board exam. We got the recipes from a brunch book. The eggs were perfect but the ham and toast felt like they were missing something… Tomatoes!


China Glaze: Concrete Catwalk, Luxe and Lush


Podcasting lectures and painting nails: it’s like prescribing sildenafil for a patient with pulmonary arterial hypertension and erectile dysfunction, assuming that’s a very satisfying feeling.

Colors are China Glaze Concrete Catwalk (gray) and China Glaze Luxe and Lush (glitter). Been wanting to find a perfect creme and glitter combination for a while.


Air-Dry Postcards


This wall has felt blank ever since I moved in all my furniture. I thought of hanging up a picture, but why hang up one when I can hang fifteen?

Paintings by Edward Hopper, one of my favorite painters.
