After receiving the photos documenting the past two days from my friend (thanks Tanat!), it really made me miss photography and blogging. J's old roomie was visiting from Vancouver, so we decided to take him out to various places around Toronto. We started at Mildred's Temple Kitchen for brunch, and the fluffy pancakes did not disappoint. The next stop was Nadege for macarons! Out of all the Toronto patisseries, Nadege makes the best tasting macarons in my opinion..  but I do love Butter's friendly staff and convenient location. I'm going to try blogging more, mainly about food though until the cold weather dies down. Happy February everyone!

As promised, I had said that I would be returning as soon as the weather got warmer. Days are perfect in Toronto right now, and I'm trying to squeeze in as much outdoor time as I can. Each year I'm so surprised at how quickly the weather changes, it's like one day I'm freezing without a jacket and the next it's so hot people are wearing shorts out. Zero gradual change. Either way I have no complaints, and what better way to celebrate than with something sweet? The second photo is a shot of all the chocolate delicacies at The Firehall Confectionary in Main St Unionville. When it's nice outside, it's almost instinctual for me to pay a visit to Main St. I had my favourite banana split dippin' dots that day.. for those of you who don't know what it is, it's basically ice cream in the form of tiny little balls. Try it if you haven't.. it'll change your life. (For the time being, probably).

Currently,  I find myself engrossed in beauty and skin much more than apparel.. kind of obsessed with washing my face after watching this video featuring Isabelle Bellis. What is it about parisiennes? I'm actually pretty grateful that my skin's been good for the past half year or so. My skin was fine throughout highschool and then right when university started everything turned into a mess. Sometimes my skin would be completely fine, and then when exam period hit it'd get uber sensitive and irritated. I had suspected mangoes, shrimp, sashimi, and stress to be the culprits but since my skin has been good lately I decided to get experimental (so bad, I know), and eat all the things I mentioned. To my surprise, no reaction. It even stayed clear throughout exam season. So maybe it was just a phase of hormonal change or something weird.. I don't know. I'm just glad it's over.
