5 Things I love Wednesday.

1. A Bird Ballet.

2. 8tracks app for iPhone.
I love this app. I don't know why it hasn't really caught on as much as something like Pandora. You can either listen to your or your friends' mixes or search for mixes based on what kind of music you're into at the moment!

3. the cherry blossom girl's blog.
This lady is beautiful and has such amazing fashion sense! Plus, she really takes beautiful photographs. I love seeing all the Parisian scenes. :) All of her blog posts are written in French and English, so it also gives me an opportunity to brush up on my French!

5. sock buns!
If you don't know, a "sock bun" is basically like a foam donut hair device that you put around your pony-tail. You then take you hair and pin it around the sock bun to make a very full and tidy bun. I'm pretty sure the name sock bun came from the fact that you can cut the end off of a sock (thus making it like a cloth tube) and the roll it onto itself to make it like a donut which you would use in the same fashion as described above. You can purchase one at many places for $5 or less! I got mine at H&M, but I've heard of someone buying one at Claire's and I'm sure places like Sally's probably have them, as well.

Thanks for reading!

Looking forward to Montreal.

Next weekend, I will be returning to Montreal for the first time in over a year. I can't believe that I have been away for so long. Montreal still holds the key to my heart. I can see myself moving back there one day down the road.
I miss the culture, the feeling of closeness with one's neighbors, the independent businesses, the metro, the external staircases, and the crispness in the air. I cannot wait to bring my camera and capture some of the most beautiful aspects of the city, which in my opinion lie in the more commonplace moments of the day: a cup of coffee at the cafe, walking down any side-street between Saint Laurent and Saint Denis, meeting with friends on Parc Mont-Royal for Tam-Tams.
I figured I'd share some of my favorite photographs from my university years in Montreal:

I will be meeting up with one of my best friends in the entire world in Montreal, Jill Wayne. Montreal, as luck would have it, serves as the perfect meeting ground between Toronto and Albany. I will definitely be posting about our journey!

Thanks so much for reading. :)
