I wasn't supposed to include an ootd but I was able to ask a friend's fiancé to take shots of me with his new camera. His name is Kelvin. He lives in Toronto. And, you can see more of his work here.


Last Friday, the boy and I went on a double date with our friends, Arianne & Kelvin. I was looking for something to do in the city since Kelvin was just visiting from Toronto. I figured since he hasn't been to the Exchange District, it was the perfect time to join the First Fridays walking tour. The basic idea here is that artists open their studios to the public and art galleries have extended hours during first fridays of the month. You can download a map from their site and visit the spots on your own or you can join a guided tour that meets up at 7pm in the Peasant Cookery Bar.

For this particular one that I attended, we were able to see four artists/studios
1. Dave Krindle - Pigeon Alley Pottery
2. Sue Gordon - Encaustic (resin, beeswax & pigment)
3. Karen Schulz - drawings, paintings
4. Noel Bebee - digital paintings

Every month, there would be some variation with the galleries featured or the artists that would be part of the guided tour. So if you find yourself here in the city, free on a first friday of the month, why not check this out (hit me up if you want company, yes?).

  26. I can't really see from the picture, but if I guess right you're talking about Uniqlo leggings that look and feel like pants..aren't they the best? I've received a gift package last autumn from Uniqlo when they've opened in Los Angeles, and these leggings were inside, I can't get enough of them though I am not a leg gins type of girl, if you know what I mean:)
    But I love great ceramics...;)
