two after twenty

victoria’s banana bread.


I rarely bake. Like I’ve said in the past, I’m a bit of a terror in the kitchen (though with some exceptions). I wish I was more of a cook or a baker, and I’ve been trying to change this fact about myself because I love food so, so much … if you hadn’t guessed by now from my Instagram feed. So one day I had some old bananas lying around, some chocolate chips in my cupboard and a much-needed study break. This is when banana bread happened.

I asked my sis-in-law Victoria for her banana bread recipe. I had tried it a few months before and was blown away. Plus, she had mentioned it was easy (big plus!). With whisk, ingredients and camera ready, I went for it. And ta-da! I didn’t burn the banana bread. It was entirely edible. In fact, it was delicious! And my group members ended up eating it all. I’ll put this in the “win” box.










monday moment (seventy two).


Finally, a new Monday Moment post! It’s been a crazy few weeks, and this little blog has been a little ignored unfortunately – I’m so sorry for all of the quiet around here lately! This hectic schedule has made me really miss taking photos on a regular basis. I’m really itching to go shoot some 35mm with all these beautiful fall colours. Hopefully I can get around to that soon – the colours are perfect outside my window.

+ I’m obsessed with Lorde lately. For those who have only heard “Royals”, I strongly recommend the rest of her album – Royals is probably my least favourite track, and the rest of her album is absolute gold. My favourite track on Pure Heroine: 400 Lux – listen here. Also, how cool is this music video for Tennis Court? Two light sources and one take – simple and incred.
+ For Wes Anderson lovers – an absolutely AMAZING Saturday Night Live skit, “The Midnight Coterie of Sinister Intruders“.
+ Instagrams I’m digging this week: this one by dearleila, this one by junebugkim, and this one by the ever-so-talented michiesharine.

monday moment (seventy one).


Hi all, and happy Monday Moment everyone! It’s a dark, gloomy, rainy Monday here in Toronto. This weekend I stocked up on cozy, comfy sweaters for the fall, so I’m all ready for the cold (when it decides to show up, that is!).

+ Haim just released their new album, and you can listen to the full stream here. I’m currently loving Falling.
+ Instagrams I’m loving this week: this one by themeep, this one by nicole_franzen, and this one by my good friend kymchy.
