Today I’ve decided to take my Sofia Coppola out for some sun. (more…)
This past weekend, I decided that the standard kit lens for the Canon Rebel Xs was no longer producing sharp images. I had already known that it was bad, but I stuck with it for 2 years. Since I shoot a lot of food photography and portraits, I decided to pick up the Canon EF 50 mm f/1.8 lens. It’s relatively cheap at around $100 and can produce sharp images.
Last night I turned to foodnetwork and drooled over the cookies that were being so deliciously displayed…not a good idea. The whole night I was craving cookies and right when I woke up, I decided to make some. Yummmy. The cookie of choice… oatmeal raisin cookies! Everytime I look around food websites or bakeries, I always see oatmeal raisin CHOCOLATE cookies. Unfortunately, I’m not a fan of chocolate mixed in with the oatmeal and raisins. I do love chocolate, but I like to keep such strong flavors separate.
I went to the market the other day, trying to be all fancy and cook dinner for my family. I was also trying to figure out how working women are capable of cooking delicious and healthy meals without burning out from fatigue. Cooking is hard! I don’t even have a job and I spent 6 hours in the kitchen…and I was not just standing around. (more…)
Good morning! Today was the last day of our three day journey. Most of today was spent driving down the famous Pacific Coast Highway. It took a lot longer that way, but we were able to see the beautiful view. (more…)
Here we are on the second day of our wine country road trip. All of us slept well in our little tent and we are ready to move on! (more…)
Today was the first day of our three day journey up to Northern California. (more…)
I pretty much have a love-hate relationship with spring. Around this time of year, my skin gets really itchy. A little eczema here, a lot of eczema there. Even worse, my face gets strange itchy bumps that I’ve neglected to get checked for 2 years now. But I refuse to say a bit of itchiness dispels all my happiness from this season. Afterall, it is spring for goodness sake. Flowers here! Flowers there! Flowers everywhere! So lovely! And so I’ll just have to be itchin’ myself as I enjoy the pretty pop of colors.
It’s time to go home. It was a sad departure from Montreal but we were still happy to get back to our warm Californian winter.
Here we are back in Montreal again. I guess we did a little circle from Montreal to Quebec City and right back to Montreal. But our first day in Montreal, we were only able to see the evening. But today, we toured through Montreal in the day time. (more…)
