I guess I never mentioned it on this blog, but I had gone to Africa almost a year ago now and I want
to share some of the highlights of the trip. This is a small photo diary of the time I got to spend with some very special people in Tanzania as part of my final year in school.
One of the things I regret most is not having a tangible reflection of an amazing memory… A trip to Japan last year I picked up the FujiFilm Intax mini 8. Love the quick and easy instant pictures and they’re always a hit with friends and family.
I got it at a discount price and while the camera unit itself isn’t very expensive, it’s the constant need for more film that makes this little guy an investment. But other than that I can’t complain because every time I bring this to an event or party it has been a hit. I loved every minute of the duck faced pouts, the silly photo dives and impromptu giggles it caused.
Any advice on how to show off them polaroids? I’m not a huge fan of having them kept in a book but maybe strung on wall? Comment down below some suggestions! Perfect for a Christmas Gift the to photographer of the family, or a treat for yourself you can find the FujiFilm Intax Mini 8 here.
“from effects of erosive processes in nature as well as from traditional shoe making techniques. Special construction method has been developed and used across the collection. Multiple layersof leather scrap pieces are added on the last and subsequently sanded down to achieve the final shape and unique colour pattern of the shoe. Colour scheme is influenced by old geologicalmaps.” – Barbora
A truly riveting and inspiring collection influenced by the sediments of the earth, Barbora Vesela delivers it in the prettiest delicate forms from leather scraps. A beautifully produced video shows the unique process of which the sediment type shapes are formed onto the shoes as well as the labour intensive process of creating made to order. If you’re one to want unique shoes that no one else has these should definitely be on the top of your wish list! No two pairs are the same, even each foot with its own differences these will for sure be a prized item in the closet.
Having moved to Montreal recently for a footwear design internship, its been quite the change from comfortable and homey Ottawa. I secured a place downtown, right off of St. Catherine-Ouest and the ever bustling city is filled with chatter and car noises.
Over the past few weeks the sound of french has become comforting and is bringing back the many hours spent in french immersion during high school, which I still firmly believe I did not learn anything in regards to being bilingual (though I have a certificate that says otherwise). Everything is so new, not knowing anyone in the city but thankfully I have some amazing friends who visit me from Ottawa and over the long weekend we got up to a lot of shenanigans exploring the city together. Never have I walked so much, biked until the pain of the potholes still linger and eat such delicious food.
Second season boarding and not to brag but I think I’ve improved a lot since last season! Finally got my first board a gorgeous GNU B-Nice, paired with Ride bindings and Burton Mint boots; I’ve essentially been out on the hills every weekend. School or no school, snowboarding definitely took priority. With that, I managed two trips to Tremblant, which was some of the best boarding ever! I think I can confidently say that Tremblant is one of the best hills on the east coast. Hopefully next year it will be Whistler but here’s a look back at some of the moments captured with my new toy of the new year, the GoPro Hero 4 Silver!

Holiday nails in a festive plaid as part of the countdown to Christmas! Can’t believe Christmas is only 3 days away and I still haven’t completed all my holiday shopping (eeek!). Anyone else scrambling to get those last minute holiday things done as well?

Whew! First semester of my final year is officially over! More time for portfolio and fun things like this highly neglected blog for one. Super sorry for the lack of DIY posts guys, it’s just been super hectic! I’ll try to shoot as many as possible over the Christmas break to have things lined up in the new year.
I’ve been searching high and low for my body chain supplies and finally found all of it this morning so what better way to celebrate my first day off in ages than to make a little something special for myself? (I did a post on body chains wayyyyyyy back when here) Delicately chic, it can be worn over or under clothing. I wish I had this over the summer but am looking forward to wearing this for the winter months over sweaters and layered pieces. This body chain DIY took me all of ten minutes to make, most of the time just measuring the desired length of the chain.
Whew! Already November and the first semester of my final year is flying by! It has been quite the chaotic semester and it’s been hard keeping on top of blogging but I shall try my best!
These nails, inspired by my good friend Alex are so chic! Simple and super easy, this reverse french mani will have them compliments hitting you left, right and center! I used Essie polishes, Penny Talk and Stylenomics; both perfect for the fall weather. I love the deep green jewel tone of Stylenomics, has been ready and excited for the holiday season to start! What colours will you be doing this manicure in?
