the weekend

I dusted off my film camera to take some pictures over the weekend, except that it took so long for me to finish the roll that I ended up having two weekends’ worth of photos. I know that I’ve posted similar photos to Instagram already, so if you happen to follow me there, sorry! So, a little peek into my life. Or, rather, my life during daylight hours.


Skates are hung up for the season. RIP!


We finished up a huge batch of totes for Summerland. I got to use my lips purse (from Aldo) for the first time (I had originally purchased it in hot pink but this is a little more appropriate for me).




Ugh, winter. I’ve been getting a lot of use out of this.


Testing out my Thief & Bandit pillows on Erin’s sofa since hers is much nicer than mine and I had picked up the inserts for them while on my way to her place.


Erin’s apartment is so nice. Katie gave her that bowl.


I cut out this fabric to make a light jacket back in December, cut the linings last weekend, and have yet to start sewing it, mostly because I’m afraid it’s going to look like a lab coat. Shades of this Alyson Provax print I have hanging in my apartment.





I spent a Sunday working at Robber and when I had a few quiet moments I tried on clothes, including these sweatshirts from BASE Range out of Copenhagen. Who knew I would ever call a sweatshirt pretty?


I am no Phoebe Philo but when I saw these Liberty X Nike sneakers, I really wanted them! Last year I vowed that if I went to the gym regularly I would treat myself to a pair of Nike Frees, and even though I did go regularly I never bought the shoes. I just kept admiring other people’s brightly-coloured Frees. I’m pretty glad I waited until I found the perfect pair for me. Love the watercolour floral and the peach accents.


At the library. This branch (Gladstone) is such a funny mix of old & new.


Flowers from Sweet Woodruff, a thoughtful gift from Geoff.


Visiting Katie in her new apartment.


Treats from Nad├Ęge. So good.

  1. I love these images, mostly because they are so familiar. Local blogs are always this mixture of strange familiarity for me - images of things and places I know, but through different perspectives. What's not to love about that? Glad your film camera made it out twice this month.

    1. I think that's really nice! I like when that happens. I recently found a blog that felt so familiar and I couldn't place why, then I saw that she was here.

    1. My machine needs to be fixed too, bummer! I have a loaner but it's not the saaaame. I've been so lazy about sewing but I really want to get back to it! Let's do it TOGETHER.

  7. All these photos have this dreamy quality to them. The places and pieces you pick up make me realize there's so many more places in Toronto I still need to explore, and that really meld with my taste.

    1. Thank you! And yeah that lips purse is a bit silly but I'm glad I have it anyway.

  16. That lip scrub is to die for! It is by far my favorite product from Lush. I found your blog over at Clever Nettle and have really been enjoying your posts, your photography is stunning!

    1. Thanks so much! And yeah, I'm not a huge Lush fan but I really do love those lip scrubs (I have Sweet Lips as well and it's so nice and caramel-y).
