Ume Kayo

While I was in Porto, Cristina introduced me to the wonderful work of Japanese photographer - Ume Kayo. Ofcourse, when I told my friend Miyako about my recent discovery, she said, "Ofcourse I've heard of her, she's famous!".
Well, there you have it my friends - clearly I've been living under a rock. ;)

So! Here are some of my favourite photos from 3 of her books...


Long Live Grandpa!:

Obrigado Cris! xoxo

Girl Brunch - L'Ouvrier

Every time, after our "girl brunch", I always leave feeling lucky that I know such lovely, talented and inspiring ladies. Here's a big thank you to Melinda, Nikki, Anabela, Nikole and Celine!

A couple weeks ago, we went to L'Ouvrier on Dundas St. West.

Loved this storefront nearby:

The six of us spent time catching up, sharing scones, enjoying our meal and indulging in the most delicious desserts (s'mores pie, flourless chocolate cake with crème fraîche, and a banana split/peanut butter panna cotta garnished with butterscotch toffee *drool*)...

Ofcourse I couldn't help constantly peeking at Nikole's beautiful shoes throughout the afternoon (hahaa)...

At home, I marveled at the wonderful gifts - a Weck jar from Anabela, bracelet from Celine, and tape from Melinda.

Thank you so much sweet ladies for yet another memorable gathering! xoxo
