My job requires me to be out of the house before the sun even comes up, which means I feel super lethargic and sleepy when i’m getting ready for the day. I prep all my things the night before so I can stay in bed as long as possible and just roll out once my alarm goes off. (Especially now that the weather is chillier and beds just feel SO AMAZINGLY WARM!)
As I type this i’m starting at a pug in a coffee shop and I wish I was it. Carefree, tongue lolling out of its mouth like it never had a worry in it’s life. And why would it, it’s a dog! They literally have the best lives.
It’s been a whirlwind month over here. I started teaching full-time again and found a brand new appreciation for going to bed at 9:30pm (as if I needed another excuse to tuck in early!). It’s been tiring, but really great. It’s also reminded me how much I miss photography. I feel like this will be the forever tug-of-war I struggle with- one way leaning to education, the other to capturing beautiful images. (Still searching for a career that let’s me do both…anyone?!)
I managed to take some shots a weekend ago though. S came down to visit and we spent some time updating her photos for an upcoming project. I love how they turned out! A little bit fashion forward, a little classic- S is such a natural beauty, it’s so easy to photograph her 🙂
Once I settle into a more comfortable teaching routine, I’m totally going to seek out more photography opportunities!

When Glossier announced they were (finally!!) shipping to Canada, I basically just handed them my credit card. Ok not true. I did A TON of research first, as -hopefully you’ve gathered – I like to be really informed about the stuff I purchase. Then when the shipping floodgates opened I couldn’t have hit order fast enough because I knew exactly what I wanted.
One of the nice things about our city is the beautiful Detroit skyline just across the river. At sunset and night when the lights are all lit, it looks incredible! And it’s even cooler to see the skyline from 30 stories high. These shots are from a few weeks back.
I spent a stress-free two weeks in Romania a few months ago. It was spring and the summer flowers were just starting to bloom, the cuckoo birds were singing in the country side, the atmosphere was peaceful. I drank coffee in the garden and binge-read The Idiot most days.
Before leaving for Canada we spent two days in Timisoara wandering around the stone building streets, the air thick with humidity and pre-summer excitement. I ate too many sweets and acquired a deep distrust for pigeons. They’re sneaky!
Besides this I won’t go into too much detail; instead I’ll show you a quick snapshot of what my trip looked like!
It’s been a HOT MINUTE since i’ve posted here. My apologies. I’ve had lots of things swirling around lately that have put this tiny blog in the back of my mind. But i’m back, and I have two travel diaries to share with you!
Whenever I want to buy a new product, I do research on it. A lot of research. It’s easy to be fooled into buying things that promise beautiful skin or hassle-free, shiny….(insert whatever you want) because that’s exactly what you’re looking for, so you fall prey to advertising. I won’t pretend I’m an expert shopper in any sense of the word because everyone who knows me knows that sometimes I buy things that I really don’t need (like black shirts with odd, New-Wave quotes on them). But i’ve gotten smarter! Every stumble is a chance at change (groaaaaaan!)
Happy first day of Spring! What are you up to? I have the windows open while I clean and dream about the moment I can start wearing springier clothing! (Is that a word…?) What’s on your Spring wardrobe list? Here are a few things i’m looking forward to wearing this season…
