Two weeks in Romania: a photo diary

Where my Eyes Go | Windsor, Ontario Lifestyle Photographer | Timisoara, RomaniaI 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!

Life Lately: Detroit

Where My Eyes Go | Windsor Ontario Photographer | Detroit | ASHE Supply Co.I’m in a photo-taking season right now and it feels so great to be behind the lens again! So far, every weekend has taken me somewhere I wanted to snap a few photos and i’ve been collecting the little solo shots from here and there to compile into a bigger post.

On the Road: Denver, CO

Travel and ideas

Inspiration from traveling to Europe | Where my Eyes go blog

Two months ago I was in Europe. A small group including myself went to Slovakia to teach at an English camp for a week then toured around the area and visited Budapest for a few days after that. I had a blast! Teaching was super fun and exhausting and rewarding and exploring new places was equally so.

Packing: Colorado

Where my Eyes go blog | Windsor Lifestyle | Packing for a trip |This week i’m off to Colorado with D and good friends and i’m super excited! I’ve never seen The Rocky Mountains up close so that is going to be amazing as well as traveling through beautiful, rugged, landscapes, trying the food culture in Denver, and just enjoying being somewhere new (because we all need that once in a while!)

I’m also excited because I get to pack.

A beauty trick for in-flight

A beauty trick for inflight | Where my Eyes goThe last last time I flew, I packed a small bag of toiletries with me. It was heavy, bulky, took up space in my backpack and really- if i’m flying for 8 hours why do I need to bring half my bathroom vanity with my in my carry-on? I vowed never to do that again. It was such a pain.

This this time flying, I decided to try and bring only one beauty-related product with me (not including lip balm) to use inflight, one that would moisturize and perk up my tired, dull, airplane skin*: Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask. 

It’s a clear gel-cream face mask/night cream that smells like delicious apricots and really moisturizes skin. About half an hour into flying I slipped to the bathroom and applied it to my face and since it’s clear, no one knew I had anything on my face! I was having a facial in secret!  I had a small bottle left from Christmas and it was the perfect size to slip into the wristlet I keep in my backpack.

This little product is compact, doesn’t take up space and works wonderfully.A little goes a long way too so you have quite a bit left for a while. I will always bring this mini magic potion with me when I travel.



*I have normal/dry skin in general. If you have oily skin, this mask might be too moisturizing for you. But you never know!

Ten photos or less: Toronto

How to spend a day in Toronto | Where my Eyes goOn a whim, a friend and I drove up to Toronto. It was very spur of the moment, like throw-some-things-in-a-bag-and-go;I didn’t have time to even format memory cards for my camera! So I grabbed an old 4gb card and decided I would try something new:
