It's a chilly day outside so i'm curling up with a cuppa and the new(gigantic) September Issue...I know it's kinda old news but i'm still drooling over Kate's Wedding, so dreamy.

Isn't this cottage, outside of Helsinki, the cutest little thing ever?

Haha I saw this picture and burst out laughing partly because I do exactly this and partly because it's such a relief to know everyone else does it too! 
Also my roomies and I are having a big party this weekend and i've been trying to think of ways to flake out (at my own party...who does that?!) and then I got a call the other day telling me that i'd be out of town next weekend for work. 
(worst hostess ever eh?)

The other night I was looking through old vacation photos and came across this colourful bunch from a trip to South America a couple years ago!
I love all the bright pops of red and orange everywhere!

Isn't the clothing from the Japanese line mina perhonen so intriguing? 
I love the cosy toques!

Excuse me while I whinge for a minute.
For the past year or so i've been taking photos strictly on a film camera. It has been so exciting and eye-opening, waiting for the perfect moment to take a photo and then the anticipation of seeing it developed and usually being something completely different, and better, than what I had imagined. 
My most recent role of film has been in my camera for a few months now. There's pictures of springtime, and camping, food I baked and plants i'm growing, concerts I went to and friends I hung out with. I can see all the pictures so clearly in my mind. The other evening I went to take my last picture on the film, I snapped it and then waited for that audible click telling me the role was finished, nothing. I snapped another picture, nothing again. Giant pit in my stomach. 
I put the film in wrong, I wasn't paying attention. Months of photos and images gone. 
At first my frustration and disappointment were awful. How could I be so stupid? There's no way to ever get back those images and memories! I'll never be able to share them with others! What an Idiot! 
I just wanted to cry. 
It's been a couple of days now and i'm still pretty torn up about it. However i'm trying to think differently about the whole thing. It's just a little speck in the big picture, i'll probably have completely forgotten about it in a couple of months. And why do I need a camera to remember the lovely things I see and do? All those images that I took on film are still in my head, I remember them perfectly. I just need to let it go, take a deep breath, and put in a new role of film and start over. 

Lovin' this tumblr!

I'm going to see Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros tonight at the Edmonton Folk Fest! You sit on a little ski hill and the stage is on the bottom and you can see the whole city skyline from where ever your sitting, it's magical. 
P.S This is my new music crush from the last folk fest I was at!
