Chills the entire time.


Took a mental health day today in order to
 regain whatever sanity I maintain.
Cooked a beautiful meal, drank some good wine,
and tried to do nothing else. 




oh mama, I wanna go camping

Stumbling upon the collective that is Kinfolk, a magazine developed by
a bunch of wonderful people sharing the same beautiful intentions, was like 
stumbling into an inspiring daydream composed of everything we love. 
It got me fantasizing about West Coast camping trips, and making 
meals, and playing music with friends. 
And goddamn am I ever going to manifest these things
 into reality with all my might. 


Kale, tofu & feta salad and the natural light i'm missing.
Henri Fantin-Latour

Lately, I have realized I miss one thing exponentially, that being natural light.
I love the small house that I have accommodated since September, don't get me wrong
 but when it comes down to it, I miss the sky lit rooms of my old log cabin.
On my last day off I went to see 'Big Bang' an art showing at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts.
This was my second time at the showing which allowed me to indulge a little more in the art pieces.
 The one I personally loved was Geneviève Cadieux photographic exposition, 'Marfa'. It displayed a photograph of a stormy plain in black and white, and then one in color on the opposing wall.
Something special in its simplicity.

Perma-bedhead, making good meals, acquiring money, 
being in love, fancy toiletries, buying plane tickets.


candy for the ears

I have been pretty busy lately and it seems like this last week just passed in one delirious sweep because of having a cold. I got to see Real Estate live, and go to the Contemporary Art Museum (again)
 but those are the general highlights in between university and work. 
Dreaming of New York in February, a summer on the west coast
and Berlin in the fall. Photos coming soon, stay tuned.
Over and out.



everyday is saturday

Here's a picture of me and my pony by photographer Jennifer Dickinson.


sandy candy

These are some of my recent favourites taken by photographer 
and mutual friend Sandy KimThey are yellow and pretty, 
and remind me of my friends and why being young is so fun.
I even just came across an article posted by The Fader comparing 
Rihanna's "We Found Love" video to Sandy's photo diary. Funny. 
Read it here.



Although I unfortunately never really got into LCD Soundsystem past the extent of 
having All My Friends and Dance Yrself Clean on repeat throughout the years,
there's definitely no denying the magnitude of them.
And much like the aforementioned songs, the trailer for 
a film documenting their retirement has also been on repeat.

Max Fargo and Maya Villiger teamed up to photograph and film 
the Closed Campaign for S/S12. Not only did they scout people from 
all over the globe, they all were 'real people'.
When watching these short segments you can't help but feel as if you
 knew them, or that if you were in the Mojave desert you would be 
comfortable swimming in the pool and eating
 banana's right along side them.

All riled up over cool design, jeez.
Images above courtest of PASS PORT
Today, while I was looking at my favourite men's blog MAKR I stumbled upon a
 video they had published of PASS~PORT, a skateboard brand based out of Australia. 
While I watched I began to feel nostalgic for skateboarding culture and began to reminisce 
about how it affected my life, even though I couldn't skate myself.

When I was 13, we would hang out at the skate park everyday, and (probably so I could impress my future boyfriends) I started learning the names of different professional skateboarders, the various companies they skated for, and on occasion would watch skate videos in the basements of my friends houses. It took me awhile to recognize the connection of how all of these faces were creators, as well as 'skaters'. The first artist I recognized was Ed Templeton. His Company 'Toy Machine' was probably the first label I was able to identify (the one-eyed drawings) and my biggest skateboard boy crush Leo Romero, was also sponsored by his company. I later found out about Templeton being intrinsically entwined with other major artists from the 90's when I watched the documentary 'Beautiful Losers'.

Anyways, the point is that skateboard culture was my first look into the collaborative arts world, and I will forever be endowed to the memory of the sunny days on the cement whilst swapping saliva.

young hustle

I've been on the OF train since the damn near beginning.
(see here)
And truth be told I even shed a few tears when Tyler got his Moonman. 
Because these kids inspire me. And even though they're a bunch of
shitheads, they're young and constantly creating. 
And I like that.



Sometimes I wonder what it is exactly that makes me adores neutrals so,
but sometimes it only takes a few images (such as these) to remind me of its subtle allure.
