so i made macarons... finally.

while at my dads on the weekend, i found the perfect opportunity to bake these little fussy french pastries. 

 (seeing as his stove actually has numbers on it, whereas ours has all of its temperature rubbed off from the decades that it has been around)

i have to say that these definitely take a full day out of your schedule, not too mention your full and utter attention at all times. one wrong move, and they are ruined. 

the recipe relies on its unique, light fluffy chewy texture that is extremely hard to capture if you are not a chef at laduree in Paris. 

mine still didn't turn out the way they should have.... but it was  SO CLOSE! 

next time they will be better, i promise. 

btw we made vanilla frambois buttercream flavor :)  

quite scrumptious. 

what do you see...

a window, a flower & a cup of coffee. 
this is what came out of my first roll of film developed from my diana+ camera.
i really love the mistakes & dreamlike haze and the ghostly images
but it is obvious a few more practice rolls need to be shot so i can get the hang of its cheap plasticy-ness.

Vanessa Bruno Spring Summer 2010.  Video from I love the spontaneity and quirkiness of it. i think this might have just inspired me... i hope this is the kind of day i have today. 


City life, bright lights.

My school, my street, my home.... how could you not love this place?

Im so glad i live here. 

(i am aware that this is total contradiction of my last post) 

country life...fresh air

i find since i have moved to Toronto, I am missing the outdoors and the fresh air SO much. 
running around in bare feet & sundresses. watermelons. lemonade.                       sigh... 


wayyy too much immature fun with a couple birthday balloons.  :)


I LOVE macarons

in a pile of countless other hipster books at urban outfitters... i found this little gem. looking through it made me reminisce of my week in paris.

i want to make vanilla almond flavour...
