cows in the fog

August 19, 2014

Sometimes you have to tell your friends to pull over immediately because you have to take photos of something seemingly silly - like cows - but then it ends up being so. worth. it. Fortunately my friends call me "lens" and they understand.

We went camping last weekend on the Bruce Peninsula and picked up some serious autumn vibes. It is hard to believe that the above photos were taken in mid-August! Although I was not mentally prepared to spend three consecutive days in my wool hat, blunnies and raincoat, we had such a good time.

iphone | lollapalooza & chicago

August 10, 2014

Here are some iphone snaps from Chicago and Lollapalooza (edited with snapseed + VSCOcam, as always) last week. I am starting to get seriously lazy about carrying around my 3.3 lbs camera...

Pictured above:
brunchlula cafe (It literally took 30 mins to decide on my order, everything looked/smelled/sounded delicious. Goat cheese and apricot french toast? Yes please. Seasonal, fresh, unique menu).
coffee: heritage bicycles + new wave coffee (Both places create killer lattes, but I preferred the vibe at the first).
drinks/view: 96th floor of the John Hancock building (Kind of touristy despite it being a seemingly popular drink/brunch spot for locals, but super worth the $$$ experience).
museum: art institute of chicago (Ugh, we stayed here for so long/too long/not long enough. So much Monet, and I thought that the Josef Koudelka photo exhibit was so! good!).

golden beet summer salad

July 31, 2014

I made this for a dinner party for my parents and all the grown ups loved it. I recommend it with a side of freshly grilled salmon and white wine. Yum! I love summer feasting. I imagine that adding couscous or quinoa would turn this side dish into a delicious veg meal.

Golden Beet Summer SaladBarely adapted from Women's Health Magazine, July/August 2014 issue
Serves 4-6 as a side

4 golden beets
4 radishes
4 carrots
4 oz soft goat cheese
3 tbls toasted pecan pieces
handful of parsley

Maple-Dijon Dressing:
3 tbls fresh lemon juice
3 tbls olive oil
3 tbls pure maple syrup
1 tbls dijon mustard

Using a mandolin, slice the beets, radishes, and carrots thinly. Toss all together in a bowl with the parsley and pecans, reserving some of each. Whisk together all dressing ingredients and pour into bowl, covering the veggies with it.

Place everything on a serving dish and sprinkle the salad with goat cheese and left over pecans and parsley.

I made a video of all the things we got up to in Copenhagen - six months of eating, dancing, picnicking, biking, rooftop shenanigans, and sunsets with amazing friends in the best city on earth. This is most of what we did when we weren't out partying until sunrise on the weekends. Thank you to my friend Maya for helping with the footage. Click through to Vimeo to view in HD!

One night, while I was flying solo, I decided to go out for dinner on Jaegersborggade. As I turned into the street I could hear some wonderful music being played not too far off. It did not feel real, but an audience of very content people were gathered on the street listening to live music, enjoying some drinks, smoking their cigarettes, and just relaxing as the sun went down. As Copenhageners do. I did not ask any questions, I just joined in.

Her haunting voice and lyrics and the silly laid back energy of all the band members automatically put me at ease. I let the music take me away, trying to forget about how all journeys come to an end. It was hands down one of my most unforgettable experiences of being abroad, perhaps because it was so spontaneous.They describe themselves as a "portable and lo-fi musical experiment - comprising banjo, cajon, accordion and a singer."
