Visual Stories


Hi poptarts! Despite being out last night, doing a little of this:

Gettin' it.

I woke up at 6:30am wanting to tell you all about it!

Thursday started off as any class-ridden day starts– with a little breakfast love:

Cereal mish-mosh with strawbeezies.

I then packed up for several hours of classes. Packing a lunch? Old-school and oh-so-necessary:

Bagel thin sando with carrots.

To continue the carrot theme of lunch, I had a little gem for dessert:

Carrot cake Larabar!

Holy spit! The carrot cake flavor is yet another one that isn’t released until July, which is so unfortunate because this tiny nugget of a Larabar was packed with carrot, pineapple, walnuts, raisins and coconut. Gasm!

Like a good student, I attended my classes and participated. (Participating makes class significantly more enjoyable.) I even attended a journalism symposium:


Much to my dismay, it was a seminar for photographers:


It was about how to tell a visual story. Now, by no means do I consider myself to be a photographer. Any number of my photos will prove this. I do, however, like to think that I can tell a visual story.

Take dinner, for example. Hannah and I went to Rio Grande, where I ordered a “salad”:



The visual story: I’m good at eating.

We also sipped these suckers:

How adorable is she?

The visual story: Danger.

Later in the evening, after changing our ‘fits, we met some friends and drooled over a bartenderrr:

Bananster and moi.

Le crew.

He made us drinks, to drink, we drunk ’em. And then we got down:

And now I know he thinks I'm cool.

For those of you who’ve danced with me before, you know I can go from this:


To this:

Also normal.

In seconds:


That’s how I win men over. Not.

The visual story: I’m your woman if you want to get low on the dance floor.

I’ll leave you with perhaps my favorite picture of the evening:


The visual story: ___________. Fill in the blank, your pregunta del dia!

Ciao for now,


P.S. How I’d fill in the blank: Back off!

    Two words: “Creep attack”!!! ha, love the pics. Its so funny to see a night out progressing from “respectable on leaving the casa” to photos that look like they could be DUI photos! That carrot cake lara sounds yum! now i have a craving for carrot cake, but never heard of carrot cake and pineapple??? mmmmmmm carrot cake. xxxxxxxxx

      Fi- In my defense, I woke up feeling refreshed, not DUI-worthy.

  5. The visual story: SnackFace’s SugaDaddy.

    I seriously wish I had your life. I live in the best city in the world, for chrissakes, and my nights never look as fun as yours!!

    I said this on your last post, but I am SO JEALOUS of your sneak peek at the new Laras. I think I’m more excited for their release than anything else this summer. Maybe that’s overdoing it haha.

    Have a great weekend love!!

  6. The visual story: i’m not your woman if you are over the age of 40 with gray hair and wrinkly balls.

  7. carrot cake larabar?!? yum!

  11. 12 Katherine

    girl, your skin is beautiful! it’s flawless! may i ask what face wash and lotion you use? or maybe i should just ask what the secret is!

    ps: there seem to be a bunch of creepy, old men at your school. i had the same “problem” when i was in college. it makes for some funny situations though

    • 13 snackface

      Katherine- Why, thank you, sugar! I really need to get around to a full skin post, but I’ll share! I wash my face twice a day. In the morning I wash with Aveeno Clear Complexion Cream cleanser, sweep over my face with Neutrogena toner (something specific for acne, forget the exact name) and finish with Clearasil SPF 15 moisturizer. At night, I use the first two same products, but use a CVS night moisturizer for preventing acne. The key ingredient in all? Salicylic acid. Now, when a heifer of a zit starts to form, I use Preparation H gel on the zit until it goes away. It sounds crazy, but it works! That’s about it! They say you should drink a lot of water, etc., but I’m really bad about that.

  12. mmm….carrot cake larabar! where did you get it??

    Fill in the blank: Mustache or not, you’re a perv.
