two after twenty

leah’s bakery.


Hey guys – I am SO sorry about my lack of posts around this little space. Things have been hectic, what with the start of classes and the Toronto International Film Fest! Unfortunately there’s no Monday Moment today again, but I’ll make it up with a post about Leah’s Bakery – I hope this wins me back some points!

A few years ago, when I lived at St. Clair West and Bathurst, I always found myself walking by Leah’s Bakery and never having the opportunity to step in for a quick coffee or snack. I’m so glad I finally had the chance to explore this cozy nook a few weeks ago with Senaa. Leah’s is much like my favourite Toronto bakery Ella’s Uncle. It’s a small space, but the inviting warmth of the staff and its niche within the community squashes any space issue.

Oh, and I grabbed myself a butter tart, Senaa the double chocolate brownie. Obviously there were no complaints – just delicious (and affordable) treats.

It’s Monday, so Happy Monday Moment, everyone! Taking some leaps into the abstract here – this was also from my lunch at Mildred’s Temple Kitchen. If you squint really hard, you can see the outline of the open kitchen!

+ I got a TUMBLR. After discovering some of my photos circulating the Tumblr world, I’ve decided to sign up and start one for myself! It’ll serve as an inspiration board, but also as a way to share some of my own photos.
+ Holy moly Instagram. How did I end up on their Suggested User list? Thanks, Instagram! Somehow being a Suggested User means you go from 5,000 followers to 13,000+ over the span of 3 days. Also, thank you thank you thank you to everyone who’s been so kind with their support and congratulations. I’m mega flattered! My instagram can be found here.
+ I’ve been listening to a lot of San Cisco. They kind of remind me of Vampire Weekend, actually. Digging Nepal this week.
+ My Instagram contacts impress me every day. Here are a few favourites: this stunner by artchang, this one by dearleila, and this one by jasenmartin.

Happy Monday Moment, friends. It’s a busy day today, but I was adamant about posting up a Moment on the blog this time! This one was taken during my lunch at >Mildred’s Temple Kitchen.

+ Currently listening to Fred Astaire by the awesome Australian band San Cisco.
+ A few weeks ago I was obsessed with Suits. Now I’m obsessed with The Good Wife (which I now prefer). Gah, too many law dramas.
+ There are too many talented pals on Instagram. Glued to these ones this week: this stunner by pketron, this one by issata, and this one by whitjohns.
