A day of triumph. My iPhone magically decided it WAS going to be backed up. Which means I finally get to give the NEW new operating system a go. I am feeling excited to choose my own background.

1.5 days!

condo shopping

Future home?

I guess you need savings to do something like buying a condo. Fingers crossed g-pa's land sale goes through next month. maybe i should start buying lotto tickets.

in iPhone photos- Montreal

Long weekend in Montreal. I didn't really actually do much of anything in particular, except catch up with friends and eat out, a LOT, and do some yoga and window shopping. I promise I did stuff last time.

So, I also didn't bring my camera around with me and even forgot my iPhone on our 8km trek to Chinatown (where were ran into a Taiwanese celebration) and the Old Port. Here are a few random snaps I did get.

St Viateur bagels- I trekked across town for these, all because my sister wanted some real Montreal bagels. She better bring me back something nice from Mexico... buying Corona in Ontario doesn't really count.

This place seriously was COOL. Hard to describe but they had these long skinny spatulas that held a bunch of the bagels in the oven, and would pull the freshly baked bagels out and dump them into that pile you see in the back left. The smell in there was amazing.

My first macaron experience. Little disappointed at the lack of classy packaging. To be honest, they were just ok. The salted caramel was delish and the pistachio was pretty decent, but I wouldn't spend that much on them on a regular basis. And the other flavours, not at all.

The hill Katrina walks up for school every day. It's bigger than it looks, and the mountain was so pretty with all the changing leaves.

This photo magically appeared on my phone, no idea how i captured it.. but it's cool.

So, there you have it. A fabulously relaxing weekend away. Good times. Thanks for playing host, Katrina!

holga love

I unknowingly first fell in love with holga over at Vero's blogspot, without even really knowing (gasp!) what a holga was. So ignorant. Then, wasting time (I mean, importantly sightseeing) in Montreal at Urban Outfitters, I stumbled upon the lo-fi camera display. It all clicked. THIS was the Holga in all it's glory.

So, I hit up eBay and shall be receiving my new baby in 10-14 days. Beyond excited. Should be interested since I have limited film experience. I'm already planning my next lomo purchase (a Diana+ for those "dreamy" shots), so lets hope I don't suck at film photography. 

I'll leave you with a few holga images from etsy. Click the picture to be taken to the etsy store.

Stay tuned for some shots of my own...

as much as I like the song teenage dream, hearing it 4 times at work between the start of the day and lunch is a bit excessive. Damn you, radio.
