it's that time of year again.. the toronto christmas market! this year was the first time i finally went (& actually got in)! last year, we walked ALL the way to the distillery district (which is really far, trust me..), only to find out there was an hour line up! to avoid a similar incident this year, we went on a weekday. there was beautiful christmas lights everywhere, hot cider, arts & crafts, giant german pretzels & most importantly the biggest christmas tree ever! ok, maybe not as big as NYC's but pretty close! hope you ejoy the photos, including my little grinch of a dog who was not feeling the christmas spirit that day! xo

thank you so much to gentle fawn for providing these beautiful clothes! check them out here. it is my absolute favourite clothing label!


this weekend i treated myself to something i have been pawning over for a while, a DSLR camera! i found a canon rebel for a great price on kijiji, so i figured what the hell. i have been wanting to work on my photography skills, especially when it comes to photographing food. i also recently purchased the book "plate to pixel", which taught me that a point & shoot camera was just not going to cut it. since getting the camera i have taken photos of just about anything i can... but mainly of my two favourite people: my dog, buddy holly (pomeranian/chihuahua ie. devil dog) and my boyfriend, justin. here are a few good shots i managed to take this weekend! cannot wait for my next food post & photo op:) xo
