Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream @ Ice Cream Lab | California Food Diaries 2016

Ice Cream Laboratory – Liquid Nitrogen Ice Cream Liquid nitrogen ice cream – a concept I had never heard about before going to The Ice Cream Lab in Little Tokyo, Los Angeles. The Ice Cream Lab lets customers pick base flavours and toppings to be added to a liquid nitrogen mixture, producing smooth, creamy ice cream with tons of customizable options!

Shin-sen-gumi Hakata Ramen & Wandering Around Little Tokyo, Los Angeles

Shin-Sen-Gumi Hakata Ramen Welcome to another edition of ~Sachie’s California Food Diaries!~ Today, we’re going to take a look at some delicious Japanese ramen from Shin-sen-gumi. With a few locations throughout LA, Shin-sen-gumi Hakata Ramen is the go-to, hotspot location for authentic Japanese Ramen! The little Tokyo location was absolutely packed during the Anime Expo weekend, so we decided to return the week after. You may remember my trip to the Fountain Valley location by Huntington Beach last year! That post actually came in handy because I remember I really liked my order, and I’m glad I wrote it down.

Smashbox Photo Matte Eye Palette & Mascara Review & Swatches

Enhance Your Eyes With Smashbox Cosmetics I’ve heard many a blogger sing praises about Smashbox products, from their holy-grail primers to their coveted lip products.

I’ve received sample sizes of their eye and face primers through Sephora and ispy Glam Bags, which I absolutely loved but eventually lost because the travel tubes were so tiny. I think I may have just died and gone to heaven when the mail man knocked on my door and presented me with a of Smashbox goodies! Today I’ll be reviewing…
