5 things I love Tuesday.

It's that time of the week again! I actually haven't done one of these in a while because for whatever twist of fate I always end up busy on Tuesdays. Today was not an exception, but I made a promise to myself I'd get this up and I do not regret the effort one bit!

It was hard to choose the five things I've been loving and/or lusting after recently because I try to keep my list varied and not entirely materialistic. Believe me, it would be rather simple for me to list five pairs of shoes I would love to own (read: typical girl), but I'm not so sure you all would find that very interesting. (:

Alas, I am especially happy with my list this week!

1. vines all over Albany.
If I could choose Albany's second nickname (the first being Smalbany), I would choose Vine City. That's really romanticized sounding, but so be it; Albany looks romantic with vines crawling every which way. Beside, I'm pretty sure at least 90% of people interested in photography would agree that the juxtaposition of nature and urban geometry rarely if ever gets old.
I mentioned in my last post that I want to make some artworks pertaining to vines. I plan on sticking to that! I just need to get ahold of some newspaper, gesso, and my paints.

2. bento boxes.
I've always been very intrigued by the concept of the bento box, but after reading reviews about this bento box cookbook, I'm pretty much sold/totally enamored.
Sometimes, I find myself in a rut when trying to eat healthy because I usually make my food interesting during the cooking process, but vegetables are, as you probably know, most nutritious when raw. These bento box recipes seem like they would always keep things fresh, literally and figuratively.

Also, this bento box is RIDICULOSLY cute. You can flip the band that holds it together either onto the happy panda eyebrow side or the angry panda eyebrow side. Eeek!!!

3. my double-faced watch.
This is my second purchase of this exact watch! I used to wear my old one every day until I lost it and I hadn't forgotten it since, so I decided to order the same exact one. I'm definitely happy with my decision. It's so unique and goes with basically anything! Although, I do have to deal with the occasional person asking "why would you wear a watch with two faces?" It's called fashion, people! Get with the program!

4. trying new hair styles.
'Nuff said.

I've loved Juliette Tang's book photography for a while. I feel as though I cannot look at her photos without conjuring up images of myself by an open window on a cool summer day with a book in one hand a steaming cup of tea in the other. You should definitely check out her work!
